New Aerial NYPD Photos of 9/11 Attack Released
ABC News ^ | February 10, 2010

Posted on 02/10/2010 8:56:16 AM PST by NCjim

Newly released aerial photos of the Sept. 11, 2001, World Trade Center attack show the towers coming down from a dramatic new angle.

The photos were obtained by ABC News, which filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institute of Standards and Technology last year. The NIST collected the images as part of its investigation into the terrorist attack.

ABC said it was provided 2,779 pictures on nine CDs. Many of the photos, taken from police helicopters, have never been released before.

Let us all pause to remember the blessings and benefits Islam has brought to our country, as BO reminded us recently in his Cairo speech.

My pleasure. It's really a shame that some are trying to forget this happened. I can understand for those that lost loved ones...it's not something great to remember, but for America, it's best to, so history does not repeat itself.

I was just telling my co-workers after the Superbowl on Sunday that the best commercial ever, IMO, that they should play EVERY YEAR, is the one after 9/11, with the bowing Clydesdales to the towers. It still makes my eyes tear up.

I came into the middle of some Sylvester Stallone movie where he is with a bunch of folks inside one of the tunnels of Manhatten and somehow they were trapped and had to try to get out. Lots of fire, explosions, collapses, trapped people and water. At the end it shows him and the girl popping out into the water (East River?) with the Twin Towers behind them.

That was really weird to see this make believe movie, and at the end - there are the towers, unknowingly awaiting the same thing, but for real. (Well, except the water).

9/11 was the worst event to happen to the globalist agenda backed by corporate America, intellectual elites and Wall Street. Prior for over 20 years our best business and government schools were de emphasizing patriotism and nationalism in order to prepare a new generation of leaders to embrace globalist economics and transform our country. It means Wall Street can sell new schemes to other countries, corporations can sell and buy goods seamlessly and take advantage of overseas cheap labor and eventually people can be moved into this country like services, raw materials and finished products, ala amnesty for illegal immigration and guest workers, all for one thing, the bottom line - profit with disregard for country and American citizens. Our political class basicly did corporate and Wall Street bidding for political donations, while the Democrats also see prospects for more voters.
9/11 re ignited the American concience of what is a country, and what does it mean to be an American when we are targetted by terrorism and international despisement. GWB had a chance to go to war with a really pissed off America (similar to Pearl Harbor motivating the American fighting spirit in WW2). That anger could have helped us carry over in Iraq when things did not go so well.
Instead GWB catered to the globalist in his party and probably the Arab influence in the State Department. Within one week of 9/11 MSM censored the images of the burning WTC. GWB tried to placate American anger at the Muslim world by coining the term Islam is the ROP.
Globalist, free trade and internationalist propaganda may had brought some time, but the current recession/depression will change the American mood again. Job losses and wage depression caused by free trade and illegal immigration (both advocated by corporate America, Wall Street and ruling elites) came back to haunt unemployed Americans. This is one of the root causes for American anger and formation of the Tea Party movement. Americans on Main Street are waking up to the damages caused by schemers on Wall Street, the follies of our globalist/internationalist intellects (on both sides), the damaging effects of globalist, free trade and guest worker abuses by corporate America on American wages, the bankrupt notion of a welfare state with open borders for illegal immigrants and legal immigrants. Who will bear the brunt of the American anger? The politicians who enabled corporate America, Wall Street and intellects to carry out the job killing policies of the past. After the politicians, will come the bankers, CEO, environmentalists and professors. The revolution has started.

I agree, Lucky9teen. I think of that commercial often, and certainly around every Super Bowl over the years.

Here it is... the BEST COMMERCIAL EVER:

Respect: Budweiser Clydesdale Salute to 9/11

NEVER FORGET.

Some of the photos taken by foreign press have never been shown here in the states.

Not sure why the NIST would be investigating anything and not sure why it would take use of the Freedom of info act to get them.

Although I'm not sure either, I have a very good idea as to why residents of Mexico and Zimbabwe were able to see hundreds of images that American citizens were not allowed to see on 911 and immediately thereafter.

Control of the media and assertion of what government must allow and not allow its citizens to see. Simply because they can.

For their own good, of course.

Yes, even Dubya succumbed to this absurd abuse of central government power.

Even movies have editted out images of the WTC Towers that randomly appeared in movies...

Please tell me that's deliberate hyperbole!

I have seen many older movies where the towers are shown.

On the other hand, seeing Microsoft modifying their Flight simulator which shows New York is something I will never forget.

Talk about murdering savage human garbage making decisions for American citizens...

Don't get me started.
