Scientists for 9/11 Truth and the International Center for 9/11 Studies will be sponsoring a “Conference on the 9/11 Pentagon Evidence” on May 4 in Denver, Colorado. To date we have one co-sponsor: Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance. Other groups are invited to co-sponsor this event.

The 9/11 Truth Movement’s strongest and most rigorously verified evidence-based theory is the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.

By contrast, the Truth Movement’s most contentious and divisive issue has been the question of what happened at the Pentagon. The early study of the Pentagon was plagued by lack of information and misinformation, much of which has persisted. But even though we now have more evidence, most current theories fail to address the full range of evidence, especially that which supports large plane impact. Why? For all of us, anchoring and confirmation bias make it hard to let go of initial impressions. The scientific method requires us to challenge our biases as we seek truth.

A key word for this conference is “evidence.” Addressing all of the currently known relevant evidence is a crucial component of the scientific process – a process in which anyone can participate. The goal is to put all of the evidence on the table, not to end discussion, but to be the basis for ongoing discussion. We believe the current evidence supports large plane impact of the Pentagon. Scientific conclusions remain fluid, however, so all research remains open to critique.

The goals of this conference are to present current evidence that any viable theory must address and to put the discussion of what happened at the Pentagon on a solid scientific footing to make our movement as strong as possible. If the Truth Movement ever gets real traction in a court of law or with society at large, we will be attacked at our weakest point. Our adversaries are very powerful and have the media at their beck and call. If we are shown to be in disarray on such a major issue as the Pentagon, our good work proving demolition at the World Trade Center might well be ignored. Thus we welcome your participation in this conference and your questions as we continue in the search for truth.

The invited speakers at this event are, in alphabetical order, David Chandler, Wayne Coste, Ken Jenkins, Warren Stutt, and John D. Wyndham, all of whom have done active scientific research on the evidence at the Pentagon. We invite you to join us in Denver on May 4 and/or help us defray the costs by contributing financially through our GoFundMe account. The event will be videotaped.

We invite 9/11 Truth organizations and individuals to co-sponsor this event. Sponsorship does not imply endorsement of the particular conclusions of the various presenters, but implies support for the goals and process that are being advocated. Let us know if you or your group would like to be listed as a co-sponsor.

How did this event go?

Does anyone know how this conference went? Was it well attended? Were the presentations well received? I was wondering, since I haven't seen anything about it on the Net.

Conference on the 9/11 Pentagon Evidence, Denver, CO,

The conference was sponsored by Scientists for 9/11 Truth and the International Center for 9/11 Studies Inc. and hosted by Colorado 9/11 Truth. Co-Sponsors were the Northern CA 9/11 Truth Alliance,, and

The conference was attended by about 50 people. Doors opened at 9 am, and at 9:30 am Fran Shure opened the conference with announcements, a show of hands (about half the audience had no fixed position on what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11), and a brief mention of attendees from out of state. These included Elizabeth Woodworth, Chris Gruener, Chris Sarns, Robin Hordon, Barbara Honegger and Bonnie Faulkner.

Following Fran Shure’s introduction, two videos were shown: a summary of Wayne Coste’s Pentagon research and an eight minute promotional version of the film The Pentagon Plane Puzzle by Ken Jenkins. These videos covered many aspects of the physical and eyewitness evidence that support large plane impact.

The morning session ended with a talk by Ken Jenkins titled “How We Got Here.” Jenkins’ talk traced the process, starting before the early writings of Thierry Meyssan, whereby many in the 9/11 truth movement arrived at the viewpoint that no large plane hit the Pentagon on 9/11. Jenkins then presented the many different ways in which viewpoints, although contradicted by evidence, entrench themselves in peoples’ minds. One noteworthy example was “Wishful Thinking.” This talk set the stage for the evidence presentations that followed.

After a lunch break, David Chandler gave his talk titled “Evidence for Large Plane Approach to the Pentagon.” In tracing the path of the large plane from the vicinity of the Sheraton Hotel to impact at the Pentagon west wall, Chandler showed, through newly-completed research, that damage to several impacted objects gave not only the previously known separation of the plane engines, but also the actual wingspan of the plane. Both distances match the dimensions of a Boeing 757-200, the plane type used for AA Flight 77.

Wayne Coste’s talk, titled “The Trail of Damage at the Pentagon,” discussed the “blast-resistant” E ring wall, a severed tree and other impacted objects, the damage from plane impact with the façade, the impact sequence illustrating yaw motion of the plane caused by impact with other objects, the size and features of the plane entry hole, the C ring (exit) hole, and the existence of three clear paths through the maze of internal columns that allowed heavy plane parts to reach and impact the C ring wall. Coste also discussed the effects of the plane’s trailing air mass on distribution of light debris outside the Pentagon.

The next talk titled “The Flight Data Recorder” by Warren Stutt showed how the FDR data supports AA Flight 77 impacting the Pentagon. Stutt was able to convey to the audience a basic understanding of his highly technical analysis of the FDR data obtained through FOIA requests. Stutt treated many of the claims that have been made against the authenticity of the FDR data and showed them to be unfounded. In his meticulous work, Stutt collaborated with the late Frank Legge who, speaking of the FDR data, wrote: “The probability of creating such a masterpiece from scratch correctly must be virtually non-existent.”

The last presentation was by John D. Wyndham who based his talk, “The Pentagon Event on 9/11 - Problems with Hypotheses Alternative to Large Plane Impact,” on an updated table from an earlier, published paper. The table compared six different hypotheses as to what caused the damage and deaths at the Pentagon with ten different items of eyewitness and hard, physical evidence. Wyndham showed that large plane impact, most probably by AA Flight 77, was the only hypothesis that could explain all the evidence items, and the only hypothesis on the list that could justly be termed a theory.

The conference ended with a Q&A session in which attendees submitted questions to the five presenters through cards given to the moderator, Fran Shure. The conference appeared to be well-received by attendees who were invited to Fran's home for an after-conference party which many attended.

Videos of the conference will be posted on YouTube and BitChute as they are produced over the next few weeks. Links to the videos are available at Anyone is free to disseminate the links or embed the videos on other web sites. See for more information.
