Abstract (Document Summary)

Representatives of various media in Washington have held a couple of meetings with Victoria "Torie" Clarke, the Pentagon's chief spokeswoman. They are to meet again today in an effort to reach a compromise on coverage. But she has told them not to be optimistic.

The public was outraged. What they did not know was "Nayirah," was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Her story was discredited by Amnesty International and later by Kuwaiti investigators. As it turned out, Nayirah was coached by the public relations firm of Hill and Knowlton - where Clarke, the current Pentagon spokeswoman, once worked.
