I'm sure that many don't know that, simply because they have not spent much time reading about the incident. That fact is one of the first that conspiritorialists put forward after the event.
"I recall reading some place (perhaps one of you will have better recall) that the Pentagon was supposed to be built in a designated place"
Unfortunately, this falls in the same category as an earlier post about lot number 666 and the Capitol Building. Much of what ppl read and write about the map and the history of the city is pure misinformation, see:
"One might ask, and justly so, if FDR's adjustment of the building site placed the Pentagon a tad askew of the ideal geometric location for the reason given, or was the adjustment meant to put the location 'spot on.' "
And one would also have to ask if you really believe that FDR had the time to do urban planning along with being the president?
If you read what I have posted here, you will see that the line between that and the bottom right corner of the triangle make it appear as if the positon that it is in makes it fit the isometric grid that I am proposing is the basis of map.
Care to speculate where this 'ideal geometric location' for the Pentagon was?? And just how would you define a 'tad'?
