Former Secret Service agent Paul Landis, who was present mere feet away from President John F. Kennedy during his tragic assassination on November 22, 1963, is stepping forward with his account of the events, challenging the long-standing official government narrative. At the age of 88, Landis shares his whole story publicly for the first time, disclosing his doubts about the previously held lone gunman theory.
Throughout his life, Landis firmly believed that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination. However, recent conversations with key figures such as former Secret Service Director Lewis Merletti and author-lawyer James Robenalt have made him reconsider his stance. Landis’s detailed narrative will be unveiled in his forthcoming memoir, “The Final Witness,” scheduled for release on October 10.
One of the most significant aspects of Landis’s revelations is the potential to challenge the Warren Commission’s central thesis. This commission, appointed by the president, concluded in 1964 that a single bullet struck President Kennedy’s back and exited through his throat before hitting Texas Gov. John Connally. This theory, often called the “magic bullet,” was partly based on a bullet found on a stretcher that was believed to be used by Connally at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
However, Landis claims that he discovered the bullet in the presidential limousine, placed it next to Kennedy on his stretcher to prevent souvenir hunters from tampering with evidence, and believes it may have been transferred to Connally’s gurney when the stretchers were moved together.
Robenalt, who assisted Landis in recounting his memories, suggests that if Landis’s account is accurate, it could reopen the possibility of a second shooter and question Oswald’s ability to reload his rifle so quickly.
Intriguingly, Landis’s version differs from his initial written statements after the assassination, where he did not mention finding the bullet and reported only hearing two shots instead of three, as concluded by the Warren Commission. Landis explains that he was in shock when he filed those reports and didn’t consider mentioning the bullet at the time.
While Landis’s account may raise questions and spark further investigation into the Kennedy assassination, it also serves as a testament to the complexity and uncertainty surrounding historical events, particularly those as significant and tragic as JFK’s assassination. His decision to come forward after six decades suggests a desire to ensure the historical record is as accurate as possible rather than seeking attention or personal gain.
