American Airlines Flight 77, September 11, 2001

From CNN's Chronology of Terror: “9:43 a.m.: American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon, sending up a huge plume of smoke. Evacuation begins immediately.” On October 12, 2001, Lyric Wallwork Winik (great name and it's for real) interviewed Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for “Parade”, the little insert mag that is enclosed in many mainstream Sunday newspapers. She asked an embarrassing question. It was so embarrassing and unexpected in fact, that Rumsfeld answered it. “How did a war targeting civilians arrive on our homeland with seemingly no warning?" Winik asked. "There were lots of warnings," Rumsfeld answered. He went on to explain that the US had been warned and the Defense Department and the intelligence community couldn't figure the warnings out. It was up to the FBI, state law enforcement and local police to uncover and prevent the worst terrorist attack in US history, Rumsfeld said. Then Defense Secretary Rumsfeld said, "It is a truth that a terrorist can attack any time, any place, using any technique and it's physically impossible to defend at every time and every place against every conceivable technique. Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filled with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center. The only way to deal with this problem is by taking the battle to the terrorists, wherever they are, and dealing with them." Missiles? What missiles? That's just one of the questions that comes up when you read the actual timelines and eye-witness reports re the 9/11 attack that are available on the net. Flight 77 had 58 passengers and a flight crew of four. It was a big Boeing 757-200. What happened to the bodies? What happened to the wreckage? What happened to the 11,489 gallons of fuel that a Boeing 757 carries which would have splattered everywhere and everywhichway? Why was the hole that the plane made when it crashed into the side of the Pentagon so small? How come one of the alleged hijackers survived and is alive and well? And…WHAT MISSILES? Now that the mainstream media has apparently come to the conclusion that the Bush administration is so impotent that it can't do any real damage to newspapers that tell the truth, it's time for journalists to investigate the September 11th attack. There's too much evidence that the White House has engaged in some “Wag the Dog” fakery regarding the info it released to the public. And, the Bush administration being what it is, they did their fakery on the cheap. Questions are being asked. And since the Bush administration's producers of fake news are incompetent and the Pentagon didn't pay for professional-looking bogus productions or good forgers, the answers are available to any journalist who wants to find them. Investigating exactly what slammed into the Pentagon is a start. Because it's certainly beginning to look like it wasn't a Boeing 757. And since Rumsfeld said “missiles”…it looks a lot like it was a missile. And that brings up the question: What happened to the real Boeing 757 and its passengers and crew? Me…I have no idea what the real story is. But the baloney we've been told doesn't add up. Why would the White House lie regarding ANYTHING about 9/11? And if they've lied about Flight 77, have they lied about EVERYTHING?

When you come up against an extremely unlikely conclusion, don't become a conspiracy theorist -- instead question your assumptions.

For instance, regarding jet fuel spewed everywhere, how do you know that's what would happen? I, for one, don't think that's what would happen, because the laws of motion apply as well to jet fuel as anything else -- the fuel will go where the rest of the plane goes, mostly straight forward into the building. Then the fuel might set a lot of things afire, but itself burn up quickly, as happened at the World Trade Center.

And an airplane flying into a building is a freaking missile. That's not even a scientific theory, just simple English.

All the Bushists had to do was start prepping for an Iraq invasion while scaling back our domestic defenses. Which they did.
