Bush Taps Iran-Contra Figure Elliot Abrams to Promote Democracy

Amy Goodman, from Democracy Now! interviews Roberty Parry, the veteran journalist who broke the Iran-Contra scandal, regarding president Bush’s promotion of Elliot Abrams.

Democracy Now! writes: President Bush promoted Elliott Abrams to be his deputy national security adviser. He will be responsible for pushing Bush’s strategy of advancing democracy abroad – a central theme in the president’s inaugural address and his State on the Union.

Abrams is a special assistant to the president and was an assistant secretary of state in the Reagan administration. He played a key role in the Iran-Contra scandal and pleaded guilty in 1991 to withholding information from Congress.
