Arlington Topography, Obstacles Make American 77 Final Leg Impossible

Arlington Topography, Obstacles Make American 77 Final Leg Impossible

By Rob Balsamo, Pilots For 9/11 Truth

03/13/08 - "Beware The Ides Of March" could not be a more appropriate introduction to this article as it appears the government story regarding the events at the pentagon is officially dead. Thanks to the hard work done by Citizen Investigation Team, they alerted us to review figures regarding topography and obstacles along the flight path of American 77 according to the government story. Physically and aerodynamically, Arlington's unique topography and obstacles along American 77 "final leg" to the pentagon make this approach completely impossible as we will demonstrate.

According to the government, American 77 final approach to the pentagon is depicted below.

9/11 And Air America

9/11 And Air America

by Shelton F. Lankford, Pilots For 9/11 Truth

When I signed up for the first Air America cruise, one of my goals was to challenge the open-minded, progressive listeners and radio hosts on 9/11 Truth, or rather the lack of it in their program content. My elevator speech was to the effect that, by attacking all the monsters that have been unleashed by the Bush administration piecemeal - Iraq, Patriot Act, Spying, Torture, Rendition, gutting the Constitution, etc. , it was like attacking a giant squid by grappling with each of its tentacles individually. We don't have enough arms, strength, or endurance to do it. By ignoring 9/11, we, in effect, ignore the body and brain of the monster, and have no hope of defeating it. It isn't a point that is original with me, but I don't mind stealing in an emergency - this is it.

Imagine my elation when one of the hosts, Richard Greene, to whom I had never listened, stood up in the introductory panel and said words to the effect that in order to stop the crimes that are ongoing and that are stealing our country away from us, we must confront and expose 9/11 as a false flag operation. I leapt to my feet and applauded wildly. I was joined by several others. I don't think he was prepared for the response his statement got, and he rapidly set up an impromptu session to show Zeitgeist, Part II and hold a discussion about the issue tonight.

Conflicting Data, Hardcore Questions and the Media Blackout

Conflicting Data, Hardcore Questions and the Media Blackout

by Rob Balsamo, Pilots For 9/11 Truth

02/29/08 - It almost goes without saying that when a major aviation accident occurs, just the fact that "Black Box" data has been released to the public makes mainstream news, not to mention content and analysis. Recently, the Flight Data Recorder information claimed to be from American 77 (AA77, Pentagon) and United 93 (UA93, Shanksville, PA) has been released to the public via the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA). Mainstream Media (and some alternative media) has not reported even the release of this information for such a high profile event. Why? It is interesting to note, CNN has reported an animation made by an independent researcher regarding the events at the Pentagon. The animation supports the government story of an aircraft impact with the pentagon. However, it is not based on any flight data. Why does CNN/Mainstream Media cover an animation based on zero flight data, but does not cover even the release of government provided flight data or the animation constructed and released by The National Transportation Safety Board? Perhaps someone doesn't want to raise curiosity of the content?

Cross-post and discussion here....

I've been meaning to put this together for awhile now as there has been alot of disinfo out there regarding AA77 FDR positional data. I was finally able to finish it up today and upload it during the Super Bowl (Yeah Giants!).

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - Jan 21, 2008

Today we celebrate the life of one of the greatest activists in American History. People often ask us, "If elements within our own govt had a hand in 9/11, why do they let you live?". The simple answer is, It is true one can become more powerful in death, than life. The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his work, those he effected in his time and for generations to come, will live on forever.

Today is a great day to take some time and learn about a man who saw something very wrong with the world and stood up to say, Enough is Enough!, and literally changed the world....

"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. "

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. "

Dr Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

Japanese Senator Questions 9/11

Japanese Senator Questions 9/11
By Alan Miller

On January 11th 2008, Fujita Yukihisa made a 30 minute presentation at the House of Councillors (equivalent to the U.S. Senate). He directly questioned the official version of 9/11 in a session with Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda Yasuo and members of his Cabinet.

Fujita is a member of the opposition party, Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). He was elected to the House of Councillors in 2007. He is a former Member of the House of Representative and Former Vice Director General of the International Department of the Democratic Party of Japan.

Fujita emphasized that there was never an official police investigation into the deaths of the 24 Japanese citizens who were killed on 9/11.

He stated that many in the US doubt the official version of 9/11 and numerous individuals have collected evidence that contradicts the government's version, which can be seen on many websites.

During his speech, an aide showed several larges photos of:
- the Pentagon entry and exit hole and a scale overlay of a 757
- the flight path towards the Pentagon
- the WTC Twin Towers exploding
- the WTC 7 collapse

I've been meaning to put this together for some time now... here are a few... feel free to add more in the same context...

Happy New Year! (im sure it is going to be a happy one for the above)

Location of American 77 Flight Data Recorder - Part II

11/30/07 - Many may recall an article we published regarding location of American Airlines Flight 77 Flight Data Recorder (AA 77 FDR: in which we expose the govt story of the flight data recorder being found at the entrance hole and exit hole. Since the article has been published, the MSNBC article we sourced ( no longer exists and now redirects to an irrelevant Newsweek page ( Why would MSNBC want to remove a page which explains the recovery of AA 77 FDR? Is it because we exposed the conflicting reports of location? It gets deeper.

Popular Mechanics sources a quote from Allyn E. Kilsheimer who states;

The Flight Data Recorder information does not support the govt story. When asked, the FBI and NTSB refuse to comment. Recordings can be found at our site. This should raise a serious eyebrow for any journalist who has respect for his work.

NTSB Cites Tax Case Law As Refusal To Answer Questions

NTSB Cites Tax Case Law As Refusal To Answer Questions


A prominent 9/11 Researcher and colleague of Pilots For 9/11 Truth, John Farmer, submitted a request to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) seeking answers for the various discrepancies within the American Airlines Flight 77 Flight Data Recorder. The NTSB responded in the form of case law as an excuse and precedent to not address the questions raised regarding the information the NTSB provided through the FOIA which does not support the govt story. It is no surpise one case the NTSB sources is a tax case seeking recent federal tax court rulings. Click picture for full article.
