W. Mark Felt, who retired from the FBI after rising to its second most senior position, has identified himself as the "Deep Throat" source quoted by The Washington Post to break the Watergate scandal that led to President Nixon's resignation, Vanity Fair magazine said Tuesday.

Originally posted by Blanket JacksonIt just flashed on CNN that Woodward has confirmed that Deep Throat was in fact Felt. There's no link on their page this second, but it's right on the BREAKING NEWS bar.

Second-in-command at the FBI? Can't help but feel a little disappointed. By the way, as I type this Pat Buchanan is bitching about Felt on MSNBC's "Hardball." Absolutely hilarious. Also interesting to note that Chris Matthews spoke about the Nixon tapes, saying that Felt was specifically mentioned as an ambitious and loyal guy who wanted to cooperate them, with Matthews going so far as to say they were insinuating he was a "suck-up." Don't know how true that last part is, since I haven't heard the tapes myself.
