    Oh oh!

    If that's true, then Stephen Ambrose's credentials as an historian is going to be irrevocably damaged.

    Pretty sure that already happened after his last controversy (was that before he died or after....can't remember). This one is just icing on the cake.

    I suspect Mr. Ambrose may be telling the truth, Nixon claimed one hour talking to Eisenhower was like hundreds of hours talking to an interesting human being.

    And Nixon would never lie.

    The guy plagurized parts of some books, and insulted and belittled many Vets in his books, his credibility was shot a long time ago.

    Can you source this? Doesn't sound like his style. Where Eisenhower is concerned, Nixon was too much the kiss ass to say anything like this.
