Program Title:
What I know of the Iran-Contra affair : confessions of a journalist / Murray Waas ; interviewed by Dennis Bernstein.
PRA Archive #: 
AZ0994
Description: 

Investigative journalist Murray Waas discusses his research into Reagan-Bush covert actions which included arms sales to Iran and support for the Contra rebels. These actions typified the foreign policy of both Presidents, where U.S. laws meant nothing to the political leadership. He discusses policies toward Iraq, our interest in Middle Eastern oil development, the diversion of arms to Iraq in violation of the U.S. Arms Export Control Act, and how Bush continued supporting Iraqi military development after the end of the Iran-Iraq war. He goes on to praise Congressman Henry Gonzalez for investigating Bush foreign policy, and how Bush's policies are the largest threat to the Constitution since the Watergate affair.|WHAT I KNOW OF THE IRAN-CONTRA AFFAIR : CONFESSIONS OF A JOURNALIST / Marray Waas| interviewed by Dennis Bernstein. - Investigative journalist Murray Waas discusses his research into Reagan-Bush covert actions which included arms sales to Iran and support for the Contra rebels.
