CNN's Jamie McIntyre rebuts official account of Pentagon attack

Standing in front of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, CNN's senior Pentagon correspondent since November 1992, Jamie McIntyre reported: "From my close up inspection there's no evidence of the plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. . . . . The only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you could pick up in your hand. There are no large tail section, wing section, fuselage nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon."

Fire Chief Ed Plaugher corroborates Jamie McIntyre's report. At a Dept. of Defense News Briefing, presented by Assistant Secretary Victoria Clarke on September 12, 2001 at 10:16 a.m., when asked: "Is there anything left of the aircraft at all?" said: "there are some small pieces of aircraft ... there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing."

McIntyre's bio at CNN reads: "Six months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, McIntyre's contacts provided security camera pictures of American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon, images aired first on CNN."
