Victory Lap

E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy fly back to Washington, D.C. CIA’s Stephen Greenwood meets them at the airport, where Hunt gives Greenwood the film for developing by CIA. Greenwood delivers prints to Hunt the same day. The CIA keeps a copy of the photos of Liddy and Hunt (in CIA-provided “disguises” that don’t disguise them at all) goofing off in front of Lewis Fielding’s identifiable door. Liddy is a bad influence on Hunt, though he does make the old veteran feel younger. [NOTE: The CIA later turns their copies of the photos over to Watergate investigators, which results in all criminal charges against Daniel Ellsberg for leaking the Pentagon Papers to be dropped.]
