Strange Times at the Pentagon

Navy Historian Barbara Honegger says that there are multiple lines of evidence showing that an explosion occurred at the Pentagon on 9/11 at 9:32 a.m. The official story says that Flight 77 did not hit the building until 9:37 a.m. (top of page 10).

For example, in an interview for the new version of Loose Change (7:00 into the video -- you can pull the scroll bar at the bottom left to the correct time, and it will take you right to the right place), Honegger said:

• Several clocks at the Pentagon stopped at 9:32, a full five minutes before the official time that the Boeing 757 hit the building

• High-level, credible witnesses place the incident time at 9:32

• A Pentagon worker said that he witnessed a bomb squad at a subway station near the Pentagon prior to the attack on the morning of 9/11, but there were no bomb squads there on previous or subsequent days

I asked Pentagon survivor April Gallop whether she knew when the explosion occurred at the Pentagon. April sent me the following email in response:

"I looked at my watch before I looked at the computer, it was 9:30 am.

Later that night, I looked at my watch it stopped at 9:30am."

Does Gallop's testimony reinforce what Honegger is saying or not? Or is this another example of moving timelines to fit the official story? Or does it corroborate Matthew Everett's theory that there was a military exercise occuring at the Pentagon on 9/11?

I honestly don't know whether this is an important lead or a red herring and a distraction. But I hope that its all sorted out, one way or the other, in the near future.

hi
I remember that on 9/11, some nine hours after the event, main stream radio reports in the UK were referring to a truck bomb at the Pentagon. These reports subsequently disappeared.

Hey GW, I'm crossposting this from 9/11 blogger...

Regardless of "what" hit the Pentagon, the idea of an earlier explosion is plausible.

On Sept 10th, Rumsfeld announced that they had misplaced up to $2.3 trillion.

On Sept 11th, the newly renovated section of the Pentagon (largely empty) was hit. One department that WAS mostly staffed was accounting. A large percentage of the people killed inside the building were accountants (both military and civilian contractors).

A few witnesses specify smelling cordite.

After 9/11, it was announced that there would be no budget report, due to the tragedy of 9/11.

Though I don't think that the Pentagon was targetted for this reason, I do think that explosives were inside the building, to insure the destruction of pertinent data. Many others have had the similar suspicion.

My other fave blog made a good post about it not too long ago...

Rigorous Intuition

I'm not sure what to make of the TIMING of the explosion to 5 minutes earlier. Prior to this, I don't recall hearing anything about a time differential, so it raises some alarms...
