Ummm...that's it? If anything, this newly released footage seems to prove that it was a missile that hit the Pentagon, not Flight 77. True, there is something white and vaguely phallic entering from the right in the two videos, but only the power of suggestion that it's a "plane" would make you think it's a plane. It doesn't look big enough to be a jumbo jet, if you ask me.

Alex Jones at Prison Planet seems to think (hat tip to Techno Slavery and MC Sly-G)that the release of this video is part of a Pentagon psychological operation to set up a strawman for the government to knock down. I think he might be right. So I'll say this about the Pentagon video: there's something there, but a jumbo jet? Doesn't look like one to me.

Or Was It A Plane?

But, now that I think about it, the squad car that appears to drive up the lawn after the impact gives one an idea of the scale involved. The trees on the horizon aren't obscured as much by the car as they are by the "plane"--let's call it a "projectile." But the car is not in the air and the projectile is. So that would account for more obscurity of the horizon trees.

It Doesn't Really Matter

As Alex Jones again points out, whether a plane did hit the Pentagon or not, it doesn't do any damage to the argument that 9/11 was not what the official story makes it out to be. What about the collapse due to fire of 3 concrete and steel buildings into their own footprints on the same day, which has never happened before or since?

As I write this, it seems clearer to me that Jones is right--this is a straw man intended to cause 9/11 Truth seekers to express their vindication about there being no plane at the Pentagon and then show them and the movement to be fools with future "newly released" video from better cameras and more angles.

So long story short, these new videos neither validate the official story nor invalidate the arguments of the 9/11 Truth movement.

Am farily baffled by the video. I still don't belive that a 757 hit the Pentagon. I'd like to post you some pictures but I don't know how to do that in a comment. At any rate you should google image "missile" and do a separate image search for "757" you'll find images of both. Take a large clear image of a 757 (facing to the left and at as similar an angle as the Pentagon video) if you can find it, and compare it to the image in the Pentagon video. Notice the wings in the video. The are at a forward facing angle (or appear to be so) pointing just forward to the roof of the front of the craft. Then look at the wings of a 757, the appear to point backwards towards the back of the aircraft. Am scratching my head.
