John Sheardown, Canadian diplomat who sheltered Americans during Iran hostage crisis, dies - The Washington Post
That was not my impression.
I learned of the Canadian's involvement from that movie and then read more on my own.
RIP John Sheardown and thank you, and the many others, for your courage and assistance.
