CIT's No planes nonsense debunked in 3 minutes
The reason Flight 77 had to be what hit the pentagon on 9/11 is because the perpetrators could not have known ahead of time that the event would not be filmed or photographed by someone, in what is always a very crowded area at that time on a weekday morning. They could not possibly have known that when it was all over they would control all of the images. Even a single image would reveal the lie.
This is exactly what happened in Manhattan, when one of the Naudet brothers, documentary filmmakers, caught the first plane that impacted the North Tower on video, just because he happened to be filming nearby. So although it may not look like it, we should not forget that things are often other than they appear.
The entire idea (baseless claim) that no Boeing 757 could have possibly hit the pentagon is based on one thing alone: the pictures of the site. We see no large pieces of plane debris and so that must mean no plane crashed there. This is a mistake bc things are often other than they appear. These crashes were unprecedented and how a plane (or anything else) crashes will go a long way in determining what remains of it. We should weigh all of the available evidence to help guide our conclusions.
The response by the FBI was also revealing; they immediately ran around to all the local businesses and collected all the CCTV footage. So it had to be American Airlines flight 77, or an exact mock-up, which would make no sense given they already had control of flight 77. This alone precludes the possibility that it was something else ("a cruise missile" etc) that hit the building.
The DNA and witness evidence is also very compelling, as Hoffman notes. The lawn was covered with gravel shortly after the attack, (sounds like a proper forensic investigation) so we cannot really know that "there wasn't a mark on it' -as some claim, only that it appeared that way in the images (shot through long lenses, which create a dramatic foreshortening optical effect known as a telephoto crush) that we were shown. The fact that about 80 cameras ring the roof of the pentagon and the only thing released publicly were five non-consecutive frames from a parking garage camera, that show nothing definitive, is enough to be certain that that is not what happened. And then there a lot of other evidence./ Once they realized they controlled the images, the pentagon was seized upon as the central feature in a vast, well-funded and orchestrated campaign of disinformation.
The first book published postulating the idea that no Boeing hit the pentagon was written by French 'journalist' Therry Messan (Hunt The Boeing, 2002) was translated into 25 languages. I live in NYC and after some time had passed we received regular faxes (along with the usual fax spam) for months on end stating that, "911 Was a Hoax," the "planes were not real, but holograms" and that everyone should visit the "911hoaxdot.." bullshit website. Nonsense masquerading as 911 Truth. CIT's 'The Pentacon' & National Security Alert (i.e Pentacon 2.0), along with all the no planes claims were and remain part of this same effort to misdirect, mischaracterize and muddy the waters of the 911 Truth by claiming ( in countless variations over the years), all containing that same data kernel (meme) that 'no plane' or 'the wrong plane' or 'a missile' etc. hit or did not hit the pentagon
What happens the minds of the preoccupied and less critical masses when they hear "Truthers" say 'No plane at the pentagon' is that it translates into: "No planes hit the Towers" (which, being an absurd notion) becomes: "9/11 conspiracy theories are nonsense." The linking of good and bad data is a staple tactic in the spreading of propaganda. It has been said "the best disinformation is 90% true."
Because we do not have the videos showing the pentagon strike, while there is nothing even remotely questionable in the data that proves Towers 1 2 and 7 were destroyed through demolition, there is no need to mention the pentagon, (It is not a central claim) except by those conducting a new and legitimate investigation or as an example of the vast array of dis and mis information that clouds the issue.
The most deceitful way of undermining a cause consists of defending deliberately with faulty arguments
