To the conspiritorially minded, nothing is impossible. The problem is, though, *pics, or it didn't happen*. If someone believes in the 911 truther stuff, how beyond the pale would this seem. I think enough people have become increasingly disillusioned with lying pols that they want some kind of proof beyond assurances and press releases. As has been pointed out, though, they might not accept such pics as definitive proof anyway. That Eagle won't land least in their eyes.
