Anne Goodpasture was a career CIA officer who served in 1963 as the top aide to Winston Scott, the longtime chief of the agency's station in Mexico City. She also worked closely with David Phillips.
When the CIA's photo and audio surveillance monitors picked up on the curious actions of a man identifying himself as "Lee Oswald" in September and October 1963, the reports were sent to Goodpasture. Thus Goodpasture became acquainted with Oswald's political views, personal history and contacts seven weeks before JFK was killed.
When first questioned by JFK investigators in the 1970s, Goodpasture denied that the Mexico City station had tapes of Oswald's phone calls. She later changed her story and admitted, under oath, her role in disseminating the tapes after the assassination .
According to the National Archives online JFK data base , the CIA has a 286-page file of Goodpasture's operational activities that has never been made public.

E. Howard Hunt by www.jfkfacts.org
E. Howard Hunt was a career CIA officer known for his prolific prose and conservative politics. In 1961, he was a leader of the CIA's failed effort to invade Cuba at the Bay of Pigs. Embittered by what he regarded as JFK's failure to support the invasion, Hunt wrote a book "Give Us This Day," which castigated JFK's Cuba policy as "shame-faced."
In 1963 he worked at CIA headquarters in Washington. He was close to David Phillips.
Hunt became famous in 1972 when he was arrested for running a burglary team breaking into the offices of the Democratic Party in the Watergate office complex in Washington. Hunt and the burglars were paid and apparently directed by President Richard Nixon and his aides. In the resulting scandal, Hunt all but blackmailed the CIA by threatening to talk in court about what he described as "numerous highly Illegal conspiracies" in which he had participated.
Later in life Hunt made cryptic remarks about a possible CIA plot to kill JFK in 1963 that he called "the Big Event." Hunt's comments can be seen and heard on YouTube , Hunt was convicted burglar and a scoundrel so his testimony has to be handled with care.
Was Hunt involved in a JFK conspiracy?
The question cannot be answered definitively because the CIA retains six files containing 332 pages of material on Hunt, according to the National Archives' online JFK data base.
