  •  Now You're Just Makin' Shit Up (none)
    The hostage thing was after the election.  In September, most pundits and polls were suggesting that Carter would beat Reagan.  And just because you say "it is known" doesn't mean shit.  C'mon, if you're really the master of Google, you'd give me a link to a credible source and not hide behind the sophistry of "it is known."

    The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

    •  Read Robert Parry (none)
      Try former Newsweek journalist, Robert Parry, as a jumping off point.  He broke the Iran/Contra story and was close to this October Surprise story.

      It IS commonly known to people who read books and do not simply rely on the Washington Cosensus to understand our world.  Several books have been written solely on the subject.   A more recent book, American Dynasty by conservative Kevin Phillips, has a couple of dozen pages dedicated to the topic and provides a nice summary as well, but start with Parry.
