CIA/NRO planned plane-crash-into-building drill just 5 min before Pentagon was hit & included a smoke generator.

" April 2001 NORAD requested that war games run by the Joint Chiefs include an ''event having a terrorist group hijack a commercial airline ... and fly it into the Pentagon."

Donald Rumsfeld -  "Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center."

"We heard what sounded like a  missile."

"He said the plane, which sounded like the high-pitched squeal of a fighter jet, appeared to hold about eight to 12 people."

"Where did the plane go? For some reason I expected it to bounce off the Pentagon wall in pieces. But there was no plane visible..."

"There was no huge explosion, no huge rumbling on ground, it just went ‘pfff.’"

"...Capt. Charles Burlingame, who had been a Navy F-4 pilot and once worked on anti-terrorism strategies in the Pentagon...Friends and family remembered him as a man who was unabashedly patriotic, who embraced military life even after he retired from...working until 1996 as a liaison in the Pentagon (where he had a Naval Reserve officer). When his plane went down Tuesday, it ripped through a section...that includes the Navy Reserve offices.

"Investigators have identified remains [of all but one]...who were aboard American Airlines Flight 77...including those of the five hijackers...A team of more than 100 workers...primarily relied on DNA testing..." -Washington Post

"I'm still to this day amazed that he could have flown into the Pentagon... [Hanjour] could not fly at all."

"The side they hit wasn't that populated... the other contributing factors -- fewer engines ... it hit initially on the newly renovated section to withstand more of an impact... the old section ...had just been evacuated"

"I was convinced it was a missile. It came in so fast it sounded nothing like an airplane."

"I did not see the engines, I saw the body and the tail."

On Sept. 10, a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.

 "...the gas station's security cameras are close enough to the Pentagon to have recorded the moment of impact. "I've never seen what the pictures looked like...The FBI was here within minutes and took the film."

" of the most bizarre ironies of all this is that [the five Flight 77] hijackers lived in a motel right outside the gates of the NSA."

Do you see any burn marks, skid marks, or plane debris on the Pentagon's lawn?

According to officials, the explosion at the Pentagon was caused when American Airlines Flight 77, a 100 ton Boeing 757 commercial airliner, crashed at ground level into the only section of the building that was being renovated to be more "blast resistant" and which housed the fewest amount of employees in it.  Flight 77 was allegedly hijacked by five Arab Islamic terrorists on an apparent suicide mission killing all 64 people on board.  Officials claim the the flight recorders from Flight 77 and the remains of all but one of the 64 passengers on board where found at the crash scene.

A French website,
Hunt the Boeing!, set off a fire storm suggesting that the explosion at the Pentagon could not have been caused by a Boeing 757 because of the relatively small amount of damage done to the building, contradictory eyewitness accounts, and from the lack of plane debris.  They suggest that the explosion might have been caused by a missile and that this incident was perpetrated by extremist rightwing factions in the U.S. government. 

This site attempts to analyze the evidence further to help you make up your own mind as to what really happened at the Pentagon.
