Aus 9/11 Wiki
Mickey Bell had been quoted as describing the entire Official Path, lightpoles and all. It was eventually settled upon that he had no idea what happened. There isn't even a direct quote from him.
His "story" was told 3rd hand by the media with quotes from his Pentagon Renovation contractor boss and heavily used as a part of the propaganda. Even according to them Bell didn't remember the event:
He ended up back at Singleton's headquarters in Gaithersburg two hours later, according to President Singleton, not remembering much. The full impact of the closeness of the crash wasn't realized until coworkers noticed damage to Bell's work vehicle. He had plastic and rivets from an airplane imbedded in its sheet metal, but Bell had no idea what had happened.
