On the deathbed contortions of Howard Hunt


This is an edited version of Howard Hunt’s much-touted “deathbed confession” about the assassination of JFK.

Hunt insinuates, without supporting evidence, that certain CIA officers and Lyndon Johnson were involved in the killing of President Kennedy.

On the one hand, Hunt, ringleader of the Watergate burglars, knew the underbelly of American power as well as anyone. What he says about November 22 is provocative, and not implausible.

On the other hand… Read more

Those of us who comb through the CIA’s records about Lee Harvey Oswald’s time in Mexico City are frustrated that there is no easy way to find many of the key cables between Mexico City and Headquarters, or between JMWAVE in Miami and Headquarters.

In Miami, a muted response to historic change in Cuba policy

The Washington Post‘s Joel Achenbach reports from south Florida, Obama’s opening to Cuba has provoked little outrage in what was once a bastion of anti-Castroism.

“The biggest change in U.S. policy toward Cuba in half a century, an historic rapprochement — the end of the Cold War! — has not yet incited organized outrage at the level where people start pouring onto Calle Ocho. Something has changed here over the years — and the decades.”

How the FBI thwarted one agent’s JFK investigation

Joseph Milteer said JFK would be shot

There’s more to the heroic story of FBI agent, Don Adams, whose recent death was reported in JFK Facts by BIll Hogan. Hogan reported that Adams had broken ranks with the Bureau to say that the investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy was compromised.

“I have learned that crucial evidence was withheld from me as an agent investigating a planned assassination of the president, just weeks before it actually took place,” Adams wrote in his book From an Office Building with a High-Powered Rifle( Trine Day, 2012),
Now you can review the evidence Adams was denied: a chiling tape recording made a couple of weeks before Kennedy was killed and a tape transcript, both of which authorities ignored when investigating JFK’s assassination.

November 11, 1963: a right-wing racist talked about how JFK would be shot

“13 days before that dark day in Dallas, Somersett elicited a chilling, police tape-recorded threat from a right-wing racist who talked of how the President would soon be shot ‘from an office building with a high-powered rifle’ and how ‘they’ll pick up somebody within hours after … just to throw the public off.’”
