Ret. Gen. John AbizaidThe Pentagon revealed Tuesday that partial, incinerated remains of some 9/11 victims that could not be identified were sent to a landfill.

The number of victims involved was unclear according to a Pentagon report, but it involved some of those killed when a terrorist-hijacked airplane struck the Pentagon, killing 184, and another crashed in Shanksville, Pa., killing 40, in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The Pentagon released the report by an independent committee that was asked to examine practices at the military's mortuary at Dover, Del., the first stopping point for fallen troops coming home from war overseas.

"We don't think it should have happened," the committee chairman, retired Gen. John Abizaid, told a Pentagon news conference.
