Deep Throat Revealed

"Despite three decades of intense speculation, the identity of Deep Throat -- the source who leaked key details of Nixonís Watergate cover-up to Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein -- has never been revealed. Now, at age 91, W. Mark Felt, number two at the F.B.I. in the early 70s, is finally admitting to that historic, anonymous role."

The July issue of Vanity Fair has the story.

Update: According to the AP, the Washington Post "had no immediate comment."

Update II: In the May 1992 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, James Mann concluded that Felt was a prime Deep Throat suspect.

Update III: Bob Woodward will write an article on today's news for Thursday. A statement on the newspaper's website is expected later tonight.
