How Bob Woodward Met DeepThroat; The Book that became an article

 

From the Washington Post comes a great read article on how a young lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, Bob Woodward, would go on to meet Mark Felt. As they say the rest is history.

When I mentioned the graduate work to Felt, he perked up immediately, saying he had gone to night law school at GW in the 1930s before joining — and this is the first time he mentioned it — the FBI. While in law school, he said, he had worked full time for a senator — his home-state senator from Idaho. I said that I had been doing some volunteer work at the office of my congressman, John Erlenborn, a Republican from the district in Wheaton, Ill., where I had been raised.

So we had two connections — graduate work at GW and work with elected representatives from our home states.

As they say the rest is history.

However, in reading this article a thought came to mind; what pages of Bob Woodward’s book was I reading that had been on the shelf for 30 years ready for publication only waiting until the passing of Deep Throat? Looks like we get to read it for free.

      I don’t really care how they met. I just hope that the resurfacing of this story will inspire every single insider out there who has at least a spec of connection with his conscious to step forward and blow the whistle on all the crap that going on these days in all forums!
