From All the President's Men
] You let Haldeman slip away.
You've done worse than let Haldeman slip away: you've got people feeling sorry for him. I didn't think that was possible. In a conspiracy like this, you build from the outer edges and go step by step. If you shoot too high and miss, everybody feels more secure. You've put the investigation back months.
Yes, we know that. And if we're wrong, we're resigning. Were we wrong?
