'Top Secret'

We, and the rest of the world, are being treated to a lot of high comedy these days in connection with the Iran- contra affair.

In the June 5 edition of The Times I read:

"It was so unusual for a private citizen to be involved in such high-level talks that Albert Hakim has been denied the right to read his own top-secret account of these proceedings because he has no government security clearance."

Even the Marx Brothers could not top that.
