DEBUNKS BUGLIOSI, BLAINE & THE CIA!
Wow! I was much aware that I was on several pages of Mark Lane's LAST WORD, but I had no idea (until just now) that I was also on the cover of the paperback edition-sweet! I met Mark in 1992 as a mere fan at a book signing (my only credit was a mention in HIGH TREASON 2). 20 years later, Mark sends me an unsolicited letter, wishing to use my work for his book...and the rest is history...but I had no idea about the paperback cover :)

JFK WAS PROPERLY PROTECTED BEFORE DALLAS!

New Clint Hill book: Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford

New Clint Hill book: Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin

 
"Some of his stunning, never-before-revealed anecdotes include: The torture of watching himself in the Zapruder film in Secret Service training"
 
NOT drinking the night before would have prevented the torture. Hill, Landis, Ready, Bennett and 5 other agents drank the night before.
 
This is Hill's FOURTH book (if you count THE KENNEDY DETAIL, which I do- he wrote the Foreword, contributed to the book, did the book tour, the documentary, and many media and in-person events). Cha-ching: Lisa looooooooooooves $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

JFK Assassination Medical Evidence / Vince Palamara

JFK Assassination Medical Evidence / Vince Palamara

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgirVrk5orY

POSSIBLE corroboration for LBJ/ Younglood shenanigans 11/21-11/22/63?

POSSIBLE corroboration for LBJ/ Younglood shenanigans 11/21-11/22/63?

Facebook friend David Spinelli was kind enough to alert me to several online links/ articles of interest related to the LBJ-killed-JFK scenario, including the use of a double for LBJ. As far-fetched as the "double" notion may seem at first glance, take a look at these articles:

LBJ's Double – Cousin Jay Bert Peck – And his Untimely Death by author Phil Nelson ("LBJ: From Mastermind to "The Colossus"):

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/no_author/lbjs-look-alike-cousin/

excerpt-"According to Billie Sol Estes, Johnson had Peck “stand in” for him the evening of November 21, 1963, so he could go to the Murchison party and give the final go-ahead nod for the assassination, secure in the knowledge that Peck would only make a brief appearance to throw off reporters as to his whereabouts. The reports that Johnson was seen that evening at the hotel in Ft. Worth in the main dining room and lobby could be explained by this device, considering that there were no indications that he spoke to any group or even to anyone in particular that evening. (One longtime researcher who wishes to remain anonymous and who knew Johnson’s lover Madeleine Brown said that Ms. Brown believed that Johnson had Captain James Swindal, who flew Air Force One, fly him in a small airplane to the smaller Addison Airport, which was only a mile or two from Murchison’s mansion on Preston Road in north Dallas. Other researchers are convinced that Johnson had his Secret Service agent, the sycophantic Rufus Youngblood, drive him to the Murchison home at Clint’s insistence, which would explain Johnson’s surly attitude upon his arrival there, as described by Madeleine Brown)."

NOW, FROM MY BOOK "SURVIVOR'S GUILT":

Page 264, based on Secret Service Agent Rufus Youngblood's report in Volume 18, pages 681-682: Interestingly, while others slept or were out drinking in Fort Worth, Youngblood left in the early morning hours of 11/22/63, supposedly to visit a childhood acquaintance, a detail not mentioned in his LBJ Library oral history, his book, or anywhere else since he noted it in his report.
Makes you think...

    James Norwood interview of Jack Puterbaugh

     Interview with Jack Puterbaugh (November 4, 2013)


    THE INTERVIEW TOOK PLACE ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013, AT THE WALKER PLACE, 3701 BRYANT AVENUE SOUTH, MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55409.  PRESENT FOR THE INTERVIEW WERE BARBARA DOWNHAM, JAMES NORWOOD, JACK PUTERBAUGH, AND JACK'S FRIEND, RICK ANDERSON.  THE INTERVIEW LASTED FROM APPROXIMATELY 1:10PM UNTIL 2:20PM.


