THIS WILL BE A MAJOR BOOK BY A DIVISION OF SIMON AND SCHUSTER! WRITTEN BY FORMER JFK/ TEXAS TRIP AGENT GERALD BLAINE [mentioned on the Air Force One tapes: "Blaine, Burke, and his party" (Austin)] AND HIS VERY GOOD FRIEND, CLINT HILL, WHO IS WRITING THE FOREWARD! (Clint Hill's brother-in-law? Fellow JFK agent David Grant, assistant advance agent for the Dallas trip!)

Blaine and many of his colleagues, including "the brass" (SAIC Jerry Behn, ASAIC Floyd Boring, and ATSAIC Art Godfrey) and several White House aides (including close JFK aide Dave Powers, Pierre Salinger, and Marty Underwood), all told me that President Kennedy was a nice man, never interfered with the actions of the Secret Service at all, and did NOT order the agents off his limousine.

President Kennedy was a very nice man and never interfered with the Secret Service at all...and that goes for JFK's aides, too-nice try! UH OH-guess who's responsible? I'll give you a hint: the initials are "SS" and I don't mean the Third Reich

First of all, Clint Hill WAS interviewed for William Manchester's book back in 1964 and 1965---

interviewed by: Warren Commission (March 9, 1964), for Manchester, The Death of a President (November 18, 1964; May 20, 1965), and 60 Minutes (December 7, 1975; November 1993); December 1963 newsreel regarding Treasury award (with C. Douglas Dillon as presenter); Who Killed JFK: The Final Chapter? (CBS, November 19, 1993); <b>The Secret Service and Inside the Secret Service videos (1995); Inside the U.S. Secret Service documentary (2004); Larry King Live (March 22, 2006)

Oops.

"Conspiracy theorists" don't just "claim" that the beloved Secret Service DESTROYED RECORDS OF PRESIDENTIAL TRIPS: THEY DID!!!!---

According to Chapter 8 of the Official Federal Government's Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB’s) Final Report (1998), given to President Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Trent Lott, and a gaggle of media luminaries and available the world over free---not for profit---online (kind of like my book):

"Congress passed the JFK Act of 1992. One month later, the Secret Service began its compliance efforts. However, in January 1995, the Secret Service destroyed presidential protection survey reports for some of President Kennedy’s trips in the fall of 1963. The Review Board learned of the destruction approximately one week after the Secret Service destroyed them, when the Board was drafting its request for additional information. The Board believed that the Secret Service files on the President’s travel in the weeks preceding his murder would be relevant. [Emphasis added.]

As the ARRB’s Doug Horne wrote in a memo dated April 16, 1996: “The ‘final decision’ to approve the Texas trip made ‘late Tuesday night’ indicates that de-cision came on September 24, 1963 … the Secret Service Protective Survey Reports … which were destroyed in 1995 commence with trip files starting on this same date: September 24, 1963 [emphasis added].” In addition, the ARRB’s Joan Zimmerman noted in a May 1, 1997 Memorandum To File: “Thus far, the US Secret Service collection is in 6 gray archive boxes for documents, 7 large, flat gray boxes with newspapers and clippings, and 1 small box with a tape cassette … In Box 5 there are three folders marked “trip file”. All are empty.” The chairman of the ARRB, Judge Jack Tunheim, stated: “The Secret Service destroyed records after we were on the job and working. They claimed it was a mistake that it was just by the normal progression of records destruction.” Former PRS Agent Dale Wunderlich wrote to me: “I assumed that advance reports from the early 1960s had been destroyed years ago.” The agent’s assumption aside, why wait until 1995, after the ARRB began its work?

Former agent Frank Stoner gave me a copy of the Secret Service's JFK inaugural survey report...I'm sure there are alot of 'things' in private hands.

And, last but not least...

ONLY forty??? :o)

Your book about the Secret Service was amazingly researched and quite enlightening. The people that try to keep a lid on this sort of stuff had to respond eventually. I'll wait to see what they say, but will keep looking elsewhere.

One thing I would like to know is what Secret Service Agent got out the bucket of water at Parkland Hospital and "cleaned up" the crime scene? Do we know who gave the order, and has this person ever testified in any forum about such an outrageous and grisly experience?

As previously discussed with Vince.

Robin,

Hi! The two agents who were cleaning the limo---and preparing the bubbletop to go on the car---were Sam Kinney (sunglasses, Atkins Parkland pic, facing Mac Kilduff; pictured in Curry's book getting assistance from a DPD officer in putting the bubbletop on the car) and the "infamous" George Hickey. Funny enough, the fascinating still you have here from the Atkins film appears, at first glance, to be Hickey, but I am not 100% it is; a mystery. Hickey can be clearly seen in Mary Barelli Gallagher's 1969 book about Jackie---she has her hand on his shoulder (he is on the far left, right beside Clint Hill).

Hickey in the middle

I beleive this man pictured below is most probably " George Hickey "

It would be nice if someone would post what this says as my flashplayer won't work on that link.

