New JFK documentary alleges there WAS a second shooter in the assassination… and he was a Secret Service agent who shot the president by ACCIDENT

Many conspiracy theorists unhappy with the official account of the assassination of John F. Kennedy have pointed to evidence they believe shows that the president was shot twice, from different directions.

Now a new documentary has come up with a new twist on the conspiracy theory, claiming that a Secret Service agent was the man who fired that shot… by accident.

JFK: The Smoking Gun claims that George Hickey, a Secret Service man riding in the car behind Kennedy, accidentally fired his weapon on November 22, 1963.

It alleges that a cover-up was then carried out to save the blushes of the agency whose main role is to protect serving and former U.S. leaders – leaving the many loose ends that have long raised suspicions.

It is said that as much as 75 per cent of the American public do not believe the official account of the Kennedy assassination.

The new documentary is based on the work of Colin McLaren, a veteran Australian police detective who has undertaken a four-year investigation into the killing.

His theories are based on the work of Howard Donahue, who spent two decades probing the assassination and whose work was presented in the book Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK, by Bonar Menninger.

Both Mr Menninger and Mr McLared spoke yesterday about the film at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles, California.

Central to their case is the claim that Agent Hickey and his Secret Service colleagues had been out partying the night before Kennedy’s motorcade drove through Dallas.

To compound the problems the hungover agent faced, McLaren says he has found evidence that Hickey had not been properly trained to use the AR-15 gun he was carrying that morning. ‘It was his first time in the follow car, his first time holding the assault weapon he was using,’ the Huffington Post reported McLaren as saying.

The theory is that as the assassin opened fire, Hickey grabbed his own gun. But when the whole motorcade shunted to a halt, the agent was jolted by the sudden stop and accidentally pulled the trigger – firing a bullet straight at the back of Kennedy’s head.

Mr McLaren said he believes Agent Hickey’s AR-15 was loaded with different from the ammunition used by Lee Harvey Oswald, who the Warren Commission declared in 1964 to be the lone gunman in the assassination. That, he claims, explains what they believe are the different ballistic profiles of the two bullets that struck Kennedy.

Oswald was himself assassinated before he could stand trial over the killing.

Mr Menninger insisted that they do not believe that Agent Hickey intentionally fired at Kennedy. Rather, the Huffington Post reported him as saying, ‘this was a tragic accident in the heat of the moment.’

But the pair do allege that the government moved swiftly, with the help of Kennedy’s brother Robert, to cover up the Secret Service’s involvement and save the agency from embarrassment.

Agent Hickey, who died two years ago,  said in his witness statement given the day after Kennedy’s assassination that after he heard the gunfire he did indeed rise to his feet and load and cock the AR-15, but did not fire it.

He said: ‘At the end of the last report I reached to the bottom of the car and picked up the AR 15 rifle, cocked and loaded it, and turned to the rear.

‘At this point the cars were passing under the over-pass and as a result we had left the scene of the shooting. I kept the AR 15 rifle ready as we proceeded at a high rate of speed to the hospital.’

Mr Menninger’s book, which was published in 1992, claims that it was a shot from Agent Hickey’s gun that actually killed the president, citing evidence which appeared to show that Kennedy was hit by two different kinds of bullet.

AR-15 rounds are encased in thin copper and tend to break up upon impact, as did the shot that struck Kennedy in the head. A 6.5mm Mannlicher-Carcano bullet of the kind known to have been fired by Oswald, on the other hand, would not break up when it hit the target.

Agent Hickey sued Mr Menninger in 1995 over the allegations contained in Moral Error, but the case was dismissed after a judge ruled that he had taken too long after the book’s publication to file his case.

Rufus W. Youngblood, the agent in charge of the Secret Service detail protecting Vice President Lyndon Johnson on the day, also denied suggestions that Agent Hickey fired his weapon.

In an interview with the Georgia Tech alumni magazine in 1992, just prior to Mortal Error’s publication, he labelled the theory ‘ridiculous’.

‘I don’t think any Secret Service guy fired his weapon down there that day. I could look ahead and see [George] Hickey, an agent in the president’s follow-up car, who had the AR-15 [rifle]. He stood up and looked, but didn’t see anything to fire at,’ he said.

