Praise for Citizen Investigation Team (CIT) and the video National Security Alert

     "It’s no exaggeration to state that the findings of the Citizen Investigation Team (CIT) concerning what really happened at the Pentagon on 9/11 are reliable, undeniable, conclusive and of immense historic significance. The evidence now shows, well past reasonable doubt, what happened. It was detonation of explosives within the building, timed to coincide with a flyover by a large jet plane, thus producing the clever illusion that flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, heart of the official 9/11 Pentagon lie. Primary credit for dispelling this illusion must go to CIT. Team members, with only truth-seeking as their motive and with few resources, succeeded in finding 13 eye witnesses whom they interviewed fairly and transparently. The heavy convergence of honest reports by these eye witnesses, and other compelling evidence, can be seen in CIT’s highly revealing DVD “National Security Alert.” The evidence fails entirely to support the official story’s alleged flight path of alleged flight 77. The evidence does, on the all-important other hand, support a flyover flight path." [Click here to read more and view video of full endorsement]

     "A conventional fixed wing aircraft, 757 or otherwise, cannot maneuver from north of the former Citgo gas station to cause the physical damage to the light poles, generator trailer, or the Pentagon without structural failure of the airframe itself. The maneuver would require G forces exceeding aircraft capabilities and that of the human body. Physics and math do not lie. If you accept the placement of the plane as independently and unanimously reported by the witnesses presented in CIT's video National Security Alert, science proves that it did not cause the physical damage at the Pentagon on 9/11/2001."

     "Aldo Marquis and Craig Ranke are often quick to point out that they are ordinary citizens who are not investigative journalists by trade. Be that as it may, what these citizen investigators have done is true investigative journalism, and what they have accomplished is anything but ordinary. Their video National Security Alert does not present conjecture.  It presents carefully documented eyewitness evidence which establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that American Flt. 77 did not fly into the Pentagon on 9/11.  Citizen Investigation Team’s landmark research joins the scholarly work of Harrit, Jones, et al. in destroying the widely-held myth that 9/11 was masterminded by foreign terrorists. Government and media figures who dare ignore evidence this conclusive do so at their own peril, and the peril of us all. 9/11 is a stain upon our honor as a nation and it is imperative that justice is done."

     "The entire body of work from CIT is a testament to the tremendous power of dedicated citizen journalists to uncover the truth behind a government story.  Using thousands of dollars of their own money and thousands of hours of unpaid time, Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis have performed a significant public service.  They have created a body of work that definitively shows the government story about the Pentagon to be a lie."

     “Citizen Investigation Team have presented a reasoned, and methodical look at witness testimony the day the Pentagon was attacked on Sept. 11th. As stated in their presentation National Security Alert, it behooves every citizen of conscience to question the official story after viewing CIT's labors toward seeking the truth of what happened that day in 2001.”

Edward Asner, Emmy Award Winning Actor
Former President of the Screen Actors Guild

     “This new film by CIT is far more professionally produced than their previous efforts. It is also more convincing, given the addition of more witnesses, so that they now have a total of 13 witnesses reporting that the actual flight path of the plane that approached the Pentagon was drastically different from the official flight path (which would have been needed if the plane was to knock over the felled light poles and to strike the Pentagon at the designated spot and angle). This part of the film's thesis is now established beyond a reasonable doubt. The film does not establish its related claim---that the airliner pulled up and flew over the Pentagon---as clearly, but it does make a good case for it. One of the film's most valuable parts is a scene in which cab driver Lloyde England, who otherwise gamely tried to maintain the truth of his testimony supporting the official story, admitted that the Pentagon operation had been planned by powerful people with lots of money. I am pleased to be able to recommend this important film with enthusiasm."

     "I support the work of the Citizen Investigation Team. They have uncovered an important body of evidence proving that the official version of the attack on the Pentagon is false, and that the attack must have been a deceptive military operation, not the kamakaze crash of a hijacked commercial jet. I urge everyone to watch their video National Security Alert and then help bring this information to the attention of the media and elected officials."

     I strongly recommend National Security Alert to everyone concerned about the veracity of the attacks on 9/11/2001. Citizen Investigation Team has assembled the most compelling documentary evidence I have viewed to undermine the official story regarding the attack on the Pentagon. The DVD offers no theorizing or speculation; only corroborated eyewitness evidence contradicting the official flight data to support an overwhelming argument that a plane did not slam into the Pentagon on 9/11. If you have time for only one video about the Pentagon, National Security Alert needs to be your choice."

