In foreign affairs, it seems unpatriotic to criticize the President, and, the intertwined plots were too darn complex to grasp:
•Sending aid to overthrow the government of Nicaragua in defiance of a clear act of congress,

• And, profits made on the arms deals went to the Nicaragua "Contra" effort.
