Excerpt from Report of the Congressional Committees Investigating the Iran-Contra Affair: Appendix C, Chronology of Events The Report of the investigation is ajoint publication ofthe House Select Com mitice to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran and the Senate Select Committee on Secret Military Assistance to Iran and the Nicaraguan Opposi tion. This Chronology, however, was prepared by the staff at the direction of the House Select Committee as an Appendix to the joint Report. Minority Members of the Select Committee filed a brief critique of the Chronology. The Senate Select Committee also prepared a chronology that is largely based on the joint public hearings held by the two Select Committees. The House Select Committee took several steps to make this document something ofa roadmap to guide students through iran-contra and to encourage further study of this historic time. Each entry is dated in a way that readers can easily determine the timeframe. When the date could not be pinpointed precisely. That fact is indicated. Each item is labeled to indicate at a glance to which facet of iran-contra the entry relates. The entries include Presidential statements and Congressional actions. This format helps to demonstrate the interaction and the meshing of iran-contra events; the interplay and maneuvering of private agents and Federal Government officials who were secretly selling arms to terrorist Iran to free American hostages - contrary to us. Public policy-and secretly diverting money from the sale to buy weapons for the Contras - also contrary to public policy and perhaps in violation ofthe law. It weaves together what was being said and done publicly and being said and done privately by this group of Government officials and private agents.
