There Was No Missile At the Pentagon - But the Plane Did Not Hit
(an open letter to the 9/11 truth movement)
by: Craig Ranke
Citizen Investigation Team
www.ThePentaCon.com
February 26, 2009

Citizen Investigation Team (CIT) has made it our mission to provide independent verifiable evidence revealing what truly happened at the Pentagon on 9/11/2001.

As it turns out we have been extremely successful in obtaining quite a large body of evidence that fatally contradicts the official story specifically proving how the attack jet that flew tree-top level over Arlington timed perfectly with the explosion did not hit the building as reported. Naturally such a scenario proves a complex conspiracy on 9/11 every bit as much as controlled demolition of the World Trade Center.

When considering a world-wide psychological black operation on this level we must also consider the counter measures that go along with it. Specifically counter-intelligence efforts otherwise known as disinformation that have been deliberately implemented to throw truth seekers off course.

As far as the Pentagon attack is concerned, the evidence we have uncovered reveals beyond a shadow of a doubt that the missile theory was the result of a very calculated, deliberate, and extremely effective counter-intelligence effort.

The primary results of this complex effort have been to throw us off course, cause a split in the movement (divide & conquer), and create factions that have launched furious campaigns to accept some sort of a plane impact or else avoid the Pentagon attack all together because it's too "divisive".

So in essence it has been wildly successful until CIT came along with a purely skeptical approach and refused all of it while uncovering independent evidence exposing the truth.

We refused to accept the official story, we refused to accept all previous theories, and we insisted on physically going to the area to find out what people on the street really saw. We intended on reporting our findings regardless of the results.

In addition to contacting as many of the previously published witnesses we could get a hold of we canvassed the neighborhood on foot to find previously unknown witnesses who have never spoken with the media or authorities.

No other evidence could possibly be any more independent than first-hand accounts from random witnesses that we could find on the street.

As it turned out, time and time again we heard the same story from absolutely everyone we could find. They all saw a very large low flying twin-engine commercial aircraft timed perfectly with a big explosion at the Pentagon.

Due to the complex topography and landscape most could not see the alleged impact point of the Pentagon and simply saw the plane and heard or saw the explosion in the distance and therefore assumed the plane must have hit as we were all told by the media and authorities.

But absolutely nobody we spoke with saw 2 planes, nobody saw a small plane or drone, and nobody saw anything remotely resembling a missile.

Imagine what your impression of the truth movement would be if you were a witness in the neighborhood who saw the plane but later heard about missile conspiracy theories.

Those aware of our work understand how we have uncovered that the real smoking gun is the true flight path of the plane which is entirely irreconcilable with all official data, reports, and the physical damage proving the plane people saw did not hit the building. The entire body of evidence we provide is available for free on our website here.

So the independent witnesses who were in the critical area right in front of the alleged impact side of the Pentagon all reported a single jet at the time of the attack however in the wrong place to hit the light poles or cause the damage to the building. But nothing at all was reported to have been witnessed on the necessary flight path to cause the physical damage. Because we have been unable to find a single piece of independent evidence for anything on the south side flight path we have logically concluded that the damage to the building was covertly implemented with pre-planted explosives similar to how they brought down the three WTC towers.

For years the truth movement has sat back and theorized primarily based off the available images of the event. No comprehensive independent effort to talk with the witnesses first-hand (and provide recorded accounts) had been undertaken by the media, authorities, or the official story skeptics.

People have been aware of a cover-up when considering the confiscation of all the surrounding security video tapes and they have longed for a release of this information despite the fact that it has been completely controlled by the suspect and therefore subject to manipulation. Many have considered rumors that certain unnamed alleged hotel employees had supposedly watched one of the tapes "in horror". People have hoped that these alleged individuals would reveal the truth if they could be found. For years the movement has demanded a release of these government controlled videos and lamented about getting a hold of these supposed hotel employees to find out what they saw.

CIT did much better than that by providing first-hand, on-location, video-taped interviews from actual witnesses to the event in real life! Not merely people who supposedly saw a grainy security video. So now we know what people really saw. Now we know there was a plane and we know that it could not have hit the building. This is exactly what we needed to end the speculation. The witnesses were there and their stories match! They saw what happened and they prove a deception. We removed the need for guess-work, speculation, and theorizing. We went right to the source and reported it direct for you. There isn't a reason on earth for any logical skeptic to reject definitive corroborated first-hand witness accounts proving the official story false.

