John Wesley Dean III, Counsel to the President (Official White House Photo)

John Dean admits "Blind Ambition", his Autobiography contains false information.

This is extremely important because the false information contained in "Blind Ambition" directly contradicts his sworn testimony to the Senate Watergate Committee. So this means that John Dean either lied under oath or is lying to his readers in his autobiography.

*** Page two of the Dean section contains a lengthy interview with John Dean (01/05/1989), in which he contradicts himself on many key subjects, including his role in the famous Nixon "smoking gun tape". The interview was so damaging to Dean that he tried to kill it
by having me criminally prosecuted; he failed. ~ Len Colodny

Forty Years War Book

"The Forty Years War" Introduces Fritz G.A. Kraemer

The Forty Years War” introduces you to the most important foreign policy thinker you never heard of: Fritz G.A. Kraemer. Kraemer is the father of the "provocative weakness theory," more popularly called by Neocons as "peace through strength." Kraemer believed that power came from military strength and that any sign of weakening military resolve invited trouble from our rivals. President Ronald Reagan first adopted Kraemer's theory in 1981, and it has been a force ever since.

Who was the one source who believed that an effort might be under way to destroy evidence? Later, in "All the President's Men", the authors of the article revealed that it was Deep Throat. Sometime in the first week of November 1973, Woodward initiated a meeting with his source in the underground garage, and received startling information: "Deep Throat's message was short and simple: One or more of the tapes contained deliberate erasures."
