Political saboteur

E' morto Charles W. Colson, l'uomo dei "trucchi sporchi" di Richard Nixon, in poche parole la persona che ideò il Watergate e che - dopo essere stato incercerato per quello - si rifece una vita come predicatore evangelico sempre sulle posizioni della destra repubblicana. 

Mr. Colson was a 38-year-old Washington lawyer when he joined the Nixon White House as a special counsel in November 1969. He quickly caught the president’s eye. His “instinct for the political jugular and his ability to get things done made him a lightning rod for my own frustrations,” Nixon wrote in his memoir, “RN: The Memoirs of Richard Nixon.” In 1970, the president made him his “political point man” for “imaginative dirty tricks.” “When I complained to Colson, I felt confident that something would be done,” Nixon wrote. “I was rarely disappointed.”
