♪ storm dprunlting. it's the busiest travel week of the year. along with typical delays and traffic. you know the deal, a massive weather system is threatening to make thanksgiving travel even worse, i'm sorry to say. this thing is expected to affect nearly the entire country. breaking overnight, secretary of state john kerry arrived in north korea to try to hammer out an agreement with the deal. and the moments here for you "the hunger games" fans.
3:01 am
catching fire. the big opening weekend could be one for hollywood's history books. your "new day" starts now. good morning to you on a saturday morning. isn't it nice to get up and just take a breath and relax at home? we don't know. >> yes, that's early morning. yeah, our morning started last night, actually. >> yes, yes, but we're glad that you're with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 6:00 on the east coast. this is "new day saturday." >> everybody get down! >> you can imagine, new this morning, two separate incidents created instant panic at los angeles international airport last night. an apparent prank caller alerted police to a gunman in terminal 4. now, they evacuated the terminal. several thousand travelers out, but there was no gunman. now about the same time, a woman lost control of her suv and crashed outside of terminal 5.
3:02 am
>> after a short period of time, the officers were able to determine that there was not a shooting that occurred in terminal 5, but rather, the sounds from the traffic collision caused people to think there may have been shots fired. >> the incidents show l.a.x. is still on edge after the three weeks now, after the shooting that killed tsa officer geraldo hernandez. meanwhile, the temperature, if you have not opened your door to let your dog out yet, or checked outside, it's plunging. just as 43 million of you i know get ready for the busiest travel season of the year. it's already snowing out west. it's expected to be much of the same as we head into thanksgiving. several states are now into a winter storm warning. >> reporter: all right, the west has been hammered by severe weather from icy road conditions in oklahoma city. to flooding in arizona and
3:03 am
california. and snow in nevada. now, the weather out west has been difficult and dangerous. in california alone, strong winds downed trees and power lines in the san francisco bay area. high winds are also being blamed for stoking the wildfire in napa county. and a man had to be pulled from the fast-moving water of the santa ana river after a massive downpour in the san bernardino valley. but the system is expected to move east, just in time for peak thanksgiving travel. >> all right. we need meteorologist karen maginnis in here this morning. >> yes, we need answers. hey, karen, is it all out west or is this going to head east and affect other people? >> we've got a couple of events taking place. the storm system that impacted the southwestern and the west coast of the u.s., well, that's a deep area of low pressure. that's been moving very slowly but gradually sinking to the
3:04 am
south but not before producing an additional one to two inches of rainfall. here you can see, the view across texas, is this going to change dramatically over the next 24 to 48 hours. here's some of that moisture moving back up across arizona. you get into the higher peaks and it changes to snowfall. it's been heavy at times, also into the mountains of southern california. but look at what happens as we go into the next 24 hours. here's that localized flooding just to the north of phoenix. they've already seen one of the wettest novembers on record. but then as we go into sunday and monday. winter storm warnings out and storm watches for portions of texas. that does include the dallas-ft. worth, san antonio area, you could see snow. you could see ice. you could see a mixture of that. it is going to be quite the impact across the south central united states. here's what's happening. area of low pressure, that will move across the southwestern sections of the u.s. head to the south and just kind
3:05 am
of fizzle out. but then we watch the development of another storm system. this in the gulf of mexico but, remember, there's lots of cold air is that is diving towards the south. so you get moisture in place. you get cold air in place. and we could see the setup for an ice storm that's still to be developed. they're still evolving and tweaking the forecast there. but here is the true measure of what's going to happen if you try to head out for your thanksgiving holiday. area of low pressure along the gulf coast. it could take several tracks. one of them swings it out further out across the atlantic, but still could produce pretty gusty winds. then we're looking across the midwestern u.s. if it takes another track closer to the coast, you're looking the a snowstorm. and in the meantime, chicago, temperatures only in the 20s. but this time of year, it should be in the 40s. christi, victor, back to you. >> karen maginnis, thanks so much. >> i heard snowstorm.
