Ari Fleischer returns with faked airplane image

Beginning today, Freedom’s Watch, a new right-wing front group for the White House, "will unveil a month-long, $15 million television, radio and grass-roots campaign" to pressure Congress to continue supporting President Bush’s disastrous Iraq strategy. The group, which is "funded by high-profile Republicans who were aides and supporters of President Bush," is headed by a familiar face from the Bush war effort: former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer.

Think Progress links to Washington Post mentioning "Freedom's Watch":

The group's television ads are linking Iraq to 9/11, a problem addressed well here, but unfortunately in a way that just reinforces the larger fraud:

There is a much more serious problem. The image of an airplane at 20 seconds into the below video is fake. It appears to be one of the images broadcast on 9/11. Regardless, it is fake.

YouTube has apparently disabled comments on this video.

I am not dishonoring the veteran in the video, who has sacrificed a great deal for his country. His courage speaks for itself, and he has acted honorably based on what his government told him and what we all believed for years.

I will not allow a deadly fraud to pass without comment.

Faked images of planes were also rebroadcast by the History Channel at the beginning of their "9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Faction."

The official "9/11 Truth Movement" claims that the mainstream media is itching to discredit 9/11 truth seekers with the no-planes/TV Fakery theory, which is said to be inherently absurd and off-putting to the putative average citizen.

One might expect, therefore, that the History Channel would take this opportunity to discuss and discredit the no planes/TV Fakery theory. They did not do that, and I would say for good reason: once viewed critically, the broadcast images are obviously faked.
