Witness E-F breakdown

GOPUSA founder Bobby Eberle was heavily implicated in "Gannongate"

http://insider-magazine.org/Gannongate.htm
"The route from where I'm staying to my conference hotel runs right by the Pentagon. As we slowly crept along in traffic at about 9:30 am, we rounded a bend and had the Pentagon in our sites -- right in front of us. We continued to listen to the radio to take in the latest news on what was happening.

[...]

The aircraft was so very low -- as an aircraft would be on its final approach to an airport. However, if you have watched any aircraft come in for a landing, even though the aircraft is descending, it is angled up slightly. This aircraft was angled downward. In addition, landing gear would also be visible on a aircraft so low and so near landing. This aircraft had its landing gear retracted. Finally, an aircraft on final approach is traveling rather slowly. This aircraft sped by very loudly and very quickly.

All of this flashed in my mind as the aircraft passed from behind my left shoulder to in front of me. It was then that the other events of the morning crystallized in the realization that tragedy was about to occur. With all of these images spinning in my head, the only words that came out of my mouth were "Oh no!"

With that, the airliner crashed into the Pentagon and exploded.

I shouted to my friend whose view was partially blocked by a truck in front of us, "Oh my gosh! The jet just hit the Pentagon!"

The "truck" blocked just his friend's view?

His alleged POV is unknown, but if this Bush propagandist is to be believed, he would have been on the stretch of road before the overhead sign where there is no view of the alleged impact zone. Plus the "truck" in the next lane..

This image was released along with multiple images en bloq and was quickly removed by the DOD. It was downloaded purely by luck. Why remove such an apparently innocuous image?

He doesn't mention the plane's approach nor where his car allegedly was when the plane "flew over".
He isn't to be seen in any of the Ingersol images that were taken of the area minutes after the explosion around the lightpole area even though he claimed to be there for "20 minutes".

Why was he allowed to remove alleged physical evidence from the scene and parade it on FOX News? 

He claimed to be a pilot yet isn't registered.

He doesn't mention the lightpoles or Lloyd's cab.





Eiden, Steve

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Steve Eiden, a truck driver, had picked up his cargo that Tuesday morning in Williamsburg, Va., and was en route to New York City and witnessed the aftermath. He took the Highway 95 loop in the area of the Pentagon and thought it odd to see a plane in restricted airspace, thinking to himself it was odd that it was flying so low. "You could almost see the people in the windows," he said as he watched the plane disappear behind a line of trees, followed by a tall plume of black smoke. Then he saw the Pentagon on fire, and an announcement came over the radio that the Pentagon had been hit.

Claims to have witnessed an "impact" but her testimony contradicts the official flightpath.

Pure disinfo used (and still is) at the "American History" site
Context: Driving on a highway adjacent to the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, Penny Elgas stopped as she saw a passenger jet descend, clip a light pole near her, and then crash into the Pentagon. Arriving home, Elgas found this plane fragment in the back seat of her car (she theorizes that it dropped through the open sunroof). Feeling that it was her patriotic duty to preserve the fragment as a relic, she crafted a special box and lined it with red, white, and blue material.

Elliott, Bruce

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Elliott, in a phone interview Wednesday, said he had just left the Pentagon and was about to board a shuttle van in a south parking lot when he saw the plane approach and slam into the west side of the structure. "I looked to my left and saw the plane coming in," said Elliott, who watched it for several seconds. "It was banking and garnering speed. I felt it was headed for the Pentagon." (...) "It was like a kamikaze pilot. I felt it was going to ram the Pentagon," he said. He said the craft clipped a utility pole guide wire, which may have slowed it down a bit before it crashed into the building and burst into flames. (...) Elliott said the rubble was still smoldering Wednesday morning.

There is no view of the alleged impact zone from the south parking lot of the Pentagon.

"It was banking and garnering speed. I felt it was headed for the Pentagon." (...) "It was like a kamikaze pilot. I felt it was going to ram the Pentagon,"

Could not physically see the alleged impact and his words testify to this.

Interviewed by CIT

Discussed here:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?showtopic=429

General discussion here:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?showforum=15

This is the taxi cab driver who's cab (and himself) were photographed on the bridge and whose full story needs to be viewed in the video and links above.

Basically he claims that a lightpole speared his windshield (a physical mystery in itself) but that he "wasn't on the bridge" where the alleged lightpoles on the official path are situated on the side of the road he was allegedly driving on. And that he didn't see the alleged impact.

Detractor arguments addressed here:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?s...0&#entry2465465

Jeff Hill contacted Lloyd England and he repeated exactly the same story as he told CIT:
England: You know what? I know where the cab was and I know where they wanted it to be, but I can prove where the car was. There's a permanent picture of the fire and the Pentagon...my cab is the only cab in the world involved in 9/11...and I know where the car was. And they are trying to put the car somewhere else, for what reason, I don't know because they weren't there.

Hill : So they were trying to use some sort of distorted picture..

England: The pictures were made to be in one place when I was somewhere else....my car is not there at the bridge at Columbia  Pike. They got it wrong, and I don't know why they have it wrong.

Not a witness to the alleged impact and his contradictory story makes him a highly dubious witness. Nobody corroborates his story. 

Maybe this is why?

http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu311/b...GroupsMap-3.jpg

Either way he has totally discredited himself as an honest witness.





Evey, Lee

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html

This guy is repeatedly described as an "impact witness"
Whether you describe it as an explosion or not, people I talk to who were there, some called it an explosion. Others called it a large fire. I'm not sure. I wasn't there, sir. It's just a guess on my part.

He wasn't there at the time of the event.



Faram, Mark

"When the explosion happened I ran down the hill to the site and arrived there approximately 10 minutes after the explosion."

Did not see the flightpath of the aircraft or alleged impact. Claims to have "heard" the explosion.

Flyler, Kim

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...sses/sgydk.html
"Kim Flyler was trying to sneak into a parking space near to the building when she saw the plane: "At that moment I heard a plane and then a loud cracking noise.... Right before the plane hit the building, you could see the silhouettes of people in the back two rows. You couldn't see if they were male or female, but you could tell there was a human being in there."

"Silhouettes". She "heard" the plane and caught a glimpse "right before" the explosion.

She places herself "near the building" in the south parking lot. She could not physically see the alleged impact zone.





