After dozens of operations during a nearly three-year retovery, Martinez became a motivational speaker and in 2008 won a role on the now-retir('d AB(' soap opt>ra "AH My Children." Details of Panetta's m(*eting with Mar-tint'z are being work(‘d out. Prosecutor: Reagan, H.W Bush not criminally liable in Iran-Contra affair WASHINGTON (AP) One of tbp prosecutors who investigated the Iran-(ontra affair conduded two decades ago that neither Ronald Reagan nor Georye M.W. Bush was criminally liable in the scandal that tarnished the pre'sidencies of both men, ac( ording to reports made [)ublic friday. Asso( iate independent (ounsel Christian Mixter r(>,i( hed con( lusion in 1991 ev('n though h(> found f’rt'sident Reagan was briefed in advance about every weapons shipment sold to Iran in the arms-for-hostages deals in T98S-86 In a sqwrate rejx)rt on Bush, Mixter wrote that the then-vi( e president W.vs chairman of a (ommitti'e re(ommend(‘d mining the fiarbors of NiCaragu»i in I‘»H i.

The' demonstrators rei(‘( ti'd the ap[)ointment of Kamal el-Cianzouri as prime minister, brc'aking into ( hants of "Illegitimate! Illc'gifimate!" and sc'tting up ti showdown Ix'tween the two sides only thrc'c' days hefc)re kc'y [ladiamen-fary elections. Ihe size ot the rally and the rc'silience ot protesters in the tac e of the violenc e usc'd by sc'curity forces in this week's deadly street battles have won Iku k for th(' movc'ment muc h ot the strc'ngth if projc'c t('cl during the IH-dav uprising that ousted President ftosni Mul)<irak in l eloruary. Shc)wing the sort ol resolve from the e.irliest days of the Arab Spring, the protesters say thc'y will not k'ave thc'iconic s(|uare until the military rulers Ic’d by Meld Marshal Hussein Tant.rwi step down and a c ivilian presidential (oun-cil is formed to run the country until a new Ic'adc'r is c'lec t('d.

"We shoutc'd 'erhal' (leave' but (lid not sliout the n.vmc* ot the* [)C*rson we want." Th(> military's appointment of el'C^anzouri, its a[)ology fc)r the dc'ath of prot('sfers and a seru's of partial (oncc'ssions in thc' past two davs suggest that the gc'nerals are struggling to ovc'rc omc' the most serious c lialh'ngc* to fhc'ir ninc'-month rule*, with ft‘w-er options now availalile to thc'm. Significantly adding to their predi( amc'nt, the Obama administration brought its position on the* (risis in Fgy[il t loser to the |)rot('sfers' dc'mands, urging llie military to tully empowcvr the next interim c ivilian government. "Wc' believe that Egypt's transition to dt‘n1o( rac y must ( ontinue, with c'lc*c-tions procec'cling expc'di-tiously, and all necc'ssary measure's taken tc) ensure sc'curity and [>rc'vent intimidation," the White House' said in a statement. "Most importantly, we bc'lic've' that the full transfer of povvc'r to a c ivilian gov-(‘rnmc'nt must take place in a |ust and inclusive manne'r that responds to the Ic'gifimate aspirations of the' Fgy[)ti,m p(H)ple, as soon as possible," it said.
