:17:00
On the plane back to Washington...
:17:02
...word was radioed
from the Situations Room...

:17:04
...to Johnson that there
was only one assassin.

:17:07
Sound like coincidences to you?
:17:10
Not for one moment.
:17:12
The Cabinet was out of the way.
:17:15
Troops for riot control were in the air.
:17:18
Telephones were out to stop
the wrong stories from spreading.

:17:21
Nothing was left to chance.
:17:23
He could not be allowed to escape alive.
:17:29
Things were never the same after that.
:17:32
Vietnam started for real.
There was an air of...

:17:36
...make-believe in the Pentagon and CIA.
:17:39
Those of us in Secret Ops knew
the Warren Commission was fiction.

:17:43
But there was something...
:17:45
...deeper.
:17:47
Uglier.
:17:48
I knew Allen Dulles well.
I often briefed him in his house.

:17:51
But why was he appointed to investigate
Kennedy's death? The man who fired him.

:17:57
Dulles, by the way,
was General Y's benefactor.

:18:02
I got out in '64.
:18:04
Resigned my commission.
:18:07
I never realized Kennedy was so dangerous
to the establishment.

:18:12
Is that why?
:18:14
Tha¬Ěs the real question, isn't it? Why?
:18:17
The how and the who is just scenery
for the public.

:18:21
Oswald, Ruby, Cuba, the Mafia...
:18:24
...keeps them guessing, like a game.
:18:26
Prevents them from asking
the most important question: why?

:18:29
Why was Kennedy killed? Who benefited?
:18:33
Who has the power to cover it up? Who?
:18:39
In 1961...
:18:42
...right after the Bay of Pigs,
very few people know this...

:18:46
...I participated in drawing up
National Security Action Memos 55, 56, 57.

:18:51
These are documents classified top secret.
:18:54
In them, Kennedy told Gen. Lemnitzer,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs...

:18:58
...that from here on, the Joint Chiefs
would be wholly responsible...
