Pentagon 9/11 Crash Video To Be Released

The government will release tapes to Judaical Watch today showing American Airlines Flight 77 crashing onto the the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001 today. Judicial Watch fought the government to obtain the tapes, still of which have previously been seen.

From CNN:

The Justice Department will hand over tapes showing American Airlines Flight 77 striking the building outside Washington to Judicial Watch, a public interest group that requested the video, the group said.

At least two tapes are expected, from different security cameras. The two cameras, from the same Pentagon checkpoint, show the building from different angles.

Still photographs from those cameras showed the Pentagon on fire, but no images of the Boeing 757 striking the building have ever been made public.

The video to be released Tuesday was the source of those still photos, and shows the airplane more clearly.

“We fought hard to obtain this video because we felt that it was very important to complete the public record with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“Finally, we hope that this video will put to rest the conspiracy theories involving American Airlines Flight 77. As always, our prayers remain with all those who suffered as a result of those murderous attacks.”

Release of the tapes should shed light on the nutjob contention that no plane hit the Pentagon, though for some reason I’m expecting to be underwhelmed by the footage.

We’ll have the video here when it’s released.

Update: Here’s the CNN video coverage of the video release.
