THE KENNEDY DETAIL
JFK’S Secret Service Agents Reveal the Inside Story of an American Tragedy
Secret Service Agent Clint Hill was just ten feet from President John F. Kennedy, desperately trying to hurl his body in front of the gunfire, when the president’s head exploded before his eyes. Covered with blood and pieces of the president’s brain, Agent Hill pushed Jackie Kennedy into the back seat and, clinging to the trunk of the open top limousine as it sped away from Dealey Plaza to Parkland Hospital, all he could do was slam his fist in anger, and give the thumbs down sign to the agents in the follow-up car behind him.
For nearly fifty years, the close-knit group of men who protected JFK have refused to talk about that tragic day. Until now.
