9/11 Pentagon Plane Crash Video To Be Released

Following a two year battle by the 'conservative, non-partisan educational foundation' called Judicial Watch, the US defence department is to finally release a video allegedly showing American Airlines Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon. The film footage, taken by a Pentagon security camera, is being released into the public domain following a request by Judicial Watch under the Freedom of Information Act. The film is already known as being the only available footage of the crash but up until now has only been seen as a series of still images.

The delay in releasing the evidence was necessary, the US government says, because of the trial of al-Qaeda plotter Zacarias Moussaoui which has only just completed. Judicial Watch said they wanted to obtain the video because "it was very important to complete the public record" on the attacks. Finally, we hope that this video will put to rest the conspiracy theories involving American Airlines Flight 77," President Tom Fitton said.

What a crap video! I am horribly disappointed. And, as a US taxpayer, I would expect my government to have.... well, as I write this-- I was going to say that they SHOULD have had cameras around our nation's strategic center-- then I thought 'it should just have plain defensive measures set up.'

frustrated. the impossibility of that event astounds me.
