Written and directed by Sharon Petzold and Tony Bacon in 2016, this 54-minute documentary depicts the terrible attack on the Pentagon.
Survivors tell their stories, many for the first time.
First responders recount their battle with a jet-fueled inferno that came dangerously close to shutting down the National Military Command Center---the country's nerve center for military operations.
Amazing and heart-wrenching!

This won't make the conspiracy theorists happy but it did have some stories worth following and remembering.

Not much to be learned from this.
Sadly, one must always piece together the various bits to make sense: on 9/10/01, the Pentagon comptroller announces at a regular news conference that auditors [DIA's Financial Management group] have found $2.3 trillion in unaccounted for missing DoD funds.
At 2:00 AM an email goes out for that same Financial Management team to meet at 9:00 AM that morning [9/11/01] at the conference room by the Pentagon's west wall - - which will shortly be crashed into dead center by Flight 77.
One lady who worked offsite and most fortunately overslept that day, came into the office lat to discover the email sent at 2:00 AM that very morning, arrived late for the meeting, able to see Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon from several blocks away - - she was therefore one of the few survivors, most of that Financial Management auditing team were killed, with the remainder seriously injured.
Aboard Flight 77 were several unique individuals, including a physicist with the Naval Surface Warfare Center who had the year previously worked on a project to ascertain the feasibility of destroying targeted buildings with interleaving nanothermite with fiber optics cabling, then after installation of said fiber optic cabling, igniting with a laser pulse.
Curiously, the four days preceding 9/11 the top 20 to 40 floors of both WTC Towers had fiber optics cabling installed [still dark cable, not yet powered up] by EurekaGGN, then owned by Apollo Asset Management, one of whose directors was Cheryl Gordon Krongard, wife of the executive director of the CIA, Buzz Krongard. The fiber optic cabling installed in the WTC Towers was pumped through their existing HVAC system, which would have been the exact points to set any explosives had a controlled demolition been designed for such.
Odd that anyone would aim for the Pentagon's west wall, which had been reinforced the year before according to the civil engineering journal, Structure. To do the most damage, one would have more easily flown in from above to crash into the roof of the Pentagon - - to take out Rumsfeld and the senior staff, one would have aimed for the other end of the Pentagon - - the primary objective of such incredible flying appears to have been the Financial Management group's meeting.

This is the inside story of the event that changed the American people forever, the event that proved to the world that regardless of the attacks that you guys can send us, we will continue to run this Country with pride!
