Robert Redford (search), who played Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in "All the President's Men," said he used to speculate on who "Deep Throat" was and had figured "it probably had to do with the FBI."

Redford said the revelation that former Deputy FBI Director Mark Felt (search) was the secret source who helped the Post report on Watergate has him "waiting to see if anybody is going to connect where we were then and where we are now."

"You can go right down the line [in the Bush administration], there's about 15 issues as strong or as big as the Watergate break-in was that have come and died out," Redford said last week.

He cited the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the "Downing Street memo" (search), which suggested President Bush's officials tweaked intelligence to support their invasion plans.

"There are guys out there digging and digging. There are stories appearing every single day," he said. "But is it getting any traction with the public?"

Redford said he once asked Woodward who Deep Throat was, but the reporter would not tell him.

"Some part of me did not want it to come out, because it was this great piece of melodrama in the middle of this movie," he said.

It was 33 years ago Friday — June 17, 1972 — that burglars broke into the Democratic National Committee's offices in the Watergate Hotel in Washington.
