Afghan Massacre - The Convoy of Death: VIDEO

Jamie Doran
50 min 13 sec

Produced and directed by Irish filmmaker and former BBC producer Jamie Doran, the film tells the story of thousands of prisoners who surrendered to the US military's Afghan allies after the siege of Kunduz. According to the film, some three thousand of the prisoners were forced into sealed containers and loaded onto trucks for transport to Sheberghan prison. When the prisoners began shouting for air, U.S.-allied Afghan soldiers fired directly into the truck, killing many of them. The rest suffered through an appalling road trip lasting up to four days, so thirsty they clawed at the skin of their fellow prisoners as they licked perspiration and even drank blood from open wounds.

A Hundred Firecrackers

By George Washington

Original is here.
There were numerous eyewitness reports of loud explosions right before the collapse of each of the Twin Towers.

Defenders of the official story argue that the explosions were actually floors "pancaking" on top of each other.

However, such a theory doesn't explain the reports from credible witnesses of a series of rapid-fire sounds like "gunshots" or "firecrackers". For example:

A witness interviewed on television stated "it sounded like gunfire . . . . bang bang bang bang bang . . . and then three big explosions"

And a paramedic said "at first I thought it was -- do you ever see professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear pop pop pop pop pop -- thats exactly what I thought it was" (page 9)

Now, the guys who made the video Loose Change have found another witness. Specifically, the brand new trailer for the final cut of the video Loose Change includes a news interview with a witness who heard the following, right before the collapse of one of the towers:

"It sounded as if you had a hundred of those . . . firecrackers and you lit them all off at once . . . it sounded like the finale of the Fourth of July over the East River"
(at 15:21)

How can pancaking floors sound like hundreds of firecrackers during the grand finale at a major fireworks show?

On the other hand, wouldn't hundreds of cutter charges going off at once make exactly that sound?"

Let us assume things being reported now about the 1995 OKC atrocity are even half true. After that, wouldn't you be inclined to become a bit of a "9/11 skeptic" as well? Wouldn't you want to demand that those events too be adequately investigated?

Great. Just look forward to the Dollar declining 23% over the next 5 years.
