Where do I start with this one?
In Dec. of 2009, Jessie Ventura did one of his “Conspiracy Theory” shows on the 9/11 Truth movement. I reviewed his work in an article called “A Truth Advocate Reviews Jesse Ventura’s “Conspiracy Theory – 9/11″ ” In that review I concluded that Ventura or his editors presented the weakest possible presentation of the mounds of evidence collected over the years by Truth researchers.
The other day, Ventura presented yet another of his backhanded hit pieces, this time on the question of what hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11th 2001.
The model for what Ventura is doing is pretty clear; he supposedly presents the case of the Truth advocates while actually making the evidence for the case look weak so that the general audiences look at it and wonders how the hell Truth advocates believe such ridiculous crap.
Let’s look at it, shall we?
1. Flight 77 Dropping off the Radar Not Mentioned
Twice Ventura’s show depicts Flight 77, which supposedly hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11th 2001 at around 9:38am, taking off, flying its course, turning around, and flying back to the Pentagon. All the way back to the Pentagon. This is deliberately misleading.
Flight 77 is actually the only plane of the 4 hijacked aircrafts, that dropped off the radar screens and was never seen again until it supposedly hit the Pentagon. This has been made clear many times by NORAD, the FAA, and even the MSM… but apparently this doesn’t rate even a mention in Jessie Ventura’s show. (click on image for larger view)
As you can see in the image above, Flight 77 was the ONLY aircraft that dropped off the radar screen on Sept. 11th 2001. It is also the ONLY flight that hit a designated target with precise accuracy, taking out the office that was looking into the missing 2.3 trillion dollars that had been announced by Donald Rumsfeld the day before 9/11.
Here’s another version of the flight path of the hijacked planes that day, this one from Time magazine.
Again, the flight path of Flight 77 is in a dotted line, because it is assumed that this is the path, as that Flight 77 dropped off radar contact for its entire return flight to the DC area. Of course, watching Jessie Ventura’s show, you wouldn’t know that.
Why doesn’t Jessie’s show mention that Flight 77 dropped off the radar for 30 minutes? Why doesn’t Jessie’s show mention that Flight 77 was the only flight of the 4 hijacked flights to do so? It would see that mentioning that fact would help support their evidence that there were almost no pieces of wreckage from a massive 757; there was no wreckage because Flight 77 never went back to DC.
But for some reason, Ventura’s show leaves that important and well documented fact completely out of his show. Why?
The answer is simple.. if Flight 77 didn’t go back to DC, then there could be no “fly over” theory. Jessie’s show was deliberately misleading us.
2. Dwain Deets and the “Fly Over” Theory
Without explaining to his audience who Dwain Deets was (head of Dryden Flight Research Center during the development of the Drone air-crafts) Jessie Ventura presents Deets as a NASA expert (which he is) and allows him a great deal of time to express his views on what happened at the Pentagon.
While Deets is talking about how improbable it is that the nose-cone of a passenger plane could break through several walls of the Pentagon and end up punching through the “C” ring, this is the clip Ventura is running in the background… a video of a test crash of a passenger plane in which the ONLY part that seems to survive… is the nose cone.
As you can see, in order to undermine the legitimacy of what Deets was saying, Jessie Ventura’s “researchers” run a film of a flaming crash of a passenger plane in which the only thing that seems to hold together, is the nose cone.
But it gets worse.
Then Deets goes on to explain that his theory, based on two internet ad campaign guys interviewing 11 Pentagon and Department of the Army employees, is that Flight 77 actually flew over the Pentagon, after some kind of explosion took place. This would mean that the overall plan was to set off an explosion of some kind, get everyone who is stuck in traffic around the Pentagon (perhaps a thousand cars) looking right at the Pentagon, then fly Flight 77 right over that explosion, at tree-top level, buzzing the roof of the Pentagon. This is called the “Flyover Theory” and it’s about as stupid as Scientology.
But, this is what Deets was allowed to present on Jessie Ventura’s show complete with slides. Ventura then shows the Pentagon camera clips, the only ones released, which clearly shows nothing passing over the Pentagon as it does show something small cutting low over the lawn and striking the Pentagon.
Let’s take a look at what Ventura’s show presented.
First we have the “North of the Citgo” flight path as created by two internet PR guys and their defense department “witnesses”.
Notice something they deliberately included in the animation?
That’s right, they included a shadow for some reason.
The arrow would have worked just fine in demonstrating their supposed flight path without a shadow, so why include it?
These are images from the Pentagon security tape they ran directly after Deets’ animation. What stands out?