Ford, Ken

Source: Media

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
One eyewitness, State Department employee Ken Ford, said he watched from the 15th floor of the State Department Annex, just across the Potomac River from the Pentagon. "We were watching the airport through binoculars," Ford said, referring to Reagan National Airport, a short distance away. "The plane was a two-engine turbo prop that flew up the river from National. Then it turned back toward the Pentagon. We thought it had been waved off and then it hit the building. "

Another alleged witness (an alleged employee of the state department) who contradicts the official path. The aircraft was nowhere near the Potomac river (around the airport area) according to the official story.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...flight_path.jpg

He was in downtown Washington DC and couldn't physically see the aircraft's path within the basin. Nor could he have seen the alleged "impact".

His POV needs to be established.

And why did a "State Department employee" have a pair of binoculaurs handy?




 Fortunato, Don

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImJ0NxZX2wI
"Traffic was at a standstill, so I parked on the shoulder, not far from the scene and ran to the site. Next to me was a cab from D.C., its windshield smashed out by pieces of lampposts. There were pieces of the plane all over the highway, pieces of wing, I think. (...) "There were a lot of people with severe burns, severe contusions, severe lacerations, in shock and emotional distress"

Fortunato wasn't there at the time of the explosion. He was at the police station.

Not a witness to aircraft nor alleged impact.





Foust, Barry (Arlington po)

Navy Capt. Charles Fowler : Navy Capt. Charles Fowler, assigned to the Joint Chiefs, was working on a speech for Gen. Henry Shelton, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, when he heard the explosion. "You could feel the building shake," said Fowler. "You knew it was a major explosion. I grabbed all my gear and grabbed the laptop and headed out." "The interesting part was we didn't hear the alarm go off, but word got around very fast. It was an orderly evacuation" Fowler's office, on the river side, appeared to be on the opposite side from the explosion, he said. "Tons of smoke was coming up from the wedge-lots of black and gray smoke."

After the meeting, just before 9:30 a.m., the young engineer grabbed a subcontractor to help him repair a damaged ceiling grid on the third floor of the Pentagon's E-Ring. The two were in the middle of the job when a strange sound ripped through the room. It lasted just a split second, says Fraunfelter, "A strange sucking, whirring sound, like a loud vacuum cleaner." Then the sound stopped, the building shook violently, and the lights went out.

Unverified second hand media quote. 

911Myths:
Technician Kat Gaines
Fairfax County Fire & Rescue
Certificate of Valor

Gaines was on her way to a part-time job at Reagan National Airport the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, after working a 24-hour shift at Fire Station 16 in Clifton.
Her commute to the airport took her south on Route 110, in front of the parking lots of the Pentagon. As she approached the parking lots, she saw a low-flying jetliner strike the top of nearby telephone poles. She then heard the plane power up and plunge into the Pentagon.

http://web.archive.org/web/20020613210921/.../News/valor.htm

Again, more second hand reporting.

It's impossible to see lightpoles from along that stretch of road.

"(The plane) was flying fast and low and the Pentagon was the obvious target," said Fred Gaskins, who was driving to his job as a national editor at USA TODAY near the Pentagon when the plane passed about 150 feet overhead. "It was flying very smoothly and calmly, without any hint that anything was wrong."

Very vague account which infers that he did not witness the alleged impact.

Describes a "20 passenger jet" that he saw out of the "corner of his eye".

However he is first reported as saying :
at work at the Justice Department

"Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this plane coming down. I was talking on my cell phone to my wife about how close I was to the airport and then I saw the fireball."

Allegedly at work in the Justice Department over 3km away in Washington

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...4701696d265.jpg

He saw the fireball as opposed to the plane "striking" the building. Assumption.

a computer programmer, was on his way to work but stuck in a traffic jam near the Pentagon when the plane flew over. "There was a huge screaming noise and I got out of the car as the plane came over. Everybody was running away in different directions. It was tilting its wings up and down like it was trying to balance. It hit some lampposts on the way in."

Asework Hagos, 26, of Arlington, was driving on Columbia Pike on his way to work as a consultant for Nextel. He saw a plane flying very low and close to nearby buildings. "I thought something was coming down on me. I know this plane is going to crash. I've never seen a plane like this so low." He said he looked at it and saw American Airline insignia and when it made impact with the Pentagon initially he saw smoke, then flames.

He claims to have gotten out of his car and that people were "running away in different directions" - all within what, 2-3 seconds (official time of descent)?

Not quoted once as saying that he saw alleged impact nor did he say that he actually saw the lightpoles being struck.

According to Matt Hahr, Kirlin's senior project manager at the Pentagon, the employee "was thrown about 80 ft down the hall through the air. As he was traveling through the air, he says the ceiling was coming down from the concussion. He got thrown into a closet, the door slammed shut and the fireball went past him," recounts Hahr. "Jet fuel was on him and it irritated his eyes, but he didn't get burned. . . ."

It was like a Hollywood movie or something. "

Being a former transport type (60's era) I cannot understand how that plane hit where it did giving the direction the aircraft was taking at the time. As most know, the Pentagon lies at the bottom of two hills from the west with the east side being next to the river at 14th street bridge. One hill is at the Navy Annex and the other is Arlington Cemetery. The plane came up I-395 also known as Shirley Hwy. (most likely used as a reference point.) The plane had been seen making a lazy pattern in the no fly zone over the White House and US Cap. Why the plane did not hit incoming traffic coming down the river from the north to Reagan Nat'l. is beyond me . Strangely, no one at the Reagan Tower noticed the aircraft. Andrews AFB radar should have also picked up the aircraft I would think. Nevertheless, the aircarft went southwest near Springfield and then veered left over Arlington and then put the nose down coming over Ft Myer picking off trees and light poles near the helicopter pad next to building. It was as if he leveled out at the last minute and put it square into the building. The wings came off as if it went through an arch way leaving a hole in the side of the building it seems a little larger than the wide body of the aircraft.

He wasn't there. He was in his office "8 miles away" when the attack occurred and was relaying what others had told him.

This was deliberately ommitted from his original e-mail by Hoffman and the source he quoted.

On this day of prayer I went to the Pentagon and prayed for those Americans that died at the hands of those evil monsters.

My office is 8 miles from the site. The recovery teams working 18 hour shifts are just now getting to the body of the aircraft that went right through the outer ring at full power according to eyewitnesses.. Being a former transport type (60's era) I cannot understand how that plane hit where it did given the direction the aircraft was taking at the time.

