FORMER JFK AGENT ABRAHAM BOLDEN: “SAVING A PRESIDENT”
Abe wrote on 2/17/2017:
“SAVING A PRESIDENT: In January, 2017, in an open letter to President Donald J. Trump, I recommended that, for his OWN safety, the President should make certain changes within the structure of the Secret Service. This letter was precipitated by the statement from a secret service agent that she would not perform her sworn duties pertaining to the protection of President Trump. My first recommendation was to:
Dismiss the current Chief of the U.S. Secret Service immediately. It has now been reported that: “Joe Clancy, the Director of the Secret Service, announced his retirement. The announcement was made on Feb. 14th. It will be effective March 4th, just two weeks after the announcement. The announcement comes just three weeks on the job under President Donald Trump. Clancy served from 1984-2011, and from Oct. 2014-Feb. 2017. That means Clancy resigned with two weeks notice after roughly 29 years of service.” The next step should be a severance of the Secret Service White House Protective Detail from the Department of Homeland Security
and placed into a newly established Special Protective Services Section answering to the National Security Agency. This move would save the government millions of tax dollars by allowing sharing of the protective expenses across a wide cross-section of governmental military and civilian budgetary expenditures…………………I’m jus sayin…………..”
The success of the Secret Service is achieved with great sacrifice by all of you and your families,” Clancy wrote in a letter to Secret Service staff members. “Please accept my sincere and heartfelt thanks for your dedication to our mission. You have inspired me. My hope was that I could return your gifts of inspiration with some measure of good for the Secret Service.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz also addressed Clancy’s resignation in a Tuesday statement.
I appreciate Director Clancy’s dedicated service to this country,” the Utah Republican wrote. “He took on the difficult task of returning to and taking over an agency plagued with mismanagement, misconduct and security lapses.”
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.
