You recruited G. Gordon Liddy to run President Nixon’s dirty-tricks campaign and were intimately involved in the cover-up. Why should a reader pay for your judgment on Watergate?
These tapes do refresh recollection of things I had totally forgotten about … Anybody who wants to take the time to listen to the tapes will get a confirmation of exactly what I’ve said. I have no reason at this late date to try to distort anything, other than to really understand what did happen and why.
Your book reminds us that the major players in Watergate were either incompetent sociopaths or malevolent egomaniacs.
