JFK Assassination: Secret Service Might Have Been Involved

The JFK assassination is coming up on its 50th anniversary, and as the date approaches several movies and documentaries will be popping up on television. One of the most intriguing is “JFK: The Smoking Gun”, which will debut on ReelzChannel this fall. In it, retired police detective Colin McLaren says he’s gone through four years worth of evidence regarding the shooting and studied ballistics evidence with Bonar Menninger, author of “Mortal Error: The Shot that Killed JFK”. The two of them agree that Secret Service Agent George Hickey–who was riding in the car behind Kennedy’s limo–fired the second shot in retaliation to Oswald’s, but inexperience and the movement of the car made him misfire, striking Kennedy in the head.

“What we’re saying is that we believe it was a tragic accident in the heat of that moment. We don’t suggest that he was in any way involved in a conspiracy,” McLaren told the Television Critics Association on Sunday. If what he says is true, then Kennedy might likely have survived Oswald’s shot.

With the aid of modern forensic technology, McLaren and Menninger have delved deep into the events of that day and say they waited decades for several documents from the investigation to be released in the ’90s.

“Our documentary is going to be the only one that has opened the case forensically and looked at the evidence from the beginning and examined everything that happened that day in Dealey Plaza,” director Michael Prupas said.

Hickey passed away two years ago, and since Oswald was killed before he could stand trial, Mclaren and Menninger have lost key people who would know what really happened that day. But they insist they aren’t out to initiate a smear campaign against either Hickey or the Secret Service as an organization.

“I’m sure that [Hickey] suffered greatly from this,” Menninger said. “The fact that he passed on — maybe it’s time to talk about it.”

Top Rated White Papers and Resources
  • Everyone Knows

    Everyone knows the government killed Kennedy so we could stay in Vietnam and many people profited off of Vietnam. People are just afraid to admit it because if they admitted it, then the government doing something like 9/11 as a pretext to war and even more profit is not out of the question.

    People know there is something wrong in this country. They can feel it. They are just afraid.

  • Just Sayin’

    Oswald was a good shot! He alone committed this murder.

    • Reality

      That is not what his military records show. The man couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.

  • Just Sayin’

    Since we are re-hashing stuff that absolutely doesn’t matter anymore, maybe we should all blame Joe Kennedy for making a deal with the devil! You make a deal with the devil and he not only owns your soul, but your entire family’s.

  • JamesFiles

    Maybe the secret service guy, Hickie, was cleaning his gun and it went off accidentally. Geez, what a steaming pile. Oh, that’s right he’s dead now, let’s create an false story around him because he can’t deny any of it or provide his side of the so-called story. Just like dying-of-cancer Ruby killing Oswald, especially when Oswald started claiming that he was a patsy. You can say what you want when the witness is dead. The mob knows all about that.

    Two key documents:

    Withdrawal from Vietnam (Oct. 11, 1963). JFK signs NSAM 263, an order to withdraw 1,000 troops out of roughly 16,000 Americans stationed in Vietnam by the end of 1963, with the complete withdrawal by the end of 1965.

    Escalation in Vietnam (Nov. 26, 1963): Signed by President Lyndon Johnson four days after JFK’s death, NSAM 273 succeeded NSAM 263 and ordered the planning of increased activity in Vietnam.

      War is big money.Just like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were.Nothing`s changed.

      Now we have a never ending war on terror.So called homeland security
      is a giant cash cow that will go on forever.Not too mention turning the country into a police state with all of us under a microscope.

  • Ross

    This is idiotic. How does a gun pointed 180 degrees behind the president “accidentally” hit him when the car lurches

  • Mark

    Of course, here goes another story to sell either a book or a movie. And of course all the paranoia cases believe it without considering any logic behind it.

    First of all, where is the documentation from the Secret Service agent that states he pulled his revolver and fired? It should have appeared in reports of the incident.

    Second, where are all the eye-witnesses to the agent firing his weapon? Several people MUST have seen it.

    Third, why did an agent assigned to driving feel the need to stray from his duties and take a shot? He obviously knew there were countless other law enforcement agents and fellow Secret Service agents on the scene. His job in such a circumstance would have been to get the heck out of there in a hurry, and not to try to do a job that dozens of other could have done more effectively.

    Fourth, why would a trained agent take a pot-shot at an unknown target, a great distance away for any accuracy from a pistol, from a moving vehicle, with the president in such close proximity?

    NONE of the points of this new case make any sense, but the anti-government nut cases and paranoia population will embrace it because it fails to cater to anyone above their IQ level or comfort zone.

    Another major reason why I don’t believe the alternate JFK theories: which one do I pick? There are DOZENS of alternate theories behind the JFK shooting and they ALL claim to be the one that’s correct and truthful, and all put forward by people who claim to be the only one in the world smart enough to know the truth.

