Reagan, Iran, Contras and Breaching the Public Trust

December 16, 1986

Let me sort this out:

Ronald Reagan didn't know.

Donald Regan didn't know.

William Casey didn't know.

Once upon a time, in the middle of the last century, there was a political party known as the Know Nothings--because they professed to know nothing about unseemly activities attributed to them.

Who could have guessed that the Know Nothings would be running this country in 1986?
