at it briefly, Kennedy's name was there. According to an
interview with writer Debbie Davis, Ben Bradlee once told
television personality David Frost that the diary was not even a
diary but in fact a sketchbook.

In this regard, Tony Bradlee made a telling comment to the
National Enquirer in 1976. In the notes written up from her
interview, after she has discussed (with a bit of ambiguity)
whether or not Kennedy's name was in the diary, she is quoted as
saying: "But the diary was destroyed. I'll tell you that much is
true." The suggestion in the last sentence is that everything
else is not. Or, at least, the diary's destruction is all she

If Mary's own sister is not forthright, then who among the rest
is? Don't rely on Rosenbaum to find out. He is a friend of both
Angleton and the Post. Consider the man who helped him write his
1976 Mary Meyer piece, one Philip Nobile. When I interviewed
Deborah Davis about the attempted censorship of her book, which
exposed the Post's ties to the CIA, she told me that her troubles
began with a whispering campaign to her publisher. The whisperer
was Rosenbaum's partner Nobile. When that wasn't enough, Nobile
talked to Alexander Cockburn of the Village Voice. Cockburn
printed the rumors that her book was unfounded and that she had
cried in her publishers' office when challenged on this. Both
accounts were untrue. But Cockburn was not an unbiased observer.

As Nobile must have known, his live-in girlfriend at the time was
Kay Graham's daughter. It is odd that Rosenbaum would choose to
write on such a controversial subject with someone who seems to
be such a friend to the Post. Related to that, in his 1991
reflections on the 1976 article, and in the article itself, he
tries to insinuate that these people - Bradlee, the Truitts, the
Angletons - are actually friends of Kennedy. In addition,
