Secret Service Expert Vince Palamara Issues Formal Challenge to the Makers of The Kennedy Detail on Assassination Truth
“Their lies are an insult to every American,” says Vince Palamara, referring to the producers of the upcoming Discovery Channel special, The Kennedy Detail, which chronicles the lives of the men who protected—and ultimately failed to protect—President John F. Kennedy from assassination.
Mr. Palamara is a recognized expert on the subject of the United States Secret Service circa 1960-72. He is the author of the 2006 book Survivor’s Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect the President. He has appeared on C-Span and The History Channel.
“Documents, tapes, eyewitness accounts—and most importantly, accounts by Agents, several who were actually there—testify to the fact that the Secret Service’s actions were less than exemplary the day of the shooting. But what they did afterward is shocking.”
Palamara is referring to the alleged coverup of mismanagement and malfeasance within the Service that occurred immediately after the President’s death by snipers bullets.
He is issuing a challenge to Gerald Blaine, author of the book the movie is based on, and Clint Hill, co-producer of the movie. “I will debate you on the true facts of this case in public. Name the place and time.” If the producers refuse his challenge, Palamara says, “I will go one-on-one with Gyllenhaal, the director they’ve chosen.”
TV/commercial director Stephen Gyllenhaal, father of actors Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, is also adapting the original Blaine book for the small screen.
