(Newser) – Just released video from a New York police helicopter reveals the horror of the terror attack on the World Trade Center as it happens. The 17-minute footage shows incredibly close footage of black smoke billowing from the towers in the biggest terror attack ever on US soil. "Holy shit," says one cop as the crew watches later as the first tower crumbles to dust from a helicopter landing pad. The video was obtained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the Freedom of Information Act and was sent with several photos anonymously to the Cryptome website.

Don't know from any conspiracies but watching real time while innocent people jumped off the buildings was THE most sickening memory I will ever have. Really don,t need ANY more vid.

I just want to know where all the people killed in those planes went? Are they on an island somewhere?

I've been in demolition and construction for my entire working life. Anyone who thinks those airplanes brought the buildings down exactly in their own footprint is a gullible fool-a True Believer. Thousands of architects, airline pilots, structural engineers, physicists and chemical engineers know that of all the possible scenarios, the Cheney story is the least plausible. Rogues within governments plan false-flag operations all the time-what's the big deal?
