Tony and Armand sit down to discuss a very topical issue of the 1980's, the Iran-Contra affair. On this day, Ronald Reagan gave the C.I.A. authority to recruit and support Contra rebels in Nicaragua. Also, we will learn about a discovery made by Edwin Hubble, the People's Republic of China sending representatives to attend the United Nations for the first time, and John Milton's publishing of “Areopagitica”. It all happened on This Day In History!
