Was Kennedy shot by multiple people? After 60 years, new details of the assassination of the US president are revealed

Date: September 29, 2023 Time: 06:39:58

Unexpected revelations are like an attempt to make money by speculating on a popular topic and increasing circulation.


On November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Secret Service agent Paul Landis, guarding John F. Kennedy’s family, drove behind the president of the United States’ limousine, standing on the running board of the escort car . He states that he still cannot forget the events of that day. 60 years later, Landis, who was in the thick of the situation, wrote a book, “The Last Witness,” in which he questions the details of the official version, once again generating controversy about the second shooter.

The official version of the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald was the only shooter is based on the so-called “magic bullet” theory. Apparently, one of the three bullets fired by Oswald managed to hit John Kennedy through a convoluted trajectory and then inflicted several wounds on Texas Governor John Connally, who was sitting in front, miraculously hitting the back, chest, wrist and thigh. at the same time, and remain practically undeformed. Experts have determined through modeling that this is theoretically possible, but no one has yet provided convincing evidence of the presence of a second shooter.

However, Landis, who suddenly spoke, revealed a detail that once again resurrects the version of the murderer’s accomplice. That same “magic bullet” was found in the hospital, on Governor Connally’s stretcher, and, as was believed all along, it left his body during transport. This fact served as the starting point for the entire theory. The witness agent claims that he found this bullet in Kennedy’s seat in the car and took it as evidence to give to the doctors, but in the confusion he left the wounded president on a stretcher, and from there it somehow migrated to the governor’s body. . Landis suggests that the bullet hit Kennedy in the back, but did not penetrate deeply, so he jumped out before the president’s body was removed from the limousine.

“If what he says is true, which I am inclined to believe, it will probably reopen the question of the second shooter,” said attorney James Robenalt, who has studied the notorious murder in detail. As noted, the new testimony from Landis, 88, contradicts reports he wrote immediately after the tragedy. Furthermore, in those rare interviews he gave previously, not a word was said about the bullet either. The Warren Commission, for some unknown reason, did not question him as one of the eyewitnesses. The American himself explains that he wrote the reports in a state of shock, so he could have overlooked details, and then was afraid to admit that he had moved evidence. Furthermore, the assassination that occurred and the subsequent suffering of the Kennedy family, which unfolded before the eyes of the young agent, undermined his psychological state. Six months later he retired from the Secret Service and tried to immerse himself as little as possible in the details of that day.

Only after reading the book “Six Seconds in Dallas” with the version about several shooters, which an acquaintance gave him in 2014, Landis began to think about the contradiction of his memories with the official version.

After several years of discussions with friends and experts, he decided to tell everything he saw in his memoirs, which will be published in October of this year. The fact that Landis has remained silent for so many years and has now decided to speak out does not speak in his favor: the unexpected revelations seem like an attempt to make money by speculating on a popular topic and increasing its circulation. But why wait until old age? Everyone who loved him had long since trampled and made money from the events of that day. But, as a New York Times correspondent who spoke with Landis before the book’s release notes, he doesn’t seem like a crazy old man. The eyewitness to one of the most notorious and mysterious murders of the 20th century assures that he does not impose any conclusions and writing the book was an “enormous emotional relief” for him.
