Rate this:
In 1984, Congress enacted the Boland Amendment, which prohibited the use of federal funds to supply the contras in Nicaragua. The Reagan administration had been providing support to the contras in hopes that they would overthrow the leftist Sandinista government, curtailing the spread of communism in Latin America. In 1985, Colonel Oliver North, a member of the National Security Council, secretly began funneling money from the covert sale of weapons to Iran into an account earmarked for the contras. President Reagan denied knowledge of North's activities, dismissed him, and appointed the Tower Commission to investigate the Iran-Contra affair.
