SCOTUS nominee Roberts underwrote Iran-Contra drug operations

This is why it pays to follow general politics and a good reason to call your Senators and tell them to vote against the confirmation of John Roberts. Steve Soto at The Left Coaster has the details on how Robert's fingerprints were all over the Iran-Contra drug trafficking operations. He wrote the legal memo that allowed them to set up a humanitarian agency as a cover for the drug running they did there.

Those of you old enough to have witnessed this chapter in US history will remember a lot of people were indicted in Iran-Contra. Few did time, most were pardoned, many of them are now back in positions of power in the Bush administration.

A lot of the paperwork has been "disapppeared" by the Rove scrub team but Kerry was instrumental in the original hearings. The question is can he rise to the challenge again?
