I was looking over "the year in pics" on msn.com and came across this pic. The reason that it interested me was because the plane hit a residential building and was essentially destroyed. If you notice, in the lower right corner you see a wing... mostly in tact... unlike the pentagon post 9/11 photos.

The conspiracy theorist in me could not let this pass...

HELL, even the 9-11 Commission itself admits that no evidence of a plane (or the alleged people on Flight 77) was ever found:

http://911research.wtc7.net/planes/attack/flight77.html


quote:


Whether the aircraft that crashed into the Pentagon was Flight 77 is the subject of much question and controversy. Human remains of the people onboard Flight 77 were identified at Dover, but there is no public evidence that places the bodies at the Pentagon crash site.

The impact was 83 minutes after Flight 11 first went off course, and 58 minutes after the North Tower impact, and 40 minutes after the South Tower impact, yet the jet was not intercepted as it flew over the (normally) most heavily protected airspace in the United States, and in the world.



I had this dicussion with my mother a while ago, and she got so upset that I kept debunking her "evidence" that she started yelling and cutting me off. She kept saying that if the goverment was lying, they wouldn't leave info open like that to be debunked. I told her that experts and scientists can debunk lies, she delve into "Well, how do you know the experts are telling the truth, since none of us were there?" Eventually just said, "Well, you believe what you want to, I'll believe what I want to."

When I said, "Well then, you can say that about anything. Why do you believe anything since it could all be a lie?" she simply repeated the above line. Roll Eyes


IT'S AMAZING what lengths of irrationality people will go to just to avoid questioning their "reality". She thought, "Oh, I saw a list of names of the people on the flight, some stories of the people and a funeral for them" was irrefutable evidence that it happened. Which is about as much of "strong evidence" as, "Many places named in the Bible are real, and it self-references it's stories, therefore it must all be true."
There are pics of the plane wreckage from the Pentagon along with lots of information surrounding the crash and some grainy video footage. I have personally posted links and pictures of all of that stuff before and I'm sure it's still around here somewhere.

Empty Purnata, your very own link talks about the eyewitnesses to the crash who saw the plane.

What do people get out this conspiracy theory? Is it comforting somehow? Make you sleep better at night? Confused

Indeed.
Which link? Was the 9-11 Commission link invalid?

The damage caused by the "plane" that supposedly hit the Pentagon is not compatible with that of a plane (where is the wing damage?). There was never any evidence that a plane hit, nor were any bodies of the "passengers" ever found.



So let's see a BIG-ASS BOEING 757 hit a building, only caused a small hole barely bigger around than the fuselage, caused no wing damage, didn't even plow very far into the building, didn't disturb the lawn one bit, caused no smashed windows, and left no pieces of itself with no passenger bodies?


Confused
There are many conflicted accounts of what happened. Where are the families of these people who supposedly "died"? Where is the fund for them? Why did the goverment whisk off the debris so fast and not allow any inspection? Why do so many witnesses claim to have seen/heard a missle and a fighter jet? Why didn't Flight 77 leave the radar?

Most of all: WHERE THE FUCK ARE THE BODIES AND WHERE THE FUCK IS THE PLANE? Even the 9-11 Council admitted there is no proof a plane or any passengers were there. Where the fuck is the black box from the plane?

The damage done to the building is inconsistent with that of a huge-ass Boeing 757. So, you're telling me that a 200-foot wide, 150-foot long, 600,000-pound plane with 5,000+ gallons of volatile fuel only caused that little hole, didn't even disturb the lawn, and didn't even smash windows? GIMME A BREAK.

An object that big, flying 300+ mph, smack-dab into a building, even the steel-reinforced Pentagon (but 757 planes have titanium which can cut through concrete and steel), only caused that dent? Are you aware of the sheer FORCE of the explosion that a 757 would cause, flying into a building? Any surrounding video cameras in an 200-yard radius would have been knocked out by the sheer force (that's more force than an Amtrak smashing into a mountain).

Where is the wing damage?





