About Those 85 Videotapes...

This is pretty goofy even for the Troofers. We've heard over and over again that there were 85 videos of the Pentagon, but look at the affidavit filed by Jacqueline Maguire of the FBI, summarized by our old buddy Ref here:

So there are no 85 tapes from Pentagon. There are 85 tapes. Many of these videotapes do not have footage of the Pentagon at all. Instead, many have footage of the WTC, some are security video tapes taken from a Kinko's in Florida, etc. Some that show the Pentagon were taken days after the attacks, and some in the evening of 9/11/2001.

I would also note this helpful breakdown:

She determined that the FBI had 85 videotaptes that might be relevant. Of those, 56 "of these videotapes did not show either the Pentagon building, the Pentagon crash site, or the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon on September 11."
* Of the 29 remaining videotapes, 16 "did not show the Pentagon crash site and did not show the impact of Flight 77 into the Pentagon."
* Of the 13 remaining tapes which showed the Pentagon crash site, 12 "only showed after the impact of Flight 77."

Do the math, kiddies. That means one video is left that shows the crash site before the impact, and Special Agent Maguire is referring to the guard shack fisheye lens camera.
