Uncle Jefe Makes Powerline

Nice. Why don't you have your own blog, smart-guy?

Powerline quotes Uncle Jefe's observations that the first footage of the hit press van showed a dark armored vehicle, and not the white vehicle now being represented as the truck.

One photo shows a cracked windshield; a later photo shows a windshield that looks intact.

So... I don't know. I still think the right attitude is skepticism. Then again, I didn't see the footage Uncle Jefe saw.

Either way, it's pretty cool that Uncle Jefe got his own personal Powerlanche.

PS: I've alerted Allah to the dark/light vehicle color discrepancy. I know those guys record a lot of news; I don't know how long they keep the recordings.

If they have the footage, I'm sure they'll have it up.

He Already Did: Allah already posted FoxNews' coverage of this.

I don't know if this is the footage Uncle Jefe means, but here the vehicle is white and looks like the same van we've seen in later photos.

Allah... says he has a photo he's about to put up showing the windshield cracked in later photos. The windshield may just appear uncracked due to the glancing sunlight.

HotAir will have it in a moment.

Okay... This photo shows a cracked windshield.


To me, that windshield looks straight up-and-down, suggesting the rear of the vehicle, whereas the front windshield in the Powerline pics is plainly angled at about 30 degrees.

Allah thinks it's angled, it just doesn't look that way. The writing over the windshield matches perfectly to the writing shown in the Powerline pics, and the damage seen in the interior of the car, in the roof above the passenger seat, seems to match as well.

It could just be a bad angle, I suppose.

Update: Allah points out the position of the roof-rack from the windshield-- which seems to show the windshield in his photo is in the front of the van. So it looks like he was right.

Either way, unless there's some other FoxNews coverage out there, it does look like the van was white from the first time it was photographed.

Update: I put in a request to the woman who booked me for an interview to get a copy of Fox's earliest footage of the struck press van.
