Soon after Sept. 11, 2001, this photo began circulating via email. It appears to show a tourist posing for a snapshot on top of the World Trade Center as a hijacked plane approaches from behind.

These are the notorious 7/7 bombers on the way to the 'terror' attack. The figure on the extreme right isn't even there. He was drawn in. A Hollywood special effects man deconstructed the photo for me. The edge of the sidewalk was jagged. All curbs are pretty much straight. However, the figure at the rear by the fence is the dead giveaway the photo was fake. There are three steel rails to the fence. One is in front of him at waste level. One is behind him at the arm level. The bar at head level enters one ear and comes out the other. There is a fuzzy portion over the head showing pictures of different mega pixels were mixed together. OOOPS! We didn't see that did we?

In another famous photograph of the Tsarnaev brothers outed by authorities as the Boston 'bombers' notice the noise around both men. I suspect they too were drawn in after the fact. The rear image has a clear white line inside the crotch as a clear cut is observed. I would venture to say fake. Never surrender your liberty to a photograph supplied by a tyrannical government or lying propaganda media. They have a track record. They are not Moses bringing stone tablets from a mountain. They are liars and deceivers.
