Video and Photographic Evidence of the Largest Cover-Up In Modern Day History
By William Lewis
Whether or not you believe the official story surrounding the events of
September 11, 2001, it is impossible to walk away, having seen “911 In Plane
Site,” and still believe that terrorists wielding box cutters were the
masterminds behind the single most horrific terrorist act ever carried out
against the citizens of the United States of America.
The producers of “Power Hour Productions” and “BridgeStone Media Group” set out to make a video documentary, using a modern news magazine format, to examine and ultimately expose the falsehoods contained in the official story of what took place on September 11, 2001. What has transpired as a result of these efforts has blossomed into a full-scale battle – not of right as opposed to left, or conservative in contrast to liberal, but simply of right versus wrong.
A PHOTOGRAPH SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORDS, WHAT DOES VIDEO SAY?
What “911 In Plane Site” accomplishes that no other video expose’
on September 11th has to date, is it exposes the viewer to a barrage
of news clips from a majority of the mainstream news outlets.
The official story of that day was told on live TV by reporters,
policemen, firefighters, and other on-the-scene eyewitnesses, however, that
footage was shown only once on live television broadcasts in the first hours of
the attacks and then… it was never repeated.
The stories changed, information was enigmatically omitted, and what can
only be described as officially prescribed propaganda took the place of
Some of the most damning evidence surrounding the attack on the Pentagon
centers about substantial and incontrovertible video and photographic evidence
which insights viewers to ask crucial and essential questions. After all, the laws of physics cannot be suspended or can
One question many viewers ask is, “why
was America and the rest of the world not shown the video footage and the
photographs of the Pentagon, BEFORE the outer wall had collapsed?”
Many people do not realize that the outer wall of the Pentagon did not
collapse until 20 minutes after the initial impact of what we were told was a
Boeing 757. Upon examining these photographs, one can clearly see a hole,
which is only 16 feet in diameter. This
begs the question: “How can a Boeing 757 which is over 44 feet in height and
124 feet in width simply disappear without a trace into a hole that is only 16
ft. in diameter? Why is there no
external damage to the Pentagon where the wings and the tail section would have
impacted with the outer wall?
Contrary to the video footage shown to the American public, photographs taken only moments after the impact show no wreckage on the lawn of the Pentagon. Where is the plane? Where are the tail, the wings, the luggage, the seats, the landing gear, and the engines? Most importantly, what happened to the passengers who were aboard that plane? America remembers the photographs that they were shown of tiny, indiscernible fragments, which were described as pieces of a Boeing 757. Were these fragments of a Boeing 757? Internal photographs of the Pentagon taken by Jocelyn Augustino, a FEMA photographer, do not show engine parts matching the description of a 757’s engine turbofan according to John W. Brown, who happens to be a spokesman for Rolls Royce. Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce manufacture the engines used on these jetliners. The turbofans themselves are approximately 7 feet in diameter. The FEMA photos show what appears to be a turbofan that is approximately 3 feet in diameter. This better fits the descriptions of eyewitnesses who claim that they saw what could only be described as a commuter plane capable of holding only 8 to 12 passengers. This single piece of evidence also helps support other reports from witnesses such as Lon Rains who said “I heard a very loud, quick whooshing sound. I was convinced it was a missile. It came in so fast – it sounded nothing like an airplane.” Don Parkal said, “A bomb had gone off. I could smell the cordite. I knew explosives had been set off somewhere.” Tom Seibert said, “We heard what sounded like a missile.”
Another interesting point worth mentioning is that in the aftermath
following the Pentagon attack, it was reported by media sources that a giant 100
feet crater had been plowed into the front lawn of the Pentagon as the result of
a powerful airliner crash. Photographic
evidence overwhelmingly shows that this was absolutely not the case.
No crater – no skid marks – no burn marks… (No plane?)
Why was the American public and the entire world deliberately misled?
Six months after the attacks, as many Americans began to stand up and ask
questions concerning the official story of what happened at the heart of the
nation’s military establishment, Pentagon officials responded by releasing
five fuzzy frames of what they claimed was a 757 plowing into the side of the
Pentagon. We were told that a
surveillance camera located across from the heliport pad took these photos.
However, these five frames seemed to raise more questions than they
attempted to answer. First of all,
the date code on the first frame was dated September 12, 2001 at 5:37 P.M.
That’s one day and eights hours too late.
Secondly, the resolution of the frames was so incredibly low that they
did not allow for a thorough analysis of the images that we were being shown.
Thirdly, the one frame labeled “plane” did not show anything that
could even remotely be interpreted as a Boeing 757.
Are we truly expected to believe that there was only one security camera
capable of capturing the most heinous attack ever carried out against the
nucleus of U.S. national defense? Upon
further examination of this area of the Pentagon, one can clearly count at least
five additional security cameras, two of which were unmistakably aimed directly
where the plane would have impacted.
