new “Nixon-Watergate” book released

May 19, 2008

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A new book on the scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon alleges that White House counsel John Dean ordered the infamous Watergate break-in in 1972, a charge Dean strongly rejected

.James Rosen, a Fox News Channel correspondent in Washington, made the charge based on interviews and an exhaustive review of documents for “The Strong Man: John Mitchell and the Secrets of Watergate.

The biography is being released this week about Nixon’s attorney general, a central Watergate figure.

Dean called Rosen’s assertion “pathetic.”

The Watergate scandal began with the bungled election-year break-in of Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in Washington on June 17, 1972. The aim was to wiretap the telephones.

Okay you baby boomers—some of us were kids when Nixon (Tricky Dick) was in office, I sure can remember my dad cussing that bastard out, especially about the Vietnam war. So go and read the article, I guess it’s time to revamp history again, it’ll never really end, most people don’t give a shit anymore anyway, so the book will just sit around in libraries—waiting for some poly-si student or somebody who is bored with other books—to come and read it.

Oh well, it never really ends, they (bad guys in general) always have to tell and retell (unto redundancy) all about their experiences, all about “what went on,” in an attempt to revamp or revise history.

I think we all know that Nixon ordered the damn wiretap, after all he did step down as president and promised: “You’ll not have Richard Nixon to kick around anymore…” hmpth!!!! 🙂
