FBI releases never-before-seen images from 9/11

The FBI has released never-before-seen images from the Pentagon terrorist attack during 9/11. We've all seen the haunting images from the Twin Tower attacks, but less well known is the attack on the Pentagon.

When American Airlines flight 77 slammed into the side of the Pentagon it killed 184 people, including 59 on board the plane. The released images show the devastation the crash caused as well as first responders heroically battling the blaze caused by the crash.
