The article focuses on U.S. President Jimmy Carter's proposed arms sales to Iran. According to the author, Carter has proposed to sell an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) to Iran. The author argues that such a sale is contrary to Carter's announced policy to reduce the amount of U.S. weapons sales abroad. The author believes that the U.S. Congress should intervene to stop the sales of AWACS to Iran.
