A startling new discovery that has the potential to completely redefine the history of President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination involves fresh testimony and evidence that calls into question the widely discredited “magic bullet” idea. Paul Landis, a former Secret Service agent, recently broke his six-decade quiet to make a shocking revelation that casts doubt on the status quo and suggests there might be more shooters than one.

Paul Landis was standing next to President Kennedy on November 22, 1963, when his motorcade went into Dealey Plaza in Dallas, carrying First Lady Jackie Kennedy as well as Texas Governor John Connally Jr. and his spouse. Shots were fired, striking Governor Connally in the back and striking President Kennedy in the head and neck.

After the federal investigation by the Warren Commission, the general consensus for many years was that the President had been hit from behind, that a single bullet had emerged through his throat in front, and that Governor Connally had been hit. It was then dubbed the “magic bullet theory.”

The finding of a bullet on Governor Connally’s stretcher upon his arrival at Parkland Memorial Hospital following the massacre served as the cornerstone of this theory. This conclusion—that one gunshot could inflict such widespread harm—led to Lee Harvey Oswald’s conviction and fostered a plethora of conspiracy theories for more than sixty years.

But now, Paul Landis has provided an astounding narrative that refutes the conclusions of the Warren Commission. According to his account, he discovered a bullet embedded in the rear seat of President Kennedy’s presidential limousine. After the convoy arrived at the hospital, Landis claimed to have seen the bullet and placed it on the stretcher bearing the President. According to his idea, the bullet may have moved from Governor Connally’s stretcher to President Kennedy’s stretcher by some sort of collision.

This assertion suggests the potential of numerous shooters and bullets, as well as casting doubt on the “magic bullet” notion. Governor Connally could have been struck by a different bullet, potentially from above and behind, if the “pristine” bullet missed both Kennedy and Connally.

If Governor Connally was hit by a single bullet, as James Robenalt, a Cleveland lawyer and historian who conducted considerable study on the assassination and helped Paul Landis recollect his recollections, noted, it would imply that Lee Harvey Oswald was not able to fire both rounds so quickly.

Remarkably, a decade ago, Nurse Phyllis J. Hall, who was present in the Parkland Memorial Hospital emergency department following the shooting, gave interviews that seemed to corroborate Paul Landis’s assertions. Hall reported seeing a bullet wound close to the President’s head on the stretcher, where he lay dying. Her explanation of the enigmatic bullet fits extremely well with the FBI’s initial piece of evidence, referred to as “C1.” This was the bullet that was allegedly found on Governor Connally Jr.’s stretcher after it had fallen from a leg wound.

Nurse Hall’s testimony and her conviction that there were numerous gunmen add to Paul Landis’s account’s credibility. She had been afraid of harassment and reprisals for decades, so she had waited to share her experience.

Paul Landis’s disclosures have elicited more questions than answers, but they also highlight the ongoing fascination and mystery surrounding one of the most important incidents in American history: President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Researchers and historians are left to reevaluate the events of that fatal day in Dallas over six decades ago as the “magic bullet” notion is called into question, adding another level of complexity to the already intricate story.
