(May 16, 2006) — The release of new video images of Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon is both a direct assault against a 9/11 truth movement that has flourished in recent months and an attempt to reinforce the attendant propaganda of 9/11 in light of Bush’s 29% approval rating.
Before the release of the new frames news networks immediately went on the attack, saying that the images finally put to rest “conspiracy theories” and questions about the official story.
In addition, Fox News commentators related with pensive looks and pursed lips that this footage answers the furore over secret NSA wiretaps and surveillance by ‘reminding Americans why it was being done’.
Fox anchors also attacked Charlie Sheen’s ‘ridiculous assertions’ after the actor went public with his 9/11 doubts in late March. News networks hyped the video as some kind of hot tip yet when it was played the anchors looked disappointed because it barely shows anything we haven’t already seen, a grainy shot spoiled by sun glare of a blurry object and then a fireball. Go to Fox News to view the video images.
Alex Jones and this website have always approached the Pentagon subject with caution because we were wary that it was a potential honey pot that would be used to distract and later discredit the 9/11 truth movement.
We asked why mainstream hit pieces always seemed to obsess over the Pentagon issue while ignoring other far weightier facets of the 9/11 inside job evidence.
The tactic has always been to create a straw man argument that can be set up and knocked down at a convenient time. The image below shows the supposed nose cone of the object.
This is also a political boon for President Bush. The timing is precise and has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that the Moussaoui trial has ended. Bush’s approval ratings are at 29% and his administration is being battered from pillar to post over the NSA spying scandal. What better time to replay the horror of 9/11 and attempt to reinforce fealty to the government’s lauded efforts to keep us all safe from terrorists by taking our rights away?
The release of these images comes at a time when the 9/11 truth movement is at its most prominent. This is a targeted assault intended to quash questions about 9/11 and discredit the movement. TV news anchors are already uniform in their talking points in using the video images to attack 9/11 skeptics.
What remains clear is the fact that news networks are steadfast to ask questions about the real issues surrounding 9/11, such as the implosion of Building 7, the NORAD stand down and the fact that all the evidence points towards the hijackers being US government agents.

What a pathetic little piece of film. Considering they’ve had over 4 years with the defence budget and access to hollywood to produce a film to release — this is the best they can do, with the sun-spot on the lens in the wrong place in relation to the sun.
Pentagon Video Should show 6 Frames of Boeing before Hit
911 Truth Action
Plane takes up to half a second to travel its own length at ground speed — enough for camera to show several full, clear images before explosion, he asserts.
Washington, DC, May 20th, 2006. Amid massive publicity, the government released a few more frames of footage allegedly showing the crash of a Boeing 757 at the Pentagon on September 11, 2002 last week.
One point has not been made in the debate, says John Leonard, publisher of 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA, which he calls the most radical 9/11 critique in print. The ground speed of the plane has been estimated at 250 to 350 miles per hour.
That equals 360 to 500 feet per second. The Boeing 757 measures 155 feet. For the plane to travel its own length, approximately the width of the field of vision in the video, would take 0.3 to 0.43 seconds. Most cameras take 24 frames per second. So there should be 7 to 8 frames showing the plane approaching the building before it hits.
What does Leonard himself believe about the Pentagon? He says it was probably sleight of hand, the simple first trick any apprentice magician learns. A large plane may have approached the building in a diversionary maneuver, to fool the witnesses, then avoided it by flying over it — the building is quite low.
The object striking the building was probably a cruise missile. Such missiles may fly at around 1,800 mph near the surface, making them hard to see. 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA proposes the thesis that 9/11 was an inside job by a war faction within the government, heirs of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer, who signed off on the 1962 Operation Northwoods scheme to shoot down a plane and blame it on Cuba to fabricate a pretext to invade that country.
The author Webster Griffin Tarpley, like Leonard, believes that there were no Arab hijackers; he says they were patsies or decoys who were framed to invent a pretext to invade Arab countries.
The government could reply that security cameras only take one frame per second. However, there were many more cameras trained on the spot — some reports say as many as 80 — with all footage being confiscated by the FBI. “Why are we only getting a few more frames from the same old footage released 4 years ago?” Leonard asks.
