Single Bullet Theory/ Magic Bullet? ► ► The single bullet theory (also known as the magic bullet theory by the majority of critics and conspiracy theorists) is the crucial element of the Warren Commission theory that only one assassin was responsible for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy
The “pristine” bullet
Warren Commission ► The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known unofficially as The Warren Commission, was established on November 29, 1963, by Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the assassination of the U.S. President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. It concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing Kennedy. The Commission's findings have since proved extremely controversial and have frequently been challenged.
Warren Commission continued… ► The commission's determination was that: ► it was likely that all injuries inside the limousine were caused by only two bullets, and thus one shot likely missed the motorcade, but it could not determine which of the three. (The 1979 agreed that two shots caused all the injuries.) ► it was likely that all injuries inside the limousine were caused by only two bullets, and thus one shot likely missed the motorcade, but it could not determine which of the three. (The 1979 House Select Committee on Assassinations agreed that two shots caused all the injuries.) ► the first shot to hit anyone struck President Kennedy in the upper back, exited out his throat, and likely continued on to cause all of Governor John Connally's injuries, ► the second shot to hit anyone fatally struck Kennedy in the head 4.8 to 5.6 seconds later.
