Secret Service Agents Spill Details Of JFK Assassination

Interesting new details on one of America’s defining moments, from CNN:

After the first shot hit the president, former agent Clint Hill says, “I saw him grab at his throat and lean to his left. So I jumped and ran.” Hill is the man seen running toward the limousine in the famous film of the shooting, captured by a bystander named Abraham Zapruder. Hill jumped onto the back of the presidential car, in a desperate attempt to protect the president.

    You reminded me of a funny parody bit that had been circulating via chain-emails. It purports to link Toyota’s difficulties in engineering floormats to the JFK assasination. I published it under the title “Toyota Perfects Floormat Technology”. At my blog here:

    One more attempt to throw something “official” out there that will further cover up what really happened.
