The most distressing detail of the footage -- other than the exploding skull -- is the outward anguish of Jackie Kennedy, who in just seconds transforms from a poised First Lady into a blood-drenched widow. What you probably haven't heard was her insistence on staying that way.
Hours after the assassination, Jackie arrived on Air Force One for the emergency swearing-in of her husband's vice president Lyndon Baines Johnson -- still wearing her watermelon-pink suit from the motorcade, filthy with her husband's blood and brain matter. She had repeatedly shot down her aides' pleas to change with, "No, I'm going to leave these clothes on. I want them to see what they have done."
If you'd like to "see what they have done" for yourself (and if for some reason the unflinching video recording of President Kennedy's actual murder isn't enough for you), you can see Jackie's suit for yourself ... in 2103, when, according to the agreement set forth by her daughter, Jackie's blood-covered clothing will become displayable to the public. Such an artifact would surely be worth our great-grandchildren making the treacherous journey through the Wastelands!
