WASHINGTON — The massive report of the congressional Iran- contra committees will be made public Oct. 28 or 29, and "will be controversial," Senate panel chairman Daniel K. Inouye said today.
The Senate committee met today for members to review the first draft of the report, most of which is a narrative on how the affair unfolded. A chapter summarizing events is now in its fifth draft, said Inouye (D-Hawaii).
"It's going to be controversial," he said. "I don't know if all of the members will sign on," an indication that some might choose to file dissenting views.
"Some think it's not strong enough, others think it's too strong," added Sen. Warren B. Rudman (R-N.H.), the panel's ranking Republican.
