i suspect it wasn't a bomb. it was the second tower hit and that
tower was hit lower and it was a big fucking plane. it was designed to
withstand a plane hit, but i doubt the engineers were planning on the
plane to come in on a low, accelerating approach. it just gave up.
they're interviewing an eyewitness that saw a large plane hit the pentagon.
