History repeats

Digby has a big juicy preview of Rick Perlstein's forthcoming book Nixonland which recounts how Nixon exploited the court martial of Lt. William Calley, villain of the My Lai massacre. It's fascinating, because of how the Bush administration, war hawks, and Abu Ghraib so closely echo Nixon, war hawks, and My Lai a generation ago.
