Tonight I am re-watching Michael Moore‘s Fahrenheit 9/11 with my new 9/11 glasses (ok, they are almost one year old now). It’s amazing how much different a movie it is with a different perspective. I thought I’d post a graphic that was promoted for a while as Bin Laden’s bunker. Pretty impressive graphic I thought. Too bad it wasn’t even close to the being real..
In this case I am pretty sure MM is a huge propagandist working for the team, but he does get some good shots in at Bush. Some elements of the movie that may be true are some of the Iraqi dead that he shows in the film – and the images are gruesome.
As with everything Hollywood, however, I can hardly be sure of even that.
The interesting thing about researching media fakery is that so few real events are happening out there.
The psychic driving of Iraq War #2 started up today. We haven’t heard much of that war for quite some time, so why not create a death and destruction media event to remind everyone of that huge land grab and tax swindle?
Two “sources”, two different sets of numbers. All add up to occultic numbers (11 in the headlines), with the tip phrase “at least xx”. Who could care what the numbers actually are, since no-one has any way to verify the so-called media services.
I wonder how many Americans actually know or care what’s going on over there?
FWIW, my favorite actor on the Iraqi side was “Baghdad Bob“. Remember he was the Minister of Information.
I post screen shots, since these stories are constantly edited as the fakery evolves.

Most of the net is on twitter and YouTube. This is where a majority get their clips of news. Both are horrible delivery systems of any depth of information. I call them drive-by outlets. You have a flash moment to get a point across. They are also loaded with disinformation and shillery, both professional and amateur.
Despite the bad review, I still linger there as that’s where the people are. I try (in vain usually) to engage victims of fakery. If we can flip one or two real (as if it was possible to tell) people to media fakery, then any effort is worth it.
To that end, I’ve been engaging (in vain) to get twitter user @PC0101 to open up to the fakery. If you are able, please engage @PC0101 with links to NASA fakery. He claims the earth photos of cities at night (from the ISS) are taken with a Nikon camera and 400mm zoom.
I say there is no way a zoom lens could take these photos from 400km away. They (like all earth photos) are taken from a conventional spy plane maybe 10km up. Anyone else who agrees let @PC0101 via twitter know or in the comments below.
