Releasing Nixon's Grand Jury Testimony

On September 17, 2010, the former White House Counsel for President Nixon during the Watergate Scandal, John W. Dean, wrote an op-ed calling for the release of Nixon’s grand jury testimony, arguing that the testimony could change history. Presumably, in that testimony, Nixon explained that the Watergate Scandal was nothing more than political theater. If so, that testimony certainly would change history.

Earlier in the week, Public Citizen sued the government in an attempt to get that information released, but so far, nothing has come of it. Instead of telling the truth, once again, our government decided to threaten to tell the truth.

Another year has passed – a year that saw several more civil wars erupt in the Middle East, countless people die, and more political theater.

Trash till the end.
