A while back I remember finding some footage of the WTC 7 collapse that conradicted the original CBS footage, later used on the Naudet propaganda film. Unfortunately, I only had a screen grab from this footage until today, when I came across the original footage again.
I have also found some other footage from the FOIA stuff that was released recently. This has been helpful in destroying the veracity of the older footage, but throws up it's own isssues, which I will deal with later.
Below I have posted two images from the old footage side by side. The shot on the left is prior to collapse and the shot to the right just after the penthouse disappears. Notwithstanding the indistinct detail of the buildings, the perps obviously realised they had forgotton shadows shown elsewhere and pasted them in post-collapse!!
I would also say it is impossible to get that lamp post in shot from that angle (see streetview image below)

The shadow to the right, which I didn't recall from a few years back is the reason I have re-visited this. On the following sequence, from the FOIA set, a 2nd shadow can be seen clearly.
At first glance, this footage appears authentic (I know, I know) and is interesting for a number of things. The lady being interviewed doesn't appear to be an actress and reacts as anyone would when WTC7 disappears behind her. However, the interviewer knows immediately what has happened and what building has collpased, suggesting foreknowledge. Second, it is obvious how busy this area is, in stark contrast to the previous footage. They also have distinctly different audio with fake sirens on the first clip. This brings me to another point. There is no sound of an explosion when WTC7 collapses. In fact, look carefully and it takes 6 seconds from the time the penthouse disappears for the building to start collapsing. I believe this contradicts other footage from other viewpoints.
Despite my initial thoughts of the footage being authentic, two more things concern me. The source of the shadow being cast on the building to the left? If this was from a taller building from across West St, surely there should be a shadow across the road too? Finally, in the last frame you can see an all-seeing eye in the smoke. This remians for some time. In fact, the smoke barely moves at all and where are the pyrochlastic clouds we see elsewhere?

Here is the building in question on Streetview in which I have overlayed the shadow for easy reference. I have also added an inset of the original CBS footage, which illustrates that it is completely fake. The building has been compressed in width (look at the windows &
and is the wrong colour.
