Alexander Haig and the coup against Nixon
Fascinating untold history of Alexander Haig
“A character of supreme intrigue”
The military had spies in the White House during the Nixon administration.
Alexander Haig, a general, ran the country for all practical purposes while Nixon melted down.
Other little known facts:
1. Haig controlled the White House safe that held the notorious Watergate tapes which brought Nixon down
2. Bob Woodward, the famous Washington Post journalist who broke the Watergate story, was a Yale grad, a Navy officer, a likely NSA officer, and a briefer to Alexander Haig when he was in the military.
Small world isn’t it.

It’s a distinct possibility that the US military wanted to get rid of Nixon and went ahead and did it.
