Located in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, DC, the Pentagon famously has 17.5 miles of corridors [Wikipedia].

CONTROL works with the Pentagon when investigating the destruction of government buildings put up by the Jericho Construction Company. When Agent Charlie Watkins saves Max's life during the case, the Pentagon decides to award him a medal [Episode #52: "Smart Fit the Battle of Jericho"].

The Pentagon appears to have some authority over CONTROL as they order the Chief to hand-pick two agents to locate and destroy KAOS missile base in the Sahara desert. Since the base is underground they cannot use bombers [Episode #56: "Appointment in Sahara"]. He also requires Pentagon approval of an undercover plan at the Roman Baths [[Episode #134: "Smartacus"]. On the other hand, the Pentagon also receives signed orders from the Chief [Episode #111: "The Not-So-Great Escape, Part 1"].

Among others, all members of Congress and the Pentagon have bad dreams as a result of a hallucinogen planted in the water by KAOS mad pharmacist Jarvis Pym [[Episode #124: "Is This Trip Necessary?"].

The Pentagon has been targeted for destruction by KAOS on a number of occasions [Episode #16: "Double Agent", Episode #17: "Kisses for KAOS", Episode #102: "The Day They Raided the Knights"] but they have never succeeded. Indeed, when Siegfried commandeers one of Albert Pfister's "kamikaze" pigeons for the purpose it ends up destroying KAOS's own headquarters instead! [Episode #82: "Spy, Spy, Birdie".]

Nurseryman Algernon De Grasse, however, does get one of his bugged plants into the Pentagon's War Room before his scheme is discovered [Episode #135: "What's It All About, Algie?"] and the scientist called "The Brain" was able to sabotage its computer system during his lunch break [GS95 Episode #3: "Goodbye Ms. Chip"].
