Also, if Jackie was dead...why did it not occur to sam and al at any point that they might have been there to save her? They only ever talked about saving JFK.
Most of your answers lie right there. Sam and Al both are making the assumption that his mission is to save JFK. Since the only history we know is the assination of JFK as viewers it's a logical conclusion for us as well. The twist is finding out at the end that in the original history that Sam came from Jackie had also died. One can assume that Al did know this but never gave it considerations since saving the life of the President would most likely be considered the more important thing to do. There could have also been the assumption of a domino effect - if the life of JFK is saved then so would the life of Jackie.
