The CIA never forgave JFK for withdrawing air support at the Bay of Pigs. Infamous for his role in Watergate, Howard Hunt's 'confession' fails to mention G.H.W. Bush's role in the murder of JFK. In every other respect he pulled no punches in what Rolling Stone headlined: the Confessions of E. Howard Hunt.
Hunt named Lyndon B. Johnson whose own career had been assisted by JFK nemesis J. Edgar Hoover. According to Hunt, it was the FBI that ordered the CIA hit-team to snuff JFK. Later, they helped engineer the absurd cover story and cover up! The Warren Commission was a fraud and I suspect that you and I knew that at the time.
Hunt named other 'conspirators':
- 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 Vecian
- William Harvey: CIA and Bay of Pigs veteran. Connected to Mafia figures Santos Trafficante and Sam Giancana.
- Antonio Veciana: 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.
- Lucien Sarti: Corsican assassin and drug trafficker, possible "French gunman," Grassy Knoll (second) shooter.
"...the 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 administration"As for the Senior Bush --I met/interviewed him in West TX as he was seeking a U.S. Senate seat. The occasion was a Bush Sr 'news conference' held in a conference room at the Odessa-Midland Air Terminal.
Over the years I met him several times in Houston to include a one-on-one in the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt-Regency in downtown Houston. I have regretted that while I asked him about the deals that had been cut with China when he was 'special' envoy to China, I left without the 'smoking gun' that might help us understand how, subsequently, China came to top the CIA's list with the world's largest POSITIVE Current Account Balance while the U.S. has dropped to dead last on the list with the world's largest NEGATIVE Current Account Balance.
And --about that famous photo of a slouching man 'hanging around' outside the front entrance of the Texas School Book Depository --I might have asked him point blank: is that you?
Had I done so, I might have wound up on a hit list.
The photo to which I refer is the one of Bush Sr 'hanging around' the front entrance to TSBD just prior to the murder of JFK. I believe it is George H. W. Bush --the distinctive receding hair line, his characteristic slouch, the profile. It's Bush Sr! I don't think he was there just to see a parade.
Meantime, E. Howard's confession links almost all the 'tramps' photographed as they had been arrested hanging around the train tracks just west of the TSBD. That particular photo dates to a time just prior (perhaps a week or so) to the JFK hit. E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis are easily identified in the photo.
I met a witness to the JFK assassination. Her name is Rosemary Willis. If you look at the Zapruder film, she is the little girl in the red dress who appeared to be trying to keep pace with the motorcade. She showed me high quality 35mm slides that her father had taken. She had just reclaimed the slides after they had been for years in the possession of the FBI which seized them shortly after LOOK magazine had published some of them, most notably a shot of the grassy knoll looking west. Look made it a TWO PAGE DOUBLE SPREAD. Through the columns in the pergola was clearly seen a TRAIN with box cars.
THEN --Rosemary put the newly re-acquired ORIGINAL SLIDE on the light table. And there was NO TRAIN on the tracks seen through the Pergola. Simply ---the 'train' had been RE-TOUCHED OUT of the slide when it had been in FBI possession.
There is only one reason the FBI would re-touch a photo in such an Orwellian manner. They wanted to erase all 'original' proof of the train! Why? Simply because the TRAIN is the missing piece in Hunt's confession. The box-cars were a staging area for Frank Sturgis and even E. Howard Hunt himself. While a box car was providing cover for the murderer(s), Bush Sr was photographed pensively hanging around the front entrance of the TSBD waiting to make sure that his 'team' got the job done. It did!
And, eventually, Bush would become director of the CIA. And --even worse --'President'. The lesson: crime, murder and high treason has its 'rewards'.
Bush at the TSBD on the Day JFK was Murdered; Did Bush confess to killing JFK?
