Skip to comments.Controversial JFK Documentary Theory: President Was Killed by Accidental Secret Service Shot

ReelzChannel is getting back into the Kennedy family business, and once again likely to make some waves. In November, the network that aired the Emmy-winning 2011 miniseries "The Kennedys" will debut "JFK: The Smoking Gun," a new documentary offering the theory that John F. Kennedy was killed, not by Lee Harvey Oswalds rifle, but by the friendly-fire bullet of an inexperienced Secret Service agent.
"The only possible gun that could have been in that area is that Secret Service gun. So the finding is that it was an accidental discharge. Nobody's claiming anybody did anything wrong. But at the time, in the middle of the Cold War ... remember, it wasn't a time that the U.S. government would have liked to admit a botched security detail in the most important mission they had."
According to Hubbard's explanation of the docudrama, the timeline of the events of Nov. 22, 1963, will go something like this:
After Lee Harvey Oswald fired an initial shot at the Kennedy motorcade in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, a Secret Service agent named George Hickey responded. Hickey, an inexperienced agent who had never been on follow-up car duty, grabbed his AR-15 Secret Service rifle and, while standing in the back of the car that was behind the Kennedy vehicle in the motorcade, fired a shot, he hoped, towards the enemy fire. But the car he was riding in suddenly lurched forward, and, the theory suggests, Hickey's hand faltered, sending his bullet towards the presidents head. Oswald had fired a second shot that also hit Kennedy, but it was not necessarily the shot that fatally wounded JFK, according to the theory.

That may be the dumbest theory yet.
Okay... so where did the 5.56 rounds disappear to? Do we have multiple “magic bullets” in this theory?
Yep, totally stupid.
President Hubbard states. George Hickey had an accident take place when a gun discharged in his hands. Anybody who’s around firearms at all knows that guns do accidentally go off.”
Well, the media is always telling us that guns kill people, but who knew that an uppity gun decided to kill JFK! If they had told us that sooner, we might have passed “reasonable gun control” already! /s
As someone that owns just about every book ever written about the Kennedy assassination, I agree.
Can’t they even wait until November, the annual loonbat awakening of Kennedy assassination conspiracists before posting this baloney?
This theory isn’t the least bit new, nor is it ‘news’.
What really happened was that an intergalactic jack rabbit from the planet tickywicky, launched it’s horrible front teeth camoflaged as a cotton tail at Gov. Connely and missed and hit Kennedy.
I have always wondered about that pristine bullet they allegedly found on the stretcher outside the operating room that Kennedy was on when they brought him into Parkland Hospital.
And the secret service agent was firing from a UFO that had just landed on the grassy knoll.
Obviously killed by trained assassins in a cross filed of fire to assure that they would kill him. Anyone who believes it was Oswald is easily brainwashed...very easily.
A friend of mine told me that JFK was kept on life support at a hospital in Dallas for a long time after the killing. My friend was a nurse who worked at that hospital. He was X-military.
There was talk that the re interment was to put his brains back in the coffin. My friend said his body was not in the coffin to begin with.
Thanks....typo btw, cross field of fire...oops.
Unless the Secret Service was equipped with 6.5mm Mannlicher Carcano rifles. I call BS on this one.
The first shot hit Kennedy’s spine. His elbows were pulled back and up in a common reflex reaction to spinal damage. The bullet put a hole in the knot in Kennedy’s tie, and continued on to hit Connally. That shot killed Kennedy.
The second missed.
The third hit Kennedy in the head.
“Obviously killed by trained assassins in a cross filed of fire to assure that they would kill him. Anyone who believes it was Oswald is easily brainwashed...very easily.”
As opposed to those that are easily brainwashed by Oliver Stone movies?
Oswald’s first shot was a miss, the second round was the bullet that hit Kennedy in the high part of his back paralyzing him passing through and causing Gov. Connally’s wounds, then finally the third shot hit Kennedy in the head.
What is a long time? Couldn’t have been too long, because his body was back in DC by midnight.
