In November 1986, the Reagan administration became embroiled in the Iran-Contra Affair, a scandal that saw the National Security Council secretly selling weapons to the newly hostile regime in Iran, using the profits of these sales to fund the Contras in Nicaragua. The scandal would haunt the Reagan administration for years, and create further disillusionment in the American people about the priorities and intentions of their government and intelligence agencies. In this episode of Big, If True, Matt and Kayla discuss the Iran-Contra Affair, breaking down the histories of Nicaragua and Iran, and detailing the events that led to the conspiracy being leaked to the public.
