There are an extraordinary number of claims within the Pentagon narrative which are "backed" by only one source. Can't we do a bit better than this? Artificial Intelligence 16:58, 26 May 2005 (EDT)

I've relocated this section pending any supporting evidence. On following the link it lists a number of major claims but provides no indication of the origin of any supporting evidence. In essence, we are being asked to take it at face value. As such I'm not confident of the material. --Bob Burton 04:15, 6 Jan 2006 (EST)

Pentagon "Link" to September 11

In his September 2003 Common Ground article "Remember 9/11," Hsing Lee wrote: "On September 11, 1941, ground was first broken for construction of the Pentagon, with financial support coming from many US corporations that were actively trading with the Nazis, some of them until 1945. Among those corporations were IBM, GE, Ford and ITT. But there were also many others. One of these Nazi collaborators was Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W. Bush. Prescott used Auschwitz slave labour contracted from IG Farben at his Nazi steel manufacturing plant, Consolidated Silesian Steel, of which he was managing director. [1][2]

"Wall Street and the US media were so enthralled with Adolph Hitler that Roosevelt had to trick Americans into going to war by allowing the bombing of Pearl Harbour after backing Japan into a corner with a trade embargo. Since that time, the Pentagon has made the US the only nation in history to use atomic bombs against civilians, not once, but twice. It has murdered 3 mm in Korea, 3 mm in Vietnam, 3 mm in Cambodia, 1 mm in Laos, more than a million in Latin America and 2 mm in Iraq so far. The US has armed dictators in the Middle East, Asia, Latin America and Africa who have murdered millions more." [3]
