Career

He was trained as a crytanalyst and recruited by the CIA. He was CIA station chief in South Korea from 1973 to 1975, an assignment he personally requested.

Iran-Contra

He was an associate of George H. W. Bush, Gregg was involved in Iran-Contra from the inception. On March 17, 1983, fellow Operation 40 member, Felix Rodriguez met with Gregg at the White House and presented a five-page proposal for the creation of a "Tactical Task Force" for the "pacification" efforts in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Gregg then recommended Rodriguez' plan to United States National Security Council adviser Robert McFarlane, with a secret one-page memo on "anti-guerrilla operations in Central America". This marked the beginning of U.S. support for the Nicaraguan contras. In June 1985, Gregg met with Rodriguez and U.S. Army Colonel Jim Steele of the U.S. Military Group in El Salvador during the height of the guerrilla war.[1] In December 1985 Rodriguez attended Bush's White House Christmas party and was introduced as an old friend of Gregg's. In January 1986 Rodriguez met with Gregg's deputy in Salvador. In May 1986 Rodriguez met with Gregg, Bush, and Oliver North in Bush's office. In August 1986 Gregg met with Rodriguez and Bush. (Gregg soon met with Alan Friers to support arms purchases from Rodriguez instead of Richard Secord.) John K. Singlaub warned North in September 1986 that too much contact with Rodriguez would be bad for the Administration.
