9/11 Gas Station Video Released - Does not show Flight 77
The long sought after and much hyped Citago gas station video from 9/11 has finally been released. See below for the video and the Raw Story report.
Remember that there are another 84 tapes that the FBI is withholding. The gas station had several security cameras aimed in the direction of the pentagon. Flight 77 flew directly over the gas station at an altitude of roughly 50 feet, less than 3 seconds from impact. If this is all the footage from the gas station then why was it retained under national security laws for five years?
The Doubletree hotel video apparently does not contain the impact either according to the FBI. This video is due to be released on or around November 9. There is a mystery surrounding the Sheraton hotel video though. The FBI says no such video exists, but According to a CNN FOIA request however, a nearby hotel's video DID capture the impact. There were also mainstream media reports that indicated that the staff from this hotel "sat and watched the video in horror" before it was confiscated by the FBI.
Is the government muddying the waters again with this latest release which has been hyped up for a long time now? This will once again whip up into a frenzy the no plane theories. If that happens and the next video, or perhaps the one after that, shows a clear impact of flight 77, then the alternative 9/11 theories that are gaining so much attention now will be widely and viciously attacked.
Long-sought 9/11 videotape didn't capture attack
A convenience store videotape long-sought by September 11 conspiracy theorists does not actually show the attack on the Pentagon, RAW STORY has learned.
Many believed the video would show American Airlines Flight 77 -- or something else -- striking the Pentagon. The videotape, which depicts views from the gas stationâ€™s six security cameras, shows that the CITGO cameras did not seem to capture the actual attack.
Conservative organization Judicial Watch obtained the footage through a Freedom of Information Act request filed December 15, 2004. The request sought all records pertaining to September 11, 2001 camera recordings of the Pentagon attack from the Nexcomm/CITGO gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation.
In May 2006, The Department of Defense released a number of videos depicting the attack in response to a Judicial Watch lawsuit. The group filed another lawsuit against the FBI on June 22, 2006.
The FBI has also agreed to release to Judicial Watch a videotape obtained from the Doubletree Hotel near the Pentagon by November 9, 2006.
"With the release of this videotape, we are one step closer to completing the public record on the September 11 terrorist attacks," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement. "The CITGO tape evidently does not show the Pentagon attack, which the American people can now see for themselves. This videotape was the subject of intense public debate. Now that it has been released to the public, there is no reason for further speculation about what it does or does not show."
The video may be viewed below. Images from inside the store have been partially obscured by the FBI to protect the privacy of store customers and employees.
