Thanks for the ping! Hunt--a fiction writer when he was not a CIA agent--would be a more credible witness if he had ever come clean about Watergate before he died, which he didn't. My initial reaction is to suspect his scenario is more fiction constructed to sound plausible. The plausibility begins to break down in the details. Why would Sturgis--an associate of Tampa Mafia boss Santo Trafficante, Jr.--let Hunt live with knowledge of a plot against JFK, if Sturgis had really unsuccessfully tried to bring Hunt into a plot as claimed? Hunt's scenario implicating Cord Meyer is also difficult to reconcile with that attributed to Meyer on his own deathbed:

Cord Meyer

In February, 2001, the writer, C. David Heymann, asked Cord Meyer about the death of Mary Pinchot Meyer: "My father died of a heart attack the same year Mary was killed , " he whispered. "It was a bad time." And what could he say about Mary Meyer? Who had committed such a heinous crime? "The same sons of bitches," he hissed, "that killed John F. Kennedy."

Cord Meyer died of lymphoma on 13th March, 2001.

Well he didn't explain his own involvment, did he. I mean he said "so and so is a crackpot" but then the start of the article is that Saint doesn't remember his dad being there when Kennedy was shot and thinks it's his dad in the 'three tramps' picture.

So maybe he said "no", but eventually came around to helping. That's what the story in total seems to imply.