What stands out? Shadows. We can clear see the shadows and the direction the sunlight is coming from. Had a massive 757 “flown over” the Pentagon, “just above the range of the camera’, you would still see the shadow of that plane on the lawn in front of the Pentagon. But alas, there is none.
3. April Gallop Goes CIT on Us
Ventura then brings out April Gallop. Now she is the woman who was in the Pentagon, upstairs, when the attack took place. She states that “it sounded like a bomb”. She does state that she didn’t see a plane as she climbed out the hole that was in the side of the Pentagon. That certainly doesn’t help the Jim Hoffmans out there in their effort to get you to believe the official story of the Pentagon.
And to their credit, they did mention and show Pentagon lawn videos that showed no Flight 77 debris as well as video from another plane crash where debris was easily recognizable. They also mentioned the fact that the bodies (or parts of them) were removed supposedly and identified at a different location. And they mentioned that they didn’t see luggage and bodies in seats, wings, tail sections, or massive 9 ton aircraft engines.
April’s story continues as she recalls her visit in the hospital when the military brass told her it was not a “bomb” like she thought, but rather, a plane.
Ending April’s contribution, it is stated that she has a lawsuit pending claiming that Flight 77 “flew over” the Pentagon and a bomb blew up the building.
I suppose what we all see in the video is the bomb that someone threw at the Pentagon?
4. Last Words
Just like in his previous 9/11 themed video, Ventura saves the last words on this subject for the officials.
Janice Kephart, 9/11 Commision Report General Council – “I don’t know if you think the 9/11 Commission was duped or if you think we were part of the problem”
Ventura – “I think you were duped”
It has been revealed that Philip Zelikow, close friend of Condi Rice and former transition team member of the Bush White House, came into his appointment as Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission Report with an outline of the investigation already in hand. It was Zelikow who decided what was investigated, what was not. And it was Zelikow ultimately who decided what went into the report. It was also Zelikow who let Bush and Cheney testify, together, off the record, without being sworn in, and with no recording devices.
Did the Commission Report get “duped” on that one, Mr. Ventura? Of course not.
Then Jessie even goes further suggesting that the Warren Commission was also “duped”. Kennedy had fired Allen Dulles and was in the process of breaking up the CIA when he was killed. Allen Dulles was put on the Warren Commission by Johnson. Were they “duped”?
Overall this is a very weak effort, if not outright Cass Sunstein disinfo.
It’s very unlikely that anyone would come up with a plan that involved having a weak pilot like Hanjour slamming a 757 into a small target and then sitting directly opposite that target in his office at the Pentagon. But if you accept the Jim Hoffmans of the Truth movement, that is exactly what happened. I doubt it. Too many opportunities for that plane to miss the 2.3 trillion dollar office and skip off the roof ending up in Rumsfelds desk, with him in it.
It’s also ridiculous to believe that the planners of 9/11 came up with a plan that would involve setting off massive explosives at the Pentagon, getting everyone looking in that direction, then flying Flight 77 right over that huge fireball, and expecting no one would ever mention it.
Also unlikely is the possibility of something like a missile hitting the Pentagon. Though it certainly is more accurate than a 757 and it certainly would account for the damage that we saw, the fact is, too many people would report seeing “a missile” rather than a plane.
I think the only thing that makes sense is a drone of some kind, something painted or maybe even custom-made to look like Flight 77, but smaller, and flown by remote. Here we have answers to all those questions. Yes, a drone flying low across the lawn could account for what is seen in the video images, and yes it would explain why some people reported they saw a passenger jet and some said they saw a small business type plane.
That being the case, isn’t it strange that we just happen to have Dwain Deets, the guy who headed up the drone program, out there front and center on the “Fly Over” theory?
Listen to what Ventura wraps the show with…
Ventura: “Was it a missile that hit the Pentagon. Was it a bomb? Or was it what they told us?”
Every option but the obvious one.
No Mr. Ventura, it was a drone. A drone with an engine in the center of its hull that would account for the hole in the “C” ring.
A drone with no seats and no passengers.
A drone that could fly over the radar cover and easily make the 300 deg turn while descending from the high altitude.
A drone that could be rigged on the outside like Flight 77 so witnesses would report seeing a passenger plane hitting the building, and flown by remote so that it hit exactly where it was supposed to hit. It’s cargo area could be rigged with high explosives which would account for the 15-19 foot hole in the side of the Pentagon.
A drone from an industry that profited from the Global War on Terror like few other industries.
Flight 77 took off. They dropped off the radar, a drone took it’s place and struck the Pentagon. It was equiped with a military identifier which is why it was not shot out of the sky and when people saw it, the thought it was a passenger plane.
