W. Mark Felt is Deepthroat

Breaking.....W. Mark Felt (Deputy director of the FBI) has admitted through his lawyers as being ther infamous "Deepthroat". More details to follow.

Update: CNN is reporting that, in an article in the next Vanity Fair, W. Mark Felt has stepped forward as the “Deep Throat” informant for reporters Woodward and Bernstein. Felt was the crucial inside source for exposing the Watergate scandal, which ultimately resulted in Nixon’s resignation.

During Watergate, Felt was the number 2 or 3 man at the FBI and, since then, has been long considered (with a handful of others) as possible suspect for the infamous leak. Now at age 91 and clearly ailing, Felt has finally revealed the best-kept secret in journalism. Anti-climactic, no? Nevertheless, congrats to Vanity Fair — there’s a light in Graydon’s tunnel, after all.

Now the speculation begins, what was his motivation.

Update II: A concerned public official intent on doing the right thing or a disgrunted "assistant" hell bent on pay back for not getting the top job. The battle lines are set watch closely now as to who takes which position, that will tell you the politics of the individuals involved.
