What happened at the Pentagon?

Please keep in mind, I don't necessarily accept all of this.

In the wake of 9/11, we heard much about what happened at the World Trade Center and with good reason.  We heard much about the passenger revolt on the plane that crashed (or was shot down) in Pennsylvania and with good reason.  How much did we hear about the Pentagon?

It was overshadowed.  Plain and simple.  Thus making it all the easier for a possible fast-one to be pulled on the American people.  There are all manner of 9/11 conspiracy theories and many of them justly belong on the pages of yellow journalism in the grocery check-out aisle.  But consider the following about the attack on the Pentagon:

-If a plane crashed into it, why didn't we see a vertical tail?  An engine?  A debris field?  Seats?  Luggage?

-Why wasn't there more talk about the victims aboard said plane?  Why did their remains need to be returned all the way over at Dover AFB?

-The Feds released video from the Pentagon but only after 5 years of lawsuits.  The surveillance video shows an impact detonation on the side of the building.  I've been to the Pentagon.  There are any number of tall street lights and billboards in the area around it.  So this airliner supposedly came in with nap of the earth flying, avoided all of those obstructions, and smacked into the side of a four story building?  Huh?

-An organization called Pilots for 9/11 Truth have raised a number of issues with the official story given by the U.S. government concerning, among other things, the attack on the Pentagon.  The airliner was said to be moving well over its top speed, something that is against the laws of least if you want to keep the wings attached.  As piggyback to the above bullet point, many pilots confessed that they would be unable to perform the maneuvers alleged to the 757 at such a speed and altitude.  So how could some guy from Saudi Arabia who just took a couple flying lessons manage it?

-On September 10th, 2001, then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to say that the Pentagon had lost track of several billion dollars.  The wing of the Pentagon in which this financial audit would have taken place is the same one hit by the "airliner."  We also, with good reason, heard nothing more about this financial issue in the days after the attacks.  Convenient?  Yes.  Causal?  Not necessarily, but...

Like I said, I'm hesitant to throw in with this conspiracy until more facts come to light.  But there certainly is a fair amount here that doesn't add up.  If I had to offer my shirt tail opinion from right at this moment, it would be that no airliner struck the Pentagon on 9/11.
