I don't think Reagan did, personally. But I do think high treason was committed by members of his administration. The question remains: Did Reagan know it? Or did he delegate too much authority to too many?

He is ultimately responsible for the actions of his administration whether you believe he personally know or was involved. T

Discomfiting ... Absolutely! But the poll doesn't ask about the administration, or define specifics. Personally, I think the buck stops with the President. In investigations, things don't always evolve that way. I think Reagan probably, due to age, delegated too much. He may have even made a remark that got the idea rolling(as when Congress wouldn't back funding to rebels). But the Iran-Contra investigation, by a bi-partisan committee, found Reagan personally free of wrong-doing. The guilt was placed on others, within his administration. That might have been convenient, or factual. Who knows?
