Yet, during 1993, there appeared to be tension between David Gergen (Clinton’s White House counsellor, and a registered Republican) and Tony Lake. By July 1994, the WP was reporting ‘bitter tension’ between the White House and the State Department. 69 Christopher and Lake clashed over policy towards Haiti in 1994. As White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta observed in 1995, when the NSA clashed with other members of the Clinton team, there were ‘very few times that Tony ultimately is reversed or changed’.

Reflecting both Republican pressure and the new international confidence, the administration began to move in a unilateralist direction. On some issues, such as the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CNTBT; rejected by the Senate in October 1999), it was a matter of the US Congress applying its unilateralist stamp to policy. The administration also had little choice but to accept unilateralist measures such as the Helms–Burton legislation on Cuba. The new willingness (notably in the military actions taken against Sudan and Afghanistan, as well as in Kosovo) to act without UN sanction, however, was more the product of administration confidence than of any legislative pressure.
