Each USAR task force consists of 68 persons organized into search, rescue, medical, and technical teams. Each task force is further divided into four six-person rescue squads; two 2-person technical search squads; four canine search teams; two medical squads; and specialists in heavy equipment, logistics, communications, structural engineering, technical information, and hazardous materials response. Each position on the USAR task force is duplicated to allow round-the-clock operations. This systematic approach, which worked so well at other disasters, proved itself once again at the Pentagon.
Naturally, USAR operations were preceded by standard "fireground" primary and secondary searches of all floors of the affected areas of the building that were accessible during the fire attack operations. These searches were conducted diligently by firefighters from the local agencies during the intense firefighting operation that had taken place during the first 12 to18 hours of the incident. Yet, because of the magnitude of the disaster and the limitations imposed by the manner in which the aircraft went through the building, thousands of square feet of space in the fire-affected areas of all five floors remained chest-high in incinerated debris. This required a third round of thorough searching by hand, to ensure that no bodies (or parts of bodies) were left behind or would end up in dump trucks during Stage 5.
Once the debris was spread out, canine search teams would search for any scent indicating human remains. Then search team members conducted a physical search for remains, crawling and walking over all the debris. Finally, after being searched three or more times, the debris was loaded into trucks with skip loaders and taken to one of the Pentagon parking lots to be further combed for human remains and evidence by the FBI, ATF, military units, and Arlington Police Department. This process continued until the entire collapse zone had been dismantled and all victims were located and removed.
also dereks doesn't have to provide proof he is not the one making claims. he is asking the people that are making claims for their evidence to back up their claims. could he go about it better? sure he could. But even i have to admit that its getting old when people make claims in a thread and show no evidence to back up their claims to refute the OS.

Get hold of copy of book FIREFIGHT by Patrick Creed & Rich Newman
Authors interviewed 150 people including many firemen on the scene at Pentagon. Describe finding of bodies
and recovery of the remains
Here are some photos of bodies being recovered in Pentagon - evidence at Moussaoui Trial

Rather than just saying "no proof at all" how about backing that up with facts?
