Strange, the loops that history has made since this time last year, when Memorial Day brought a fusillade of TV specials arrayed around the premiere of the megabucks movie "Pearl Harbor" (more than six months before the actual 50th anniversary). The movie flopped, but it was lauded, not least on TV, for special effects so realistic they brought us right into the scene of the 1941 sneak attack.

There's lots of footage around, I'd be surprised if it doesn't start turning up unofficially (e.g., Internet, DVD, etc.) On one hand, it's up to the families on what to do with such info. On the other hand, the sanitization of the images to the general public is enabling the left and the idealogues to slowly but surely mute our memory, an thus our reaction, and tie the hands of our President and military. This evil of radical Islam needs to be rooted out, before worse befalls the civilized world.

"...It can make tall skinny towers..."

Won't argue that point - but, will it do so when the source falls from 100 (+/-) stories ??

. . . just curious . . .

I have temporarily subscribed to HBO just to tape it. I don't even really want to watch it, just tape it to watch when the kids are not awake. I also taped the original attacks and towers falling on that dreadful day, but have yet to replay the tape.

FReepers should always have blank tapes on hand to tape breaking news, because the story often gets distorted by the same media afterwards. It is only due to the fact that somene else on FR made this very suggeston, that I had tapes on hand to pop in on 9-11-01.

It was a tasteful and sensitive program.

I'm guessing it has to drip at a not too fast rate to form mounds like that. It's not something I really want to know much about.
