Re: Plane Hits Building...

I would guess that there are certainly as many cameras in our nation's capital as in NYC. Where is the footage of the plane hitting the Pentagon as we have with the WTC? The footage that has been released raises way more questions than answers. In fact, in my eyes, it suggests that there was NO plane. Bottom line evidence for me is that without regard to what was found on the ground (which we have no clue about how it got there), the physical eviodence on the building itself is - to the lay...

Re: Plane Hits Building...

All of that is cleared up and addressed in the link provided. The dimensions of the entry damage are exactly consisent with the dimentions of the plane. There is not only pictures of plane debris on the ground but also inside the building. There was MASSIVE destruction inside and outside of the building and (again) plenty of supportive photographs and EYEWITNESS accounts. At a certain point, there is just no convincing people who want to hang on to this conspiracy theory for whatever reason.
