'New' pictures of flight 77 released

In what can only be described as bizarre, news networks described pictures of the attack on the Pentagon in 2001 as ‘newly released’. Sky News, the BBC and CNN. However, the pictures had in fact surfaced over 4 years ago and were shown on TV networks across the world and can be seen on CNN's archive. The more recent footage without the spurious date of 09/12/2001 will do little to curb the many conspiracy theories [The Powerhour.com] that are abound the internet, least of all due to the length of time it has taken to release these ‘new’ pictures. French author Thierry Meyssan in his books L’Effroyable Imposture and Le Pentagate, alleged that Flight 77 did not crash into the Pentagon and suggested a truck bomb or missile caused the damage. The pictures show very little other than a ‘silvery object’ seen bearing down on the Pentagon followed by a massive explosion. There were a few additional pictures not previously released, but they themselves reveal anything new. The Justice Department handed over the tapes showing American Airlines Flight 77 striking the building outside Washington to Judicial Watch, a public interest group that requested the video. CNN did clarify by way of their website that not all the images were new. “Previously released still photographs from those cameras show the Pentagon on fire, but no images of the Boeing 757 striking the building have ever been made public. The video released Tuesday was the source of those still photos.” The website stated. Tom Fitton, of Judicial Watch said, “We had fought hard to obtain this video”, adding that he thought it “important to complete the public record with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001. Posted by Picasa
