Boston University presidential historian Robert Dallek talks about his new book, which include the fact that Nixon was drunk and sedated during the Yom Kippur war. And that's because that administration actually recorded their secrets.
And if that's not enough for you, watch University of Texas poli prof Robert Pallitto talk about the Bush administration (& Cheney super fourth branch) approach to secrecy and "democracy."
