In a controversial new book on the Nixon resignation, Silent Coup: The Removal of a President, the authors said that White House aide John Dean was responsible for the cover-up of the 1973 Watergate break-in, that General Alexander Haig was attempting to unseat President Nixon, and that General Haig was also “Deep Throat.”

The authors say that their book has been rejected by some critics because it “cuts too close to the bone of what’s been accepted for 20 years.” Mr. Colodny is a former Maryland politician and Mr. Gettlin was a reporter for Newhouse Newspaper in Washington. close
