1988 Crossfire Classic: Soviet military capabilities

As we count down to the re-launch of Crossfire, our new hosts are looking back at amazing moments from the program’s 23-year history.

Newt Gingrich shows a night in 1988 when figures from the Kennedy and Bush eras debate U.S. defense. Former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara & about-to-be Vice President Dan Quayle were in the Crossfire discussing the Soviet Union’s military defense capabilities in the final days of the socialist state.

Crossfire returns to CNN on September 16, airing weekdays at 6:30pm ET.
