Titan Systems description of attack inconsistent with ASCE report.  more building information, page 7

Below is a screen print from the Arlington County After Action Report introduction showing that Titan Systems Corporation created the report.  And....theTitan Systems quotation of the description of the attack.  That description is completely inconsistent with the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) report of the attack.

Titan Systems: description of attack  and Titan Corporation


Report Quotation: "At 9:37 a.m., in Arlington County, Captain Steve McCoy and the crew of ACFD Engine 101 were en route to a training session in Crystal City, traveling north on Interstate 395. Their conversation about the World Trade Center attack earlier that morning was interrupted by the sight and sound of a commercial airliner in steep descent, banking sharply to its right before disappearing beyond the horizon. At the same time, ACPD Corporal Barry Foust and Officer Richard Cox, on patrol in south Arlington County, saw a large American Airlines aircraft in a steep dive and on a collision course with the Pentagon.

At 9:38 a.m., American Airlines Flight #77 crashed into the west side of the Pentagon, just beyond the heliport. It was traveling at a speed of about 400 miles per hour, accelerating with close to its full complement of fuel at the time of impact.

The destruction caused by the attack was immediate and catastrophic. The 270,000 pounds of metal and jet fuel hurtling into the solid mass of the Pentagon is the equivalent in weight of a diesel train locomotive, except it is traveling at more than 400 miles per hour. More than 600,000 airframe bolts and rivets and 60 miles of wire were instantly transformed into white-hot shrapnel. The resulting impact, penetration, and burning fuel had catastrophic effects to the five floors and three rings in and around Pentagon Corridors 4 and 5. (See detailed graphics in Appendix 4.)

This act of evil cost the lives of 189 persons in the Pentagon attack, 184 innocent victims, and the 5 terrorist perpetrators of the criminal attack."

Nothing mentioned above about light pole damage,  and What does "solid mass of the Pentagon" mean?  White hot shrapnel?   and see 7 min fire detail and National Fire Protection Association   and perpetuation of  "steep dive' myth  right:

WMR: Alberto Gonzales covered up torture by American contractors under DOJ investigation,  December 20, 2010 --
A top U.S. military source involved with the ostensibly-U.S. military run detention camps and prisons in post-U.S. invasion and occupation Iraq has told WMR that a number of private contractors who were responsible for ordering and committing abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad and at other detention facilities were former U.S. state and federal prison guards who were under criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice while also working in Iraq. The contractors, many of whom used aliases like "James Bond" and "007" were accused of abusing prisoners at U.S. federal and state prisons while working as guards.

However, a deal was worked out between then-White House Chief Counsel Alberto Gonzales and Commander of Combined Joint Task Force 7 General Ricardo Sanchez that resulted in all the pending criminal investigations of the former U.S. prison guards dropped in return for their "service" in Iraq. The deal to lift the pending Justice Department investigations of the former U.S. prison guards was worked out by the Prisons Department, which reported to Coalition Provisional Authority head Paul "Jerry' Bremer.

WMR's Army source revealed that when asked by military personnel about their assigned jobs at the Iraq prisons, many of the civilian interrogators replied, "If I told you, I'd have to kill you." WMR has also learned that many of the interrogation contracts with companies like CACI and Titan were arranged through the auspices of the CIA, not the Department of Defense.

Aside from some Israelis present at Abu Ghraib and other prisons, none of the contractor interrogators spoke Arabic and most were in Iraq on lucrative 90-day contracts. After the expiration of their 90-day contracts, the civilian interrogators were shipped to the Hilton Hotel in Kuwait where they re-negotiated their original contracts at double and triple their original salaries. The Hilton contract re-negotiation interlude was punctuated by drinking parties and orgies with prostitutes, according to our source.

WMR has learned of one such interrogation contractor who was being paid by CACI at the same time he was working as a Naval Security Group reservist and thus was being paid twice for doing the same job. The individual had been assigned to Saudi Arabia as a signals intelligence operator during the first Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s and re-appeared as a SIGINT operator at the U.S. embassy in Muscat, Oman during Operation Iraqi Freedom. From Muscat, the SIGINT operator ended up working at Bremer's headquarters in threw Green Zone. There is a possibility that the contractor in question may have had ties to Israeli intelligence, and, thus, represented an Israeli penetration of National Security Agency (NSA) operations in Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Iraq. No criminal charges for his involvement in the abuse of prisoners at Avbu Ghraib, or possible espionage, were ever brought against the contractor.

The bottom line at Abu Ghraib and some twenty other detention facilities around Iraq was that there was no military control and very little civilian control over the activities of the civilian interrogators and detention operatives.

Titan Systems: column damage maps
  • Titan Systems shows missing and damaged columns in Ring C & D
Below is copy of Appendix 4 - First Floor, column damage through Rings C, D, E.  See After Action Report in Response to September 11  see Appendix 4, page 211.  About a dozen columns are missing and about a dozen columns are damaged.  This map seems completely inconsistent with the idea of a "steep dive" ...."at 400 mph.   This map is consistent with the AFCE conclusion that the aircraft was on a parallel-to-the-ground trajectory.

ASCE description of attack:


link to The Pentagon Building Performance Report (ASCE) American Society of Civil Engineers.   TOP  HOME
The site data indicate that the aircraft fuselage impacted the build-ing at column line 14 at an angle of approximately 42 degrees to the normal to the face of the building, at or slightly below the second-story slab. Eyewitness accounts and photographs taken by a security camera suggest that the aircraft was flying on nearly a level path essentially at grade level for several hundred feet immediately prior to impact. Gashes in the facade above the second-floor slab between column lines 18 and 20 to the south of the collapse area suggest that the aircraft had rolled slightly to the left as it entered the building. The right wing was below the second-floor wingspan of the aircraft (figure 6.1). An examination of the area encompassed by extending the line of travel of the aircraft to the face of the building shows that there are no discrete marks on the building corresponding to the positions of the outer third of the right wing. The size and position of the actual opening in the facade of the building (from column line 8 to column line 18) indicate that no portion of the outer two-thirds of the right wing and no portion of the outer one-third of the left wing actually entered the building.  It is possible that less of the right wing than the left wing entered the building because the right wing struck the facade 


ASCE: Column damage maps:
below: aircraft entry graphics, ASCE below: after debris removed,  ASCE

Column damage area  is about 85',  wide, Boeing wingspan is 125'.  Considering the angle of attack the opening would be at least 177'   right   see page 28 WTC comparison


  • Titan map shows  more columns as missing than ASCE.
  • Titan does not mention the absence of any facade damage above 25'.  Tail height  of a Boeing 757 is 45'.
  • The whole created by the aircraft was not large enough to allow all the fuel to enter the building.
  • The structural upgrades were not designed with aircraft impact in mind, but for exterior blast protection.
  • 2nd floor upgraded windows were not broken by the impact of the attack jet, but by fire or fire extinguishing efforts.
