Had a poor opinion of Holland's previous book - - ditto this one! The problem with Felt as Deep Throat is that information came from within Nixon's Oval Office [which was swept for planted bugs daily, once by the Secret Service and again by a private firm]. Originally, I thought DT must be either Kissinger [but he was out of some of the meetings leaked as well] or Bob Woodward, who was a Navy officer, with NCIS, before WaPo and frequently was involved with background checks on members of the White House Communications Group. Now I believe it was the CIA all along, as at their initiation the NSA, in the early 1970s, refined the Infinity Transmitter [originally created in the 1960s by a Mr. Mittelman, in the form of a planted telephone bug] so that no on-site bug was necessary, all the tapping utilizing one's telephone was done off-site, et cetera. [Calling in without the ringer sounding, then amplifying the audio from the telephone's carbon transmitter.]
(1) All the Watergate crew were former or career CIA types;
(2) That fellow President Obama caused to be released from Cuba, Mr. Gross, who brought communications equipment for a spy network, whom the news claimed was with USAID, was a contractor to them with Development Alternatives, Inc. [DAI], which President Obama's mother once worked for, a known CIA front organization, or have done work for the CIA at various times; and,
(3) The parking lot which Mark Felt was supposed to have met with Woodward, was used daily by a highly-positioned lady, also with DAI. Suspect it was CIA all the way!
(4) Nixon, shortly prior to Watergate break-in, was demanding files from the CIA on the Kennedy assassination, along with irking Wall Street with his directives on tariffs.
