Notes (related to "The Kennedy Detail") in the outstanding book "Rawhide Down" by Del Quentin Wilber

Page 29: "...it was important that the president...trust the members of his Secret Service detail and even take their orders when necessary."


Page 42: "Better training might have prevented some of the terrible tragedies that haunted the agency. For instance, the driver of President Kennedy's limousine [Secret Service Agent William R. Greer] didn't recognize the sound of gunfire after [the] first shot. When Kennedy was hit by the second bullet, the driver slowed down as he glanced over his shoulder to see what was happening behind him. A few seconds later, with the agent having taken no evasive action and the limousine still lumbering straight down the street, the third, fatal bullet struck Kennedy in the head." On page 243 (Notes section), Wilber writes: "Many Secret Service agents expressed this sentiment in interviews [Wilber interviewed 25 former agents, including Jerry Parr, Robert Powis, Robert DeProspero, and John Simpson]." Wilber quotes from William Manchester's book "The Death of a President" [pages 155-156], "Even more tragic was the perplexity of Roy Kellerman, the ranking agent in Dallas, and Bill Greer, who was under Kellerman's supervision. Kellerman and Greer were in a position to take swift evasive action, and for five terrible seconds they were immobilized."

Page 130: "As a young military aide, [Secretary of State Alexander] Haig had helped plan Kennedy's funeral, and he'd long suspected the Soviet Union or Cuba of playing a role in the killing."
