Oliver North, Iran Contra, Fox News, Signed Photo, Coa For Sale
Oliver North (1943-). He is a retired U.S. Marine Corps officer, political commentator, host of "War Stories with Oliver North" on Fox News Channel, a military historian, and a New York Times best-selling author. North was at the center of national attention during the Iran-Contra affair, a political scandal of the late 1980s. North was a National Security Council staff member involved in the clandestine sale of weapons to Iran, which served to encourage the release of U.S. hostages from Lebanon. North formulated the second part of the plan: diverting proceeds from the arms sales to support the Contra rebel groups in Nicaragua (funding to the Contras had been prohibited under the Boland Amendment amidst widespread public opposition in the U.S. and controversies surrounding human rights abuses by the Contras). North was charged with several felonies and convicted of three, but the convictions were later overturned on legal technicalities, and the underlying charges dismissed due to the limited immunity agreement granted for his pre-trial public Congressional testimony about the affair. He would later join FOX News, serving with other commentators who faced major legal difficulties such as G. Gordon Liddy. His signature, with inscription, on an 8" x 10" color photo.
