Woodward and Bernstein took us on a walk down memory lane this past weekend with their 40 year retrospective on the idea that Richard Nixon was even worse than we thought, if that's possible.

Watergate. Has it really been 40 years? I was just a small-town teenager in the summer of 1972, but I remember being fascinated as the break-in and protracted cover-up unfolded. It was a drama like no other.

There's a kerfluffle bubbling in Washington. August feathers have been ruffled with publication of Yours in Truth by the authorized biographer of Benjamin C. Bradlee, former executive editor of the Washington Post. There's a price you pay when you "follow your nose" and tell the truth.

The Yale students believed the Internet would have told them the truth about Nixon; now the media are hoping it will tell them the truth about Instagram and Facebook. But an off-the-cuff opinion instantly posted on the Internet is a changeable and unreliable thing.

I was the editor in charge of the Watergate investigation for the Post; that was my assignment from the day of the break-in and for the following 15 months. I never knew Deep Throat's identity until it was released in 2005. But there are some things I know first-hand.

By not making significant cuts in our troops in Afghanistan or real changes in our strategy, the president's latest plan will leave us stuck in Afghanistan's quicksand for years to come.
