E. Howard Hunt, most famous for his conviction for his role in the Watergate break in as one of Nixon’s “plumbers”, will reportedly be releasing a book in April wherein he suggests that LBJ had a hand in the assassination of President Kennedy.
As reported by the New York Post, Hunt writes in his book:
“LBJ had the money and the connections to manipulate the scenario in Dallas and is on record as having convinced JFK to make the appearance in the first place,” Hunt writes, according to the tabloid. “He further tried unsuccessfully to engineer the passengers of each vehicle, trying to get his good buddy, Gov. [John] Connolly, to ride with him instead of in JFK’s car – where…he would have been out of danger.”
Given the pervasive and systemic corruption of the USA political system almost nothing would surprise me relative to the Kennedy assassination, or any other nefarious historical event for that matter; but I think it is far more likely that CIA agent Hunt and his band of UCLAs (unilaterally controlled Latino assets), mostly expatriate Cubans, were responsible for Kennedy’s assassination. Hunt, in my opinion, was, during his CIA career, a completely amoral ideologue who would stop at nothing to restore the Cuban oligarchs defeated by the Cuban revolution.
The National Security Archive (NSA), at George Washington University in D.C., reported in November, 2003, of a tape recorded conversation between President Kennedy and his National Security Adviser McGeorge Bundy, seventeen days before the assassination, wherein reapproachment with Cuba was discussed. The NSA reported “Proposals from Bundy’s office in the spring of 1963 called for pursuing ‘the sweet approach…enticing Castro over to us,’ as a potentially more successful policy than CIA covert efforts to overthrow his regime. Top Secret White House memos record Kennedy’s position that ‘we should start thinking along more flexible lines’ and that ‘the president, himself, is very interested in [the prospect for negotiations].'”
The discussions of reapproachment followed suggestions by Fidel Castro of his interest in reappraochment. As reported by the NSA, “In a May 1963 ABC News special on Cuba, Castro told correspondent Lisa Howard that he considered a rapprochement with Washington ‘possible if the United States government wishes it. In that case,’ he said, ‘we would be agreed to seek and find a basis’ for improved relations.” Additionally, Castro had invited “William Attwood, a deputy to UN Ambassador Adlai Stevenson, to come to Cuba for secret talks.”
The Kennedy administration’s efforts at reapproachement certainly were known by those in the CIA, where Hunt was employed after serving during WW II in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Hunt established the first CIA station in Mexico City where he worked closely with the Samozas in Nicaragua and participated in the deposition of the democratically elected president of Guatemala, Jacobo Arbenz.
Hunt visited Cuba in 1959 and decided that Castro had to go, later writing, “I wrote a top secret report, and I had five recommendations, one of which was the one that’s always been thrown at me, is that during… or… slightly antecedent to an invasion, Castro would have to be neutralized – and we all know what that meant, although I didn’t want to say so in a memorandum with my name on it.”
Hunt was deeply involved in the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, overseeing the recruitment and training invasion force, composed mostly of Cuban expatriates, amongst whom included the likes of Frank Sturgis and other future Watergate burglars. Both Hunt and Sturgis were considered by the Rockefeller Commission and a Congressional investigative committee to be suspects in the Kennedy assassination. Both were reportedly in Dallas the day of the assassination, with some reporting that they were dressed as tramps.
I think Hunt knows exactly who killed Kennedy and suspect it was Hunt’s merry band of CIA employed UCLAs intent upon preventing a reapproachment with Cuba and to redress their grievance at Kennedy’s failure to provide air support to the Bay of Pigs invasion. LBJ may have been involved. I think George Bush Sr., also involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion, and Richard Nixon were mostly likely involved.
