EXT. THE WHITE HOUSE - SUNSET
Jack Kennedy stands on the balcony overlooking the Rose Garden fountain, a soothing sight before him: prisms of lighted water, the white spike of the Washington Monument, auto headlights flickering along Executive Avenue. He begins to feel a deep seated goodness within. From the bedroom behind him, through white chiffon curtains, float the chords of Sinatra’s “All I Need Is the Girl,” and JFK can make out every note…
Behind the curtains moves the shadow of a tall woman who is not his wife. She is deeply connected to the CIA, and has just given the President a dose of LSD. She is “brainwashing” him under the direction of a Harvard psychologist, Dr. Timothy Leary, whose colleagues are all taking CIA money, and who has himself designed a personality test used by the CIA…
