Several scenarios have been elaborated in the successive versions of this
web site. In the last version, archived in august 2003, I presented two
- The "Stand in" scenario. It was based on the fact that flight 77 had
been shot before it could reach Washington DC and replaced by another
plane which attacked the Pentagon.
- The "Break in" scenario. It was based on the fact that the Boeing
757 of flight 77 had been replaced by a "junked" Boeing 737-200.
I still think that these scenarios are possible, but the conclusions
from the last analyses on the crash theories push towards a more
probable scenario. Here is it's description.
Many facts, outside the circumstances of the pentagon's attack, induce
to think that the 9/11 attacks were foreseen and that a huge cover-up
has followed, including with the voting of the "Patriot act". The
scenario built to explain all the facts
described above, also based on my memory of what I felt on 9/11,
is based on the following premises (see complete
From this point, three options are possible, developped separately below.
- Bin Laden has prepared an attack involving four hijacked planes.
- The US official are warned of this attack, by several channels, the
most serious being the minister of foreign affairs of the Taliban regime who
tried to open by this way a negotiation with the U.S. officials.
- It is decided to leave this attack be held, though discretely
organizing to limit the human losses, to create a psychological shock
on the american people and to create the necessary conditions to open a war
in the middle east.
- The Boeing 757 of flight 77 has been prepared. It is loaded with a depleted
uranium bomb, or a composite BROACH type bomb in the luggage compartment.
- On 9/11, four planes are hijacked at the same time. This could be a
real hijacking by Al Quaeda terrorists, or an electronic hijacking through
a distance control operation of the planes, or a
mix of these two hypotheses (see lower).
- According to the
NORAD gets the information from the
- A hijacked plane hits the first tower of the WTC. Within 15 mn, almost everybody
has the information (I had it in France at my office, the wife of a colleague
having received a mail from somebody watching CNN in the USA, and
having phoned to her husband).
- A second hijacked plane hits the second tower of wtc. Everybody, including
people in France who follow in real time the events on internet, know that this
is not an accident but an attack.
- NORAD, which obviously has at least the same information than the french public,
is by some ways locked by the conspiracy.
Option 1 (MIHOP 3) : The pure remote control scenario
The scenario goes on this way :
- The 757 of flight 77 has been equiped with a distance
piloting equipment (radio command, video feedback).
- A C 130 flies in the surroundings, with the pilot of this remotely piloting equipment
on it's board. It follows closely flight 77, taking control of the last part
of the trajectory on a video monitor.
- This video system lacking some resolution, as the 757 is set full throttle,
he doesn't see the lamp poles at the crossroads beetween highways 27 and 244. The shocks
are not destructive for the plane,
but bend the lamp poles and pull some of them out, probably causing the bomb
plane to be close to crash on the ground of the pentagon's heliport. The pilot succeeds
in stabilizing the trajectory.
- At the impact time, the C 130 veers and gets away from the explosion.
Option 2 (LIHOP) : The hijack scenario
The scenario goes on this way :
- Flight is hijacked by Hani Hanjour and fellows and is directed to Washington DC.
- Hani Hanjour would like to strike the White House, but he is too high when
arriving on the city to recognize it and dive onto it.
- He makes a steep turn to come back to the city's center. Being poorly
trained, he looses altitude during his turn, and is so low by the end of it,
perhaps dazzled when facing the rising sun, that he nearly crashes before having
seen his target.
- He understands that he will not be able to strike the white house, but
just in front of him is the pentagon, huge building with characteristic
- He puts full throttle, shouts "Allah ou akbar", and concentrates on directing
his plane straight ahead him on the building.
- he doesn't see the lamp poles at the crossroads beetween highways 27 and 244.
The 757, near full speed, bends the lamp poles and pulls some of them out, the
weight and inertia of the plane maintaining it on the trajectory.
Option 3 (HIHOP) : The "war drill" scenario
- The US authorities, warned of the multiple hijacking projected by Al Qaeda,
decide to experiment a set of
which allows to take remote control of a hijacked plane and land it securely.
- The pilots of the flights are party in the operation. Charles Burlingame,
pilot of flight 77, is chosen for having already been in some secret ops, and
being an expert who analysed the scenario of the crash of an airliner onto
a target building.
- Some big wheels and some experts of companies working on these technologies
register on the flights, probably pushed to do it to show that they
trust in their work.
- Charles Burlingame,
who had planed to attend a baseball game in Anaheim, california,
with his spouse Sheri, tells her not to join him aboard flight 77. His brother, Brad,
who reports this, says he explained that he could not get a good seat to the game.
- Hani Hanjour and his team hijack flight 77. Perhaps softly as the captains and some
passengers know in advance that this must happen. Perhaps more hardly if some
hijackers loose their nerves and want to let some blood flow in order to control
passengers by terror.
- The scenario goes on, the plane (as the two others of flight 11 and flight 175)
is put under electronic control. A Navy C130 has on board the remote control equimement
and the "pilot". The operation is supervised by a team of the Navy intelligence,
from a room located at the first floor of
the west aisle of the Pentagon.
- The air defense system is deliberatly set to
probably simulating a
unless this was part of an
planned in advance, which was necessary for the experiment.
- On board the plane, Hani Hanjour sees that the plane is no longer under
control, and is probably instructed by the captain that they are now
under remote control, and they just have to wait to be on ground to discuss
calmly with the authorities who will be friendly with the hijackers if they dont
harm in any way the passengers.
