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.

Are you saying that the Bush administration censored all the 9/11 photos? the MSM at the scene on 9/11 voluntarily refrained from publishing them for us to see.
We could debate the merits (or lack thereof) of our relationship with the Saudis, etc and whether our State Dept is too beholden to some of the Arab countries. (I am not disagreeing with what you have said regarding that). The difference is, that if we don’t like any administration, we can vote them out, much like our Tea Party movement is doing. BUT, when we have the media at the scene of a tragedy like 9/11 and they take video footage and don’t release it, we don’t have much ability to change that. The FOIA allows us to get the government photos that we now have, but how do we get the footage of ABC, CBS, and NBC etc, etc, who were on the scene that day? We can’t. Yet, they ALL willingly showed Abu Ghraib photos to achieve the public opinion objectives that they did.
That’s why I fear the media more than our government. They are out of our reach.
Stunningly simple and beautiful as are all things truly American....
Just THE best.
Within a week a video of WTC were taken off the air by all major TV stations. That was corporate actions to stamp out patriotism/nationalism in order to preserve globalist agenda. Same time the GWB admin was trying to soften the hatred of Muslims and try to tell Americans it was the work of a few radicals when Arabs in US and overseas were dancing with joy!! That pressure came from Saudi Arabia and political correctness combined. You will be surprise how many former US government officials and employees land high paying jobs in Saudi funded think tanks, corporate boards and running investment funds. Saudis are not stupid, they know Israel has a strong lobby group in US, they basicly counter it with good post career incentives if US officials push for a more mild policy towards Arabs and mainly Saudi Arabia. Unlike the Israeli lobbyist who confront, the Saudis work behind the scenes and seduce.
Compare that with the MSM and FDR actions after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Images of burning US Fleet was constantly feed to the US public. Posters of vicious slant eyed Japs were posted everywhere. Even Japanese Americans were hiding for their lives. Talk about a nation serious about killing their enemies. Every tool was used, racism, images, God, patriotism to mobilize America for war.
And let’s not forget the country of origin of most of the 9/11 hijackers...Saudi Arabia.
Our nations inabliity to advocate sound policy due to our strange entanglements with other nations is what is scaring the bejezus out of me now that China has purchased so much of our debt...and most in Washington don’t seem to care. We are now becoming beholden to nations that we don’t really see eye to eye with.
Thanks for the ping!
