OK folks. I know from the statcounter I’ve got on this blog that there are some visitors every day, from all over. So here’s an experiment I’d suggest you conduct (OK it’s not an experiment in the true sense, i.e. with a control group) -- ask people you run into these three questions: (1) “Have you ever heard of E. Howard Hunt?” If not, they might read his Wikipedia entry – he was a longtime CIA operative who participated in the Bay of Pigs invasion, among other historically important episodes, most famously the Watergate break-in. OK, now ask, (2) “had you heard that Hunt, on his deathbed in january 2007, gave his son (Saint John Hunt) a taped confession in which he says he was in on the JFK assassination, and names his co-conspirators?” Go ahead, Google it. Visit his son’s website. Now, the final question, (3) “isn’t it kind of mind-blowing that no mainstream media found this story interesting enough to look into?” what does that tell us? I mean, it’s his son who’s saying this, fer crissake. And he has audiotapes. Unless he’s fabricating it, it means that we now know the answer to the riddle of the “crime of the century”, JFK’s assassination. Yet no one in the mainstream/corporate media gave the story the time of day. I mean, even if you're convinced his son is a charlatan, isn't this kind of, uh, interesting? What’s wrong with this picture?
