John F Kennedy's contemporary statement to Ted Robinson, a fellow PT skipper with him that night, about reporters concerning the sinking of PT 109 on 1 August 1943 in Blackett Strait:

    I am a nobody. But my father was ambassador to the Court of St. James' in England and I have a lot of experience with reporters. They are going to say, "How in the hell could this happen?" They're going to say it years after the war, in a nice well-lite room back in Miami Beach, writing a book, wanting to make $100,000.
    But what am I going to do? I'm going to put them in a perfectly dark room, just like it was in Blackett Strait. Then I am going to take their cameras and their flash bulbs and flash them in their face, just like we were blinded by lighting and gunfire. Then I am going to twist them around like how we maneuvered in position so we were all confused, and then I am going to pick up a chair and hit them with it and say 'now you figure it out, you son of a bitch'.
