Sat Mar 09, 2002 8:50 am

I am not sure if this has been posted before but I find this site quite appaling.

For someone who finds this site appaling, you sure did a good job of publicizing it to everyone.

If this man doesn't believe American Airlines flight 77 was crashed into the Pentagon, where does he think it went? There is no doubt American Airlines flight 77 crashed, and American Airlines had a 757 go missing, so if it didn't crash into the Pentagon, I'd like to know where he thinks it went. >=(

Take the website with a grain of salt (OK, maybe a bulldozer full). Typical conspiracy theorist website, so I wouldn't believe too much of the editorial. For a less biased story and photo, check out the www.airdisaster.com website, which shows a photo taken by a Pentagon surveillance camera right after the 757 hit. I believe....

That was definitly not an aircraft of any type or size!
Why would the DOD put out something like the story it told?

The author of the conspiracy website fails to mention that this wedge of the building was recently renovated. This is the most likely reason as to why the building withstood the impact without sustaining more damage.

The website also incorrectly states that the aircraft penetrated only the outside ring. This CNN article states that it penetrated three of the rings.

Here is the exact photo taken from airdisaster.com:



I wonder who didn't do their job making sure the date was set right? Jeeeez... "Officials could not immediately explain why the date typed near the bottom of each photograph is Sept. 12 and the time is written as 5:37 p.m. The attack happened at about 9:37 a.m. on Sept. 11. Officials said it was possible that the date and time were added the day after the attack when they may have been catalogued for investigative purposes."

Here are the rest of the 5 photos if you care to see:
