Was E. Howard Hunt in Dallas the Day JFK was Killed? -- Hunt Won't Say
In an Oct. 6, 2004 interview with the online magazine Slate, Hunt refused to answer whether he was in Dallas on the day that John F. Kennedy was assassinated:
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.