Capt. Jim Ingledue, shift safety officer of the Virginia Beach Fire Dept, said Monday he found amidst the rubble at the Pentagon, two days after 9/11, the perfectly clean and unblemished California ID card of Suzanne Calley, 42, one of the alleged victims killed aboard Flight 77.

Michael James, 37, a Navy information technician watched in horror from his car Tuesday as an airplane careened off a helicopter pad and smashed into the side of the Pentagon, where he spends about half of his day.

"I was supposed to be in the Pentagon underneath all that rubble," said James, pressed into service directing gawkers away from a road leading to the compound. "If it would have happened 10 minutes later, I would have been down there." 

He is often in the lower Corridor 4 offices of the Navy telecommucations 
center around 6 a.m., but Tuesday he was away taking a physical fitness 
exam. 

"The plane came over the top of us and brushed the trees, " he said. 
"Then it looked like it hit the helicopter pad and skipped up and went right into the first and second floors." [...]

Jarvis, who was around the corner from the disaster, tried but failed to see the plane when he left the building. "There was just nothing left. It was incinerated. We couldn't see a tail or a wing or anything," he says. "Just a big black hole in the building with smoke pouring out of it." For someone sitting only 300 metres away from the carnage of American Airlines Flight 77, Jarvis and his officemates were surprisingly well insulated from it. "We thought the plane was a dump truck backing into the building, because there was a lot of construction going on,"

Inside building. Is not a witness to the aircraft nor the alleged impact. Questions site of an alleged aircraft impact.





Johnson, Megan

"They Saw"
"'Today is my worst day yet,' said Megan Johnson of Bristow, Va., yesterday. She was on Interstate 395 when the terrorist plane flew directly in front of her car into the Pentagon.

Second hand account.

In the days after the event he is alleged to have said:
"I am a volunteer firefighter who happened to be driving near the Pentagon when the plane crashed into it. I stopped the car and ran to the site."

He doesn't mention seeing the aircraft before the explosion. Nor the alleged "impact".

Arlington County Fire Department Fire Truck 101

"As I was driving down 95 heading towards the Pentagon, one of my members, teammates, said, 'What is that plane doing?' And by the time I looked up, the plane was moving so fast all I saw was an explosion."

ABC Good Morning America (Lexis-Nexis)

Steve McCoy, the fire captain on the same fire engine is on record as saying
 Fire Captain Steve McCoy and his crew are traveling north on Interstate 395 in ACFD Engine 101, for a training session in Crystal City. McCoy reportedly sees “a commercial airliner in steep descent, banking sharply to its right before disappearing beyond the horizon,” followed by “a tremendous explosion” and “a massive plume of smoke and fire.” He immediately radioes ECC and reports, “We got a plane down, it looks like in the Crystal City area by the 14th Street Bridge.” Being aware of the attacks on the World Trade Center, he advises that the FBI should be notified, as this is a possible terrorist attack

14th Street Bridge:

Kean, Terrance

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Terrance Kean, 35, who lives in a 14-story building nearby, heard the loud jet engines and glanced out his window. 

"I saw this very, very large passenger jet," said the architect, who had been packing for a move. 
"It just plowed right into the side of the Pentagon. The nose penetrated into the portico. And then it sort of disappeared, and there was fire and smoke everywhere. . . . It was very sort of surreal."

This alleged witness has never repeated this story and cannot be found for an interview (if he exists at all). 

Strange thing is that this alleged "architect" described the west face of the Pentagon as having a "portico" (in that this is where he described seeing the "nose penetrate[d]").

This is a "portico"

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...co_Building.jpg

And the only portico is on the opposite side from where the explosion occurred:

Keglovich, James

Source: Media

SGYDK
She said her brother, James Keglovich, 38, a carpenter working near the Pentagon, was on break across the street from that structure when the airliner tore into the building. He and his friends witnessed the plane approaching. 

He told her they began exclaiming, "Where's he going? What's he doing?" when suddenly they saw the plane clip a taxi cab on the nearby bridge. The crash was exceptionally loud, he said. It shook the building and knocked people down who were closer to the point of impact.

Totally fabricated media piece on a third hand account!

Why has this witness never been brought forward to back up Lloyd England's story? Nobody saw the cab being speared. Nobody apart from Lloyd. 
The fact that the reporter quoted this alleged witness' sister as saying that the plane "clip[ped] a taxi cab" points to embellishment. If this were confirmed detractors and the media would have been scrambling to bring him forward as back-up to Lloyd's story.

This is his sister's alleged account of what he allegedly said, reported by a media that has been found out many times twisting the words of multiple alleged "witnesses" around the Pentagon that morning.

He allegedly "told her" that he saw the plane's approach.

The reporter makes the claim that this alleged witness saw the plane "hit".

No dice.

Another example of Hoffman's site playing with the reported media snippet. What this guy is allegedly quoted as saying can be seen in its full context when the entire snippet is read.
Aydan Kizildrgli, an English language student who is a native of Turkey, saw the jetliner bank slightly then strike a western wall of the huge five-sided building that is the headquarters of the nation's military. 'There was a big boom,' he said. 'Everybody was in shock. I turned around to the car behind me and yelled "Did you see that? Nobody could believe it.'

Apart from the fact that it's an unconfirmed account, there's a disconnect between allegedly seeing the plane "bank slightly" and the "big boom".





Kopf, Peter

Source: Media/Jeff Hill

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Peter Kopf, director of information technology at USA TODAY, was stalled in traffic about 9:30 a.m. when the jet hit the Pentagon, creating a 
"huge fireball."
"People (on the highway) were freaking out," he said. "People were turning around and driving the opposite way getting out of their cars, talking on cell phones, crying."

This witness doesn't decribe the path or where he was on Route 27.

10 years after his story was printed he was phoned by Jeff Hill (who has had extremely good luck in contacting these people). He uses a leading technique to reinforce what he wants them to say:

http://www.citizeninvestigationteam.com/CI...Statement/#hill

He concentrated on the "conspiracy nuts are saying that..." line and then consciously avoiding the question as to where the witness was and where they saw the aircraft. That a claim to seeing an "impact" is enough. Why? Because he has singlehandedly pointed out at least 3 more NOC witnesses in the pursuit of an "SOC (official path) witness"!

Kopf has since changed his original story from seeing a "huge fireball" into seeing the alleged impact itself. Why did his co-workers at USA Today fail to seize on it if this were the case? Why just mention the "huge fireball"?

Why is it important to ascertain where he allegedly was on the road that morning? And whether he actually saw the aircraft make contact with the facade?

