“I’m The Guy They Called Deep Throat”, or so says the headline in Vanity Fair. It seems to be the answer to the question many have posed over the last 30 or so years, the Washington Post have apparently confirmed it:

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.
