Mr. Jordan's version: keep it factual

Should a former chief of staff of a president of the United States use his version of a major international event for a "docudrama" on TV? Hamilton Jordan is reported to have made a deal for such a venture (a multimillion-dollar, six-hour production on the Iranian hostage crisis) along with former White House media adviser Gerald Rafshoon. A docudrama theoretically is accurate in essence but dramatized in detail. The risks to truth have been substantial in previous examples. Would the Jordan-Rafshoon entry be immune?

The doubt is sufficient to dictate that Mr. Jordan's inside story, extremely important to history, be told as straight as possible -- not in the form of docudrama but as a strictly factual, undramatized chronicling of events. The former hostages an d everyone else involved deserve no less.
