Major Secret Service book coming 5/18/21 from renowned Pulitzer Prize winning author Carol Leonnig ZERO FAIL- I better be mentioned!

If you are going to share on Facebook, please use this URL instead: Vince Palamara’s main SECRET SERVICE blog: JFK, The Kennedy Detail, and more: Major Secret Service book coming 5/18/21 from renowned Pulitzer Prize winning author Carol Leonnig ZERO FAIL- I better be mentioned!

She is starting with the failure of the Secret Service on 11/22/63. Well, I have three books written between 2013-2018 on this subject (Survivor’s Guilt, The Not-So-Secret Service, and Who’s Who in the Secret Service [not including two other books in 2015 and 2021]), not to mention three prominent television/DVD/Blu Ray appearancesThe Men Who Killed Kennedy (2003, on You Tube ever since, and on Newsmax TV 2019-2020), A Coup in Camelot (2016 and available on Amazon Prime ever since), and the DVD about renowned agent Robert DeProspero called  The Man Behind The Suit (Associate Producer; also on You Tube) [not including the credits to the DVD JFK: The Final Hours]. I am also on a 2021 Channel 5 UK documentary.


In addition, I am mentioned in books by former Secret Service agents Tom Sloan (Guardians of Democracy), Gary Byrne (Secrets of the Secret Service), Gerald Blaine (The Kennedy Detail and the documentary, albeit unnamed) and Dan Emmett (original edition of Within Arm’s Length), not to mention Professor Philip Melanson’s major book on the Secret Service called The Secret Service: The Hidden History of an Enigmatic Agency (2003; updated 2005). I am also mentioned in the Assassination Records Review Board’s Final Report from 1998 (regarding my Secret Service interviews),not to mention renowned author Mark Lane’s book Last Word (Secret Service chapters), as well as over 150 other author’s books (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, a mention in Larry Sabato’s 2013 work The Kennedy Half-Century [regarding Blaine] and being mentioned on 16 pages of  Jesse Ventura’s 2013 book entitled They Killed Our President).
I also appeared alongside former agents Gerald Blaine and Clint Hill [via video] on C-SPAN in 2010 (also a DVD and on You Tube ever since) and Clint Hill himself further mentioned me in another C-SPAN appearance in 2012 (also a DVD and on You Tube ever since).


Last but certainly not least, I am mentioned a couple times in a prominent 10/17/2014 Vanity Fairarticle entitled Could The Secret Service Have Saved J.F.K.? which has been online ever since, as well as a directly related Irish Central article from 11/18/18 that has been online ever since. In fact, I am even in the bibliography of the book written by the author of the article, Susan Cheever, entitled Drinking in America-Our Secret History. Finally, I was mentioned several times in a major February 2010 COINage Magazine article about the Secret Service which included input from Secret Service officials.
Oh, and another thing: my work is very prominently featured all over the internet (multiple blogs, You Tube, etc.), including mentions in five Wikipedia Secret Service related entries.


I interviewed and corresponded with approximately 80 former agents + family members, not to mention many other principal people of importance.

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.
