Has everyone seen the new Pentagon footage from 9/11 yet?
Rubbish isn’t it?
Yet, somehow, the likes of the BBC, CNN and Fox seem pretty confident that this puts a stake through the heart of 9/11 conspiracy theories once and for all
Which is kind of hard to accept unless you’re willing to believe that a man who washed out of a basic Cesna pilot’s course was able to fly a Boeing 757 two feet off the ground at 300mph and apparently operate some kind of rudimentary Star Trek style cloaking device at the same time.
Actually, I have no trouble accepting that Flight 77 may have hit the Pentagon as claimed. If for no other reason than I have heard no reasonable explanation as to why the supposed conspirators would have decided to swap it for a missile or drone.
I am a Flight 77 agnostic.
I do have an a strong opinion regarding the many people chattering away on the Internet who buy into the No Plane Hit the Pentagon conspiracy theory, big time.
One of these days some non crap footage of a Boeing 757 hitting the Pentagon, as described by official accounts, may very well appear.
There are plenty of other, sounder, reasons to be super sceptical about what really happened on 9/11. Off the top of my head…
- the collapse of WTC7
- the stand down of the US air defence
- the short sales of airline stocks
- the suppressed testimony of firemen talking about secondary explosions within the Twin Towers
- magic cell phones that work at 30,000ft travelling at 400mph
- George Bush’s bizarre behaviour on the day
and many, many more
Amongst the veritable plethora of unanswered questions about that day the question of whether or not a plane hit the Pentagon is one of the shakiest on which to build a case.
If I were a professional 9/11 Conspiricist I wouldn’t touch it with a bargepole. That is unless the US Government insists on producing even more shonky footage.
The release of the new Pentagon video has relevance to an issue much nearer to home.
I haven’t blogged yet on the Official Narrative of the 7/7 bombings that was published last week, though plenty of others have. Suffice to say for now that it’s patent bollocks and the reluctance of our government to release any of the supposedly copious video footage of 7/7 strongly parallels the withholding of 9/11 footage.
The lesson to be learned from the shakiness of the No Plane Hit the Pentagon story is that people who smell a rat with regard to 7/7 would be well advised not to invest all their efforts and credibility on ‘honey pot’ issues that could blow up in their faces. I have a few examples in mind but... another time.
