The April 5 issue of
Rolling Stone features the deathbed confession of CIA operative and key
Bay of Pigs/Watergate/Nixon administration figure E. Howard Hunt, The
Last Confession of E. Howard Hunt by Erik Hedegaard. This piece is
significant not only for its exploration of Hunt, but for breakthrough
information that appears to thoroughly corroborate the work of key John F.
Kennedy assassination researchers and historians.
Who killed JFK?
According to Hunt�s
confession, which was taken by his son, St. John (�Saint�) Hunt, over the
course of many personal and carefully planned father-son meetings, the
following individuals were among the key participants:
Lyndon B. Johnson:
LBJ, whose own career was assisted by JFK nemesis J. Edgar Hoover (FBI), gave
the orders to a CIA-led hit team, and helped guide the Warren Commission/lone
Cord Meyer: CIA
agent, architect of the Operation Mockingbird disinformation apparatus, and
husband of Mary Meyer (who had an affair with JFK).
David Atlee Philips:
CIA and Bay of Pigs veteran. Recruited William Harvey (CIA) and Cuban exile
militant Antonio Veciana.
William Harvey: CIA
and Bay of Pigs veteran. Connected to Mafia figures Santos Trafficante and Sam
Cuban exile, founder of CIA-backed Alpha 66.
Frank Sturgis: CIA
operative, mercenary, Bay of Pigs veteran, and later Watergate figure.
David Morales: CIA
hit man, Bay of Pigs veteran. Morales was also a figure involved with the
assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.
Corsican assassin and drug trafficker, possible �French gunman,� Grassy Knoll
Would Hunt continue
to tell lies on his deathbed? Perhaps. Would Hunt tell a final tall story or
two, to protect himself, or perhaps deal one final slap in the face to the US
government (which made him a fall guy for Watergate)? Yes. Would Hunt hide the
involvement of certain individuals to whom he remained loyal, including people
who are still alive? Certainly. Anything from an operative like Hunt can only
be accepted with caution and healthy skepticism.
scenario has the ring of truth.
Each of the named
names are well-known CIA and CIA-linked players exposed by many researchers and
historians who have detailed the enduring connection from the Bay of Pigs and
the Dallas hit to Watergate and Iran-Contra.
The Hunt confession
vindicates generations of historians, researchers and whistleblowers who have
given their lives and careers to expose the truth about Dealey Plaza. While
there are too many to name, they include, but are not limited to (and in no
particular order): Jim Garrison, Mark Lane, Fletcher Prouty, Josiah Thompson,
Carl Oglesby, Peter Dale Scott, Anthony Summers, Robert Groden, Victor
Marchetti, David Lifton, Harrison Livingstone, Michael Canfield, A.J. Weberman,
Sylvia Meagher, William Turner, Jim Marrs, Pete Brewton, John Newman, Philip
Melanson, Hal Verb, Mae Brussell, Harold Weisberg, Oliver Stone, Mike Ruppert
and Dan Hopsicker, Jim diEugenio and Linda Pease.
criminal deceptions of the US government and its corporate media, the Warren
Commission, and the dirty work of cover-up specialists such as Gerald Posner
and Mark Fuhrman, and the legions of JFK assassination revisionist/theorists,
deserve a final rebuke, and eternal scorn.
Highlighting Hunt�s role
Although the Rolling
Stone piece does not address it, the Hunt confession directly corroborates
two classic investigations that previously exposed the role of Hunt. They are
Mark Lane�s Plausible Denial and Michael Canfield/A.J. Weberman�s Coup
D�Etat in America. Lane�s book details how he took Hunt to court, and won a
libel suit, essentially proving that the CIA murdered JFK, and that Hunt lied
about his whereabouts. The investigation of Canfield and Weberman identified
Hunt and Frank Sturgis as two of the three �tramps� arrested at Dealey Plaza.
Time has only made
these investigations more relevant. More than ever, their books, and those of
the JFK historians and researchers above listed, deserve to be found, read and
Hunt to Nixon to Bush
The Rolling Stone
piece fails to go after the roles of Richard Nixon and George Herbert Walker
Bush. But the Hunt confession, if accurate, leads directly to them, to their
lifelong associates, and all the way to the present George W. Bush
Dallas-Watergate-Iran-Contra connection has been thoroughly documented by the
key JFK researchers, and in particular, in the work of Peter Dale Scott, one of
the very first to show the deep political continuity across three decades.
Daniel Hopsicker�s Barry and the Boys goes into even more detail on the
Consider the career
of George H.W. Bush. He was a Texas oilman (Zapata Oil) and a CIA operative,
involved with the Bay of Pigs. Bush�s name was found in the papers of George
DeMohrenschildt, one of Lee Harvey Oswald�s CIA handlers. As documented by Pete
Brewton, author of The Mafia, the CIA and George Bush, Bush was deeply
connected with a small circle of Texas elites tied to the CIA and the Mafia, as
well as the Florida-based CIA/anti-Casto Cuban exile/ Mafia milieu As Richard
Nixon�s hand-picked Republican National Committee chairman, and later as CIA
director, Bush constantly covered-up and stonewalled for his boss about
Watergate, which itself (by the admission of Frank Sturgis and others) was a
cover-up of the JFK assassination.
Tracking any of the
individual CIA operatives involved with the Bay of Pigs, it is impossible to
ignore or deny direct connections to George H.W. Bush and his crime family,
across the Kennedy assassinations, covert operations in Indochina and, later,
reasonable doubt, the US government murdered John F. Kennedy. There are people
still alive today who were involved directly and indirectly implicated. Some
are probably even serving in positions of high influence. Some still have never
been identified or touched.
All of these individuals still need to be
pursued, exposed, and brought to justice.
