A FOIA request for the AA77 flight into the Pentagon has resulted in a Declaration by Special Agent Jacqueline Maguire who determined, under penalty of perjury, that the FBI possessed 85 videotapes related to the events of 9/11 at the Pentagon. Of these she determined (without viewing them) that 56 "did not show either the Pentagon building, the Pentagon crash site, or the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001." She then viewed the remaining 29 videotapes of which 16 "did not show the Pentagon crash site and did not shoe the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon". Of the remaining 13 videotapes, "which did show the Pentagon crash site, 12 videotapes only showed the Pentagon after the impact of Flight 77." Only "one videotape showed the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon". She determined that this video was neither the one from the Citgo gas station in Arlington, which was confiscated shortly after the explosion in the Pentagon, nor that from the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington.
The public is now asked to believe that among the hundreds of security video cameras surrounding the Pentagon, only one recorded the impact of the aircraft. This video apparently was released some time ago and shown in the media, showing only a white stripe which does not allow to establish the nature of the stripe. None of the 56 videotapes which Special Agent Maguire has not viewed has been released.
The Pentagon has fought fiercely to prevent the release of any of the Pentagon videotapes by claiming that such release would adversely affect the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. This argument was ludicrous at the time and is now entirely irrelevant. Yet, the Pentagon refuses to release these videotapes.
Of what is the Pentagon afraid?
