The Day Vladimir Putin Fooled Oliver Stone with a Doctored Video

Oliver Stone, producer of the so-called documentary, JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, can be easily fooled. Here is a scene from his documentary The Putin Interviews:

Here is a side-by-side comparison of an American video and the video that Putin showed to Oliver Stone:

Here is an article on the videos:

The 2013 video on YouTube (which is correctly labeled as Americans fighting against Taliban) has been viewed over a million times, so it’s no surprise that it has been recut and re-uploaded for other purposes. The footage that Putin shows Stone appears to have been re-dubbed in Russian and uploaded to YouTube in March of 2016—or at least one version with very few views.
It purportedly shows Russian Mi-28 helicopters, according to the YouTube description. But, again, it’s actually from 2009 and shows Apache helicopters. The footage was uploaded to in 2012.
For all we know, Putin actually believes the footage is from Russia’s fight against ISIS. But it’s not. We’ve reached out to Oliver Stone’s representatives for comment this morning and will update this post if we hear back.

Oliver Stone did respond on RT - the Russian-controlled network:

There is a humanitarian disaster underway in Ukraine. You would think that Oliver Stone would say something about it. But, he has been silent.

The people of Ukraine need our help. Please visit the link below on how you can help responsibly:

Here is how everybody can help the people of Ukraine.

And a reminder:

JFK Supported Ukrainian Independence
