I tried copyediting this article, but it really needs help from someone who's familiar with this person. The current article is too focused on the events of the Iranian revolution of the 79s.Konczewski 19:40, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
While Ambassador Sullivan was in Laos, he was charged by presidential directive with running the "Secret War" within Laos. By so doing, he was functioning as the equivalent of a four-star general like Westmoreland because he was directing air and ground combat operations throughout Laos.
