Once, when the old spymaster thought he was dying, his eldest son came to visit him at his home in Miami. The scourges recently had been constant and terrible: lupus, pneumonia, cancers of the jaw and prostate, gangrene, the amputation of his left leg. It was like something was eating him up. Long past were his years of heroic service to the country. In the CIA, he'd helped mastermind the violent removal of a duly elected leftist president in Guatemala and assisted in subterfuges that led to the murder of Che Guevara. But no longer could you see in him the suave, pipe-smoking, cocktail-party-loving clandestine operative whose Cold War exploits he himself had, almost obsessively, turned into novels, one of which, East of Farewell, the New York Times once called "the best sea story" of World War II. Diminished too were the old bad memories, of the Bay of Pigs debacle that derailed his CIA career for good, of the Watergate Hotel fiasco, of his first wife's death, of thirty-three months in U.S. prisons -- of, in fact, a furious lifetime mainly of failure, disappointment and pain. But his firstborn son -- he named him St. John; Saint, for short -- was by his side now. And he still had a secret or two left to share before it was all over http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/13893143/the_last_confessions_of_e_howard_hunt

I saw that video series (part 1 & 2) earlier this week. LBJ behind the assination of Kennedy...but there was a whole lot more going on that what Hunt talks about.

These two videos give you a much better idea...

Nope. This E. Howard Hunt worked for the CIA at the time of the Kennedy assasination. He spilled his guts to his son about what happened right before he died.

I am, by the way, a long time fan of Jim Marrs, who does most of the research in this second set of videos. I've read several of his books, heard him speak on countless radio interviews, and in my opinion, he is one of the most honest and careful researchers out there. I really think the world of him and consider him to be truly one of the good guys.

That was a pretty interesting article, though I don't normally read Rolling Stone, especially for political opinion.

They write and edit like they are high.
