Nation IN BRIEF : NEW YORK : North’s Mailings ‘Upset’ Schwarzkopf

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Operation Desert Storm commander H. Norman Schwarzkopf was “upset and angry” over Oliver L. North’s unauthorized use of the general’s name in a fund-raising letter, a Schwarzkopf spokesman said. Freedom Alliance, a nonprofit foundation operated by North, has been mailing out fund-raising requests accompanied by a color photo of Schwarzkopf, according to the general’s agent, Marvin Josephson. The mailings ask for donations to assist families of soldiers wounded in Operation Desert Storm. North, the ex-national security aide who played a key role in the Iran-Contra case, promised Josephson the mailings would stop, the New York-based agent said.
