Five years after 9/11 there are still plenty of unanswered questions. The White House has been defensive about any sort of investigations into the attacks, even doing their best to stop the formation of the 9/11 Committee.

They refuse to allow captured suspected terrorists to have civilian trials which would be part of the public record, and are pressing for military tribunals which would be kept private, and even Saturday on Meet The Press, the Vice President admitted that they've been wrong about far more things concerning 9/11 than they've been right about.

Therefore when the truth isn't coming from traditional sources, and the government is being caught paying off the foreign and domestic press, information is going to come from non-traditional sources.

Today's 4:20 Video is from a documentarian who asks a lot of the questions that should be asked of the people in charge. And it raises questions that most of us, LAist included, hadn't even thought of. So we present it to you today because we feel that 9/11 is important enough to investigate fully. The White House may think differently because they might be afraid that they will look bad, but there are other things more important than how the White House looks - the safety of the American people, for one, tops the list.

While some of this may appear far-fetched at first blush, so is invading Iraq when 15 of the 19 terrorists responsible for the tragedies, including Osama Bin Laden, who the President has seemingly stopped caring about, come from Saudi Arabia.

But mostly we like this film because of its presentation of the Pentagon attack which we had never really thought about before.