3:06 am
>> i heard ice storm, because i could till something, we got one of those in the city of atlanta a couple years ago, and the city literally shut down. we don't have the capacity to deal with it. >> busiest airport in the country. hey, while were you sleeping, america's top diplomat flew to geneva and this could be a history making mission. secretary of state john kerry is trying to secure a landmark deal between iran and other world powers. now, the goal is to keep iran from developing a nuclear weapon. let's go to cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto in geneva. jim, the gathering of additional world leaders is being called maybe hasty. what's the latest on the talks today? >> well, good morning, victor. a real sense of momentum here. you now have all the heavyweights in place. the top diplomats from the permanent security council, plus, secretary of state john kerry, as i was walking in a few
3:07 am
minutes ago, i saw the british foreign secretary arrive. when he arrived he said we're not here necessarily because the deal is done. he said that sides are very close. here's how he described the state of play just a few moments ago. >> there's a huge amount of agreement. and it remains the case, a huge amount of progress has been made in recent weeks. and the state of this negotiation is entirely different from a few months ago with iran. that's positive. but some the difficult areas remain difficult. >> and one of those areas, apparently, is the amount of sanctions relief given to iran in exchange for the restriction that's would be placed on its nuclear program. so far, u.s. administration officials have been telling us it's in the area of single digits and billions of dollars, $6 billion, $7 billion, $8 billion. apparently the iranians asking for more, perhaps. and that's one of the things
3:08 am
they'll be working out right now. we see a flurry of meeting. weapon get an update with secretary of state john kerry meeting with the british prime minister and that's getting updated. >> there's been a number of voices, that is the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has said this is a bad deal, a really bad deal. is there anyone specifically who he has the ear of who is in these meetings today? >> well, he's, of course, always going to have the ear of the secretary of state john kerry. we're close allies. and netanyahu has taken the step this time of being very public with that voice speaking virtually every day against this deal. now when i speak to u.s. officials about this, they say, listen, we're good friends but we have a tactical difference here. u.s. officials believe they have a way forward they can make a deal with iran, verify it, and keep iran's program from moving
3:09 am
forward. in fact, roll back some key areas of its program where the israeli position is the opposite of that. i think it's one of those situations, we're close allies, but the leaders of these two countries, israel and the u.s., have decided they can agree to disagree on whether a deal is possible and verifiable. >> stay close, cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto will be checking in with you. >> you know the commercial says zoom, zoom, stocks will be starting monday in a record territory. >> my friend, the dow jones industrials closed friday at 16,064. for the year, dow stocks have gained an impressive 22%. now analysts say the federal reserve's ongoing stimulus program is behind this surge. speaking of surges, did you wait in line for the new "the hunger games."
3:10 am
movie? >> hopefully, you had a coat, jacket. fans are flocking to the movies in droves, look. >> there she is! >> ahead, how catching fire may scorch box office records. and why jennifer lawrence says the worst experience of her life was when the first "the hunger games" movie came out. an heal at with a bundt cake. make a monday mornin' feel like a friday afternoon with some nestle toll house morsels. let's close our laptops and open our ovens. these things don't bake themselves. we have to bake them for one another. we can bake the world a better place one toll house cookie at a time. nestle. good food, good life. nestle. but i didn't want her towait see my psoriasis. no matter how many ways i try to cover up, my psoriasis keeps showing up.

this is the 75th year of "the hunger games." the tributes are to be reaped on the existing pool of victors. >> i have to say good-bye. >> what are we doing? >> these games are going to be different. >> the 75th hunger games! >> ready to work? >> camera 17, victor -- >> it's here. the much anticipated "hunger games" sequel "catching fire" debuted thursday night.
