October Surprise The House Rules Committee met to begin the first of two hearings concerning the investigation into the October Surprise. That refers to the allegations that the 1980 Ronald Reagan Campaign made a deal with the Iranian government to delay the release of the 52 American hostages that were being held at the U.S. embassy in Tehran until after Mr. Reagan’s January, 1991 inauguration. Recently, the House leadership agreed to set up a task force to look into those allegations. The hearing focused on the mechanics of setting up a group that will investigate the allegations. close
