9.11 investigation

9/11 Skeptic Looking for Confiscated Pentagon Video

What Really Happened on September 11 at the Pentagon? Did American Airlines Flight 77, a Boeing 757, crash into the Pentagon?

After examining publicly available evidence, I have come to the conclusion that it is very unlikely that a Boeing 757 crashed into the Pentagon on September 11. Photos and videos held by the U.S. government could very well refute my conclusion - I would welcome that because the alternative is far more disturbing.

The Pentagon crash may be the only commercial airline crash in modern history for which the photographic record is not available to the public. Five video frames from Pentagon cameras raise more questions than they answer - no Boeing 757 is visible.


I'm an engineering management consultant, and live less than a mile from the Pentagon. The first question that I asked other onlookers as we viewed the crash site was: "Where's the plane?"

In the photos publicly available, the hole in the Pentagon wall - prior to the collapse of the roof - appears much too small to have been caused by a Boeing 757, and virtually no airplane debris is visible on the Pentagon lawn. Indeed early reports claimed that a truck bomb had exploded, and that the damage was similar to that inflicted on the USS Cole in Yemen.

Also, how does one reconcile the relatively minor damage to the Pentagon by a Boeing 757 (the Pentagon's five rings are built with reinforced conrete walls 18 inches thick), with the total destruction of the World Trade Center by two Boeing 767s (each tower was built with 236 exterior columns, and 47 core columns - all made of steel and connected to each other by steel trusses)? By suspending the laws of science in either one or both locations?

Eyewitness accounts offer conflicting testimony, and in any case are a poor substitute for scientific investigation - physical evidence must take precedence over eyewitness accounts. One eyewitness account, however, takes precedence over those of passersby.

Arlington County Fire Chief Ed Plaugher - at a Dept. of Defense News Briefing with Assistant Secretary Victoria Clarke on September 12, 2001 - when asked: "Is there anything left of the aircraft at all?" said: "there are some small pieces of aircraft ... there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing."

Didn't Chief Plaugher see the plane's engines? The engines would have survived the impact and heat. An engine from a plane that struck the World Trade Center was shown on network television, and so was an engine from American Airlines Flight 587 which crashed shortly after takeoff from New York on November 12, 2001. Photos from the Pentagon crash site show what looks like an engine rotor about 30 inches in diameter - a Boeing 757's engines are about nine feet in diameter.

Another question put to Chief Plaugher at the briefing was: "Chief, there are small pieces of the plane virtually all over, out over the highway, tiny pieces. Would you say the plane exploded, virtually exploded on impact due to the fuel..." Plaugher responded: "I'd rather not comment on that."

How did "small pieces of the plane" end up "out over the highway" when the plane is reported to have disintegrated inside the Pentagon after it crossed the highway? If it disintegrated outside the Pentagon why is there nothing that looks like a Boeing 757 on the Pentagon lawn?

It is curious that at this News Briefing, held approximately 24 hours after American Airlines Flight 77 departing from Dulles airport is said to have crashed into the Pentagon, the words "Boeing," "Dulles," "flight," and "passengers" were not even mentioned. The word "plane" was mentioned once, but Chief Plaugher would "not comment on that."

It is even more curious that national news media failed to follow up on Chief Plaugher's comment that "there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing" when dozens of onlookers, relatives, and firefighters were interviewed on network television about the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center.

Photos and videos of the Pentagon reveal yet more curious sights: one shows 8 or 10 men in office clothes carrying a large box covered with a blue tarpaulin while firefighters look on; another shows 40 or 50 men in office clothes walking shoulder to shoulder in line apparently looking for small items; yet another shows office furniture and a computer monitor which survived the fire that is alleged to have vaporized the Boeing 757 (highly improbable, if not impossible).

As for the 19 alleged hijackers, their names do not appear on Associated Press' "partial list of victims" on the hijacked flights - the final list has not been made public. On September 20, 2001 FBI Director Robert S. Mueller acknowledged, "the identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt." On September 23, 2001 the BBC revealed that four of the hijack "suspects" were alive.

The conspiracy theory set forth in "The 9/11 Commission Report" offers no explanation for the hijacker's identities, and it contradicts publicly available evidence regarding the Pentagon crash site.