3:14 am
listen to this. on that night alone, it's a thursday. people have to go to work friday it raked $25.2 million. >> katniss saying this is going to be hugely popular. >> she's played by jennifer lawrence, of course. and the movies have become one of hollywood's top franchises. >> and the latest one looks as though it's going to torch the competition. maybe even set a november recordoverall. cnn correspondent michelle turner looks at how much "catching fire" might actually make. good morning, michelle. >> reporter: hey victor, hey christi, happy hunger games, right? the sequel to the blockbuster is in theaters now. the pundits predict a huge hit. not like a massive hit and going
3:15 am
out on a limb or anything. here's numbers the movie opened in overseas markets on thursday. state side friday. the expectations of north of $150 million domestically. and also possible $300 million worldwide. those are crazy numbers. other pundits think the northern american numbers could be $60 million which would beat "twilight saga: new moon." it is clear that the film should outdoo its predecessors, $152 million opening back in march 2012. the first movie made $691 million and yes, indeed it made miss jennifer lawrence a superstar. she's only 23. not only does she already have a best actress oscar, but according to forbes, she's the second highest paid actress in hollywood, just behind angelina jolie.
3:16 am
also according to "forbes" she made $26 million last year. talk about a good investment for studios. the first "the hunger games" $500,000. the second one, $10 million. in order to get what she wanted to do she makes the prestige movies like the new film coming out "american hustle" she mixes those with the big money mackers like "x games" and "the hunger games." and then you can tell she want to be an actress and not necessarily a superstar. i sat down with her recently, and she's really open about she doesn't necessarily love the attention she gets as a celebrity, listen. >> the day the movie was released, i had no idea i was famous. i don't actually think i knew the movie came out. the whole thing was the worst experience of my life.
3:17 am
they called the police and i had to go down the cargo elevator. i was crying. >> geez. >> yes, i saw my ex-boyfriend there, he's like how's your life? i was like really bad. >> i wonder what that ex-boyfriend is saying right about now, huh? by the way, she's also the face of miss dior handbags and thought to be another big endorsement, about eight figures. the bottom line, of course, the bottom line. she's money. and in hollywood that is gold. victor and christi, back to you. nis krchl nischell turner, thank you very much. >> we know she won the oscar? >> that number is going up for her. still to come on "new day." first, the nfl scandal, we've been talking about this, right? >> one of the league's refs is

3:23 am
quote, garbage expletive. with the collective bargaining agreement, a referee cannot use any language that is either directly or indirectly insulting to a player. the referee's job is to restore order and keep things calm at all times. no matter if the player is saying offensive things to the ref. the ref has to remain neutral. they believe it's an unfair penalty. they're appealing. it's on the grounds that this creates a double standard between on-field conduct between referee and player. trending on, chicago bulls star derrick rose hurt again last night. he hurt his knee again. this time, it's his right knee. you'll see in this video, it's a noncontact injury. he gets hurt after making a sharp cut on the court. rose went to the locker room and did not return to the game. this scene is all-too painfully familiar for bulls fans because last year, he sat out of all of last season because he tore his

obama care. americans have to the 23rd of december to enroll for coverage that will start january 1st. the original deadline was december 15th. the of course, people know why, the trouble with, the website. this morning, the international community may be a little closer ever really to a deal about nuclear energy. and nuclear power, with iran, and the possibility of that nuclear weapon. secretary of state john kerry has landed in geneva to join negotiations. experts say his arrival indicates world powers on the verge of an agreement. the goal is to prevent, iran, of course from developing that nuclear weapon. so will today be the day? let's bring in former under secretary of state nicholas burns, he joins us from new york. and boston international security analyst jim walsh. let's start with nick. thank you both for being here. nick, does kerry's arrival signal this is a done deal? or is this a group of world leaders trying to save a deal
3:32 am
that's so close but hinging upon one element? >> victor, it's not a done deal. these foreign ministers including secretary of state john kerry have arrived there to try to save a deal. these are very tough negotiations between iran and the west. and the united states is not interested in any deal. it has to have the right deal and that would be to freeze iran's enrichment program and also stop work on the iraq heavy reactor. that's the issue two weeks that was the final impediment that prevented a deal. france has taken a tough position. the u.s. is going to have to bend to the fact that they want a deal in geneva. >> jim, it seems like the deal is closer than ever. however, iran has said to its foreign minister that they want in this deal explicitly written that they have the right to enrich uranium. how flexible will the international community be with that element in this deal?
