Clint Hill also said he never heard it personally from the president himself- he heard it from Floyd Boring who, by the way, adamantly denied to me (twice on tape, once in a letter) that JFK ever ordered the agents to get off his limo--!
Boring is joined by dozens of his colleagues.
Hill came clean --slipped up?---in 2010 for his sixth floor museum oral history: "he can tell you what he wants but that doesn't mean you have to do it. What we always used to do was agree with the president then do what we felt was best anyway." It's on video and Gerald Blaine, who also adamantly denied that JFK ever ordered or asked or interfered, was right beside him!
That story is bullshit by the substance of the remark. It is technically true VIA Boring' s comment to Hill BUT, not only did Boring say what he said above, he told the ARRB in 1996 that JFK wasn't issuing an order but merely demonstrating his kindness in not wishing to have the agents strain themselves by being there when the crowds were sparse...yet they were on the back of the car for most of the 28 mile Tampa trip of 11/18/63 and, to add further insult to injury, Hill briefly rode on the rear of the limo 4 times on Main Street in Dallas---oops!!!!!! I thought JFK ordered you guys off!! CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE
He was also one of the agents who drank and stayed out late the night before. Hill is still legally married, yet he is with his much younger co-author...for her part: $$$$$
