October surprise

Full article: October surprise

"Ronald Reagan, in 1979, sent George Bush, Richard Allen, and Donald Greg to two meetings, one in Paris France and one in Washington DC, to insure Carter was not re-elected. They negotiated with Manchari Gorbanifar (Iranian arms dealer), Bani Sadr (president of Iran and political puppet of the Kohmeni regime), Albert Hakim (arms dealer), and Hashem (diplomat of the Iranian government). Reagan's team promised that the US federal government would sell over one billion US dollars in American weapons to Iran if Iran would not release the American hostages until after the 1980 presidential election."[1]


Richard V. Allen was United States National Security Advisor for a year from January, 1981. Himself a member of Le Cercle, he took over from fellow Cercle member Zbigniew Brzezinski and when Allen resigned just a year later (due to Jonathan Kwitny's allegations about bribery), the job was handed to another Cercle member, William P. Clark, Jr..
