Five years ago today, I stood alongside Columbia Pike in Arlington and photographed the Pentagon as it burned. I arrived just 45 minutes after the hijacked airliner slammed into the Southwestern side of the building.

A lot of things can and will be said today about the fifth anniversay of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I think I will just let the my pictures in the video below say them for me. The photos were shot on 9/11 at the Pentagon and on the days following at the site and at events around Washington.
