The truth can't be a Hellfire missile until it becomes a best-selling non-fiction book upon which an Academy Award-winning film is produced. Until then, almost nobody will have heard about this or been affected by it. It's more like a Bic lighter than a Hellfire missile.
And don't forget 'The Washington Post' - Woodward & Bernstein's Employer and paper the broke the Watergate Story. Of which, lo these many years; much still remains; a 'story'.
And neither; post that endeavor and Pulitzer Prize received for their efforts; did much of anything to shine a light of truth in their political home town.
It's now certain that the second break-in was a set up. The DC police detective who arrested the Cubans at the scene later admitted that he had been tipped off about it two weeks in advance.
Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee took two "reporters" to use as the lead men on a 3rd rate story and blow it all out of proportion with innuendo and supposition, but most importantly with untraceable and unverifiable "secret source" fabrication.
If it all blew up in the face of The Post, the only ones in jeopardy were the, heretofore, two, obscure, unknown, office lackeys/reporters known as Woodward and Bernstein. Who served as stenographers for the story and found fame and fortune as they went undiscovered, unchallenged, and unchecked in their and The Post's deceit.
Then in 1980, as assistant managing editor of The Post, Bob Woodward, a truly fast learner, borrowed a page from Ben Bradlee's playbook and submitted a story for another Pulitzer Prize written by another obscure office lackey/Affirmative Action hired reporter named Janet Cooke. Who, incidentally lied about her journalistic and educational background on her job application to the Post. What better stooge for Woodward to have than one so easily discredited in the event of the story blowing up in the face of the venerable Post!
And, unlike the Watergate adventure into journalistic mendacity where the "evil" Richard Nixon was portrayed as a paranoid president whom nobody liked was the target, "Jimmy's World" did indeed turn out to be a figment of the fevered imaginations of The Post newsroom and Janet did tumble for the deceit. Who would possibly believe her over the great reporter who destroyed Nixon? And whom Ben Bradlee kept around as an insurance policy and buffer between himself and discovery of the Watergate fairy tale.
JMHO as one who lived through it all from the "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore," to Dita Beard and the ITT, Republican convention front page news, non-scandal, to the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, John Mitchell, Martha Mitchell, etc., etc., etc. and finally realized: Who after living through all of that would NOT have an enemies list? Paranoid??!!?? Hell's Belles they WERE out to destroy him.
Who, or what, is this guy? A former junior Naval Intelligence operative (ONI) with some kind of access to every intel guy with an axe to grind? Every disappointed office seeker? Deep, deep roots to somewhere; to something no one can quite figure out.
To top it off, in his books, one of the gudamdist liars ever to come down the Pike to Hell. Bernstein had an excuse. He is just plain stupid as only an uneducated Leftist can be. Woodward? That's the story.
No doubt Dean again - slipperiest Bast__d ever to occupy a position of trust. Well, maybe up til the Clintons.
But I digress. Nixon was a fine guy and one of our best Presidents - the Left successfully overthrew him with the help of the "Silent Majority" who just sort of let things happen.
I love how only Woodward can get those rare deathbed interviews. They are just precious.
I think he was deep cover KGB.
So, IMNSVHO, was Dick Holbrooke ... and they were very close pals.
“According to my sources at the time - a senior FBI officer on the morning after the discovery of the second break in - it was an FBI op coordinated by John Dean. Nixon didn’t know anything about it.”
