As Bubba Bush and his Petroleum Club buddies who run our government try to whip us into a frenzy over Iran's steady march toward membership in the Nuclear Club, let's not forget who helped get us to this point. From an Associated Press article about Sandinista Daniel Ortega's election to the Nicaraguan presidency:
The race has generated intense international interest, including a visit by Oliver North, the former [Reagan] White House aide at the heart of the Iran-Contra controversy. That effort to oust Ortega's Moscow-leaning Sandinista regime created a huge scandal in the United States when it became known that Washington secretly sold arms to Iran
and used the money to fund and arm the Contra operation.
