Loose Change Defenders Need to Watch the Movie

One of the defenders here complains:

There's nothing about a shoulder-fired cruise missile in the movie. Stop claiming this.

Let's go to the videotape! From about 23:40 to 24:03 they present the following "evidence":

So what could blow a 16 foot hole in the outer ring of the Pentagon,

Smash through 9 feet of steel reinforced concrete and leave another 16 foot hole?

A cruise missile.

This is what Slobodan Milosevic's residence in Belgrade looked like after a Tomahawk cruise missile had hit it. See any similarities?

From 23:40 to 23:53 they show somebody using a shoulder-fired missile to destroy a tank. At the point where the tank explodes is where Avery says "A cruise missile."

Here's the evidence that the missile fired in the movie is shoulder-launched. First, just before the firing:

It's not real clear, but there are two people behind the concrete wall to the right. The man actually firing the missile/rocket is behind the sandbags.

After he fires you can see a little better where he's gotta be:

A moment later, he cocks his head to one side and tilts the barrel of the rocket launcher back a bit:

As some of Loose Change's fans say, watch the movie and decide for yourself.

BTW, a cruise missile weighs 3,250 pounds.

You are correct, there is no such thing as as shoulder fired cruise missile. So why are they showing shoulder fired rockets when they are talking about cruise missiles?

Misinformation. They want you to think some evil conspirators would have an easy time just jumping out a van, firing a cruise missile, and leaping back in and fleeing with no-one the wiser. Dylan wants that to be your image of the attack, rather than the logisticly involved firing of a real cruise missile.

Its not like they could not find video of cruise missiles, and its not like they couldn't have researched what a Cruise Missile really is. Instead they give us this rather idiotic error.

I thought it was an A3 Skywarrior? Or was it a passenger plane? Or a helicopter? Or a Global Hawk UAV? Which is it!

He never said "shoulder-fired" in the video.
What they showed was a simulation. Maybe this was a shoulder-fired missile? It is tough to tell.

But this either way does nothing to prove that a 757 hit the pentagon, nor does it disprove Loose Change in any way.

It, nice job jumping right to the name-calling and proving my point!

He got confused about what he had seen. He probably saw the smoking hole in the North tower before going into the classroom, later saw the tape of the second plane hitting and combined the two moments when remembering it later.

I don't get the fascination with that anyway. We all know that he couldn't have watched the first plane hit the the North tower live. Unlike the rest of us here, he's not immersed in the details of what happened that day and he misremembered the sequence of events.
