” ‘Our tilt to Iraq was timely when Iraq was against the ropes and the Islamic revolution was on a roll,’ [CIA National Intelligence Officer for the Middle East Graham] Fuller wrote to CIA Director William Casey on May 17, 1985. ‘The time may now have come to tilt back.’ Fuller argued that the United States should once again authorize Israel to ship U.S. arms to Iran.”
