E. Howard Hunt 

Slate has an interview with former CIA-Watergate figure E. Howard Hunt, who was involved in most of the major CIA events in the 50's-60's, including the Guatemala Coup, Bay of Pigs and the Hunting of Che Guevera. An interesting thing happens when the discussion turns to the JFK assassination

Slate: I know there is a conspiracy theory saying that David Atlee Phillips—the Miami CIA station chief—was involved with the assassination of JFK.

Hunt: [Visibly uncomfortable] I have no comment.

Slate: I know you hired him early on, to work with you in Mexico, to help with Guatemala propaganda.

Hunt: He was one of the best briefers I ever saw.

Slate: And there were even conspiracy theories about you being in Dallas the day JFK was killed.

Hunt: No comment.

Laura Hunt: Howard says he wasn't, and I believe him.

That's hardly a denial that he was in Dallas that day. In fact, could Hunt have been one of the three well-dressed tramps pulled off a train that day? More specifically, the third one? We know he was angry with the Kennedy Administration for botching the Bay of Pigs, and obviously, Hunt was involved with the Cuban Exiles.

Someone call Oliver Stone...
