It’s Felt

Washington Post Confirms Felt As ‘Deep Throat’

The article, written and published so quickly that the original page title was still “Small-454 Graphics Template” and it contained no first reference to Bob Woodward, by William Branigin and David Von Drehle begins:

“The Washington Post today confirmed that W. Mark Felt, a former number-two official at the FBI, was ‘Deep Throat,’ the secretive source who provided information that helped unravel the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s and contributed to the resignation of president Richard M. Nixon.

“Woodward said Felt helped The Post at a time of tense relations between the White House and much of the FBI hierarchy. He said the Watergate break-in came shortly after the death of legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, Felt’s mentor, and that Felt and other bureau officials wanted to see an FBI veteran promoted to succeed Hoover.”

Woodward will publish an extensive article in Thursday’s Post.