    (A)  AS A CIVIL SERVICE EMPLOYEE IN THE EARLY 1960S, JACK PUTERBAUGH HELPED TO PROVIDE SECURITY FOR JOHN F. KENNEDY ON TWO VISITS TO THE STATE OF MINNESOTA IN 1960 AND 1963.  FROM THE 1960 "BEAN FEED," JACK SHOWED US A PHOTO WITH PUERBAUGH (IN GLASSES) ALONGSIDE SENATOR KENNEDY.  THE PHOTO MAY BE SEEN AS WELL ON THIS SITE: http://current.mnsun.com/2013/10/on-the-scene-of-the-jfk-assassination-it-was-chaos/  PUTERBAUGH ALSO RELATED HOW DURING THE DRIVE TO DULUTH IN 1963, PRESIDENT KENNEDY ATTEMPTED TO MAKE A THOUGHTFUL STATEMENT ABOUT THE BEAUTY OF A RURAL FARM, INADVERTENTLY SHOWING HIS IGNORANCE OF AGRARIAN LIFE IN THE MIDWEST.

    (B)  AS AN EMPLOYEE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, PUTERBAUGH WAS INVITED TO DALLAS AS AN ADVANCE MAN FOR THE PRESIDENT'S VISIT IN NOVEMBER, 1963.  HIS ROLE WAS NOT SO MUCH IN PROVIDING SECURITY TO THE PRESIDENT AS IT WAS IN ARRANGING THE GUEST LIST FOR THE LUNCHEON AT THE DALLAS TRADE MART.  HE TOLD US ABOUT A PRELIMINARY DRIVE THROUGH DEALEY PLAZA, BUT HE NEVER ONCE MENTIONED ACTUAL SECURITY OPERATIONS (CROWD CONTROL, CLOSING WINDOWS ON TALL BUILDINGS, ASSIGNMENTS OF POLICE OFFICERS).  AS HE INFORMED US, HIS MAIN TASK WAS IN THE ASSIGNING OF TICKETS FOR THE LARGE GATHERING OF 2,500.  THERE IS NOTHING TO SUGGEST THAT PUTERBAUGH HAD THE POWER TO DETERMINE THE MOTORCADE ROUTE (A TASK OF THE SECRET SERVICE) OR THE SITE OF THE LUNCHEON (THE KEY DECISION-MAKER IN SETTLING ON THE TRADE MART WAS APPARENTLY GOVERNOR JOHN CONNALLY).  PUTERBAUGH SPOKE OF THE THREE-PART FACTIONAL STRIFE IN TEXAS POLITICS AT THE TIME WITH THE CONSERVATIVE WING LED BY GOVERNOR CONNALLY, THE CENTRIST POSITION REPRESENTED BY VICE-PRESIDENT JOHNSON, AND THE LIBERALS LED BY SENATOR RALPH YARBOROUGH.

    (C)  WHEN I ASKED PUTERBAUGH WHETHER THE SCHEDULING OF THE LUNCHEON AT THE WOMEN’S BUILDING MIGHT HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN SAVING THE PRESIDENT’S LIFE, DUE TO ITS LOCATION IN A DIFFERENT PART OF DALLAS THAN THE TRADE MARE, PUTERBAUGH RESPONDED THAT HE BELIEVED THE MOTORCADE WOULD HAVE TRAVELED ALONG THE SAME ROUTE TO REACH THE WOMEN’S BUILDING.  I POINTED OUT THAT THE LOGICAL ROUTE TO THE WOMEN’S BUILDING FROM LOVE FIELD WOULD HAVE PASSED THROUGH DEALEY PLAZA FROM THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, BYPASSING THE HAIRPIN TURNS FROM MAIN TO HOUSTON AND FROM HOUSTON TO ELM.  PUTERBAUGH UNDERSCORED THAT HE WAS NOT TASKED WITH PROVIDING SECURITY TO THE PRESIDENT.  HE RECALLED THAT WHEN HE MADE A TRIAL RUN, DRIVING THROUGH DEALEY PLAZA WITH WINSTON LAWSON, PUTERBAUGH CRACKED A JOKE TO THE EFFECT THAT “THE SCHOOL BOOK DEPOSITORY MUST BE THE PLACE WHERE THEY BURN THE BOOKS DOWN HERE!”

