More sham, in care of the CIA's Mockingbird Program, begun in the early 1950s, employing various types - - usually former intel types soon to be placed in the so-called media [Woodward from NCIS, that former special assistant to Allen Dulles, Tom Braden, who had radio talk show with Pat Buchanan in the 1980s, and claimed to be a // liberal \\ yeah, ROTFL to the max, and the O'Leary boys, et cetera] - - always used // unnamed sources \\ how utterly convenient!
Felt was supposed to be Woodward's Deep Throat - - mystery solved?! Except, how did Felt come by those private talks between Kissinger and Nixon - - very mysterious, that?
But Kissinger had known Felt for many years, dating back to his Harvard days, when Kissinger would call his contact at the FBI [who just happened to be Mark Felt] and claim that other academics he was competing with for tenure at Harvard were actually no-good commies.
Will coincidences never cease? And speaking of unnamed sources, that building and it's underground garage where Woodward was supposed to have met Felt all those times, I once read a story of someone the Washington Post claimed worked at the World Bank and lived in that building, so as the Jesuits who raised me at a Catholic orphanage kept pounding into me, always ask the next question: I looked into her background and found she was actually a contractor working at the World Bank through Development Alternatives, Inc. Same firm which President Obama's mother had worked at; same firm that Mr. Gross, who attempted to set up a spy network in Cuba, whom President Obama sprung from a Cuban jail when he opened relations with Cuba, also worked at. Turns out almost everyone in that building Woodward met his deep throat at also worked at Development Alternatives, Inc., a CIA-front company. Will wonders - - or is that coincidences - - never cease?????

Interesting because of its insights into Watergate, but not as compelling as Woodward's investigative reporting, where he's illuminating more recent events.
