The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee has called for a Pentagon investigation into whether Congress was misled by the official account of the downing of an Iranian commercial airliner by a Navy cruiser four years ago. Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) is asking the Pentagon to determine whether the shooting down of the passenger jet occurred during covert operations by the Navy designed to provoke Iranian attacks as part of a U.S. effort to assist Iraq in the final stages of the Iran-Iraq War.
