As agent John Norris explained in Bill Sloan’s book J.F.K.: Breaking the Silence and in an interview for Vincent Michael Palamara’s book Survivor’s Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy: “Except for George Hickey and Clint Hill, [many of the others] just basically sat there with their thumbs up their butts while the president was gunned down in front of them.” [although Hill was one of the drinkers who went on to profit from the death of JFK]

Director Joe Clancy on Clint Hill, etc.

Director Joe Clancy on Clint Hill, etc.

"Clancy pointed to the ambush drill as a reminder of what is at stake for each Secret Service trainee. The exercise takes place in a mock village at the intersection of two roads, 15th street and Clint Hill Way.
Hill, as all Secret Service personnel must know, is the legendary agent who was on the detail assigned to protect President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963. The agent's agony of losing a commander-in-chief to an assassin...'s bullet was immortalized in the Clint Eastwood film based on Hill's life, "In the Line of Fire."  

Clancy said he still speaks to Hill and other former special agents in charge of the Secret Service every year.

"I always think about Clint Hill and all of our people should because you never what's going to happen at any time," Clancy said."

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.

CLINT HILL

11/21/63 Houston, TX- Secret Service agent Clint Hill laughs with the Kennedys and Connallys as fellow agent Sam Sulliman stands in proper formation on the other side of the limo. Sam joined the other Sam---Kinney---in telling me that JFK NEVER ordered the agents to do anything, let alone ordering the agents off the limo. Agent Stu Stout, who looks an awful lot like Hoover, stand in the middle in the background. I like rare photos; same ole same ole bores me

NOW FOR SOME GOOD SECRET SERVICE NEWS- go back to the Treasury Department and have THESE guys help the Director

NOW FOR SOME GOOD SECRET SERVICE NEWS- go back to the Treasury Department and have THESE guys help the Director

I mentioned Bob DeProspero very favorably today when I spoke to the Chief White House correspondent for Voice of America, telling him that an advisory committee of former highly esteemed Secret Service agents/officials would be a big help to augment Director Clancy in his quest to clean house and tighten the Secret Service ship in the midst of a few embarrassing headlines lately. Bob would be my number one choice by far. Others would include Jerry Parr, Dan Emmett, Joe Petro, Eddie Marinzel, Nick Trotta, Lew Merletti and David Carpenter.

The number two agent on President Obama's Secret Service detail: misconduct

The number two agent on President Obama's Secret Service detail: misconduct

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/secret-service-agents-investigated-for-late-night-car-accident-at-white-house/2015/03/11/9c853906-c7ff-11e4-a199-6cb5e63819d2_story.html

The administration is investigating allegations that two senior Secret Service agents, including a top member of President Obama’s protective detail, drove a government car into White House security barricades after drinking at a late-night party last week, an agency official said Wednesday.
Officers on duty who witnessed the March 4 incident wanted to arrest the agents and conduct sobriety tests, according to a current and a former government official familiar with the incident. But the officers were ordered by a supervisor on duty that night to let the agents go home, said these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive internal matter.



The agents under investigation are Mark Connolly, the second-in-command on Obama’s detail, and George Ogilvie, a senior supervisor in the Washington field office.

Joe Clancy now the permanent Secret Service Director- excellent choice!

Joe Clancy now the permanent Secret Service Director- excellent choice!

WASHINGTON — President Obama has decided to appoint Joseph P. Clancy, who has guided the Secret Service on an interim basis for the last four months, to lead the agency permanently, the White House announced Wednesday, 2/18/15...
Mr. Chaffetz said he appreciated “how available Acting Director Clancy has made himself over the past few months” and looked forward to working with him.
Administration officials hope that Mr. Clancy’s appointment can provide some stability at the agency, where five senior executives were demoted in the last month as part of an effort to shake-up the leadership structure and appease critics.
The Secret Service also faces a busy period ahead: Along with protecting the first family and senior government officials, it will oversee the security for a visit by Pope Francis, for the 70th United Nations General Assembly and the beginning of the 2016 presidential campaign.

President Obama has named Joseph Clancy as the new permanent director of the U.S. Secret Service, the White House confirmed Wednesday, defying the recommendation of an independent panel that recommended he look outside the agency.
Clancy, a 27-year veteran of the Secret Service and former special agent in charge of its Presidential Protection Division, took over as temporary director last October after the former director, Julia Pierson, resigned.

Some panel members said Wednesday that Clancy had a good mix of experience inside and outside the agency. "Joe Clancy is deeply respected within the federal law enforcement community. He has served with distinction inside the Secret Service, and he has done well respected work outside the Secret Service too," said Mark Filip, a former federal judge and deputy attorney general in the George W. Bush administration.
Johnson said that he and President Obama considered a number of candidates, "including those who had never been with the Secret Service.''
"Ultimately, Joe Clancy struck the right balance of familiarity with the Secret Service and its missions, respect from within the workforce, and a demonstrated determination to make hard choices and foster needed change,'' Johnson said Wednesday. "I am confident Joe will continue this management approach.''

Clancy formed a relationship with Obama as the head of his protective division before retiring in 2011...
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama weighed Clancy's personal attachments within the Secret Service with his ability to make a "cold-eyed assessment" of the agency's problems. He said Clancy's "credibility within the agency" has helped him to implement the recommendations of the independent panel brought in to examine the agency's operations.
Last month, Clancy forced out four senior agency officials after the panel's report found that the Secret Service was "starved for leadership."

"The Secret Service has decided to remove four of its most senior officials while a fifth has decided to retire, the biggest management shake-up at the troubled agency since its director resigned in October after a string of security lapses, according to people familiar with internal discussions...The four assistant directors who were told to leave are: Dale Pupillo, who oversees protective operations; Paul Morrissey, who oversees the agency’s investigative mission; Jane Murphy, who leads the agency’s governmental and public affairs; and Mark Copanzzi, who oversees technology and the tools for mission support.
