"The Last Confessions of E. Howard Hunt"

The April 5, 2007 issue of Rolling Stone featured an interesting article which contained a deathbed confession of E. Howard Hunt, a noted CIA Spy and figure in the Bay of Pigs, Watergate scandal and Nixon administration. Hunt, before his death, gave this confession to his son so that the secret would not die with him. The article was by Erik Hedegaard

According to the confession, which was given over several father-son meetings, Lyndon B. Johnson gave the orders for President Kennedy to be taken out; the orders were given to a assassination squad organized by the CIA. He also supplied the names of the actual killers, which included Frank Sturgis, William Harvey, David Morales, Antonio Veciana, David Atlee Philips, Cord Meyer and Lucien Sarti.
