    News media is right! Kennedy killed himself!

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...ice-bodyguards

    Petro's point about the role the president's personality plays in his own safety is ably illustrated by the single most disastrous failure in the secret service's history the event that every incoming trainee agent spends hours and hours studying until it is drilled into his or her bone marrow. Judged by modern security standards, the shooting of John F Kennedy in Dallas on 22 November 1963 should for several reasons never have happened. The parade route Kennedy took was publicised in advance a cardinal sin by the rule book of today. Lee Harvey Oswald had a relatively easy line of fire from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, which would these days have been thoroughly swept and sealed off. But it was the orders given by Kennedy himself that did for him the president asked for the bullet-proof glass bubble to be taken off his limousine and for agents not to ride on the back of the car, thus leaving himself utterly exposed.

    In the last analysis, as Kennedy proved at his own cost, a president can only be as safe as he allows himself to be. Agents can advise the commander-in-chief what is best for his security, but they cannot give him orders. "The secret service would want to take the president to Camp David straight after the inauguration and keep him there out of any contact with the public for the next four years. But they know that's not possible," Petro says.
    Kennedy's stupidity, coupled with the steel stay back brace her wore that day, cost him his life. There was no conspiracy, only a stupid ego drunk idiot who zeroed himself out of existance.

    A life mostly spent feeling inadequate and guilt-ridden leading to downward spirals of depression and alcoholism (addiction to a depressant) exacerbating the problem can all be blamed on one person: Teddy himself.

    Have a nice day. :sun_smiley:

    It's sad to watch the films of the parade in Dallas and see Agent Hill riding on the back bumper on 3 occasions. Imagine if he was there when the car went down Elm?

    Two weeks before Dallas, JFK got into a bitter argument with Agent Rufus Youngblood over the near stiffling protection he was getting, especially with the agents "Hogging" the runners of the Presidential Limo. JFK thrived on attention and that thrill killed him.
