McTaggart has no regrets over her pursuit of a private settlement of the issue. "I respected the fact that [Goodwin] had a reputation to protect," she says. "I don't want to destroy her reputation or have her book considered worthless. She's made an important contribution, and it,s a shame that she allowed this to happen, because she had something so special with her access to the Kennedy material. . . . It's mystifying to me" why she did it.
