Milestones

Ten years ago: In an attempt to eliminate a superpower stumbling block, West Germany said it would destroy its 72 Pershing 1A rockets if Washington and Moscow scrapped all their intermediate-range nuclear weapons.

Five years ago: A federal judge declared a mistrial in the Iran-Contra cover-up trial of former CIA spy chief Clair George (George was convicted of perjury in a retrial, but was then pardoned by President Bush).

One year ago: Democrats opened their national convention in Chicago. Barbara Jewell, mother of security guard Richard Jewell, called on President Clinton to clear her son’s name in connection with the Centennial Olympic Park bombing (Jewell was later cleared).
