Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Abrams, Elliott
Abstract: In this interview, Elliott Abrams discusses the situation in Nicaragua and makes the argument for American support of the Contras.
Description: In this episode of American Interests, host Peter Krogh sits down for a conversation with Elliott Abrams. Abrams served as Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs under President Reagan, and was a primary architect of U.S. Central America policy for much of the 1980s. A prominent advocate of American aid to the Contras, Abrams would eventually be implicated in the Iran-Contra affair.

In this interview, Abrams makes the case for continued support of the anti-communist forces waging war against the Sandinista regime, and discusses the situation on the ground in Nicaragua.
