    My best advice to you.....

    Delete this thread.

    You have just ventured into the term "Mutt" you asked about before.

    If it's the one made by two brothers(from France?), I saw the first third or half.
    They were doing a documentary about a NYFD station when the attack happened.
    The part I saw looked pretty good. Was well done.
    Two film makers and a station doing their stuff when events fell into their lap.
    I don't know about any accusations of it or parts of it being fake. Will look further into that.
    The one I saw, which sounds like the one your asking about:

    Other films. Good and not-good mixed together:

    ....hey kid, you can't be serious!

    By the way, my ex-wife's cousin watched the plane in DC hit the Pentagon from his front porch....I wonder if that was "authentic"?

    the documentary made by the 2 french brothers(Naudet is their family name)is a great documentary.when i bought the dvd,a part of my money was sent to FDNY academy,but that was many years ago.

    I'm positive its authentic. I bought my copy in 2002 I think, just after it was released on a recommendation by a good friend who is a Captain on FDNY. He knew a recognised several of the brothers involved, some who never made it.
    I use it to this day teaching in third world countries just what it actually means to be able to wear the name of FIREFIGHTER!!

    Question

    Maybe I'm missing something too? I didn't take his post to ask if 9/11 was authentic, just this particular DVD. I was approached in D.C. a few years back by a guy who claimed to be FDNY and was peddling a dvd out of his suitcase, that he said he made with interviews of FDNY guys. I later heard this was a sham, could this be the same case? I'll check the one he sold me for the name, I never actually watched it.

    WTF!! I know 9/11 was an actual event you @ssholes! I was asking about the dvd. I was hoping that I would get an answer by sombody that knew a little bit about it. If you think the conversation is a waste of time then don't waste my time by replying to it.

    If you want to put someone down to pump up your ego this is not the place, okay. Have the balls to do it to sombody's face!

    Apology accepted.

    I will field your question somewhat.
    Your initial post was actually somewhat vague and came across as questioning the authenticity of 9/11 itself. Of course these forums are the last place one should remotely and publicly consider whether 9/11 was real or not. From your previous post it's more apparent that that was not your intention. Hence the "mutt" label.

    Watch your temper. Take a deep breath and re-read your posts before you click "Post".

    Merry Christmas.
    Stay safe,
    bam

    I am sorry, I lost my temper. Maybe I am in the wrong, will you just explain to me why this thread makes me a mutt, idiot, and poser?

    Thank you... Now to clear things up. Sorry for the confusion.

    I watched a documentary called 9/11. It was very well done, an amazing dvd realy. I had no question about it being fake at first, but then I went to you tube and watched a different video. This you tube video picks "9/11 documentary" appart. It claims that "9/11 documentary" was fabricated and fake, which got me thinking. So I decided to post on firehouse in hopes that someone might know more about it and enlighten me.

    BTW, outside of the heat of argument that graph is pretty funny.

    Don't go any further with those thoughts.
    Don't waste your time with these conspiracy theorists.

    Company 141, there is no need for you to apologize. It's apparent that a few posters here could use "Eats Shoots and Leaves" for Christmas. It seems some of us are so defensive about the 9/11 conspiracies we don't really read the post before throwing out the insults.

    Company 141, you are the one owed an apology. I think your intial post was quite clear regarding the authenticity of the DVD, not the event. Some posters here have the reading comprehension of a rock. As I said in earlier post, I bought my first copy in VHS on recommendation of a personal friend on FDNY. He knew at least 2 people on that tape, the Chaplain who died and the intial on scene commander. I think it is a tremendously moving tribute to the gallantry, the courage and the actions of not only FDNY but polce and other emergency service workers who lost their lives. I hope you enjoy it.

    Default nice choice of words

    I can't say that I've ever actually "enjoyed" watching this video.

    Perhaps enjoy was a thoughtless choice of words. Appreciate may be better in that the movie shows as closely as possible the efforts, bravery, dedication and loss suffered during this horrific incident. The movie, I feel was very well done.
