Judicial Watch to Obtain September 11 Pentagon Video at 1 p.m. Today

Judicial Watch to Obtain September 11 Pentagon Video at 1 p.m. Today

Department of Defense Responds to Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act Request and Related Lawsuit

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that Department of Defense will release a videotape to Judicial Watch at 1:00 p.m. this afternoon that allegedly shows American Airlines Flight 77 striking the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The Department of Defense is releasing the videotape in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act request and related lawsuit.

This is in response to your December 14, 2004 Freedom of Information Act Request, FOIA appeal of March 27, 2005, and complaint filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, wrote William Kammer, Chief of the Department of Defense, Office of Freedom of Information. Now that the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui is over, we are able to complete your request and provide the video

Judicial Watch originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December 15, 2004, seeking all records pertaining to September 11, 2001 camera recordings of the Pentagon attack from the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation. The Department of Defense admitted in a January 26, 2005 letter that it possessed a videotape responsive to Judicial Watchs request. However, the Pentagon refused to release the videotape because it was, part of an ongoing investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui. Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on February 22, 2006 arguing that there was no legal basis for the Defense Departments refusal to release the tape.

We fought hard to obtain this video because we felt that it was very important to complete the public record with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. Finally, we hope that this video will put to rest the conspiracy theories involving American Airlines Flight 77. As always, our prayers remain with all those who suffered as a result of those murderous attacks.

Here are some screen captures and enlargements of the video...
I did a screen capture of the 'object' from the new video
prior to its impact with the Pentagon. I enlarged the image
of the object. I put a red box around the object in question.
The first is the original sized image. Scroll down to the enlarged
image.

148. How Flight 77 Hitting The Pentagon Would Really Look?
the article here shows a doctored .gif wondering if somthing like this was relaesed, would it be swallowed hook, line and sinker?
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/may2006/170506real...

snip:
Is this what Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon would really look like from nearby security cameras instead of the nondescript blur footage we have been subject to?

This is obviously a crude collection of doctored frames but if the government had released something similar yesterday would you have believed it? Many would.

Wary therefore we are of the potential for the government to eventually release clear footage of the impact from the 84 other cameras that were dotted around the Pentagon and would have easily documented the event to debunk 9/11 skeptics. more..

7. That...
they couldn't release the video until the trial was over. I wonder how long this has been the excuse. Since 9/11/01? Think about it. After watching Star Wars, The Matrix, etc., how difficult with their resources would it be. Another thing, if they are going to release the tape from the Pentagon camera, why not release the tapes from the gas station and the hotel across the freeway?
Even if it turns out to be authentic, I still say Bush and company have a lot to answer for. Their inaction prior to and after 9/l1 deserves investigation, if for no other reason, but for the incomparable incompetence displayed that day. I truly believe if someone else was in charge, someone with a brain of their own, and a desire to do the best thing for America and it's citizens, this tragedy would not have happened, or at the least, some lives could have been saved. MIHOP, LIHOP, or just INCOMPETENCE, they should have to answer. Thanks.

29. "MIHOP, LIHOP, or just INCOMPETENCE, they should have to answer"
It is now known that Bush spied on Americans prior to 9/11. He had warnings about Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. In the traditional meeting between the out-going and in-coming presidents, Clinton told Bush that Osama and AQ terrorism were America's number on security concern. It was also known that OBL and AQ was responsible for the USS Cole attack.

So why in the Hell didn't Bush stop 9/11? With the NSA of more than 38,000 employees and a budget of billions, Bush couldn't intercept messages and stop a terrorist attack involving 20 terrorists and 4 airliners? Particularly since he had been warned numerous times about OBL/AQ? What the Hell was he doing? He was spying on millions of Americans, yet he couldn't zero in on this massive plot to attack the US, even though he had a "heads up" about who he should be spying on?

This information plus what he did (or didn't do) when told by Andy Card about the attacks, his order to fly all of OBL's relatives out of the US when all other commercial craft was grounded, his refusal to hold Saudi Arabia responsible even though 75% of the attackers were from SA, his desire to invade Iraq, the failure to capture OBL at Torra Borra, etc. only confirms for me that Bush is up to his ears in crimes against the American people and the world's people so terrible that treason looks relatively mild in comparison.

He's beyond impeachment: he needs to be sent to The Hague to stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity after standing trial here in America for treason.

4. it will be interesting to see how this video correlates with existing
video and photos.

i just dont see how it can make sense.

A) the hole in the pentagon was too small
B) the wreckage should have been visible. where did it all go?

i am fully expecting some creation of the pentagon video department. but we will see.

9. I would agree.
It is just too damn easy to edit video these days. In light of the 5 year delay in the release of their direct video evidence, and considering the ethics of these swine, it is no intellectual stretch to be suspicious in extremis.

