But that was Saint Reagan, hallowed be his name! Of course he could do no wrong!
(And one can add that it was done in violation of the Iran embargo and behind the back of not only the American people, but Congress, which had passed a law expressly forbidding the Reagan administration from supporting the Contras.

But that was back in the days when even Republican politicians had a spine and a sense of shame. Now that's long gone of course.)
