Watergate

Thirty eight years ago today, on the evening of June 17th 1972, a security guard named Frank Wills called the police to report a break-in in the Watergate apartment complex where he worked. Five men: Virgilio González, Bernard Barker, James W. McCord, Jr., Eugenio Martínez, and Frank Sturgis were arrested On August 9th 1974 president Richard M. Nixon would resign as a direct result of Mr. Wills' call.

I have spoken with many people who belove this was an unimportant piece of American history. I have been told that “The only thing they did wrong was to get caught”. George Gordon Liddy who was convicted as part of the Watergate scandal hosts a moderately popular radio program.

What kind of state do these revisionist historians want America to have?
