“He was a bit nervous on camera for my taste, but he absolutely did the right thing.”

Haig was Chief of Staff at that time. He was a military man, by experience, not a US Conbstitution career scholar.

I agree he did nothing really out of line, based on the situation, and what I mentioned above.

I’m fine with just going with Gates. I like him. Forgetabout Obama.

Haig was Secretary of State at the time. He was Nixon’s Chief of Staff.

When Reagan was shot, he was the highest-ranking person in the Executive Branch in DC (Bush was hustled onto AF 2, and was enroute when Haig made that speech).
