Deep Throat Jr.?

DEEP THROAT JR.?….So who’s the British Deep Throat who’s been leaking the Downing Street Memos? The Washington Post’s Jefferson Morley takes a guess:

A story in The Independent last month pointed to a more plausible candidate for the British Deep Throat. Sir Christopher Meyer, former British ambassador to the United States, is now writing his memoirs for publication later this year, according to the liberal London daily.

“The diplomat was present when Mr. Blair met George Bush in the President’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, in March 2002 and played a key role in the run- up to the war,” the story noted.

Meyer would have had access to top secret memoranda. Documents previously leaked to Smith show that Meyer was a critic of Bush administration policy on Iraq. And friends of the former diplomat were quoted as saying his book was “likely to make uncomfortable reading for Mr. Blair.” And, probably for President Bush too.

Another mystery to unravel!