    (D)  PUTERBAUGH WAS PRESENT AT LOVE FIELD WHEN AIR FORCE ONE LANDED IN DALLAS.  HE OBSERVED THE PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY DEBORD THE PLANE.  PUTERBAUGH THEN ENTERED THE MOTORCADE IN ONE OF OF THE LEAD CARS.

    (E)  EN ROUTE TO THE TRADE MART, PUTERBAUGH'S VEHICLE WAS WELL AHEAD OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE PILOT CAR.  BY THE TIME HE REACHED THE STEMMONS FREEWAY, HE WAS OUT OF VIEW OF DEALEY PLAZA AND NEVER WITNESSED THE SHOOTING.  HE ONLY HEARD A REPORT ON THE CAR RADIO THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS BEING RUSHED TO PARKLAND HOSPITAL.

    (F)  ALONGSIDE HIM IN THE LEAD VEHICLE WAS SS AGENT WINSTON LAWSON, AS WELL AS OTHERS WHOSE NAMES JACK COULD NOT RECALL.  THE VEHICLE PROCEEDED TO PARKLAND HOSPITAL WHERE JACK WITNESSED THE STRICKEN PRESIDENT CARRIED INTO THE TRAUMA ROOM.  PUTERBAUGH RECALLED SEEING MRS. KENNEDY AND HER PINK DRESS.  HE DID NOT RECALL ANY DETAILS OF THE WOUNDS OF THE PRESIDENT AND COULD NOT PROVIDE A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE LIMOUSINE, OTHER THAN THE REPLACEMENT OF THE SIDING AND THE ROOF, WHICH HE CALLED "THE BUBBLE TOP."

    (G)  UPON LEARNING OF THE DEATH OF THE PRESIDENT, PUTERBAUGH RETURNED TO HIS HOTEL (THE DOWNTOWN SHERATON).  EN ROUTE TO THE HOTEL, HE PASSED THROUGH DEALEY PLAZA AND OBSERVED THE "COMPLETE CHAOS" OF PEOPLE MILLING ABOUT IN NEARLY EVERY DIRECTION.  WHEN I ASKED HIM IF HE OBSERVED ANY ATTEMPTS OF THE DALLAS POLICE TO CORDON OFF THE CRIME SCENE, HE SAID THAT HE SAW NO ROPES OR TAPE IN THE AREA OF THE STREET, PLAZA, OR BUILDINGS.

    (H)  PUTERBAUGH LEFT DALLAS IMMEDIATELY BY PLANE FOR WASHINGTON, D.C.  WHEN I ASKED HIM IF HE HEARD ANY "GOSSIP" IN THE IMMEDIATE AFTERMATH, HE REPLIED THAT HE DID NOT.

    (I)  WHILE NEVER CALLED BY THE WARREN COMMISSION, PUTERBAUGH DID TESTIFY FOR THE HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE ON ASSASSINATIONS (HSCA) IN THE LATE 1970S.  BY THIS TIME, HE WAS BACK IN MINNESOTA.  IN THE HSCA INTERVIEW, THE QUESTIONS WERE VERY GENERAL AND JACK COULD NOT RECALL SPECIFIC DETAILS FROM THE BRIEF INTERVIEW.

    (J)  PUTERBAUGH STRONGLY BELIEVES THAT THE JFK ASSASSINATION WAS A TURNING POINT IN OUR NATION'S HISTORY.  HE CITES THE LONG STRING OF PRESIDENTS THAT HAVE FAILED TO RISE TO THE LEVEL OF IDEALISM OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY.  FOR PUTERBAUGH, THE LONE EXCEPTION WAS PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER.

    As agent John Norris explained in Bill Sloan’s book J.F.K.: Breaking the Silence and in an interview for Vincent Michael Palamara’s book Survivor’s Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy: “Except for George Hickey and Clint Hill, [many of the others] just basically sat there with their thumbs up their butts while the president was gunned down in front of them.” [although Hill was one of the drinkers who went on to profit from the death of JFK]

    We let JFK get his head blown off, but...here's a painting of what he looked like in life before we let him get killed.

    Speechless.

