Location in the Washington, D.C. area
The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, located in Arlington County, Virginia. As a symbol of the U.S. military, the Pentagon is often used metonymically to refer to the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Pentagon was designed by American architect George Bergstrom (1876–1955), and built by general contractor John McShain of Philadelphia. Ground was broken for construction on September 11, 1941, and the building was dedicated on January 15, 1943. General Brehon Somervell provided the major motive power behind the project; Colonel Leslie Groves was responsible for overseeing the project for the U.S. Army.
The Pentagon is a large office building, with about 6,500,000 sq ft (600,000 m2), of which 3,700,000 sq ft (340,000 m2) are used as offices. Approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel work in the Pentagon. It has five sides, five floors above ground, two basement levels, and five ring corridors per floor with a total of 17.5 mi (28.2 km) of corridors. The Pentagon includes a five-acre (20,000 m2) central plaza, which is shaped like a pentagon and informally known as ground zero, a nickname originating during the Cold War on the presumption that it would be targeted by the Soviet Union at the outbreak of nuclear war.
On September 11, 2001, exactly 60 years after the building's construction began, American Airlines Flight 77 was hijacked and flown into the Western side of the building, killing 189 people including the five hijackers. It was the first significant foreign attack on the capital's governmental facilities since the burning of Washington during the War of 1812.

The majestic city of Washington, which is the capital of the United States, does not belong to any state of the country, but is a separate administrative unit called the District of Columbia (DC or just the District of Columbia).
The city was founded in 1791 and named after George Washington, the first US president. Of course, tourists are associated primarily with the famous White House, which is open to visitors. However, this is not the only interesting place in Washington.
In this city of white marble there are many majestic monuments, many museums, beautiful parks and picturesque ponds, as well as entertainment centers, fashionable restaurants and fashionable hotels. Moreover, according to American standards, Washington is a relatively small city, but at the same time it has monumental grandeur, a calm atmosphere and unshakable stability.

NWO and the United States: the Vatican’s Jesuits designed Washington D.C.
The Jesuits – the political arm of the Vatican and the pagan church of Rome – want to create a one-world Catholic religious system through the infiltration of every Christian denomination and American political institution with the purpose of destroying the United States with unbiblical, occult and pagan practices.
This video shows the Vatican’s influence in designing Washington D.C. Oddly enough, the Vatican is the first beast or kingdom of Revelation 13 known as the beast of the sea while the United States is the second beast or kingdom of Revelation 13 known as the beast of the earth. Both countries will yield, as they are right now, the most influence on the world scene prior to the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:30-31).

Washington DC. The name alone brings up images of cherry blossoms on the Tidal Basin, stately columns on row after row of museums and federal buildings, the Capitol Dome, the sprawling grounds of the Pentagon. The joke among locals is that you can see the Washington Monument from anywhere. And of course, no visit is complete without driving by the White House at night and trying to take a picture (though the Secret Service will always chase you away before you get a good one.)
It’s easy to forget when you are looking at images of all of these stately historical monuments that real people work in all of those buildings and live in the area. The DC area is unusual in that people who work in DC live in neighborhoods spread across the District, Virginia, and Maryland. Talk about urban sprawl! But the good news is that it means there are many options whether you want an in-town neighborhood, a picture-perfect suburb, or even a more rural, country feel. It’s all within reach in Washington DC.

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, the District, or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States, founded on July 16, 1790. The City of Washington was originally a separate municipality within the Territory of Columbia until an act of Congress in 1871 effectively merged the City and the Territory into a single entity called the District of Columbia. It is for this reason that the city, while legally named the District of Columbia, is known as Washington, D.C. The city shares its name with the U.S. state of Washington, which is located on the country's Pacific coast.
The city is located on the north bank of the Potomac River and is bordered by the states of Virginia to the southwest and Maryland to the other sides. The District has a resident population of 599,657; because of commuters from the surrounding suburbs, its population rises to over one million during the workweek. The Washington Metropolitan Area, of which the District is a part, has a population of 5.3 million, the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the country.
Article One of the United States Constitution provides for a federal district, distinct from the states, to serve as the permanent national capital. The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are located in the District, as are many of the nation's monuments and museums. Washington, D.C. hosts 174 foreign embassies as well as the headquarters of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization of American States (OAS), the Inter-American Development Bank, and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). The headquarters of other institutions such as trade unions, lobbying groups, and professional associations are also located in the District.
The city is governed by a mayor and a 13-member city council. However, the United States Congress has supreme authority over Washington, D.C., and may overturn local laws. Residents of the District therefore have less self-governance than residents of the states. The District has a non-voting, at-large Congressional delegate, but no senators. D.C. residents could not vote in presidential elections until the ratification of the Twenty-third Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1961.

Arlington National Cemetery
Arlington National Cemetery is an American military cemetery established during the American Civil War on the grounds of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's home, Arlington House (also known as the Custis-Lee Mansion). It is directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., north of the Pentagon. With nearly 300,000 graves, Arlington National Cemetery is the second-largest national cemetery in the United States.
The Tomb of the Unknowns, also known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, stands atop a hill overlooking Washington, DC. President John F. Kennedy is buried in Arlington National Cemetery with his wife and some of their children. His grave is marked with an Eternal Flame. His brothers, Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Edward M. Kennedy, are also buried nearby. William Howard Taft, who was also a Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, is the only other President buried at Arlington.
Other frequently visited sites near the cemetery are the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, commonly known as the Iwo Jima Memorial, the U.S. Air Force Memorial, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, the Netherlands Carillon and the U.S. Army's Fort Myer.
The Pentagon in Arlington is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. It was dedicated on January 15, 1943 and it is the world's largest office building. Although it is located in Arlington, the United States Postal Service requires that Washington, D.C. be used as the place name in mail addressed to the six ZIP codes assigned to The Pentagon.
The building is pentagon-shaped in plan and houses about 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel. It has five floors and each floor has five ring corridors. The Pentagon's principal law enforcement arm is the United States Pentagon Police, the agency that protects the Pentagon and various other DoD jurisdictions throughout the National Capital Region.
Built during the early years of World War II, it is still thought of as one of the most efficient office buildings in the world. It has 17.5 miles (28 km) of corridors, yet it takes only seven minutes or so to walk between any two points in the building.
