Independent Investigation Into Pentagon Attack Yields Alarming Information
Researchers present new eyewitness testimony which they say proves the government's story to be a "monstrous lie"


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 27, 2009 – A three year independent investigation into the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon has yielded new eyewitness evidence which, according to the Southern California-based researchers who conducted the investigation, "conclusively (and unfortunately) establishes as a historical fact that the violence which took place in Arlington that day was not the result of a surprise attack by suicide hijackers, but rather a military black operation involving a carefully planned and skillfully executed deception."

They have compiled the most pertinent testimony into an 81 minute video presentation entitled National Security Alert, which has earned the respect and praise of a growing number of distinguished academics, journalists, writers, entertainers, pilots, and military personnel.

The investigation involved multiple trips to the scene of the crime in Arlington, Virginia, close scrutiny of all official and unofficial data related to the event, and, most importantly, first-person interviews with dozens of eyewitnesses, many of which were conducted and filmed in the exact locations from which they witnessed the plane that allegedly struck the building that day. It was primarily conducted by two men named Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis, also known as Citizen Investigation Team, or CIT.

"There were a growing number of people in the United States and around the world who were suspicious of the government's story about what had happened at the Pentagon that day," Ranke explains. "The doubts were initially fueled by the dubious damage to the building, which seemed incompatible with a 757 crash, the deliberate lack of transparency by the authorities, and many other issues, but they really intensified after a team of professional pilots (Pilots for 9/11 Truth) analyzed the data obtained from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) via a Freedom of Information Act request in 2006, which was supposedly from the black box of American Airlines Flight 77, and found that the last reported altitude of the plane was far too high to have struck the light poles or the building. This meant that either the plane did not cause the observed physical damage, that the government had released fraudulent data, or both."

"We were tired of the cover-up, but we were also frustrated with the dead-end theorizing that was taking place", says Marquis of the project's genesis. "We knew that the only way we were ever going to know what had really happened was if we actually went to the area, knocked on doors, and interviewed everyday people about what they saw."

When these eyewitness accounts are aggregated, they paint a very disturbing picture, say the researchers.

"To put it as concisely as possible, the plane had to have flown on a very specific flight path in the final seconds before it reached the Pentagon in order to have caused the observed damage, starting with the light poles that were photographed on the ground and ending with the directional damage to the building itself which was outlined in detail by the American Society of Civil Engineers," explains Ranke. "The government claims the plane flew on this flight path and hit the building. The eyewitnesses in all of the most critical vantage points, on the other hand, independently, unanimously, and unequivocally report a drastically different flight path, proving that the plane absolutely could not have hit the light poles or the building. It is a non-controversial scientific fact that a strike from this trajectory would have caused a very different damage path."

It wasn't just witnesses who watched the plane approach the building that the team spoke with, however.

"We've also published our interview with a Pentagon police officer who saw the plane flying away from the Pentagon immediately after the explosion", says Marquis. "We already knew that the plane could not have hit based on the testimony of the witnesses on the other side of the building who watched it approach, but it was still vindicating to get this kind of confirmation."

A 2006 Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll found that "More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East." Nevertheless, Ranke and Marquis acknowledge it is still quite controversial to claim, as they do, that "criminal elements within the U.S. government" were complicit in the attacks.

"If you are skeptical of (or even incensed by) this statement we do not blame you," reads a note on the front page of their website, CitizenInvestigationTeam.com. "We are not asking you to take our word for it, nor do we want you to do that. We want you to view the evidence and see with your own eyes that this is the case. We want you to hear it directly from the eyewitnesses who were there, just as we did."

Many people seem to be taking them up on this offer. Their video has already received almost 70,000 views online since it was first posted to their website a few weeks ago with only a grass roots promotional effort behind it.

Perhaps more notable than the size of the audience, however, is the caliber of some of the people in it. A newly-published compendium of endorsements on the CitizenInvestigationTeam.com website includes praise from a wide array of distinguished and well-respected Americans.

Emmy-award winning actor and former president of The Screen actors Guild, Ed Asner, calls the film a "reasoned, and methodical look at witness testimony the day the Pentagon was attacked on Sept. 11th".

Prolific non-ficition author Dr. Peter Dale Scott, Professor Emeritus of the University of California, Berkeley affirms that the film "successfully rebuts the official account of Flight 77's flight path on 9/11 as it approached the Pentagon".

"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", says FAA certified pilot Robert Balsamo.

Dr. David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé and many other titles, says he is "pleased to be able to recommend this important film with enthusiasm", while scholar, author, and radio host Dr. Kevin Barrett says that the film proves "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."

Scott McKinsey, an award-winning network television director, says "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".

Architect Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org), a coalition of over 700 professional architects and engineers calling for a new independent investigation of the destruction of the three skyscrapers in New York on 9/11 (the third was World Trade Center 7), calls the film "long overdue, but worth waiting for" and says that it "deserves serious attention".

Retired Navy Commander and aviator James R. Compton calls National Security Alert "the best reporting I've seen in a long, long time" and "a must see for every citizen in our country".

"Government and media figures who dare ignore evidence this conclusive do so at their own peril", warns Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford, a retired Marine pilot who has flown 303 combat missions.

Hi Craig!

Great article and wonderful news.

