You inspired me to reprise the old thread I made off Russell's work back when we got back from our first trip to Arlington in 2006......
This post is a recompilation of the information obtained on our first trip to Arlington by Russell Pickering. Some of the sentence phrasing was constructed in his creepy manipulative style. I have altered it accordingly.
To this day it remains relevant and is in my opinion the most important and significant (legitimate) research he has ever published.
Funny how it never really ever made it to his now defunct website before he completely imploded and quit
the movement all together. The Sheraton
On our initial research trip to Arlington we did some investigating in regards to the confiscated video tapes.
We conveniently stayed at the Sheraton National on the 14th floor with an amazing view of the pentagon and all the potential flight paths.
(view from Sheraton, flight path illustrated by Edward Paik)
This made it convenient to look into the situation about the video that was confiscated from the Sheraton.
First let's note what the FBI had previously said about this video.
The MACGUIRE DOCUMENTS were the initial result of an FBI response from special agent Jacqueline Macguire to the previous FOIA efforts regarding the sequestered security video tapes for the most part still in government possession.
The documents can still be viewed here too at full size: http://www.pentagonresearch.com/video.html
(CIT has them saved but let's refer here while they still exist)
The FBI says:
"I also conducted a search of the FBI's Electronic Case File System, Investigative Case Management System, and other evidence databases for any videotapes in the possession of the FBI from the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. I did not locate any such video tape."
This is purely nonsense. The notion that the FBI missed getting that camera after acquiring 85 total videos that they admit to having is plain old silly. The Sheraton camera would have had a very valuable view and would have been in the top two most obvious locations to check first - the other being the Citgo. The following image is to locate and document the video camera that was at the Sheraton.:
This is the exact same location now. Note how the old camera is missing and the new camera appears to be the same model as the new camera at the Pentagon wall, the Annex and the same as we saw at the military buildings in Pentagon City as I will later demonstrate.
This is taken from the room. The importance of this is that the camera would have been nearly the closest one and would certainly have been able to confirm or deny what all of the eyewitnesses on Columbia Pike and the CITGO station told us.
But it was mysteriously removed!
Trying to give the benefit of the doubt we attempted to investigate this. Dylan Avery & Russell Pickering both had tried many calls to the general manager Paul Giovanni prior to the trip. Then while there in person we went to his office 3 times. At one point, in a last desperate attempt, Dylan and Russell went together and left a handwritten note with Giovanni's assistant explaining the request to see him.
Russell watched his assistant go talk to him as he made excuses just 40 feet away from them. The assistant finally ran into him in the lobby and told him that Giovanni refused to talk with us. It became clear that Giovanni made a significant effort to physically avoid anyone with our team.
My assessment in regards to the Sheraton video is that we are being lied to. The camera is well documented to have been there before and after 9/11. The tape is "missing" now and the camera has been physically removed. The general manager Paul Giovanni is terrified to talk about it and everybody there is tight lipped. There is a clear cover up going on as concluded by Russell Pickering and the entire team.
But there are 84 other video tapes that were confiscated according to the FBI.