Especially about something this big and so full of implications.

15. What got me about the plane in the Pentagon was the fact that
this plane was supposedly going 500%+ mph. Witnesses claimed it flew over and then started a 360 degree turn. This amateur pilot did the turn so perfect, that when he flew the plane into the Pentagon, he was perfectly parallel horizontally. The plane had flown dead over trees (no damage), light posts (no damage) and then horizontally crashes into the Pentagon not even using any landing gear.

Perfect. Too perfect.

Edited on Tue May-16-06 12:35 PM by No DUplicitous DUpe
and then...Bullseye! really, really, hard to believe (and I tried it on the flight sim, missed the whole building the first few times, ripped the wings off a few times, I did hit the edge of the building, one time, and I have 200 more hours (in a Cessna) than Hanjour had.

Lets us see the tape, please.

61. Intact tail section violates laws of physics significantly.
Burden of proof is on him, i.e. produce photographs.

Extraordinary claims - plane tail decelerates instantaniously and more or less intact, at the same time the front of the plane decelerates - require extraordinary proof.

105. You know... I'm not a big conspiracy nut but...
I'm not really into the whole conspiracy thing. I usually do not buy most the crap people put out there. However, there are a lot of things about 9/11 that make you wonder. I don't buy most the beliefs about Bush and his buddies being the ones behind it all. If there was a conspiracy I tend to find it more believable that it was done by a foreign government, perhaps Israel... But then again I don't know and I wouldn't ever say that it was for sure a conspiracy or that it wasn't.... Too hard to say for sure... kind of like the existence of some sort of God.

What an incredible coincidence!

That the Bushes and the Bin Ladens were both poised to make billions from US military action? Without September 11, how could Bush have been able to start this war?

This is just the beginning!

33. 9/11 Pentagon video goes public for first time
Edited on Tue May-16-06 12:55 PM by underpants
http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/05/16/pentagon.video/index.h...

Watchdog group says release will end 'conspiracy theories'

Tuesday, May 16, 2006; Posted: 1:33 p.m. EDT (17:33 GMT)

A security camera outside the Pentagon captured this image on September 11, 2001.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Video showing a plane crashing into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, will be released publicly for the first time on Tuesday, a judicial watchdog said.

The Department of Defense will hand over tapes showing American Airlines Flight 77 striking its headquarters outside Washington to Judicial Watch, a public interest group that requested the video, the group said.

The video will be available on the group's Web site after it receives the tape at 1 p.m., according to a news release from Judicial Watch.


"Finally, we hope that this video will put to rest the conspiracy theories involving American Airlines Flight 77. As always, our prayers remain with all those who suffered as a result of those murderous attacks."

Judicial Watch is "a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law," according to its Web site.

This is what happens when you let an AWOL preppy cheerleader -- and Five Deferments Cheney -- steal elections and then pretend to be "commander in chief"

46. I think the one on Faux is the new one..
It's just the old security cam video we've all seen, but it runs longer. There is no plane visible in the video, just a blur on the first frame of what they say is the nose of a jetliner about 2 feet off the ground. Remember the Pentagon lawn was completely undisturbed.

and
mms://wm.world.mii-streaming.net/media/defense/flight77/fl77-2_11094237.WMV

and I don't see a plane, clearly or otherwise. Where's this commercial airliner I'm supposed to be able to "clearly" see?

With the wildest stretch of my imagination can I see, maybe, a cessna there. Looks more like a missile to me. Certainly not a 747 or any other large, commercial airliner.

to prevent it from crashing even after the US gov't knew we were under attack? IIRC, the Pentagon plane was the last to crash.

In addition to cameras, there are also missiles mounted on the periphery of the Pentagon. So, evidently nobody was watching the store in the building that houses our nation's defense department that day, I guess. :eyes:

SAM's big enough to shoot down large or high-flying aircraft are themselves quite large. Stingers, etc, are completely worthless for this.

There are no missile launchers on the exterior of the Pentagon, period. There are no radars and no launch cells.

is an old previously released tape. It's been around for a few years now. It is not a true video, it is clips of still cameras run in sequence and from a side angle, not the direction the plane came from.

60. I've never bought into LIHOP or MIHOP but I find this VERY INTERESTING
First- I do believe that 9/11 was the result of a small group of fanatics, actually two. The ones supposedly on our side were so fanatical that they were completely negligent and incompetent

Second-Michael Moore has a good point about how a relatively few flying lessons is not enough to prepare someone to fly a 50 foot high plane going 500 miles an hour (or whatever it is) into a 4 story tall building. There had to be a pro involved.

