I don't think the light poles at the Pentagon were "reinforced steel". In fact, I've never even seen a parking lot or street light pole that was
reinforced steel, and I cannot imagine a reason for there ever being such a thing.
As was said in a post above, the poles were probably aluminum. And the Pentagon is only a few hundred feet beyond the poles. Just out of curiosity,
as I am hardly an expert on any of this stuff, could it be possible that hitting these light poles is exactly what enabled the plane to strike the
Pentagon the way it did (or allegedly did) in the spot that it did? Perhaps hitting those poles was a lucky mistake on the part of the pilot(s). I
apologize in advance as this is probably an incredibly stupid question, so please forgive me if it is indeed just that!
But back to the poles themselves... I've seen automobile accidents that made similar light poles bend and break light match sticks. And we're
talking about relatively weak vehicles at relatively low speeds in comparison to a Boeing 767 traveling at 500 MPH. And while under any other
circumstances, hitting something like light poles would easily cause a plane to crash, I think in this case there was really nowhere for the plane to
go after hitting those light poles besides the Pentagon itself and maybe a hundred yards of grass and/or parking lot in front of it.
And while I'm throwing out stupid questions, here's another... Is there any evidence (besides eyewitness testimony) that the airliner (or whatever
it was) actually struck the light poles? Or is it possible that the force of an airliner flying at 500MPH a couple dozen feet above ground level
could have generated enough force to knock one of these over? After all, I doubt they are anchored in there to the point that they could survive
hurricane-forced winds or something. It's possible that they are simply bolted onto a concrete block and are not even buried in the ground at all,
like telephone poles tend to be. In fact, I believe that is the case when it comes to light poles... they are just bolted onto something and not
actually buried or cemented in the ground. I also recall seeing that there was damage from the plane to some of the cars that were on the highway in
front of the Pentagon as it flew over. Obviously that was not from directly striking the cars. So is it possible that the same force that allegedly
damaged peoples windshields, etc., was the same force that took down these light poles? Again, forgive me if these questions are incredibly stupid.
I'm not a regular 9/11 conspiracy poster as it all got old for me a few years ago (I know, I should be more interested simply because I should be
demanding the truth of my government!).
Anyway... my whole theory on this is that if the government was directly involved, and I don't mean just ignoring intelligence and possibly letting
the attacks happen, I'm talking direct involvement... then it would have taken a hell of a lot of people to pull it off. And however cold and
calculating those people would have to be, they are still human beings just like you and me. And I can't imagine that every single one of them was
able to stand by and watch this country and this world's reaction to 9/11, as well as watching the mourning of 9/11 victims' relatives, and not come
forward to absolve their sins. I just refuse to believe it is possible for such a huge conspiracy to exist without a single person eventually coming
forward in the nearly 7 years that have transpired since, regardless of whatever threats the government has made against them and their loved ones.
The implications of the government orchestrating these attacks far outweighs any threats against those involved or their loved ones. And coming
forward to confess your involvement in 9/11, as well as the culpability of the government, only to have you and/or your family suddenly die under
suspicious circumstances, would only lend more credibility and more attention to your confession.
Now I'm sure people are going to blast me or call me a debunker or whatever. But if you look at my post history on this site you will see that it's
just not the case. I'm just a regular guy who has always been interested in conspiracies, UFO's, paranormal stuff, etc. And I am not about to
stand here and claim that the government had nothing to do with 9/11. For all I know they were entirely behind it. But I just can't swallow that
yet based on the "evidence" I've seen. Sure, there are a ton of questions that need to be answered. And there are a ton of legitimate suspicions
and contradictions that have been raised by many on this site and elsewhere. But it's a far leap from that to claiming that the government
orchestrated all of this, especially when the whole conspiracy segment of the public cannot even agree on what exactly happened on 9/11.
