I believe that the stories of approximately 200 people jumping to their deaths is true. When 9/11 happened...I was at home...and I remember seeing footage of those people jumping....and there was a lot of them. My question is where is that footage now?



that footage is locked away with all the videos of an airplane hitting the pentagon...you know..the ones we will never see

That would be one of the images I was talking about, pretty damn real. It's sad many of them have been abandoned.

and then there is you...who believes the 9/11 fable(according to your signature). interesting, do you ever think for yourself or just personally attack people? yes this thread is quite off but wow...believing the 'real' 911 story...very gullible.


No, I'm not here to simply insult people. I'm here to get the people drinking the conspiracy kool-aid to think for themselves. That's why I posted the link to that awful, awful photograph., because sometimes it requires cruel, hard reality to wake people up out of their conspiracy daydreams...particularly this "the jumpers were all faked" foolishness. If you don't want to accept the 9/11 commission report, fine, but that doesn't give you license to be making up crap on your own to satisfy your abject paranoia, particularly when it's a veiled insult to the victims of the 9/11 attack.

How do YOU explain what happened to that poor fellow? Go ahead, say the gov't murdered some poor innocent person, mutilated his body, and then planted it in the street to get people to believe there were jumpers. I triple dog dare you. It's either that or face the (gasp) possibility your conspiracy stories are rubbish.

Yes they are true. People jump from burning buildings when their only choice is to 1. burn to death 2. jump. Most people will jump.


Here are a pic of jumpers of the The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911.





www.csun.edu...


Pauline Cuoio Pepe was a nineteen-year-old sewing machine operator and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. "It was all nice young Jewish girls who were engaged to be married. You should see the diamonds and everything. Those were the ones who threw themselves from the window," Pepe told a Manhattan historian. "What the hell did they close the door for? What did the think we were going out with? What are we gonna do, steal a shirtwaist? Who the heck wanted a shirtwaist?" asked Pepe. The New York legislature created a commission called The Factory Commission of 1911. Senator Robert F. Wagner, Alfred E. Smith and Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, headed the commission. One of the most significant results of this commission was the creation of the Fire Prevention division as part of the Fire Department. Restrictions were made to prevent fires from happening and to prevent the blockage of escape routes.

Study basic history and you will see people jumping out of burning buildings is nothing new or nothing to be a conspiracy.

"I suggest you read it, and more to the point, everyone should read her book, it has all the answers to the 9/11 event"


Well before i go shell out 20 bux for a book , how about you give me some intresting parts of the book ?


It has all the answers to 9/11 event ? really ? Like the comission report and conspiracy theorists claim?

Seems like everyone has the answers to 9/11 its just to bad they don't all fit together.

I think you mean to say it has , differnt views of 9/11

Yeah, the "thumps" are my point. The sound drums up that gut-wrenching horror. From Leslie Raphael:




26. Yet another staged scene : top left (43:32), Pfeifer giving a sly look to his left, as if waiting for a prompt, his aide Ed Fahey on the right of the picture, fiddling with something out of shot, and between them in the centre, Mike Hurley, Director of Fire Safety at the WTC, staring at something in the distance (the shot opens with a close-up of him doing it, then widens out). Top right (43:33), Pfeifer has apparently been told to look down at his radio — as Fahey is already doing, perhaps. Bottom left (43:33), the start of their head movement as they allegedly react to the crash of someone hitting the ground outside the building, after falling or jumping from the upper floors. Bottom right (43:33), their final position — looking in three different directions — different from each other (compare picture 8b, another fake reaction shot), and different from where each was looking in the first frame — before the camera swings left (west) towards the front of the building. Hurley switches from east to west, Pfeifer from downwards to south-westwards and Fahey from down to south-eastwards.

Something like 200 people were killed that way at the North Tower between 8.46 and 10.28, an average of one every 30 seconds : are we really supposed to believe this would be the reaction of people in the lobby every time they heard that sound ? That 200 times, they would instinctively jump and look around them, to see where the noise was coming from ? The head movement is obviously deliberate and scripted : the crash is arranged, and so is their reaction, down to different directions designed to create artificial suspense.

Here's a thread that really digs into the question.

I have 2 questions about the WTC jumpers

Guess i would not give up as easy as you. S far as you know its just your floor on fire and the firemen are on the way up. But people are different. Fight or flight. I guess you would choose flight haha


Kudos to your naive perspective and the assumption that you're capable of "fighting" an enormous fire. But you've got the mindset of someone who's never been in a terrifying and dangerous situation who likes to make brave claims from behind a computer screen so we can't expect too much from you

I do really think 9/11 was an inside job and a successful psyop. that being said people jumping out of burning buildings isn't a new phenomenon and those fires were very hot. One example I can remember is the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in the 20s those poor women jumped to their deaths to escape the flames and the 9/11 victims did too.


I really do think it was an inside job...inside as in all the way to the top. I do not think it was successful.

