I just wanted to share something I learned this past week that I found rather significant. I have heard of the theory in the past that a missile hit
the Pentagon, not a plane.
I live and work in Washington DC and frequently drive by the Pentagon. My boss and I were driving back from a meeting we had in Virginia this past
week, and we passed the Pentagon on the way back to the office. He brought up the story of his personal experience of the attack on the Pentagon on
He said he was driving his vehicle past the Pentagon when it was attacked. He was on the opposite side of the Pentagon that was hit. He said that the
windows of his vehicles expanded in and then back out and made popping noises, but did not shatter.
I asked him what his thoughts were immediately after it happened. He said he was scared to death, and swore that a missile had hit the Pentagon. He
said that the shockwave was so powerful and intense, that it caused the windows in his vehicle to expand and contract.
I just found it extremely interesting that his initial thoughts when the attack happened, was that a missile had exploded. Not a plane. He thought the
Pentagon was being attacked by missiles, so he immediately made a u-turn and drove back to his office to get away from that area.
Whats your thoughts on this guys? Could the explosion of jet fuel from a plane on the far side of the Pentagon cause the expanding and contracting of
his windows like that? Or would it take high power explosives to cause such a shockwave? He stated that his whole vehicle vibrated and shook.
Remember, he was on the far side of the Pentagon, at least 400 yards or so from the area of impact. And that shockwave had to travel thru or around
the Pentagon to reach his vehicle.
