On the state of the JFK assassination case, MY NEW BOOK, and more: Vince Palamara


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.

    Hey Vince,
    I have a question for you. If you’ve already discussed this somewhere else maybe just point me in the direction. I heard you mention this, maybe on the Black op radio interview, but I read the little bit you had on it in your book on page 226. You believe that the rifle was, in fact, Oswald’s. I assume you’ve read what John Armstrong has written on it, as well as others(David Jacobs, Gil Jesus). His article was pretty intense and difficult to retain but I went through it painstakingly several times and even took notes. The order was for a different gun, the one they sent was not in their warehouse until a month later. The scope business, that Klines did not mount scopes on that size gun. The problems with the order coupon and mailing it, leaving work but not signing out, buying the money order at one post office and then traveling miles in order to post it at a different one and then getting back to work somehow with no one noticing he was gone. The problem with it arriving in Chicago and being deposited the same day(or maybe it was the next day?). The fact that the money order was never actually cashed. Problems with the sequencing of the money order itself(it was totally out of sequence for the month that it was purchased). There’s the PO Box problems. The problems just go on forever with this rifle business. I’m just curious if you’ve really researched the gun business and have come to a solid conclusion from other sources or if it just seems like the gun had to be his? “Again, the rifle had to be his and had to have been fired from the window in order to frame him.”(pg. 226)

    This does makes sense but on the other hand there are SO many problems with the ordering of the rifle, as well as the rifle itself, I just get the sense that it would be more plausible that everything to do with the rifle had been handled by others to make it appear that the rifle was connected to Oswald.

    And I don’t really trust the business of finding the fingerprint. Check out DiEugenio’s Reclaiming Parkland pg. 214-216, called “Sebastian Latona vs Lt. Day.” Lt. day is one of the people in the DPD who had to be connected somehow. The number of lies and conflicting statements he gave to the Warren Commission concerning the shells is way beyond innocent. Yeah, I don’t trust that that’s the guy who found the killer evidence when neither the FBI or DPD found any trace of prints, and he found it, I think, more than a week later. I find it hard to believe.

    Thanks for all your work.
