Iran-Contra Investigation Day 28 Part 1 Lt.Colonel Oliver North was questioned further by committee members, including Representative Boland on the Boland amendment. The committee chairs then directed summary statements to North. Representative Lee Hamilton points to the arms-for-hostages arrangement as undermining U.S. policy. He also comments on the need for covert actions to be conducted within procedural guidelines. Hamilton concluded that "democracy has its

frustrations but we know of no better system of government; and

when that democratic process is subverted, we risk all that we cherish."

Senator Daniel Inouye refers to the popular support for North, especially among young people. Inouye comments that he voted against aid to the Contras because it would inevitably lead to young people being sent into the conflict.
