Democracy in Central America

August 30, 1987

In response to the growing acceptance of the Arias plan for peace in Central America, there has been intensified debate as to whether the U.S. should continue aid to the contras following the expiration of the current appropriation on Sept. 30. However, it seems that one of the key issues has not been much discussed

Does the Sept. 30 deadline apply only to those funds of which the Congress and the public are aware, or would solicitations from Third World countries in exchange for future considerations and/or funds derived from the proceeds of secret transactions by governmental agencies also be affected? And, if so, how would we know?
