New Questions Raised About Lake

Clinton administration officials knew more about covert Iranian arms shipments into Bosnia than previously believed, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

The newspaper said hundreds of pages of classified documents that it obtained recently raise questions about the roles of national security adviser Anthony Lake and Peter Galbraith, U.S. ambassador to Croatia in the 1994 arms flow.

Galbraith declined to comment about the report.

Interest in the issue was revived this month when President Clinton nominated Lake to be CIA director, requiring Senate confirmation.

According to the classified documents, Galbraith had details on how the arms flow would work even before Clinton agreed to allow it to proceed. But Galbraith hid his knowledge from U.N. investigators, the Times reported.
