Another Fake Syria
Nuclear Site Photo?

By Ted Teietmeyer
In November 2007 an aerial photo of a destroyed Syrian nuclear site was released, on which I performed a brief photo analysis. It is still not known to this day if this image is supposed to be an aerial photo or a satellite image.
Here is a quick review of the previous faked images.[1]
Fig. 1 - Original Syrian Reactor photo before and after destruction [1]
Fig. 2 - Vectors clearly show problems with shadow angles in impossible places in this 2007 photo on two opposite sides of raised structures. Compare shadows of orange arrow and yellow arrows. This isn,t possible with sunlight as the only light source.
Fig. 3 Recently published photo of the same destroyed nuclear weapons site [2]
Fig. 4 - Enlargement of Fig. 3 recent photo before applying analysis. At first glance everything looks normal.
In Fig. 6, vector lines have been added to show general sunlight originating from bottom of photo. Vectors were added which align the edges of the shadows with the structure associated with the shadow. Arrows on vector lines establish direction of sunlight:
Fig. 5 Example of sunlight vector applied to a building. Note how the vector line is parallel with the edges of the shadow.
Fig. 6 Graphics applied to some of the problem areas in Fig. 4.
Red and green vectors should all be parallel.
A number of anomalies exist in this photo which we shall explore. The following is an explanation of graphics shown in Fig. 6.
* Right side of photo shows a shadow on what appears to be a dry pond with raised walls. We will use this structure as the reference point for the photo, since it has two roughly parallel walls that clearly give us the direction of sunlight. Note the red vector showing the direction of sunlight across the structure. Enlarged area of the pond (see blue box) shows the correct location for the pond,s shadow required for it to be parallel with the green lines. Yellow circle shows the approximate location of the shadow to match this object,s shadow with other man-made structures.
* White circles show some of the shadows are considerably larger than the structures which appear to have made them.
* Orange circles show shadows that appear to be far shorter than the apparent structures in front of them.
* Green sunlight vectors appear to be generally parallel for the shadow angles of various structures. But these do not parallel the sun,s direction for the dry pond.
It appears that dozens of buildings may have been pasted into a desert image of a small town at various angles. Doing so would create a certain air of authenticity for the Syrian nuclear location. This may also explain the small, grainy, low-quality image. Intelligence agencies can produce images of staggering quality that easily show someone reading a newspaper from orbit. Yet this image contains several distorted areas (blue circles.) These areas are not likely to be focus or JPEG compression tile problems, since nearby areas of the same distance from the center of the image are in focus.
Military installations are usually laid out in orderly city-block style, not helter-skelter at odd angles such as what we see here. If this was a real location designed to use a town as a cover-up, buildings would probably be constructed parallel or perpendicular to roads and streets to more closely resemble a village or town. In Fig. 6 we see numerous buildings, missing driveways or parking areas for vehicles. These were not highlighted since the added graphics would make the image too cluttered.
Fig. 7 Falkirk, Scotland aerial photo shown at original size. Vectors show that numerous buildings and trees at various angles to the Sun produce the same shadow angles. [3] (Image of this city was selected for both shadow clarity and various building angles and for no other reason.)
If a photo of a "destroyed facility must be faked, to conceal the location used to create the fake image it cannot resemble any place on Earth. One could start with an aerial view of a desert town and modify it. A desert would be a perfect setting for this because sand is relatively featureless. If this is not done, someone may recognize the village or town and expose the cover-up.
So why was Fg. 4 faked? Perhaps this desert nuclear facility never existed. The purpose of faking this image would be to stir up public opinion against Syria as a nuclear threat. Often salesmen call this tactic "planting seeds in a potential customer's mind. Something is mentioned, but it sticks in the subconscious of a potential customer. This causes a certain familiarity and fondness for it the next time this is mentioned to the same person.
Syria was third from the bottom of the threat list on the decider,s "Axis of Evil 100 year war he bragged about back in Sept. 2001. Perhaps Syria is being given top billing as the new target for another pointless war in case no support for Iran can be found. Or if Iran is deemed to difficult to obtain a quick win. Perhaps the next false-flag attack will be blamed on Syria to justify the next war.