3:33 am
>> my guess, victor, that's something that can be worked out. and we had reports late last night that that had in fact been worked out. you know, the u.s. is not in the position of granting rights to other countries, so there's no need to say you do or do not have a right to enrich. and frankly, under this deal, what's going to happen is that iran's no longer going to present 20% enriched uranium. it's going to continue to enrich at a lower level, 3% to 5%. when there are words in the document that say you have a so-called right to enrich, or there aren't words in that document, the result is iran's enrichments at 3% is going to be. i think the issue that nick points to, the issue of the heavy water reactor is going to be more of a sticking point and if france insists that that be done in the first part of the deal, rather than the second part of the deal, then i think the p5 plus 1 nation nations
3:34 am
have to sweeten their side of it. this can't be one-sided. it has to be proportionate and reciprocal. if that happens, of course, we're going to get something. of course, we'll be watching all day pins and needles to see if this works out. >> we've got numbers what people feel about the potential deal. it shows 56% of americans are in favor of an international agreement that would impose restrictions on iran's nuclear ability but not end it completely. 38% opposed to that. nick, what are you learning from the numbers? are these surprising to you? >> in a way, they're not surprising because it's been 34 years that united states and iran have talked to each in a meaningful way. we haven't had diplomatic relations and we're also coming out of two wars in iraq and afghanistan. so it's sensible to think that the united states should be looking towards diplomacy first. if we have an opportunity to resolve this problem, that would
3:35 am
mean prevent iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. we can do that through negotiations and we have enormous leverage over iran and we're using it, that's a good deal for the united states. i think that's where the majority of americans on your poll obviously are. the other side of the ledger, however, is that the iranian government say government that has lied to the united states and u.n. and other countries in the past. we really need to hold their feet to the fire. this has to be a good deal. a solid deal. we shouldn't be interested in any deal, just the right deal, as jim says would freeze their enrichment program. and that would be a great advantage for us going forward. >> nick, you bring up that issue of iran's credibility and this issue and other issues. i want to play you something that national security adviser susan rice said. we'll talk about that credibility on the other side. let's listen. >> this deal, if it were agreed would halt all the progress in iran's nuclear program. and roll it back in key respects. the international committee would have unprecedented access to iran's nuclear facilities and
3:36 am
full transparency into what they're doing. >> so, jim, the question goes to you. i mean, the idea that the u.s. will have full access and unprecedented access to what they're doing. i mean, is that credible? is that a little naive, considering that the world is applauds bashar al assad for allowing access to his stockpiles. and possibly some that he's keeping secret? are we sure we're going to have access that the adviser said? >> well, right now, look where we're as a resulting off eiea, the national energy international inspectors are on the ground, almost every week now. the facilities particularly the enrichment facilities which are the most sensitive are nearly under supervision by other agencies. there are other parts that we have not had as much access as we would have liked.
3:37 am
including the heavy water plant and associated facilities. i think this greet will see more transparency in an initial agreement. again, i want to remind you, victor, is this the first phase. there are two phases of this. there's an initial agreement where both sides do this. there's confidence and momentum. and then we're going to see, i think, in the second and final phase, even more transparency. iran is going to have to abide by what's called additional protocol and other sorts of obligations that will give us a really good look, a really good peek inside of iran's program. trust but verified, yes, negotiators are bargaining in good faith. at the end of the day we want the guarantee that all parties are following through on their commitments. >> jim, you say trust and verify. there's the loudest voice knocking in the room that says do not trust. that's israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who says this is a bad deal.
