Iran-Contra alum behind Terror Psychic Network

The Idiot who came up with the “Ter­ror Psy­chic Net­work” is leav­ing the Pen­ta­gon over the flap. What’s even more strik­ing is his iden­tity: it’s John Poindex­ter, one of the peo­ple at the heart of the Iran-Contra scan­dal that rocked the Rea­gan Admin­is­tra­tion.
For those too young to remem­ber, in the Iran-Contra affair Reagan’s kook­i­est spooks secretly sold arms to U.S. arch­en­emy num­ber 1 (Iran) in order to cir­cum­vent Con­gres­sional demands that they not fund an oppo­si­tion army against U.S. arch­en­emy num­ber 2 (Nicaragua), with the money being fun­neled through the coun­try that then and now still inex­plic­a­bly isn’t pub­lic enemy num­ber 3 (Saudi Ara­bia). It was the cir­cuitous­ness of it all more than any­thing that kept Rea­gan out of jail for all of this.
Why Poindex­ter was ever allowed back any­where near Wash­ing­ton, much less the Pen­ta­gon, is a mys­tery. Here are some arti­cles on Poindexter’s return to Wash­ing­ton and return of the Iran-Contra crew to the (Bush II) White House. Here’s another arti­cle on the res­ig­na­tion of the Rea­gan crook turned Bush-II fool.
