What the New JFK Witness Said Before
Paul Landis, the retired Secret Service agent, has told his story in different ways.
Paul Landis, the retired Secret Service agent who says he found an intact bullet in President John F. Kennedy’s limousine after the assassination of the 35th president in Dallas 60 years ago, has spoken out before.
His remarkable claim, reported by the New York Times and detailed in a Vanity Fair article, calls into question the official theory of JFK’s murder. To put the matter simply, if Landis’s story is true, JFK was hit by gunfire from two shooters, proof of a conspiracy.
But is Landis’s account true and accurate?
His story is consistent with other evidence. For example, the autopsy doctors who examined JFK said he had a shallow wound in the back. Landis believes the bullet he found caused that wound and then fell out of the president’s body.
Landis has told his story before, and it has changed over time, as he admits. That doesn’t mean he isn’t telling the truth as he understands it. It means his story needs corroboration.
Here’s what Landis told the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas in 2016. (h/t Fred Litwin).