3:38 am
how will this, if this deal goes through, impact u.s. relations on other issues that the president, president obama, is trying to work out with prime minister netanyahu? >> well, if this deal goes through as the administration has indicated, it's a good deal for the united states. it's very painful to see an open disagreement between two good friends, israel and the united states. i would hope the israeli government would be objective and understand it's in america's best interests to go forward with the negotiations and stop iran. the prime minister is opposed but there are many others who are not so i would hope that the israeli government would stop its outright public criticism of president obama and the united states. and understand that the united states is doing the right thing here, and ultimately, the middle east is going to be a lot better off if this can be resolved peacefully, if that's possible, without the resort to force. >> nicholas burns, jim walsh,
3:39 am

♪ gun! >> yeah, that famous scene from the 1993 movie "in the line of fire" is what some people fear could happen if congress does not renew the ban on undetectable weapons. in the movie, john malkovicmalk
4:42 am
character uses a weapon. that includes 3d printed guns which contain virtually no metal. there is some is, virtually no metal, though. officials fear they could fall into the wrong hands and get past security and airports and schools if congress doesn't renew the band. let's talk about this. i want to impact this issue. let's bring in former atf assistant director mike bouchard and the first 3d inventor of the printer, the liberator. >> john, i want to start with you, what's the purpose of the liberator? >> i think the liberator was symbolic. we wanted to create a political message around. at the same time i don't want to
4:43 am
justify its existence or why we should have made it. or why people should have access to it. >> for the political message, what's the message? >> my message is simple, for everyone in the future through digital manufacture will be able to create a gun for themselves by downloading it from the internet. there's nothing that anyone can do 0 about that. a political up front, progressive moves. security technologies means people can make more what they want, especially potentially dangerous objects like a firearm. >> it's been downloaded many, many times. thousands of time. we're at the point of people being able to create these things. are you aware of the dangers? and what are your concerns about anyone being able to print these now? >> well, i don't think the conversation is qualitative with change. anyone can make a gun. it's legal for them to do so, most of the time, if they're not
4:44 am
a felon or otherwise. i think there's in the guns control act. outside of cat gorical bans or manufacture. my criticism of this current renewal proposal it's a way of gaining a foothold in suppressing an entire branch of technology, rather than making a firearm. >> mike, articulate, if you would, the concern about these types of weapons, and the concern if this ban is not renewed? >> well, it's important to have the law in the books and have guns detected because when most of us go in airports or government buildings or other settings when we go through a magnetometer, we have a feeling of safety that when we go through there someone with a gun or a knife isn't going to attack us. so this type of firearm will not
4:45 am
be detected anywhere. you could be sitting on an airplane next to someone carrying this thing. the biggest concern for this is criminals and terrorists are creative enough. i've spent over 30 years in my life working in public safety trying to arrest criminals and outthink them. law enforcement is looking for creative people to help us do those kinds of things not make it easier for criminals and terrorists? >> do you think you're making it easier for criminals and terrorists, cody. >> i think his comments are disingenuous. they can pick up these outside of magnetometers. i think we should look at what else is in this bill. it's not just making plastic guns illegal. it's making any plastic gunfire made by a 3d printer as well. it's a way of instituting gun control by other means. >> so, mike, even if this
4:46 am
bill -- if this act is renewed, the liberator would still be legal, correct? >> as long as there's a metal -- enough metal in the gun, that it can be detectable by the magnetometers. >> so then what the point of legislation, if we still have the liberator, and you think that this gun is dangerous, what is it really stopping? >> well, the legislation in my opinion doesn't go far enough. in my opinion, the legislation should say that there has to have enough metal in one of the working components of the gun to make it detectable. as the law stands now, if they just extend it, there's a metal piece that you can add to it, just take it toout and throw it away. and it's still undetectable and it meets the current law. >> cody, back to you, with the printing of these guns and people having the capability to do this at home, you eliminate, and i'd assume this is something you support, you eliminate the ability to keep this away from
4:47 am
