French site L'Asile points out that 11/9 Pentagon crash site is missing one crucial piece of forensic data: an airplane.


To compare the Pentagon crash site with other crashes, visit the gallery at Air Safety Online. For a quick update on what a large building looks like after being hit by an airliner jump to this page inside the Air Safety Online site, or simply recall what happened to the World Trade Centre. Compare those images with the images of the Pentagon.

L'Asile generated a lot of negative publicity with its insight by tying itself to a book that argued an unnecessarily convoluted theory about the events of that day. There is a simpler, more convincing story to be told about this crash.

It is clear that a plane did not hit the Pentagon. Pieces of the plane would have been evident — engines, tail sections, parts of the fuselage typically survive crashes. Even after the WTC crashes parts of the planes were recovered. The photos here demonstrate well enough that something else did this damage to the Pentagon.

And what happened to the airliner? But why lie about it?

The fate of this plane is tied to the fate of the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania. They were both shot down by the US military rather than be allowed to reach their presumed government targets in the Washington area.

Both the Pennsylvania and Pentagon flights were nearly an hour behand the WTC flights. The US government were well aware they had been hijacked and had plenty of time to scramble jets to intercept.

The wreckage of the Pennsylvania plane was spread over something like eight miles, and emergency workers reported there was no crater and there were no substantial pieces of the aircraft — it had exploded in mid air. That the terrorists blew the plane up before it reached its target and while they were in control of it is illogical.

It is a safe and reasonable assumption that the flight that is supposed to have hit the Pentagon met the same fate.

What we don't know is where the Pentagon flight actually came down. Browsing the net sites about Flight 77 it becomes evident that there is uncertainty about where it went and when. It is the only flight that CNN didn't publish a flight path for. Apparently it took off from Washington and the hijackers waited 300 miles until it reached Ohio before hijacking the plane and forcing it fly right back to Washington. The movements of the plane become vague at the point of the hijacking over Ohio. Certainly, the reports from Washington area air traffic controllers do not mention an airliner in the area at the time of the crash.

We don't know what happened at the Pentagon and the stories around the explosion are spooky. Whatever happened, it was a huge embarrassment to the government. Neither did they want to admit to shooting down either plane, so blaming the Pentagon devastation on a hijacked plane was a simple way out.

Cheney later that day said that they were sitting on a story for the sake of national unity. It doesn't take a big imagination to guess that the story was the downing of these two planes.

It is doubtful that the American people would have blamed the government for shooting down these planes given that the alternative would have been a greater loss of life had they reached their targets.

It is disturbing that the government lies to its people, and apparently has no faith in their ability to accept hard truths. Its should be worrying for Americans that security and intelligence failures that affect their lives such as the Pentagon attack are being swept under the carpet and out of sight or discussion.
