Introduction NOTE: My JFK-era blog does not seek to denigrate the modern Secret Service in any way, shape, or form, or even, ironically, the PRE-November 1963 protection of JFK, which was often outstanding. THIS blog focuses harsh criticism ONLY upon the events related to 11/22/63. THAT EVENT ASIDE, I AM A GREAT ADMIRER OF THE SECRET SERVICE. ---- I am regarded as THE leading civilian authority on the United States Secret Service, especially with regard to the JFK/ LBJ years (I have interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents and family members, a world record! The Warren Commission: 12). I have appeared on the History Channel, C-SPAN, PA Cable Access, in the ARRB's Final Report, on radio, in newspapers, in over 80 other author's books, and all over the internet. I am the author of the book Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy; PRESIDENT KENNEDY WAS A VERY NICE MAN AND, AS MANY AGENTS TOLD ME (IN WRITING AND ON TAPE), HE *NEVER* INTERFERED WITH THEIR ACTIONS!
