Thanks for your help Preston - much appreciated.
I hope all can agree it is the same truck we see in the beginning of both video's.
Also, that we agree a white object becomes visible right in front of the same truck in the cogburn video, but is missing or not observable in the CNN
discrepancy takes place just before the explosion happens.
It appears to me that the magnitude of the two explosion(s) are of the same size. It
appears equally that the truck(s) also are of same size in visible height, such, that it
can be argued that in all probability the white object in fact should be present in the
CNN video as well, because the camera angle seems to be the same in both video's in
spite of the difference in zoom!
Or in other words, even if the video's were taken from two distinct camera positions,
the difference in the height distance between them, should not be so great as to be
able to "hide" the object from view in the CNN video.
According to Preston, the truck was approximately 2130 feet or 650 meters away from
the pentagon explosion, and approximately 570 feet or 174 meters away from the
If we presume that the white object in the cogburn video is in fact the white plane
seen by the witnesses, then we can calculate how far away from the truck it would be
when it comes into view. If we estimate that one second elapses from the time we
first see the white plane till the explosion happens, and that the plane travels around
500 m/h or ca. 800 km/h, then the plane would be ca. 730 feet or 222 mtrs. from the
explosion when we observe it. (And ca. 1970 feet or 600 mtrs. away from the camera).
This is important to bear in mind if we want to estimate or imagine the true size of the
white plane in the video, in relation to the truck!
But for the time being, free from this presumption, let's just call it the white object.
Why is it seen in the one video and not in the other?
To plant it there in order to create confusion, would be highly counter-productive.
People would immediately suspect deception, so that can be ruled out as untenable!
Could it be just a simple case of the perps erasing the white object in the CNN video,
as well as in other copies they might held, but overlooked the cogburn video perhaps as the 'zooming out' made detection so much more difficult,
because of the smallness
of the white object in this particular clip?
Was it really just basic incompetence? Or something else?
Much to consider. Please give it a shot!
