Letters: Capitol Hearings

To the Editors:

Your cover story conveyed the spirit of that most unusual week in which Lieut. Colonel Oliver North appeared at the Iran-contra hearings ((NATION, July 20)). Along with many others, I was converted to North's side by the end of the first day. I realize I may be overlooking the issues, but for me it was a relief to cheer for this charismatic all-American Marine in his struggle against a fickle, vacillating, unpredictable Congress.

I am grateful for the opportunity to hear North explain his side of the story. How foolish he makes a lot...