When he claims to have been stuck in traffic on Route 27, he has to be between the area of lightpole 1 and the "impact area" itself to have any sort of "clear view". In fact, he has to be between lightpole 1 and lightpole 5 IF the aircraft was on the official path.

http://i51.tinypic.com/jr74g8.jpg

He couldn't be behind the overhead sign beside lightpole 1 because there were trees blocking the view of the Pentagon facade.

http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu311/b...waltertrees.jpg

Here's a video taken the same morning from the area in question (before the overhead sign) that show 3 lanes of traffic:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jrSUHbMhJo

Which lane was he in? 

If he was beyond the overhead sign, the aircraft would have flown right over his head. He doesn't describe that. He doesn't claim that is was a matter of feet in front of his car. So where was he and where did he see the aircraft pass over Route 27?

Details that Jeff Hill purposely avoids.





Krohn, Charles H.

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
One of the aircraft's engines somehow ricocheted out of the building and arched into the Pentagon's mall parking area between the main building and the new loading dock facility, said Charles H. Krohn, the Army's deputy chief of public affairs. Those fleeing the building heard a loud secondary explosion about 10 min. after the initial impact.

This "engine" has never been shown or identified. Even if it were true, how could it possibly get to the "mall parking"? 

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/8ae911bc.jpg

Krohn doesn't mention seeing the plane. He is not a witness to the flightpath.

There is no view whatsoever of the basin of land where the Pentagon is. The descent as the aircraft flew over the Navy Annex can be seen but nothing after that. The school is also just two floors in height.

Lagasse, Sgt. William

...a pentagon police dog handler, the son of an aviation instructor, was filling up his patrol car at a gas station near the Pentagon when he noticed a jet fly in low. He watched as the plane plowed into the Pentagon. Initially, he thought the plane was about to drop on top of him -- it was that close. Lagasse knew something was wrong. The 757's flaps were not deployed and the landing gear was retracted.

"It's a horrible feeling because you're afraid all the time.

Since then, she has been admitted twice to Washington Hospital Center for treatment of severe anxiety.

"It's a horrible feeling because you're afraid all the time. You're afraid to go out." 

That's it. The reporter added the "plane crash" statement. 





Leibner, Lincoln

Source: Media/CIT

This was one of my first posts at the CIT forum (it's a bit amateurish but the info is solid)

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?showtopic=728

The video interview has been 404ed (though I believe CIT have downloaded it somewhere). He was asked by the interviewer where he was and where he saw the plane. This gif shows that he is describing where he allegedly was and from what direction he allegedly saw the aircraft approach. Certainly not the official path.

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e207/Mercury2/test3.gif

"The aircraft went in between the second and third floors." 

He also originally claimed that the aircraft struck a helicopter on the helipad (which didn't happen)
Captain Liebner says the aircraft struck a helicopter on the helipad, setting fire to a fire truck.

It's second hand, but he's never denied this statement.

His story has morphed over the years. He went from describing the scenario where he saw a "helicopter" being struck, to the aircraft "enter[ing] the building like a toy into a birthday cake"

He was allegedly at the southwest corner of the Pentagon where there were a collection of tall, bushy trees on 9/11

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...50aa226e6e2.jpg

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...5a44cb7a187.jpg

And the scenario where he could stand there and watch the alleged impact and explosion without flinching is ridiculous.

On a side note, the official trajectory of the aircraft would have seen the entry point on to the lawn where the white trailers can be seen in the last image above. Leibner claimed to be standing at the southwest corner of the building walking towards the bridge.

And he described this flightpath:

...driving northbound in the HOV lanes on I-395

His car passed the crest of the hill, at the point where Washington comes fully into view and the Pentagon is on the left
[...] "I looked in the rearview mirror to check the traffic and saw only a plane, flying very low. I followed it in my left outside mirror. I braked, looked out my left window and saw a large commercial aircraft aiming for the Pentagon." "The aircraft, so close to the ground, was banked skillfully to the right, leveled off perpendicular to the Pentagon's southwest side, then went full throttle directly toward the building. The plane vanished, absorbed by the building, and there was a slight pause. Then a huge fireball rose into the sky."

-The Washington Post
•  Robert Leonard: “I … saw a large commercial aircraft aiming for the Pentagon.”
http://www.america.gov/st/webchat-english/...l#ixzz22QlvdsoL

This alleged witness was contacted by Jeff Hill just after he had stopped asking witnesses which flightpath the aircraft took as he was finding the same pattern that CIT consistently found. That nobody was describing the official path. This one slipped through the net:

ROBERT LEONARD:  I saw it in my rear-view mirror of my car and then I saw it out the left uh driver's side window.  And um, it had gone over the interstate 395 that I was on, and um went, um to the area just kind of near where the Air Force Memorial is now, a little bit lower down the hill and um banked to the right, and um it put its engines at full throttle and then went, it was uh, it was, would be directly perpendicular to the wall of the Pentagon and um it just went full speed right into the Pentagon.

JEFF HILL:  So like the Air Force Memorial that's like, so it would have went over the Navy Annex I guess?

ROBERT LEONARD:  No it didn't go that far up um as the Navy Annex, it was like, it was below actually where the Air Force Memorial is.

HILL:   Uh huh.  And so like, and you seen it like...

LEONARD:  There used to be like, some kind of a gas station there, it went to that point.

HILL: Yeah yeah yeah that Citgo gas station so it would have flew over that or?

LEONARD:  It was over that when it um, banked sharply to the right.

HILL: And did you happen to see it hit those light poles?

LEONARD:  Um no I didn't see that, I think the, you see I didn't read about the incident, it's only what I witnessed, but um the light poles I think were on 395 because the plane was just um, just behind my car almost over it.


HILL:   Mhm and did you see that taxi cab at all that was hit by a light pole?

LEONARD:  No that would have been behind me.

HILL:  Oh yeah yeah? So it was like uh, where that, where that memorial is now in front of the Navy Annex.  It would have, I'm trying to understand what you mean when...

LEONARD:  Just the memorial would have been below what the path of the plane.

HILL: So like, I don't, what do you mean like below?

LEONARD:  When the plane banked to the right say over to the Citgo station and then headed toward the Pentagon, the um memorial, which I haven't visited, um would have been below the plane's route.

HILL:   So like below, meaning the plane was over it or?

