President Reagan's Speech About Barry Seal's Undercover Mission

Watch President Ronald Reagan's address to the nation on Nicaragua and Central America, delivered from the Oval Office on November 13, 1986. In his address, Reagan talks about a photo taken by a hidden camera on Barry Seal's plane. The photo shows Federico Vaughan, who Seal claimed was a top aide to Tomas Borge, the Nicaraguan government's Minister of the Interior. If true, it proved that the Sandinista government of Nicaragua was indeed involved in the drug trade, and it provided evidence for the need to back the rebel armies (Contras).
