5.0 out of 5 stars no wonder George W. Bush doesn't want documents released!, March 23, 2003
This review is from: Coverup - Behind the Iran-Contra Affair [VHS] (VHS Tape)
If George W. Bush were to let presidential documents to be released, it would mean the certain end of the Republican Party in the United States. And this video reveals why. There were lots of under-handed deals going on even before Ronald Reagan entered the White House followed by many overt and covert operations instigated and approved by the United States government. The release of information revealing what was really going on during the Reagan administration would cause irreparable damage to George W.'s current cohorts such as Elliot Abrams and John Poindexter, perhaps even to the administration itself.
The only criticism I have is that this video seemed to go on a lot of tangents which were not completely relevant to the Iran-Contra scandal per se, such as the graphic scenes of the bombing of La Penca or linking Oliver North to the training of the Contras. However, this could be forgiven because information released by the various agencies was meager and they covered what was available.
The REX-84 plan has a remarkable resemblance to the current round-up of so-called unlawful combatants. The video revealed that REX-84 was a plan to detain aliens from Latin American countries in camps in case of a serious federal emergency or break-down of the government. The sole deviation from the plan seems to be that it is people of Middle Eastern descent rather than people from Latin America who are being detained.
I would recommend this video as a gift to anyone enamored with Ronald Reagan or the Reagan administration. They may change their minds.
