SOURCE PHOTO INDEX (WITH COMMENTARY)
Caustic Logic/The Frustrating Fraud
Last Updated 6/25/07
Skeptics often ask me about the sources of my photo evidence; Why are there no photos or videos of the plane? Why so few pictures of the impact or the building damage? Why so few of THOSE don't catch the impact hole before the section collapsed? Why so few close-ups in general? Why no photos of plane parts, inside or outside the Pentagon? There are many questions, and as many answers, which I'll tackle one section at a time.
I have seen no good reason to suspect fakery in any of these pieces of evidence, and certainly have no problem passing on where I got the photos and who has vouched for their validity. So here is a partial working list of some of the shots I've used, at full size, with links and info. I will catalog all the relevant shots sooner or later, these are just the first.
Pre-Collapse Damage Photos: September 11, 9:37-9:57 am

Ninteen minutes after the 9:37:45 crash of the Boeing 757, the impacted segment collapsed. Thus after 9:57, the area was effectively closed off to most photographers, who were pushed back to a distance as authorities took control of what they felt was a dangerous scene. This is an important clue to why the earliest photos taken, from impact to collapse, are in fact the best evidence of a 757 impact. As we are pushed farther from the actual evidence, the room for mystery grows. Step one in the propogation of the Fraud.
Daryl Donley. Downed lamp post.Taken just about 9:38 am. This photo clearly shows the initial explosion of the impact. The often-argued case that this flash is indicative of explosives instead of/in addition to jet fuel, is something I haven't studied and I have no specific opinion on yet.

Cpl. Jason Ingersoll, USMC. Source: Around. Attributed to him via its similarity to the above shot. I'm pretty sure it's yet another Ingersol classic. We are indebted greatly to this man. For goood or ill. This is the one most widely used to argue for an intact column at line 14 on the second floor.

Debris inside (or from inside) the building: September 11-14
Many of the photos below are from a 2002 article by Sarah Roberts posted at Rense.com
As she explained her reasoning, "since most of the plane reportedly entered the building, we should also look for images of debris inside the building." Among the reasons for a dearth of such images: "Most other photos remain in the private hands of investigators, rescue workers, and others who were inside the building. Many images are officially classified." But where the veil of secrecy and the diffusion of evidence were overcome, we see again strong evidence of a Boeing 757 having hit the building.
