4 people? One of the most important religious areas in the world and only four people saw it? riiiight.
Your reading comprehension skills aren't really up to par. He very clearly states that HUNDREDS saw the phenomena and that there were 4 people that FILMED it.
Pay closer attention if you want to thump your chest next time.edit on 15-4-2011 by FlawlessVictory because: (no reason given)

He spoke of 'disaster to come' and think about all of the things that have happened since '97 (much higher frequency and higher death toll than others wouldn't you say?)
Actually Skeptic Overlord recreated the video to show exactly how it was made. And other people have shown that the audio tracks were edited into the videos. 4 people? One of the most important religious areas in the world and only four people saw it? riiiight.
Unless there are multiple eyewitnesses (and because of technology these days) multiple videos, posted sightings often are fake.

Too bad almost all the footage in the video has already been debunked....

GE-1 HIT WITH APPARENT E.M.P. DURING "AREA-51" CONFESSION
Art Bell hosts "Coast-to-Coast AM," a nightly talk show from Pahrump, Nevada, a small town near "Area 51" (an airbase which the U.S. government officially denies the existence of, despite the massive size of the complex. UFO's are frequently seen near this site.)
Art's radio program is relayed from the studio in Pahrump to the network headquarters by satellite GE-1. At about 1AM EST, Friday, September 12, 1997, he designated one phone line for Area 51 employees to call in and "spill the beans." Several interesting and convincing callers took the bait.
Then came one bizarre call from an obviously distraught and terrified man who claimed to be a former Area 51 employee recently discharged for "medical" reasons. He cited malevolent extraterrestrials at Area 51 and an impending disaster that the government knew would take out "major population centers." Midway through this call (according to GE engineers) the satellite's "Earth sensor lost lock" and the craft rolled into an attitude where it no longer pointed at the uplinks, causing 50 channels to go off-air for about 30 minutes.
Shortly after the outage began, the live internet video feed from Art's studio was lost as well. Unaware of these events, Bell continued talking to the caller for another minute during the outage until he heard a scream and the phone went dead. A reporter from Penthouse visiting the studio to gather information for a story about the program witnessed the event and furiously took notes. Minutes later, Bell received a call from his network on a conventional analog "hotline" saying that he was "off the air."
He checked the uplink transmitter and saw that it had suffered complete loss of communication with GE-1. At this point they resumed transmission on a 56k digital phone line and went back on the air. Then the analog "hotline" to the network cut out and Art was unable to speak to network engineers. One of the first callers after the outage was someone who claimed to be from Area-51 "security." He said that his job was to "close gaps," the network had been "pulsed" and that we "would not hear from the caller again." (An ElectroMagnetic Pulse is a method of overloading electronic equipment in a target area; EMP generators were funded under the original SDI research. The phenomenon was discovered by accident during the 1960's when the phone network in Hawaii was disabled by a nuclear test 800 miles distant.)
Speculation about an EMP continued as this was "verified" by several callers: A man from Kingston (also near area 51) said he was on hold waiting to go on the air, and both his home telephone lines went dead. Another caller, an RF engineer employed at Hughes AeroSpace in Tucson (and an expert on EMP shielding), stated that he had suffered "cloud bounce" from the pulse and his personal computer and digital watch were wiped clean. A third caller reminded the audience that author Nick Begich stated in his book "Angels don't Play this HAARP" that a military antenna array in Alaska has the capability to remove individual satellites from service and generate such pulses. (Incidentally, the HAARP design bears a great similarity to the work of Nikola Tesla, who publicly made claims about the potential of his inventions to generate EMP anywhere on the planet.)
Finally, another caller reminded the audience of an event several months prior where it was confirmed that a number of employees at the Cheyenne Mountain nuclear-hardened underground base convinced as many friends and family as they could to move immediately to a remote location in South America. Art closed the show by speculating on whether (in the mind of the government) the "enemy" of National Security had now become the American people.

