With Ronald Rea­gan’s knowl­edge and sup­port, the Unit­ed States attempt­ed to trade arms for hostages held by Iran­ian ter­ror­ists; some of the secret mon­ey then fund­ed the guer­ril­la activ­i­ties of the Nicaraguan Con­tras, a counter-rev­o­lu­tion­ary group that Con­gress had specif­i­cal­ly for­bid­den the admin­is­tra­tion to sup­port. In this his­toric, first-per­son account, the inde­pen­dent coun­sel in the Iran-Con­tra inves­ti­ga­tion expos­es the extra­or­di­nary duplic­i­ty of the high­est offi­cials of the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion and the par­a­lyz­ing effects of the cov­er-up.
