10/5/2008: Complete but Incomplete...
We have created a “complete” timeline of events for Iran-Contra, covering, we believe, the major events of that affair. However, much remains to be done in adding context, filling in gaps, and documenting the actions of many individuals who are not as yet covered completely. We only covered a few of the many, many sections of Lawrence Walsh’s final report, a treasure trove of information. We have not as yet read and incorporated information from Walsh’s Firewall: The Iran-Contra Conspiracy and Cover-Up. Robert McFarlane’s role in the affair remains sketchily documented. In other words, much remains to be added. If you’re interested in continuing and enhancing our coverage, please volunteer!
