Secret Service Altered Bush Motorcade Route Based on Tip by Psychic. [dri]

The Secret Service changed the route that President George H. W. Bush was scheduled to take during a September 1992 trip to Enid, Oklahoma based on the visions of a psychic. The psychic claimed that an assassination attempt on the president would occur if the originally planned motorcade route was followed.

This revelation is alleged in a new book by investigative reporter Ronald Kessler entitled “In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect”.

According to Kessler:

"Agent Norm Jarvis was assigned to run intelligence investigations for the visit, and a detective from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation called him,"
"He said that a woman who was a psychic had told her police contact, whom she worked with on a homicide case in Texas, that she had had a vision that President Bush was going to be assassinated by a sniper."

The psychic then proceed to give details regarding an overpass that the alleged sniper would use in the attempt and correctly stated in which building presidential limousines were being securely stored.

"As more details from the psychic turned out to be right, the advance leader decided the psychic could not be ignored. Never mind if anyone thought they were crazy. Better safe than sorry, he and Jarvis thought."

A Secret Service spokesman denied the report stating that it was not the organization’s practice to change a motorcade route based on psychic visions.
