...Bush White House is 'Worse than Watergate' * Interview with John Dean, former counsel to President Richard Nixon, conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
Former Counsel to President Richard Nixon Declares that Misconduct in Bush White House is 'Worse than Watergate'
Interview with John Dean, former counsel to President Richard Nixon, conducted by Scott Harris
Over the past year, the Bush administration has struggled to regain its credibility with the public over issues such as Saddam Hussein's missing weapons of mass destruction, the now-debunked justification for the Iraq war; White House stonewalling of the Sept. 11 commission inquiry; and misrepresentations of Bush's environmental and fiscal policies. But during this election year, the president has also been forced to confront a succession of administration insiders who have gone public with their accounts of secrecy and deceit that they say are standard practices within the Bush White House.
Among these officials are former counter-terrorism chief Richard Clarke, former State Department Deputy Tom Maertens, resigned anti-terrorism advisor Rand Beers, former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, Greg Thielman, former aide to Secretary of State Colin Powell and former ambassador Joseph Wilson. Much like U.S. Defense Department analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the now famous "Pentagon Papers" about the Vietnam War to the press during the Nixon era, these Washington insiders have blown the whistle on what they see as government misconduct.
John Dean, a former counsel to President Nixon, whose Congressional testimony revealed to the nation the abuse of power and secrecy employed by his boss -- has written a new book confronting the current occupant of the White House, titled, "Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush." Between the Lines' Scott Harris spoke with John Dean about why he believes the scandals and secrecy surrounding President Bush are more dangerous than those that brought down Richard Nixon in 1974.
John Dean's book, "Worse Than Watergate, The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush," is published by Little, Brown & Co. Related links:
