Smoke Machines

Weren't there Hollywood-type smoke machines there or can that be debunked? ~ JasonCarswell (talk) 05:11, 19 August 2016 (IST)

I know very little about this. I recommend searching and see what you can find. In a pinch, if I want to put information down quickly and can't find evidence for something I'm almost sure is true, then I just write it without a reference and then a little[citation needed] note to help people investigate this. Generally though, that is bad practice. For anything controversial, use references - as far as they're available. It's amazing what a determined search can turn up. Or not turn up! Yesterday I looked for a decent source for the Red House meeting, but seems there is none. Accordingly, I turned up the scepticism a lot on that atricle. --Robin (talk) 11:29, 19 August 2016 (IST)

Staged Event

The other angle on this is, that these were all actors. If a real bomb had exploded, there would have been more people around the explosion spot with notable injuries, injuries that would have caused them pain, bleeding etc, behavior of some bystanders, damage to clothing and other things do not add up and the most 'famous' of the victims with his legs blown away would have most certainly died given time, treatment and transport to the tent that he received -> (1) (2) -> this is pretty thorough: Sunvalley (talk) 18:41, 14 October 2017 (IST)
