U.S. Releases 9/11 Pentagon Video
Posted on May 16, 2006
Bowing to a Freedom of Information request, the U.S. government has released a video of what is apparently (thanks, reader Lorenzo) American Airlines Flight 77 slamming into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. The group that made the FOIA request did so to dispel conspiracy theories.
The US justice department has released the first video of the plane crashing into the Pentagon on 11 September 2001.
American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the US military headquarters, killing 184 people, after it was hijacked as part of an al-Qaeda plot.
The release of the video, taken from a Pentagon security camera, comes after a Freedom of Information Act request by legal watchdog Judicial Watch.
The group said it hoped to dispel conspiracy theories about the crash.
