"U.S. pinned spot" in the original version is apparently wrong. I marked where the yellow blob is in their corner-inset of the flight track graphic. But that would be the push-pin body. It's point will be about on the crater they otherwise focus on. To be revised. --Caustic Logic (talk) 11:24, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Or... if the pin is the usual type, I think it points about 5:00 , which means they point too far south, but likely meant the crater. I'll ignore the yellow mark from here on and just indicate that crater. --Caustic Logic (talk) 11:28, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

No Crater Blast?

This is a possibly major point. What I show here is based on Bellingcat's line-of-sight study (linked above, Higgins). That shows a red line to the crater the White House cites as the main impact point for this 7 am gas attack. But there's no plume of any kind on or near that line, so no strike. The work seems good, but it might be worth re-explaining. Any thoughts on why this isn't a good lead? --Caustic Logic (talk) 11:24, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Okay, one reason: it's not proven if there is or isn't. Neither of these videos ever pans far enough to the left to look down that line of sight. (I checked, it's complex). The view used here has its left edge stop maybe half way to seeing what's above the crater area. One should think they would pan over to it if it had been stricken, with the most important and also the closest expected blast plume, or sarin cloud, a little further to the left. But after showing the big ones and the white cloud, he pans to the other plume worth showing, further off and to the right. This suggests there was nothing interesting above that crater, but it fails to prove it. Maybe he just figured someone else was filming that one, or whatever... --Caustic Logic (talk) 13:11, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

New York Times cameraman

Camera angles according to Michael Kobs

Michael Kobs places the New York Times cameraman on the western edge of town.

P.S. - Adam, If you make a new version of this, please make the image larger. -- Petri Krohn (talk) 08:32, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
