New Documentary Covers 9-11 Commission Report

At least, that's what the director indicates here; she also throws around the word "truth" a lot.

"I hope the truth does not get lost amongst the fiction," Linda Ellman, a former NBC News producer, who made her film directorial debut with "On Native Soil," told Reuters.

"I don't have a problem with fictionalized stories or fictionalized efforts about 9/11, because people need to be kept aware and should never forget. I just hope the truth isn't replaced by fiction, because the truth is shocking," she said.

Sounds like a conspirazoid, but apparently she's not:

Unlike those works, Ellman's goal with "On Native Soil," airing next month on cable channel Court TV, was to stay true to the 9/11 Commission Report -- the government's account of the suicide hijackings that killed about 3,000 people -- and present an historically accurate version of events as they unfolded, almost in real time.

"The movie, narrated by Kevin Costner and Hilary Swank, includes never-before-seen interviews with victims' family members, as well as familiar footage of the day's events"

The families that don't exist or the families which don'tknow their relatives are safe in an island? I wonder which ones?

Hmm, Hilary Swank was on the cover of the Loosers' Vanity Fair. She posed in a bikini just to distract people from the truth. She must be part of the cover-up. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if she were in charge of the whole thing!

What is depressing is that simply because this woman was talking about the "truth" We almost immediately assumed she was a CT nutjob. When in fact she actually IS talkng about the TRUTH!

How did we let the CT nutjobs (can I still say "nutjobs"?) take over the word "truth" and make it mean crazy theories?

That is the saddest thing I've seen in weeks. I now fear for civilization.

Jujig, that's something that bothers me as well. I'm kind of amused also that we're now "skeptics".

Ok Screwies, better hope Val McClatchey's infamous red barn/mushroom cloud photo is a fake!

Like, hey man, if the photo is I mean fake, does that mean that the plane didn't crash, or that it did, or does it mean that there was no plane or that there was?

Hehe. From Killtown's link:

After taking this famous snapshot, she never walked up the road beyond the horizon to see what she allegedly photographed. Instead, she just heard the sirens and went into the kitchen and put on a barbecue for the rescue crews as if she was anticipating the events. She cooked for the crews with her electricity knocked out???

Yes Einstein, it IS possible to "barbecue" without electricity. BBQ's tend to be gas operated, outdoor appliances. Yet another shining example of CT logic.

Killtown, that's actually an interesting post. I'll link it later today.

It is because a lot of what goes on here and at the forum is debate with CTers, therefore, they are constantly using the word "truth" for their take on things, where as we tend to use words like "facts" or "evidence". As a result, our sense of what the word "truth" stands for, is bent through the messed up lens of a CTers glasses.

Killtown, please start using the word "alleged" correctly.

There was no alleged crash, there was a crash. Period.
