's Deep Throat:
William Pierce Broke Felt Story in 1974

Mark Felt in 1973

Dr. Pierce's prescient analysis of the Watergate affair included revelations of government intrigue found nowhere else.

THE CORPORATE MEDIA DIDN'T break the story until last year, but an article by Dr. William L. Pierce -- National Vanguard's founder -- published in September 1974 revealed that Jewish FBI official Mark Felt (pictured) was the Watergate informant who funneled information damaging to the Nixon administration to the media. Pierce's piece also brought together all the strands of information showing that it was a "Jewish network," recognized by Nixon himself, that worked to bring down the Nixon White House.

Dr. Pierce's incisive and accurate article gave credit to an "insider" Jewish publication, Commentary, for first publishing the speculation (now available online) that Felt was "Deep Throat," but Commentary left open the possibility that the informant was a "composite figure" of which Felt was just a part. Only Dr. Pierce brought together the disparate threads of information showing: 1) that Felt was "settling a score" with Nixon for failing to appoint him head of the FBI over non-Jew L. Patrick Gray; and 2) that unreleased Nixon tapes indicated that the President himself suspected Felt was part of a Jewish media-government cabal determined to bring down his administration.

Interestingly, Gray himself, shortly before his death in July 2005, confirmed Dr. Pierce's analysis. Gray said that he initially believed Felt's repeated assurances that he was not the leak, and that he therefore refused five separate demands from the Nixon White House to fire Felt. When Felt admitted that he was "Deep Throat" in May, 2005, Gray stated that Felt's anger at being passed over must have been the cause of his decision to leak Watergate details to the Post -- exactly what Dr. Pierce had stated 31 years earlier.

It's also worth noting that Nixon's Vice President Spiro Agnew had to be maneuvered out of office (and was so maneuvered in 1973) before the engineered Nixon resignation, to eliminate the possibility that Agnew -- an American of Greek ancestry with strong anti-Zionist views -- might assume office. Agnew later wrote a novel, The Canfield Decision, in which Jewish-Zionist influence over the American political process is portrayed in a negative light.

Transcripts of other Nixon conversations which made the news in 2002, in which the then-President candidly discussed the dangers of Jewish power with evangelist Billy Graham, also confirmed parts of Pierce's analysis.

Nixon Suspicions about Watergate Leaks Confirmed

'Deep Throat' Identity Bared

by Dr. William L. Pierce
from Attack! newspaper, Issue 30, September 1974

THE TWO Washington Post reporters, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, who played as active a role as anyone in the mass-media campaign to publicize the Watergate affair and drive former President Nixon from office, received their leaks, surreptitiously copied documents, and other inside information from a number of sources inside the Federal bureaucracy in Washington. One high government official, however, previously unidentified, provided by far the most important and damaging information which the Washington Post used in its anti-Nixon campaign. In their recently published book on Watergate, All the President's Men, Bernstein and Woodward refer to this single most important source only by the code name "Deep Throat."

According to Bernstein and Woodward, "Deep Throat" was familiar with all the details of the Watergate investigation and met with the two reporters on a number of occasions, furnishing them with the latest inside information -- including copies of FBI "302" reports, which contain raw data obtained from FBI interrogations.

"Deep Throat" took elaborate precautions to prevent anyone other than the two Washington Post reporters from learning his identity. When he had information for them he would situate a flowerpot on his windowsill in a certain way so that they could see it as they drove by. Then the three would rendezvous secretly at a prearranged location.

After the publication of All the President's Men, there was a great deal of speculation in Washington, both among newsmen and government officials, as to who "Deep Throat" might be. The mystery was cleared up when Commentary, in its July issue, revealed that former Deputy Associate Director of the FBI, Mark W. Felt, Jr., was the secret informer. Commentary is the publication of the American Jewish Committee, the most powerful Jewish organization in America.

Felt, who. has since resigned from the FBI, was mightily miffed when Nixon passed over him and appointed L. Patrick Gray instead to head the Bureau after the death of J. Edgar Hoover. He exacted a sweet revenge by providing the news media with the information which led eventually to Nixon's forced resignation.

In the midst of his mounting difficulties, President Nixon made a shrewd guess as to who was responsible for his agony, but he confided this information only to his counsel, John Dean. In a memorable meeting with Dean in the Oval Office on February 28, 1973, Nixon warned him against having any dealings with Mark Felt.

The Jews in the government and in the media, Nixon explained to Dean, form a network. They work together and pass information to one another. Thus, confidential information would be leaked from Jewish officials in the government to Jews in the media whenever it suited Jewish interests. Nixon knew that someone high in the FBI hierarchy was collaborating with the Washington Post against him, and he suspected it was the FBI's Jewish deputy associate director, Mark Felt.

Before he released to the public the transcripts of the White House tapes, President Nixon carefully deleted all but one reference to Felt from the transcript of the February 28 meeting with John Dean, but the House Judiciary Committee later obtained the original tape of that meeting and made a complete transcript.

Commentary's exposure of Mark Felt as "Deep Throat" adds one more piece to the fascinating pattern of Jewish responsibility for America's traumatic change of leaders this summer. Playing the leading roles in this drama, of course, were the media masters -- the men whose unrelenting campaign of abuse against Nixon finally turned the tide of public opinion.

In key supporting roles, in addition to Felt, were Earl Silbert, the Jewish prosecutor in the Justice Department who had the overall responsibility for the prosecution of the Watergate defendants, and Samuel Dash, the Jewish chief of staff and grand strategist of the Senate Select Committee which turned the Watergate investigation into a non-stop television extravaganza.

When the curtain came up on the finale, two other Jewish actors appeared on the stage. One was Henry Kissinger, who, through his former aide, General Alexander M. Haig, told Nixon the time had finally come to go. On September 16, Haig was rewarded for his faithful execution of Kissinger's nasty errand by being named supreme commander of NATO and commander of all U.S. forces in Europe.

The other Jew was Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger, who, a few days before the end, quietly passed the word to military commanders in the Pentagon that any orders which they might receive from the White House were to be disregarded. Schlesinger took into his own hands the President's prerogatives as commander-in-chief of America's armed forces, thus forestalling any possibility that the worm might turn at the last moment and surround the Washington Post with tanks or make some other military move to upset the plans of the clique which was forcing him from office.

(Editor's note, the original article came from the September 1974 issue, No. 30, of Attack!, published by William Pierce.)
