The Washington Post today confirmed that 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. The confirmation came from Woodward and Bernstein, the two Washington Post reporters who broke the Watergate story, and their former top editor, Bradlee. Only three people -- Woodward, Bernstein and Bradlee -- knew his identity, and they vowed not to name 'Deep Throat' until after his death.
