The Pentagon Video Fraud

In mid-May 2006 an organization called "Judicial Watch" claimed to have forced the Pentagon to release video footage of the attack on the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001. This was reported all over the mainsteam media with headlines such as:

Images released of jet hitting Pentagon
Pentagon releases Flight 77 videos from 9/11
Video Catches Moment Plane Crashes Into Pentagon on 9/11
Flight 77 not a hoax

And typically these reports contained assertions such as:

The Pentagon released yesterday the first video images of American Airlines Flight 77 crashing into the military headquarters building ...

The US government has released CCTV footage of American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

The US government on Tuesday released video clips for the first time showing how a hijacked airliner struck the Pentagon and exploded ...

The US Department of Defense has released tapes that show terrorist-controlled American Airlines Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon.

In fact the material released does not show this at all. The lying mainstream media is using the old trick of telling the mark (the reader in this case) what they are about to see and then showing them something; the gullible mark will then believe they see what they have been told to see.

The material released is little more than the five so-called CCTV frames released (or rather, "leaked") years ago, pictures which were quickly judged by astute observers as probably faked.

Xymphora has a good commentary on the newly released material, in which he says:

If you look at the video (I downloaded a copy from here), you can see that it is a collection of stills joined together, and of such bad quality that you cannot tell what hit the Pentagon. It is a manufactured product, and therefore can't be analyzed to provide any evidence as to the speed of the plane, and can't be analyzed to see if there are anomalies in the video. It is literally mostly smoke. It really is of no more use than the stills that have already been released, and the most amazing thing about it is that people claim that it now settles the issue of what hit the Pentagon. It certainly does not. ...

Although Judicial Watch asked for all the recordings [the camera recordings of the Pentagon attack from the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation], it pronounced itself satisfied after getting just one, one which did not, and could not, put to rest the conspiracy theories.

One of Xymphora's readers left this sagacious comment:

The recently released "video" is such a fraud that I had to laugh out loud when I saw the news coverage on CNN. You must be joking? I kept asking the screen. After the big buildup in the media, and after having had 4 1/2 years to play with their advanced digital technology, that's the best they could come up with? Grainy footage (or as xymph claims, a series of stills) that shows nothing conclusive? That's the most and best video surveillance footage that one of the most secure and highly-guarded buildings in the world could produce? I've watched it over and over again and whatever the whitish-grayish streak/nosecone/UFO is, it certainly doesn't strike me as a large, unwieldy 757 jetliner. Much smaller. The thing was positively streaking in at very high speed (within a second or so it goes from barely appearing at the right of the frame to massive fireball, with no intermediate shots of jetliner). It also had to have been traveling mere feet off the ground to come in at the level it did. Is it at all plausible that a large, unwieldy, 100+ ton jetliner, traveling at hundreds of mph, and piloted by (supposedly) an inept amateur who flunked flight training school on a small Cessna, and virtually skimming the ground to the point of taking out 5 lightpoles, making bystanders duck for cover, and clipping the antenna off a SUV (the Official Story), streaked into a flawless groundfloor impact of the Pentagon, without so much as leaving any recognizable debris at the scene? S-U-U-R-R-E.

Rather than debunking the claims of conspiracy theorists, as the paid media shills so pompously and smugly claimed, this new "tape" merely reinforces my contention that the Pentagon was struck by a missile. No true skeptic of the Pentagon story will be persuaded by this sham, and it wasn't aimed at the gullible public who never doubted the Official Story. The real target was the skeptics, but it wasn't to debunk their claims — it was to act as CONFIRMATION of them. Yes, this is just another mindfuck from the national security state, a way for it to laugh and give skeptics the middle finger while saying, "Yes, you're right, we did stage the attacks and hit the Pentagon with a missile. And you know what? It doesn't matter. We got away with it." Score a big one for the bastards — if they feel confident and arrogant enough to taunt us this way, it spells big trouble ahead.

Right. Four years and eight months after the murder of nearly 3000 Americans the murderers have not been exposed; they still sit behind their desks in the White House and the Pentagon, and appear on TV promoting their fraudulent and vicious "War on Terror". They believe that the American people are such gullible fools, as shown by their acceptance of (if not belief in) the absurd and ridiculous official (cover) story, that they can continue to commit whatever further crimes they wish, including the "supreme international crime" of waging war on countries that present no discernible and likely threat (Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq in the recent past, Panama earlier, with Iran now in their sights). In any half-civilized country with an uncorrupted police and judicial system these murderers would have been exposed years ago, and by now would have been tried, convicted and executed. But no, this is the United States in the early 21st Century, a nation which apparently knows no shame.

Joe Quinn concludes his New Doctored Video of Pentagon Attack Release — Confirms Boeing Was Not Involved thus:

Even in the event that evidence for the obvious controlled demolition of the WTC towers were to be publicly revealed and accepted, the U.S government could plausibly claim that 'al-Qaeda' somehow managed to plant explosives in the buildings, that this evidence had somehow been overlooked due to "incompetence" in the 9/11 investigation. The incompetence angle could be used, as it has been already, as a plausible explanation for many other areas that would ordinarily point to government complicity. The Pentagon attack, however, is a very different matter. If it were ever to be publicly revealed that it was not Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon, there is simply no way that the U.S government [could] continue to claim that "al-Qaeda did it" or lie its way out of it, because they would have to explain what happened to Flight 77 and its passengers. It is for this reason that the "no Boeing at the Pentagon" theory has been thoroughly attacked and maligned by government shills and many alleged 9/11 investigators.

The Pentagon attack holds the key to the entire 9/11 mystery, it presents the best opportunity to blow the lid completely off the entire sordid deal and reveal the very, very disturbing reality of the nature of the U.S. government and that other Middle Eastern agency and the roles they both played in wantonly murdering almost 3,000 American citizens on September 11th 2001.

A couple of websites (see below) now display this animation, which is intended to show how the video would have appeared if a Boeing 757 really had flown into the Pentagon:

After being informed, the editors at Signs of the Times and at Prison Planet acknowledged the source of this animation. It was done by Leonard Spencer in March 2004 for his article on this site, The Attack on The Pentagon.
