The Pentagon 9/11 Truth & Disinformation
"The most perfidious way of harming a cause consists of defending it deliberately with faulty arguments" - Friedrich Nietzsche
Before even reviewing any of the evidence at the Pentagon we know there was no way the perpetrators could have known ahead of time that when the attacks were over, that they alone would be in control of all images and/or videos of the attack. The attack occurred in a highly-exposed area, during rush-hour on a weekday morning. They had to have presumed someone might record it. A single image would reveal the lie. This is exactly what happened in Manhattan, when a documentary filmmaker working nearby heard a plane low overhead and swung his camera upwards just in time to catch the North Tower impact.
One of the most telling things about this claim is that is would have served no purpose for the attackers, while adding numerous additional and unnecessary complications. The notion that no commercial airliner hit the pentagon does not even qualify as a hypothesis, because it does not explain observations. In fact, it goes counter to the substantial body of evidence we do have.
The function of the no planes meme is obvious. That dozens of cameras ring the roof of the pentagon yet the only video released were five frames from a parking garage camera, shot through a fish-eye lens, seems like a transparent attempt to push the no planes meme. Just because footage of impact was never released does not mean it did not exist. To even suggest such a thing is ludicrous. It simply means those in control chose to not release it and mostly likely, destroyed it, just like they did the hundreds of tons of evidence at Ground Zero. Watch David Chandler's "Going Beyond Speculation" and read the papers linked below.
The idea that no large commercial aircraft hit the pentagon was out of the gate almost immediately. The first person to spread this idea widely was French journalist Thierry Meyssan, in a book published within 90 days of the attacks, and subsequently translated into dozens of languages. [see: The Complete No Planes on 9/11 Timeline The same book was reprinted again and again, with minor changes (like CIT did with its 'documentary') using different titles for subsequent editions over the years, i.e. "L'effroyable imposture", "11. September. Der inszenierte Terrorismus," "La Terrible Impostura," "Le Pentagate", "O pentagate", "L'incredibile menzogna. Nessun aereo è caduto sul Pentagono," "Pentagate Hunt The Boeing," "L'incredibile menzogna", "9/11: The Big Lie" etc. Based on nothing other than the deceptive use of photographs and mischacterization of the size of the hole.
No Planes claims are designed to do a number of things. Not least of which is to be as offensive as possible by denying the victims even existed, or that they did not die there. It would have added numerous complications for the attackers and no reason is ever given how would have benefited them to use a 'missile' or a" bomb", etc. rather than the already-hijacked Flight 175.
An interesting comparison case is that of TWA 800, where the official story says that a missile was not involved. Yet 100 eyewitnesses all say they saw a missile hit the plane. It was a bltant cover-up. See the TWA 800 Documentary on YouTube. Eyewitnesses have no reason to lie. Although eyewitness accounts are considered one of the poorest forms of evidence in a courtroom, when there is a large body of concordant accounts, their value as evidence increases exponentially. If you have 100 people saying they saw the same thing (remember, eyewitnesses have no reason to lie), it is a pretty safe bet that is what happened. In this case we have a catastrophic event that left numerous trails of identifiable evidence.
Disinformation today is a finely-honed craft that exploits the way memory functions. Through the use of keywords memes are formed. They serve as triggers that result in creating a conditioned mental/emotional response through the pairing of ideas and our feelings about them. This way, they are spread like a virus, from person to person throughout much of society.
They are far more sophisticated than might first seem the case. They target different groups (both inside and outside the Truth Movement) and co-opt people's best intentions.
Nonsense as a weapon is nothing new. What is particularly insidious about the claim that no plane hit the pentagon is that it works in tandem with the claim that no planes hit the towers, -that they were "CGI on TV only", a much more patently absurd claim. In this way, it hijacks the more plausible claim (based purely on a superficial review of the evidence) that Flight 77 did not hit the pentagon, of which no footage was ever released and no large plane debris remained, and associates the two using the same 'no plane/911 truth' meme in the minds of people already predisposed to not facing the implications of 9/11.
