Eyewitnesses Contradict Pentagon 9/11 Story
BY SHEILA CASEY / RCFP
Two California men who call themselves the Citizen Investigation Team (CIT) have compiled impressive video evidence that the plane seen flying towards the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, 2001 could not have caused the death and damage at the Pentagon, nor the damage to five light poles outside the Pentagon.
Frustrated with the inability of 9/11 researchers to do anything other than speculate about what really happened that day, Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis decided to take matters into their own hands. They have repeatedly flown in from southern California, canvassed the area near the Pentagon on foot to find people who saw a plane just prior to the fireball, and then quizzed these eyewitnesses extensively on camera to establish exactly what they saw, when they saw it and where they saw it from.
Their research is summarized at their website: thepentacon.com, as well as in four DVDs containing interviews with 13 witnesses who attest that they saw a plane fly to the north of the Citgo gas station on Pentagon property, not south of the Citgo station as required by the official story.
CIT had each witness draw the flight path he witnessed on a map; the compilation from all the witnesses is shown below (see page 7). The curved lines clustered together toward the top of the map are from the witnesses; the single straight line angling up from the bottom edge of the map is the official flight path of the plane, as described by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
Taken together, the 13 witnesses deliver a devastating blow to the official story about the Pentagon attack. Five 40-foot, 247-pound light poles were knocked down that day. If the plane flew north of the Citgo station, it could not have knocked down those poles. The west side of the Pentagon was damaged as if it were hit by a plane heading north, with the zone of destruction angling north. If the plane flew to the north of the Citgo station before hitting the Pentagon, it would not have caused this kind of damage.

Good post! Star and flag for you.
I believe she is right on the money!
What is your opinion to what caused the explosion at the Pentagon and the small hole, where the supposed plane had hit? I never bought in to the OS to start with, because it lacks all the evidences.
Now Magazine has a reputation for presenting fresh perspectives on what is going on around us as well as for comprehensive coverage of the entertainment scene in Toronto.
Recently Rock Creek Free Press, an independant and somewhat radical newspaper published in the Washington, D.C. area published a story detailing the investigations of a group of young Americans who have interviewed and brought forward witnesses who contradict the official government version of what happened on 9/11, 2001 at the Pentagon.
The story in the Rock Creek Free Press is entitled "Eyewitnesses Contradict Pentagon 9/11 Story."
Here is a link to a .pdf file of the current issue of the newspaper, available in the Washington, D.C. area.
I hope you will read the story found in the linked .pdf file and consider reprinting it in Now.
The article indicates that at least part of the official 9/11 story, which after all was the initial impulse leading to the war in Iraq, may have been as fake as Bush's story about WMDs.
Thanks for your attention to this.

NIST’s Quiet Admission of Controlled Demolition
BY MATT SULLIVAN / RCFP
Has the government finally admitted, albeit
indirectly, that at least one of the buildings
destroyed on 9/11 was a controlled demolition?
The National Institute for Standards and
Technology (NIST), located in Gaithersburg
Maryland, is the government agency responsible
for investigating and reporting on the destruction
of the World Trade Center Buildings. In 2005
they published a very controversial report on
the destruction of the two WTC towers, but
the report did not address the third skyscraper
felled that day, WTC7. The report on WTC7
was delayed into the final months of the Bush
Most Americans are still not aware that a
third building fell on 9/11. World Trade Center
Building 7 collapsed at 5:20 in the evening,
seven hours after the destruction of the other
two buildings. It was a 47 story office tower
that occupied an entire city block and was
located across the street and over 100 yards
from the two towers. It collapsed completely,
in less than 7 seconds into a compact pile of
debris on it’s own footprint. The destruction of
WTC7 was witnessed by thousands of people
(not counting the live television audience) and
filmed from over a dozen different angles.
Critics of the government’s official story,
such as physicist Steven Jones, have pointed out
that the destruction of the buildings, especially
WTC7, have all the hallmarks of controlled
demolition including a period of freefall
acceleration. This point is crucial because
there is absolutely no way to explain a freefall

New Research Contradicts Pentagon 9-11 Story
published in the April, 2009 Rock Creek Free Press
CIT’s next move is to consolidate their research into a more concise format that edits all the lengthy interviews into a single 60 minute video called “National Security Alert.” The video will have no music or other artistic flourishes, which will make it suitable for informing government or media figures. Within the next 30 days, they expect to go live with a new website at CitizenInvestigationTeam.com
That site will have a link for free downloads of their new video, plus detailed information on how citizens can use the video to get action, including a series of steps to take if authority figures don’t respond.
Ranke and Marquis will be returning to the DC area to present a four hour conference in tandem with Pilots for 9/11 Truth. The free conference is sponsored by The Wisdom Fund and will be held at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) conference center in Arlington, from 10 am to 3 pm, on Saturday July 11.

Question? It has been my understanding that these devices were made only to breach a hole the size large enough only for a man to crawl or step through. The cring hole is much larger than that. I have a hard time believing that there was a RBWK made that was that large. Do you have some sort of info that makes you believe there was one large enough to create the cring hole? Not to mention I was also under the impression they use very very high pressure explosives (to make the sharp outline cutting through concrete) which in turn are extremely loud. I don't know I'm curious what made you come to this theory, to me it seems almost as crazy as the flyover.
