the fuel is indeed stored in the wings...but...you need to take into account that the places where the wings attatch to the plane aren't exactly the strongest part of the plane...the wings are in fact designed to shear off if they hit something so that the fuselage can continue forward instead of being whipped around violently (theoretically this is safer for the people inside)...so image having a toy plane with shearable wings on it...now ram that plane through a cardboard box...the wings would shear off and wrap around back behind the plane...now you'd only have a fuselage (or slightly bigger) shaped and sized whole in the box.... another interesting fact about the shearing winds is that due to the forward motion of the plane the wings would be sheared around backwards thereby allowing the fuel stored within them to flow out towards the front of the plane...and then into (and down the sides) of the building thereby creating a massive fireball (wich is what did the damage to the WTC)...
The fuel is stored in the wings, as you look at the hole it only shows where the fuselage would have entered. The wings storing the fuel would have severe made damage to the building, it would have been a wider explosion, not central to the point of first impact.

Also broken windows and apparent lack of damage isnt neccesarily a factor of evidence there, the pentagon is the modern equivalent to a caslte, its doubtful they are using normal glass in the windows, it will be armoured glass at least an inch thick i would imagine, the kind of stuff an RPG would have a hard time against.
