9.11 widow assassinated by crash of Flight 3407?
Famous Last Words: "Mr Mass Murderer, will you please arrest George W Bush for murdering my husband?"
White House Video: Commie illegal-alien terrorist Hussein NoBama sucks up to 9.11 Widows & Widowers
This crash coincidentally silenced a 9.11 widow, who this week visited the White House to ask NoBama to re-open the 9.11 Investigation into the inside job by GW Bush... The day she died, she was flying to a memorial for victims of 9.11.
It was 6 miles from the runway, and crashed so fast no MAYDAY on radio. Seems someone "accidentally" sabotaged the de-icing system, or "forgot" to tighten a bolt on the wing flaps. Put down the flaps for landing, and the plane instanly goes out of control...
Funny how they found the black/orange boxes instantly, undamaged, and were able to read the data proving a flap malfunction caused the crash. Unlike 4 jets on 9.11, where no crash investigation was conducted, and aircraft debris was immediately buried in landfills like "Fresh Kills", and used to fill POTHOLES (including bodyparts)... Seems Mrs Eckert didn't like her husband buried in potholes, so she protested, LOUDLY.
Reminds me of Swissair 111, that crashed in the Atlantic at night. CIA/FBI arrested MI6 agent Tomlinson, to prevent his 60 Minutes interview about MI6 plot to assassinate president of Bosnia and Princess Diana by hijacking their cars by remote control. His arrest prevented him boarding the plane.
Or Dorothy Hunt's "death" in the crash of United Airlines Flight 553 in Chicago, while she was carrying hush money from Nixon to the Watergate burglers. Seems 50 "FBI agents" were instantly on the scene of the crash, blocking rescue efforts.
NoBama's attorney general "pardoned" a Puerto Rican terrorist bomber of Air Cubana Flight 455, even though it's a requirement for pardon's to include remorse.
Then there's Operation Northwoods, with a long list of hijackings and bombings of aircraft planned by the US Govt...
9/11 Activist Who Sued Government Killed In Buffalo Plane Crash
Friday, Feb 13th, 2009
One of the passengers aboard the plane that crashed into a house 10 miles from Buffalo, New York, airport late on Thursday was a 9/11 widow who had questioned the official account of the attacks, sued the government and consistently lobbied for an Investigative Commission.
Beverly Eckert was flying to the city for a celebration of what would have been her husband Sean Rooney’s 58th birthday, reports the Press Association. Mr Rooney died on the 98th floor of the World Trade Center’s south tower.
She was among the 44 passengers and four crew on board the Continental Connection flight operated by Colgan Air when it crashed in the Buffalo suburb of Clarence Center.
After 9/11, Ms Eckert refused to accept a cash settlement as compensation and instead sued the government.
“I am suing because unlike other investigative avenues… my lawsuit requires all testimony be given under oath and fully uses powers to compel evidence.” Eckert wrote in December 2003 in a statement entitled My Silence Cannot Be Bought.
“The victims’ fund was not created in a spirit of compassion.… Lawmakers capped the liability of the airlines at the behest of lobbyists who descended on Washington while the September 11 fires still smoldered.” she wrote.
Other September 11 relatives who accepted settlements forfeited their right to sue the airlines, airports, security companies, or other US organizations that could have been faulted for negligence and inadequate security measures. This ensured that very little detail of the attacks emerged outside of the government appointed 9/11 Commission.
In the same statement Ms Eckert also wrote:
“I want to know what went so wrong with our intelligence and security systems that a band of religious fanatics was able to turn four U.S. passenger jets into an enemy force, attack our cities and kill 3,000 civilians with terrifying ease. I want to know why two 110-story skyscrapers collapsed in less than two hours and why escape and rescue options were so limited.”
As a co-founder of the steering committee group “Voices For Sept. 11” Ms Eckert joined other activists in pushing for an Investigative Commission.
Only because of the consistent efforts of the relatives groups were the deaths of more than 2800 Americans ever formally investigated by a government who would have rather kept the truth about 9/11 buried.
In 2004 the Ms Eckert also successfully lobbied Congress to pass a sweeping reform of the U.S. intelligence system.
Last week, Ms Eckert was at the White House to talk with President Barack Obama about how the new administration could deal with terror suspects.
According to reports, the Colgan Air flight was on final approach to Buffalo airport, 5 miles from the runway, when the control tower lost all contact. Weather was reported as light snow and fog and a 17 MPH wind. There was no radio message indicating a problem, so whatever happened happened in an instant. Only one house on the ground was destroyed, so the aircraft was on a nearly vertical path when it hit.
