Does it mention his Executive Order #11110, which LBJ rescinded while he was in the air on Air Force One - - destined for Washington, D.C., immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy? Or LBJ's signing of NSAM 273, which completely flipped Kennedy's NSAM 163, which he had just recently signed on October 11, 1963?
Best to read Andrew Cohen's wonderful book, Two Days in June, and also Donald Gibson's enormous achievement, Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency.