     "Citizen Investigation Team did an outstanding job of finding witnesses and putting the facts together.  It's the best reporting I've seen in a long, long time.  This video is a must see for every citizen in our country."

Commander James R. Compton, III

     "The Pentagon on 9/11 is still a big mystery. We've had a lot of theories, and we've had the enervating withholding of video evidence by the Pentagon. But until now, no one has tried to assemble real forensic evidence, and a collection of eyewitnesses, in order to build a credible explanation for what might have happened. Based on actual on-the-ground reporting, Citizen Investigation Team has produced a startling body of new evidence.  They present interviews with Pentagon police officers at the former Citgo gas station, groundskeepers at Arlington National Cemetery, and several others. These eyewitnesses consistently point to a flight path for the plane that day that is directly at odds with the official story. If these independently corroborated witness accounts are accurate, then the plane did not hit the light-poles, and everything we thought we knew about the Pentagon is wrong.   Their pioneering work deserves more serious attention from the government and media, both of whom would prefer we forget our need for justice."

     "I think the work of Citizen Investigation Team is among the most critical that has ever been done with regard to establishing clearly the fact that the official explanation for the attack on 9/11 is false. Going to the primary sources....now that's what I call REAL journalism."

     "I was initially skeptical of CIT's findings. But after closer review of the numerous interviews contained in their documentaries, a strong case has been made for an approach trajectory for the plane said to be American Airlines Flight 77 that is hundreds of feet from the official trajectory. The on-scene physical evidence attributed to the official trajectory is incompatible with the trajectory repeatedly described by the witnesses presented and is arguably suspect. Aircraft speeds described in the interviews are also much lower than those alleged by official sources. CIT's documentaries provide the viewer with the transparency and real-time detail regarding events at the Pentagon on 9/11, not provided by accounts offered by the federal government or major media."

Aidan Monaghan

     "I watched your video about the Pentagon (National Security Alert). Oh, my God. It made me shake and almost cry. I have known for awhile that 9/11 was undoubtedly an inside job, but this is the best evidence yet - indisputable in my mind. I had been on the edge of being involved in the 9/11 Truth Movement, and now, after seeing your video, I am on board completely and plan to devote every non-working hour of my life to bringing about the truth. It's scary. I'm scared about where this all will lead, but I can't help but act. I can't thank you all enough for having done the investigation that you have done. May the truth prevail."

Chris Meagher
Concerned citizen

     "I love the CIT video National Security Alert. It's clear that Flight 77 never made it near the Pentagon. The plane that flew over the Pentagon, on a trajectory just north of the gas station was not a commercial airliner. It's refreshing to see citizens investigating for themselves, and doing a darn good job at it. I highly recommend watching National Security Alert."

     "Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis and/or whomever is responsible for the NSA-sensitive info doc:  You guys are f***ing heros. thank you for that video, which was brilliantly done. and special thanks to the guy who went out and interviewed all the witnesses and the cabbie - what a great guy, humble, stuck to the facts, wasn't emotional or sensational, just great.  I think it is the best doc, case, evidence I've seen so far and I've seen a lot. It may sound stupid, but it's people like you that give us (thinking/concerned people) hope. I put you in the same category with my personal heros, Bach, Tolstoy, Jung, Dostoevsky, Ghandi, Tank-man, Ron Paul, etc.  You guys deserve the Nobel peace prize, at least the one in the parallel universe that actually means something. History will remember you."

     "Concerning the work of Citizen Investigation Team. Over a period of six months , I have made relentless attempts to ask questions that would uncover their biasing of witnesses, cherry picking witnesses, and other practices not uncommon; especially not in highly politicized matters. I have viewed “all” their video and audio material, read “all” they have published so far, checked and double checked “all” witness testimony to the best of my ability, and have undertaken all possible attempts to find anything that could discredit their work. Their methodology and integrity is as flawless as one could expect. Their unanswered questions are imminent and demand answers. In conclusion of this I fully and wholeheartedly endorse their work."

     "The exhaustive effort by Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis of Citizen Investigation Team to contact, record, document, and analyze numerous first-hand eyewitness accounts of the actual flight path of the airliner at the Pentagon on 9/11 has been long overdue, but worth waiting for.  The evidence they have uncovered and compiled in their DVD "National Security Alert" deserves serious attention - particularly in light of what we now know about the explosive  destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises that day."

Richard Gage, AIA, Architect

     “Citizen Investigation Team has produced an important documentary video that, using numerous independent witness accounts, successfully rebuts the official account of Flight 77’s flight path on 9/11 as it approached the Pentagon. It constitutes a further compelling reason for this country to investigate properly, for the first time, the full story of what happened on that day."