It is also worth mentioning that there was three privately owned security cameras all trained in the direction necessary to capture video of the plane hitting the Pentagon. One at a gas station across I-395, one on the rooftop of the Hilton International Hotel, and another located at the Virginia Department of Transportation, which would have captured the plane descending over Interstate 395. Literally, within only a few minutes after the attack, Federal officials arrived at all three locations and confiscated the videotapes. The contents have never been released to the public.
WORLD TRADE CENTER:
Summarizing similar discrepancies relating to the World Trade Center
attacks, Marc Bernback, who was described on air as an employee of Fox News,
stated on live television that the plane he saw crash into the South tower came
down so low that he could make out the fact that the “commercial airliner”
had no windows. This was repeated
twice in the same interview. Even
the Fox anchorperson asked, “Could these have been cargo planes?”
Marc went on to describe a blue, circular logo located on the front of
the plane. He also alluded to the
fact that this plane “did not look like it was from around here;”
speculating that the plane may have come from a military base - not a commercial
airport. The producers of “911 In
Plane Site” later interviewed Marc Bernback and he stands firmly behind his
on-air account. “No windows…”
Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and other news networks provided live video feed of
witnesses who claim that they heard other explosions going off in and around the
World Trade Center AFTER both planes had struck their respective targets.
These witnesses were policemen, firefighters, reporters, and businessmen
who were on the scene as the events unfolded and were in a unique position to
know the intricacies of what was taking place.
One after the other a reporter would ask, “Was that a building collapse
or did you hear an explosion.” One
right after the next they all came back with the same equally resonant answers -
“It sounded like a bomb…” “It
sounded like an explosion.” One eyewitness in particular, a physician, who was
interviewed live on Fox News said, “I think it was a bomb because there were
two of them.”
Another eyewitness, Louie
Cacchioli, a 51 year old firefighter assigned to engine 47 in Harlem whose
interview appeared in the September 24, 2001 edition of People Magazine
had this to say, “We were the first ones in the second tower after the plane
struck. I was taking firefighters
up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate
workers. On the last trip up a bomb
In the documentary “The Filmmakers' Commemorative Edition” a film
about the New York City firefighters by Gedeon and Jules Naudet, other
firefighters articulated their alarming accounts about the possibility of
demolition explosives being planted in the North and South tower - “Floor by
floor it started popping out… It was as if they had detonators planted to take
down a building.”
The firefighters battling the
blazes that day weren’t the only onlookers who noticed something out of the
ordinary when it came to the demise of the twin towers.
A significant number of news anchors and on-the-scene reporters also
began to make on-air comments regarding the North and South tower collapses.
Each in turn making distinctive comparisons of how the towers fell in
such a controlled “demolition-like” fashion.
One by one the reports came in. “We
heard a loud explosion.” “We
have a report now of a second explosion.”
“We have a report now of a fourth explosion.”
“The top of the building just blew up.”
“We heard a very loud blast – an explosion.
Not clear now is why that explosion took place.”
Rick Sanchez, who was giving his report live on MSNBC, had this to say, “I spoke with some police officials moments ago, Chris, and they told me they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Center, aside from the one that may have been caused by the impact of the plane with the building, may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device in it.” In a separate event he also describes police evacuating an area where police had discovered a ‘suspicious device’ which police officials fear may lead to another explosion. These accounts echo on and on until it is evident that we are not discussing simple terrorists with box cutters hijacking planes and crashing them into buildings. Something else took place September 11, 2001, and what has been presented thus far isn’t even the most damning evidence to suggest a high level cover-up.
The most controversial footage contained in “911 In Plane Site” comes
from at least four separate mainstream sources – CNN’s “America
Remembers,” BBC’s “Why The Towers Fell,” PBS’s “Son of
Al Qaeda,” and Gedeon and Jules Naudet’s “The Filmmakers'
Commemorative Edition,” as well as, three other independent sources of
video shot by private citizens on the streets of New York using their handheld
camcorders and eventually purchased for licensing from a company in New York
named Camera Planet.
Let’s begin by examining the original source footage from CNN. Everyone has seen this same footage over and over again.
The Boeing 767 enters from the left side of the frame and plows full
speed into the corner of the South tower. Still
frames from this shot appear on dozens of national magazine covers from all over
the country and it is also the trademark video that used by most filmmakers for
their documentaries on 9/11. What
most people have failed to recognize, until recently, is that on the underside
of the plane, just to the right of the fuselage, there appears to be a peculiar
three-dimensional anomaly. By
comparison, this “protrusion” looks as if it is slightly smaller than one of
the engines mounted to the plane. Keep
in mind that the engines on a 767 are approximately 9 feet in diameter and 12
feet in length.
The first impression is that it might be a trick of light and shadow, so
it was important to turn to experts in this field.
Vanguardia, a publication in Barcelona, Spain, published an investigative report
by a Spanish university, back in June of 2003.
What was their professional opinion?
