While an anxious public awaits the announcement of Fred D. Thompson?s decision to become a candidate for president in the 2008 election, the events that baptized him to Washington DC?s political furnace go much further back.
As minority council to the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities, or the Watergate Committee for short, Thompson was in one of the best positions to document the web of events that were the demise of President Richard Nixon.
In ?At That Point In Time,? Thompson makes no apologies for his early faith in Nixon?s innocence. In a subject where much of the published material is unrepentantly anti-Nixon, Thompson furnishes a properly balanced view of the Watergate investigation. As his investigation navigates the meandering leads and leaks that plagued the investigation, Thompson?s realization of impropriety at the highest levels becomes galvanized.
Thompson exposes the feeding frenzy of reporters whose careers were made or broken on the tidbits of information they could scrounge from or were fed by the cadre of investigators, politicians, suspects and witnesses.
?At That Point..,? is well written and despite the laundry list of characters that can be hard to follow without a chart, the ultimate story opens many more doors and windows than it closes.
It is inconceivable, in fact, perhaps frustrating that the investigation had to leave so many tangent issues unresolved in the interest of an ultimate timely conclusion.
Volumes more could be written on what Thompson reveals in his book about CIA, FBI, corporate and international ties to the Watergate scandal. Undoubtedly so many unanswered questions should provoke continued concerns about accountability, oversight and separation of powers.
In light of the recent exposure of Woodward and Bernstein?s ?Deep Throat,? Thompson could easily generate a second book of theories and further commentary on the subject.
An excellent and fascinating book on a topic that has been permitted to wane in its public interest, possibly just as pertinent today as it was over thirty years ago.