The damage done is much more consistent with that of a missle.
Empty Purnata, did you read the links??? Because all of what you just said is clearly debunked. There are numerous photos of plane wreckage, pictures of the entry, an explanation of how it is exactly consistent with the dimensions of the plane, pictures of the damaged areas leading all the way up to the building, diagrams of how deep the plane penetrated, pictures from the first people on the scene, and explanation of the debris, and MUCH MORE.

Now THAT was a good attempt to prove it was a plane. It almost had me convinced, ALMOST.

Now, I am thinking it may have been some sort of plane, but I'm still unconvinced that it was specifically a 757. That hole is just way too damn small to have been a 757 (unless the Pentagon is made out of titanium that's 8 feet thick). Do you know how force would be behind a 600,000-lb vehicle traveling over 300 mph?

I don't see how anyone can ignore the lack of wing damage, and the fact that cameras weren't knocked completely out by the force (pretty damn strong cameras).

The panel found in the building debris wasn't all that convincing, it looked like it could have been from any type of commercial plane. And the video outline of the alleged 757 was kinda unconvincing (it hardly looked like a 757, it looked like a nearly transparent blur that can be made into anything, like an inkblot).


But I agree it may have been some form of plane. Whether or not it was the plane alleged, well.......that's the damndest Boeing crash I've ever seen if it was.
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 eye - completely counter to a plane hitting it. Think about the way that the planes that hit in NY completely blew out the steel/metal etc. of the WTC along the full width of the plane (including the wings). Curious how brick is only charred but almost untouched looking with this plane.
Confused

Perhaps its much easier to sell the American people on another rogue plane as opposed to someone with a RPG or something in the nation's capital - or even worse, a wayward American missile.
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. The government could release video footage and play the recordings from the Black Box and people would STILL think it was fake. I, for one, am glad they have not gone that grisly route. Again, what are you all getting out of hanging on to these conspiracy theories in the face of a mountain of evidence to the contrary?

I am greatly disturbed by this and I think its promotion is a slap in the face to all of the people who lost family members on that flight. (Flight 77 Passengers and Crew) It must feel for them how it feels for those who lost family members in the Holocaust who have to hear some yahoo talk about how the Holocaust never happened. td6

Similarly, in the face of considerable evidence to the contrary, why people passively consume what they are fed by the government (a group that is known to do anything for political gain) is beyond me.

At some point, if one is a critical thinker, thay have to ask the serious question: who benefitted by 9/11? Our president had zero political leverage and extremely weak popular support prior to 9/11. The public realized that, for better or worse, the Supreme Court put Bush in office NOT the American people. Beyond that, the Bush & Co. were quite public and clear about their plans for the Middle East. Juxtapose the two, along with Bush's intimacy with the Saudi royals, and 9/11 is an all too convenient tool to set the geo-political stage to accomplish his pre-established objectives and manufacture politcal support at home.

I guess the bigger question is do you believe that Bush - or the government - could/would manipulate/contrive events to achieve their objectives? In light of the cavalier way that Bush contravenes the Constitution and the law - why not?
I agree. Which is why my information is not force fed to me by the government and why I do not pass along that kind of information to others. Roll Eyes

Edited to respond to your additions: Bush & Co are certainly capable of a lot of things. But that does not negate the truth of the matter and the cold, hard evidence in front of you from a multitude of sources. Just because they can, doesn't mean they did.

The biggest and most important question is whether one is more concerned with finding the truth or hanging on to fantasy.

WHAT EVIDENCE? You see a picture with some "stuff" on the ground and are told that it is airplane parts - and that is evidence? You assume alot. You assume that the debris came from the plane. You assume that the debris was actually ever even there (folks can do wonders with digital photography these days you know). The fact of the matter is that the planes that hit the twin towers acted radically different than whatever hit the Pentagon. The fact of the matter is that (despite this occuring in probably one of the most photographed and monitored cities on Earth) there is no clear photographic evidence to confirm the plane hitting the Pentagon. The fact of the matter is that the "footprint" of whatever hit the Pentagon seems to not be consistent with what we saw hit the WTC.

