At first, I dismissed the 9/11 truther's contention that a lack of plane parts and a lack of damage to the Pentagon building and surrounding area proved that a 757 never struck the Pentagon. Then, I saw the following video
National Security Alert (video above) incorporates evidence that Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis - part of the 2006 Citizen Investigation Team - gathered together, clearly establishing that the plane seen flying low over Arlington on 9/11 did not hit the Pentagon, discrediting the directional approach and path of the aircraft claimed by the official report, along with lots of other undeniable evidence.
Using the reported speed and other values from the released 2006 NTSB alleged black box data, Pilots for 9/11 Truth calculated the g-force required for the pilot to descend to the levels of the light poles and then pull up instantaneously to enter the building low and level enough as required by the physical damage would indicate. They found it aeronautically impossible for this aircraft to have pulled out of that dive instantaneously and be level with the lawn. It gets even worse when factoring in the NTSB reported altitude of 699 feet above sea level.
eye-witnesses, many of whom were aviation professionals and police officers, independently and unanimously confirmed a north-side approach of the plane, when all official documents reported a south-side approach. And even though a few of these witnesses saw the plane start to pull up, none of these witnesses actually saw the plane fly away. Why? Aside from the fact that they were running, diving or ducking for cover, the explosion was timed exactly at the moment the plane started to pull up totally obscuring their view of the plane flying away.
Nevertheless, a few people saw the plane fly away who did not see it approach. One man ran out as soon as he heard the explosion and that's when he saw the plane fly away. Other witnesses were recorded by the Center for Military History soon after 9/11/2001 as saying that a bomb went off and that a jet kept on going. And then there is Lloyde (above) the taxi -driver...well, you just have to watch.For as much hardship as we the people have endured for the actions of a very few entitled and golden-spooned few; it's amazing that we, the predestined paupers are not burning down the house for answers that actually make sense.
And, for those of us who do question why there is only one ounce of real gold for every 100 ounces sold on paper; the inconsistencies, weird coincidences, suspicious activity (suspicious trading of Put Option Contracts on American and United Airlines before 9/11) regarding 9/11; the endless corporate scandals; the financial crisis of 2008; the extension of Bush tax-cuts for the richest Americans at a time when the disparity between the wealthy and middle-class is higher than it's ever been; the vanishing middle class; and the immunity (stealing America's jobs, retirement, wealth...war crimes) granted to the entitled, golden-spooned few, we receive half-assed answers...that is, if we get any answers at all.
The International Center for 9/11 Studies' - founded in 2008 by Director James Gourley - efforts to encourage the release of relevant information regarding the events that took place on 9/11, from government agencies, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), under the Freedom of Information Act has manifested results. They have secured the release of tens of thousands of photographs, and hundreds of hours of video footage, from the NIST.
They are trying to get this data in the hands of interested researchers, but they need the community's help to examine this material, much of which has not been seen before.
The Center filed a FOIA Request with NIST on January 26, 2009, seeking production of “all of the photographs and videos collected, reviewed, cited or in any other way used by NIST during its investigation of the World Trade Center building collapses.” Following several unsuccessful attempts to get NIST to even acknowledge receipt of the Request, the Center was forced to file a lawsuit on May 28, 2009. Shortly after the lawsuit was filed, the Request was assigned a reference number, and NIST began periodically releasing batches of responsive records. To date, the Center has received over 300 DVDs and several external hard disk drives that contain responsive records - more than 3 terabytes of data so far – and NIST has indicated that additional records will be released in the future.The following videos are just a couple examples of the video footage and photographs used by the (NIST) for its investigation of the collapse of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7.
We are currently looking at the best ways to distribute these materials to interested researchers and journalists around the world. It has taken NIST more than 8 months so far to produce a partial archive of photographs and videos in their possession, but we hope to be more efficient in our efforts. Because of the huge volume of data, we are working on a wiki-style website to facilitate review and discussion of any interesting items that are discovered by researchers.
Fox News actually examines the collapse of WTC bldg 7
The video below shows two firefighters who had just escaped from one of the Twin Towers discussing how secondary explosions inside the building caused the lobby to collapse.
The video below is raw footage from a news outlet of the South Tower exploding. Explosions can be seen ahead of the collapse front. The newscaster even calls it a “huge explosion.”
Below is a video recorded after the collapse of the Twin Towers was released, where Michael Hess, the Corporation Counsel for NYC, can be seen calling for help from the 8th floor of WTC Building 7. This footage further corroborates the testimony of Barry Jennings, the former Deputy Emergency Manager of the New York City Housing Authority, who reported that he and Hess were trapped on the 8th floor after an explosion inside the building destroyed the stairwell beneath them. Barry Jennings died two days before the release of the NIST Final Report on the collapse of WTC7. Despite the significance of Jennings' position with NYC on 9/11 and his controversial eyewitness testimony regarding the collapse of WTC7, the media has not investigated or reported on his death, nor reported on his statements.
