On this day in 1974: Watergate Seven indicted. Nearly 40 years has transpired and yet it would seem that history, with a slight twist is coming full circle. I’m also reminded of the quote often attributed to Winston Churchill, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”
We learned back in the mid 70′s and those who were responsible were held accountable and brought to justice. In the 70′s the media did it’s job, following the five W’s and H, to bring the story to the American people.
Move ahead to current day and recent history and we now find a lazy, lapdog media failing their responsibilities in their narrative of President Obama and his administration.
Where is the media outcry on Fast & Furious and the contempt of Congress citation against Attorney General Holder? Where also is the media outcry about the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, and the deaths of four American’s?
The American people continue to look for answers.
On this day in 1974: Watergate Seven indicted
Richard Milhous Obama
With Watergate back in the news–courtesy of White House economic czar’s Gene Sperling’s threat on Bob Woodward–I thought it would be a good idea to pass on to my readers that on this day in 1974, the Watergate Seven: John Ehrlichman, H.R. Haldeman, John Mitchell, Charles Colson, and three others were indicted by a federal grand jury. President Richard M. Nixon faced the ignominy–not his last–of being named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the court papers.