    From Facebook:
    CAPE COD ARTIST COMMISSIONED BY RETIRED WHITE HOUSE DETAIL AGENTS, GERALD BLAINE AND CLINT HILL
    TO CREATE THE OFFICIAL PORTRAIT OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
    Artist Mark Alvin formerly of Hyannis Ma, now residing in Orleans Ma, was commissioned to create this painting of President John F. Kennedy, on behalf of the surviving Kennedy Detail Agents.
    ...
    The painting was presented to the Director of the Secret Service, Joe Clancy, in Washington, DC in time for the retired agent’s reunion and celebration of the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Secret Service, by President Lincoln.

    Secret Service Agent John "Jack" Joseph Giuffre

     
    RARE SECRET SERVICE REPORTS MENTIONING GIUFFRE- CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE!








     
    Jack Giuffre is mentioned in these two books:

     
    2000 article quoting Giuffre:
     
     
     
     
     
    messages from Giuffre's cousin:
    Vince,
     
    Jack Joseph Giuffre was my mom's 1st cousin.  He grew up in the Bronx and we did not know him well growing up in Indiana where his mom's side of the family was from.  I was looking for his phone number today when I saw that you had mentioned him.  He carried a little snub nose .38 back in the early 60's and that was what reminded me of him.  He knew details and I got the feeling that there was more to it than he could say.  He came to my grandpa's funeral in 1975.  I always admired him and got a degree in Criminal Justice in 1986, the same as he did back in the 50's.  He was an FBI agent too.  I will send you a check for your book.  I am really surprised that you could find his name (public information).  He once told me a story about how JFK dove into the ocean off of his boat in the Keys and Jack had to jump in with all of his cloths on and swim beside the president.  No one could have stopped the shot to JFK but I know Jack would have done his best to save him if he had been there that day.
     
    November 3, 2015

     

    Dear Vince Palamara,

     

    You are obviously a great researcher to find out so much information about the Secret Service agents during the Kennedy administration.  My cousin was in fact one of those agents.  He was my childhood hero (I was born in 1957) and his name was John (Jack) Giuffre.  He personally guarded JFK on numerous ocassions.  He is still alive and living in Sarasota Florida.  He is now 81 years old and was part of the investigating team into JFK's death.  I doubt very seriously if he will talk about it and will probably take his knowledge to the grave with him.  He was not there in Dallas on Nov. 22nd.  He was chief of the Chicago office for a long time.  I was trying to find his phone number when I ran across your web site.  I would like to have a copy of your book,  SURVIVOR'S GUILT: THE SECRET SERVICE AND THE FAILURE TO PROTECT PRESIDENT KENNEDY.

    “The facts as outlined would sustain a charge of gross negligence without the possibility of refutation from any source . . . a great book.”Secret Service Agent Abraham Bolden on Survivor's Guilt


    “The most accurate, detailed, and factual report on the John F. Kennedy assassination ever.” Secret Service Agent John Carman on Survivor’s Guilt

    From the Author

    This book tackles every possible angle of the medical evidence in the Kennedy murder mystery and does not merely "cherry pick" only certain handfuls of sources as other books have a tendency to do. This book is all-encompassing and exhaustive in its detailed look at the most important evidence in the JFK assassination. The reader will take away three important factors when reading this book: 1. They will learn many fascinating specific details regarding the JFK assassination medical evidence.
    2. Evidence of conspiracy and cover-up in the Kennedy murder case will leap out from the many entries from primary witnesses who were there, not merely "theorists" or authors with an agenda.
    3. They will have a unique, all-in-one-place study guide/ road map/ GPS through the massive mountain of sources regarding the biggest crime of the 20th century.

    For all intents and purposes, nearly every prior book on the Kennedy case, either for or against the notion of conspiracy and cover-up, has always come from either a primary witness or an author with an agenda or "theory". This massive work takes a neutral look at the case by providing a much-needed "everything-but-the-kitchen-sink", "no-stone-unturned", all inclusive look at the most important avenue of the crime: the medical evidence. In the process, the author has uncovered much new and overlooked materials, based on years of research and contacting many primary witnesses, as the author did with his first book, as well. Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy is the ultimate book on the Secret Service. JFK-From Parkland to Bethesda: The Ultimate Kennedy Assassination Compendium is the ultimate book on the medical evidence.

