Pentagon

(Warning: if you're particularly sensitive about 9/11 conspiracy theories, this post might annoy you. Don't read it.)

This was going to be a GIP (isn't the icon fab? We loves it...) but I've just heard that they're going to release the video of Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon. Which will be interesting, because it *not* hitting the Pentagon was one of the conspiracy theories I was most inclined to believe. Hunt the Boeing is only one of many sites showing the alleged paucity of evidence that a large jet went anywhere near the place. So the video will be nice, but does anyone think it'll actually change the minds of the more major conspiracy theorists? They'll just assume it's a government fake...

(The other one I worry about is Flight 93, "brought down by heroic civilians". In real life, I think it's far more likely to have been shot down. Which is why my reaction to the movie is one of mild amusement.)

Major conspiracy theorists haven't got minds to change.

I was never convinced by "Hunt the Boeing". If you look at question #5, "Can you explain what happened to the wings of the aircraft and why they caused no damage?" you can see that the damage caused by the wings is perfectly visible in the photograph, just where it should be.