My Silence Cannot Be Bought
December 19, 2003
I've chosen to go to court rather than accept a payoff from the 9/11 victims compensation fund. Instead, I want to know what went so wrong with our intelligence and security systems that a band of religious fanatics was able to turn four U.S passenger jets into an enemy force, attack our cities and kill 3,000 civilians with terrifying ease. I want to know why two 110-story skyscrapers collapsed in less than two hours and why escape and rescue options were so limited.
I am suing because unlike other investigative avenues, including congressional hearings and the 9/11 commission, my lawsuit requires all testimony be given under oath and fully uses powers to compel evidence.
The victims fund was not created in a spirit of compassion. Rather, it was a tacit acknowledgement by Congress that it tampered with our civil justice system in an unprecedented way. Lawmakers capped the liability of the airlines at the behest of lobbyists who descended on Washington while the Sept. 11 fires still smoldered.
And this liability cap protects not just the airlines, but also World Trade Center builders, safety engineers and other defendants.
The caps on liability have consequences for those who want to sue to shed light on the mistakes of 9/11. It means the playing field is tilted steeply in favor of those who need to be held accountable. With the financial consequences other than insurance proceeds removed, there is no incentive for those whose negligence contributed to the death toll to acknowledge their failings or implement reforms. They can afford to deny culpability and play a waiting game.
By suing, I've forfeited the "$1.8 million average award" for a death claim I could have collected under the fund. Nor do I have any illusions about winning money in my suit. What I do know is I owe it to my husband, whose death I believe could have been avoided, to see that all of those responsible are held accountable. If we don't get answers to what went wrong, there will be a next time. And instead of 3,000 dead, it will be 10,000. What will Congress do then?
So I say to Congress, big business and everyone who conspired to divert attention from government and private-sector failures: My husband's life was priceless, and I will not let his death be meaningless. My silence cannot be bought.

Dear Families and Friends,
Last Friday, my husband Frank and I were honored to meet President Obama, together with forty other family members who lost loved ones in the attacks on 9/11, the U.S.S. Cole and the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania. The White House scheduled the meeting so that President Obama could discuss his plans to close the Guantanamo detention center and begin a dialogue with the families to hear their concerns, as well as answer any questions. This was the first time victims’ families have been invited to participate in an open forum with a sitting President.
As President Obama entered the room, he greeted each family member personally, shaking hands as he did so. He began the meeting by offering his condolences and thanking everyone for “serving as the nation’s conscience.” The President explained his reasons for closing Guantanamo and delaying trials for 120 days as he evaluates the current system, noting that his intention was to strengthen our legal and moral standing, so terrorists’ convictions will stand up to scrutiny, and so US counterterrorism efforts can proceed untainted. He assured us that his first priority is the safety of the American people and that he will ensure “swift and certain justice” for those found guilty of terrorist attacks.
Following his brief remarks, President Obama devoted the remainder of an hour to answering questions. Family members came with a wide range of opinions on this highly emotional topic. Many worried that closing Guantanamo will mean the terrorists responsible for thousands of deaths will escape justice or be free to commit additional crimes against our nation. Some families who attended the trials in Guantanamo supported the military tribunals and objected to a delay. Others talked about the benefits of federal trials and expressed concern about the violation of civil liberties. There was a shared opinion among the families that fair trials must be held as soon as possible, and that those found guilty must be held accountable. As the meeting progressed, families were reassured by President Obama’s transparency and his methodical approach to the challenges involved in closing Guantanamo.
We were very grateful to President Obama for engaging our families in a meaningful and productive discussion on this sensitive topic. While those in attendance held a variety of opinions as the meeting began, it was clear they appreciated the opportunity to begin a discussion, and were reassured that their concerns were heard and will be taken into consideration. As President Obama closed the meeting he said, “This is just the start of our dialogue...This is not a goodbye - it's a hello," and promised we would continue to meet with his administration.
As the meeting adjourned I had an opportunity to talk with the U.S.S. Cole families. It was heartwarming to hear their stories and see firsthand how they came together to support one another. The resiliency of their community underscored the unspoken bond between those directly affected by terrorism. We share so many common experiences and challenges as a result of our loss.
Please know that VOICES will keep you informed and do everything in its power to build on the momentum established during this important meeting, advocating for victims of terrorism and promoting the reforms needed to keep our nation safe.
Media coverage of the meeting was extensive. The following sites are but a small sample, which you might visit for additional details: The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Daily News, and the White House. The Commander of the U.S.S. Cole discussed the meeting on NPR.
