American anti aircraft gunners on Diamond Head, said there were no enemy aircraft at Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 - Source: MovieTone News, in a clip that appeared to have been filmed on location the same day, that was included in the first cut of 911 hit piece Loose Change!


Quote:
Wheeler Army Air Field, December 7, 1941, smoke coming from planes on a row of undamaged aircraft, upwind of a conflagration of other burning planes, and no blast damage or bomb craters anywhere, says the aircraft were deliberately set alight at ground level.

No one appears to be too concerned, spectators are cramming every vantage point on an as yet undamaged vessel, surely if an attack were underway it would be the last place to be!