JFK: The Smoking Gun will be broadcast on the Reelz Channel on November 3. A spokesman for the network said: What makes McLaren’s investigation different than those that came before it is the fact that he had all the evidence, facts and eyewitness testimony from fifty years ago as well as modern forensic technology.

‘McLaren’s findings are a far cry from the fanciful conspiracy theories that usually surround this assassination.

‘His case is methodically constructed from simple logic and available evidence using time-tested investigative techniques to solve the crime; including key archival photographic evidence, medical reports and bullet science.’

    The Rothschilds rule the US through their Foundations, the Council on Foreign relations and the Federal Reserve System. Expensive “political campaigns” are routinely conducted, with carefully screened candidates who are pledged to the program of the World Order… as in “offer they cannot refused” and should they deviate from the program they will face serious consequences (lightly put) if one should go against them.
    On June 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy ordered the printing of Treasury dollar bills instead of Federal Reserve notes (Executive Order 11110). He also ordered that once these had been printed, the Federal Reserve notes would be withdrawn, and the Treasury bills put into circulation. A few months later (November 22. 1963) he was killed in broad daylight in front of the whole world. Upon assumption of power, his successor, President Lyndon Johnson, immediately reversed JFK’s executive order to switch to Treasury bills from Federal Reserve notes…showing very clearly the power of the elite.

    FBI memo, photo link Bush Sr to JFK Dallas murder scene

    “Actually, however, Congress was being manipulated. This is how the war machine operates. Behind the seeming concern for national security are the busy men with the bulging briefcases hurrying form the Pentagon over to Capitol Hill, the tight-mouthed men hurrying from CIA headquarters over to the Pentagon; it is eventually a game. It is an operation designed to produce for the warfare sector and its military hardware supporters billions of dollars annually and unlimited power in the affairs of the nation.”

    “Since the end of World War II, the United States has spent a thousand billion dollars—one trillion dollars—furnished by the American people, who have been colonized by these men and their hunger for power. Could the CIA kill a President to keep such an operation going? Kings have been beheaded for infinitely less.” New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, “Heritage of Stone” (1970)

    Dallas—March 23, 2006—TomFlocco.com—A November 29, 1963 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit memo unearthed in 1977-78 proves that former President George H. W. Bush was a member of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the recipient of a full briefing on the day after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 when Bush was 39 years old, despite his protestations to the contrary.

    I believe it was the “Mob” that took JFK out. You do not bite the hand that feeds you. It was the Chicago vote that elected JFK. Joe Kennedy & the Chicago were linked through Bootlegging activities back in the day.

      There was a Millionaire, Clint Murchison, Dallas, TX that did have his hand in it; yet, he was ignored, and never investigated.

      JFKs assassination was a military ambush from start to finish, No way in hell could the Mafia have eliminated the protection for the President, (that happened) the Mob could not have told the 112th military division at fort Sam Houston to stand down over the protest of the unit commander . It was not known that the Mafia was working with the CIA until the Church Committee exposed that in 1975 . Could the Mob have got the Secret Service agents drunk the night before the assassination later that day ? NO .

    Yes, yes, JFK’s wealth began with his father being a bootlegger…that is no secret. He knew great wealth but he also believed in the American people and their right to attain their own wealth.
    It is believed JFK’s Speech about “secret societies” is what motivated his assassination.

      It was a CIA agent who was also the driver who shot president Kennedy then gave Mrs. Kennedy the fifth. That’s why Jacques Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis for protection.

    I had a shocking experience when I came home from Oceanside, CA (Husband was in the Marine Corp at Camp Pendleton).
    He had family in Dallas; so we drove from Ft. Worth to Dallas so that I could meet the rest of the family. His uncle lived in Highland Park, Dallas ( a wealthy area). We hadn’t been in the house 5 minutes when he retrieved a photo out of his safe.

    It was a photo of Oswald (time and date stamped) standing at the “foot of the building” he supposedly shot Kennedy from. The photo was to be his “Get out of jail free card.”
    Oswald DID NOT SHOOT KENNEDY.
