I was surprised by that comment as well, but it could be that
those sections of the "video" never made it to the final cut.

When this matter first broke last year I seem to recall that it
was alleged that Santilli requested an autopsy sequence from the
same production company and when they were unable to meet the
deadline, he reportedly took that request to another production
group (in Gemany, if memory serves). This doesn't seem to match
the comments being made in the article, which seems to support
Ray Santilli's claim that he was duped by them when they were
unable to obtain images from the "film" they had been given.

On the other hand, I've heard that color images from the
original video may be available, and that would certainly help
to confirm it's being a hoax. Otherwise, we're still dealing
with annecdotal evidence.
