After watching this documentary
found in this
I´ve decided to open a new thread, because the story is quite compelling,
and really has not been discussed as such. (A very, very big thanks to Amon_Ra for finding this video!)
Here is the deal:
1) NASA did really go to the moon, but the footage shot of the astronauts on the moon was unusable due to the high temperature swings which affected
the film. Both pictures and film were mostly unusable.
2) In a "what if" scenario Nixon decided just two weeks before the mission to make sure that clear photo and film material was made which could be
presented to the public just in case anything should go wrong.
Huh? That´s right. They actually devised a plan to shoot the moon walks and the planting of the flag in a studio and take pictures of the planting of
the American flag etc. etc. in a studio somewhere in London.
Why London? Well, it happens that my favorite director, Stanley Kubrick, was working over there shooting, and Kubrick owed the U.S. Gov. a favour for
being allowed access into the situation room to shoot parts of his "Dr. Strangelove".
Stay with me!
So, they talked to Kubrick, who in the end agreed to use a skeleton crew and film two CIA operatives doing the moon acts. All under perpetual Non
Disclosure Agreement ofcourse.
So far, no harm no foul right?
Aha, but when the real event took place NASA´s footage proved useless, forcing the backup footage to be used. This changed things somewhat, because
now Nixon couldn´t sleep anymore worrying about a score of people knowing the footage and pictures presented to the world are not NASA´s footage,
but rather mostly footage shot in a studio somewhere in London.
So forget the NDA, how do we get these people eliminated? During preparations for eliminating the entire crew and actors of the staged footage,
Nixon´s advisors (Rumsfeld one of them) advise against this plan, and Nixon does not give his final OK.
Somehow, one of the operation´s operatives, a Col. Kaplan, thinks he is Col. Kurtz from "Apocalypse Now", and turns rogue, deciding to go ahead
with the operation anyway.
Bottom line is, all crew that were present, including the two CIA actors, die suddenly in a short period of time.
Finally, even Kubrick, fearing for his life, retreats from the public view and never makes public appearances or give interviews anymore until the day
Some story. It would be a nice theory were it not that the following persons are on tape being interviewd, and admitting that this operation
actually took place
Rumsfeld, Kissinger, Haig, Eagleburger, Helms, Kubrick´s widow and others.
This is on film people, watch
The depressions and refusal to give interviews by the NASA astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Cooper suddenly makes a lot more sense, doesn´t it?