LEONARD:  Yeah the plane was over it.
LEONARD:  It banked, you see it banked and because I was seeing it in slow motion it appeared as if it stopped over the Citgo gas station as it was making like almost a right angle turn, and um that's when it revved its engines up to full speed and like started its charge towards the Pentagon.

He doesn't describe seeing, nor can he physically see, the alleged impact zone.
In both his media and Hill's account, he's describing a sharp right bank (and mentions the Citgo gas station in Hill's phonecall) which contradicts the necessary level flightpath to line up with the directional damage.





Lyman, Mary

911Myths

"I was driving northbound to work in the District on I-395 when the Pentagon was hit. I actually saw the plane in front of me, coming in at a very steep angle toward the ground and going fast -- I think I actually heard it accelerate -- and then it disappeared and a cloud of smoke started billowing.
Traffic stopped dead, of course; I was within sight of the first Washington Boulevard exit at that point. We sat there for about 45 minutes, pulling over to the side so emergency vehicles could get through. Most of us got out of our cars, walked around and talked to each other, comparing notes on what we'd heard and trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to reach people on our cellphones.
Police eventually made us get back in our cars and turn around, going back the wrong way down the highway. I got off at the Glebe Road exit (moving down the up ramp)...
The Washington Post, September 16 2001

Earlier, Mary Lyman, 47, of Alexandria, had been driving on the same highway, passing the Pentagon on her way to her job as a lobbyist in Washington. She witnessed the crash.
"I saw a plane coming what I thought was toward National Airport, which is very close. You see that all the time," said Lyman, an Andover native. "But this one looked different. It was at a very steep angle, and going very fast.
"I had been hearing about the World Trade Center before I left, and wondered, is this part of that? Then the plane disappeared, smoke started coming up, and traffic came to a complete stop," Lyman said. "We all got out of our cars. We heard another couple of explosions, and I ran and got back in my car."
"The police came and had us drive back the wrong way on the highway."

Anonymous and unconfirmed. If CIT pulled these alleged witnesses out of the woodwork they would be laughed at. How can anonymous testimony be compared to recorded one on one interviews that CIT have carried out? It can't.




 Marra, David

Source: Media

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html

David Marra, 23, an information-technology specialist, had turned his BMW off an I-395 exit to the highway just west of the Pentagon when he saw an American Airlines jet swooping in, its wings wobbly, looking like it was going to slam right into the Pentagon: 

"It was 50 ft. off the deck when he came in. It sounded like the pilot had the throttle completely floored. The plane rolled left and then rolled right. Then he caught an edge of his wing on the ground." 

There is a helicopter pad right in front of the side of the Pentagon. The wing touched there, then the plane cartwheeled into the building.


http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8...74655-4,00.html

This guy's exact POV has never been found. The aircraft did not "cartwheel" and the Pentagon lawn was not marked by the "wing".

In fact the "cartwheel" statement isn't made by Marra but added by the journalist.





Martinez, Oscar

Source: Media

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
"I saw a big jet flying close to the building coming at full speed. There was a big noise when it hit the building,'' said Oscar Martinez, who witnessed the attack.

What "building"? Martinez describes hearing the explosion. That's it. Not a witness based on yet another ambiguous (and basically anonymous) media quote.





Mason, Don

Source: ASCE Report

Discussed here:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?showtopic=841

Not once is this guy directly quoted. It was a second hand account penned by the ASCE report.
The link above compares his alleged testimony compared to another ASCE "witness account". That of Frank Probst, who describes anything but an "SOC approach"





McAdams, Daniel and Cynthia

Source: Media

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Two other witnesses, Daniel McAdams and his wife, Cynthia, said they were sitting in their kitchen drinking coffee in their third-floor condominium in Arlington, Va., just two miles from the Pentagon when they heard a plane fly directly overhead around 9:45 a.m. It was unusually loud and low. Seconds later, they heard a big boom and felt the doors and windows of their three-story building shake. From their window, they could see a plume of black smoke coming from the Pentagon..

Not witnesses to aircraft or alleged impact.





McClain, Tom

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
Lt Col (ret) Tom McClain :"I saw the remains of the engines in the North parking lot of the Pentagon as well as melted aluminum and other debris left from the aircraft. "
http://www.geoffmetcalf.com/pentagon/penta...l_20020316.html

Did not witness flight of aircraft. Again with the unidentified parts and alleged engine in North Parking.





McClellan, Kenneth

Source: Media

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
The C-130 pilot 'followed the aircraft and reported it was heading into the Pentagon,' he said. 'He saw it crash into the building. He saw the fireball.

McClellan is a Pentagon spokesman and is not a witness. What he reported is actually false as well:
"I distinctly remember having a difficult time keeping the AA flight in sight after we turned back to the east to follow it per a request from Wash. Departure Control.   When I saw the initial explosion I was not able to see exactly where or what it had impacted, but remember trying to approximate a position to give to ATC.  It was then that I was able to see the sun reflecting off the Potomac and the runway at Wash. Nat'l and thought to myself that the AA flight must have had some sort of IFE (in flight emergency) and was trying to make it back to National Airport."
-C-130 Pilot Lt Col Steve O'Brien via email to Pilots for 9/11 Truth






McCoy, Steve

 fire captain on fire engine 101

Fire Captain Steve McCoy and his crew are traveling north on Interstate 395 in ACFD Engine 101, for a training session in Crystal City. McCoy reportedly sees “a commercial airliner in steep descent, banking sharply to its right before disappearing beyond the horizon,” followed by “a tremendous explosion” and “a massive plume of smoke and fire.” He immediately radioes ECC and reports, “We got a plane down, it looks like in the Crystal City area by the 14th Street Bridge.” Being aware of the attacks on the World Trade Center, he advises that the FBI should be notified, as this is a possible terrorist attack

14th Street Bridge:

"Traffic is normally slow right around the Pentagon as the road winds and we line up to cross the 14th Street bridge heading into the District of Columbia. I don't know what made me look up, but I did and I saw a very low-flying American Airlines plane that seemed to be accelerating. My first thought was just 'No, no, no, no,' because it was obvious the plane was not heading to nearby Reagan National Airport. It was going to crash."

14th Street Bridge:

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/3e07aadf.jpg

Where was she? If she saw the aircraft, she couldn't have been beyond Route 27 on the I-395 motorway that runs past the Pentagon towards the 14th Street Bridge.

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/888dbc85.jpg

In the extended media piece she says
Fire trucks started to appear so I and others on the road tried to move out of the way.

Were there firetrucks arriving along this section of motorway?

