Synopsis

This is an account of a political mystery never intended to be solved, a tale of bold deception by a few powerful men who apparently calculated that political manipulation, if conducted on a sufficiently grand scale, was essentially invisible and ultimately beyond the law of the United States. "October Surprise" aims to unmask the conspiracy between Ronald Reagan's 1980 election campaign led by campaign manager William Casey and the Iranian Islamic revolutionary authorities. Together they conspired to prolong the imprisonment of the 52 US hostages in Iran in order to rob Jimmy Carter of any possibility of winning the 1980 US presidential election. Gary Sick, initially sceptical about continuing reports of this potentially treasonable intrigue, has spent the last four years researching it and has uncovered what he claims to be the truth. Apart from the disgrace to American ideals of democracy and open government, this tale of the election of a US president through treasonable contacts with America's adversaries threatens to become the most dramatic political scandal of modern times.

The US Congress has now undertaken Congressional and Senate hearings to uncover the truth behind Gary Sick's allegations.
