Maybe Michael Moore was right, Part 2
Questions Pentagon attacks

Filmmaker Michael Moore, in a post-"SiCKO" movie preview interview, talks with some of those folks from the 9-11 Truth Movement: ["Michael Moore: 9/11 Could Be Inside Job"]
. Interestingly, the interviewers actually get him to talk about stuff, after he refused to do it [Amy Goodman, a witness to the WTC7 demolition, also refused to talk with the interviewers, which was disappointing to see. She actually agrees to talk to them, but when they mention WTC7, she skirts away]. But then, Moore comes back and decides to talk to the filmmakers. On the Pentagon attacks, Moore says this:
"I've filmed there before down at the Pentagon--before 9/11--there's got to be at least 100 cameras, ringing that building, in the trees, everywhere.They've got that plane coming in with 100 angles. How come with haven't seen the straight--I'm not talking about stop-action photos, I'm talking about the video. I want to see the video; I want to see 100 videos that exist of this," Moore said.
This is amazing because I've been saying the same thing for years. I just can't believe that the best footage they have is this four frame stop motion film from one camera in the parking lot which doesn't show a plane at all. In addition, the FBI reportedly took video from area businesses, including a 7-11 and a Sheraton Hotel, all which has been reported in the mainstream press [so, this isn't some "conspiracy" theory. It did actually happen].
Here is another point, stressed in some of the "conspiracy" books about 9-11:
"Why don't they want us to see that plane coming into the building? Because, if you know anything about flying a plane, when you're going 500 miles per hour, if you're off by that much, you're in the river. So, they hit a building that's only 5 stories high...[unclear] that expertly. I believe that there will be answers in that video tape and we should demand that that tape is released."
Again, any pilot will tell you the same thing. There is no possible way an expert pilot can whip a 757 around at a 45 degree angle at 500 miles per hour ... never mind amateur pilots, with little to no experience, flying the jet into a five story building. It is just impossible. Here are the most realistic options: The hijackers were either super-trained pilots doing an extraordinary feat flying into the Pentagon; the plane was flown by remote control or automatic pilot to be perfectly executed, which brings up a whole slew of other questions; or it wasn't a 757 at all but it was a missile or smaller plane and they won't release the video because it will then lead to a whole slew of new questions.
Moore is correct: There needs to be a REAL investigation of the entire situation, without anyone connected to any administration or corporate interest. The investigation also needs to look at how a $500-plus-billion a year defense, intelligence, and military industrial complex, could allow our country's air defenses to be penetrated by a whole bunch of clowns with Exacto blades. And no, this has nothing to do with the so-called Peace Dividend which never really happened either. Anyone who looks at the country's budget and defense appropriations over the last 15-plus years knows that the money from closing American bases never went to social spending - it was transferred to overseas operations.