As Plato once said, “The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” It's not the evil men who are the problem; it's the good men - who far outnumber those who are dangerous - "who can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders."
Another provocative 9/11 video that should, at the very least, raise questions about what really happened on that tragic day.
What really happened with the planes that hit the twin towers? The Pentagon?
The official story has more holes than the sum of all of the Dunkin donuts consumed since Dunkin' Donuts opened its doors. Both planes that hit the towers, according to data distributed by the NTSB, were traveling at a speed 100 mph faster than the maximum speed allowed for passenger planes. Moreover, the plane that hit the pentagon was reported to have been traveling at a speed of 550 mph, only a few feet from the ground. This is absolutely impossible. The "ground effect" (vortex or cushion of air under the wings) would have prevented the plane from getting anywhere near the ground at that speed.
And then there is the 757 that crashed in Shenksville, also traveling at a speed of 500 mph (too fast for a passenger plane) that mysteriously disappeared off the face of the earth along with all of its passengers.
So, what happened to all of the passengers?
Well, the recently declassified CIA document, Operation Northwoods, contained a series of ideas, one of which was to fly a passenger plane with an invented list of passengers over Cuba, then substitute a drone for the passenger plane,that they could then crash into the sea, and follow it up by accusing Cuba of taking down that plane, providing an excuse to react and invade Cuba.
This bright idea was obviously shelved for a later date. Could that later date be 9/11? When the technology was advanced enough to produce drones as possible replacements for the so-called passenger planes?
And for those who can't believe our government is capable of taking out its own citizens...Operation North Woods documented that all the Joint Chiefs of Staff (army, air force, navy, marines) came up with a detailed plan to bomb American cities - thus, potentially murdering thousands of Americans - in order to frame-up Cuba to use as a pre-text to invade Cuba. In these documents, it was stated that they could rely on the media to help them create the helpful wave of indignation that would galvanize the American people against Cuba.
The media, including all of the networks, publishing houses, Hollywood, got together with the CIA after WW II to brainwash the American people into this cold war against the Soviet Union.
Why do some people ignore the fact that much of the WTC Steel turned to dust?
Myth of Osama Bin Laden
Former CIA officer and veteran, Milt Bearden talks to Dan Rather (starts at 32:12), two days after 9/11 occurred, about the "myth of Osama Bin Laden." Bearden, who observed Bin-Laden in action, was not convinced he was capable of masterminding 9/11.
"I know we live in a country where we we're often told the first thing that comes to your mind, put it down...put the little mark in there. I feel slightly uncomfortable bec ause I spent so many years wondering how the myth of Osama Bin Laden got started. We have the Osama Bin Laden who is the great war hero in Afghanistan; we have the Osama Bin Laden who was trained by the CIA, funded and supported by CIA, during three-years of war. I was there the same time Osama Bin Laden was there. He was not the great war hero that went in and fought the Soviet Union to a stand still. The CIA had nothing to do with him. I think that mythological Osama Bin Laden, never mind that he's an evil man...that there is another man out there.
This was a tremendously sophisticated operation against the United States...more sophisticated than anything, anyone would ascribe to Osama Bin Laden. I think we need to do a little homework. We need to appoint a 'team b' that looks for somebody else. I'm just not convinced it was Bin-Laden." - Milt Bearden, former CIA officer, speaking to Dan Rather on 9/13/2001.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
Scholars for 9/11 Truth Justice
Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe who have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day based on solid data and facts -- since 9/11/2001 is the catalyst for many of the events shaping our world today -- and the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers or facts.

Supplemental Presentations by the Citizen Investigation Team
Lloyde England & His Taxi Cab - The Eye of the Storm from Citizen Investigation Team on Vimeo.
Citizen Investigation Team presents this follow-up presentation to their previous piece, "The First Known Accomplice?". Get ready for an intense, surreal, and disturbing personal experience with the famous taxicab driver Lloyde England who claims the windshield of his cab was speared by a light pole that was allegedly hit by the plane that allegedly hit the Pentagon on 9/11. The impossibility of Lloyde's story is exposed as we deconstruct the details and take a road trip with Lloyde to physically examine the actual cab that he still has preserved under a tarp on his property in the country. In light of the now proven approach of the plane on the north side of the former Citgo gas station, nowhere near the downed light poles, it has become painfully clear why Lloyde's story doesn't add up. See www.CitizenInvestigationTeam.com for more details.
Over The Navy Annex featuring Terry Morin from Citizen Investigation Team on Vimeo.
This 24 minute short is an addendum to our previous presentation, "The North Side Flyover". Terry Morin is a well known witness to the Pentagon attack jet who was at the Navy Annex and is 100% sure the plane flew directly over him contrary to all official reports, data, and physical damage. This simple fact is corroborated by many other witnesses and proves the plane did not hit the Pentagon.
