Never-Before-Seen Pentagon Images From 9/11

16 years after terrorists attacked the Pentagon on 9/11, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released a series of new photos detailing the destruction at the hub of the United States Department of Defense.

The FBI has now unveiled 27 new photos that captured the chaos that ensued after the plane attacks that knocked down both World Trade Center (WTC) buildings.

The American Airlines flight from Washington Dulles International Airport had been on its way to Los Angeles when hijackers diverted it to the Pentagon as part of the series of coordinated attacks against the United States by Al-Qaeda that day.

Sean Payton says Saints won't sign Malcolm Butler to offer sheet
The Saints aren't looking to replace Zach Strief this year at right tackle, but I think that is the plan for a year down the road. Both of these require him to sign his tender, as the Patriots can't talk with other teams on a trade until his tender is signed.

Other photos include investigators going through the debris, and images of the scorched interior of the building.

Hijackers seized control of passenger jets and crashed them into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center in NY and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. It's widely agreed that the death toll would have been significantly higher had the plane hit a different area of the building.

Officers spent days trying to recover bodies hidden within the debris.

The total number of people killed in the 9/11 attacks was 2,996 while more than 6,000 were injured, making it is the single worst act of terrorism in history.
