Woodward Likens Benghazi to Watergate

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward compared the Benghazi talking-points controversy to the scandal that made him a historic figure. “I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts of the conversations,” he said on Morning Joe today.

“If you read through all these e-mails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, ‘Oh, let’s not tell the people terrorists were involved, people connected to al-Qaeda; let’s not tell the public that there were warnings,’” Woodward added. “You look at the hydraulic pressure that was in the system to not tell the truth.”

Woodward told the panel that he “would not dismiss Benghazi,” calling it “a very serious issue.”
