BE PREPARED

From a recent press release: "Oliver North, a combat-decorated Marine officer, former host of the radio's Common Sense, and the host of War Stories on the Fox News Channel, will be the guest speaker at the Chickasaw Council of the Boy Scouts' 'Friends of Scouting' dinner Wednesday, March 2nd at the University of Memphis Holiday Inn." The release goes on to list North's many feats of derring-do and states, "In the 1980s, North was a key figure during the Congressional Iran-Contra investigation." May we assume that "key figure" means "investigated for abetting Contra terrorism in Nicaragua as part of an illegal operation that put weapons into the hands of anti-American despots in the Persian Gulf?"
