A signed Document by President Reagan authorizing actions “to counter foreign-sponsored subversion and terrorism” in Central America and encourage governments across the world to provide support, with briefings to Congress. One of the first piece of evidence that provides an insight of the CIA and the administration sneaking around in the goal to start the sending of funding to the contras in the goal that the rest of congress would follow further.
This is Important as it provides a clear evidence that the president Reagan allowed for this action to be passed, as often the blame is set on the CIA but this proves that this was the clear actions of the president. It states that all support that is deemed necessary to such the operations, as long as it is important to the American Security. It is very important to remember that this is the start of the relations with Reagan beginning using his powers negatively in the goal of stopping communism at the cost of human lives.
