In One Eye

Perhaps the greatest journalistic mystery of the 20th century may have been solved.
A former FBI official claims he was "Deep Throat," the long-anonymous source who leaked secrets about President Nixon's Watergate coverup to The Washington Post, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday.

W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s, kept the secret even from his family until 2002, when he confided to a friend that he had been Post reporter Bob Woodward's source, the magazine said.
I'm sure that there's still a lot left to this story, but Felt certainly wasn't in the list of most named candidates.
