Joffe, Josef
May 1993
U.S. News & World Report;5/31/93, Vol. 114 Issue 21, p27
Takes a look at the rules of real leadership and compares them with the D+ performance of President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Warren Christopher in the run-up to the trans-Atlantic war of epithets over Bosnia. An uncertain trumpet won't rally the troops; Make sure the troops are ready before raising the flag; If you don't know where you are going, don't expect others to follow.
