From David Chandler and Jonathan Cole:
911speakout.org...

The CIT videos don’t qualify as scientific studies. Their witnesses are not representative of the overall eyewitness pool, the witnesses accounts are far from contemporaneous with the events, and the conversational style of the interviews frequently leads the witnesses.

Who knows what conversations preceded the videotaped interviews to either shape or filter the testimonies? The “researchers” ignore the fact that none of their witnesses directly confirms their primary hypothesis: a Pentagon flyover. Some of the witnesses contradict themselves, but this does not count against their credibility. Furthermore, there is no mention of the voluminous eyewitness testimony that supports the conventional path in line with the path of destruction.

Rather than subject their work to peer review, even internal peer review within the 9/11 Truth Movement, they simply disparage any who take issue with their methods or their results, and instead rely on a list of questionable endorsements. They posted a literal “enemies list” on the internet in which they attacked the character of those who disagree with them. [Ed. Note: we are not yet on that list, but after posting this essay we will surely qualify.]

CIT has even gone so far as to disparage their own witnesses, accusing the driver of the taxi that was hit by a light pole of being a co-conspirator with the perpetrators of the crime. CIT has gone out of its way to make themselves a highly divisive issue in the 9/11 Truth movement. The “Flyover theory” had recent success in getting main stream media coverage on the Jesse Ventura “Conspiracy Theory” show.

Whether CIT in fact represents an orchestrated attempt to splinter the 9/11 Truth Movement or not, it is having a splintering effect. “Divide and Conquer” has a long history, going back to Caesar in the Gallic Wars, and Alexander the Great before him. CIT is attempting to become the public face of the 9/11 Truth Movement. If it succeeds, the 9/11 Truth Movement will be seen as vicious, mean spirited, crazy, and ultimately discredited.

Well cant we just look at the black box data for the flight path? Or is that one lost too.

There is heaps of photographic evidence that shows it was not a plane that went into the pentagon. I have examined some of it at www.kwakakev.com... I consider this enough to make the point, but there is a lot more including photos of aircraft fuselage parts that go around corners of the building and no shattered aircraft debris around the point of impact.

As for the taxi driver with the fallen pole, how could such a pole falling only smash a window but leave the rest of the car undamaged? There are basic physical laws that can be applied to disprove the official story when careful examination of the photos available is used. The witness statements can help build a case, but with so much variation and conflicts it will not be a large part of the available solid evidence, it will take a large amount of peer review to sift through all the statements and work out the facts in conjunction with the other available evidence.

It is great to see the deniers retreating into their last bastion of contempt as the truthers circle the gates. The pressure is still continuing to build.

I am no expert on flight data recorders but I understand that, in 2001 at least, the lat/long positions recorded derived from the aircraft's IRS system which was subject to some drift and cannot be taken as gospel for an exact position within a matter of feet.

In addition, the final few seconds recorded in AA 77's FDR consists of incomplete data. You might be interested in this article about the final seconds which has been more recently de-coded than the rest. You will note that this data gives a final radio altitude for AA 77 of 4' accompanied by off the scale decelaration which I would suggest can only mean it crashed into the Pentagon :-