After a thorough digital image analysis, the university experts came to
the conclusion that the object mounted to the bottom of this plane was
three-dimensional in nature and could not have been caused by shadows or
reflections. This brings us to a
very interesting point in our investigation and begs us to ask some very serious
questions. What is mounted to the
underbelly of Flight 175? What
purpose did it serve in the attacks? How
could this plane have departed from a commercial airport without such a large
attachment being noticed by maintenance and refueling personnel?
Wouldn’t the baggage handlers have noticed it? Surely we can all
agree that they would have noticed it - that is, if it had taken off from a
Let’s stop for a moment and ask the question, “Did this plane take
off from a commercial airport?” We
already have one Fox News employee making the statement that the plane had no
passenger windows. What commercial
airliner has no passenger windows? The
answer, I’m sure we all can agree, is none.
We have a Fox News anchor asking the question, “Is it possible that was
some sort of cargo plane?”
After a few weeks of searching, we were able to obtain photographs of a
military Boeing 767. This plane is being marketed to the U.S. Air Force by
Boeing to replace their KC-130 series. The
most perplexing aspect of this military craft is that it has no passenger
windows and is in fact a refueling tanker aircraft.
Is it possible that the plane we all saw crashing into the South tower
was a Boeing 767 refueling tanker aircraft?
Wouldn’t such a plane take off from a military base?
Upon further examination of the plane that hit the second tower we see
nothing out of the ordinary… or do we? When
the footage is viewed at full speed, 30 frames per second, we do indeed see
nothing out of the ordinary. In
spite of this, when we slow the footage down from 100% to roughly 2% we see
something completely unexpected. Just
as the plane is making contact with the building we see something quite
remarkable. Just to the right side
of the nosecone we can make out a distinct bright red flash.
Some have speculated that this is simply a reflection of light caused by
the sun reflecting on the metal surface of the plane.
Then again, we have to take into account the physical properties of what
causes a reflection. Reflections
can only be seen from one angle. For
instance, you can use a mirror to aim a reflection of the sun’s rays and point
those rays at a different point in space. This
is a direct result of light bouncing off of one surface and being directed at
another single point. So, in short,
a reflection can only be seen from one particular angle.
If you move away from that that position, you no longer see the
“911 In Plane Site” actually uses a total of 4 different pieces of
footage to demonstrate that this is no mere reflection.
In fact, in one of the most spectacular illustrations the viewer can
actually see the bright red flash being directed back onto the fuselage itself.
There has also been speculation that the flash may be landing lights
mounted on the underside of each of the wings on the plane and that these
powerful lights are radiating on the surface of the building.
This theory sounds plausible at first.
However, upon closer inspection of additional video footage, which was
shot from an angle under the plane, we have a clear view of the other side of
the plane. Is there a flash,
reflection, or sparkle of light on the left side of the plane?
No, there is not. If we rule out landing lights and glinting reflections, does
this bring us any closer to explaining this mystery?
What we needed now was further
confirmation that something out of the ordinary was taking place.
So now we turn to the North tower, the first building struck by an
airliner. When we slowed down this
footage, did we see anything out of the ordinary?
Indeed we did. There is a massive momentary flash, which occurs just a split
second before the plane strikes the outer skin of the building.
In this case the flash appears to be a giant solid blast of white smoke.
Ones first impression of this
phenomenon might be that it is simply the outer wall of the tower being
pulverized into a giant plume of dust and debris. This theory sounds plausible until you play the video
backwards in slow motion. It then
becomes overwhelmingly apparent that the plane is clear of the building before
the blast takes place. We clearly
have confirmation of not just one mysterious flash, but two.
What does this all mean?
Simply put, there were more things going on the morning of September 11,
2001, than the American public has been led to believe.
It is not necessarily our intention to answer all of the questions raised
in this documentary, but simply to ask the questions.
It is up to the viewing audience to decide if the video and photographic
evidence that they are viewing with their own eyes warrants further
investigation. If you are like most
people who have seen this video, you will no doubt be stricken with an
overpowering sense of betrayal. Serious
questions need to be addressed by those officials to whom we have entrusted the
very survival of this great country.
There can be no doubt; video footage and still photographs need no voice because they speak for themselves. They are incontrovertible evidence of a massive cover-up concerning the events of 9/11. Action is needed and action must be taken – at the polls, in the voting booths, on the street corners, and in your very own living rooms. Spread the word. Spread the video.
those innumerable individuals who all ask the same drumming question, “What
happened to the people onboard those jetliners?”
Keep this one simple idea in mind. If
you have an unlimited black ops budget, you can make people say anything, do
anything, and go anywhere – and no one said choice was an option.
If you still believe that
terrorists with box cutters carried out 9/11, then you may have nothing to worry
about, but the next time you hear on your local news station that the terrorist
threat level has just been elevated, remember the words of Dave vonKleist as he
closes this video presentation. “Where
is your line in the sand?”
