When I was in college the news channels ran a video of a truck driver being beheaded by "terrorists"
The first time I watched it I was horrified. The second time I was more aware of what I was watching. By the third time through I noticed that at the
very moment that the terrorist grabbed the trucker, the film skipped ahead.
I pointed this out to anyone who would listen. No one remembered the cut in the film. They only remembered that they saw a guy get his head cut off.
This doesn't mean that I think the government did it. Or that it was a conspiracy. I just noticed that no one seemed to recognize that the film had
been edited. Someone, somewhere had a reason to edit the film right before the killing but let the death be shown on national tv.
Do I want to see the footage? No. But that doesn't mean that I should be denied access to it. I can name several reasons for this footage to be made
public. Academically, psychologically, hell even artistically. It's not up to me to say what someone might use this information for. Plenty of people
are ready to put in work based on speculation. Give them the footage and help put a lot of the conspiracy theories to rest.
To deny the public this knowledge only fuels wild accusations.
I'd watch it once. Just so I could be sure that I had witnessed the truth. If I saw anything out off whack I might watch it twice.
It's still pretty horrific anyway.
