There has been a total media blackout on the release of the
Doubletree Hotel video that shows the explosion at the Pentagon
on 9/11 but does not reveal any footage of the impact. This may
suggest that the corporate media has adopted a new strategy of
ignorance towards questions concerning the official 9/11 story.

up zoom in on the explosion.
As we predicted
last month, the Doubletree hotel video shows little
more than a grainy explosion far away in the background, and answers
none of the rather murky "was it flight 77?" questions
that have threatened to dominate the overall truth movement.
However, it was rather surprising to find that the video release
went almost totally unreported. One would think that this aspect
of the most significant event in modern history desveres a mention,
however, only a short CNN news report covered the video, and there
have been no other media reports on the issue, mainstream or local.
Back in May when the original "parking lot" video was
released, there was a huge fanfare with every news network waiting
in anticipation to bash down the conspiracy theorists. Fox news
pundits were salivating as the minutes ticked down toward the
release of the footage which was hyped up by Judicial Watch as
proof positive that it was indeed flight 77 that struck the Pentagon.
This time, however we have seen the total opposite and you have
to wonder why.
Last month we wrote:
The danger is clearly that the government will use its media
mouthpieces in particular Fox News to hype the Pentagon issue
until it becomes the de facto keystone of alternative explanations
behind 9/11. At the point when that crescendo reaches its peak
crystal clear footage of Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon (whether
real or faked) will be released, knocking down the straw man argument
that the establishment itself erected.
Given that the FBI has admitted that there are eighty
plus more videos in their possession, this was a
justified concern. Now it seems that this strategy may have changed.
Is the issue being shut down for good or are elements within the
media heeding our warning that hyping this even more can only
serve to hinder the truth movement overall?
The release date of the video was seemingly
delayed until after the mid-term elections so as
not to attract attention and accusations that it was being used
to sway votes.
Another reason for the quiet release may be that the footage
was secured not by Judicial Watch, but by the owners of 9/11 truth
a site that encourages questions over the collapse of the towers
and building 7. Any subsequent report would have drawn attention
to this website and the further questions at hand.
It is not really surprising that the Doubletree video shows nothing,
given the hotel's location. However, the debate over the rest
of the tapes will continue, particularly given that I cannot imagine
anyone sitting down and watching this blurry video "in horror"
over and over, as was reported by Bill
Gertz and the Washington Times shortly after 9/11.
We have previously voiced our suspicions that there is clearer
footage of the impact in existence and that it may be from another
hotel, perhaps the Sheraton, which has a much clearer and closer
view of the impact scene. The FBI have denied that such a video
The issue is far from concluded and we should continue to push
for the release of all video seized from the area by the authorities
