F.A.Q. 2: The "Amateur" Imagery


Q: “What about the many private videos of the 9/11 events showing the plane crash?”

A: All the alleged “Amateur” stills and videos depicting crucial moments of the day (“planes”/“tower collapses”) are forgeries - and demonstrably so. The “9/11 plotters” manufactured a large image-pool to be attributed to private cameramen for three main purposes :

The skeptics argue that “too many videos of the airplane were captured, therefore all cannot be fake ...” Too many indeed: there are a simply ludicrous amount of “lucky” shots. In fact, the sheer amount of existing 'airplane' images is grossly absurd in itself: We now have more than 45 “amateur videos” (some of which were released - inexplicably - as late as June 2008!). We also have at least 10 still pictures depicting alleged “Flight 175” “in its very last second of flight”:

For in-depth info and sourcing of the above pictures, see: WTC Crash research by Killtown.

Here’s where any rational-minded person should stop and ponder: What are the odds that so many amateur cameramen would capture a clear shot of an unexpected 550mph airplane[1] in its very last second of flight - both 'plane' and towers nicely framed - with no apparent motion blur of either? There are, for instance, no such precedents in the history of motorsport photography: no speedway crash has ever been captured by 55+ cameramen, in crowded arenas where hundreds of lenses are aimed right at the action. On most occasions, only a handful of professionals will capture an image sharp enough for publication.

THE 45 “AMATEUR” VIDEOS: A Formidable Fakery Festival

1) CLONED IMAGERY: As we compare the “amateur videos”, one by one, even the layman will notice their obvious falseness. Many simply turn out to be different versions (cropped/warped/seam-carved) of a single scenery. The shots compared below are purportedly authored by five different cameramen. The sheer goofiness of the 9/11 image fakery crew is, in fact, breathtaking:

Naudet and CBS

Please note: In the ’Wolfgang Staehle’ image, which is the only alleged still picture of the first “plane impact”, the explosion graphics are placed way too low on the building.

2) IMPOSSIBLE PHYSICS: Other “amateur” shots depict the actual impact of the "airplane" on the tower façade: The aluminum airframe is seen integrally penetrating the steel tower with no deceleration – without as much as a rear aileron breaking off. This is, of course, utterly absurd and makes a joke of the laws of physics. This ‘shortcut compromise’ was chosen by the fakery crew for obvious reasons: More realistic forgeries (with many bits and pieces shredding at impact) would have required vastly superior computing power in order to simulate convincingly all the various viewing angles of the “planecrash”.

3) CONFLICTING VISUALS: The rest of the alleged “amateur” shots disqualify each other by the way of irreconcilable discrepancies and aberrations. All kinds of parameters simply fail to add up as one compares the different shots (all of which – of course – are supposed to depict the same “airplane”) : trajectories, angles, pitch, yaw, speeds, lighting, hues - to name a few. Here's a trajectory comparison between two well-known videos - the last 7 seconds of "Flight175"...according to two different 'cameramen':

About 90% of the alleged authors of these “amateur videos” are people linked to the newsmedia and the film/video industry. A mere coincidence? Not likely. A more rational hypothesis is that they were chosen as credible scapegoats should any of those forgeries be publicly exposed - since all could be plausibly suspected of faking pictures for personal fame and gain. So why don’t we have a single authentic video of the crucial 9/11 events? Most likely, electromagnetic technology (commonly used in war zones to jam the enemy’s electronics) prevented any private footage being recorded at the time of the tower strikes. In fact, several electronic disruptions occured in NYC on the day. See: Visual Control of 9/11.

Photojournalist for New York Daily News. Took picture of South Tower exploding right underneath it. No plane is seen in picture. He says he did not see any plane.

[1] 550 mph at 700 feet above sea level is a physical, aerodynamic and mechanical impossibility for any passenger airplane. In fact, as noted by qualified pilots and engineers, both the steep roll angles (banking) and speeds seen on the various available 'plane' videos are totally unrealistic. Various official sources set the speed of "Flight175" at around 550mph Incidentally, the winged JASSM AGM-158 precision missile travels at 550 mph. See: Eye-witnesses

The morning TV broadcasts of airplane graphics cannot be rendered into retro-active physical existence by any number of alleged amateurs “capturing” the impossible event, nor by pseudo-scientific articles published by the increasingly desperate efforts of the 9/11 cover-up crew. Return to text