Her alleged POV needs to be established but her "it was going to crash" statement indicates that she had no view.

These are the views from the passenger seat along that stretch of highway

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e207/Mer...xit_008c_01.jpg

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e207/Mer...xit_008c_02.jpg

Remember, and this is crucial (and usually ignored by detractors), she is on record, as are multiple witnesses in this area, as saying that there was heavy traffic. the images above are of a virtually clear road.

Either way, her testimony is ambiguous and is most certainly open to bias.





McGraw, Stephen

Source: Media/CIT/Jeff Hill

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
"I was in the left hand lane with my windows closed. I did not hear anything at all until the plane was just right above our cars." McGraw estimates that the plane passed about 20 feet over his car, as he waited in the left hand lane of the road, on the side closest to the Pentagon. "The plane clipped the top of a light pole just before it got to us, injuring a taxi driver, whose taxi was just a few feet away from my car. "I saw it crash into the building," he said. "My only memories really were that it looked like a plane coming in for a landing. I mean in the sense that it was controlled and sort of straight. That was my impression," he said. "There was an explosion and a loud noise and I felt the impact. I remember seeing a fireball come out of two windows (of the Pentagon). I saw an explosion of fire billowing through those two windows.

On closer inspection, this guy's testimony isn't as clear cut as what was printed.

The worker, William Middleton Sr., was running his street sweeper through the cemetery when he heard a harsh whistling sound overhead. Middleton looked up and spotted a commercial jet whose pilot seemed to be fighting with his own craft. Middleton said the plane was no higher than the tops of telephone poles as it lurched toward the Pentagon. The jet accelerated in the final few hundred yards before it tore into the building.

Q: Wait, let me ask you for that. You said you saw it circling. Like, where was it circling?

Q: Like halfway up?

A: Right here. It wasn't that high up.


Q: Ok.

A: And it was going around.

Q: Going around.

A: Right. Like it was coming around through the pattering, to go over to National Airport.

Q: How long, how long did you see it circling for? Like, estimate.

A: Um, 'bout five minutes. It took about five minutes for it to go around.

Q: Oh, so it was a few minutes. You saw it--- Oh, ok.

A: He kicked the throttle. When I looked, went straight into the building.

"I was right underneath the plane," said Kirk Milburn, a construction supervisor for Atlantis Co., who was on the Arlington National Cemetery exit of Interstate 395 when he said he saw the plane heading for the Pentagon. "I heard a plane. I saw it. I saw debris flying. I guess it was hitting light poles," said Milburn.

"I could now only see the tail of the aircraft. I believe I saw the tail dip slightly to the right indicating a minor turn in that direction. The tail was barely visible when I saw the flash and subsequent fireball rise approximately 200 feet above the Pentagon. There was a large explosion noise and the low frequency sound echo that comes with this type of sound. Associated with that was the increase in air pressure, momentarily, like a small gust of wind. For those formerly in the military, it sounded like a 2000lb bomb going off roughly 1/2 mile in front of you.

"A silver, twin-engine American Airlines jetliner gliding almost noiselessly over the Navy Annex, fast, low and straight toward the Pentagon, just hundreds of yards away. It was a nightmare coming to life. The plane, with red and blue markings, hurtled by and within moments exploded in a ground-shaking "whoomp" as it appeared to hit the side of the Pentagon. A huge flash of orange flame and black smoke poured into the sky. Smoke seemed to change from black to white, forming a billowing column in the sky."
http://www.navytimes.com/story.php?f=1-292925-467181.php

From his description of events ("hurtled by"), he has passed the Pentagon on the I-395 motorway that runs along beside the south parking lot to the bottom of the following overhead image:

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/37cf4970.jpg

Given that he claims that the aircraft "appear[ed] to hit the side of the Pentagon" and lack of description we can deduce that he is not a witness to an alleged impact.

"The plane exploded after it hit, the tail came off and it began burning immediately. Within five minutes, police and emergency vehicles began arriving," said Vin Narayanan, a reporter at USA TODAY.com, who was driving near the Pentagon when the plane hit.
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2001/09/11/washscene.htm

He also said this:
"At 9:35 a.m., I pulled alongside the Pentagon. With traffic at a standstill, my eyes wandered around the road, looking for the cause of the traffic jam. Then I looked up to my left and saw an American Airlines jet flying right at me. The jet roared over my head, clearing my car by about 25 feet. The tail of the plane clipped the overhanging exit sign above me as it headed straight at the Pentagon.

"The windows were dark on American Airlines Flight 77 as it streaked toward its target, only 50 yards away."

"The hijacked jet slammed into the Pentagon at a ferocious speed. But the Pentagon's wall held up like a champ. It barely budged as the nose of the plane curled upwards and crumpled before exploding into a massive fireball..... I think I saw the bodies of passengers burning. But I'm not sure. It could have been Pentagon workers. It could have been my mind playing tricks on me."
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/...rst-person.htm

And this:
Vin: Actually, that huge fireball exploded right toward me. I was on the road right next to where the American Airlines jet hit Pentagon wall. That wall is about 50 yards from the road. I was listening to the WTC coverage as well when I looked up to the left and saw a plane flying at my car. At first, I thought it was heading toward National just to get out of the air. But the closer it got, the more it looked like it was going to hit my car. The tail of the jet clipped an overhanging exit sign above me on it's way down. Then it slammed into the Pentagon wall.
http://cgi1.usatoday.com/mchat/20020909002/tscript.htm

There is a recurring theme throughout the witness pool (allegedly) within the Pentagon basin. They describe everything bar the official path. Specifically those who found themselves on Route 27 (the road the runs in front of the alleged impact side)

Aldo Marquis phoned Vin Narayanan (@27:50mins)

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3383333411025014760#
27:50 :

ALDO: So you were under an overhead sign. Correct?

NARANYAN: ..I was under an exit sign, basically..I was just before the exit sign..the exit sign was on the approach.

ALDO: And you say the tail actually hit the sign?

NARANYAN: It clipped it..

(...)

ALDO: So did you see it clip any lightpoles?

NARANYAN : No, it didn't clip any lightpoles or anything like that.. it didn't clip any lightpoles, just the exit sign.

So where was he and how does his description fit in with the official path and impact?

Was he referring to the exit sign that is just before the poles on the official path?

http://i25.tinypic.com/6z7fyd.jpg

He saw no lightpoles being struck. He was adamant (even indignant) about that.
He also claimed that there were no trees obstructing his view.