    From the Inside Flap

    I first began working on this book in July 1998, shortly after a fire at my home, as a means to distract myself in a pleasant way as the fire restoration workers completed their tasks. The project soon took on a life of its own as what was once just a passionate hobby became an obsession, with the goal of compiling every known (and unknown/ overlooked) medical evidence related bit of testimony, statements, and excerpts I could find.
    Starting merely with a wish to make sense of the disjointed 26 volumes of the Warren Commission I owned at the time (rare books I later sold and which are now available, scanned and free to the world, online), I soon began to have a dream of clarifying and compiling the work of the HSCA, the then just-ended work of the ARRB, all the countless books written on the case, etc.
    In short order, the book became a labor of love and, although somewhat secondary to my pet project of Secret Service studies, evolved into an important work on its own terms.


    From the Back Cover

    NO OTHER BOOK has ever compiled virtually every known statement or revelation related to the JFK assassination medical evidence.
    After 50-plus years, there CAN be fresh revelations and discoveries in the JFK assassination murder mystery and this book is the ultimate place to start!

    Oswald did it...and JFK helped, too? MY 2010 AMAZON REVIEW OF "THE KENNEDY DETAIL"

    Oswald did it...and JFK helped, too?


    As the leading civilian authority on the Secret Service, especially regarding the JFK/ LBJ era, and as someone who interviewed and/ or corresponded with close to 80 former agents between 1990-2006 (roughly double the number of former agents interviewed for this book), I was, needless to say, very much interested in what former agent and author Gerald Blaine (a nice gentleman I spoke to twice and corresponded with several times via e-mail), along with co-author Lisa McCubbin and fellow former agent Clint Hill (a very close friend of Blaine's to whom I had sent a 22-page letter to and spoke to very briefly and who also wrote the Foreword), had to say about President Kennedy and the tragic events of November 22, 1963, when the Secret Service failed in the worst way, costing the nation the life of our President. As a total stranger and an outsider, my contacts with the former agents were very much in the "cross examination" mode (often eliciting begrudging, not-too-friendly responses), while, as a trusted insider, it is fair to say that Blaine's contacts would be of the "direct/ friendly examination" variety. This dichotomy will become important for a number of reasons.

    I am as certain as a human being can be that it was my lengthy letter to Clint Hill that led to the genesis of this book----I sent it in June of 2005 and received a very cantankerous "non-reply" when I phoned the gentleman this same time period. Also, during this very same time period, as Blaine admitted to the Daily Sentinel's Bob Silbernagel for his 5/23/10 article, Blaine began contacting as many living former agents who served President Kennedy for his book as he could (it is important to note that I also made contacts with Mr. Blaine during this time period, as well). Why am I so certain that my letter was a catalyst? As an ardent critic of the Secret Service's performance in Dallas (going much further than the two government "investigations", the Warren Commission and the HSCA), I sent Mr. Hill, in effect, a "Cliff Notes" version of my research for my own book ("Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect The President"), spelling out why I came to be certain that fellow former agents Floyd Boring (the number two agent on the Kennedy Detail and the Secret Service planner of the Texas trip), Shift Leader Emory Roberts (the commander of the agents in the follow-up car in Dallas), and William Greer (the driver of JFK's limousine on 11/22/63) were grossly negligent before, during, and after JFK was assassinated. Judging by Mr. Hill's "response" (or lack thereof), my attempt to address my concerns did not go over very well, to put it mildly.

