“Secret Squirrel” 25 years later

The Eighth Air Force Commander, Maj. Gen. Richard Clark, talks about the importance of Operation Senior Surprise, aka "Secret Squirrel," and the establishment of global power and superiority that that mission proved at the beginning of Operation Desert Storm. Clark's keynote address began the Secret Squirrel Symposium at Louisiana State University, Shreveport, La. on Jan. 16, 2016. During the mission thirty-five cruise missiles were launched from seven B-52 Stratofortress bombers targeting strategic and tactical targets in Iraq. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt.
