During the Civil War, a settlement known as Freedman’s Village sprung up on Robert E. Lee’s former estate, as escaped slaves made their way to the non-Union held territory. After the war these settlements became communities in an area known as Hell's Bottom. When planners decided where they wanted to construct the Pentagon, it was first decided to be built East of Arlington Cemetery. However, they were told specifically they must build it on Hell's Bottom, which later became known as East Arlington
In an aerial view of Washington D.C. those with keen eyes are able to see certain geometric shapes and designs (which I won't get into here). Washington, D.C. is a very carefully planned city. In 1791, President Washington commissioned Pierre (Peter) Charles L'Enfant, a French-born architect and city planner, to design the new capital. Some may call it a "conspiracy theory", and some may call it a coincidence, but Pierre (along with George Washington) was a high-ranking Freemason. This is reflected in the architecture of Washington D.C. The Washington monument itself, is actually an obelisk, and was consecrated in a Masonic Ritual. The reason this is important is because President Roosevelt, was also a high-ranking Freemason, who chose the location of where the Pentagon would be built. The point of the star that forms the Pentagram, points directly at the White House
Although it may seem insignificant, I think it is very interesting that the Pentagon's courtyard is known as Ground Zero. After the 9/11 "terrorist" attacks, President Bush first used the word Ground Zero to describe the epicenter of the attacks at the Twin Towers. This is interesting, because Ground Zero is a term used to describe the point closest to the earth where a detonation takes place.
On September 11, 2001 America was attacked. The Twin Towers, and the Pentagon were hit by airplanes. American Airlines Flight 77, smashed into the East Side of the Pentagon. Interestingly, this side of the Pentagon was the last side that was nearing completion of renovation. 60 years prior to the attacks, on September 11, 1941; construction began on the Pentagon
The man who was officially in charge of the project at the Pentagon was Brigadier General Somervell. However, his subordinate Leslie Groves was commissioned to oversee day-to-day construction and operations. He was the key factor in making sure the Pentagon was constructed in the record time that it was built in. However, Leslie Groves was no ordinary man. He was also the Man in Charge of the Manhattan Project. He held all the Top-Secret Security Clearances involved in the Project, that coincidentally or not, was admittedly thought up at the Bohemian Grove meeting in 1942.

Although it may seem insignificant, I think it is very interesting that the Pentagon's courtyard is known as Ground Zero.
The Pentagon includes a five-acre (20,000 m2) central plaza, which is shaped like a pentagon and informally known as "ground zero," a nickname originating during the Cold War and based on the presumption that the Soviet Union would target one or more nuclear missiles at this central location in the outbreak of a nuclear war.

I couldn't help but to add a few facts myself.
The Pentagon is so huge that it’s been assigned six different zip codes.
It is shaped like a pentagon because of where the roads were positioned that surrounded the original building site.
The Pentagon is the largest office building in the world, based on floor space alone.
There are certainly a Ton of secrets that we will never know about the Pentagon, but what we do know is enough to make you wonder.

No 2 on the list Im having trouble with. Just looked at the Pentagon on Google Earth, and Im struggling to see a Pentagram. I can make out 1 point of the star definitely, 2 at a push. Do you have any links or anything to show an over-layed pentagram image that we're supposed to be able to see?
Thanks for the thread OP.
