The act on the part of the Iranian Khomeini government of releasing the 444 American hostages being held in Teheran as a protest against President Carter not sending the deposed Shah of Iran back to his native country for trial on the very day of Reagan's inaugural, along with other tantalyzing facts gnawing at the imagination, prompted Parry to go to work in earnest. Some of his reports from The Consortium, the Arlington, Virginia think tank in which he is involved, were produced on the PBS documentary series "Frontline."
When a Congressional investigation cleared the Reagan campaign team led by William Casey from any collusory wrongdoing with the Khomeini regime prior to the election of making a deal to withhold release of the hostages in exchange for arms, Parry was suspicious. He was tenacious enough to locate a discarded report from the Russian government in a remote storage room on Capitol Hill. The report which, no doubt, was believed to have been permanently discarded, revealed knowledge of future CIA director Casey, Reagan running mate George H.W. Bush, and another future CIA director, Robert Gates, having secretly met with Iranian government operatives during the 1980 campaign in Madrid and Paris.Read more ›
