    a true patriot, in an age of pretenders

    CBS News

    Former FBI #2 Mark Felt has come forward as the man called "Deep Throat."

    "Deep Throat" was the code name given to the high-level source that gave information on the Watergate Hotel break-in and cover-up to Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein, which led to the resignation of Richard Nixon.

    Both reporters and their editor, the only people who knew the identity of Deep Throat since the 70s, have confirmed that he and Felt are one and the same.

    This guy is responsible for one of the bravest and most important acts of the last century and I wish I could send him a case of whiskey and a thank you letter.

    Even though I am intregued and facinated with the likes of G. Gordon Liddy, for many reasons, I found the deception and criminal conduct abhorrent.

    Thanks to Woodward and Bernstein with their persistence into discovering the truth, the case got cracked. The more you learn about politics, the more pissed off you get.

    I would just make the casual remark that this could be an example that governement is not the good, wholesome, benevolent institution that the overwhelming majority of Americans believe it is. Rather, the goverment is a collection of individuals, a certain KIND of individuals who enjoy power. Be wary of those people, and Watergate is a perfect example that this **** happens from the top on down. I don't consider myself a raving lunatic liberal or a conspiracist. I have a degree in History and that is the perspective I use when forming my opinions. Human nature hasn't changed all that much over time.

    Very interesting.

    When Nixon met Mao Zedong and complained about the Watergate investigation, Mao said something in terms of: "I don't understand this whole Watergate thing, isn't that how you are SUPPOSED to do politics?"

    The fear of communism washing up on the west coast made administration resort to communist tactics:).

    BTW, I'm a little disturbed by the code name "Deep Throat"....but that's just me...

    "Deep Throat" is the name of a porn movie from the 70s that was one of the first to get a lot of mainstream popularity. Felt chose it as his code name and when W and B identified him by it, the popularity exploded. So to speak.

    Pax Baculum weighs in on Deep Throat and Watergate:

    Apparently, Nixon didn't do anything wrong. He was just sitting quietly in the Oval Office, personally writing responses to children's letters to Jesus when a group of homosexual DNC prostitute operatives burst in, had butt-sex on his desk, and framed him.

    Poor guy.

    The side story this week is the damage to Woodword and Bernstiens prestige with the Felt unmasking. WHile many were amazed that they kept their secret for so long (and that nobody else in Washington busted the Felt link wide open), it is becoming more clear that those two reporters were also protecting their own reputations. It turns out they were basically getting hand fed FBI info and may not have been responsible for much, if any, investigative journalism worthy of their awards.

    An interesting perspective from non other than Ben Stein....


    Deep Throat and Genocide
    By Ben Stein
    Published 6/1/2005 12:22:42 AM


    Re: The "news" that former FBI agent Mark Felt broke the law, broke his code of ethics, broke his oath and was the main source for Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward's articles that helped depose Richard Nixon, a few thoughts.

    Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible? He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POW's, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel's life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?

    Oh, now I remember. He lied. He was a politician who lied. How remarkable. He lied to protect his subordinates who were covering up a ridiculous burglary that no one to this date has any clue about its purpose. He lied so he could stay in office and keep his agenda of peace going. That was his crime. He was a peacemaker and he wanted to make a world where there was a generation of peace. And he succeeded.

    That is his legacy. He was a peacemaker. He was a lying, conniving, covering up peacemaker. He was not a lying, conniving drug addict like JFK, a lying, conniving war starter like LBJ, a lying, conniving seducer like Clinton -- a lying, conniving peacemaker. That is Nixon's kharma.

    When his enemies brought him down, and they had been laying for him since he proved that Alger Hiss was a traitor, since Alger Hiss was their fair-haired boy, this is what they bought for themselves in the Kharma Supermarket that is life:

    1.) The defeat of the South Vietnamese government with decades of death and hardship for the people of Vietnam.

    2.) The assumption of power in Cambodia by the bloodiest government of all time, the Khmer Rouge, who killed a third of their own people, often by making children beat their own parents to death. No one doubts RN would never have let this happen.

    So, this is the great boast of the enemies of Richard Nixon, including Mark Felt: they made the conditions necessary for the Cambodian genocide. If there is such a thing as kharma, if there is such a thing as justice in this life of the next, Mark Felt has bought himself the worst future of any man on this earth. And Bob Woodward is right behind him, with Ben Bradlee bringing up the rear. Out of their smug arrogance and contempt, they hatched the worst nightmare imaginable: genocide. I hope they are happy now -- because their future looks pretty bleak to me.
