- "Once the target has been downed, either by Oswald or Z., use PE1 to stage a distraction."
- ―A member of Abstergo Industries in a message to an associate, 1963.[src]
Oswald was a sleeper agent who had willingly subjected himself to various thought repression and reform techniques, eventually losing memory of even working for the Templars. As the main gunman in the Kennedy assassination, he was backed by Abraham Zapruder as the second gunman, and William Greer as Kennedy's driver, another Templar agent and Secret Service personnel who was trained in the use of an Apple of Eden by Abstergo Industries. In the confusion after the assassination, Greer was able to steal Kennedy's Apple of Eden.
