The Nation

December 20, 1987

The Internal Revenue Service has revoked the tax-exempt status of a foundation headed by retired Army Maj. Gen. John K. Singlaub, saying it failed to prove it was not helping the Contras militarily in Nicaragua. The U.S. Council for World Freedom, which raises money to help foreign anti-communist movements, will file a federal court suit this week to fight the IRS decision, spokesmen said. Spokeswoman Joyce Downey denied the organization engaged in anything other than humanitarian aid but acknowledged that the group bought two helicopters, four small planes and three high-speed boats. All were for medical transport and humanitarian supplies for the Contras, not for military use, she said.
