Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers
The Cold War is making a cameo on the international stage in November when major political figures of the time join in a reunion to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall 20 years ago. Whispers hears that former Kremlin chief Mikhail Gorbachev, former West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, and former President George H. W. Bush plan to huddle in Berlin to talk about the tumultuous—but surprisingly peaceful—times that led to the end of the Cold War and breakup of the Soviet Union.
