Never-before-heard tapes of Reagan revealed
New York Post
Eighteen years after William Doyle filed a FOIA request, the Ronald Reagan presidential library began releasing tapes of phone conversations the then-President had held with other world leaders during the 1980s: discussing hostage negotiations, the Grenada invasion, and an Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon. The conversations were originally recorded at the Situation Room of the White House.
The article describes the wait for the tape recordings: "Doyle received them last week following a Freedom of Information Act request he made in 1996."
