Letter to the Editor

FBI agent Mark Felt, who today revealed he was “Deep Throat” did the right thing more than 30 years ago when he leaked information that brought down a corrupt president. Some people will say that what he did was unethical, but that depends on where your loyalties are. We are a nation of the People, by the People and for the People. The first duty of all government employees is to the people, and not to the government or its institutions. It is the duty of all officials to reveal corruption and to protect the integrity of America.

Would something like this happen today? Unfortunately not. Today we have a level of corruption that far exceeds anything that was going on when Nixon was president. Today people put the government ahead of the people. Even if they did leak corruption the corporate press would never print it. And under the “Patriot” Act what Nixon did would probably be legal. Nonetheless I want to thank Mark Felt for being loyal to the people of this great country.

good atleast it let me post that
i agree with mostly everything you have stated
you must win your case over springfield for the sake of all that remains ethical/moral in this corrupt theocracy bush has created.
as i can see that i have to wait a bit to post again i shall expand this comment to massive proportions
the theocratic monarchy founded by bush and his lackeys and other christian evangelicos over the last 25 years with the excemption of the clinton regime must be stopped by whatever means neccesary be that by internal reform or revolution it will be the choice of the people as to which path will be taken

now i may olny be 16 and i know that i have not used a single punctuation mark in this entire semessay but i am dedicated to my own beliefs on the failings of this nation its people and its leaders which seem to coincide remarkably well with your belifs this theocratic monarchy cannot be allowed to survive

Of course he did the right thing. To this day, the conspirators of July 20, 1944, who tried to kill Hitler, are celebrated as heroes in Germany. Naturally, in their case few ask themselves: Why so late?
