The Pentagon is broken

The 9-11 Pentagon evidence is the gateway for many people's concerns about a possible 9-11 conspiracy. There was clearly a concerted effort to gather the video evidence starting mere minutes after the attack. None of this evidence was released in a timely manner. At this point, any of this evidence released in the future will be suspect as there has been plenty of time to doctor the footage.

This lack of transparency is indicative of the erosion of our democracy. If there was nothing to hide, releasing the evidence immediately would have precluded any suspicion of foul play. Governmental transparency is the only way to safeguard human rights from abuses of power. The current leadership has consistently moved to diminish transparency and oversight. Maybe the NWO crowd is right when they warn of approaching totalitarianism. The recent trends in erosion of civil rights are not encouraging...
