Comment: I always thought it was at least partly Nixon's doing

I always thought it was at least partly Nixon's doing

for several reasons. My damn keyboard is acting up so I will spare all the details...my main point now is that Nixon's aid Bob Haldemann wrote in his book The Ends of Power that Nixon was constantly going back and forth with threats to the CIA about exposing 'that Bay of Pigs thing." Haldemann later realized that Nixon was alluding to the JFK assassination each time.

It seems plausible to me that that CIA had Hunt deliberately screw up at Watergate because they were sick of being threatened by Nixon.
