Regardless what you think about the whole did they or didn’t they conspiracy theory behind the moon landing by the crew of Apollo 11 back in 1969, you can’t deny that the ‘lost’ footage above is more than just a tad fishy.
Why go to all the trouble of faking pictures of earth with smoke and mirror techniques to make it seem a lot further away than actually is, giving the impression that you’re halfway to your intended destination, when in reality it’s just outside the window and you’re nowhere near the moon? And what’s with the third party on the radio transmissions?
The video is an excerpt from a documentary called ‘A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon‘.

Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? Smacks of one of those crazy tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theories conjured up in somebody’s basement. But what if this claim, this allegation didn’t come from a jobless 35 year-old Internet geek who still lives with his mother, what if this came from Richard A. Clarke the Counter Terrorism Chief who served under Bill Clinton and George W Bush, a man who for 30 years worked as a U.S government employee? Would you believe it then?
In a nutshell Clarke alleges that the CIA tried to make contact with two Al Qaeda operatives who had successfully managed to set themselves up in America, (post 9/11), in an effort to recruit them and have them work as double agents. They needed to do this because they had no-one working for them inside Al Qaeda. Of course the plan went tits up, but instead of alerting the White House the CIA covered up their mistake and kept quiet about the whole affair before, during and after the 9/11 attacks.
