The Iran-contra committees in their final report have criticized the administration for failing to take action against individuals who violated security regulations, and called for "uniform enforcement" in the future, according to congressional sources.

Although they are not mentioned by name, the specific targets of the language are Lt. Col. Oliver L. North and Rear Adm. John M. Poindexter, who still have security clearances giving them access to classified materials in their current jobs despite admissions during the Iran-contra hearings that they violated rules governing the handling of such documents, according to Pentagon sources.

North testified to the Iran-contra congressional investigating committees that he shredded materials related to the Iran arms sales and secret aid to the contras in October and November 1986. Some materials were destroyed after Nov. 21, 1986, the day he had been told that Attorney General Edwin Meese III was to make an inquiry into the arms shipments to Iran, particularly those in 1985.

North also said he took some classified materials from his White House office to his home the day he was fired. The top-secret documents were later returned to the White House.

Poindexter told the committees that while he was President Reagan's national security adviser, he had ripped up a highly sensitive 1985 presidential intelligence authorization related to the November 1985 Israeli arms shipment to Iran. The document was relevant to Meese's inquiry and was destroyed without telling either Meese or the president it existed.

Poindexter also told the committees that at the same time he also destroyed other unidentified documents that had been kept by his aide and legal counsel in a safe for top-secret material.

Despite these admissions, neither the Defense Department nor the Navy Department has taken steps to review either officer's security clearances under procedures established for dealing with alleged security violations, these sources said.

"The Navy says {North's and Poindexter's} jobs require a security clearance and they see no compelling reason to revoke their clearances," a spokesman for the Office of the Secretary of Defense said.

North is working on plans and policies for the Office of the Marine Commandant, and Poindexter has been working on projects for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations while awaiting retirement.

"The Navy is not doing anything on it and they have not been asked to do anything," the Pentagon spokesman said.

"Destruction of classified information is not considered a {Uniform Code of Military Justice} matter," he said.

Fawn Hall, North's former secretary, was transferred from the White House to a Navy Department job where she does not have access to classified material, a Pentagon official said. Her security clearance "is under review," he added.

Hall testified that she assisted North in destroying classified White House documents, and on Nov. 25, 1986, the day of North's firing, smuggled some secret papers out of the Executive Office Building in order to give them to him.

North's former deputy, Lt. Col. Robert L. Earl, is also currently working for the Marine commandant and handling classified materials. Earl testified that he assisted in destroying some materials and was aware that Hall had removed secret documents from the White House in violation of regulations.

Normally, the destruction of papers with top-secret classification requires witnesses and certificates of destruction, a Pentagon official said.

One reason for the Iran-contra committees' report language is the anger that some members and staff attorneys feel over the administration's refusal to take any adverse action against participants in the Iran-contra affair, one congressional source said.

Without mentioning names, the committee's final report complains that "clearances have not been yanked despite breaches of security," a source said.

During the drafting of the final report of the Iran-contra committees, House panel staff members pushed for a recommendation calling for "uniform enforcement of security regulations" as a way of calling attention to the administration's failure, to date, to take any action against North or Poindexter.

The White House and the Pentagon are not the only footdraggers.

CIA Director William H. Webster has refused to move against any of the agency personnel involved in the affair until he reads the report of the Iran-contra panels. Meanwhile, his special counsel, Washington lawyer Russell Broemmer, is reviewing the committee's hearings and other material to assist Webster in making his decision.

Independent counsel Lawrence E. Walsh has a team of investigators studying the agency activities and the possibility that one or more of the CIA participants in the affair violated federal laws.

Webster has been told privately that the congressional report will not single out any CIA personnel by name nor recommend any dismissals, according to congressional sources. However, Sen. David L. Boren (D-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has told Webster that some steps would have to be taken by December to punish those involved in Iran-contra excesses.
