Deep Throat Identity Confirmed

Wow. I never thought we'd hear the confirmed identity of arguably the most famous of anonymous sources out there. There have been various theories about who it was, especially after the release of the reporter's notes, but the identity has now been confirmed.

SANTA ROSA, Calif. - The Washington Post said Tuesday that a former FBI official, W. Mark Felt, was the confidential source known as "Deep Throat" who provided the newspaper information that led to President Nixon's impeachment and eventual resignation.

The paper made its announcement on its Web site after Felt, 91 and living in California, talked to a lawyer who wrote a magazine article for Vanity Fair.

The Washington Post has a great deal of coverage on this as well (and here's their confirmation).
