Quote: "From Watergate we learned what generations before us have known. Our Constitution works. And during (the) Watergate years, it was interpreted again...so as to reaffirm that no one---absolutely no one---is above the law", unquote, American public servant Leon Jaworsky, (September 19, 1905-December 9, 1982).

Bob Woodward stood at the Watergate burglars. He saw Virgilio R. Gonzalez. He stood, and watched the proceedings. Gonzalez was a locksmith, and vowed to flee the Castro regime in Cuba. He was based in Miami, Florida. Bob Barker stared downward as the other burglars weren't talking. Eugenio Martinez, James W. McCord, Jr., and Frank Sturgis, stared forlornly as the American press had a field day. In the end, Woodward begun to shift away, and remembered the days in which no one had ever heard of Watergate before 1972. And, with Carl Bernstein, they'd had unearthed the deep, dark, secrets of the White House...and were determined to bring President Richard Milhous Nixon down.

Eugenio Rolando Martinez also lived in Cuba. He moved to Miami, Florida, and was a real estate agent. He hated Fidel Castro, and lived in America ever since. James Walter (W.) McCord, Jr., grew up in Waurika, Oklahoma in Jefferson County. After being educated at Baylor University, James headed to the University of Austin, Texas, (1949), when he was twenty-five. By 1965, he received his Bachelor of Science. He was forty-one. During The Vietnam War, which continued to drag onward in the nineteen sixties, Mc Cord Jr., majored in International Affairs, (George Washington University); he was recruited by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, (FBI). He worked as a General Service, (GS-15), station in the Agency: (Office of Security); Mc Cord, Jr., also worked at Langley, Virginia. He met investigative journalist Russell Warren "Russ" Baker, there was a meeting between Mc Cord, Director of Central Intelligence Allen (Welsh) Dulles, (April 7, 1893 – January 29, 1969), and a Air Force Colonel; Baker was told Dulles, (quote: "Mc Cord is the best man we have", unquote); Mc Cord, Jr., reached the status of Lieutenant-Colonel for the United States Federal Reserve, that led to his resignation after his intelligence gatherings over the Cuba matter. Frank Sturgis and his family lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by nineteen forty-two, (in the middle of World War II). At seventeen, he joined the United States Marine Corps, (USMC); he served under Major-General Merritt Austin Edson, (April 25, 1897 – August 14, 1955); Edson's career was full of awards in the American military. After the war ended, he attended the Virginia Polytechnic Institute. By June 5, 1946, he worked at the Norfolk Police Department. He soon found that there was corruption that was everywhere. By October 5, 1946, (about five months' later), Sturgis left the police force. In the nineteen fifties through to the nineteen sixties, Sturgis headed to Cuba, where he helped the Castro Government. He then taught Ernesto "Che" Guevara, (June 14, 1928 – October 9, 1967) in war tactics. Sturgis had already met Bernard Barker in nineteen sixty. It wasn't until nineteen seventy-two that both men would be reunited when they were involved in the Watergate break-in.
