NEW YORK (CBS 2) – When former President John F. Kennedy ordered his Secret Service agents not to ride on the back of his Dallas motorcade, agent Clint Hill knew he shouldn’t have listened to the Commander-in-Chief.

Almost 50 years later, Hill still blames himself for not taking the fatal bullet.

“Because I didn’t fulfill my responsibility of getting there to protect the president. That was my job,” Hill told CBS 2’s Don Dahler in Eye on New York.
