Expert reports DU at Pentagon—from a cruise missile

According to Online Journal, Leuren Moret, expert witness at the 2004 Tokyo International Tribunal for War Crimes in Afghanistan, and former Environmental Commissioner of the City of Berkeley, CA, is expected to report finding elevated radiation readings downwind from the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001.

Online Journal writes: "Two days after 9/11, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed that the crash site rubble was radioactive and that it was probably depleted uranium (DU) contaminating the Pentagon crash site rubble. The entry and exit holes through the Pentagon crash site were the signature of a kinetic energy penetrator, such as a Cruise missile, and the term "punch-out hole" was written by crash site investigators over the exit hole. This is a military term used for kinetic energy penetrators. Major Doug Rokke, former Director of the Gulf War I DU Cleanup Team, reported that an email from the Pentagon 30 minutes after impact confirmed a Cruise missile hit the Pentagon on 9/11."

Leuren Moret is expected to speak at the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference on June 22-24, 2007.

Neither Leuren Moret, a one-time member of the Citizens Environmental Advisory Commmission, not the Environmental Commissioner and Douglas Lind Rokke, who never served in the Pentagon, can make the statements in this article. No one ever asks Rokke to produce this e-mail he claims to have received 30 minutes after the attack. Given the extent of the damage and the evacuation of the Pentagon, it is highly unlikeley that anyone e-mailed Rokke or anyone else in the first 30 minutes or even hours after the attack on 9/11. Rokke is an opportunist and so is Moret. They relish the limelight and stage and will do anything to push their DVDs and books - they view the 9/11 Truth movement as a fertile hunting ground. It is too late to warn those who flocked to hear them (I came looking for the video so that I could review some of the false statements made by Rokke - Moret as well did the same) and have yet to find it. It may have actually been removed. The false statements about veterans deaths are easily disproved by looking at the supposedly referenced VA report that is being "quoted". That report shows that 4,312 male and 194 female Gulf War veterans died from all causes, including auto accidents and old age during the study period from 1990 thru 1997. That is a long way from the 15,000 number that Rokke bandies about.
