Mark Wilson Posted June 6, 2006 Share Posted June 6, 2006 Hello....Secret Service Agent Henry Rybka's role or non-role on 11/22/63,in my opinion, is one of the most mysterious pieces to the puzzle in the assassination of JFK.All the evidence involving Rybka,which is very little, that i've seen has come through the priceless research of Vince Palamara.Rybka seems to have disappeared into a vacuum minutes before JFK was killed.....For those not familiar with Rybka,he was a SS agent protecting the right back of the Presidential limo on 11/22/63 when the motorcade was leaving Love Field moments before JFK was killed,Rybka along with Clint Hill, who was protecting the back left of the limo and assigned to Jackie were ordered by Emory Roberts to fall back.Hill took the order in stride and fell back to the follow up Secret Service car with little or no unusual reaction but Rybka on the other hand, was somewhat defiant to this order by raising his arms in disgust as if to say "what the heck is going on here??".Rybka stayed at the air field and was apparently left out of some of the follow up reports as if he wasnt even part of the protection detail......Now connecting the dots as best we know it.......i believe Hill and Rybka were assigned to Jackie and JFK respectively and without these strange fall back orders, moments before the assassination, both of the agents wouldve been on the back of the limo at the time of the assassination......If Rybka was in place on Elm St. he couldve made a difference or not.....the plotters couldve just shot the agents first and then went after JFK,obviously more difficult than killing an unprotected JFK,but under the scenerio that unfolded,at least 6 seconds in which shots occurred probably more,if the 1st shot didnt get the agent(s) they would likely have been able to get both JFK and Jackie down,covered and out of harm's way.....i would consider the Rybka ordeal a smoking gun in the case.i'd be interested in other members take on all of this. mark Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
