Congress is expected to act this week for or against President Reagan's request for $100 million in aid to the Nicaraguan Freedom Fighters (contras) . The focus of national attention has been directed almost entirely on the legitimacy of the Freedom Fighters and their relative ability or inability, depending on one's point of view, to successfully prosecute a democratic revolution against the Marxist-Leninist regime of the Sandinistas. The debate over this issue is a question of neither legitimacy nor viability with respect to the Freedom Fighters.
