Comments: More Boring Old History

Mr Schwarz, this PDF was written bet April 69 and March 1970.

"Memo on Israeli Nuclear Capability and Non-Proliferation Treaty"
Folder Subject Files - Non-Proliferation Treaty April 1969-March 1970 [2 of 2] Box 366; National Security Council Files; Richard Nixon Presidential Library. 2) . Israel: Tsrael has not signed the NPT) even thoLlgh all ArfLb coL1Gtries E;xcept 1:lgeri_a and Saudi Arabia have no~v signed. Officially the GOI

http://www.nixonlibrary.gov/virtuallibrary/documents/dec08.php (then search Israel and NPT )

However, the following document is even more interesting, a memo to the President from Kissinger!

There are more documents and they only confirm what we Americans have always known but kept secret by the govt.

my favorite item from the released info was nixon's reaction to roe v. wade. Nixon's first reaction was that abortion makes perfect sense in the case of the offspring of interractial couples.

Ehrlichman (I think): "Or rape."

Nixon: "Rape too, of course, sbsolutely. Rape definitely. I said rape. You must not have been listening." [paraphrase]

as for your numbered point two, most of the u.s. government doesn't know even a tiny fraction of what some of the u.s. government knows, even stuff you would think some people in very responsible positions should know. For example, a person would think the President and Secretary of State/National Security Adviser would have told at lesat some high-ranking people what they have already decided about important issues, like nuclear proliferation in enormously conflicted regions, but then most people maybe wouldn't think the Joint Chiefs would spy on the President, which was reported in some detail by that "conspiracy crazy" periodical Time Magazine on March 4, 1974. (The Moorer-Radford affair.)

There sure was a lot of strange and fishy business going on in the "dark corridors of power" in the midst of the opening of detente, just as former Naval Intelligence Officer Bob Woodward started his journalistic career with such a whopping big bang at the Post, after serving for just a few months in training at the distinguished Montgomery Gazette. That Bob Woodward, he sure was a natural talent!

anyway, enough of that boring old history, i couldn't tell if there was anything juicier from nixon on "the jews" in this latest released batch. "domestic opposition" isn't very catchy language from such a master of sensitivity. i'm kind of surprised the "domestic opposition" didn't also come up in the abortion discussion.

No fair, i protest.

I always like "Not Exactly's" comments, double or not.

What does a fetus call its mother, intent on abortion?

Domestic opposition.