With hundreds of people jumping, there would be hundreds of photographs, or is war-porn a new phenomenon?

Until you have been put in a similiar situation you do not know what you would do. I learned as a combat veteran that the body and mind have some strange and uncontrollable reactions when one believes he is in a life threatening situation. Furthermore, its always seemed to be the "tough guys" with the pre combat big talk that were the 1st to pee their pants when the bullets started flying.

I dont mean to be harsh, I am just saying dont so quickly claim what you would do until you have been there.

I think that she is onto something here with those pictures, the images are not that good quality and pixels are easily seen when enlarged.

If i was to make one of these i would have made it properly with photoshop etc.

Well there aren't. So you're free to believe that it was all fake or maybe that people on the ground weren't standing around with cameras taking photos. Let me guess the sick direction you're going to go.

When you enlarge any picture it becomes pixelated. true, the entire picture becomes equally pixelated, not just parts of it. The examples used were highlighting the difference in pixelation between the jumpers and the background. If they were the same image, the pixelation would match.

In truth, I think it's less the case they've been abandoned and more the case they've been withdrawn in a show of respect to the victims of 9/11. These aren't statues or comic book characters, they were real, live people like you and me, with families whose lives are destroyed all over again when the photos of their loves ones are revealed. I talked to one survivor from the north tower who knew the mother of one of the victims on AA175, and she said she told her it feels like she's being stabbed in the heart all over again whenever she sees the footage of the plane hitting the tower. ITo the conspiracy people, the footage is a plaything, but to her, it's the exact moment in time her son is being killed.

In this case, I think...or at least I hope...I'm honoring the victims by using this photo to prove this "jumpers were faked" bit to be complete horse [censored]. I can't say the victims of 9/11 would be any less disgusted by this runaway abject paranoia than we are.

I believe the jumpers are real..I know if i was faceing flames and incredible heat and not being able to breath and there was no hope i would have jumped also..I imagine some jumped just out of pure fear it had to be terrifying and i still pray for these poor souls ..I don't believe for a moment any of that was faked..peace,sugarcookie1
I never post on these conspiracies forums but when i saw the title i just had to and im sure i will be chewed out for what i posted but its what i feel in my heart...

One of the ways propagandists control you is through the use of fear.


...and one of the ways that those damned fool conspiracy web sites control you is by introducing such mind numbingly idiotic foolishness like "the jumpers are all faked" paranoia, which is so asinine that it doesn't warrant discussion. It gets the gullible kool-aid drinkers who think they're being so worldly and sophisticated by reading the nonsense on these fringe web sites all riled up and believing the gov't is constantly plotting to murder us all. Of course, the best way to combat these "evil secret plots" is to buy their books, T-shirts, and in one case I've seen, license plate frames.

So how much money have you spent on this conspiracy foolishness so far? You almost certainly had to have purchased at least one book or T-shirt, or paid to attend at least one conference, for you to be pushing something this outrageous.

FYI in the real world, THIS is what happened to the jumpers. I'll bet Prison Planet never told you about THIS, did the?

WARNING- EXPLICIT IMAGE. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED

The book is $39.95 at Amazon and the book is all about how Dr. Wood "scientificaly" studied the "evidence" of what happened that day.

Let me be frank here, nobody has done a true scientific investigation of the event except Dr. Wood and more to the point, she is triple degreed with a PHD in civil engineering and an MS in structual stress analysis of materials in buildings.........HELLO

If there was ANYBODY on this planet who is more qualified to do the scientific investigation of 9/11, then I'd like to meet them.

Good find. I always wondered why people would jump when they saw a fire. If your in a burning building. Do you just assume the building is going to collapse? No you try to find a way around and if u cant you, you pray the fire department is close. Ese people didnt know the building was going to collapse and they didnt know the whole building was "on fire" so there is no reason for them to jump. If i was i a burning building 50 stories up, i would either try to run through weak spots in the fire or wait for help. Jumping out the window means one solution lol.


I do not believe the OST one bit but this is just ridiculous.There are more then enough videos showing a lot more then 1 person falling or jumping of of one of the towers.

Why would people jump you ask.If one cannot imagine it then try this:

You are hanging out of a broken window or structure out of a burning skyscraper,Thick black smoke is i comming out everywhere and the heat of the nearby fire is starting to scorch you.You end up jumping at some point when it gets worse.In some cases some just fell off i am sure after watching some of these videos.

No way out ,hanging out of a window,You either burn ,suffocate or jump/fall.
You choose,The latter would be quicker and a lot less painfull.

Is the OST true ? No.

Did people fall victim to this event? definatly.
There has never been a reason to fake this as it is a logical consequence.

I cant say whether or not the stories are completely true or false. But I do know that "live" tv isnt live at all. They can edit what you see on the fly and even take things out. It's entirely possible that jumpers were edited out or just not filmed/shown.