So why has the truth movement for the most part insisted on continuing with speculation about missiles and/or remote guided 757 impact theories to counter the missile theories?

Because the counter-intelligence operation worked exactly as intended.

Obviously this endless debate about a false claim has served their purposes perfectly causing people to chase their tails while over-looking the hard evidence that has been uncovered in the mean time.

This situation already had most people frustrated with the Pentagon attack to the point that many had abandoned researching it all together before CIT even existed. Or else it has made people who are firmly in the missile camp reluctant to entertain anything that doesn't prove a missile. The psychological operation runs so deep that some in the movement have actually chosen to attack CIT personally instead of accepting the fact that the witnesses we spoke with prove a deception.

We refused to be dismissive or dogmatic and it led to the incredible amount of evidence we have obtained revealing an outcome that most didn't expect. As a result we have been forced to overcome this already convoluted and very heated debate just to get people to even look at the definitive evidence that we provide. The reality is that there is an equal amount of independent evidence for a missile as there is for a 757 impact. Zero.

Considering all that we have uncovered it's clear to us how effective this missile theory counter-intelligence effort has been. Think about the source. The missile was first mentioned by Donald Rumsfeld himself in what was written off as a slip of the tongue but then it was made famous by French conspiracy author Thierry Meyssan within the first months after the event.

But the most effective catalyst for this disinformation came in early 2002 with the unofficial leak of the blatantly doctored 5 frames from the Pentagon security gate camera. This incredibly effective psychological manipulation tool has been the single most over-analyzed piece of invalid government supplied "evidence" to date. It has caused the movement to be fixated on what could be discerned from the grainy ambiguous video frames as allegedly "hitting the building" while completely diverting us from the true smoking gun - the actual flight path of the plane.

From then on the missile theory phenomenon took on a life of its own as the entire notion of a missile attack on the Pentagon pretty much defined the early stages of the truth movement. Naturally an eventual revolt within the movement itself would be easily predicted setting the stage for us to emerge divided.

As it stands, we are headed towards the 8th anniversary of the attack and there still remains absolutely zero independent evidence for a missile and discussing the Pentagon attack at all is considered taboo in some corners.

The missile theory has remained popular and the divisiveness it has nurtured caused many to shy away from the hard evidence CIT presents proving a deception in a much different way.

Consider this a plea. We are asking you to remove yourself from your previous biases and look at this situation objectively. Familiarize yourself with the full body of information we provide and accept nothing less than 100% independent verifiable evidence moving forward.

The 9/11 operation can no longer be considered a conspiracy theory so we should not reduce it to such by continuing to focus on speculation over evidence.

Nothing that has been controlled and provided for by the government can fairly be accepted as valid evidence in any way shape or form. They aren't going to hand us a video tape proving what really happened and they certainly didn't do this when they deliberately leaked the doctored 5 frames in 2002. Obviously this was part of the plan.

It's imperative that we abandon speculation in light of the fact that we most certainly do have hard evidence proving a deception. CIT will be providing an additional free resource very soon to help everyone get the most pertinent information to the media and authorities in an efficient and professional package so stay tuned for that.

Please help us hyper-focus on the information that reveals this heinous crime as opposed to concentrating on distractions that cause the simple notion of 9/11 being an inside job to remain in the category of "outrageous conspiracy theories" for the masses.

The north side approach is real. It has been proven. It can not be neutralized or spun. No speculation required.

We have provided the evidence but we can only do so much. We need your help bringing it to light.

Thanks and peace.

Is what you are saying is that neither a missile or a plane caused the damage at the Pentagon, but a series of bombs?

A plane was seen, but it did not hit the Pentagon?

Could the plane have launched a missile or plowed a bomb into the Pentagon, or the bombs inside the Pentagon exploded as the plane neared?

Yes.

Precisely.

And we provide the evidence to prove it.

The plane was off course with the physical damage so it could not have launched a missile.

Plus out of the dozens of witnesses we have spoken with somebody would have seen it launch a missile if that happened.

Yes we believe the most logical conclusion is pre-planted explosives that were synchronized the with the plane.

It's pretty much the same as what happened at the WTC.

Real planes used as psychological tools of deception while the actual destruction was covertly implemented with pre-planted explosives.

The obvious difference between the two is that they clearly did not plan to completely demolish their own headquarters so they did not want the plane to hit in order to maintain surgically precise control of the damage.

But, where's the evidence, don't tell me i need to go to your site to see it?...

