Perhaps not, but it should be, at least regarding the question of plane impact! This paper has gathered every argument raised to dispute the official claim that AA77 hit the Pentagon. It shows that not one of these claims stands up to investigation. Just because the official reports of the events of 9/11 are full of lies and clever deceptions does not necessarily mean that everything they assert will be incorrect.
In this case the clever deception is to release only a small amount of information and to make sure that what they release is ambiguous or contradictory. Thus conflict develops among truth activists with obvious damaging effects on their credibility. How can we expect the public to pay attention to our claim that explosives were used in the demolition of the WTC buildings if we cannot agree about such a straightforward matter as the attack on the Pentagon?
It was David Ray Griffin who provided the trigger for this paper. He set out to assemble the evidence for and against the plane impact theory in Chapter 7 of his recent book “9/11 Ten Years Later“. It seemed to me that he had done so in a way which left the reader with the impression that it was likely that there was no plane impact. I had previously thought that the matter had been settled to the satisfaction of any scientist by the publication of papers co-authored with Warren Stutt and with David Chandler. Griffin is not a scientist but he has written many excellent books on the subject of 9/11 and is highly regarded and influential. I thought his book would prolong the debate to the detriment of the 9/11 truth movement and decided to set out the evidence that I had collected over the years of studying this incident. It is to be found at the Journal of 9/11 Studies, titled “The 9/11 Attack on the Pentagon: the Search for Consensus“. Comments are invited.
