Those small pieces do not a jet engine make. They would have left entrance wounds in the side of the building in direct relation to their location on the plane. None were present.
When the shuttle Challenger exploded in a hydrogen and oxygen fireball, the pressure cabin and airlock, mostly titanium, survived to fall into the sea largely intact.
But the Pentagon was not struck by a large airliner on 9.11.
I understand how iron and steel and other metals behave in different environments. You don't have to be a certified metallurgist to understand the basics of this stuff.
Portions of this aircraft not only exploded in a fireball, but traveled through the structure, down an elevator shaft and started fire on several other levels.
One of the engines was embedded in the building itself.
Now, those B-25 engines had cast iron blocks that survived the crash.
The jet engines that are on a Boeing 757/767 airliner are designed to withstand enormous heat and pressures. They do not simply vanish nor would they bounce off the side of any building.
The side of the Pentagon was notably absent any scaring from the wings or those two huge jet engines ...
...that had, among other things, cast iron, cast steel, tungsten and titanium in their construction.
They would have by force alone penetrated the side of that building even if the wings did not.
You just cannot have two huge turbo jet propulsion systems disintegrate.
Even an atomic blast could not vaporize these things into nothing.
They might be fused into unrecognizable parts, but the material they were made of would survive in one shape or another.
This is all very basic stuff.

I understand that there must be a reason for the deception... maybe to save our nation. But the Pentagon was not struck by a large airliner on 9.11.

In the original video of the hole the pentagon didn't collapse right away..didn't even look like it was going to either.
Anyway in the original video there is only a small hole about 16 ft..confirmed by Bob Pugh like it shows here.

(That is said in dripping sarsam, BTW...as the great bard wrote it....)....
....for, verily, it is YOU who writeth:
.... you show these detailed pictures of itty bitty pieces of aircraft, being re-assembled for the Swiss air MD-11. Good right? Answer all us Truthers this: Why weren't all the itty bitty bits of jet liners from all 4 9/11 jet evaporation sites, collected and kept for the same kind of re-assembly? Teacher, teach me. Help me, help you. You jump, I jump...
Stop, think, research and LEARN!!!
WHY does the NTSB (in the USA) or any other investigating agency "investigate" an a transportation accident???
Do I have to spoon feed that answer to you? Or, will you try to improve your knowledge, and your lot in life, and learn by looking it up for yourself??
