Reagan Stuff You Didn't Know

...from a new book on Bill Clark, (The Judge) whose author is interviewed by FrontPage:

Really, basically the entire book is new. It is worth your time for the chapter on Suriname alone (chapter 10). [Bet you didn't know that country almost went Commie...] Also worth the pricetag is the 1982 case of Reagan threatening to shoot down Soviet MiGs in Nicaragua, which was communicated to the Soviets, and the heretofore unreported French offer in 1981 to assassinate Moammar Kaddafi.

Another unrecorded account is how Reagan asked Clark to go to China to advise on whether the United States should get involved in a civil engineering project known as Three Gorges Dam. Clark did so, and reported that we should stay out of it. As usual, Reagan took Clark’s advice. Good move!

Finally, we report brand new information on Clark’s secret meeting with Saddam Hussein in January 1986. Clark confirmed in this book that we did not arm Saddam Hussein, especially with WMDs or WMD technology, despite what the moonbat left has recklessly alleged.

The author also mentions The Leakers by name, as well as the "moderates"--like Nancy.
