Deep Throat

Finally….a mystery has been solved!!

“Who was Deep Throat”. This question had become famous like “Who really killed JFK?” or “Did Anastasia survive the assassination?” and so on and so forth. I guess a lot people were disappointed when Deep Throat did not turn out to be some big shot. When I read the story I remember a scene from a Richard Burton movie called The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. The best scene is the last scene where the two main characters are trying to escape from East Berlin (remember?). The woman is completely disenfranchised with communism and spies etc. and Richard Burton’s character verbally attacks her and tells her (I’m paraphrasing here) :-

“Do you think spies are super heroes, muscular men who save the day? NO. They are your average broken, jealous, greedy men.” He goes on to describe the bad business of spying completely contrary to the picture of a perfect spy like James Bond.

This is probably the disappointment that everyone feels when it was revealed that Deep Throat was not Kisinger’s aid or even Papa G. Bush. It was just the FBI #2 who was jealous that his job went to someone else.
