WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House Iran-Contra committee said today that Vice President George Bush's position on arms sales to Iran will continue to be an issue until Bush responds to unanswered questions.
"There are a long list of questions that I don't know the answers to," Rep. Lee H. Hamilton (D-Ind.) said in an interview on "CBS This Morning."
"The position of the vice president remains unclear with respect to the sale of arms to Iran and until it is clear, I think it'll continue to be an issue."
For months, Bush, a GOP presidential candidate, has sought to put the Iran-Contra episode behind him. "Mistakes were made. And now, let's go on about the nation's business," he said last November when the congressional Iran-Contra committees released a 690-page report about the affair.
