(from the Leader of the Decaying World video):
One program that went awry, and got uncovered, was what became known as the Iran contra affair. This was one of those complex schemes that seems typical of black programs. The plot was hatched, supposedly to free American hostages, and the Israelis - as usual - were part of the complex plan. In violation of an arms embargo, the US government sold arms to Iran, with Israel's Mossad acting as a hidden agent handling the shipment. Part of the illegal scheme where uncovered, the schemers changed the flow of funds, and money got diverted to fund Nicaraguan contras. When the plans came to light, a colonel called Oliver North got hauled in front of an investigation in the US congress. North gave a great performance at the hearings, and managed to win over a compliance congress, and much of the American public., who were then very naive about the many creative schemes used to fund "black ops", hidden and secret. (There were also rumors, which are ongoing, that the has US been involved in narcotics to fund its secret operations.)

How much Reagan knew, and when he knew it was a subject of discussion on the floor of congress. Reagan was believed to know only about the Nicaraguan part of the plan, and was a supporter of the Contras. The involvement of then-Vice President Bush was lightly examined - and it seems probable that he would have had greater knowledge and much greater involvement than the President. Reagan was called the "teflon president", to whom nothing stuck. And in this case, his "super power" seems to have extended to his Vice President too. The public's memory was short. At one time the scandal was thought to make Bush unelectable. But he went on to win the nomination unopposed, and go on to beat Michael Dukakis in the 1988 election, marking a rare three consecutive victories for Republicans. The good economy, and a stable international stage were seen as assets that made this near-miracle possible. This "achievement" also allowed the black military operations to go on growing
The scandal did not come out by accident.
Harvard-trained lawyer, Daniel Sheehan was involved:
Dan and his Christic Institute colleagues uncovered and investigated the infamous "Off-The-Shelf, Stand Alone, Self-Financing 'Private' Covert Operations ENTERPRISE" OF Lt. Colonel Oliver North and The Reagan/Bush Administration and then triggered The Iran-Contra Scandal with their filing of the Federal Criminal Racketeering Act civil lawsuit against 29 of the "retired" former C.I.A. and U.S. Pentagon covert operations specialists who were the founders and leaders of that "ENTERPRISE." While that suit failed to secure a final civil judgment, it succeeded in uncovering - and publicly-exposing - the long-time pattern of criminal activity conducted by those individuals inside the US intelligence community.
