I need the 'censored' photos.
My Personal Project | Today | Looking4Truth

Posted on 10/22/2001 10:53:24 PM PDT by Looking4Truth

Disclaimer: Maybe this shouldn't be posted under Current Events but Vanity, but I believe the event should remain current in our minds.

This thread hopefully doesn't offend victims of the cowardly terrorist attack (Not "tragedy", or "mishap") as the Big Media would like to spin it.

My request is simple.

I am starting a collection of photos, video captures, etc for a special project that I've been developing which I may title something like "America Will Never Forget".

Let me give you a little background about my personal development since joining FR (and lurking for at least a year before that).

My education beyond my little world has increased exponentially since becoming a member here and I will be eternally grateful.

Now comes the rough part. I am not a morbid individual, but I am trying to ferret out the 'bad', 'censored' and otherwise NON-Big Media accepted version of the images that Big Media has decided we need to see.

I've seen a few very gory distaster(or otherwise) situations in my lifeand I can see from the very beginning that Big Media is sanitizing the info we receive already regarding the 'tradgey' (effin euphemisms).

Bottom line. I want the gut-wrenching pics that some of you may have sources for that I can use. Not that seeing people fall to their death vs. getting incinerated by 2000deg flames wasn't enough.

I want the hardcore stuff.

The reason that I am passionate about this cause is it took me forty years to finally see some actual photos of naked jews getting gunned down in cold blood from behind and I have been educated very thoroughly about the holocaust since I was a child but still never experienced actual images until I came to ....you guessed it.... FreeRepublic.

I don't want history obscured like it was when I went to school.

FReepmail me with links or tell me to FOAD.

I've already got the crash video and photos, lots of the recovery images, but I think you know what I am looking for.

My heartfelt condolences go to the families who have directly been affected, the poor little innocent children who had to deal with by 'expressing themselves thru drawing' or some liberal BS 'counseling', and he heroic fire and rescue people involved in this TERRORIST ATTACK.

If the project comes to fruition, it will not be for personal gain.

The world should never forget this cowardly, pathetic attempt to frighten the greatest country in the history of the world into submission.

Let's Roll!

I won't give you my business account, but If you want to help either link images somewhere where I can get them thru FReepmail or send directly to JGRobertsBassist@hotmail.com.

The media in Spain has published a lot of pictures of "pieces" according to one FReeper there.

Good luck. I've been trying to find some of these "censored photos" and "censored videos" ever since 9/11, and haven't been able to come up with anything at all. Well, there is this one VERY disturbing photo, but since it was published in the New York Daily News, we can hardly call it "suppressed."

I know what you mean. I've been a pro-gun warrior on the gun-control discussion forums for many years, and sometimes when nothing else works to pound some reality into an anti-gunner's head, a stark dose of real-life in the form of uncensored photos of car accidents and various forms of non-gun suicide often works wonders.

Uncensored photos of the carnage of 9/11 would be even more valuable as a "reality check" for many of the ivory-tower peaceniks who even now still can't quite seem to grasp the nature of what really happened. To them, it's all one big batch of movie special effects.

I don't think any of these pictures are censored. I collected them from various news sites. They are all wire service photos I think.

None are particularly grisly, if that is what you are looking for.

Something about that last photo doesn't look right. The building looks too small to be one of the twin towers, and the exterior is not the same either.

I had actually looked for the same thing (body pieces etc) for a poster or something - for similar reasons. People are already forgetting what this is all about and some folks, frankly, need to have their noses rubbed in the strongest images available. I tried a couple Internet searches in Dutch and Norwegian but didn't get anything. (It sounds like Spanish may yield more) In the end, though, I found that the images of falling people and Arab celebrations were both obscene enough for me.

The first day and night, the Spanish-speaking stations were showing the REAL footage, the people jumping, EVERYTHING. The network is <a href="http://www.univision.com>UniVision</a> I could kick myself for not taping it, I KNEW they would soon be censored. You MAY be able to contact them and get a tape, I doubt it, but maybe worth a try.

I'd like to get a copy of the live news coverage of any major network during the first few hours of the attack (from the first bulletin til after the second collapse). I was asleep as all this happened and was not aware of it until Noon Eastern. I've heard a few comments that Brokaw and Jennings made as the event unfolded on their monitors but I'd like to see for myself how well they covered a major news story on the fly (pardon the allusion) and whether it matched the responses I saw of news coverage during the JFK assassination. FReepmail if you have a tape I can borrow.

