54. I'd like to get down to the heart of the matter
I didn't claim in my OP that a plane didn't hit the Pentagon, rather I gave some evidence for and against that. You've provided some additional evidence for a plane hitting the Pentagon that I wasn't aware of. I don't have the technical expertise to weigh these arguments against each other (certainly not without a great deal of additional research), but in any event the argument for government complicity in the attacks doesn't require that it was a missile instead of a plane that hit the Pentagon.

And neither was Griffin claiming absolutely that a plane didn't hit the Pentagon, but he was pointing out lines of evidence that he felt suggested that it did, and he was saying that the 9/11 Commission should have addressed those issues.

I think that the crucial question is, as you point out in your last post, that after 9:03 (if not before that) it was an absolute no-brainer that Washington was a potential target, and yet it was not until 26 minutes later that the first plane was scrambled to defend our capital.

My OP also contains a good amount of other information on the government's response to this threat, what appeared to be a 9/11 Commission coverup of the military's failure to respond, etc.

I'm not sure what your position is on this. Are you saying that this indicates just incompetence on the part of our military, or do you agree that it indicates government complicity?
