Stop the 9 11 cover up - "Why is there no accountability?

Info continues from previous Terrifying Live Report Of 9/11 attack. Part 7 - Cheney contra productive actions//// Missing-in-action video camera footage:

Although we may never know for sure if the Pentagon is surrounded with a surface-to-air missile defense system, we do know that the building employs a small contingency of video cameras 85 to be exact that dutifully capture every conceivable angle of the hallowed grounds. And according to a senior journalist from the US Department of Defense, the FBI collected all of the footage from these cameras shortly after the attacks.

The FBI was immediately at the scene and took the surveillance tapes and confiscated 85 videotapes, said Barbara Honegger, a senior journalist with the Department of Defense (DoD).

Although collecting the videos may be considered routine intelligence gathering, failing to share the footage with your fellow citizens for no apparent reason seems a bit odd, if not outright scandalous. But in yet another inexplicable move, that is exactly what the FBI did. Not until 2006 did the Department of Defense (DoD) back down to freedom of information requests, handing over four tapes from their stash of 85 available. Isnt that being a bit stingy with the vintage video collection? Beggars cant be choosers, apparently.

Anyways, two of the tapes released by the DoD show only a vague plume of smoke in the distance and so are of absolutely no use to researchers. The remaining two tapes, taken from the Pentagons parking lot entrance, show what appears to be the tip of some sort of approaching vehicle and that is all before a huge fireball is seen erupting against the wall of the building. Nothing remotely resembling a Boeing 757, or even the smallest airplane for that matter, is evident in the released video clip.

Quite frankly, theres not enough in those photographs to tell exactly what it was, says Captain Russ Wittemberg, a pilot with 30 years experience in military and civilian aviation. But you can tell what it wasnt. It didnt have the size If it was a real 757-200 it would be much bigger than the vehicle we do see in the picture.

The Pentagon explained that the lack of an airplane in the video clip was due to the speed of the aircraft; the lumbering commercial aircraft somehow managed to squeeze its formidbel proportions right between the frames of the video! Yes, the Boeing 757-200 was just too tiny a target, it seems, to have been captured on those sophisticated surveillance cameras.

According to an affidavit by Jacqueline Maguire, Special Agent Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, fifty-six (56) of these videotapes did not show either the Pentagon building, the Pentagon crash site, or the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

Maguire goes on to explain that I personally viewed the remaining twenty-nine (29) videotapes. Yet she concluded that there was nothing of interest for the public to gain from having access to those tapes.

Again, we are reduced to asking more silly why questions, which should have been provided from the beginning: If the Pentagon perimeter was ringed with security cameras, why were approximately three-fourths of the devices not aimed at the building itself? And if they were aimed away from the complex, as alleged, how could a Boeing 757-200 commercial jet fail to get captured by all of the video cameras? Finally, why did Maguire personally view just 29 of the available 85 tapes? Why did she not have privilege to all of them? Certainly she must have been curious. And if it was not Maguire who viewed the other 56 tapes, who did view them? Boeing 757s (and amateur pilots) cannot perform acrobatic maneuvers

Perhaps the reason that the Pentagons army of video cameras failed to catch any sign of a commercial jet was because the hulking Boeing 757 was up in the air performing graceful acrobatic maneuvers before its final descent and crash. At least this is what the official version of the Pentagon crash would have us believe.

Before plowing into the Pentagon building, the Boeing 757 seems to have performed a death defying 270-degree turn at the speed of approximately 88 kilometers per hour, official data says. Experienced flight personnel, however, say no way.

That is a really difficult maneuver, commented Robin Hordon, a flight controller for 11 years at Boston Center. And what I will say to you is that an experienced pilot with thousands of hours probably would have to take between 10 and 20 attempts before they would be able to pull off that maneuver. So it is little wonder that the 9/11 commission report says that the President (George W. Bush) was struck by the apparent sophistication of the operation and some of the piloting, especially Hanjours high-speed dive into the Pentagon.

Yes, almost unbelievable.
