Deep Throat Revealed

The Washington Post confirmed that former number-two official at the FBI, W. Mark Felt, was “Deep Throat,” the secret source who helped Woodward and Bernstein topple a president.

I had always known, of course, that “Deep Throat” would be revealed sooner rather than later — all the major players in the Nixon administration period are rapidly aging. Still, this is exciting. I’ve wondered for a long time — ever since seeing All the President’s Men — who this man could have been.

Now that speculation is at and end, I will reveal that my pet theory was that it was Henry Kissinger. Now wouldn’t that have been something?
