SENATOR KERRY ON THE FAILURE OF THE REAGAN DOCTRINE

WASHINGTON, MAY 5

THE IRANGATE IS A PROOF NOT ONLY OF ABUSE OF POWER BY A FEW OFFICIALS OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IN THE USA BUT ALSO OF THE FAILURE OF THE WHOLE "REAGAN DOCTRINE", SENATOR JOHN KERRY WRITES IN TODAY'S WASHINGTON POST.

THIS DOCTRINE, HE POINTS OUT, IS BASED ON A CORE ASSUMPTION OF SUPPORTING THE SO-CALLED ANTICOMMUNIST FORCES AS LONG AS THEY WILL COUNTEROPPOSE COMMUNISM. UNDER THE DOCTRINE, COVERT OPERATIONS PRESENT THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY OF ACHIEVING THIS GOAL. THE ARMS SALES TO IRAN AND THE DIVERSION OF PART OF THE PROCEEDS TO CONTRAS WERE CARRIED OUT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REAGAN DOCTRINE AND PROVED ANEW ITS INCONSISTENCY BECAUSE IT IS BASED ON A FLAGRANT VIOLATION OF LAW, KERRY CONCLUDES.
