Pentagon releases 9/11 video

Click to follow

Almost five years after the event, pictures were released yesterday that appear to capture the moment when American Airlines flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon in Washington DC, on 11 September, 2001.

The pictures, obtained by the legal rights group Judicial Watch, consist of frames taken every half second by a security camera at a Pentagon parking lot.

So indistinct are the pictures they are unlikely to quell conspiracy theories on the internet that there was no plane, but a missile, that day. The real question is why the Pentagon blocked their release for so long.
