With all due respect, Mr. Palamara, your 22-page letter had absolutely nothing to do with either of these books. I am the co-author of both books, and I know exactly how everything developed. To insert yourself into the equation is erroneous and arrogant. Please discontinue from spreading this notion. Thanks. [my response below-VMP]

“Thanks” yourself haha! With all due respect (and I DO really like your book with Clint Hill), I know the REAL story: Clint Hill received my 22-page letter; Hill and Jerry are very good (best?) friends; Jerry *quoted* from the letter when I called him a few days later; Jerry had 0.0 notion of writing a book until that event: reading how many of his colleagues said JFK did NOT order the agents off his limousine; Jerry’s attorney sent me a letter (ahem…); Jerry and Clint talked about me on C-SPAN, including showing a video of mine; Clint again spoke of me on C-SPAN; I am on pages 359-360 of Blaine’s book; and former agent Larry Newman told me some things confirming my statements. I had 0.0 to do with the writing of either book (of course!)…but I am firmly convinced my letter prompted Blaine into action. Vince Palamara: SAIC Behn, ASAIC Boring, ATSAIC Godfrey, and many other agents told me, in writing+, that JFK never interfered with their actions, nor did he order the agents off his limo. ALSO: several prominent White House staffers told me the same exact thing, a total stranger on the phone and/ or via mail, all YEARS BEFORE Blaine’s book appeared. Have a lovely day :O)

P.S. Lisa, you were very good on C-SPAN the other day. Nice to see Clint looking good again! (and I know what you’re thinking: “spare me, Vince” haha) 🙂

About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.
