'Captain Phillips' belongs in the company of Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, United 93, and other joint Hollywood-CIA productions that take liberties with the truth, to put it mildly.
The crew members of the ship that was taken hostage in Somalian waters, captained by what appears to be a moron from hell, say that the movie is a big lie.
Here is an excerpt from the article, "Crew members: ‘Captain Phillips’ is one big lie" by Maureen Callahan, The New York Post, October 13:
It didn’t go down like that, say several crew members: The pirates just reneged on the deal, grabbing their guy and making off with Phillips in a Maersk lifeboat.Here is what probably happened.
While the remaining crew waited for the Navy to reach them, they sat and wondered: What just happened?
Four days later, Phillips was rescued by SEAL Team Six. He was hailed as an American hero. He met with President Obama in the Oval Office and wrote a memoir.
For some of the crew, it was too much. In their version, Phillips was the victim of a botched exchange. In 2009, he told ABC News he was taken after promising to show the pirates how to operate their escape boat. His book was packaged as the story of a man who gave himself up for his crew, which Phillips later said was a false narrative spread by the media. Today he tells The Post, “I was already a hostage,” but remains vague on the exchange.
Perry and third engineer John Cronan went to CNN, speaking of Phillips’ recklessness, claiming he endangered all their lives.
Perry said he and other crew believed Phillips had a perverse desire to be taken hostage. “That’s what many of us officers were saying to ourselves,” he said.
The crew member, who is not part of the suit, agrees Phillips had a death wish: “Yeah,” he says. “Because he went through that area, and the company is sending him e-mails, and I know he saw that chart [of prior attacks] 50 times.”
“It is galling for them to see Captain Phillips set up as a hero,” Waters said. “It is just horrendous, and they’re angry.”
In the run-up to Friday’s release of “Captain Phillips,” Hanks has appeared on the cover of Parade magazine with Phillips and the headline “The Making of an American Hero.” The film won the opening-night slot at the New York Film Festival on Sept. 28 and opened the London Film Festival last Wednesday. It has won raves, all of which note the film is based on real events. The two men have walked the red carpet together.
Not all of the crew cooperated with the movie, and those who did were paid as little as $5,000 for their life rights by Sony and made to sign nondisclosure agreements — meaning they can never speak publicly about what really happened on that ship.
It’s the film’s version of events — and Hanks’ version of Phillips — that will be immortalized.
“They told us they would change some stuff,” says the crew member, laughing. By the end of Friday, opening day, he had seen the film. “It’s a good movie,” he says dryly. “Real entertaining.”
The shadow CIA, realizing that Captain Phillips has an ego the size of Mount Everest, went to him and asked him if he wants to be part of a major psyop for national security purposes, involving a bestselling book, talk show appearances, and a big Hollywood film starring a big name, Oscar-winning actor. "How would you like to be a hero" asked the shadow CIA. Being the man that he is, Captain Phillips said yes, and asked in return, "So, what's the plan?"
And here's the plan. The shadow CIA employed Somalian pirates, incompetent dolts hungry for dough, to seize Captain Phillips' ship. And, of course, Captain Phillips happily accommodated them. He ignored all safety protocols on that day and took his crew against their will to the area that was agreed upon between the shadow CIA, the Somalian pirates, and Captain Phillips where the hostage would take place.
The crew members say in the article above that it seemed as if Captain Phillips almost wanted to get taken hostage by the pirates. They hit the mark here. That is exactly what he wanted.
This is a conspiracy involving the Somalian pirates, Captain Phillips, and the shadow CIA who are masters at creating psy-ops for the American public and the world at large, as we know from their work on 9/11 and with the official publicized death of bin Laden.
Two things that make this story even more interesting - 1) the involvement of Seal Team Six in the rescue of Captain Phillips, the same guys who brought you the big lie of bin Laden's official death, and 2) the role of director Paul Greengrass, the propagandist extraordinaire and master filmmaker behind United 93.
You've got to give these guys credit for the sheer scale of their inventions. The shadow CIA and their partners in the Hollywood propaganda industry sure know how to create false heroes and sell lies.