No pics here but some pretty vivid description from the Pentagon crash site if you're interested in some written accounts.

So far a mixed bag, keep 'em coming. If you don't want to clog the thread (with the new format most original posts get lost so to speak, because of the new format). IN my case I didn't mind waiting on 293 posts to load. That way I can keep them all in one IE window. To each his own.

Thanks so far for the links and the photos.

In all honesty, I'm going to put together the coffee table book from hell, the powerpoint presentation from hell, and the 'family photo album' from hell.

Where do you all think that this TERRORIST ATTACK came from? The Great Big In The Sky, Heaven, or HELL!

I couldn't agree more. Thanks for the input. Maybe some of the 'jokers' on here will get a change of heart.

ANd believe me, I've let the humor attempts run wild in the past on this forum. You nailed it very well.

Sicko or not, it is a worthwhile thread. I am also concerned that people will be presented pictures in the near future as part of a propaganda effort to make Americans lose interest in pursuing the terrorists. It will only be easier if Americans forget the American lives first, and come to believe that what happened was not horrific. If we do forget, the rats will go free and that will definitely come back to haunt us in the form of more and far worse acts of terrorism, because it will reinforce the assumption that Americans are weak and don't have the will to pursue and destroy their enemies.

Wrong... it is an image of one of the towers, a detail from this picture right here. You can see that it is indeed the same facade. Perspective can do funny things to perceptions.

Even if you found pictures to post, pro-Islamic terrorist apologizers and excusers would claim that they were fake or propaganda, not to mention the Muslim populations themselves. As for loyal Americans, these pictures must be available if and when such a sentiment for sympathy for the casualties of our enemies emerges. American GIs in Europe were ordered by General Omar Bradley to tour and view the Nazi death camps, not to shock or sicken them, but to show them exactly whom and what they were fighting for. The same was done with the Malmedy massacre of captured American GIs by Nazi SS troops. Sometimes the harsh reality of war has to be brought home to the people to make them understand what is at stake and what may happen if we aren't victorious.

Actually, I believe that there are a few inaccuracies in your last post.

The occupying force made the German civilians march past the grotesque images of their fallen brethern because of their blindly following the 'powers that be' before we 'liberated' them.

Remember after the American occupation that the German cuties that were boinking the Nazis during the occupation suddenly found them outcasts of society and suffered some very bad things in the streets.

Anyway , I'm not trying to debate history. I'm looking for images.

Here is a good web site (from which I unethically took the photo above and now credit to make up for it) with video clips, a very interesting infrared satellite photo taken at the time the second tower went up, many pro photographer's shots, amateur image archives, etc.

Thank you piasa. And thank the rest of you all for the feedbac. I'll bookmark this thread for future reference (2 days maybe) to see what happens. Thanks FReepers. I'll be back with more rebuttals to the infiltrators, and I'll be back for the credit that is due. It is definitely zero-dark-thirty from where I am. Thank You. Anyone who feels like it, please BTTT, Freepmail, or private e-mail me.

Good Night, I'll be back in the AM. L8R, L4T

That was on the day of the attacks. It must have been someone who was on one of the planes or who was in one of the towers and was just blown to bits at the moment of impact and ejected out the blast hole. Which is probably a good thing, since it would mean he didn't feel a thing.

No, it's right. The Towers always looked that way from certain angles. It's just the way the outer skin of the buildings was designed.

Yes it is a very hard job and the worse thing about it is we don't get very good pay for it. If you are an EMT in Los Angeles, you are barely making over min. wage.
I was on my way to Paramedic school when we figured out as bad as I wanted to do it we just couldn't afford it.
Paramedics don't make much, I think from what I gathered I would be making around 10.00 hr when I graduated from school. We just couldn't make it on that kind of pay and I am too old to get into the Los Angeles Fire Dept. and work as a Paramedic there where you can make a half way decent living.

My guess is this is one of those jollies things. I can't imagine why anyone would want a picture of a splattered body except to offend someone and gloat over the reaction. A cyber flasher. The same people who think Annie Sprinkle and a cucumber is art.

Having heard Richard Gere's comments at the concert for New York, I'd say that there are some people who need to be offended by the sight of splattered bodies. The exploding and falling skyscrapers just weren't enough; he still doesn't get it.