    As it bears directly on "The Kennedy Detail" , just what specifically are my concerns? Simply put: many of these former agents (and several White House aides), including several who passed away years before this book was even a thought, such as the number one agent on the Kennedy Detail, Gerald Behn; one of the three Shift Leaders, Arthur Godfrey; the number two agent on LBJ's detail (who ALSO had protected JFK), Rufus Youngblood; Sam Kinney, the driver of the follow-up car in Dallas; Robert Bouck, the Special-Agent-In-Charge of the Protective Research Section; Frank Stoner of the Protective Research Section; Maurice Martineau, the Acting-Special- Agent- In- Charge of the Chicago Office who protected JFK from '61-'63 whenever he came to the area; John Norris of the Uniformed Division; Dave Powers, the former curator of the JFK Library who rode in the follow-up car many times, including on 11/22/63; author Helen O'Donnell, daughter of the late Ken O'Donnell, JFK's Chief of Staff (based on her memory and her father's many audio tapes); and many others, told me, in no uncertain terms, that President Kennedy was a very nice man, NEVER interfered with the actions of the Secret Service, and, most importantly, DID NOT ORDER THE AGENTS OFF HIS CAR (nor did O'Donnell, as verified by the aforementioned Helen O'Donnell, Art Godfrey, and Sam Kinney and, by extension, Dave Powers)! With regard to the Tampa, FL trip of 11/18/63, not only do many existing films and photos all along the long motorcade route depict agents on the rear of JFK's car, Congressman Sam Gibbons, who RODE IN THE CAR WITH JFK, told me that he heard no such order from JFK for the agents to be removed in the first place AND that the agents rode the rear bumper all the way. Surprisingly, the number two agent, Floyd Boring (who passed away 2/1/08 and to whom I spoke to twice and corresponded with once), told me the same thing: namely, that the "Get-The-Ivy-League-Charlatans-Off-The-Limo" tale (first told by the late author William Manchester, who had interviewed Gerald Blaine, Clint Hill, and Emory Roberts, but not Boring) is false---Boring never said that to him, never spoke to Manchester in any case, the tale is not true, and that, once again, JFK was a very nice man, very cooperative with the Secret Service, and never interfered with their actions at all! Agents of the Kennedy Detail who conveyed similar knowledge to myself---that JFK never interfered with their actions--- were Walt Coughlin, Winston Lawson (the lead advance agent for Dallas), Don Lawton (who rode on the rear of the car 11/18/63), Abe Bolden, Robert Lilley, Frank Yeager, Gerald O'Rourke, Sam Sulliman, Vince Mroz (now deceased), Larry Newman, and, quite surprisingly, Gerald Blaine himself, a little over a year before he began writing his book!

    Although very well written, along with some nice photographs, as well, "The Kennedy Detail" is really a thinly veiled attempt to rewrite history (a la Gerald Posner and Vince Bugliosi, who believe 11/22/63 was the act of a single lone man) and absolve the agents of their collective survivor's guilt (and to counter the prolific writings of a certain reviewer). In the eyes of those from "The Kennedy Detail", the assassination was the act of TWO "lone men": Oswald, who pulled the trigger, and JFK, who set himself up as the target. Simply put: President Kennedy WAS indeed a very nice man, did not interfere with the actions of the Secret Service, did not order the agents off his limousine (in Tampa, in Dallas, or elsewhere), and did not have his staff convey any anti-security sentiments, either. The sheer force and power of what these men all told me, a complete stranger, in correspondence and on the phone, is all the more strong because, not only did they have a vested interest to protect themselves, the vast majority believe that Oswald acted alone and that all official "stories" are correct. Floyd Boring, as agency planner of the fateful trip, in spite of what he forcefully stated to me, did indeed convey the exaggerated---some would say false--notion that JFK had asked that the agents remove themselves from the car 4 short days before Dallas, taking it upon himself to tell several Dallas agents, depending on who you choose to believe, either as an "anecdote" of alleged presidential kindness and consideration in not wanting to have the agents "over exert" themselves (what Boring told the ARRB's Doug Horne in 1996) or a strict "presidential admonition" to stay off the car (as Clint Hill conveyed to the Warren Commission's Arlen Specter, under oath, in 1964). In addition, the motorcycle escort was reduced to (as the HSCA put it) a "uniquely insecure" smaller formation for Dallas, allegedly because, as Boring told the ARRB (and as Win Lawson, assigned to the Dallas trip by Boring [and who would have been merely following orders], told the Warren Commission under oath), JFK allegedly didn't like alot of noise from motorcycles, although he had no problem in countless prior motorcades, including that very same morning in Fort Worth and the day before in San Antonio and Houston. Emory Roberts ordered an agent back from JFK's limo at Love Field (as this reviewer discovered back in 1991 and had popularized for the first time back in 1995 and, again, in 2003 on The History Channel, long before this clip became something of an internet sensation), recalled an agent during the shooting and, as Sam Kinney told me, ordered the men on the follow-up car not to move! For his part, Bill Greer slowed the President's car down during the shooting, twice looked back at JFK, and disobeyed Roy Kellerman's order to get out line (and denied all of this to the Warren Commission). Coupled with several---many?---of the agent's stated anger about JFK's private life (as stated to author Seymour Hersh, among others), these actions, inactions, and feelings are cause for concern.

