renechang commented on Remnick on hero journalism: Dial. Leave message. Hang up. Repeat four times an hour for 12 hours.People often wonder about the confessions and jail sentences of those accused of complicity with the Watergate affair. To these people I would refer them to the opionion loudly propagated about those who confessed when held in 'communist' countries. I would suggest that a version of the Stockholm Syndrome was at play here. Once a meme that there is wrond doing at the Nixon White House had taken root (brought about by ceaseless campaigning or over two years by the liberal press), and it takes some one with very strong will and rather foolhardy to question the premise of Watergate. So why did Nixon resign? It may be that he was trying to preserve the US constitution in which Freedon ofthe Press is fundamental. A self sacrifice. Bob Haldeman has never admitted to be gulity! He had sworn twice on his family bible to defend it. Read his "The Six Crisis." The entire Watergate saga has become so ingrained in the national psyche that it is almost impossible to reverse. Toi be able to understand what truely happened, one has to start with an open and enquiring mind. and answers to the following questions has to be furnished: 1. Why were the raiders arrested at their THIRD attempt? 2. Why did the dollar notes found on the arrested have consecutive serial numbers pointing to the White House? 3. Why wa Howard Hunt's details in the address books of TWO of the arrested Cubans? 4. Was Watergate a setup with such bizarre break-ins by professional ex-CIA operatives? 5. What did the juror on the grand jury tell Carl Bernstein? 6. Why are certain aspects of the arrests still kept as a secret from the US public? Read Watergate - The Political Assassination by a non Nixon supporter to see if there is ny merit in the possibility of an alternate interpretation.
