roscoe Repetition of a lie does not make it any more true, even with all caps and many exclamation points. To say that there was no plane(a 757 full of fuel and people to be exact)at the Pentagon is a lie. One that the coroner and his helpers would beat the crap out of you for if they heard you say it. Whether from ignorance or belief, it's still an easily exposed lie and completely disrespectful to those thousands who lost their lives on that day to an attack by terrorists.

Aluminum burns bright silver, as does magnesium, the flash may have been the nose hitting the reinforced, bomb proof, concrete wall before the wings(and most of the fuel was in those wings). And Cordite has not been used in guns or explosives for half a century(it's corrosive and not stable over long periods), the last cartridges loaded with "gun cotton" were the 460 Weatherby Nitro Express. Semtex and Plastic explosives do not smell like Cordite or dynamite(both nitroglycerin compounds). What they probably smelled was aluminum oxide smoke familiar to anyone who has used a grinder. And no sign of explosives were found on site, just impact and fire damage. So, whatever impression was left in the witnesses' minds about what they saw, the physical evidence proves their statements to be in error(as it often does, humans are terrible at accurate observation and must be trained extensively to be trustworthy witnesses, all loud noises become explosions, they see tigers in the bushes that only rarely are actually there. Photos, videos and physical evidence have no such issues). There was a shockwave, but the witnesses overstated it's effects, most hit the ground due to physiological reactions(startle, drop, hide), especially if they have had military training). THERE WAS NO MAJOR SECONDARY SHRAPNEL. Generators and equipment really close to the impact point were not moved appreciably and received only superficial dings unless impacted directly by major pieces of the wings or engines(the entire fuselage went into the hole, the wings and engines disintegrated on impact with the wall). There can be no argument about what hit the Pentagon, it was a 757. It is delusional to insist otherwise. GrumpyPlease Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
