The movie Judgement Exposes the Phony ‘Death Camp’ Pictures that Fooled the World

Emperors Clothes, 16 July 2003

In August 1992, millions of people were shocked by photographs of a supposed Bosnian Serb death camp.

The photos were produced by ITN, the British TV news giant, from footage shot by their film crew, which had spent a long day in Bosnia.

Most of the photographs featured a tall, thin man with a deformed chest, stripped to the waist, apparently imprisoned behind barbed wire. You might have seen those pictures.

They were staged and doctored: a hoax. This is proved in the Emperor's Clothes movie, ‘JUDGMENT!’

To start with, the barbed wire was staged. The ITN film crew went inside a storage area surrounded by a chicken wire/barbed wire fence. They filmed from *inside* that enclosure—through the barbed wire—and in that way created the false impression that they were filming people imprisoned behind barbed wire. And that was only their first cute trick. Step by step, ‘JUDGMENT!’ will show you exactly how the phony pictures were created.

The phony pictures were broadcast worldwide starting on August 6th. Twenty minutes after they were shown on US Television…

Mr. Bush responds with lightning speed

On 6 August 1992 just *20 minutes* after the pictures were broadcast, George Bush, Sr. held a press conference at a Colorado Air Base:

“Reports say that 20 minutes after the ITN footage was shown in the United States, President George Bush changed his hands-off policy and promised to ‘press hard for quick passage’ of a UN Security Council resolution authorising the use of force in the Balkans.” — “The Straits Times, August 16, 1992; “Holocaust images of Bosnia prison camps make the West sit up,” by Lee Siew Hua]

President Bush demanded that the Bosnian Serbs and the Republic of Serbia be harshly punished, including:

“…tighten[ing] economic sanctions on Serbia so that all understand that there is a real price to be paid for the Serbian government's continued aggression.”

Bush also announced that the U.S. would recognize Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia as independent from Yugoslavia. Thus he used the phony death camp photos as an excuse to endorse the break-up of Yugoslavia. By recognizing the Bosnian government, run by the Islamic fundamentalist, Alijah Izetbegovic, Bush guaranteed that the Bosnian war would continue.

Consider the remarkable speed with which President Bush reacted.

Some photos were shown on TV.

Immediately, President Bush contacted his cabinet members, who, coincidentally, had seen the photos.

They conferred. Somehow they determined that the pictures are genuine.

They contacted leaders of Germany, England and possibly other countries. They planned draconian measures including economic sanctions that would cut Serbia off from the world.

They contacted congressional leaders who agreed that Bush should announce the US intent to recognize three Yugoslav secessionist states—Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia.

They called a press conference at a Colorado Air Base. They wrote a press release. They wrote Mr. Bush's speech. He learned the speech.

Newspapers, wire services and TV stations received the press release. Film crews traveled to the Air base and set up their equipment.

And all this was done in 20 minutes.

Isn’t it more likely that the timing of the broadcast of these pictures on TV was coordinated between ITN and the State Department or the CIA? That Bush was put on TV right after the pictures so that ordinary people would believe that the pictures had compelled President Bush to act?

Perhaps ITN's trip to Bosnia, supposedly to “investigate claims that concentration camps had been set up” (Strait Times), was planned as a hunt for the right pictures to produce doctored evidence.
