>> Weren't there photographs of
plane parts taken inside and outside of the Pentagon on 9/11 and shortly
thereafter? If so, don't these photographs prove
that Flight 77 hit the building?|
This is pretty much the extent of the semi-recognizable pieces photographed inside and outside:
Please remember that the suspiciously small amount of plane debris was one of the reasons that many people were initially skeptical as to whether or not a plane really hit the Pentagon in the first place.
None of the photographed parts have been positively identified as belonging to “Flight 77” or tail #N644AA via the matching of serial numbers, and there has been no attempt to reconstruct the plane as is usually the protocol during aircraft crash investigations.
Furthermore, the mere presence of these pieces of debris does not prove a plane hit. Once again the suspect in question had complete control of the area, which had been under “renovation” for years. Parts photographed inside could have easily been placed there before or after the event. Parts photographed on the outside lawn could also have been easily planted, either just before the event or during the chaos that ensued just after the explosion. Minutes after the attack there was a panicked evacuation for fear of another plane coming in.
This evacuation was discussed by multiple first responders, such as Lt. Robert Medairos, the Arlington County Police Department's "first incident commander at the scene", and Eileen Murphy, who was Head Nurse of the Minor Surgery Clinic at the DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic, and who was inside the Pentagon at the time of the explosion (alleged impact). You can view and read their testimony here.
In fact, first-responder Derek Spector of the Arlington County Fire Department reported that there were multiple evacuations.
Speaking at a press conference two days after 9/11, where he was introduced
by Arlington County Fire Chief Ed Plaugher as "Emergency Medical
Technician Derek Spector" who was "one of the first arriving company
officers", Spector said:
On September 11, 2010, 9 years after the attack,
the Nataional Geographic Channel (aka Nat Geo) aired a special which
contained never-before-seen footage documenting the evacuation(s).
