1. Yes! You'd think we would be seeing such photos EVERYWHERE to proove their claims.
The smallest anti-War rally I went to after March 20, 2003 was probably about 10K; the biggest, in fall of 2002, was probably something like 2-300K. There definitely were helicopters in attendance at that one, but NOT A PEEP in the "news".
6. After the Sept. 2005 peace march in D.C., I looked on the Internet for areal photos.

I attended the Sept. 2005, peace march, and I wanted to see areal photos to back up my belief that there were more than 150,000 who marched. I could not find any such photos, and I assumed that the absence of same was due to two reasons: (i) national security protocols prevent the taking and dissemination of D.C. areal photos, and (ii) the administration desired to conceal any such photos which would prove great number of peace marchers.
Also, I am surprised to read here that there was a civilian helicopter flying over D.C. during the Tea party. I thought that all civilian flights over D.C. were banned after Sept 11, 2001.
5. Here is the photo/poster Fox will be promoting according to Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks
Amazing photo from 912-View here!
As I just mentioned on Fox, FreedomWorks is going to be selling a poster-size version of this photo from the 9/12 March. We are working with various print and mail vendors to secure the best possible price for you, so check back soon for ordering information. If you want to be reminded when the poster is ready for sale, sign up as a FreedomWorks member and you will receive an email when the poster goes on sale.
12. Best estimate was about 60,000 -- not very impressive
considering Fox promoted the hell out of it. We've gotten hundreds of thousands of people to liberal marches and protests with a fraction of the pre-protest publicity. Of course, the media did their best to ignore the hell out of them, or to focus in on maybe one or two extreme protesters (some "out there" anarchist or something).