people with mental disabilities for other legal reasons should should not have a weapon. your thoughts on that? >> yeah, basically that's true. the gun control lies on federal licenses and dealers being the channels who can have access to the commodity, right. but when we have increased production the entire model changes and the paradigm breaks down a little bit and you can't rely on law enforcement. even the technologies right now, the ones that have access to, rely on polymers and plastics, this is not a reason to prevent experimentation. we all know there's a race to the bottom with new materials and new techniques. i think there's a better social dimension to allowing people to legally experiment with these things in gun manufacture and other manufacturers. in the interest of a better future. >> cody wilson, mike bouchard,

5:32 am
political commentators. maria cardona and will cain. >> good morning. >> let's start here. what is most interesting to me about the conversation is just a few years ago in 2005, both sides here on the opposite sides they are arguing now. mitch mcconnell and harry reid and then senator obama. i will start with you, maria, about the hypocrisy of what happened this week. >> i think the issue here, victor, is when president obama was senator obama, the partisan ship was not at the level that it was today. in fact, senator reid said this. no side has completely clean hands on this. both sides have used the filibuster as a tool. this is, i think, the feature
5:33 am
that got me. in the history of the united states, 168s tim times, the filibuster has been used. half of the time it has been used in president obama's tenure. it has gotten to the point where it is historic and absolutely nothing is getting done. the reasons why the republicans were blocking the nominees were not substantive at all. nothing with qualifications. it was pure politics. that is what senator reid wanted to get rid of. >> let's get will in here on this. senator mcconnell in 2005 was in favor of the nuclear option. >> victor, you said earlier the republicans are getting the democrats to take over the senate. let's use the words five years ago where president barack obama said this would increase gridlock in the senate. joe biden said i pray god we do
5:34 am
not make a naked power grab once we're in power. it is flipped. maria has the numbers right. what is flipped, the democrats are now in the majority. that is the huberous of the deal. mitch mcconnell wasn't so opposed when he was in the majority. this is a big deal, guys. this is a dramatic shift in the way we govern. >> think about this, if this is how it will be now, what happens when there is a shift in power again and now it would be on the republicans, right, maria? are they thinking this through? >> sure. there is no question we could come one day to regret this. i guarantee you that this will focus democrats a lot more on making sure we keep the senate in the coming years. to will's point, yes, several years ago, both sides were on
5:35 am
the opposite side. the stats were not to the extent that we see them today when democrats were in power -- i'm sorry, when republicans were in power and democrats were the minority. democrats did not use the filibuster to this end. when democrats filibusters republican nominees, it was on substance and qualifications. it wasn't just because they did not want to see the courts tilted more republican or more democrat. that is a ridiculous political argument that should not get in the way of doing the nation's business and not filling the courts. >> will, go ahead. >> i want to say our principles cannot be so convenient that where the rules only matter and the rules are when we are in charge. that means you have no principles. just to add to the statistics, i gave you earlier, marimaria, th8 filibusters have been a majority
5:36 am
of president obama's charge. 74% of his nominations, as compared to democrats approving 67% of bush's. judicial nominations have been passed through. >> let me bring you something on the playbook. strategy memo filled with talking points and social media and video and digital flyers. this fight over obama care has intensified because of the problems of this has been discussed and legislated and upheld by the supreme court. is this going to be the focus going into the 2014 for the gop? >> it better, victor. the program is falling apart. forget if you like the law or the law of the land. the question is if the law of the land is any good. this will play out perfectly in 2014. not just to hold the trumpet to highlight how bad it is. the problems will continue into

2014. guys, i promise you you will hear of bailouts in 2014. you will hear about people losing health insurance because of the mandate. i say this one extra thing, republicans, i believe, should be ready to provide a solution. that does not mean ignoring the obama care. trumpet those to the mountain tops. >> will and maria, this is too short. thank you. >> thank you, both. >> thanks, christi. all right. sufferers of migraines say they are unbearable. there is a new relief and that is sparking controversy. stay close. christine romans has a review of "your money." >> five years after the financial crisis, you still feel