The only comment I can think of is maybe an example of the kind of open, impartial and far reaching new investigation we want to seek accountability. I think the recently concluded Australian investigation into the WWII loss of HMAS Sydney II is a good model.

Sydney was sunk by the German disguised merchant cruiser Kormoran on November 19, 1941 off the Western Australia coast near Perth. On the face of it the odds were so stacked against the Germans that it is almost impossible to see how it happened. No one survived from Sydney but 3/4 of the German did and reached shore where they were captured.

The only account was the German account. Sydney approached to within 1000 yards interrogating Kormoran about her identity, at which point the Germans took down their false Norwegian flag, ran up the German Battle Ensign, and suddenly opened a barrage of fire on the Sydney's superstructure with their pre-aimed guns. Within a minute, the Sydney's fire directors, steering control, communications, command structure and most of her main battery were destroyed. For good measure, the Germans put one torpedo into her. Then, what remained of Sydney's main battery managed on local control to score a few hits and put Kormoran in sinking condition.

Sydney's conduct was inexplicable because distance gave her an overwhelming advantage so there was no need to get so close. The Australians were close-mouthed about the matter, handled it poorly and tended to blame the Sydney's captain. Without the two wrecks available, the matter generated 911-like controversy and alternative theories over 66 years -books, websites, the whole thing. The biggest theory was that a Japanese submarine actually sunk Sydney with two or more torpedoes (three weeks before Pearl harbor) and that this involvement was covered up so that the unfolding events that would get the US into the war would not be obstructed. The second biggest was that Sydney's Captain Burnett was hastily blamed to put a lid on it and cover up any number of other matters.

Both wrecks were found in March 2008. Sydney had one torpedo hole in her, in accord with the German account. Despite this, a new investigation was set up and specifically charged with thoroughly considering all of the alternative theories. Their proponents were given a chance to present evidence and testimony. All alternatives were carefully examined and analyzed and comprehensively dealt with in a written report issued in July 2009.

The Japanese submarine theory failed for obvious reasons. But the investigation and analysis
went far further than "one hole, that's it". While Captain Burnett's actions remained inexplicable and surely worthy of some blame, it was found that perhaps he was hastily and excessively blamed as part of a sort of benign cover up. At the time, the matter raised insoluble problems with the touchy doctrinal issues raised when warships encounter merchant vessels. The ships were almost always innocent but there was always a remote chance . . . The report suggests that it may have been easier to blame Burnett than deal with the issues.

I think that if anyone asks, we should answer that we want an investigation charged and conducted like this one. As to the outcome, I guess that's the chance we take. Link to Report:

It seemed for a while OEN was seriously considering putting all of us “conspiracy theorists” into a separate section so as not to muddle their new found legitimacy. Perhaps with all of this backing, it won’t seem like such a fringe group any more and will be accepted by the OEN staph as legitimate. I’ve been pointing out particular anomalies that the official reports either ignored or never bothered to address and have been called "one of them” by a diehard believer in the suicide attack theory who invariably cites the official reports.

OEN had a problem with people attacking the 'official theory believers', who were doing their own brand of attacks. So if you leave comments there, be sure to be respectful (even though it's not required of the other side) or you'll be banned, as several have.

I just don't understand why, if Obama is supposed to be the one to bring CHANGE, why hasn't his administration moved forward to investigating further this crime? I knew right then on 9/11/2001 when I saw the pictures of the burning Pentagon that it could not have been a B-757 due to the absence of wing tips, verticle stabilizer, large landing gear, large engines, etc. There was no debris field. A crime was committed and people need to be brought to justice. Has anyone approached our new Attorney General with any of this evidence, or any evidence from the WTC site?

I believe the lack of wreckage, the lack of wing entry marks on the building, or engine marks on the ground or in the pentagon douse any light that might be showing on the Bush Adminstration canard. Further, after stating the aircraft had vaporized, and yet, they were removing the bodies of the workers caught in the portion of the Pentagon damaged by "something." In fact, the hole is, what, 18 feet by 16 feet? Window glass around this alleged entry point remained undamaged. The roof section didn't fall for 30 minutes after the alleged impact. What were all the white shirts looking for in their 'in line' investigation of the ground. What was under the blue tarp? There is no doubt that NO 757 IMPACTED THE PENTAGON. The last known posit of this aircraft was over the Atlantic.

It is further established by the "equipment" on the belly of both E767s rules out these airplanes being airliners. They weren't painted like the airliners they were. Further, interested persons might google up OPERATION AMALGAM VIRGO. I have to admit surprise at the immaturity of these investigations. All the data in this film is well known by anyone doing even a modicum of investigations.

Brilliant mate.
It is getting 99% positive feedback at Jones site. I STILL can´t believe some did not even know about this evidence.
A lot of people there too, like myself have been sending this info to Jones´ channel for months. Better late than never. Gonna keep an eye out for the inevitable begrudgers and disinfobots on these sites for a while.
Does the Rense article have a link?
Pilots and CIT.
The only show in town. And the only real oppurtunity to make these b*stards squirm.
Let´s keep this pressure up.
Well done lads.

Craig and Aldo, you focused on a specific aspect of the attacks, rolled up your sleeves, attacked the problem in a systematic and productive way, created a record which proves beyond any reasonable doubt the government account is nonsense, and presented your results in a concise and accessible way.

Finally people are taking notice.

Frikken WELL DONE!!!!