Lastly-the timing of this and this story itself is going to make a few people revisit what happened that day and how (with W's numbers in the crapper) how it was spun to them then and how it still is...basically how W takes credit for it (read that twice). Also those who have doubts or gets some swirling in their head from this video will realize that they aren't the only ones and that it is okay to doubt the spin they have been fed. I liken it to Howard Dean being the first to stand up nationally and say YES it is okay to question the pResident....many people started to do so publicly in short order.

Though not a DUer, I trust his judgement completely (or he wouldn't be my attorney).
The first thing he said to me once we were able to get in touch (I live in lower Manhattan--I had no phone service for a while after 9/11) was ''Karen, I can swear there was no plane!"

He was actually quite lucky to be in DC on 9/11 -- his office was in the WTC.

153. "All evidence" would be what, exactly? Barbara Olson's fictional
call to Ted?
"Witnesses" just walking around the Pentagon grounds, but never once allowed to speak to the press, i.e., the public? Did they testify to Congress, even?
The wing-span's being too large for the resultant hole?
The complete absence of debris (metal, human, clothing, etc.)outside the point of impact, i.e., an OUTSIDE wall?

When Pan Am 103 exploded over and crashed onto Lockerbie, the debris was wide-spread and multifarious in kind. The cockpit, however, remained intact even upon impact.

Surely the Pentagon "crash" was not more severe in nature.

64. How in the HELL would that footage hurt/help the Moussaoui investigation?
Supposedly the DoD held onto the tape because it was "part of an ongoing investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui".

The footage is useless for investigators. If they wanted to use it to prove that an aircraft hit the Pentagon, they would have failed.

Now that Zacarias Moussaoui's trial is over they need to release ALL of the confiscated video.

76. It's difficult to tell from the film what hit -
I have to say that after viewing the film, it's darn difficult to tell what hit the building. All you can see is a silvery streak and then a fireball. I hope that at some point someone will be able to take the frames and enlarge the images. I realize that at the speed the plane was alleged to have been going, a streak is about all you'd get, so it would be interesting to see if going frame by frame more detail. While not a MIHOP person, I do subscribe to LIHOP, but still, that film truly doesn't answer any questions that I can see.

doesn't look like it was touched by anything? :shrug:

95. Not strictly true...
...there are photos taken by the Arlington County Fire Dept that show some damage. These are the best photos of the site that I have seen. Why they haven't been circulated I don't know. I saw them as they were briefly housed in the Arlington Library at the Virginia Room there. I believe they are now in county archives but am not sure.

133. There are much better photos than those ones...
...and you just answered your own question to your post about the size of the hole if you look at the second photograph. That hole doesn't look so big in that photo because it fails to adequately depict the size of the building. Drive or walk by it and you see how large the building is so the hole isn't as "small" as it seems. And what do some people think the Pentagon is made out of anyway? Eggshells? I don't see people making a big fuss out of the fact that the planes that hit the twin towers essentially disintegrated.
The Arlington Fire Dept photos are much much better than the ones shown. To my knowledge they have not been made available to the media, why I don't know. They are photos right there on the ground, closeups, not from afar or from across the beltway.
Cricket sounds regarding the eyewitness accounts too...

94. Regarding conspiracy theories....
either you believe the planes crashed accidentally or you believe a conspiracy theory. The issue is which one makes the most sense/answers the most questions. Our government's conspiracy theory (that would be the Osama bin Laden one) is so full of holes that it's a marvel anyone still takes it seriously.

96. The planes did not crash accidentally under either scenario...
Terrorists crashed them on purpose. The question is whether Bush and his cabal knew about it ahead of time...I believe they did not. I do think they are culpable in their general neglect of preparing and preventing for such attacks.

98. Amen, Elmer
and I do believe that the RW loves to perpetuate these theories because it makes liberals look like nuts. It's an old Karl Rove strategy that goes back years....throw out the bone, give the dumb Democrats time to run with it and then bring out the evidence that it couldn't be true.

And Democrats fall for it every fucking time. It's unbearable.

It was a plane, folks. And it slammed into its intended target. There are loads of witnesses. There are hundreds of people who put their relatives on the plane. If it didn't crash into the Pentagon, where is it? The government accidentally shot it down, then incinerated the evidence without anyone knowing? And then thought, "We'd better blow up part of the Pentagon to cover up our accident!"

Oh my God, people.

108. accidentally?
Never anything like that. I haven't jumped on the "it was an inside job" bandwagon yet, but I don't really understand why tapes from various other locations have not been released. Supposedly there was video from a bank and hotel that would have captured the hit but they were confiscated following the attack. Now assuming this is true I do not understand why these tapes have no been released. Can you or anyone else think of any good reasons?

