Iran-Contra Report

January 20, 1994

* Certainly, we need to see the Iran-Contra report (editorial, Jan. 10), but your assertion that Ronald Reagan did not know about the diversion of funds to the Nicaraguan guerrillas flies in the face of logic. It is an iron rule of bureaucracy that good news quickly gets to the top, and Reagan's obsession with overthrowing the Sandinistas was common knowledge.

At the risk of impeachment, this affair had to be closely kept, but this was no great problem for an Administration that so assiduously developed the concept of plausible deniability.
