Video: Daniel Hopsicker at the New England 9/11 Symposium - 5/17/08

Here's a higher quality version than the one that's already out there. It contains the complete interview with Mohamed Atta's American girlfriend Amanda Keller.

Do you happen to have...

Bob, Michele, Mine, Barrie, Sander, and the Q&A panel at the end?

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

I got yours and Michele's

I got yours and Michele's with good quality audio, and Sander, too (although he walked around a lot - not sure about the quality there...). Barrie I got with bad sound before I solved that problem... Unfortunately I missed Bob altogether and had to leave at around 6:30 when the panel was just getting started. I'm planning on putting yours out next...


Thanks. Let me know when it's up (or I guess I'll see it here). Michele's was a real tear jerker. For those who are curious, Cheshire TV was there, and filmed it, and are supposed to send Justin all of their video. We're just waiting.

I also forgot Michael Springmann...

Edit: Any idea when my video will be up?

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

I should have it out by the

I should have it out by the end of the weekend or maybe early next week. I do have Springmann, but missed some of the Q&A...

In all honestly...

I would rather see Springmann first than me... I didn't get to see him. However... if you've already started on me well... alright. :)

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

I appreciate this posting

I have never heard Daniel nor read his book. Now I am dying to get his book and look into more of what Sander Hicks has ( got to meet Sander in Chicago--Chrise Emery introduced him to me, great guy).

There is so much more to the 911 true story that we rarely talk about. More of this is needed.

Thanks for posting!


Got that right.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

You're welcome. I'm glad

You're welcome. I'm glad you appreciate it. His work is a great starting point for those that still believe in the official story...

It's a great video clip from the Symposium....

I listened, and then, sadly, felt compelled to record it. I've got it on .mp3. Hopsicker has stories. It felt like losing one's innocence all over, again.

Thanks for posting it.

...don't believe them!

Yes, he has Interesting

Yes, he has Interesting stories indeed!
It's supposed to be available for download, but unfortunately, Google doesn't seem to do that any more...


Hi what is the google url. I can't seem to go to the url automatically and I would like to place this on my blog.


He talks about that...

In his speech.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Chapter 15

of 9/11 Contradictions deals with it as well.

Can someone clue me in...

As to what the 'accepted' 9/11 movement belief is about Hopsicker and the Amanda Keller story?


1) Hopsicker was fooled and Amanda just naturally went away after telling a tall tale to be a nurse.

2) Keller was telling the truth but pressured later to recant...Hopsicker was right all along.

3) Amanda was sent out as a distraction to throw Hopsicker and others off the 'real' trail.

4) Hopsicker himself is either unaware or negligent on his reporting.

5) The Amanda Keller story itself is disinfo.

6) The Amanda story itself is NOT disinfo, but later made to appear that way.

Is it a little bit of all the above?

Is there something I'm missing as to why the Amanda story is still touted as accurate?

Amanda Keller Was Indeed Mohamed Atta's Girlfriend

The FBI has been intimidating witnesses in Florida to stay quiet and not talk to the media about what they know regarding Mohamed Atta and the crowd he was active in ever since the 9/11 attacks. A number of witnesses have complained about this FBI harassment.

The pressure put on Amanda Keller by the government eventually caused her to falsify her story about making up the account of her being Mohamed Atta's girlfriend. She was telling the truth to begin with.

Indeed, this false retraction by Amanda Keller actually makes her case all the more powerful and convincing, since the published press reports right after 9/11 of a number of other eyewitnesses already confirm that Mohamed Atta was living with Amanda Keller as her boyfriend. We don't need Keller's statements in order to conclusively demonstrate that fact. If Amanda Keller had made up the story, then she also somehow managed to institute an amazing conspiracy within an increadibly short period of time to get people (including such people as the landlords) to give false statements to the press. The reason why it makes this case all the more powerful and convincing is because it shows that something happened with Keller to make her want to put out a false retraction.

Hijackers Just Patsies Who Left Trails To Create A Perception

The apparently controlled hijackers were seemingly compelled by handlers to partake in certain activity that could be later utilized to enhance the official myth. (Attendance at flight schools that just happened to have nothing to do with preparing for 757 & 767 navigation)

They seem to have been utilized by their handlers to participate in other clandestine ops and have other curious connections, yet beyond this they seem to be uninvolved in the real 9/11 plot that seems to have involved covert use of technology and a myth-making media.

I suspect Atta's last moments in this world were spent wondering why the plane he was on was flying so low and fast over Manhattan.

I had to watch the whole thing.

I see he mentioned the whole fiasco in the speech. It was very interesting. Somethings in there I never knew. I really do think at this point the Amanda Keller is lying her ass off about it not being the same Atta. Nobody can lie about an event that didn't happen, and then coincidentally have all the pieces just happen to fit to the false story given.

interesting speech. Is Hopsicker credible?

At about 41:10 He presents an "anecdote" from a book he read of first responder's stories. He tells of a first responder who was doing triage in the plaza of the WTC. This first responder's story, according to Hopsicker, is that he came across a conscious woman who had lost the lower half of her body. Hopsicker relays that according to the story she had fallen out of one of the planes which hit the WTC. Is this possible?

Betsy Metz...

Found the book, and cited the page it's on.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Thanks Jon. Glad to know it checks out.

That anecdote is both amazing and horrible at the same time.

I was just clueless about Mr. Hopsicker before I watched the video. I must say that he has a very likable demeanor and his story was so interesting that I had to watch it all the way through in one sitting. I appreciate the citation and the help. Sometimes I don't trust my own gut, because I have been fooled before. Thanks again for the help Betsy and Jon.

This is not to say that I completely believe the anecdote, but I now believe that the anecdote exists in print, which is what Hopsicker said in his presentation.

It's hard for me to take Hopsicker seriously

when he speaks with great emotion at about the 41 minute point about an interview with an EMT who did triage on the plaza, who encountered a woman--no, make that a half a woman--as Hopsicker cuts his hand across his lower torso as he describes her as "half a woman," who was not only conscious at the time, but lucid and verbal, and in Hopsicker's retelling, the woman says she was a passenger on one of the planes (Damn! I WISH she had been specific as to UA or AA .)

Not only is this so wildly incredible as to be beneath contempt, it speaks so directly to the contentious issue of plane/no-plane that it is indicted with an obvious political motive.
