STOYSTOWN, Pa. -- It was a remarkable shot that produced a one-of-a-kind image: a green pasture, red barns in the distance and, against a brilliant blue and cloudless sky, a lone mushroom cloud of dark gray smoke.
Taken the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, seconds after United Airlines Flight 93 plunged into a nearby field, the eerie photo was, and still is, according to the FBI, the closest thing it's got to an image of the crash itself.
Val McClatchey snapped the single picture with her new digital camera. The wife and mother had been sitting on the edge of her sofa, clutching her second cup of coffee and watching the smoking towers of the World Trade Center on TV, when she heard the sudden surge of a plane engine, followed by a violent, house-shaking boom. Mrs. McClatchey grabbed the camera and ran onto the front porch of her house along Indian Lake.
"I didn't even aim. I was just like, 'Oh, my God,' " she said. She dropped the camera, jolting the battery loose, then tried in vain to call her husband, son and daughter. She had no idea what she'd captured until the state police put a call out to people in the area, asking for photos, debris and other evidence. She took a printout of her photo to the police, she said, and, within an hour, FBI agents were at her house.
Once the full, national scope of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks had settled in, word spread quickly of Mrs. McClatchey's photograph, and soon, everyone wanted to buy a copy.
"But it's not something that felt right," she said.

I'm certainly no psychologist, but when people have such a burning need to blame terrorist acts perpetrated on this country on "inside job"s, that must be indicative of some kind of psychosis. It's definitely sick.
My guess, while close to yours, is that this is the left's LAME attempt to get the focus OFF of the Reuters photoshop scandal.
Maybe, but it was pointed out to me at post #24 that this thing was hatched before the Reuter's scandal (I neglected to actually read the article...), but it still could have been released when that scandal came to light for that purpose.
Everytime a real picture that captures something different than what the moonbats have been preaching/screaming/lying about...they ALWAY SAY IT'S PHOTOSHOPPED....ALWAYS...I've learned to ignore all of them....they just keep getting more and more looney....I've concluded they've actually gone off the deep end...
I can't run for office here in Ohio. I question the leadership of the republican party. I've been declared "not loyal"...
I think it looks like Helen Thomas.
Except a lot of people fall for it - websites and magazines wouldn't photoshop celebs if they didn't! ;)
Hereis the experiment in progress:
Actually....most folks pay very little attention to politics...truly...
Yeah, that is true too.
Thanks for giving me the "pleasure" of spewing my soda all over my monitor!!!!!
That's some FUNNY stuff!!!!!
When islam (piss be upon them) goes to guerila warfare here in the US (it's coming), remember to not protect the moonbats.
They will be on their own, singing "kumbya" and trying to get us to protect them.
I don't follow these nutty 9/11 conspiracy theories too closely, but I have a question for those who do: What do the conspiracists who insist a missile hit the Pentagon believe happened to all those people (like Barbara Olsen, for instance) on Flight 77? Kidnapped/murdered by the gov't, perhaps? If Flight 77 didn't hit the Pentagon as they assert, then what the heck happened to it?
I see the Virgin Mary.
To their credit, some lefties like Penn & Teller teat this stuff with the respect it deserves.
It also looks like the cloud that came up from the BUFF crash at Mather AFB in the early 1980s. Knew 6 of the 9 men on that aircraft.
Well they are the fakes. Pretending to be Americans, while really being on the side of the enemy.
Bingo. One of the 911 Conspiracy Theorists just got a job at University of Wisconsin teaching a course on Islam.
(Of course, they don't seem to have any idea of what happened to the rest of the people on the plane, like the bunch of fifth-graders coming back from a school trip.)
Q: How can you tell when a leftist is PSYCHOTIC and DEPRAVED?
A: They think 9-11 was an "inside job" and all evidence otherwise is fake, while they also claim that Hezbollah propaganda is all real and accurate.
These loathsome America-hating psychos will believe any garbage that spews out of Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, etc. while they will reject even the most obvious and reliable evidence that contradicts their psychoses.
It's Karl Rove and his propane jet fuel smoke machine...
