It’s been five years since terrorism grappled America, spurring a seeming endless trail of hampered freedoms. Even now, to this day, the Bush regime continues it’s role in murky dealings. The legislative nightmares and fumbled policies may pale in comparison to the attacks of September 11th, 2001 and for good reason.
On May 16th, 2005 footage was finally released officially by the Department of Defense via Freedom of Information Act. The captures entail one frame of a thin, white protrusion entering from the right side. The next frame captures a silver-white explosion, followed by a fireball and trailing smoke. For your convenience, Intoxination provides you with that video:
Unfortunately, these videos provide poor coverage at best, but what can we gather from them? We see in the first video, a thin-white object entering the frame from right to left. The second video, however, captures more of the missile-like object. Here is the still frame of the second video with a before and after shot:
As you can see, the object is rather thin. No noticeable shadows are cast from the object so to be fair, we’ll focus instead on why it took so long to release these captures. Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton is reported to have hoped that this footage would put an end to conspiracy theories. The only question remaining is, will it?
There are currently an estimated 84 other video captures of the Pentagon on September 11th. If this is truly the goal via the Freedom of Information Act, why not release all of them? Put to end these seething questions which won’t go away. Could releasing all the footage really threaten national security? If so, why?
Jamie McIntyre reported on-scene the day of September 11th. The CNN correspondent professed what he saw on that day. A transcript is provided:
“JAMIE MCINTYRE: From my close-up inspection, there’s no evidence of a
plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon.
“The only site, is the actual side of the building that’s crashed in.
And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough
that you pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing
sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around which would
indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon
and then caused the side to collapse.
“Even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that
the floors have all collapsed, that didn’t happen immediately. It
wasn’t until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was
weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed.”
Can the families of 9/11 accept the released video as adequate? McIntyre has retracted his original report even though he was on camera at the time so a common consensus may not reach them with any real sense of solace for some time. The only thing we can do, however, is to keep asking why. These victims of 9/11 deserve full disclosure of the events which took place. The millions of Americans deserve to know just what and how exactly this event unfolded.