    Sorry folks, you ALL can’t be right. You ALL can’t be the only one smart enough to know the truth. Just because you think something is “obvious” doesn’t necessarily make it so. Maybe it isn’t so obvious to people who have the power of logic and can reason things through without letting paranoia and opinion get in the way.

    JFK took a head shot from the FRONT.
    Oswald is a Patsy.
    jews had JFK whacked for 3 reasons:
    1)removal of the issuance of currency from The Federal Reserve, the root of jew power in The USA.
    2)JFK’s insistence on Zionist jew organizations being registered foreign agents, ending their purchase of politicians.
    3)JFK stood in the way of Israel having nuclear weapons.
    Shabbos Goyim CIA hitters did the dirty work, as usual.

  • chester

    Not sure who actually killed JFK but I am convinced that it was NOT Oswald.

  • Cindy

    Caroline Kennedy said, “Nothing will bring my dad back.” That’s very true, but we as a nation have a right to know the truth and I don’t think we’ll ever know.

  • john perry

    For years I studied just about everything written on this case and for a very long while believed hat there was far more to the lone assassin theory than we were being led to believe.But after more than careful research and the more than obvious condition of Oswald’s state of mind, it was rather convincing that he acted alone and on what I must call a spur of the moment decision. He had been rejected by the USSR (where he thought he would be treated as a hero), lost the USA (They didnt recognize his “genius”) and hen Cuba saw him as a crackpot and wanted nothing to do with him. Two nights before he 22nd he asked for a reconciliation with his wife and she turned him down. Thus, the usual suicide act: return of the wedding ring, leaving what money he had, and a nihilistic act that was to “destroy” the world along with his own end. It would be interesting to see JFK’s death as a monstrous conspiracy, but it wasn’t.It was the simple act of JFK’s death at the hands of one of life’s major failures. I once had John Fowles tell me that he thought it was Oswald’s “Nemo” that lay behind his act–his sense of Nothingness.I believe that this was indeed what it was.A tragedy brought about my an absolute non-entity with a gun.

    • @John

      What is more likely?

      A. A spur of the moment decision by a suicidal man who did not have the skills necessary to kill the President?

      B. People with all the skills necessary who would profit greatly off of Kennedy’s death and who had the time to carefully plan and adjust the parade route so as to ensure that ideal conditions were present for success?

      The shots that killed Kennedy are difficult for today’s world class riflemen under ideal situations. I find it very hard to believe a suicidal man with the weight of the world on his soldiers, who was not an excellent marksman (look at his military records), and using a cheap used rifle, could successfully make those shots. Have you ever been around a suicidal person? Motor coordination and mental dexterity is not at their peak with a suicidal person. To put it in layman’s terms: that is like taking an average high school quarterback, who hasn’t played in years, and starting him for the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

      I think it is easy for people to accept that a “lone crazy person” killed Kennedy, than the government because the lone crazy person is not a threat to anyone. The lone crazy person is random. A government that kills its own President, on the other hand, is a threat to everyone. The action is calculated and implies that there is a hidden agenda within this country. An agenda that may be alive and well today.

        Thank you John and I also read President Kennedy was told by his advisors to not come to Dallas but he just would not here of it…so trusting almost as though the heart of a child and look where it put him and it always puzzled me why LBJ only by his choice wanted to stay in office just that one term????no one can get away from the conscience no matter how hard you try!

    Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
    Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
    Everybody knows that the war is over
    Everybody knows the good guys lost
    Everybody knows the fight was fixed
    The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
    That’s how it goes
    Everybody knows

    Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
    Everybody knows that the captain lied
    Everybody got this broken feeling
    Like their father or their dog just died

    Everybody talking to their pockets
    Everybody wants a box of chocolates
    And a long stem rose
    Everybody knows

    Well will say this one last thing i live fifteen minutes down the main highway I-30 that take you smack into coming and going into the whole area all the time and out of all the aura or whatever there is that lingers still. Nothing takes that cup until you go to Parkland where I go for medical treatment and into those doors and past that ER it is just quite un-nerving even now, which is why they have decided( hollywood) to get in that hospital and do the new latest movie. They want to channel that actual presence of them wheeling him in there and try to get to the real bottom of what happened in there. I don’t know what happened in Parkland but i know something did you can still feel it, the hospital John Fitzgerald Kennedy DIED!

    Hilarity Clinton!!!
    It makes me laugh when I say it!
    Because she’s now rich
    after her husband stole an election.
    She can cause another waco
    killing untold children.
    Socialist democrats think it be okay
    as long they are unarmed and not theirs.

  • glenn

    Oswald killed kennedy, the evidence got messed up coz people were running round like kids after a fight. Oswald was a decent shot, bullets do all kinds of weird stuff once they enter a body.
    People just love conspiracies and link things together to form patterns even when there are none. Plus there’s a tendency to glamourise crimes. Jack the Ripper, few people want to accept he was just an anonymous nut or that Elizabeth Short was probably killed by either a complete stranger or her then boyfriend Red Manly, who was an industrial and construction tools salesman with access to some heavy tools and construction sites