From what I gather however, former Secret Service Agent Gerald Blaine and a women journalist wrote a book The Kennedy Detail that will be published by Simon & Schuster and have an introduction by Clint Hill.

Now I know Hill wasn't part of any conspiracy, and I really believe, but don't know for sure, that Blaine knows there was one.

Blaine now lives in Grand Junction, Colorado, and I remember reading an article out of the local Grand Junction newspaper that was picked up by the wire services about an ex-Secret Service agent who gave a talk at the local Rotary Club and told them there was a conspiracy.

I think Vince might reference some of this, but I've never been able to find the article on line but it certainly sounds like Blaine, a retired security consultant.

The true story of the assassination of JFK, told by Secret Service agents who were there and who have lived with the guilt and grief from that day.

BK

Okay, it wasn't Blaine in the story. It was probably this: (Thanks Vince)

Lee Harvey Oswald didn't act alone when he killed President John F. Kennedy, a retired agent said Wednesday, and the president died because Secret Service agents failed at their jobs. "Officially, the answer to Oswald when somebody asks – because we were ordered to say it - is that the Warren Commission found that he acted alone," retired agent Jerry O'Rourke said. "But was there more than one gunman? Yes, personally I believe so. And my personal opinion about Jack Ruby is that he was paid to kill Oswald." O'Rourke grew up in Telluride and attended Western State and Regis colleges, then spent 22 years in the Secret Service. Now retired and back home, he spoke Wednesday to the downtown Grand Junction Rotary Club. O'Rourke said his group of agents, about 10 of them, had protected Kennedy the morning of Nov. 22, 1963, at a breakfast speech in Fort Worth. Then the group left by air for Austin, the next stop planned for the president's Texas tour.

"We got the word (of the assassination) in the air, and we didn't believe it at first," he said. "We were joking. But later, most of the agents had tears in their eyes. Agents believed in Kennedy, and we knew we failed our job in Dallas.” After his White House tour ended during Johnson's presidency, O'Rourke spent a year in the Secret Service intelligence division, which offered him glimpses into the investigation of Kennedy's death.

Those glimpses, and the accounts of other agents, have convinced O'Rourke that Oswald didn't act alone.

O'Rourke wrote to the author: “Keep in mind, some of the former agents you interview are not going to be receptive to you. Most don’t mind talking about the assassination but they still are very protective. Also, many continue to have some problems (mental?) dealing with what they feel as a failure on their part…Some of the retired agents have contested my beliefs on the assassination but most of those agents were still in diapers when 11/22/63 [the assassination] came about. I always answer them by stating, ‘I was there, were you?’ Some of those guys you interviewed are great guys while the others are…[ O’Rourke ended this comment in this fashion].”

O’Rourke added: “As I told you [,] a couple agents have problems with the assassination, Clint [Hill] being one. He is a good friend of mine but I have not seen him in 25 years…Yes, Clint still has problems with 11/22/63…Again, there are a lot of “people” (and agents) that disagree with my findings [regarding] Nov. 22nd but they have not done any research…I have visited with several of the agents that were right with JFK, at the time, and plied them with drink [!] When all of the records are completely released [,] we will know [what happened], if [we are] still alive.”

George W. Hickey, Jr., Special Agent, White House Detail, White House garage, United States Secret Service

At the end of the last report I reached to the bottom of the car and picked up the AR 15 rifle, cocked and loaded it, and turned to the rear. At this point the cars were passing under the over-pass and as a result we had left the scene of the shooting. I kept the AR 15 rifle ready as we proceeded at a high rate of speed to the hospital.

Agent Clint Hill was riding across the rear and the top of IOOX in a horizontal position. He looked into the rear of IOOX and turned toward 679X and shook his head several times. I received the impression that the President at the least was very seriously injured. A few moments later shift leader Emory Roberts turned to the rest of us in the car and said words to the effect that when we arrive at the hospital some of us would have to give additional protection to the Vice President and take him to a place of safety. He assigned two of the agents in the car to this duty. I was told to have the AR 15 ready for use if needed.

When we arrived at the hospital the President and Governor Connally were taken inside and about the same time the Vice President had arrived. I requested him to come into the hospital to a place of safety and he was surrounded by his detail and the other assigned agents, and myself and led into the hospital. When he entered I returned the gun to 679X as ordered by Agent Roberts.

By this time a great number of police had arrived with newsmen and others in the motorcade, and Agent Kinney and I stood by the cars. Agent Kinney requested that I go and see if I could find out what was to be done with the cars. As I was on my way into the hospital to do this, Mr. Kenneth O'Donnell asked me to take him to where the President was as he could not get by the police. I did this and he joined Mrs. Kennedy and Mr. Dave Powers outside the President's operating room.

Agent John D. Ready was stationed outside this room and he requested that I take his place for a few moments and to allow no unauthorized persons to enter or linger outside the door and to care for Mrs. Kennedy if necessary. I did this until Agent Ready returned and relieved me.

