Loose Change Debunked
In 2003, Dylan Avery began researching the events of September 11, 2001, to create a fictional screenplay regarding what had happened. During this research, he decided that there was enough evidence to prove that the American Government was behind the attacks, not just the terrorists themselves. This led the to the creation of a film called “Loose Change,” which cost about $2,000 to make and it sold about 50k copies in total.
“We don’t ever come out and say that everything we say is 100 percent,” Korey Rowe, a producer for the movie said. “We know there are errors in the documentary, and we’ve actually left them in there so that people discredit us and do the research for themselves.”
Did a Plane Ever Hit the Pentagon?
In the film, Avery states explicitly that there are no photos which show any evidence that a plane actually hit the Pentagon. In one photograph that shoes emergency personnel working on the side of the building, there is no aircraft parts to be seen. The fact is, however, that there are several aircraft components that have documented pictures that were taken at the Pentagon during the recovery. Some of them even have airline logos on them.
Then there’s the fact that a 757 wheel was actually found in the wreckage of the Pentagon as the damage was cleaned up.
There’s also the selective use of sound clips that were used. It’s be like saying that you like the taste of a certain brand of soda, but you don’t drink it because you know that the sugar would be bad for your diabetes. Avery cut out the parts of comments that didn’t suit the theory that was being promoted in the film, which for any documentary that is trying to promote truth shows that it is truly a hoax that needs to be debunked.
If It Isn’t True, Then Why Create the Film?
People do a lot of things for validation. For Avery, he has become a superstar of the 9/11 Conspiracy movement. That’s not to say that everyone believes the events of Loose Change, even within that movement. Many of them simply dismiss his claims.
Part of that reason for the outright dismissal is the fact that many of the screen shots of news clips aren’t from actual newspapers. It’s actually from the American Free Press. That’s a newsletter that is produced by a neo-Nazi group. Even one the credits for research comes from a member of the Loose Change forum that talks about how the Holocaust really wasn’t much of an issue for the world.
There are millions of Jews that would probably disagree. There are millions of veterans and their families who likely would as well.
Loose Change is a hoax that was designed to bring in money and 15 minutes of fame. It’s been polished numerous times so that it can stay in the limelight. The fact is that there is likely more personal ambition at work here and a need for money than anything else. When put to the test, Loose Change comes up lacking and that’s why it is a hoax.
