    How totally interesting, the Al Yamama bribery issue was in 1987...Iran Contra 1987.. this is the first time I have seen the link. Lysias I wonder if any of the front pagers have thought about the connection?

      according to the Guardian story.  I believe that's also the year Iran-Contra started.  Since Iran-Contra was revealed to the public in November '86, it had to stop at that point.

      So Iran-Contra was no longer going on in '87.  The bribes to Bandar apparently continued to be paid for 10 years.  But there was time for the two matters to be connected before Nov. '86.
