Jim Garrison interview (part II.)
Since I was DA of the city, I had a responsiblity to see what Lee Oswald was doing the summer of 1963.
I went down to 544 camp to look at it and see what it was. I took one look... and I said," Hell, this was the side entrance to Guy Bannister's office".

I knew Guy! He used to be head of the Chicago FBI office, and during WWII he was in the 'Office of Navel Intelligence'.

"Johnny Carson interviews Jim Garrison"
The morning after this interview on "The Tonight Show", Jim Garrison back in New Orleans, received over 2000 telegrams by 9:00am from various District Attorneys across the country. People were impressed by Carson's nervous antagonism, and in effect said, "Garrison must have something judging by the number of times that Carson tried to interrupt or change the topic". It became so bad that NBC sent out thousands of form letters saying that, "The Johnny seen on TV that night was not the Johnny we all know and love. He had to play the devil's advocate, because that makes for a better program". When they apologized for him, Carson was furious and said, "Garrison would never be on his show again".

And there is no way to survive if we don't bring out the truth about the how our President was killed four years ago. And the investigation by the Warren Commission wasn't even close.
