One of the leading European newspapers, Le Matin of Paris, describes G. Gordon Liddy as "a man of fantastic intelligence and complexity." Educated privately by Benedictines and Jesuits, Liddy earned a B.S. degree from Fordham University and an Ll.D. from the Fordham Law School, graduating as an editor of The Fordham Law Review. After two years service as an Army artillery officer during the Korean War, Liddy entered the FBI as a Special Agent, rapidly earned multiple commendations from the late J. Edgar Hoover and, at age 29, became the youngest Bureau Supervisor at FBI national headquarters in Washington, DC, where he served during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. Liddy resigned from the FBI in 1962 to practice international law in Manhattan. Thereafter he served as a prosecutor, ran unsuccessfully for Congress from the 28th district of New York, then in 1968 ran the presidential campaign of Richard Nixon in that district. In the Nixon administration Liddy served first as Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury, was then appointed Enforcement Legislative Counsel, authored the Explosives Control Act and, in 1971, was sent to the White House as Staff Assistant to the President of the United States. At the White House Liddy had oversight responsibility for Treasury policy on firearms and explosives and authored the memorandum that led to the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Subsequently he was assigned additional special duties as a member of the top-secret White House Special Investigations Group. He resigned his White House post to accept the positions of General Counsel of the 1972 Republican presidential campaign and the campaign finance committee, with additional duties as campaign political intelligence director. The rest is history. For his role in Watergate, and for refusing to testify against co-conspirators, Liddy was sentenced to over 20 years in prison. He served nearly five years, many in maximum security, including 106 days of solitary confinement, before his release by President Jimmy Carter "in the interests of justice". Rated by the Treasury Department as a pistol expert whose draw and hit was timed electronically by the FBI at 60/100 of a second, Liddy was once assigned by the Secret Service to protect President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He is an FAA licensed pilot and a life member of the Special Operations Association. Today he is the host of "The G. Gordon Liddy Show", a radio program syndicated to 600+ markets that is now in its 13th year. His books have appeared on the "New York Times" best-seller lists and has written four book reviews for the newspaper, in addition to authoring numerous magazine articles, has lectured extensively, from Berkeley to The Oxford Union, and is an actor in motion pictures and television, including guest-starring roles in Miami Vice (1984), Airwolf (1984), MacGyver (1985), Feds (1997), several "Perry Mason" TV movies and and 18 Wheels of Justice (2000). He is also a frequent guest on Fox Television's Hannity & Colmes (1996) and MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews (1997). In 1992 Liddy enrolled at the Israeli Defense Force Paratroop School at Tel Nov, qualified for and was awarded his wings. He has re-qualified and jumped twice more since, and was given the honor of leading the stick out of the aircraft on his jump in January 2003, with the elite IDF parachute regiment. In August 2003 he rode his Harley-Davidson motorcycle the full 1,846 miles from Washington, DC, to Sturgis, SD, for the 63rd Annual motorcycle festival. He's also ridden with the Los Angeles chapter of Hell's Angels and is a member of the Honor Legion of the New York City Police Department. Liddy and his wife have three sons and two daughters. Four of the five have served as officers in the military. One son is a lawyer who is a two-war combat veteran reserve Lieutenant Colonel in the US Marine Corps, just returned from Baghdad. Another is a career Commander in the US Navy SEALs who is currently assigned to the Pentagon, holds a masters degree from Johns Hopkins and is a Ph.D. candidate at Tulane. Liddy's lecture audiences have ranged from an association of independent over-the-road truck drivers to the Oxford Union and, according to "The Wall Street Journal", he is "one of the most sought-after speakers in the nation."