So i read through your posts but i couldn't find anything more than lots and lots of words telling us how you are right and how we must believe, but where are the numbers, i mean, post here the data, don't go trying to make people to go to your site.

You can post videos or pics here on the media section, and use the boards to post the information and discuss it, the fact that you are making this thread with the only purpose of getting hits on your site is bad enough for me so as to make avoid going there to read the info, if you really can't post everything here, at least it would be great if you approached the ATS boards in a different way, by actually discussing here the info instead of just posting an ad for your site and telling everyone to go there to read what you have to say.

Also, you have a dvd and a shop on your site, that's about what i need to see, sorry, i think the approach you take will only make you lose at the end, even if the info is good.

Edited to fix some mistakes and to add: i do believe what happened on 9/11 is not what we've been told, but i also believe that information should be free, specially this kind, and that at this time so late in the game, everyone that wants to sell a dvd or whatever, at least for me is just trying to make a buck out of it. sorry but this is my personal opinion.

If the plane was seen but did not hit the pentagon,and it was in fact explosives that destroyed it.How did the plane manage to fly away undetected from observers after the explosion?

I'm a long time member here and ALL of the evidence has been posted on this site.

Click on my name and go through all of my threads.

As I said in the article we'll be releasing a concise overview soon but there really is A LOT of information and I suggest you get a head start by viewing what you can.

If you don't want to go through my threads a list of all our presentations in chronological order is available here.

I suggest you start at the bottom with the first release.

Great question.

People saw it.

We have presented an interview with a Pentagon police officer who saw it flying away immediately after the explosion. His name is Roosevelt Roberts Jr and his account is featured in part 2 of this presentation.

We know that others saw it but many were fooled with a very deliberate 2nd plane cover story.

Nope. Absolutely no evidence of a missile anywhere near the Pentagon nor any evidence of the decoy aircraft dropping anything or losing part of itself as it flew Over the Naval Annex and North of the Citgo and approached the Pentagon. Nor did any person witness the decoy aircraft strike any light poles in its path. The only light poles laying on the ground were far south of the decoy aircraft flight path Over the Naval Annex.



Yes, apparently explosives planted near the Pentagon wall were timed to go off coinciding with the approach of the decoy aircraft. Later other explosives went off inside the Pentagon.

So don't bother. Who cares what you do? You have obviously already made up your mind and are far from open-minded. All of that information has already been posted here at ATS. It is simple to find for true interested justice and truth seeking persons. Every bit of CIT's info is freely available and you do not need to buy anything.

They have posted good-quality versions of all of their presentations online in multiple places. Everything that they have ever released is totally free to you or anyone on Earth. This data conclusively proves one of the most incredible and important facts of modern history: that the plane that allegedly crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11 did not.

This is funny, at least you could have made a better answer like the one the op did, instead of all that stuff, i also don't care what you think, i have not made my mind and I'm reading the information on this thread and will read the rest of the threads.

But, what i wanted to say is true, it would be better if it was approached in a different way, for example if there was a thread where all the information was organized in a way that can be followed easily, not everyone can spend half a day looking at lots of thread trying to make sense of everything.

And just because I'm not sure if you can see out of your high position where you have forgotten about how it is to be new on a site, i haven't really learned my way around this site yet, i don't usually post and also i don't usually read too much into the threads, unfortunately i have lots of things to do so i just keep a tab open with ATS and from time to time i go and read something, but not enough time to go and read the thousand of threads and posts.

Also, since you think so high of yourself that you can says something like



You have obviously already made up your mind and are far from open-minded


Won't it be something good if you didn't jump to conclusions right away without first asking or directing someone to the info? as the OP did?

By the way, to the OP, i did see your threads and i know you have been here for some time, so my apologies if what i said sounded wrong, it was not my goal to do it, i just felt that all that jumping from place to place makes it harder for someone to reach the info and understand it.

So anyway. I'm still reading, thanks for the info.

Edited to ad, i won't be answering anything anymore here, i don't want to derail the thread into some pointless argument.

Yeah i went to the site and noticed that it was for free online, and i didn't see that at first, so i jumped to conclusions to quickly, i have never believed the plane story, simply because it is too obvious that no plane crashed there, just a look at the pics is all that anyone should need to see that, and there is a lot of evidence, those who cannot see, are just fooling themselves, and as is well known, people will do whatever it takes to avoid having their reality destroyed, which usually means lying to themselves.

