ALL THE PREMIER'S MEN

The following dialogue features in the award-winning Alan J Pakula film, All The President's Men, starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. Based on the book by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the film traces the development of their joint investigation into covert practices conducted on behalf of the Republican party; deeds sanctioned by the White House administration under President Richard Nixon, and which first came to light following the June 1972 break-in at the Watergate offices of the Democratic National Committee:

(From 1:22:22)

TV interviewer: "I'd like to move on now to the subject of the break in at the Watergate and the controversies that keep coming out of that. It has recently, very recently been reported now that some documents were torn up at the Committee to re-elect the President, er, are you investigating the er, the tearing up of those documents?"

Richard G Kleindienst (US Attorney General): "Well I think that came out in a story in the Washington Post. I think the investigation that has just conclude itself [sic] has probably been one of the most intensive that the Department of Justice and the FBI has ever been involved in, er, some fifteen hundred persons were interviewed, eighteen hundred leads were followed, three hundred and thirty-three agents were involved, fourteen thousand man-hours, fifty-one of the fifty-nine FBI field officers were involved, er, and that, I think, is a great credit to justice in this country."

TV interviewer: "Did you know that documents had been destroyed?"

Richard G Kleindienst: "No I did not."

Following a reported break in at apartment 5A, The Ocean Club, Praia da Luz, Portugal, on the night of 3 May, 2007, a major Portuguese police investigation was launched into the disappearance of young Madeleine McCann. The investigation, initially supported by police representatives from the UK, was eventually suspended after the two principal 'arguidos' (persons of interest to police), Madeleine's parents, returned to the UK. Their suspect status having been lifted by the Portuguese authorities, there followed an official investigative hiatus until, in May 2011, and with the backing of Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May, the Metropolitan Police announced they were to embark upon an investigative review of the case. As reported in the Daily Telegraph (18.5.2011): 'A team of 30 detectives from Scotland Yard will be assigned to the search for missing Madeleine McCann in an investigation which could cost millions of pounds.'

That process, known as Operation Grange, remains on-going.

Journalist (speaking to Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood of the Metropolitan Police at a press conference on 4.7.2013): "What has changed, errm... Have you had new information, new evidence? What has changed to lead you to open this investigation?"

DCI Andy Redwood: "Well, as we have worked carefully over the last sort of two years, through that review process, we have now processed some 30,000 documents and some of those documents could have, say, one page, some have got hundreds of pages. From that, you will recall last year that I said we had 195 investigative opportunities. We have now generated over 3,800 actions and it is from a careful analysis of that work that we have been able to establish new thinking and we have spoken to witnesses that have provided new evidence for us."

Journalist: "How... how big is the team that is involved in this and where do you go from here?"

DCI Andy Redwood: "My team consists of 37 staff; that's a mixture, predominantly of police officers but also police staff as well. The size of my team will stay largely the same, errm... and moving forward from here we will hopefully have a position where - whilst the legal inquiries are being conducted, errm... by the Portuguese - that we have the ability to be present while those inquiries are taking place. So I envisage a situation where a small number of officers will be present in Portugal."

Journalist: "And obviously there has been many years since this case - are you still confident you can discover what happened to Madeleine?"

DCI Andy Redwood: "We have been in a unique position, in drawing those three key strands together. That has given us the ability to see this case with fresh eyes and through that bring out new... genuinely new lines of inquiry and I'm hopeful that when we pursue those lines of inquiry that we'll be able to bring some sort of resolution. Whether we'll be able to solve it is a different issue but I hope that we'll be able to make... have the ability to move the investigation on."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said at a Metropolitan Police briefing on 3.10.2013: "There remain a total of 41 persons of interest, 15 of which there are UK nationals. The work on three of those 15 UK Nationals nears completion with indications that they are not of any further interest to Operation Grange.

"Of note, we currently have 30 ILORs (31 including Portugal) in various countries following up requests for information concerning telephones used in Praia da Luz at the material time.

"We have engaged with Crimewatch to assist us in a public appeal in their October programme, and have expanded our appeal for information to Germany, Holland and Ireland.

"The appeal will piece together new lines of enquiry, and DCI Redwood will be appearing alongside Mr and Mrs McCann to appeal for information."

DCI Andy Redwood said at that same briefing: "The information and purpose of this broader appeal is based on phone traffic analysis we have examined, which determines the footfall of people in the resort at that time. Our investigation in the UK remains ongoing. The total number of documents we have to go through is 39,148, of which we have processed 21,614 so far."

If it quacks like a duck...

Hi interested, I think Kate also worked hard to muddy the waters and her Book is testimony to that. Didn't she say when she decided to write the book that she would have to ask Payne's wife to help her remember.?

What the heck does Redwood mean by this last sentence? The question was are you confident that the team will discover what happened to Madeleine, and Redwood's answer (if you can call it that) is that he hopes he can bring some sort of resolution. Well, what sort of resolution? The only two resolutions that I can think of which may not necessarily discover exactly what happened to Madeleine would be finding her alive and well (highly unlikely), or sadly, finding her dead body (much higher likelihood). Short of solving the crime, there is nothing else that could bring any resolution to this case.

Hi jinvta, Redwood hasn't got what we would call an "intelligent face" and after £6 million and over 2 years he has come up with zilch, nada, nothing.!!!
Yet still he is allowed to waste taxpayers money.
