E. Howard Hunt speaks, but just barely

Slate published a most interesting interview a few days ago with E. Howard Hunt, of Watergate and Kennedy assassination fame.

An interesting blog, Rigorous Institution, posted a little write-up filling in many of the missing pieces.

A tenuous link that continues to get stronger with additional file releases is the company Freeport Sulphur, now Freeport McMoRan, which tied together high-level Kennedy enemies with David Atlee Phillips and Clay Shaw, the man Jim Garrison prosecuted for involvement in the conspiracy to assassinate John Kennedy.

I frequently hear people say "we'll never know the truth." But I'm telling you, much of the truth is already known. If you read enough, you will sort the wheat from the chaff, or at least figure out who you trust to sort the wheat from the chaff for you. A good start would be the book another researcher and I put together - The Assassinations, which summarizes much of the newest evidence in the various assassinations of the sixties and lets readers put the facts together for themselves.

The truth is all around. We just have to keep paying attention.
