    Who knew that all those years we were watching men in gray felt hats on The FBI catching the bad guys, their agency was really a house divided between, as it turns out, Mr. Gray and Mr. Felt? Now we are being treated to the spectacle of a public joust between these two gentlemen. Mr. Gray is saying that he was never really a louse but that louse Felt was leaking to make him look like a louse. Mr. Felt says that he may have been a louse but only because that louse Gray was lousing things up and to...

    In "The Secret Man," to be published next week by Simon & Schuster, Woodward writes that he learned in 1976 from then-assistant attorney general Stanley Pottinger that Felt, who had been the number two man at the FBI, had given himself away while testifying before a grand jury. Asked "Were you Deep Throat," Felt initially said "No," but his manner alerted Pottinger to the probability that he was lying. Woodward also reveals for the first time the address of the famous Virginia parking garage where most of his meetings with Deep Throat were conducted: 1401 Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn. The...

    A new book about "Deep Throat" by Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward says W. Mark Felt denied being the Watergate source during a 1976 grand jury appearance, according to USA Today. The book, "The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat," says Felt hastily withdrew his denial when a Justice Department official reminded him he was under oath, according to the newspaper, which said it obtained a copy from a Virginia bookstore that mistakenly put copies out for sale. The book is due in stores next Wednesday. According to USA Today, the book says Woodward suspected that someone at the Post was...

    L. Patrick Gray, the FBI chief during the Watergate break-in, says he believes deputy W. Mark Felt became the anonymous source known as Deep Throat because he was angry at being passed over as J. Edgar Hoover's successor and wanted to sabotage Gray. "I think there was a sense of revenge in his heart, and a sense of dumping my candidacy, if you will," Gray told ABC's "This Week" during an interview for its Sunday broadcast.

    Speaking out for the first time since the Watergate scandal ended his career, former acting FBI Director L. Patrick Gray revealed Sunday that documents the White House ordered to him to hide implicated President John F. Kennedy in political and sexual misconduct. Appearing on ABC's "This Week," the 88-year-old Gray described a June 28, 1972 White House meeting with Nixon counsel John Dean, where Dean handed him a mysterious envelope. "Dean told me that this envelope contained papers that were removed from [Watergate co-conspirator] E. Howard Hunt's safe, [saying], 'They have nothing to do with the Watergate investigation - but...

    Woodward's Debt to Deep Throat After the big stories, sometimes more than credit is due, sources say, by Sydney H. Schanberg June 21st, 2005 12:40 PM   The Watergate story 33 years ago can be fairly marked as the starting point of the age of journalists as celebrities. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein weren't celebrities when they cracked the story for The Washington Post, but they soon would be, and a wave of emulators quickly began applying to journalism schools. Woodward in particular has remained a celebrity and striver for attention. He has also been a diligent worker, turning out...

    One of the main culprits of the Watergate scandal, John Dean, who spent 4 months in prison, surfaced as a media hero. He has also surfaced as an expert on the alleged scandalous behavior of the Bush Administration. He wrote the book, Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush. But the facts, which have survived several challenges in court, indicate that Dean had a much bigger role in Watergate than reported by Woodward and Bernstein. The book Silent Coup argues that the Watergate break-ins were really meant to cover up embarrassing information about a call-girl ring whose...

    Will it never go away; will Deep Throat not peacefully fade into the sunset? It’s over—the greatest political mystery of modern times solved. But, alas, no. According to the Washington Post, Mssrs. Woodward and Bernstein, the investigative reporters who won Pulitzer prizes for bringing down the Nixon administration with the cooperation of Deep Throat, have a book coming out on July 6. These reporters are really something! I mean, I take a couple years to write a book; they have done it in a few weeks. Why would you hurry a book like this, or was it all written in...

    Sometimes a great nation changes its mind. Sometimes that's a good thing The most jarring thing I read last week was a headline. My guess is that the headline, in a British newspaper, may be the most jarring thing you read this week: Nixon Becomes Watergate Hero. Forget for a moment the argument, which is hard to summarize and even harder to support. The important thing is that the way we look at Watergate is changing even if only one fact about Watergate has changed. (That would be the identity of Deep Throat. He was former FBI official Mark Felt.)The...

Redford said the revelation that former Deputy FBI Director Mark Felt was Deep Throat, the Post's secret informant in the Watergate scandal, has him "waiting to see if anybody is going to connect where we were then and where we are now, because the same elements are...

    Mark Felt Hinted at Exotic Antigravity Project? Thien Vehl, jeudi, 09/06/2005 - 19:26 Fil de presse | Politique A few years ago while in San Francisco, Bob Woodward made an intriguing remark. He told the San Francisco Chronicle he wouldn’t expose Deep Throat until the man died but that when he died people would begin to research the case and one thing would lead to another. Woodward said it would all lead to a “fantastic” discovery. Now that we know that Deep Throat was W. Mark Felt, former #2 man at the FBI and the architect of J. Edgar Hoover’s...
