Nixon library releases new set of recordings (USA)

The Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in California has released a new set of recordings that include memos that reveal President Richard Nixon was obsessed with his enemies long before Watergate. In one memo released Thursday that Nixon dictated to chief of staff Bob Haldeman in early 1970, the president says, "The more I think of it, setting up a special group for the purpose not of cheering but solely of attacking and defending is of the highest priority." In another memo Nixon complains about the new White House press room, saying "we have gone overboard in terms of the elaborate individual cubicles and other areas that have been set up." The library also released more than 500,000 pages of presidential records and several online exhibits - STLtoday.com
