Huston's historical notoriety is a consequence of President Nixon's order in June 1970 that he draft a plan for redirecting and coordinating domestic intelligence-gathering activities.

Rickover had dumped the nuclear reactor from Seawolf into the North Atlantic in the 1970s, an environmental nightmare that is still kept secret today. Few objected openly, but privately many submariners had troubled consciences about a hot reactor sitting on the seabed.
