CLINT HILL- the real story

An online commentator wrote: Clint Hill, Jackie’s personal agent, has said many times that President Kennedy DID order the agents off the back of his limo because he felt like their presence there made him less accessible to people.”

My response:

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: $$$$$


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 supboena 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 and The Not-So-Secret Service. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 120 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, C-SPAN, A COUP IN CAMELOT, KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT, National Geographic, 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.
