New JFK book proves Dick Cheney, not Mark Felt, was Bob Woodward's Deep Throat... And...

Product Description:

In 1974, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein published All the President's Men, the real-life whodunit that introduced Deep Throat to the American people.

A young presidential aide turned confidential informant, Deep Throat had provided the young Washington Post reporters with enough insider information about the Watergate break-in to force President Richard Nixon from the Oval Office. As a condition of receiving the information, they promised not to reveal Deep Throat's identity until after his death.

In the summer of 1999, Bob Woodward dropped in on a retired FBI official named Mark Felt at his home in Santa Rosa, California. During that visit, Woodward convinced Felt to publicly assume the role of Deep Throat

By any cursory examination of the facts, Mark Felt was not Deep Throat. Felt, in fact, had never been a presidential aide of any kind and was fifty-eight years young at the time of the break-in. Bob Woodward, however, had become desperate to close the books on Watergate.

The real Deep Throat, you see, had recently decided to run for high office. A few loose ends had to be tied down before the 2000 presidential election, so Bob made the extraordinary trip to Santa Rosa to cut a deal.

Against Them not only explains why Woodward tried to close the books on Watergate in the summer of 1999, but it explains how and why Alexander Haig, Bob Woodward, Donald Rumsfeld, and Richard Cheney used their bogus Deep Throat story to cover up the John F. Kennedy assassination in the wake of the Watergate break-in.

This is the book Americans have been waiting for since November 22, 1963.
