good information and good sources but remember people didn't believe it. nixon beat george mcgovern after we had written most of these stories, nixon beat mcgovern, it was a landslide. i think i sense the president was a criminal and would order and carry out all of these illegal and abusive actions that seem impossible. story after story, we wrote hundreds of stories in the end. the watergate committee, the house impeachment inquiry, watergate prosecutor who really dug into this and eventually developed the documentation, testimony and secret tape recordings. >> host: bob woodward, who is still alive from the nixon white house, the house judiciary committee etc.? >> guest: good question. alexander butterfield is one of the few. >> host: john dean. >> guest: john dean, nixon's council who testified so dramatically in 73 for days about his feelings about nixon and ties and coverups. the main aids are gone. henry kissinger is still alive. he is a figure in this book. i think there is still work to be done on the vietnam war. why nixon continued that war when he had the opportunity whe

of the presidency of george w. bush, bush 43, started with al-qaeda spiking. so i think we already, you know, saw the dramatic change in the geopolitical arena. but, again, there was no yet strategy to understand how important is this change. still the way america and europe look at the map, it was like -- [inaudible] again. taliban, al-qaeda, afghanistan would go there. iraq is there. but in this interdependent world, it's like a big picture. you cannot do micromanagement because whatever you do with taliban in afghanistan, you eventually could can, you know, have effect and different effect, positive, often negative, in pakistan, maybe indonesia, the large muslim nation. the middle east. so every move on this giant geopolitical board has effect elsewhere. and again, bush 43, he didn't have any long-term strategic view of, you know, what is your plan. not an exit strategy. because i think the whole idea of conflict and exit strategy today is the fact that you can't exit from this planet. you know, you may criticize the invasion of -- [inaudible] but you should now look for 2015 an

totally. it's like george orwell. freedom is slavery war is peace. white is black. they created a mechanism never seen before that pairlee liesed -- paralyzed the mine minds of millions of russians and they say quite a while before country can go back to normal. >> host: your mother is still live nothing moscow? >> guest: yes. she has sisters nephews nieces. so it's a big family, and difficult to move outside of the country we were born. we all were born -- but it was part of the former soviet union when the soviet union collapsed we moved to moscow, which is the capital of the state we were born. we grew up in the russian -- within the russian culture russian education russian history, and seeing the demolition of the greatness of the country the heritage, social and cultural, scientific areas, it's very painful because russia has a lot of bad things that happened throughout history, but also it has huge positive influence over culture and today it has been almost thrown away, and we can just only hope that one day rather sooner than later our country will start building its futu

soviet union because we couldn't defeat them, too good, too strong. then back under the george bush administration, saddam hussein, you know, he had to go. he was a strong man, but when he was there, none of these problems existed because he crushed them. granted, yeah, he was brutal, but now that he's gone, there is a power vacuum there. it's created a multitude of problems, which we helped create. >> ambassador hill, do you want to pick up on that? your assessment of how much responsibility the u.s. has in the problems in iraq today. >> well, you know, if you live there, as i've lived there, and you see what saddam hussein did to that country and did to his people, you don't rue the day we got rid of hussein. he was a hideous character. at the same time you do have the impression that the u.s. didn't understand what we were dealing with that. we thought that somehow, if we got rid of saddam hussein, there was this sort of level of middle class and issues-based politics yearning to flourish in a democratic environment. in fact, when you get rid of governance, even bad governance, a
