North ends testimony against Poindexter
WASHINGTON (AP) - Oliver
North testified yesterday that he
didn't "feel good" after ling to
Congress to conceal secret aid to the
Nicaraguan Contras even though he
was praised by his boss, John
North concluded his testimony by
insisting that he violated no laws by
lying during the Aug. 6, 1986,
meeting at the White House with
members of House Permanent Select

Committee on Intelligence.
But the former National Security
Council aide told prosecutor Dan
Webb that he didn't "recall having
any emotion" when he received a
note from Poindexter after the
meeting that said: "Well done."
"When John Poindexter told you
'well done,' did you expect he had
been happy you had carried the
water?" Webb asked. "Did you think
you did well?"
"No, I've told the world I don't
feel good about that," the retired
Marine lieutenant colonel said, his
voice cracking with emotion.
Poindexter, a retired Navy rear
admiral who was President Reagan's
national security adviser-in 1986, is
,accused of obstructing congressional
inquiries into the U.S.-Iran arms
sales and the secret operation set up
to channel aid to the Nicaraguan

North insisted that his lies to

"You thought you could go in

lie and lie and lie?" Webb asked,
raising his voice for the first time
while questioanig North.
"I was not under oath, I have
never lied, it was an informal
meeting," North said.

him "you can handle it" when he
objected to going to the meeting.
But he balked at Webb's suggestign
that he was under orders to lie.
"I never thought it was a good
iUea to start the process of answering
their questions," North said.
"You're not going to change your
testimony that you gave this jury
two days ago to help your former
boss?" Webb asked.
"No sir," North said.
North said Poindexter was oneof
the few people who knew he lied,
"Did Ronald Reagan, George
Bush, the generals or the admirals,
did any of them send messages to
you that said 'well done' after you
lied to Congcess on Aug. 6, 19861"
"No,' North said.
