Ok someone please clue me in...I'm just reading bits and pieces of this story so I'm confused as HELL. On top of that, I see this quote under many
moderators' posts on this thread...
"This post was part of a special Halloween Homage to Orson Wells.
Jumping out from behind the server and shouting BOO!"
So I dont know what to believe. Moderators, lets give a recap of what is going on for all the people who werent here on ATS for the past few days.
1. WHAT THE HECK WAS THIS HOAX THAT WAS PLAYED ON ATS MEMBERS?
2. If something did crash, WHY WOULDNT THE PRESS KNOW ABOUT IT?
3. WHY WOULDNT THE PRESS REPORT IT? FREEDOM OF F!@$$% SPEECH!(sorry for the language) I should have been seeing coverage from CNN. CNN has covered
other non-terror related explosions so WHY NOT THIS ONE? In addition, the press has big mouths, so if they knew about a story that they had to keep on
the down low, it would eventually propogate to many other press stations nationally.
4. I hear this was some military training, contamination issue, etc. Regardless of the circumstances, if this area was quarantined off to the people,
then why would pictures be taken? Only army personel would be taking nice CLEAR pictures. But they sure wouldnt give them out to friends or family.
Isnt that illegal since everything was hush hush?
5. As for the first image posted...looks like an image from a video game I played a few months ago lol. Like one of those cut scenes. That was my
first impression. Someone please prove me and these other concerns of mine wrong, if the opposite is true.
6. In addition, Lets assume here something did happen, well they obviously have an incompetent military camera man taking pictures. Becuase if this
story was so big and so secret, would you really see former military veterans WITH THEIR KIDS at that contamination site?
I'm not trying to be ignorant here, but if someone can please address my points, I'll be more then willing to keep an open mind. As for now I'm
labeling this as one big hoax.
