Reagans signature can be fined next to him and authorizing the paramilitary was against Nicaragua. This proves that the president knew that this war was going on, even though in many of the trial he states that he did not know the severity of this.

The language, is intentionally vague enough to justify violent actions by the Contras and the CIA.
This provides the argument that Reagans whole goal was to fight communism, as he found every loophole to do that such thing. With putting language to allow for the acts of the Contras to seem not as bad and almost necessary for this goal. This helps with the understanding why this was all begin which is mentioned earlier in the writing that the reasons why Nicaragua was chosen was its relations with Cuba and Fedal himself.