gaps we have to bridge. >> jim, we heard from some leaders in congress this week about partisan group urging the administration not to agree to this deal and even if this deal is agreed to, senators like john mccain are skeptical. >> reporter: well, right. they are threatening to add new sanctions on top of the many sanctions that are already effecting iran. the administration feels they are able to push off the sanctions push for at least a couple of weeks. they say if you put in new sanctions now, we really can't take advantage of the historic opportunity or iranians appear willing to talk about new and unprecedented restrictions on the nuclear program. give us a time to explore that. the administration is aware they can only hold that off for so long. there is talk about new sanctions would not come until

6:18 am
me. >> what was it like to be there? >> well, it was nice to be there to pay tribute and honor president kennedy, but at the same time, it was emotional to be there and to just be present in that space where all this occurred those 50 years ago. so, it was with mixed feelings. >> can you help us -- take us back to that moment and help us understand what it was like for you. when you jumped on the back of that car, did you immediately know the president was dead? >> well, i got up there and i put mrs. kennedy back in the backseat and the president's body fell into her lap with his head with the right side of his face up and i could see his eyes were fixed and his -- i could see through the skull where the brain matter was completely gone. at that point, i did assume that he was dead because it appeared to be a fatal wound to me. >> what did the first lady say
6:19 am
to you or to him in those moments? >> well, she really didn't speak to me directly. what she said was, at first, she said, i have his brains in my hand because she had come up on the trunk to try to retrieve some of the material that came out of the president's head when he was shot. she was there in the seat with the president's body in her lap. she said, oh, jack, oh, jack, what have they done. oh, jack, i love you. that was it as we drove all the way to parkland hospital. >> you were with her for hours after that. can you tell us about that? >> i was with her constantly from that point on. i had been for a matter of three years. from that point on, i was with her all the way back to washington and out to bethesda naval hospital where the autopsy was performed. i took her up to the 17th floor to make sure she was comfortable
6:20 am
and family members arrived. then we took the body of the president back to the white house. i was with her until she went up to the residence of the second floor of the white house. she was going to remain there for a while. at that point, about 6:00 in the morning, i did go home and shave, shower and change clothes and grabbed a bit to eat and went back to the white house. i was with her all the time. >> how did you see her evolve after that? i think i read that you said the sparkle in her eyes was gone when he was gone. >> that's true. from that point on, that sparkle was gone. that smile was gone. she didn't laugh like she used to. she was very sad and it was very, very discomforting to see the way she was because she had been so alive and so active and so full of life with everything before that. it was very difficult. >> you know, you struggled with
6:21 am

we will dive right back in our conversation with clint hill, jackie kennedy's former secret service agent. you will see the man here in black on the back of the car. he jumped in to save the president 50 years ago in dallas. clint, we were just talking about the conspiracy theories. you hear that the mafia was involved or the cia was involved. was that the case or was this just lee harvey oswald? >> those conspiracy theories are just theories. there is not fact involved in any one of them. there are ones that come up every day. they are foolish. the facts point to one shooter

and three shots fired that day. they all came from the same location. fired through the same rifle by the same individual, lee harvey oswald. i don't think there is any question in that anymore. >> so many people are fascinated by the kennedys. you have this rare privilege of knowing them. what can you tell us about this family that maybe we don't know? what fascinates us so much about them? >> well, i think the reason the people have such a great interest in them is they could relate to them because of their age. they were very young. they replaced the eisenhower administration, where eisenhower was a grandfather figure. when kennedy was elected, he was 43. they had a young daughter. everybody could relate to that. also, they were very active and
6:28 am
very attractive as a couple. they lived a lifestyle that most people wished they could live. so i think that people really, really wanted to be part of that scene. also, the president was one of the individuals who when he talked to you, even if you were in a crowd and he was just shaking hands, when he got to you, you knew he was talking to you and you alone because of the way he did things. it was very appealing situation. >> you know, we know that jackie's pink suit is being preserved. i understand that you burned the suit you were wearing that day. why? >> that's correct. why? i didn't want that to linger on. it was saturated in blood. i thought it best that it be completely destroyed so nobody would have anything to hock or
