“As the first gunshot sounded, I looked up to the building, thinking somebody was throwing firecrackers out of the window but I only had a split second before some stranger, and I still don’t know who it was, pulled me to the ground.”
“Then I heard what I thought was a motorcycle backfiring, only it wasn’t – it was the first shot and then in a few seconds, another shot and a third.”
“The president was on a stretcher. His arms were out on arm boards like this and Dr. Carrico, who was a second-year resident was trying to put a tube into his windpipe and then the tracheal tube to get an airway established, but the president was motionless. I never saw any movement. His eyes were open in a fixed stare.”
“While the nation was grieving around its television sets, we were there on the scene reporting, unable to take out time to grieve or to even know what was being done in Washington D.C., the ceremony, the funeral and the sadness that the other people were living through their television sets. We who were broadcasting didn’t see it all.”
“The Kennedy assassination became the template for coverage.”
“We were working in one of the worst moments of the nation’s life back then and we didn’t know what to make of it, much like what happened on 9/11.”
“There were a lot of people who wanted Kennedy dead, a lot of powerful people. There are secrets still being held and I never bought for a minute that Oswald operated alone.”
“They don’t know much about his presidency or why anyone would have wanted him dead.
“Most students, it’s fair to say, just know that JFK is the president who got shot. Beyond that, they’re pretty much blank slates.”
“It’s natural that an event like this would cause skepticism and suspicions, especially in light of what has come out about our government.”
BUELL FRAZIER, A CO-WORKER OF OSWALD WHO GAVE HIM A RIDE THE DAY OF THE ASSASSINATION.
“Most people are not satisfied with the officials story. But there is not enough evidence to support anything else.”
