- The Pentagon exit hole is one of the
most anomalous features of the Pentagon attack. It is 310 feet away from
the impact area, near perfectly round and absolutely inexplicable in terms
of the composite nose of a Boeing 757-200 "punching out".
The other sore thumb about it is that it is avoided in ALL of the
official reports. "It is not explained in the Building Performance
Report, the Shoring Report, the Arlington County After-Action Report or
the 9/11 Commission Report.". The only report by an engineer commenting
on it was linked right here at Rense.com. This article will attempt to support Michael Meyer's position
that a type of shape charge was used.
- If any part of an aircraft survived after
traveling through the 24 inch thick steel reinforced, Kevlar mesh "E
ring façade, blast resistant windows, all of the interior walls,
pillars and office contents of 3 rings of the Pentagon, then why didn't
it show itself in the A-E drive? And how did it break such a clean hole
and then decelerate in the space of 30 feet so as not to even chip the
opposing "B" ring wall?
- Let's be sure that the official story
from day one declared very loudly that it was the nose of the
aircraft. Donald Rumsfeld stated, "Yeah. And then came in about"between
about the first and second floor over here. And it went in through three
rings. I,m told the nose is"is still in there, very close to the inner
courtyard, about one ring away. (ABC News SHOW: Good Morning America 6:00
AM ET - ABC September 13, 2001 Thursday) There are many other quotes to
supplement this from officials on the scene.
- The only other response was produced
by Purdue University. It involved the "liquefaction of the aircraft.
It supposes that a ball of energy and debris stayed intact throughout the
building and made a perfect hole on the other side 310 feet away. One problem
with this is the pattern of the pillar damage and the fact that you can't
find a clear, straight line from the façade to the A-E drive.
- Since both of these theories are
without historical precedent or physical evidence, what if we could find
a device that matched the exit hole damage almost perfectly? A weapon already
in the possession of the military and something readily concealable and
deployable a Rapid Wall Breaching Kit. To see a video demonstration of
this equipment click here .
- For the purpose of this demonstration
we will use stills from the video to look at the damage. I feel a disclaimer
is required here as well. I am not an explosives expert. But the obvious
and intuitive evidence is very compelling.
- This is the phenomenon we are trying
to account for. Let's start with a few observations. The hole is exactly
dead center between the pillars. The pipes are evenly arced out. They
don't have any indication of having an angular bend in accordance with
a solid object. There is no sustained fire in or around the hole even though
some of the debris appears flammable. The debris is not even scorched or
burnt on this side of the wall. Bricks are sprayed to the left in this
photo which is the opposite direction of the alleged aircraft nose. There
is no aircraft nose or any aircraft parts of size. Since this photo is
taken by an official I would assume if they were there, we would have seen
photos of them.
- So what is a Rapid Wall Breaching Kit?
It is for the military to gain quick exit/entrance to a structure. It is
a circular explosive mechanism that attaches to a wall and creates a specific
- I have labeled the pictures according
to how I imagine the kit being used at the Pentagon. With the explosive
force projected into the A-E drive and the actual fiery explosion occurring
inside the "C" ring. Notice that it is placed dead center in
the wall, the exact same placement of the hole at the Pentagon. This
test wall appears to be about twice as thick as the Pentagon wall.
- This is the detonation phase. You can
see the white hot initial explosion (as we do with frame 2 of the DoD
video frames released from the front of the building). You can see the
wall is beginning to be compromised.
- In this frame you can see that the white
hot fireball has converted to the normal by-products of combustion (just
like frame 3 of the video from the front of the building). The
hole is starting to take shape.
- The hole is starting to look very familiar.
Also note how the bricks are going out in all directions but the bulk of
the debris remains in the center with a low trajectory. There is also no
sign of fire or heat on this side of the wall.
- Here the hole is nearly identical to
what we see in the A-E drive. For the matter of space this will be the
last frame I use (you can see the whole series from the references at the
bottom). Imagine what that debris would look like if it were hitting a
wall at about this point.
- I wonder if it would look similar to
this? Brick spread out in all directions with the bulk of the debris in
the center. This is a great photo to demonstrate that there is NO impact
on the "B ring" wall which would indicate a solid object and
no evidence of any large pieces of aircraft.
- Look at the darker outer ring in the
photo above. The inner diameter is smaller, I believe due to the fact that
the test wall is approximately twice as thick. Look at the generally similar
shapes of the inner holes. They both have an essentially straight line
across the top indicative of the horizontal nature of the bricks and the
sides have hints of straight lines in places.
