From the Author
"Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy" took over 20 years of my life to research and write. I knew I had to reverse the false verdict of history imposed on the late President Kennedy by some of his former agents, all in an attempt to blame the victim (JFK) for his own murder, that he ordered them off his limousine and other such falsehoods. When the number one and number two agents under Kennedy, Gerald Behn and Floyd Boring, respectively, categorically denied that Kennedy ever ordered them to do anything, along with the corroborating statements of top aides Dave Powers, Pierre Salinger, and many other former agents and White House aides, I knew the TRUE story of the JFK Detail had to be told. In addition, HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON'S SECRET SERVICE UNCLE REVEALED FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME ANYWHERE!"

One of the points discussed in the book is something that I've always been troubled by: the last-minute cancellation of the photographers' vehicle (directly in front of the Presidential limo) which had been expected by newsmen that day at Love Field (Thomas Dillard of the Dallas Morning News: "We lost our position out at the airport. I understood we were supposed to have been quite a bit closer. We were assigned as the prime photographic car which, as you probably know, normally a truck precedes the President on these things and certain representatives of the photographic press ride with the truck. In this case, as you know, we didn't have any and this car that I was in was to take any photographs which was of spot-news nature...and the whole parade, the whole trip to town, I could only distinguish the President's car on very few occasions in high rises in the ground, when we got on hills. It was difficult because the people in the cars ahead of me were sitting on the backs of cars which pretty well covered the President's car for me. We had a very, very poor view of the President's car at any time from the time the parade started.") Instead, photographers were forced to scramble for rides farther back in the motorcade, where even the White House photographer could not do his job of photographing the President. Consequently, the only photographic witnesses to the assassination were those on foot in Dealey Plaza.
