Deep Throat And Genocide

By Ben Stein - 6/1/2005 - American Spectator


Re: The "news" that former FBI agent Mark Felt broke the law, broke his code of ethics, broke his oath and was the main source for Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward's articles that helped depose Richard Nixon, a few thoughts.

Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible? He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POW's, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel's life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?

Oh, now I remember. He lied.

Nixon did not lie under oath. He lied to protect subordinates who had done something stupid and criminal. Not to protect himself from being charged with rape and sexual harrasment. He lied out of a sense of loyalty to subordinates.

Even though it is clear he did not know about the breakin at Watergate before it happened, no democrat will believe that. I have been told repeatedly over the years that he knew, it just wasn't proven. A little thing like compelling evidence they are wrong has never stood in the way of any democrat believing that Nixon was more evil than anyone else who ever lived.

Democrats believe he was just as evil as Reagan who they are sure should have been impeached for Oliver North's crimes since like Nixon, "He had to have known". Why do they believe this? Because they wanted him to have known. That is their evidence.

Woodward and Bernstein have always implied that "deep throat" was disgusted with how evil Nixon was. How much chance is there that we now know he was annoyed with Nixon for personal and political reasons will ever see the light of day in the MSM?


The only "crime" Nixon committed was convicting a communist of treason. For democrats that is the unforgiveable sin. Ben Stein has a worse indictment of the Nixon haters than has ever been leveled at Nixon. They caused genocide. Their actions certainly put a coverup done out of loyalty into a different perspective.
