Witness to JFK Assassination Speaks Out, Refutes Lone Gunman Narrative

'At this point, I’m beginning to doubt myself...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A man who witnessed the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy has broken his silence, explaining his experience of the fateful moment,  DYNUZ reported.

Paul Landis—a Secret Service agent who was just feet away from Kennedy when he was shot in Dallas, Texas, 60 years ago—acknowledged that the long accepted “lone gunman” theory of the assassination may have serious problems.

According to the official narrative, JFK was hit by two copper-jacketed 6.5 millimeter bullets, one of which hit the president from behind, exited through his throat, and continued to hit then-Texas Gov. John Connally, simultaneously wounding his back, chest, wrist and thigh.

The narrative also suggests that the bullet was found on Connally’s stretcher at the hospital after the shooting.

But Landis’s own account contradicts the above narrative. According to Landis, he found the bullet himself, lodged in the back of the seat behind where Kennedy was sitting.

He then took the bullet and put it next to the president on his stretcher. He told the New York Times in a recent interview that he removed the bullet in order to protect it from souvenir collectors.

“All the agents that were there were focused on the president,” he noted.

“This was all going on so quickly. And I was just afraid that — it was a piece of evidence, that I realized right away. Very important. And I didn’t want it to disappear or get lost. So it was, ‘Paul, you’ve got to make a decision,’ and I grabbed it.’”

Landis’s experience would suggest that the bullet struck JFK in the back, but did not penetrate deeply.

In his view, this may suggest that a second shooter could have been on the scene.

“At this point, I’m beginning to doubt myself,” he said, casting doubt on the official narrative. “Now I begin to wonder.”

Landis, 88, will describe his experience at length in his forthcoming memoir, The Final Witness, which will come out in October.

Last month in Cleveland, the former agent told a reporter that he has no political agenda, and simply wants to describe what he saw that day.

“There’s no goal at this point,” he said. “I just think it had been long enough that I needed to tell my story.”