113. Too fuzzy to see anything
I watched the video earlier today and it sure didn't show me anything. I watched Loose Change about a month or six weeks ago and it scared the shit out of me. Started turning me from LIHOP to MIHOP. This video doesn't change anything -- I can't see the plane, just flames and smoke.

118. I have watched the video
from:

http://www.judicialwatch.org/flight77.shtml

six times and still see no plane.

It tickles me that some of the people that have just started examining 9/11 are still gulping down the bs, hook, line and sinker. Hope they don't have to burp anytime soon. That hook coming back up is gonna hurt BIG TIME.

Keep your ears and eyes open. This is being used as a deflection of something big coming.

123. I agree. You see only the front section of the fuselage -
the video then 'jumps' to the next frame which is the explosion. That fuselage could have belonged to ANY thing!

122. My thought is this.......to hit the Pentagon right where the new
construction was just completed...no employees there yet...was some precisiion flying.....how about remote control of the planes?

Drones are remotely controlled..why not major airlines?

Tin foil hat is firmly in place!

124. I thought those conspiracy people were all nuts, now I see the
evidence CNN says will lay all the conspiracy theories to rest. Where is the f---ing plane? If anything this makes me believe there was no plane. The Pentagon has to be the most secure building on earth and this is the only evidence, two shots one showing a little white blotch on the edge? I lived in Arlington VA 35 years ago and even then there would have been hundreds of eye witnesses on the highway at that time, where are they? As I remember the Pentagon was surrounded by a huge lawn and I can't believe there weren't videos of every square inch of the area.

132. The fake plane is a distraction from the real conspiracy.
Edited on Wed May-17-06 08:46 AM by sofa king
That section of the Pentagon very much was occupied, by the DOD's counterterrorism unit which had just moved in to that section. Most of them died, including the general in charge, and somehow that revelation has never been made public.

Taken in combination with the destruction of the WTC-7 building, which held offices of the CIA, the Secret Service, INS, the DOD, and the SEC, and I think you have an excellent insight into who helped perpetrate the attacks.

The construction of the final report on the collapse of WTC-7, which was across the street from the two buildings which were hit, has taken longer than it took to build a new 52 story building on the site. The 9/11 Commission never mentioned it.

Unfortunately, you can't take my word for it about the Pentagon crash--I heard it around in bars and I've never had the balls to repeat the rumor in print because I figured it could turn out to be a rough ride for me. But there should be plenty of other people in this town who should know it for a fact. I think it's time that the press started looking into it.

Edit: when I say something as important as this, I shouldn't hint as to what I think it means. So here it is: I think that elements within the federal government planned and facilitated the attacks of September 11. I think that the Israelis discovered the plot and tipped off the Bush Administration to it. I think that the Bush Administration, instead of doing anything about it, got out of Osama bin Laden's way by stopping the plot to find him in Afghanistan with Predator drones. I think they intentionally created an alibi of confusion by scheduling NORAD hijacking excercises on the day of the attacks. I think they concealed the crime by hamstringing the counterterrorist organizations which had the best chance of uncovering it, by collapsing the WTC-7 building and by murdering the counterterrorists in the rebuilt section of the Pentagon, conveniently destroying all paper records. I think the hijackers of the plane were given the information on the Pentagon by people friendly to the Bush Administration, perhaps Jack Abramoff, who apparently entertained some of the future hijackers on his casino boat on September 5, 2001.

I would also like to point out that if the Bush Administration had not gone to such great and unusual lengths to cover up and conceal every single one of those allegations above, I would not be able to make such a specific accusation. Because the federal government has the information and is intentionally keeping it from the public, the burden of proof is on them to disprove my allegations. This is not the same thing as asking someone to prove a negative.

137. I just LOVE how whenever one brings up MIHOP or LIHOP
as in 911 was an INSIDE JOB....the very first thing, the very first thing a skeptic will bring up is " No way our government did that...it would take a HUGE number of people to pull something like that off"....and yet they are very willing to believe that it only took 19 arabs. Go figure.

142. Is that all? -- They already released these pictures last year!
OK, what's the hoopla with this "newly released" video?

Am I dreaming all this, or did they already released these pictures a year ago?
I have already seen this sequence of still-shots by the security camera at the Pentagon.

What's all the hoopla about this "new release"?

Why is the entire media selling this as a new "disclosure"? Is the same sequence of stills!!!

What the heck?

:wtf:

PS: Not to fuel any conspiracy, which I don't like, but you still can't tell if that's a plane, a bus, or a banana. Sorry, but these images clear nothing, really.

154. I just watched all the videos at Judicial Watch -- and I am not impressed!
These videos don't prove that an airliner hit the pentagon -- all one can discern is a small white nose of some kind of plane. What kind of plane was Flight 77 -- did it have a white nose? The airplane nose in the video looked kinda small to me.