The issue of whether or not a Boeing 757 crashed into the Pentagon could be settled by examining the photos and videos taken between 9:35 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. on September 11, 2001 by cameras located inside and outside the Pentagon, the cameras at the nearby gas station and the Sheraton, and the Dept. of Transportation cameras. These have not been made public.

Since September 11, 2001, about 5,000 foreign nationals have been detained by the United States and denied basic constitutional rights in the name of "wartime" expediency even though Director Mueller said in speech at the Commonwealth Club on April 19, 2002: "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper - either here in the United States, or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere - that mentioned any aspect of the September 11 plot."

On March 4, 2004, a German court "overturned the world's only conviction" in connection with the September 11 attack on America "because the U.S. withheld crucial evidence."

I do not possess necessary and sufficient facts to offer an alternative theory to that of the 9/11 Commission. I have, however, collected sufficient evidence for my conclusion - subject to release of the abovementioned photos and videos - that it is very unlikely that a Boeing 757 crashed into the Pentagon.

For a detailed analysis of deficiences in "The 9/11 Commission Report," I recommend highly David Ray Griffin's "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions."

Where to look brother 08.Mar.2005 14:13

humanista!!!!!!!!! ya basta!

Here's where you look
Read these books and you wont need no video, you wont need to know the temp of melting steel, or knowledge of military remote control planes.
You, friend will just fucking know we did it to create the war to get what we need to fill our greed. Ruppert is right, he only cared about 911 cause he thought he could prove it to the masses, like on T.V. and shit.
He sez worry about the elephants that are charging us right now!

SHOES TO YOU, Zbigniew !
Mar 10, 2005
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Political Action|Performing Arts|9/11 = Reichstag Fire
SHOES TO YOU, Zbigniew !
Zbigniew Brzezinski is speaking this Thursday evening at 7:00 pm at the Schnitzer. Those entering the Theatre to hear Brzezinski speak will be people with a developed knowledge of American foreign policy.
. . . We must not miss this opportunity to get the message across that 9/11 was an inside job; and to do it in plain sight of a segment of the public that ought to know that but is probably in denial.
. . . Zbigniew Brzezinski has been described as architect of America?s current rush to world domination by naked military force.
. . . Stand with us in the 9/11 Truth Alliance as we hoist signs from the sidewalk and hand out Deception Dollars to audience members as they enter the Schnitzer between 6:15 and 7:00 pm. Meet across the street on Broadway at the newspaper boxes at 6pm. We know for sure that KBOO news staff will be on site to report on this event.
. . . Thanks to some props we are using, this sidewalk demonstration would also probably qualify as Performance Art--so BRING A SHOE to pound on pavement amidst music from Three Penny Opera, candles and ambient incense. (Co-sponsors do NOT advocate the throwing of shoes at anybody. Period. But publicity from shoe throwing at the recent Richard Pearl / John Dean debate will evoke sure-fire imagery for the gathering audience at the theatre.).

Graphic Support for this exercise in public awareness

Andrew Geller's broadcast, "People Rise Up - KBOO - 03/02/05 - Kyle Hence, 911 CitizensWatch.org" is archived at

Mike Ruppert?s review of Brzezinski?s book
"THE GRAND CHESSBOARD - American Primacy And It's Geostrategic Imperatives," Zbigniew Brzezinski, Basic Books, 1997.

These are the very first words in the book: "Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power."- p. xiii. Eurasia is all of the territory east of Germany and Poland, stretching all the way through Russia and China to the Pacific Ocean. It includes the Middle East and most of the Indian subcontinent. The key to controlling Eurasia, says Brzezinski, is controlling the Central Asian Republics. And the key to controlling the Central Asian republics is Uzbekistan. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Uzbekistan was forcefully mentioned by President George W. Bush in his address to a joint session of Congress, just days after the attacks of September 11, as the very first place that the U.S. military would be deployed.
As FTW has documented in previous stories, major deployments of U.S. and British forces had taken place before the attacks. And the U.S. Army and the CIA had been active in Uzbekistan for several years. There is now evidence that what the world is witnessing is a cold and calculated war plan - at least four years in the making - and that, from reading Brzezinski's own words about Pearl Harbor, the World Trade Center attacks were just the trigger needed to set the final conquest in motion.
