"The question should be; if Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, then where is it? And keep in mind, if we do find someone, a group, an agency, that is involved in the obfuscation, distraction, distortion, or coverup of any of the information of any of the events of September 11th, does that not indicate possible involvement and even guilt in the event of September 11th?"
Also include the fact that the antenna sat on a 'hat truss' assembly,
( a matrix of steel beams angled and tied together) yet managed to fall FIRST. Nobody has been able to explain how the antenna fell before
Musta been some of those explosions cutting the core and hat truss for
that to happen.
Nice screen shots by the way.
6.14.2 Results of Global Analysis of WTC 1
After the aircraft impact, gravity loads that were previously carried by severed columns were redistributed to other columns. The north wall lost about 7 percent of its loads after impact. Most of the load was transferred by the hat truss, and the rest was redistributed to the adjacent exterior walls by spandrels. Due to the impact damage and the tilting of the building to the north after impact, the south wall also lost gravity load, and about 7 percent was transferred by the hat truss. As a result, the east and west walls and the core gained the redistributed loads through the hat truss.
Structural steel expands when heated. In the early stages of the fire, structural temperatures in the core rose, and the resulting thermal expansion of the core was greater than the thermal expansion of the (cooler) exterior walls. About 20 min. after the aircraft impact, the difference in the thermal expansion between the core and exterior walls, which was resisted by the hat truss, caused the core column loads to increase. As the fires continued to heat the core areas without insulation, the columns were thermally weakened and shortened and began to transfer their loads to the exterior walls through the hat truss until the south wall started to bow inward. At about 100 min, approximately 20 percent of the core loads were transferred by the hat truss to the exterior walls due to thermal weakening of the core; the north and south walls each gained about 10 percent more loads, and the east and west walls each gained about 25 percent higher loads. Since the hat truss outriggers to the east and west walls were stiffer than the outriggers to the north and south walls, they transferred more loads to the east and west exterior walls.
The inward bowing of the south wall caused failure of exterior column splices and spandrels, and these columns became unstable. The instability spread horizontally across the entire south face. The south wall, now unable to bear its gravity loads, redistributed these loads to the thermally weakened core through the hat truss and to the east and west walls through the spandrels. The building section above the impact zone began tilting to the south as the columns on the east and west walls rapidly became unable to carry the increased loads. This further increased the gravity loads on the core columns. Once the upper building section began to move downwards, the weakened structure in the impact and fire zone was not able to absorb the tremendous energy of the falling building section and global collapse ensued.
Well looK here.... Seems someone did explain how the hat truss failed - bringing down the antenna structure on top of it Of course since doesnt play into your conspiracy fantasy probably find some facile excuse to ignore it...

S+F - Good find! I'm quite suprised someone hadn't noticed that before though. There could well be other things that reinforce that the OS is official crap.

Whether you like it or not, there's a portion of september clues that proves 100% without a shadow of a doubt that live video footage was being manipulated.
It's the famous "perfect zoom" shot. The chopped has a wide shot of the skyline, it suddenly zooms it, then a couple seconds later it does a final zoom. Within a second, the plane enters the screen and smashes into the building.
So whats the problem?
Well the problem is, only a few seconds exist between when the camera is completely zoomed out, to when the camera is completely zoomed in.
While the camera is zoomed out there is NO PLANE IN THE SKY! Thus, in the few seconds it takes to make a couple well timed 'zooms', there is no way a plane could have "snuck up" on the shot. To anyone who sees the video has no choice but to realize that it's fraudulent.
I'll embed the clip later when I find it.

Trying to show that the US Government *could* have done something, isn't the same as showing that they did it.