Fair enough. I'd begin by reading this short article and watching the video presentation upon which it is based. Here are the highlights of two of the four interviews presented in that video.

Then read this article and/or watch the accompanying video (which is linked to at the beginning of the article).

Another good overview was presented in the second half of a video by Pilots for 9/11 Truth. That can be found here. (It should automatically skip to the 22 minute and 38 second mark.)

After that you can browse through some of those other threads and you'll understand the context in which the data therein is being presented.

That's cool man.

Thanks for the respect and thanks for keeping an open mind.

I understand how this article is going to challenge a predominant mind-set for many which can be uncomfortable or unpopular.

Unfortunately that is the position that we are in when discussing a subject as complex as this.

And yes I know it would be nice to have all the evidence in a nice concise package and again, we're currently working on that.

But the complexity of this operation is unavoidable and our comprehensive investigation has been an organic process over the past couple of years.

We had to release the information as we obtained it edited as little as possible at first in order to get the full evidence in the public domain.

A concise edited summary is coming though.

I promise!

But stick around.

Keep paying attention and any input or questions are welcome.

Obviously if you feel it's off topic there are plenty of threads for you to bump!

Peace.

Thanks, Craig and CIT. Your work (and the manner and tone in which you present it) is admirable and much appreciated. You bring up many important questions as well as new evidence and testimonials in your witness interviews. I thank you for the countless hours and energy you and CIT have put into this research.

So how can we go about charging Bush, and Cheney for murder?
The American people want justice; this is why they covered it up.
Bush, and Cheney refused to go on the record, and testify to the 911 commission.
The Bush administration squashed every 911 inquiry, and investigations I have always wonder why, now we know.

This is ridiculous. Craig claims that because a few eyewitnesses mis-judged the flightpath of the aircraft that it couldn't have impacted.

Every eyewitness in the area, including the ones in the linked videos, state that the plane hit the Pentagon, and there were THOUSANDS who participated in the rescue effort & cleanup who saw the plane parts, bodies, etc.

Incorrect. I never claimed that they mis-judged the flight path of the aircraft. I claim that they all unanimously placed it on the north side of the Citgo after we went out there to map the flight path of the plane. You claim they mis-judged it. And anyone with half a brain, a shred of decency, and intellectual honesty will watch the interviews and realize the plane is nowhere else but on the north side of that Citgo.


Every eyewitness in the area, including the ones in the linked videos, state that the plane hit the Pentagon,


That isn't true. You haven't interviewed every GENUINE witness in the area. The ones linked in the video are now aware of the implications of what they saw. The ones linked in the video were fooled. Sgt Brooks even told us that our movie was an "eye-opener" and that "anything was possible" when it came to him being fooled. Roosevelt Roberts saw the plane flying away and is now scared to talk. Dewitt Roseborough appears to have seen the flyover/away and seems to also be scared to talk about it. Dave Statter spoke with a witness or witnesses who said "the pilot tried to avert the building" and that the plane "went to the side of the building and not directly in".

You have to start being honest with yourself some time, Adam.


and there were THOUSANDS who participated in the rescue effort & cleanup who saw the plane parts, bodies, etc.


Thousands? You counted? You talked to them about what they believe now?

Well we were given a midnight tour of the Pentagon by a victim/rescue/recovery participant. His letter is displayed on our site.



One of the heroes seen in this pic:



An ACFD Captain and a camerman on scene both don't believe a 757 hit that building. Both were at the Air Florida crash. The fire captain had been on 5 plane crashes in his 29 years and does not believe a 757 hit.

Plane parts blown out onto the lawn and bodies from Pentagon victims are not proof of an impact.

Craig Ranke CIT,

Now I have been reading a lot of your research - and I feel it is quite professional - but some things you seem to be unfairly dismissing.

1) Cab Driver hit by a light pole claims he saw the aircraft go overhead I believe (didn't he?) - he did not mention seeing any explosion causing the pole to fall.

and

2) Wasn't an engine part clearly visible near the hole in the Pentagon - while it has been theorized that this was not a 757 engine part - surely you are not suggesting this had been planted there?

Please explain how you can reconcile these two know issues with your current theory?

I am still finding the Pilots for 9/11 truth theory that a drone missle was dropped right before the Pentagon flyby to be more compelling - because it could have clipped the poles AND left the engine part satisfying these two conditions.

And it seems like that could have happened quick enough to not be intelligently witnessed by even fairly close - but untrained - observers.

I am not trying to be irrationally skeptical here - I really would like to know your views on this.
