Military Abduction at the G-20 Friday, 25 Sep 2009 by Eileen Clancy

I-Witness Video is not present at the G-20 meetings taking place in Pittsburgh this week, but we can see from voluminous web postings and video that some very strange things seem to be going on—including what appears to be a kidnapping in broad daylight.

A bystander caught the abduction on video. The video shows several large, muscular men in camouflage uniforms grabbing a man, stuffing him into an unmarked car, and burning rubber to haul him away. As the car drives off, the camera pulls out and we can see a helmeted man who appears to be a police officer aiming a rifle or shotgun at people at the scene. (Note the fellow in the foreground holding the classic hands-up pose.)

While this video has already generated a lot of speculation online over whether either the event or the video were faked, reliable sources tell us that this event really took place. Unknown men (U.S. Army? police officers?) wearing camouflage uniforms kidnapped a G-20 protester around 5:30 P.M. on Thursday, September 24. The man who was grabbed was taken to the Allegheny County Jail where those arrested at the G-20 protests are being held. As of 4:30 P.M. on Friday, September 25, the abducted man had been arraigned but not yet released.
