Tracy Postert a fellow truther in the 9/11 movement explained a story where she was talking to a man who said he was in high school in Brooklyn when he looked out of the window to see WTC 1 smoke. He said he pointed it out to his class and everyone went to the window when he saw what he described as “the plane.” He said it was very small, dark and moving incredibly fast, but insisted that it was an jet plane. I asked him if it could have been a missile, that some missiles have little wings, and he denied it. I mentioned the possibility of holograms, and he was getting a little nervous and repeating himself a bit that he really saw the plane she explained. She also described a day at the Wall Street rally, where she had her big “BEAM WEAPONS destroyed the WTC” sign when a business type came up to her, asking questions and mentioning that he saw the plane. She replied to him with a question, “Do you see the word ‘plane’ on my sign? I’m not talking about the planes.” But he went on. He insisted that there were hundreds of thousands of plane eyewitnesses, including himself. Then he told the story of a young trader who came rushing in to the office saying he saw plane parts. That was his story. He said he, himself, had seen the plane, but the little vignette he related to her was about someone else seeing plane parts.
If you are a personal eyewitness to something like this, you have a personal, imprinted memory that you carry around with you. If the guy had really seen a plane impact the building that day, he would have told Tracy THAT story instead of some story about what a young trader said.
She still to this day hasn’t come across one “eyewitness” who has a story that doesn’t fall apart at the seams upon the slightest questioning.
Everyday people from all walks of life in all cities across the world talked about people they knew seeing planes. This is something that people do all the time, it is a small talk “I was there” or “The fish was this big” type story that is passed on and on and on like a silly game of telephone.
Dr James Ost, of the University of Portsmouth, said people create false memories which can pose problems for police investigating major crimes, social workers investigating families where abuse is suspected, adults who believe they have “recovered” memories from childhood trauma and for the courts where witness testimony is relied upon. He told the BA Festival of Science in Liverpool many people can be persuaded they have seen things which never happened. “Taken as a whole, this is further evidence that our memories are not perfect. They are not like a videotape you can rewind and replay for perfect recall. “Because of this, memory alone is not reliable enough to form the basis of legal decisions.”
So we are supposed to believe that everyday average joes from all over the world have stories of seeing planes that day ?But an ABC reporter standing at the base of the tower didn’t see anything ?
ABC DAN DAHLER “I DID NOT SEE A PLANE GO IN” video – insert
Notice how the plane had to have made a ‘huge turn’ to hit the tower, when in other videos including the Hezarkhani and TinaCart1 video there is no turn at all… Did two planes hit WTC 2 ? Obviously this is a complete contradiction.
Some people bring up the (obviously uneducated argument) that ‘thousands of people ‘saw planes hit the wtc’ and some have even speculated that thousands of people have home video of the planes hitting. Well the truth is that there are 18 videos and everyone of them are either anonymous posts or people who are connected to the main stream media… Why did no normal everyday people get video or pictures of the attacks ?
ELECTRONIC WARFARE : “The capability for DECEIVING, disrupting, and destroying the SURVEILLANCE and COMMAND AND CONTROL.
ELECTROMAGNETIC WEAPON –Any device which can produce an electromagnetic field of such intensity that targeted items of electronic equipment experience either a SOFT KILL or a HARD KILL.
In other words, it is standard practice in modern warfare to use electromagnetic jamming to disrupt the enemy’s electronic circuitry . Such a temporary disruption may have been applied for a few seconds only (in order to obscure missile approach) or even during … 102 minutes to obscure also the tower collapses. Only specially anti-jamming protected cameras would function during the EW activation. Please remember that no cell-phones worked properly that day – nor did the firefighters’ walkie-talkies..
IT IS A FACT THAT ALL CELL PHONES IN NYC, AND EVEN MOST OF THE EASTERN SEA BOARD WERE JAMMED. IT IS A FACT THAT ALL MILITARY PLANES WERE ORDERED TO LAND FOR ONLY A FEW MINUTES BETWEEN THE ‘POOF’ OF BOTH WTC 1 & 2.
According to my statistics, the majority of eyewitnesses reported a SMALL flying object (Cessna,commuter plane, business jet, small propeller plane(!), and last but not least ‘a missile’). We are talking about lots of people and testimonies (see Andrew Johnson’s study of 12000 pages of testimonies). So, if you are saying only explosions took place, you must dismiss ALL these people as plants/liars/or plain mistaken. Granted, we all know witness reports should be taken with a grain of salt – but this seems to be stretching it.
THE EARLY TV REPORTS
The early TV newscasts – in fact – ran with the ‘commuter-plane’ or ‘small plane’ story. Why would that be? As I see it, it was an obvious and clever strategy : as the only problem they had was the size-discrepancy between a 767 and a missile, this would help putting to rest anyone who would swear to high heaven to have witnessed a small object crashing into the tower. Gradually, as TV ran their ’767′ cartoon-clips over and over again, they would concede that their recollection had been a misjudgment – amounting to a total of 3-4 seconds of their brain’s life…
* Only 19 of the witnesses near the WTC reported actually seeing plane 2 before impact and, as a percentage of total number near the WTC, this was 20%.
* Only 20 of the witnesses near the WTC reported actually hearing plane 2 before impact and as a percentage of total number near the WTC, this was 21%.
* Only 8 of the witnesses near the WTC reported actually seeing and hearing plane 2 before impact and as a percentage of total number near the WTC, this was 8.3%.
* Of those witnesses inside one of the WTC buildings at the time of the 2nd impact, only 2 reported hearing the plane (none saw it). As a percentage of the total of those inside WTC, this was 9.5%.
* There were 117 witnesses inside or near the WTC and 291 witnesses in the total sample I used. The percentages given below, then, are therefore based on the number 291 – 117 giving a total of 174.
* There were 33 witnesses who were further than ½ mile from the WTC Complex and reported seeing plane 2 before impact. As a percentage of the total of those who were further than ½ mile from WTC Complex, this was 19%.
* There were 2 witnesses who were further than ½ mile from the WTC Complex and reported hearing plane 2 before impact. As a percentage of the total of those who were further than ½ mile from WTC Complex, this was 1.1%.
There are other instances of confusion. The account of Peter Fallucca (File No: 9110388) mentions a “fireball or something” and a missile attack as witnessed by a police officer:
It was a big fireball or something from the plane I guess, came from across the street in front of our rig, and as we get out of the rig, there’s a cop, city police officer, in the street. He’s telling us, “I’m getting out of here. I just saw a rocket.” He said he saw it come off the Woolworth Building and hit the tower.
