Bringing Closure to the 9/11 Pentagon Debate

The paper was published in the Foreign Policy Journal on October, 7, 2016 and can be found at:

For over fifteen years the 9/11 truth movement and some of its most visible leaders have debated this question: Did a large plane, matching a Boeing 757 in general and Flight AA 77 in particular, hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001? In the last several years a group of scientists and engineers have presented a number of scientific papers that answer both of these questions with a resounding “Yes.”

It’s time for the 9/11 truth movement to resolve its Pentagon debate by applying the scientific method to the Pentagon evidence. Doing so points conclusively to large plane impact.

This paper is also listed on the Scientific Method 9/11 website in the Pentagon section and comments can be sent to .
