APPENDIX: The Official Theory of the Watergate Plane Crash Preface to the Berkley Edition The appearance of this new edition of The Yankee and Cowboy War confronts me with the temptation to update the book across the board. Since publication, Carter has become president, the JFK and King assassination cases have been reopened by the Congress, there has been more heavy commotion within the Hughes empire, and accounts published by such Watergate heroes as John Dean (Blind Ambition, 1976) and Fred Thompson (At That Point in Time, 1976) have further strengthened the view that there is some important, still-concealed connection between Watergate and the CIA. These matters tie directly to the themes explored in this book. But since a general update would still be premature, I decided to restrict my textual changes to a few corrections of fact and adjustments of style, except for the insertion of one new passage, a Yankee-Cowboy analysis of the coming of President Carter, at the end of chapter 8. This addition allows me to bring to a fuller close my argument that Watergate, like Dallas, was a coup d'etat, culminating in the installation of a new president and a new executive elite. C.O. March 1977
