"They have used 9/11 ever since for its political purposes. And they have used it to enhance the secrecy of this presidency." – John W. Dean

Before becoming Counsel to the President of the United States in July of 1970 at the age of 31, John W. Dean was Chief Minority Counsel to the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives, the Associate Director of a law reform commission, and Associate Deputy Attorney General of the United States. He served as President Nixon's White House lawyer for 1,000 days.

Dean is perhaps best known for warning President Nixon that the Watergate scandal was "a cancer within the presidency" — and in the many years since, has written extensively about the threats to our Constitution and civil rights.

John W. Dean discusses his newest book, Worse than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush.
