Trouble at top

Robert Dallek provides some insights into one of the stormiest relationships of recent years- that between Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon in this article, there isn't really enough to make substantive comments upon, though he does allege that Kissinger played an unconstitutionally vast role in the later period of Nixon's administration- but the extracts quoted are fascinating.

Isn't that what I've been saying all along? The cabal runs the show, not the figurehead. There are enough presidents'writings to indicate that this is indeed the case.

In Bush's case, it was interesting that one of the three, Rumsfeld, took the fall for the others.
