The voice really sounds the same.All visions aside-just listen to the voice-and how he pronounces words.And the tones-seems to match.I can believe
anything of our goverment-they exist to BS ths people.
I agree Damma. I am a musician/recording engineer by trade, so I listen to things all day long. Had I seen it without audio, I don't know if I would
of come to this conclusion as the video of Harley Guy that I can find is mostly medium grade at best. I really hope someone steps forward with a Hi
Res copy of Harley guy. That is really all we need to make this 100% sure.
I also have a letter to Rick Leventhol (the reporter) all ready to go, but I am kinda of nervous about sending it. For some reason, I feel like this
could really open up a can of worms that I am trying to work up the courage to overcome. If I send this letter, I know my name will go onto a list
that I don't want to be on. I want this guy to be found out, but I don't want to die to do it, but then again, neither did any of the 3000 people.
Plus, I'm really bummed out if this is really Riggle, I really like him. I started a letter to his facebook account, but after I read it back, I
could sense how hostile I was being, because I was so pissed off, so I didn't hit send. Plus, I feel like a snitch or something....damn I hate the
mind games this stuff plays with you. I know what the right thing to do is, but it is so damn hard to do it without hurting people....aghhh.
Here is the copy of the letter to Mr. Leventhol...tell me what you guys think.
Hello Mr. Leventhal.
I am writing to you today in regards to your coverage of Sept. 11th, 2001. You had interviewed a gentleman who gave his description of witnessing the
second plane hit the WTC tower and his subsequent description of the towers collapsing….”due to structural failure, because the fires were just
too intense”. He was wearing a baseball cap and a Harley Davidson shirt. Hopefully you will remember which man I am speaking of.
The reason I am asking you about him is because, when I originally saw your interview in the archives on various sites, that man seemed familiar to me
for some reason, but I could not place him how or why he seemed familiar to me. I did some research and found out that no one knows who this man is
and how he knew so much at the time of your interview such as, the structures failing “because the fires were just too intense”. I’ve found as I
search, that he is a mystery man of sorts, in the fact that he was never identified nor ever heard from again. In all fairness, the only copy I can
find of this interview seams cut off or something. You never hear the question you asked him, just a fly in to the footage and him giving his answer.
I would love to know what you had asked him, perhaps it would of given his answer more context and not been so ominous of a reply for the average
viewer to question.
A few days ago, I was watching the “Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. I got up to do something and as I was away from the computer (still listening to
the show) a voice came on that sounded very familiar to me, like the Gentlemen you had interviewed. It was the voice of Rob Riggle the comedian. He
plays a correspondent on the “Daily show” or used to I should say, regardless….His voice struck me and within a few seconds of hearing his
voice, I knew who it was (or who it sounded like)….The Harley Guy from your interview.
I told some friends about this and they pulled some pictures from your interview (sorry for the quality, best we could find) and pictures of Riggle
and did a comparison which I have enclosed with this email. We found they look almost Identical from what we can gather from your interview video
still. It was even more interesting to visit robriggle.com and read his military bio where he lists that he was a first responder in the attacks of
9/11 along with his Marine Reserve unit in Manhattan. Riggle was reactivated from the reserves on Sept. 12th with orders to be sent to Afghanistan
where he would be in and out of for the next 3 years.
After discovering that Mr. Riggle was a first responder whose job in the Marines is as a Public Affairs liaison and also the fact that he was employed
by the city of New York in the same role, I surmise that he would have been a contact in such an event for the News Media and City and State Officials
and quite possibly the man you interviewed that day.
The following is from robriggle.com...
“From North Carolina, Captain Riggle accepted an extension on active duty and was assigned to be the Deputy Director Public Affairs, New York City.
While assigned to the New York office, Capt. Riggle was deployed again to Albania (Joint Task Force Shining Hope). From there he was attached briefly
to the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit Special Operations Capable (24th MEU SOC) and went to Kosovo as part of Operation Joint Guardian.
Capt. Riggle left active duty in the summer of 2000 and immediately joined the Marine Corps Reserves. In the fall of 2001 Capt. Riggle was in New York
City. His reserve unit, MTU-17, stationed in Manhattan, were among the first military responders to the attacks on the World Trade Centers. Capt.
Riggle was activated from Sept. 12th through the 30th, 2001, where he worked at ground zero moving rubble by hand in the bucket brigades. On November
10th (the Marine Corps birthday) Capt. Riggle received orders back to active duty for one year. He was assigned to Central Command (CENTCOM) in Tampa,
Capt. Riggle reported for duty at CENTCOM on Nov. 17th. He left for Afghanistan on Nov. 30th. He was assigned to work with the 3rd Battalion, 5th
Special Forces Group in Mazar-E-Sharif, Afghanistan. Upon returning from Afghanistan in February of 2002, Capt. Riggle worked in the Joint Operations
Center at CENTCOM, until he redeployed to Afghanistan in the summer of 2002 to help support an investigation board there.
Upon the successful completion of his year long tour. Major Riggle returned to New York and continued to pursue comedy. Two years after his return in
the fall of 2004, Major Riggle became a cast member on Saturday Night Live… one of his life long dreams. Major Riggle is still a member of the
Marine Corps Reserves today. He has served 19 years total, 9 years active duty, 10 years in the reserves.”
I appreciate any help that you can give in this regard. I know recalling that day is probably not on your priority list and I want to thank you for
staying level headed in the face of so much horror. My heart goes out to you and your family.
