F.A.Q. 1: The Official TV Archives


Q: “How can I trust September Clues? Is the analyzed video material documented and verifiable? What are the sources used for this research? ”

A: The official broadcasts of ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC, FOX and BBC for September 11, 12 & 13 are available at the official 9/11 TV archives – and may be viewed in streaming format. As for the non-live material (the alleged “amateur” shots), most have been aired on countless occasions on TV newscasts, documentaries and even feature movies. Other video snippets have surfaced over the years on the internet (some as late as 2008!), credited to anonymous identities. Most are just rotated/re-edited from old 3D composites - and all are proven forgeries.

NOTE: It appears that, since October 2008, TV Archive Org started denying access to some crucial morning broadcasts of 9/11. Should you run into this 'problem', please consult the mirrored archives.

The first 11 minutes of the 5 major TV networks on 9/11

The most spectacular moments of the "LIVE 9/11 TV BROADCASTS" were undoubtedly the images showing an “airplane” striking the World Trade Center. This comparative analysis is essential viewing to understand that those broadcasts were entirely fabricated from scratch:

These are the first 11 minutes of the September 11, 2001 LIVE TV BROADCASTS. The five major US TV networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBS and CNN) are synchronized - visually - using cues from apparent, shared 'satellite feeds' seen in the various broadcasts. In spite of this, several inexplicable synch offsets occur randomly - at various times of the broadcasts. A host of aberrations suggest that these 'LIVE broadcasts' simply cannot be real: artificial, saturated, monochromatic color schemes; unrealistic camera motions; numerous/aimless chopper fly-bys; one single, surreal bird-flock fly-by, etc. One must wonder what those many 'choppers' are up to in the first place: most simply fly across the screen at sustained speed. Some are synched (between the networks), while some are not - or altogether missing. All of this suggests these images are merely a pre-fabricated batch of computer simulations designed to fool the world.

Keep in mind that these broadcasts should represent the immediate aftermath of a most unexpected event (the 1st “hijacked plane’s” strike at 8:46AM). Yet, the 5 rival TV networks appear to be instantly interconnected – often sharing identical images in real-time, as if all were actually mixed in a single TV studio. A series of other oddities occur in these crucial minutes of the day's 'newscasts. I have chosen to point out only a few significant ones – leaving the opportunity for anyone to pick out the rest. Test your observation skills !

What best reveals the contrived nature of these proffered “LIVE” broadcasts is the absurd sequence of the FINAL 16 SECONDS OF PLANE APPROACH”: four shots depict the approach sequentially - yet none of the 4 shots timelines overlap. It ensues that there are no two directly comparable LIVE SHOTS within the “airplane approach” timeline. This is - objectively speaking - way beyond the realm of probability; To put such an occurrence down to haphazard demands a formidable 'leap of faith'. (To be sure, the official tale of 9/11 presents an endless procession of extraordinary ‘coincidences’). More likely, this ocurrence was no fluke : disallowing any comparison/cross-examination of the 4 "airplane shots" would have been an obvious 'safety measure' observed by the computer-animation crew.

Note : The issue of synchronizing the 9/11 broadcasts is, of course, a tricky one: Since no exact countdown/synch point is available for the 5 archive broadcasts, one has to choose whether to use either the audio/or the video tracks to align them. In "SEPTEMBER CLUES part E" I chose to synch the 5 broadcasts by aligning them on the audio. For the more recent "SYNCHED OUT" analysis, the video tracks were chosen. This gave slightly offset results (in the order of +/-1sec) for some of the compared broadcasts. Either way, a consistent synch alignment of all broadcasts (as one should expect from real live multiple broadcasts) is just not possible.
