Iran-Contra

Full article: Stub class article “Iran-Contra”

1987 marked the investigation of the Iran contra affair, which may have been a failed bid by George H. W. Bush to end Ronald Reagan's presidency.[1] It was however successful at keeping a lid on the emerging details about CIA drug trafficking and associated crimes of the enterprise. A 1998 Washington Post short review of the case made no mention of either drugs or the name George H. W. Bush.[2]