Furthermore, the fact of the matter is that Cheney authorized anything that came into the capitol perimeter to be shot down. Either 1) why did this get through? or 2) why couldn't this be a mistaken missile? You know the govt./military has been known to make a mistake every now and then! bsm

Now you can choose to believe whatever you wish. Until I see evidence to the contrary, I will have questions - PARTICULARLY in light of the fact that there were strong incentives for all of that to occur - by a group who has proven not to be above lying, manufacturing evidence, and sacrificing American life for their objectives.

Perhaps some have a more robust sense of truth than others. The photograph posted above that shows that the brick above and to the side of where the plane fuselage supposedly struck the Pentagon seems to inject a degree of uncertaintly about the established story. The "evidence" that your conspiracy site purports to explain this is absolutely nonsensical in spots. (Beyond that, there are many more sites out there which confirm questions about what happened at the Pentagon.) Why one would swallow that random source 'hook, line and sinker' is beyond me.

I think it is a far greater "slap in the face" to the families of those who perished for there to be legitimate questions about what happened to their loved ones.

Wow - you really reached for that one! Eek nono

Please do actually read the information provided. It's not just some "stuff" on the ground. It is very clearly plane parts (seats, wheels, parts of the bulkhead, etc) in some cases with the AA paint pattern still visible.

Lord Have Mercy. You're one of those who will never believe no matter who have right in front of your won eyes. Yes, everything right down to the EYEWITNESS accounts and pictures from numerous news agencies could be completely manufactured. So could everything you see all around you everyday. Maybe I'm no even really a human being responding to you. I might be some kind of government Special Ops automated program. Okay, MBM. At some point, you have to face facts.

That is not so. From the site:

In layman's terms the crash dynamics worked like so: A large hollow tube, with a belly full of luggage, a passenger bay with 60 people, and wings full of fuel smashed into the side of an almost solid object while moving at a tremendous speed (somewhere around 350-400mph). When the 225,000lb+ plane hit, it smashed apart with such force from the crash that it became like one massive column of liquid (no, the plane didn't melt or turn into liquid, it just acted like one physically - mountainslides act the same way, a million tons of rock acts like a large field of liquid during a landslide even if no water is present). All the small parts, luggage, people, seats, and all the tens of thousands of pounds of fuel acting like a massive river came crashing into the wall of the Pentagon. This force burst through the outside wall and flowed through the inside to the next wall, and momentum carried this mass until it finally ran out of inertia at the 3rd ring.

The same type of "liquification" occured in the WTC plane crashes and is apparent is the video footage. Which is also linked to on the page I provided so you can see with your own eyes.

quote:

Yes, there is.

quote:

This is not Looney Toons. Planes do not enter buildings leaving a perfect outline of the wings and then come to a stop just inside so that sufficient photographs can be taken before they explode. The "footprints" match. The problem is people seem to have a skewed perception of what the damage to the top of the towers looked like before they collapsed.

quote:
Fuerthermore, the fact of the matter is that Cheney authorized anything that came into the capitol perimeter to be shot down. Either 1) why did this get through? or 2) why couldn't this be a mistaken missile?


Ahhhh, I see. And 64 passengers and crew members just happened to be riding on this wayward missile that was suddenly launched from god knows where?!?! And an American Airlines plane was quickly rushed out to the scene so that EYEWITNESSES would see it and think that was what they saw?? And then American Airlines jet parts were scattered throughout the tangled wreckage so that all the pictures taken of the crash site would corroborate the plane theory?

You have to suspend a whole lof of reasonability to hang on to this conspiracy theory that there was no plane.

Yes. You're right. The missile carrying 64 people is much more plausible. What was I thinking?

What ahppened to their loved ones is crystal clear. It's only people like you and AG and Empty Purnata who keep digging up from their graves to say they never existed.

THAT IS NOT A REACH! You all are the ones saying the plane didn't even exist! When it not only existed, but everybody on the damn thing died. Don't try to spin that crap around on me as some kind of blasphemous stretch.
