The Pentagon to most people is simply the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. This megalithic structure and its 5,100,00 feet of reinforced concrete, with 17 miles of hallway corridors remains as one of the world’s largest office buildings on the planet. However, there are some facts the public are completely unaware of about the Pentagon.
1. The Pentagon was Constructed on Hell’s Bottom
During the Civil War, a settlement known as Freedman’s Village sprung up on Robert E. Lee’s former estate, as escaped slaves made their way to the non-Union held territory. After the war these settlements became communities in an area known as Hell’s Bottom. When planners decided where they wanted to construct the Pentagon, it was first decided to be built East of Arlington Cemetery. However, they were told specifically they must build it on Hell’s Bottom, which later became known as East Arlington. Brigadier General Brehon Somervell, was told directly By Franklin Delano Roosevelt to have it constructed on that very spot. The Government evicted the community of 150 families, and appropriated the land.
2. The Pentagon is a Pentagram
In an aerial view of Washington D.C. those with keen eyes are able to see certain geometric shapes and designs (which I won’t get into here). Washington, D.C. is a very carefully planned city. In 1791, President Washington commissioned Pierre (Peter) Charles L’Enfant, a French-born architect and city planner, to design the new capital. Some may call it a “conspiracy theory”, and some may call it a coincidence, but Pierre (along with George Washington) was a high-ranking Freemason. This is reflected in the architecture of Washington D.C. The Washington monument itself, is actually an obelisk, and was consecrated in a Masonic Ritual. The reason this is important is because President Roosevelt, was also a high-ranking Freemason, who chose the location of where the Pentagon would be built. The point of the star that forms the Pentagram, points directly at the White House. As a side note, I chose 5 interesting facts although there are more. The Pentagon is interesting because it has 5 sides, 5 floors, and a courtyard known as Ground Zero, that is 5 acres. And considering these facts seemingly relate to the occult, the number 5 represent the number of death, to those in the occult world. This is interesting considering the Pentagon is the center for our nation’s military, which carries out war and death all over the world. – I do not usually get into “conspiracy theories” but this is interesting!
3. The Pentagon’s Courtyard is Known as “Ground Zero”
Although it may seem insignificant, I think it is very interesting that the Pentagon’s courtyard is known as Ground Zero. After the 9/11 “terrorist” attacks, President Bush first used the word Ground Zero to describe the epicenter of the attacks at the Twin Towers. This is interesting, because Ground Zero is a term used to describe the point closest to the earth where a detonation takes place. Didn’t planes take down the Twin Towers and Building 7? Why was it called Ground Zero? Why is the Pentagon courtyard called Ground Zero? – Most say it got the name Ground Zero during the cold war, because it would have been the most likely target the Reds would have used for a nuclear attack. You decide.
4. 9/11 Was the 60-Year Anniversary of Pentagon Construction
On September 11, 2001 America was attacked. The Twin Towers, and the Pentagon were hit by airplanes. American Airlines Flight 77, smashed into the East Side of the Pentagon. Interestingly, this side of the Pentagon was the last side that was nearing completion of renovation. 60 years prior to the attacks, on September 11, 1941; construction began on the Pentagon. As a side note, the number 77 conspiratorially comes up a lot with 9/11 and the Pentagon. The E4B, is the worlds most advanced and secret military aircraft, that is basically the Pentagon in an airplane. The call sign for the E4B, is Venus 77 (the AA Flight that crashed into the Pentagon was Flight 77 – coincidence?). Venus, in astrology represents a Pentagram! Isn’t a Pentagram used by Satanists?
5. The Pentagon and The Manhattan Project
The man who was officially in charge of the project at the Pentagon was Brigadier General Somervell. However, his subordinate Leslie Groves was commissioned to oversee day-to-day construction and operations. He was the key factor in making sure the Pentagon was constructed in the record time that it was built in. However, Leslie Groves was no ordinary man. He was also the Man in Charge of the Manhattan Project. He held all the Top-Secret Security Clearances involved in the Project, that coincidentally or not, was admittedly thought up at the Bohemian Grove meeting in 1942.
