Williams has said that both McCord and Hunt became his CIA “handlers” that year. The Fish Is Red, a history of the exile movement, reported that “Hunt became Williams’s link to the Langley headquarters, while McCord liaisoned with brigade veterans at Fort Jackson.” Tad Szulc’s biography of Hunt (Compulsive Spy) described how Hunt and McCord each played a role in “Second Naval Guerrilla,” another name for the proposed Cuban invasion in 1963. Ruiz-Williams recalled, “Both of them said to call [them] Don Eduardo. Both Hunt and McCord.” That was a pattern, as Secret Agenda pointed out, that would repeat itself during Watergate, when “McCord would be arrested and booked under a Hunt alias, ‘Edward Martin,’ producing a phony ID on which the birthdate was identical with Howard Hunt’s own.” McCord’s phony ID, issued by the CIA to Hunt, disappeared immediately after McCord got fingerprinted by Washington police. 14 Sturgis on break-in: True magazine, August 1974, p. 74. 15 McCord fire and CIA contract agent: A former official with the FBI, Lee Pennington was also a director of the ultraconservative American Security Council. 16 Nixon on Hunt as “double agent”: Memoirs, by Richard Nixon, Grossett & Dunlap, N.Y., 1978, pp. 643-44. 17 Nixon on Hunt “scab”: www.ajweberman.com/tape.htm (New Nixon Tapes). 18 Los Angeles Star on Boggs: November 22, 1973. 19 Gray and Hunt files: “Dirty Politics—Nixon, Watergate, and the JFK Assassination,” http://mtracy9.tripod.com/kennedy.html. 20 FBI memo about Ford informing on Warren Commission: Written to Hoover from Cartha “Deke” DeLoach, disclosed in 1991 by the Washington Post. 21 FBI probing Hunt’s residence: Author Tad Szulc.