These are the trees Aldo was referring to with the exit sign he is supposedly referring to

And the best idea of the view:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOmrp-A8Vxk

The relevance of these details? Look at this overhead. He places himself supposedly before the first exit sign where the trees are.

http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/9001/el...perspective.jpg

The official flightpath has the aircraft arriving from behind his perspective and not looking to his left (the official speed would have it covering this area between the Navy Annex and Route 27 in 2 seconds!). The trees would most definitely have been at least within his line of view. And how would the fireball explode "right toward" him?

He had to be further up the road where the NOC witnesses drew their paths.

http://i27.tinypic.com/akxxy8.jpg

His description of the nose "curling up", the "tail" falling off, and seeing "passengers burning", like his story, is journalistic embellishment.

E mail from O'Brien to Rob Balsamo
"I distinctly remember having a difficult time keeping the AA flight in sight after we turned back to the east to follow it per a request from Wash. Departure Control.   When I saw the initial explosion I was not able to see exactly where or what it had impacted, but remember trying to approximate a position to give to ATC.  It was then that I was able to see the sun reflecting off the Potomac and the runway at Wash. Nat'l and thought to myself that the AA flight must have had some sort of IFE (in flight emergency) and was trying to make it back to National Airport."
-C-130 Pilot Lt Col Steve O'Brien via email to Pilots for 9/11 Truth

Did not see alleged impact even though he's constantly labelled as an "impact witness".

"There was a burst of orange flame that shot out that I could see through the highway overpass. Then it was just black. Just black thick smoke. The eeriest thing about it, was that it was like you were watching a movie. There was no huge explosion, no huge rumbling on ground, it just went 'pfff'. It wasn't what I would have expected for a plane that was not much more than a football field away from me.

This is the stretch of road he's presumably referring to:

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...c741216bafb.jpg

Remember that there allegedly was heavy traffic on these lanes, that the Streetview camera is 1 meter above the car and that the POV in the image is from the entrance to the Pentagon parking lot, so he'd have to be in the next lanes over.

Could not physically see alleged impact and his description reinforces this.





Owens, Mary Ann

"Gripping the steering wheel of my vibrating car, I involuntarily ducked as the wobbling plane thundered over my head. Once it passed, I raised slightly and grimaced as the left wing dipped and scraped the helicopter area just before the nose crashed into the southwest wall of the Pentagon. Still gripping the wheel, I could feel both the car and my heart jolt at the moment of impact."

She originally said
Gannett News Service employee Mary Ann Owens was stopped in traffic on the road that runs past the Pentagon, listening on the radio to the news of the World Trade Center attacks, when she heard a loud roar overhead and looked up as the plane barely cleared the highway. "Instantly I knew what was happening, and I involuntarily ducked as the plane passed perhaps 50 to 75 feet above the roof of my car at great speed," Owens said. "The plane slammed into the west wall of the Pentagon. The impact was deafening. The fuselage hit the ground and blew up."
http://www.delawareonline.com/newsjournal/...rspreadsto.html

According to the official story the aircraft took 1.3 seconds from Route 27 to the facade. 0.4 seconds to cross the lawn. At what point did she duck within this timeframe? And where was she on the road?

"saw a plane crash into the building."

That's it. Another unconfirmed second hand media one-liner allegedly from an arms dealer go-between..





Patterson, Steve

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...sses/sgydk.html
Steve Patterson, who lives in Pentagon City,..a commuter jet swooped over Arlington National Cemetery and headed for the Pentagon...The plane was about 150 yards away, approaching from the west about 20 feet off the ground, Patterson said.

He said the plane, which sounded like the high-pitched squeal of a fighter jet, flew over Arlington cemetary so low that he thought it was going to land on I-395. He said it was flying so fast that he couldn't read any writing on the side. The plane, which appeared to hold about eight to 12 people,

Another second hand truncated account from somebody that CIT can't find to interview. His alleged testimony is bizarre.

First, "flew over Arlington Cemetery" which is NOC. 
Thing is, this guy also describes a commuter jet flying "20 feet agl...150 yards" from his apartment in Pentagon City. Many of the "small plane" witnesses were either viewing from a distance or were misquoted by the media (Campos), so what's this guy's excuse if it allegedly flew close by (depending on how you take the testimony!)?

I've placed his alleged POV at the building closest to I-395 (and I've taken his description literally)

The witnessed path (esp. Boger and Middleton) vs the official path:

http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/9882/an...76104122030.jpg

Patterson's second hand account then continues..
Then, he said, he saw the Pentagon "envelope" the plane and bright orange flames shoot out the back of the building.

The "back"? 

An interesting story about this alleged witness. 

It was originally posted at 5pm on September 11th by the Washington Post by Barbara Vobejda. On asking her for contact details:

"Joel Skousen of  'World Affairs Brief' reported that: "I have, so far, been unable to locate a Steven Patterson in the Pentagon City area of Arlington, Va. None of the graphic design firms in the area that I called have heard of him.
Barbara Vobejda told me she didn't have a contact number for him
..."
and that his testimony was received by "one of the dozens of "stringers" they had out in the field that day interviewing people on the ground."

A reporter or photographer can "string" for a news organization in a number of different capacities and with varying degrees of regularity, so that the relationship between the organization and the stringer is typically very loose. When it is difficult for a staff reporter or photographer to reach a location quickly for breaking news stories, larger news organizations often rely on local stringers to provide rapid scene descriptions, quotations or photos. In this capacity, stringers are used heavily by most television news organizations and some print publications for video footage, photos, and interviews.

Unconfirmed and to all extents and purposes, anonymous, contradictory testimony on every level.





 Perkal, Don

"My colleagues felt the impact, which reminded them of an earthquake. People shouted in the corridor outside that a bomb had gone off upstairs on the main concourse in the building. No alarms sounded. I walked to my office, shut down my computer, and headed out. Even before stepping outside I could smell the cordite. Then I knew explosives had been set off somewhere. I looked to my right and saw a raging fire and smoke careening off the facade to the sky. (...) Two explosions, a few minutes apart, prompted me to start walking. "

He was inside the building. Not a witness.
Interestingly he is a "cordite" and "bomb" witness.





Perry, Scott

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...sses/sgydk.html
Scott Perry of Spotsylvania County heard a plane's engines rumbling above the Navy Annex building where he works, so he looked out his window, which faces the Pentagon

"[The plane] was coming straight into the wedge," Perry said. "I saw it crash. There was about five seconds of disbelief, and the next thing I heard was, down the hallway, a friend of mine screaming."
http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/200...rinter_friendly

Another alleged "over the Annex" audio witness.

