A Cigar hit the Pentagon

Fidel Castro has weighed in on the deceptions of the American government to the American people concerning the events of September 11 (a pattern of deception now confirmed by no less than Kean and Hamilton, who of course knew they were being deceived, chose to do nothing about it, and are now making a lame attempt to protect their reputations, such as they are; note the interview with Hamilton by a surprisingly well-prepared Evan Solomon of the CBC, with questions Hamilton would never get from the American media).  What can we say about Fidel?  He’s obviously one of the smartest guys in the world.  When he goes out of his way to write something, he’s always right, and often profound (note his recent  bit on biofuels).  He has no interest in undermining the search for the truth about September 11 (just the opposite, actually).  Unlike every other person who has written about September 11, he has his own personal intelligence agency, on all accounts a very good one (it has kept him alive in the face of American attacks for decades!).

With all that going for him, it is interesting what he chose to focus on:

“In an essay read by a Cuban television presenter on Tuesday night, Castro said the Pentagon was hit by a rocket, not a plane, because no traces were found of its passengers.

‘Today one knows there was deliberate misinformation,’ wrote Castro, who has not appeared in public since July of 2006 when life-threatening surgery for a secret illness forced him to hand over power to his brother Raul Castro.

‘Studying the impact of planes, similar to those that hit the Twin Towers, that had accidentally fallen on densely populated cities, one concludes that it was not a plane that crashed into the Pentagon,’ Castro said.

‘Only a projectile could have caused the geometrically round hole that allegedly was made by the plane,’ he said.

‘We were fooled like the rest of the planet's inhabitants,’ he wrote.”

According to the hierarchy of conspiracy theories, the Pentacrash theories are supposed to be the stupidest ones.  I need to write more about this hierarchy, as it seems to be deeply flawed.  Meanwhile, people are still backing the Official Story on the Pentacrash based on research done by . . . wait for it! . . . the Pentagon.  So the people who fired the missile have scientific proof that it was Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon.  You have to laugh.

Meanwhile, it has been technically confirmed that the dark-beard bin Laden video is a fake, with a different audio track – the part containing recent events – over the portions when the video froze, and the investigator cannot rule out a vocal imitator doing the frozen-frame audio.  They appear to have taken an old homily by bin Laden urging American to convert to Islam (no taxes! – he sounds like a Republican!) made at a time when he indeed had a black beard, and edited it to make it appear to be a new tape.  Perhaps bin Laden isn’t around to make a new tape.
