In the end, Nixon decided to give Judge Sirica the tapes, but afterwards more suspicions grew because he had released edited transcripts (Watergate). As Nixon proceeded, he did not realize that after he gave up the edited transcripts he put himself on the side of the guilty, because later Judge Sirica subpoenaed additional tapes (Watergate). The choices President Nixon made lead this issue to the U.S. Supreme Court, because suspicion grew that the evidence was deliberately destroyed (Watergate).

Conservatives believe that most people who are guilty use this as an escape route. They feel that inmates who have been incarcerated and are on death row are using this as a way to prolong the process. However the Liberals view Habeas Corpus as protection of individuals being held in violation of the constitution and laws of the United States. They feel the Writ of Habeas Corpus is solely to release innocent persons who are wrongfully imprisoned. The Constitution states that “The privileges of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended only when in cases of rebellion or invasion of the public safety may require it.” In October 17 2006, President Bush drew great criticism when he signed a law suspending the rights of the Writ of Habeas Corpus to those who the United States considered to be “enemy combatant” (a person in an armed conflict could be properly detained under the laws and customs of war.)

"I see the nose of the plane clearly entering the frame of one video and the tail of the plane entering the Pentagon in the other video." Many conspiracy Web sites have posted the video loops and report the films are inconclusive or were manipulated by the government. "Some folks will never be convinced," Fitton said. "But I'm hoping that these videos will dissuade reasonable people from falling into a trap with these conspiracy theories." University of Florida law professor Mark Fenster, author of the book "Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture," said the poll's findings reflect public anger at the unpopular Iraq war, realization that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction and growing doubts of the veracity of the Bush administration.
The R.T.C ( Resolution Trust Corporation) began to investigate the whitewater case and found that once again Mcdougal was found using large amounts of money he should not have and the Clintons were caught in the crossfire. A report down by the R.T.C, the Pillsbury report, provided evidence that suggested the Clintons knew nothing about the Mcdougal's misdoings and that they were simply innocent bystanders. Regardless of the report, the media still bombarded the Clinton’s with questions about the case until the attorney general at the time appointed an investigator, Robert Fiske, to get to the bottom of the whole scandal. Robert Fiske later on was replaced by Kenneth Starr, another investigator, who found incriminating evidence of sexual misconduct down by president Clinton. The infamous “Starr report” soon came out which accused president Clinton of having an affair with another colleague of his in the White house.
More should have been done between the President, CIA, FBI and other appropriate anti-terrorism officials regarding this group and/or its leader.

(Lichtblau, 2005) This gave space for another attack from Al-Qaeda. On October 12, 2000 the USS Cole was attacked by suicide terrorist of Al Qaeda killing American sailors and injuring others.
Historical Research: U.S. involvement in Nicaragua vs. Iraq Anthony Spieker English 3 Ms. Eisenhower April 24, 2011 Throughout history the United States has repeatedly invaded other countries to maintain self “stability” in our nation.

The U.S intervened in Iraq in 2003 to ensure American interests remained strong there so that we could continue to receive their natural resources at a reasonable price. When Nicaragua was under the rule of Adolfo Diaz, banks in USA began lending to Nicaragua under an agreement that gave them substantial control over
John Dean testified that the president was aware of the operation and had authorized the payment to the assailants to keep them in silence, something that was vehemently denied by the Nixon Administration. Thereafter, scandals followed with an unusual speed and virtually, everyday signs of new illegal acts by the Nixon team appeared. Finally, and to avoid almost certain impeachment, Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974. A month later, his successor, Gerald Ford, exonerated him of all crimes he might have committed during his mandate, getting him safe from any