As I was leaving to go back to the area where Agent Roberts was, Mr. Dave Powers asked me to get a priest which I did. Agent Roberts informed me to wait until later when a decision might be made about the cars. Upon returning to the vehicles, I assisted Agent Kinney to put the tops on the cars.

A short time later Agent Roy Kellerman told Agent Kinney and me to take the cars to the plane and stand by for orders. Agent Kinney drove 679X and I IOOX to the plane and loaded them and secured the plane, allowing no one to enter except the regular crew.

Not one word about cleaning the Limo. ?

Washington, D.C.

I was driving SS 679-X, follow-up. As we turned off Main Street (left) about 4 minutes from our destination of Trade Mart. The first shot was fired as we were going into an underpass. The first shot was fired, I glanced from the taillight of SS 100-X, at the President and it appeared that he had been shot because he slumped to the left. Immediately he sat up again.* At this time the second shot was fired and I observed hair flying from the right side of his head. With this, simultaneously with the President's car, we stepped on the gas. I released the siren at that time. I did hear three shots but do not recall which shots were those that hit the President.

*At this time Clint Hill jumped off and ran to the President's car, jumped on the back, and laid out across the trunk in a prone position where he rode the entire trip to the hospital.*

Pulling up parallel to the lead car, we were notified we were heading for the hospital, whereupon the motorcycle escort, the lead car, President's car and follow up proceeded to the hospital at a high rate of speed. We pulled into the emergency entrance of the hospital whereupon Gov. Connally was removed and then the President, and taken inside.

After this, maybe 15 or 20 minutes later, I put the bubble and canvas cover on the car, assisted by SA Hickey. Then under motorcycle escort, both cars proceeded to Love Field, whereupon I notified the crew to get the ramp down and we drove the cars onto the plane and secured them, awaiting departure.

And thanks Vince and Robin for posting these photos and items, especially the two newsclips (last 2 on P.7) on SAIC NO John W. Rice, who we would also like to get a photo of.

Are there any photos of John W. Rice or Jerry O'Rourke?

Robin, the clean-up of the limo is not mentioned in any of the SS reports. What's worse, the Warren Commission undoubtedly knew of the clean-up of the limo, and failed to ask the SS to explain it.

From patspeer.com chapter 11:

Should one doubt that the “magic” bullet could have come from anywhere but Connally’s leg, one should consider that the bullet, had it fallen from Kennedy’s back as originally believed, would most likely have fallen out in the limousine, and that the limousine was cleaned up while sitting outside Parkland Hospital in Dallas by two Secret Service Agents, Sam Kinney and George Hickey.

Although William Manchester, in his book The Death of a President, disputed that such a clean-up occurred, citing a nurse who says she was asked to bring the agents a bucket of water but failed to deliver it, Manchester overlooked the statement of an orderly, Joe Lewis Richards, admitting that he did indeed bring them the bucket. An 11-22-63 UPI article, most likely reflecting the words of UPI’s man on the scene Merriman Smith, reported on this clean-up, stating: “Outside the hospital, blood was cleaned from the limousine.”

Manchester also overlooked the assertion in the 11-23-63 New York Times story on the assassination that “A bucket of water stood by the car, suggesting that the back seat had been scrubbed out.” (Years later, in his book “On Press,” Tom Wicker, the writer of the Times’ report, clarified that it was “a bucket of bloody water.”)

Manchester also ignored that Time Magazine’s Hugh Sidey reported seeing “A young man, I assume he was a Secret service man, with a sponge and a bucket of red water, and he was trying to wipe up the blood and what looked like flakes of flesh and brains in the back seat.”

He also overlooked that Newsweek’s Charles Roberts, who rode along with Wicker and Sidey in the motorcade, confirmed these accounts, admitting that he saw Secret Service men “mop up the back seat.” (Clearly not the suspicious type, Roberts thought it “ironic” that one of the Secret Service agents waved him aside and told him “you can’t look.”)

In later years White House photographer Cecil Stoughton and ambulance driver Aubrey Rike also admitted witnessing this clean-up. In Richard Trask’s Pictures of the Pain, in fact, a series of photographs taken by Stoughton capture the clean up, with the bucket in place by the left rear tire of the limousine. In 1983, one of these pictures was published by Life Magazine--not exactly a propagator of conspiracy theories--with the caption "Outside Parkland, agents clean the bloody limousine." More recently, in 2003, the Fox News Channel agreed that a clean-up had indeed occurred and broadcast footage of a Secret Service Agent, possibly Hickey, walking away from the limousine with the bucket.

That same week, a former member of the President’s Secret Service detail in Dallas, Gerald O’Rourke, came forward, telling the Rocky Mountain News “that on the day of the assassination, one agent was ordered to clean out the cars used in the motorcade, getting rid of blood and other evidence.” (He implied this was Kinney.) Yes, it's conclusive: a clean-up indeed took place.
