Course Description

In light of the turmoil surrounding the current administration, it may be valuable to look back to a controversy that engulfed a prior administration. In the fall of 1986, the covert and illegal enterprise of supplying arms to an insurgency in Central America and to the Iranian government, in its war with Iraq, burst out of its classified vaults on to the headlines of global media. The Reagan administration went into full cover-up mode in order to protect the president, who had been ardently directing these policies. In this course, participants will journey from the early events that laid the groundwork for the deceitful endeavor through to the ignominious conclusion six years later when another president, himself a participant, pardoned the conspirators. The course will incorporate lecture, discussion, and historic photos and videos.
