We're told that Pavel Hlava is an immigrant who videotaped both
planes striking the North and South towers. He did this while from
a vehicle that managed to move to two locations that provided unobstructed
views of the WTC.
His video surfaces in September, 2003. Note: The image is

The Pavel Hlava Story
Miraculously, this picture from the New York Times seems composed. Not
only is it prearranged but it actually tells the Pavel Hlava story. Pavel (left) and
his employer (right) seem to be acting a scene in a movie.
The lighting is balanced and soft as if a portrait shot by a professional. While the
letters are added by the New York Times in order to protect their ownership
of it, the rest of the photograph seems similarly put together with
every last detail plotted.
Meet Pavel Hlava and his employer. Pavel, with arms folded, is immediately
ethnic and likable. However, we like his employer less. That's because he
seems upset. They're having some conversation. What are they discussing? The employer seems
critical of something. However, Hlava's expression shows us that
he has made a decision and is determined to follow through with it. What
was this decision?
Then we slip out of the movie for a second and
who Pavel is. He is
the immigrant construction worker with an energetic toddler, a loyal brother
and a photographer. His favorite photographer, Walter Karling,
is also now his agent. (We don't see Walter in this photograph but he is
handling Pavel's business affairs. According to
Fox News, 9/6/2003,
Walter's phone number cannot be obtained and he won't speak to the Associated Press.)
Back to the New York Times's movie...Pavel is apparently
telling his employer that he wants to make his video public. The employer
doesn't think it is a good idea because Pavel may end up profiting from
"blood money". Still, Pavel believes there is merit in going forward. The
US flag prominantly placed next to his head suggests Hlava's intentions
are noble and patriotic.
By telling us this story with their still photograph of Pavel Hlava the
New York Times has given their audience
maximum comfort with the video's authenticity.
Pavel is now
New York television station for airing his video without authorization (on
a 9/13/03 telecast). Pavel is so determined not to profit from blood money
that his video's appearance on network TV was a one-time deal. ABC Good
Morning America's show aired it on 9/11/03 and Pavel won't let
anyone else see it.
Pavel Hlava Oddities
Pavel Hlava's video is an extremely similiar perspective as what
CNN showed all day 9/11/01. Of all the
different views Pavel could have of the disaster why doesn't his have
more marked differences from the CNN shot?
His video was "discovered" and aired in September, 2003. The timing is perfect
for new thinking about what happened on September 11, 2001.
The name is perfectly Czech. A well-known
blower named Pavel Hlava died on February 26, 2003.
