A bit more on Depleted Uranium and September 11:

  1. I have noted that the holes left in the Pentagon are exactly the size and shape and placement of holes left in buildings that have suffered hits from cruise missiles.

  2. The reason that Depleted Uranium is so popular with missile engineers is that it has a tremendous ability to penetrate its target. It goes through metal or concrete relatively easily because it actually burns its way through, rather than relying on having to force through using its momentum (it is a 'spontaneous pyrophoric material'). That explains why the holes are so small and neat. The Depleted Uranium burns itself out in the process, leaving no visible remains, but a cloud of toxic dust.

  3. One noticeable aspect of a hit by a Depleted Uranium missile is a white flash. Such a flash can be seen on stills of the Pentagon crash released from a supposed surveillance video.

  4. One of the mysteries of September 11 is why supposed pilot Hani Hanjour, who had had trouble flying a Cessna two weeks before, decided to make an almost 270 degree turn around the Pentagon in order to hit it on the south-west wall. Not only did he greatly increase the difficulty of his flight, but he left himself unnecessarily open to some kind of anti-aircraft Pentagon defense. Since he was flying down the Potomac River anyway, why didn't he just fly directly into the north wall of the Pentagon (depicted on the right side of this picture or this picture, with a nice approach right over the Pentagon Athletic Center), which was literally directly in front of him as he came down the river?

  5. The missile that hit the Pentagon did not strike at a 90 degree angle, but came in more obliquely. If you draw a line from the Pentagon at the angle of the hit straight back into Virginia, you eventually cross the northern part of . . . Quantico U. S. Marine Corps Base, an excellent place from which to launch a trailer-mounted cruise missile (Fort Belvoir is also a possibility).

  6. An entrepreneurial law firm might want to set up some kind of survey to determine whether surviving Pentagon employees and rescue and clean-up workers suffer from an unusually high level of diseases associated with exposure to Depleted Uranium dust.

  7. I don't have much to say about the rather silly debunking effort of Popular Mechanics (Popular Mechanics? How low can you go? I guess the Weekly World News wouldn't print such drivel) except:

    • I've been over this before and won't repeat myself, but there is only one possible hole in the wall before it collapsed, something you can determine by lining up pictures of the vehicles in front of the Pentagon from various angles, and that hole is no more than twenty feet wide;

    • the wing could not possibly have touched the ground, as the ground is pristine; and

    • the fact that the Powers That Be find it necessary to attempt a debunking exercise, no matter how lame, means that they're getting nervous, and follows a pattern we've seen in all recent American conspiracies from JFK on down.

  8. Construction of the Pentagon began on September 11, 1941.

Don't think this issue is over. It's just getting started!