Albert Hemphill claims to have been in an office at the Navy Annex facing the Pentagon:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/CIT/index.php?s...opic=1704&st=0&

He is also adamant that he saw an "impact" but he was just as adamant that the aircraft "flew right over the top"of the Navy Annex. He was also adamant that the aircraft flew "closer to Arlington Cemetery". Even when Jeffrey Hill sabotaged CIT's contact with this person, he still insisted that the aircraft flew "over the top" of Citgo.

Hill and his friends claimed that it was a "perspective issue" but this is impossible when looked at from an aeriel perspective:

http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/604/hemphilllos.jpg

At what point would the aircraft have appeared to have been over the Citgo gas station along the official path?

He corroborates Boger who was sitting opposite his POV in the heliport.

Perry's (second hand) claim that the aircraft went over the Annex certainly doesn't contradict NOC but a more detailed interview would be interesting. 

Needs further investigation. 





Peterson, Christine

http://911research.wtc7.net/pentagon/evide...esses/bart.html
"I was at a complete stop on the road in front of the helipad at the Pentagon; what I had thought would be a shortcut was as slow as the other routes I had taken that morning. I looked idly out my window to the left -- and saw a plane flying so low I said, "holy cow, that plane is going to hit my car" (not my actual words). The car shook as the plane flew over. It was so close that I could read the numbers under the wing. And then the plane crashed. My mind could not comprehend what had happened. Where did the plane go? For some reason I expected it to bounce off the Pentagon wall in pieces. But there was no plane visible,"

Christine Peterson places herself "on the road in front of the helipad". What needs confirmed is whether she was referring to that stretch of road or directly in front of the helipad itself

http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/9001/el...perspective.jpg

As stated before, the terms "looking (idly) to the left" and "coming straight at" a witness from Route 27, don't tally with the official flightpath. One rule of thumb that I use for motorists allegedly on this stretch of motorway is to use the image above and try to place them on the road using their testimony.

Her testimony points to her seeing the aircraft approach looking through her driver side window, that it flew relatively close to her car, and in front of her.

Further investigation needed.

"I was actually sitting in traffic on route 110 on my way to work ..and it was an AA plane that came in and hit the Pentagon..I saw the plane actually come up the I-395..and it went over the horizon and then 
just came back in front of a bridge where I was sitting and I knew it was going to hit...and the next thing there was a huge explosion, black smoke everywhere..
 

Here is Route 110 which runs behind the Pentagon (to the right of the image):

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/6bde86da.jpg

There are the only two bridges on Route 110 within which the Navy Annex and Route 27 may be seen (at a distance). The North face of the Pentagon is in the foreground. The South face and most of South Parking is out of view until the driver is beyond the mound on the left. Remember the Streetview Cam is 1 metre above the car roof.

http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/9310/peen.png

What is strange is that he says "it went over the horizon and then just came back". It went out of his view? How so if the plane followed the official path?

Here's the aeriel view of this area from January 2002:

[URL=http://www.terraserver.com?tid=21&cx=321993&cy=4304267&proj=32618&mpp=0.5&pic=img&prov=gx19&stac=586]http://www.terraserver.com?tid=21&cx=32199...v=gx19&stac=586[/URL]

Screencap of above:

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/a32e6bc4.jpg

The mound was there. And so were a few trees lining the road.

The only other vantage point of the area is here (which has the same mounds leading up to the bridge - look at the cars to garner an idea of the POV from this area):

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...a8eae718c0d.jpg

The additional problem with both?

He claimed to work "across the street" and that he had nearly arrived. Both views above are from northbound lanes which go by the Potomac River over a bridge towards Washington and there are no offices along those lanes.

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/6bde86da.jpg

He'd have to be driving southbond towards Crystal City away from the Pentagon and towards the office buildings seen along the bottom of the following image (south to Crystal City):

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...befabc7d3b6.jpg


Either way, he couldn't physically see the alleged impact zone. And his confusing description ("horizon..came back in..") demonstrates why detailed interviews are necessary before drawing any conclusions.

"I was unaware at this time that the World Trade center had been attacked so I thought this was "just" a troubled plane en route to the airport. I started to run toward my front door but the plane was going so fast at this point that it only took 4 or 5 seconds before I heard a tremendously loud crash and books on my shelves started tumbling to the floor.

Interviewed by CIT

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBT-f2Px1wA
 I noticed the, um, airplane (nice size plane) was coming in. And it was like--- It may have been about no more than three feet about the Navy Annex, when it was coming across from that. And from my understanding, I heard that the airplane was heading down from Columbia Pike. Used that route. When the plane was coming across the, uh, the Navy Annex, it was actually like in between where the monument... the US Air Force Memorial? It's like in between that and where you see like the litttle tower thing that's stickin' up from the other side there. It was only about three feet above that.

Edit: image of area he's describing:

http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u422/c...tu/de8c3a8a.jpg

[...]

A: And, um, as it was angling, it was looking like it was coming over here for the buildings where we are over here.

Q: So it was right on top of the Navy Annex.

A: It was on top of the Navy Annex.

Q: And it looked like it was headed towards...

A: It looked like it was headed towards this way. Towards Arlington Cemetery. We were thinking it was gonna-- 'Ah, man, it's on it's way towards this way.' And it looked like--- And the way the plane was comin'...

Q: Here, use this model plane...

Edit: gifs of what he described:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a327/lyt...riusangling.gif

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a327/lyt.../darius4gif.gif

[...]

A: We didn't get to see the plane go into the building, but, if you put it about--- This is 2008, that was 2001. Seven years ago, those trees were a little smaller than that. So you could see a little bit more in between there, and what was going on. But, nobody was really looking. At the time it was heading there, nobody was really trying to look see if it actually was goin' hit the bujilding or not hit the building. So everybody was running in the opposite direction for their lives. Then, when I heard that... that loud boom, I was like, man. I was, well, what next was goin' happen, and then when I got up, came on back out.

"I was standing on the sidewalk (parallel to the site of impact)...and I saw this plane coming right at me at what seemed like 300 miles an hour. I dove towards the ground and watched this great big engine from this beautiful airplane just vaporize," said Frank Probst, a member of the Pentagon renovations crew commented. "It looked like a huge fireball, pieces were flying out everywhere."
