CLICK here to see Rachel Maddow's "breaking news" discussion this past Friday, August 26, concerning the Nixon administration's rationale for raising the Nuclear War Alert Level. The once secret information is only now available due to recent "declassification".
Nixon later bragged that it was his "friendship" with Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev that "saved" the world from Nuclear War in 1973.
Neglecting, of course, to mention that it was his actions that brought us to the brink of Nuclear Annihilation by alerting all US Nuclear Forces to go to DEFCON 3- all based upon faulty intelligence! Sound familiar!
ABOLITION IN OUR TIME
