A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

Watergate's John Dean Says Identity of "Deep Throat" To Be Revealed Sooner Than Later Posted by Hello
Heard this news today. John Dean, former White House counsel under Nixon, is saying that "Deep Throat" (the legendary Watergate-insider dime-dropper who provided the inside intelligence to Bob Woodward/Carl Bernstein that was utilized to bring down the Nixon White House) is ailing so badly that his identity might soon be revealed (Woodward promised that he would not reveal his identity until "Deep Throat's" demise). The link is below:

For what it's worth, I'm going to give my three predictions on the identity of "Deep Throat". Now, my three predictions aren't the "usual suspects" that we usually hear bandied about, i.e., Pat Buchanan, George H. W. Bush, L. Patrick Gray, etc. (save one of my predictions, which IS among the many names considered one of the "usual suspects"). So, without further delay here they are:

I. President Gerald Ford- need I say more. He had motive and opportunity and (more than likely) all the gouge concerning Watergate. If he is, in fact, "Deep Throat" then Ford will have received one of the biggest payoffs for "dropping a dime" in all of modern history. He became the 38th President of the United States upon Nixon's resignation.

II. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist- shortly before the Watergate fiasco, Rehnquist was working under then Attorney General John Mitchell. In this capacity, Rehnquist would not only have been privy to the inner-workings of the "Nixon-ian" Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP)/Donald Segretti/sabotage the Democrats "at-all-costs" shenanigans that led up to the Watergate operation (because Mitchell himself was in on all of these things), he would have also been privy to information concerning the attempted assassination of 1972 Democratic/American Independent Party Presidential candidate George Wallace. This point is critical because in the movie "All the Presidents Men", Woodward (Robert Redford's character), while talking on the payphone to "Deep Throat", reveals that at an earlier time "Deep Throat" had helped provide him with information about the assassination attempt on Wallace. Also, (like the "Deep Throat" character has been described as being) he's a smoker.

III. Gen. Alexander Haig- now this individual IS one of the "usual suspects" in that his name is always presented as a possibility. Gen. Haig was a member of Nixon's inner circle from the beginning (or near the beginning) of the Nixon Presidency until its end. Gen. Haig, like Ford, would have had nearly immediate access to most (if not all) of the information concerning the inner-workings of the Watergate affair.

Well, those are my three picks. For the record, based on all of the available evidence, my actual pick out of the three is Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. William H. Rehnquist IS "Deep Throat". Take it easy. Semper Fidelis