TRANSCRIPT: The following is a verbatim transcript from last night's Art Bell Show at
approximately 1:45 A.M. Friday Sept. 12, 1997 (2:35:42 RealAudio elapsed
Art: On my Area 51 line, you're on the air, hello.
Male caller: Hello, Art?
Caller [sounds frightened]: I don't have a whole lot of time.
Art: Well, look, let's begin by finding out if you're using this line
properly or not.
Caller: OK, in Area 51?
Art: Yes. Are you an employee or are you now?
Caller: I'm a former employee. I, I was let go on a medical
discharge about a week ago and, and... [chokes] I kind of been running
across the country. Damn, I don't know where to start, they're, they're
gonna, they'll triangulate on this position really soon.
Art: So you can't spend a lot of time on the phone, so give us something
Caller [voice breaking up with apparent suppressed crying]: OK, um, um, OK,
what we're thinking of as aliens, Art, they're extradimensional beings,
that, an earlier precursor of the space program they made contact with.
They are not what they claim to be. They've infiltrated a lot of aspects
of, of, of the military establishment, particularly the Area 51.
The disasters that are coming, they, the military, I'm sorry, the
government knows about them. And there's a lot of safe areas in this world
that they could begin moving the population to now, Art.
Art: So they're not doing, not doing anything.
Caller: They are not. They want those major population centers wiped out so
that the few that are left will be more easily controllable...."
Art [fragment]: ...discharged...
Caller [sobbing, then fragment]: I say we g ....
[Dead air for 25 seconds, followed by theme song and repeat of Mark Fuhrman
interview talking about marijuana busts]
[2:29:43 elapsed time] Art: We are now on a backup system....The entire
transmitting system went down...
Art's radio network engineer later reported that the network's
communication satellite lost 50 channels (including Art's feed) at that
moment, possibly due to a "lost earth sensor" (so it no longer pointed to
the earth station).
Art reported that the telephone conversation continued off the air for
about a minute, when the caller "screamed" and "screeched" and the
telephone connection went dead. Art also reported that his Web site
registered 5 million hits just after the outage.
Later, a Tucson caller who he said worked for Hughes (which Art said
supplies microwave systems to Area 51) reported that his computer memory
and electronic watch were zapped at the same time that the broadcast went
dead, and suggested both events may have been caused by a cloud-reflected
EMP (electromagnetic pulse, which are created by nuclear explosions or by
special EMP generator).
A caller claiming he was with Area 51 security said: "[We're] Professional
cleaners, you know they dig a lot of holes in the desert...I use a lot of
acid....We worked with satellite operations in the Gulf War when we cut
down certain transmissions...." He predicted the caller would not be
calling in again.
1. Test of radio network and public response to an EMP pulse disabling the
late-night national radio talk show that people are most likely to listen
to in event of a disaster.
2. Psyop media manipulation to achieve a specific public effect, perhaps
related to a planned bioterrorist or other attack (or simulated attack) in
certain cities. Caller sounded convincing but may have, of course, been
subjected to electrical shock or other duress in a controlled environment
during the call.
1. Did anyone else note an EMP-like effect (malfunctions or damage to
computers, calculators, watches, VCRs, modems, and other electronic
devices) at approximately 1:45 A.M. Friday morning? If so, what was the
damage and what is your location?
2. How unusual is this type of communications satellite outage?
so I'll go ahead and assume the rest are bullsh:t, too'
Besides by your theory, all the above cases MUST be true because they were seen by hundreds, but yet you still try to debunk them.
The amount of people who see something does not determine its validity, it can be just as real if only person sees, if only one video is taken.
I assumed people have read through the threads on the Jerusalem UFO's. It starts getting good around Here.
SO, it is not hard to recreate anything with CGI, it doesn't mean the original is not real. The video from main stream media stated 4 videos were available and other witnesses. I am sceptical but to say it is CGI when there are independent witnesses seems almost like clutching at straws.

I had read the written script from that phone call before but hearing the fear in that mans voice puts no doubt in my mind that it was for real. Not to mention the loss of signal to literally shut down a radio station; thats a pretty big feat ....pretty freaky stuff. That call was dated in 1997.....is there any record of hearing from that guy since then?!?!
He also gives the same scared voice to prove it was him, admits to calling other times with other hoaxes, and even admits that when the station was knocked off the air it even freaked him out.
