Walterville, Oregon (PRWEB) April 19, 2016
With publication, by TrineDay in June 2016 of the 25th anniversary edition of Silent Coup: The Removal of a President, authored by Len Colodny, comes the release of "secretly" taped interviews that show the ties of legendary reporter Bob Woodward to two of the most powerful members of the Nixon administration.
As a young Navy lieutenant in 1969 and 1970, Woodward manned the Pentagon's secret communications room, which transmitted messages around the world, including the backchannel communications for Henry Kissinger and President Richard Nixon. That job required Woodward to deliver messages from top world leaders to Gen. Alexander Haig, Kissinger's deputy at the National Security Council.
In "secretly" taped interviews for Silent Coup, Admiral Thomas Moorer, Woodward's former boss and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and then-Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird confirmed that one of Woodward's assignments was to brief Haig.

These tapes and other new information gathered over the last 25 years show that Woodward was more of a player in events than the young reporter played by Robert Redford in All the President's Men. This new information should inspire a review of the version of Watergate as presented by Woodward, Carl Bernstein and the Washington Post.
"Woodward's failure to disclose this information discredits much of what Woodward wrote in the Post as well as in his two books about Watergate -- All the President's Men and The Final Days. Woodward carried out many acts to benefit Haig as Haig pushed to force Nixon from office," declares author Len Colodny.
This scandal within a scandal -- "Woodwardgate" -- is detailed by the tapes and evidence included in The Colodny Collection at Texas A&M University. Link: http://www.watergate.com
