Stunning Example of Dis-Information at Work – Knocking the Strawman Over

Stunning Example of Dis-Information at Work – Knocking the Strawman Over

If you have seen the film, 9-11 In Plane Site, you are familiar with the man known as Mike Walter of USA Today, even though you may have never heard his name. He is the man who was an eyewitness to the crash at the Pentagon and many have dishonestly used an interview he did on CNN on September 11th, 2001 to justify the idea that a missile, not AA77 hit the Pentagon on 9-11. Below is an excerpt from that interview that appeared in the 9-11 film, In Plane Site at approximately 6 minutes, 45 seconds into the film:

I want to make it clear that the above excerpt was taken directly from the film 9-11 In Plane Site.
Now, lets compare this to the full clip of the interview from September 11th, 2001, with the collapsed area of the Pentagon clearly visible in the background:

Mike Walter, pentagon witness, CNN, 17:14, 9/11
After watching the full clip of the interview, it is obvious that film maker Dave von Kleist is not being honest when he uses Mike Walter’s words and clearly takes them out of context.

My friends, whether you choose to admit it or not, this is blatant disinformation and all well meaning people who recommend this film are guilty of spreading misinformation, which is hurting the 9-11 movement.

Below is a stunning example of how this is being done. Taking Mr. Walter’s statement out of context like this is the classic straw man argument, where a “straw man” is set up, and then easily knocked down. Dave von Kleist and others were very successful in setting up this straw man around the words of Mike Walter. Many, without doing the research, have picked up this disinfo and spread it around far and wide.

So SURPRISE – SURPRISE, when The History Channel Hit Piece steps up to swat down the straw man. At 35:00 minutes in on the below video, producers of this film have no problem at all knocking the strawman over, easily showing that Flight 77 did hit the Pentagon and the idea that it was not a Boeing 757, but a missile or something else which struck the Pentagon is complete disinformation. Please watch the following example of how it’s done:  (Editors note:  Apparently the History Channel hit piece is no longer available on youtube)

If you have watched the previous 3 short video clips, you have just witnessed how disinformation and the straw man technique is being used to discredit the 9-11 Truth Movement. Millions of people saw The History Channel embarrass the entire movement. Thank you Dave von Kleist and many others.

Finally, Mike Walter has publicly responded to his words being taken and used out of context.

Ever wonder why 9-11 truth isn’t further along than we should be 6 years after the crime? Take a good long hard look at what I have presented here today and judge for yourself. I have for years been pointing out the disinformation which is hurting our movement and will continue to do so. My plea to all well meaning people who work so hard for the truth??? Lets be sure that what we are promoting is indeed the truth. Stick to the best evidence in your activism and expose others to the known disinfo/9-11 trouble maker crowd which are hurting our efforts.
