Documents on the Nicaraguan Resistance: Leaders, Military Personnel, and Program

This State Department report is dated March 1986. During that month, debate raged in Congress over President Ronald Reagan's request for $100 million in assistance for the Nicaraguan rebels known as the contras. This report was intended to address claims that the largest rebel faction, the Nicaraguan Democratic Force (FDN), was controlled by former members of the Guardia Nacional. It includes a roster of FDN commanders, their backgrounds, and units (Document 6).

Gaps in the transcribed text are denoted by triple slashes (///). Document 5 not included at this time. Formatting (particularly tables and charts) may not be perfectly reproduced from the original. Also, source text used a three-column layout. All sections need to be proofread.

This Special Report contains a collection of basic documents and data pertaining to the character of the Nicaraguan democratic resistance. The purpose of this Report is to partially answer the question: "who" is the democratic resistance?

These documents provide an insight into the debate about the relationship between civilian and military leaders within the resistance, about the organizational nature of resistance military forces (especially those of the FDN), and about the political programs of those struggling for freedom against the Soviet-equipped and Cuban-advised Sandinista dictatorship.
