Doubletree video release to ’shock & awe’ before election?

We may finally see video of a jet, but why hold the video for five years? Why confiscate it in the first place? It makes no sense to me.

doubletree1.png454084420_m.gifThe much anticipated release of the Doubletree Hotel security video that has been speculated it will show a Boeing 757 hitting the Pentagon is due to be released by one week from today the latest:

?The FBI has agreed to release to Judicial Watch a videotape obtained from the Doubletree Hotel near the Pentagon by November 9, 2006.? - Judicial Watch

This is thought to be the same security video that Doubletree employees watched in "shock and horror" over and over again before the FBI came and confiscated it reportedly the next day:

?A security camera atop a hotel close to the Pentagon may have captured dramatic footage of the hijacked Boeing 757 airliner as it slammed into the western wall of the Pentagon. Hotel employees sat watching the film in shock and horror several times before the FBI confiscated the video as part of its investigation.? - Inside the Ring/Gertz File (09/21/01)

As one blogger put it, "Let's face it: five years of work can get you pretty danged impressive CGI". We shall see, I hope.
