Nixon’s enemies indulged in a retrospective moralization of Watergate, obfuscating the reality of the matter, says Christopher Caldwell. “There is not really any such thing as ‘investigative journalism.’ … It does not begin with a journalist hunting down a source.

“If alive today, Kennan would note the danger of cornering the Russians to the point where they might lash out.