    That said, the vast majority of these men (Blaine included) are honorable former government employees that were merely following orders on that fateful day in Dallas. In light of the work of this reviewer, future pensions, professional and personal reputations, and so forth, "The Kennedy Detail" makes perfect sense. After the reviewer's letter to Clint Hill, it truly WAS "a book that HAD to be written".

    Understanding Hollywood-Style Presidential Propaganda From JFK To Trump

    http://www.justice-integrity.org/faq/880-understanding-hollywood-style-presidential-propaganda-from-jfk-to-trump


    The portrayal of Secret Service officer George Hickey as killing Kennedy stemmed originally from 1970s research by Howard Donahue, a former high school friend of future Secret Service crew chief Emory Roberts.
    Roberts, as it turned out, made many unexplained and indeed suspicious decisions in advance of JFK's killing. Roberts ordered removal of the agents standing on the presidential limo rear platform as part of  the standard protection against snipers during a motorcade.
    Also, the Roberts detail's seven members including four who had been binge drinking the evening before the motorcade, some until the wee hours of Nov. 22. That drinking grossly violated rules requiring sobriety on such an assignment, especially in guarding the president in a city that included ultra-right haters of the president. Indeed, Kennedy had forced the resignation of the CIA's three top leaders, including Gen. Charles Cabell, the brother of Dallas mayor Earle Cabell.
    Thus Roberts and his superiors extending up to the new president, Lyndon Johnson, and their institutional successors all had a motive to put in motion disinformation that would scapegoat the hapless retired agent George Hickey, especially after congressional committees began in the 1970s to reexamine the truth of the Warren Commission report and cover-up.

    Secret Service Agents Tell Their Tales

    This next section comes from Vincent M. Palamara, who interviewed more than 70 of the Secret Service's 300 or so agents during the JFK era for his authoritative 2013 book Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy. Palamara reported:
    Special agent Sam Kinney decided to forego use of a protective "bubble top" in Dallas, not the President Kennedy or his staff as widely claimed by Secret Service defenders seeking to blame the president for his own death. Nonetheless, Palamara portrays Kinney as one of the "good guys" performing his job as best he could under the circumstances.
    However, supervisory Emory Roberts forced agent Donald Lawton and "more than likely" agent Henry Rybka at Love Field in Dallas to step off their customary post riding a rear platform of the presidential limousine to use their bodies for protection.
    A video widely seen on YouTube of that order has puzzled many viewers through the decades. Roberts can be seen standing up from a front seat perch in the limo following the president and issuing an order.  Lawson, at the lower right, is obviously puzzled and frustrated regarding why he was not being permitted to protect the president. Just one version of that three-minute YouTube clip has attracted five million viewers as of this writing. Its first frame is fuzzy but the rest is reasonably clear, given the technology of the era:

    Here is my Amazon review:
    MORE WHITEWASH that is free online; do not waste your money! By Vince Palamara on August 4, 2015
    The Kennedy Detail Secret Service agents should be ashamed of themselves- they put out books for massive profits while peddling the blatant lie that President Kennedy ordered them off the limousine, with the direct connotation that this false order was the reason they failed miserably in Dallas (never mind the fact that they limited the motorcycle formation, did not guard building rooftops like they did 11/18/63 and for years before the assassination [FDR-JFK], took the bubbletop off the limo, failed to properly advance such a dangerous location as Dealey Plaza certainly was, etc.).
    This is Commission Document Number 3 [CD3] and is free online. The product information is priceless: "Historical report on the JFK assassination. Never before seen evidence of Secret Service blunders that would ultimately transform the agency into one of the nations' elitist law enforcement entitites."
