Not quite accurate. The SS didn't care about the entourage. Their only
concern was to get the new President in the air as quickly as possible.
He might have to order a counter strike against Russia which is kinda
hard to do if he is incinerated by one of the missiles hitting Dallas.
LBJ thought immediately that the assassination was a prelude to nuclear
attack as he had been told by his military advisor is how the Russians
would do it.
