    A real hero. Too few of men like this in Congress today.
    The report above has one statement that is false: Reagan did not sell missiles to Iran in exchange for hostages, the hostages had already been released on the day Carter left the White House. On the surface the missiles were sold to have funds to send to the Contras in Central America.
