THE KENNEDY DETAIL-BEWARE:

“The Kennedy Detail” repeats constantly an alleged Kennedy quote about "Ivy League charlatans" that the author tries to convince (brainwash?) the reader into taking what was simply an off-hand quote/joke by JFK and turn it into a proclamation of strict procedure protocol-an astute comment from a reader

Just the best article ever...

My favorite (internet) article of all time- devastating to the Kennedy detail and never ceases to amaze me (and, no, I had nothing to do with it, although I am mentioned several times in it). A modern-day classic: http://www.sott.net/article/269016-Gerald-Blaine-and-the-Kennedy-Detail-Was-the-Secret-Service-Stood-Down-in-Dallas#

MY TWO BOOKS AND THREE MAJOR FORTHCOMING DOCUMENTARIES (more to come, as well)!

JFK files coming

It was Hunt, shortly before he died in 2007, who claimed that he had been privy to a plot by several CIA affiliates to kill Kennedy — what he referred to as “the Big Event.”
Also under review by the special team of archivists are at least 606 pages about David Atlee Phillips, another CIA officer who won a medal for his role in overthrowing the government of Guatemala in 1954, went on to run operations in Latin America, and along with Hunt played a leading role in anti-Castro activities in Cuba.
Phillips was accused — though never charged — of committing perjury when asked about agency ties to Oswald by the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Phillips, too, late in life attributed the JFK assassination to “rogue” CIA officers.

ABSOLUTE MUST-HAVE JFK BOOK !!!!

The Irish Brotherhood: John F. Kennedy, His Inner Circle, and the Improbable Rise to the Presidency- ESSENTIAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
TOUCHING, TERRIFIC and so well written!
 
Helen O'Donnell, the daughter of the late, great Ken O'Donnell, has written a book even better (if that is possible) than the wonderful "A Common Good". In short, this book is terrific, touching, and very well written; an account NO fan of JFK or RFK can live without! I am very impressed, indeed.

You know how there are some books where "once was enough" and you may not even want to own? Well, THIS book is both a "keeper" and one you will read and refer to again and again. Helen, you did your parents very proud with this excellent book. In fact, I have no criticisms whatsoever.

Get this one asap!

Agent John Campion

 
 
Vince,

Thank you for the pictures and your kind words about John.  He was one of the good guys.  He never told us much about what he did--he honored the confidence that was placed in him and was later upset when several agents wrote books or gave interviews that he felt were inappropriate.  He was asked many times for interviews or to write a biography but would have none of that.  Visiting his widow recently, I asked if she would write his biography and she said no, she would honor John's wishes not to tell stories.  John died on July 4, 1983 (I believe that was the year) in Southern Pines, North Carolina--a heart attack while playing golf.  He was an avid golfer and played golf with Eisenhower, and played poker with Truman--Truman would sign the dollar bills when he lost.  He was also in Warm Springs when Roosevelt died and carried the coffin to the train.

He had moved out of the White House detail in 1962 to an administrative role as a step to become the Director of the Secret Service--his widow had it confirmed from several sources after Kennedy was assassinated.  He never got that job but she did tell me that he had to replace several of the White House detail under Johnson.because the agents disliked LBJ so much.  

John never spoke of the assassination.  But he did tell me that he had been asked personally by Bobby Kennedy to head up his security detail when Bobby decided to run for President.  He said he told him no, because he knew that Bobby would never follow John's instructions on security--no one could protect them--they always wanted to be out there with the people, shaking hands and mingling.  He said (with sadness) there was no way to protect the Kennedys.

I have included a couple of pictures that you may not have. The one of John ducking down out of the picture with JFK shaking hands with Eisenhower was, I believe, the first time Kennedy met Eisenhower.

 
Regards,

Martha