- Charles Burlingame and Hani Hanjour, perhaps both in the cockpit, and none
of them understanding what is happening, see their plane run straight into the
Pentagon to crash into it.
- The bomb inside the plane explodes. The navy intelligence team, in the pentagon,
none of them understanding what happens, is killed by the shaped charge explosion,
the DU penetrator, the debris of the plane, the fire in the building.
- As the operation is a full success for the three first hits, with identical
screenplays, it is decided to stop flight 93, which was planned to crash onto
the Capitol, and it is shot over Pensylvania. It could be by a missile launched
by a neutral business jet sized plane which was following it on purpose, or as
reported by Col. Donn
de Grand-Pre, by two sidewinders missiles shot by a fighter of the "Happy Hooligans",
a F 16 mounted squadron of the North Dakota Air Guard.
- The crime is nearly perfect, as the "innocent perpetrators" (those who
made the technology and were party in the experiment, on board the planes or
inside the pentagon) are killed in the same
time than the victims of the attacks, and won't come later to explain that
all this was an anti-hijack experiment which was itself hijacked.
- The 757 strikes the building at nearly full speed, say more than 400 mph,
and punches the front, most of the plane's part being scratched into the
building, and some parts rebounding outside up to a long distance away.
- The hollow charge, the depleted uranium impact and perhaps the energy of
some heavy part of the plane (landing
gear, engines) destroy heavily the structures of the building.
- The depleted uranium load of the bomb plays it's role of
penetration, getting deeply inside the building, penetrating through walls
and floors, destroying several pillars and making the "punch out" hole in the
wall of the C ring.
- Except some heavy steel parts (landing gear, motors), the plane is completely
destroyed, transformed in a shower of aluminum confettis as some witnesses said for
the part of the plane which bounced outwards, and transformed mostly in a white
powder (alumina) by the action of the sprinkler system for the part of the plane
which got into the building.
- Some oddities in the witness accounts, the evident cover-up of the crash elements
by the authorities push the french journalist Thierry Meyssan to publish his books,
"The Big lie" and "The Pentagate". The web site "Hunt the Boeing" is a big success
on internet, raising questions about the reality of a 757 crash.
- The autorities of the United States (FBI, DOD, CIA,
give to the questions
raised by Meyssan the worst possible answer : faked images, first from the cctv
camera of the Pentagon's parking lot, second of some debris showing "red letters"
supposed to come from the "American" logo of the Boeing 757.
- The infographists who make these faked images and the officials who ordered this
work have skills limited to 2D images. The third dimension is inaccessible to their brain.
The fakery can be proved reasonning on topography, perspective and geometrical analysis.
- This ruins the official thesis of a purely civil Boeing 757 crash. As the more probable
is that the plane was really a 757, the consequence is that it carried a military load.
Arguments for this scenario
- It fits well the witnesses accounts : some witnesses recognized a 757.
- The size of this plane and it's mass explain the location of the hit
lamp poles and their important damage.
- The position of the engines regarding the plane's axis fit perfectly
the damage on the fence, the electric generator, the ventilation structure
- The damage on the building fit the size of a 757 if the wings folded along
the fuselage during the crash.
- The explosion, as shown on the video, and it's effects on the building,
couldn't be due to the crash itslef : a bomb inside would be more likely to
cause what is seen on the cctv video and the damage that have occured.
- The bomb explosion would have blown away the tail of the aircraft, preventing it from
striking the building above the body impact zone and leaving the windows intact
on third floor.
- Some damage inside the building, limited in size to a linear zone perfectly aligned
from the impact point to the "punch out" exit hole, with tremendous effects,
the oddities of the civil engineers reports, the photos inside the damaged Pentagon,
the presence of uranium waste in the air at Washington DC in the days after the crash,
account for the presence of a depleted uranium warhead in the attacking plane.
- It was necessary to massage the original video of the Pentagon's parking lot camera,
which probably shown several images of the plane during the crash, with some effects
undoubtly drawing to the conclusion that an internal blast occured inside the plane
(tail and other debris blown out, ...)
Arguments against this scenario
Excepted some technical arguments (what bomb was used, no witness account for
the position of the tail of the plane), the main arguments against this
scenario are :
- The fact that the government of the United States would have let thousands of the
citizens of this country be killed to organize a propaganda operation is unbelievable.
- The fact that this propaganda operation would have included an attack of the
headquarters of the country's army with an uranium bomb is unbelievable.
- The fact that a bomb, probably a sophisticated anti-bunker type, could have
been placed inside an airliner's luggage compartment at Washington Dulles airport
before take-off is unbelievable.
- The fact that the first military, economic and technological power of the planet,
facing a communication problem on a sensible matter, could decide to make a
fakery and order this job to one or several amateur infographists, who don't
master the integration of their work into the topography of the place and make
mistakes of space geometry is unbelievable.
So much unbelievable things... as in the "Matrix" film, the best would be to take the
blue pill and all this would just go out of reality. Or we need more information to cancel
these doubts. These informations exist : the black boxes, the remains of the plane, the videos,
other pictures inside the Pentagon, ... !
News. December 2006. The daughter of captain Charles Burlingame, Wendy, dies in her
appartment on fire, after having been locked inside by her boyfriend. Reported by
NY Times (12/06/06). Sad and odd story. Nothing more to say before knowing the conclusions
of the investigation.
