    Truth will out
    Nixon's visit to China 40 years ago was a great achievement.. An examination of what happened at Watergate is needed. The latest doubts about ‘All the President’s Men’ are not the only problems When that there was ‘wrong doing’ became the accepted truth; only the foolish dared to question Were a alternative explanation be made about what was on the tapes, then the jury is out although the ‘prisoner’ lynched. From his writings,, Nixon is an American patriot and would upset any vested interest group to defend US interest. In 1972, beating Senator McGovern by 18 (60.7%)million votes, he was the first president to have won all the southern states at a single election. Yet he had to resign two years later. To know what actually happened forty years ago, answers have to be provided to:Why were the culprits arrested at the THIRD attempt to break into Watergate? Why did the $100 dollar bills have consecutive serial numbers? Why were Howard Hunt’s details in the address books of TWO of the four arrested Cubans? There was a coup attempt in China to prevent the rapprochement. Could the same have happened in the US? What vital ‘information’ was passed by the grand jury member to the reporter? What has Richard Dawkin’s memes got to do with Watergate? Would Nixon order the Watergate raid when he was 26 points ahead of McGovern? Was Watergate a set-up or a cock-up?
