Deep Throat?

W. Mark Felt, was second-in-command of the FBI in the early 70s, and he has revealed that he was Deep Throat in an article for Vanity Fair. As the key source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein during their Watergate investigation for The Washington Post, Deep Throat's information was critical. Their investigation and the resulting controversy culminated in the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.

Felt, now 91, was always among those speculated to have been Deep Throat. He denied being Deep Throat in 1999. He has come out with the information now at the urging of his family. Woodward and Bernstein will neither confirm nor deny Felt's claim. They still plan to reveal their source's identity after s/he dies.
