JFK Secret Service Agent Challenges Magic Bullet Assassination Theory


In a surprising turn of events, one of John F. Kennedy’s former Secret Service agents, Paul Landis, is refuting the long-standing magic bullet theory surrounding the President’s assassination. Landis, who was present in the car with JFK on that fateful day, has shared his account, shedding new light on the events that unfolded.

Key Takeaway

Former Secret Service agent Paul Landis disputes the magic bullet theory in the JFK assassination, stating that the first bullet to hit Kennedy did not go on to strike Governor Connally. This challenges the official conclusion of the Warren Commission and renews interest in the possibility of a second shooter.

Landis’ Testimony Contradicts Official Findings

Landis, whose story is detailed in an upcoming book to be released in October, recently spoke with The New York Times about his recollection of the assassination. He asserts that the first bullet that struck Kennedy was not the same one that went on to hit Governor Connally. This directly contradicts the official view held by the U.S. Government for decades, as determined by the Warren Commission.

Revisiting the Magic Bullet Theory

The magic bullet theory, which has been the subject of debate and skepticism for years, suggests that a single bullet caused significant damage to both JFK and Governor Connally. The theory was adopted by the Warren Commission after they recovered a bullet from the stretcher carrying Connally, assuming it was the same one that hit Kennedy.

Landis Recovers the First Sniper Bullet

Landis, however, claims to have personally recovered the first sniper bullet. According to his account, he found the bullet lodged in the backseat of the car behind where Kennedy was sitting. Recognizing its potential significance as evidence, Landis placed the bullet on Kennedy’s stretcher. It is believed that during the chaos, the bullet ricocheted off Kennedy’s stretcher and ended up hitting Connally.

A Second Shooter Theory Gains Ground

Landis’ revelation adds weight to the longstanding conspiracy theory of a second shooter. While the official narrative attributes all the shots to Lee Harvey Oswald, Landis’s account raises doubts about the lone gunman theory and invites further speculation.

The Enduring Intrigue of the Magic Bullet Theory

The magic bullet theory has captivated public imagination for decades, even making its way into popular culture, as famously spoofed on the television show ‘Seinfeld.’ The theory’s plausibility has been heavily questioned, leading many to question the accuracy of the Warren Commission’s conclusions.

Landis’s Growing Doubts

Remarkably, Landis, who had previously believed in Lee Harvey Oswald’s sole involvement in the assassination, is now beginning to doubt himself. He reflects, “At this point, I’m beginning to doubt myself. Now I begin to wonder.” These doubts serve as a powerful reminder that even those closest to the events of that day still grapple with unanswered questions.
