Anybody ever heard of a situation where EDS had two employees kidnapped in Iran in the 80's or 90's. The govt. wouldnt do anything so Ross Perot hired some guys to go in there and get them out?

lady up here is saying she worked with some guys that did the rescue mission, but ive never heard of this

Ken Follett (sp?) wrote a book about this. Good book, don't know the American title though (don't remember the French title either btw :lol: )

Is Bull Simons the retired SF guy that botched the rescue mission of POW's in Vietnam after the war ended. I think, but I may be wrong, he was high lighted in the book written by a Delta guy.
