Dec. 28, 1998, statement by the president:

President Clinton: Ladies and gentlemen, before I get into my remarks … I think I should say a few words about an incident early this morning over the skies of Iraq, where American and British air crews were enforcing a no-fly zone in Northern Iraq. They were fired on by Iraq[i] surface-to-air missiles. They took evasive action, returned fire on the missile site, and returned safely to their base in Turkey … They attacked because they were attacked. And they did the appropriate thing. We will continue to enforce the no-fly zones.
