ABSTRACT

Final Report of the Independent Counsel for Iran/Contra Matters   [open pdf - 840KB]

"In October and November 1986, two secret US. Government operations were publicly exposed, potentially implicating Reagan Administration officials in illegal activities. These operations were the provision of assistance to the military activities of the Nicaraguan contra rebels during an October 1984 to October 1986 prohibition on such aid, and the sale of U.S. arms to Iran in contravention of stated U.S. policy and in possible violation of arms-export controls. In late November 1986, Reagan Administration officials announced that some of the proceeds from the sale of U.S. arms to Iran had been diverted to the contras. [...] The investigations and prosecutions have shown that high-ranking Administration officials violated laws and executive orders in the Iran/contra matter."
