Hey Johnny Holmes!

Well, not like this is news anymore, but Deep Throat finally coughed something up (one can only guess what it could have been) and found his voice for the first time in 33 years.

W. Mark Felt, former deputy directory of the FBI, has come out and admitted leaking information on the Watergate ordeal to the Washington Post.

Read that again. An assistant director of the FBI, entrusted by the government and the society at large to uphold the federal laws, as a head of a federal law enforcement agency, consciously made the decision to disregard all these laws and improperly and illegally leak selected information to the Washington Post.

Unfortunately, I cannot find online the laws relating to Felt's criminal activity. I am at the moment sitting at a noisy hotel's continental breakfast, and their wireless connection isn't all that fast or stable. If I can eventually find the appropriate statutes (or someone finds them for me) I will post them post haste.

Ultimately I am interested in the statute of limitations on such criminal activity. Frankly, I don't care that Felt is a semi-senile senior citizen. What he needs to do is, law permitting, spend the rest of his life in a correctional institute. OOOPS!! Breaking the law has consequences, unless of course you are an illegal alien. Laws obviously don't apply to them, but since Felt is actually an American citizen, he needs to be punished for his actions. Neither he nor his family should profit from his illegal, immoral, and borderline-treasonous activity.

Yeah, disclosing information about the President's illegal behavior is a terrible thing.

Considering the lengths Nixon and his subordinates went to keep the information secret (lying, paying people off, etc.), Felt's disclosure is certainly the lesser of the evils.

Ben Stein's articles on the matter are pure lunacy. Calling Nixon a peacemaker, who escalated the Vietnam War by bombing Cambodia and then lied to the American public about it, is so absurd it hurts to think about.

Nixon ended the Vietnam War (in disgrace, which was cool and all, so that all those American soldiers died for nothing).

Destroying the VC completely and winning military victory after military victory, then leaving, is svg beats. :cry:
