This rather distasteful conspiracy theory deals with the apparrent lack of recognizable airplane parts at the site of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon. Apparently this means that it wasn’t a plane at all but a car bomb, and the whole thing is being covered up for some nefarious reason. :rolleyes:
I suppose I’m posting this just because I’m a little annoyed at the condescending tone of the site… because it looks pretty easy to debunk:
Where’s the plane? Plane full of fuel. Plane explode. No more plane.
How does a big Boeing 757 moving that fast only damage the outside of the Pentagon? The Pentagon’s a pretty solid building. Might explain why there aren’t any big plane parts left, you think?
Why couldn’t the fire officials answer two questions posed by journalists about the wreckage? Well, jeez, guys, the questions were asked on September 12, you might think there might still be a little bit of forensic work left to do.
What’s with the sand and gravel being spread over the lawn? I don’t know, but why would they do this if it were a car bomb?
Anything I’ve missed?
(btw, since I’ve forgotten nearly everything I learned in high school French, I don’t know what the rest of the site is about. There is the distinct possiblity I’m being whooshed by a poor attempt at humor.)
