The proceedings begin with opening statements from Senate and House committee members, including chairmen Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI) and Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-IN). After two hours, testimony begins with Gen. Secord, who is testifying voluntarily and without legal immunity. Secord describes the network of private companies, known as the “enterprise,” that was used to sell arms to Iran and channel money and supplies to the contras. Secord answers questions concerning the profits generated by the arms sales, the money that actually went to the contra supply effort, and money that remained in Swiss bank accounts. close
