Courtsey of a French reporter, who KNEW these 'terrorists' were going to fire a missile at this particular plane a day in advance and did nothing about it. She sure got some good pictures though, don't you think?:rolleyes:

No wonder everyone hates the media/french. :thumbsdow

Could be a canned stock photo of a missile launch. Media does that all the time.

Paranoid much?

Media does? I really wonder how much stock footage the media has of a missle hittings a cargo plane with footage of the cargo plane close up....

You arent selling tinfoil hats are you?

They do it all the time, and they openly admit it. It's not even deceitful. How many times did you see the 1st person footage of that smartbomb hitting the building during desert storm. They used the same shot over and over, because it fit with what they were talking about.

I'm not saying the actual impact pictures were pre-taken - but the shot of the guy shooting a bazooka certainly could have come from any number of rebel camp photo shoots (note its the only pic with a timestamp, and looks totally different from the others).

There is absolutely no way for you guys to verify that she had known of the attack. She was in the right place at the right time. She was within 100 meters of Iraqi freedom fighters, who were armed with Missile Launchers, SAMs, and light weaponry. Judging from the pics, they were in a remote area and an attempt to notify anyone of the incident would probably have been worthless as these guys wouldn't have stuck around to see who was coming for them.

Personally, I think it was a stupid comment to blame this reporter who was alone and within close distance of armed men and women. Further, one could justify the United States as failing to prevent the second plane from hitting the building when they could have shot it down and saved an entire building. Or better yet, why not blame the owners of the camera that recorded the 9/11 attacks for not notifying authorities of a second plane
:rolleyes:

Actually, she admitted to knowing about the attack before hand in her peice. It was posted on the internet a few days ago but I can't find it anymore.

If that's the case, she should be arrested and jailed. I found no evidence in the link you posted to state this, however. It would be interesting if you could find that link, though.

the REAL photographer is Jerome Sessini a french photographer (source from NEWSWEEK) and it took him two months to arrange a meeting with the iraqi resistance groups. only reason he couldn't do anything but snap pictures was because he was with the actual resistance group.

THINK ABOUT IT. Would you go "Hey, you idiot , you cant do that!" when you are surrounded by men with guns that will kill you?


"Sessini looked on in horror- taking pictures - as two rebels hoisted missles onto their shoulders and tried to blow a cargo plane out of the sky. 'When you are with this kind of group, you canot say, 'No I dont agree.' They will shoot you,' Sessini explaind last week. 'They wanted to say, 'Look what we can do.''" -Newsweek, December 8th, 2003

My understanding of the article when i read it was that 'SHE' knew about the plan before hand, and she did have opertunity to let authorities know. However, the article was in French, France French no less, and I'll admit that my French is a little rusty so I may have misinterpreted some things.

OK did a little searching and came up with this:

http://209.157.64.200/focus/f-news/1029476/posts


The images were taken by one of the magazine's photographers, Jerome Sessini, who was with the attackers -- described in the accompanying article as "Iraqi guerrillas" -- at the time of Saturday's missile strike, editor-in-chief Alain Genestar told AFP on Wednesday.
He said Sessini and a special correspondent sent to Iraq (news - web sites), Claudine Verniez-Palliez, had been with the group for several days beforehand and were unaware they were about to witness the attack.
"They had been asked to come see caches of arms very close to Baghdad and didn't discover the real reason for the operation until the last minute," Genestar said.

That makes sense now.
