One in every of John F. Kennedy‘s Secret Service brokers — who was with him within the automobile that day — says the famed magic bullet concept does not fairly add up … based mostly on what he remembers.
Paul Landis shared his story with NYT, which may also be touched on in a brand new e-book of his due out in Oct. Right here, he recounts what he says occurred when the Prez was assassinated … insisting the primary bullet to hit JFK wasn’t the identical one to pierce Gov. Connally.
The rationale that has been the official view of the U.S. Authorities for many years now could be because of the findings of the Warren Fee — which investigated the President’s assassination, and concluded Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone shooter … arriving to this conclusion, partially, due to this single bullet that was recovered in Dallas within the quick aftermath.
Mainly, Kennedy first acquired shot by means of the throat … and virtually immediately, Gov. Connally was additionally hit — getting shot by means of his chest, wrist and thigh. Regardless of skeptics, for years, saying it was nearly unimaginable for that “magic bullet” to have precipitated a lot harm the way in which it did … Uncle Sam finally decided that is what occurred, and closed the case.
They landed on the magic bullet concept as a result of a kind of sniper projectiles was discovered within the stretcher that was carrying Connally … in order that they assumed it was the identical one which had hit Kennedy to kick off the assassination. That is not the way it went down, although … per Landis.
He claims he really recovered the primary sniper bullet himself, which he says was lodged within the backseat behind the place Kennedy sat. Landis says he snatched it as a result of he thought it was a key piece of proof, threw it on Kennedy’s stretcher — pondering docs would discover it — however presumes the bullet bounced off JFK’s stretcher and into Connally’s in all of the ruckus.
In different phrases, Landis is now saying that the primary bullet that struck Kennedy in all probability began and ended with him … and didn’t journey on to hit Connally. That lends credence to the notion of a second shooter — one thing conspiracy theorists have asserted for ages now.
The magic bullet concept has lengthy been the topic of hypothesis/intrigue — it was famously spoofed on ‘Seinfeld’ … completely capturing how ludicrous the lots have discovered it.
Apparently sufficient, Landis says that for a very long time — he was fairly positive LHO acted alone. However says this now … “At this level, I’m starting to doubt myself. Now I start to marvel.”
