Secret Service Agent's Revelation Challenges JFK Assassination Theories

01:14 13.09.2023

In a shocking twist to the long-standing narrative surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, former Secret Service agent Paul Landis has come forward with new information that casts doubt on the findings of the Warren Commission. Landis, who was present during the assassination in 1963, has now expressed uncertainty about the lone gunman theory and suggests that there may have been additional shooters involved.

For years, Landis had believed that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing Kennedy. However, he recently revealed that his perspective began to shift as he noticed discrepancies between the Warren Commission's conclusions and his own recollection of the events that unfolded that fateful day in Dallas. Speaking to the New York Times, Landis admitted, "I'm beginning to doubt myself. Now, I begin to wonder."

Landis' doubts stem from his experiences on the day of the assassination, which contradict his initial statement given just after the shooting. While he had always dismissed conspiracy theories, Landis felt compelled to share what he witnessed and did on that day. His testimony contradicts the Warren Commission's assertion that a single bullet struck Kennedy and then passed through him, hitting Governor John Connally as well. The Commission famously referred to this theory as the "magic bullet."

Landis claims that he discovered the bullet that later became known as the "magic bullet" on the limousine seat behind where Kennedy was seated after the president was brought to the hospital. Realizing the significance of this evidence, Landis made the decision to secure it. To prevent souvenir hunters from taking it, he entered the hospital and placed the bullet on Kennedy's stretcher, hoping it would aid doctors in understanding what had happened. Landis speculates that the bullet had lost velocity in Kennedy's back and became lodged in the limousine seat.

This revelation from Landis has led to renewed interest in the possibility of a second shooter and has prompted questions about the validity of the Warren Commission's conclusions. Landis has shared his account with prominent figures such as former Secret Service Director Lewis C. Merletti and lawyer James Robenalt, who have expressed belief in the veracity of his claims. Robenalt, in particular, argues that Landis' testimony challenges the central thesis of the Warren Report and raises doubts about the single-bullet theory.

Landis' upcoming memoir, titled "The Final Witness: A Kennedy Secret Service Agent Breaks His Silence After 60 Years," is expected to shed further light on his experiences and perspectives surrounding Kennedy's assassination. The book, set to be published on October 10th, promises to stir debate and potentially reopen the investigation into the tragic event that shook the nation nearly six decades ago.

As the public eagerly awaits the release of Landis' memoir, many anticipate that his revelations will prompt a reexamination of the evidence and lead to a broader discussion about the true circumstances of President Kennedy's untimely demise.
