Men’s Journal Publishes Mark Wahlberg’s Outrageous 9/11 Claim

Mark Wahlberg: 9/11 revisionist hero (Men's Health)
Mark “Say Hello to Your Mother for Me” Wahlberg might play a rogue vigilante in his new movie Contraband, but his recent boasts in Men’s Journal about how he would have handled the hijackers during September 11th is over the line, according to one widow of the attacks.

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” the actor and Entourage creator told journalist Erik Hedegaard in a profile for the February issue called Mark Wahlberg Handles His Business. “There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”

Deena Burnett-Bailey, whose husband Thomas Burnett died after rushing the cockpit of Flight 93 after it was overtaken, isn’t so sure circumstances would have turned out any differently just because Marky Mark was there.

“Does Mark Wahlberg have a pilot’s license?” the widow asked TMZ. “Then I think hindsight is 20/20 and it’s insignificant to say what you would have done if you weren’t there. “

“The plan for Flight 93 was foiled by heroes. For him to speculate that his presence on board could have stopped everything is silly and disrespectful. Sounds like someone is grandstanding.”

Either that, or he’s testing the waters for a controversial Con Air sequel that no one asked for.

This Story was on the cover

This Story was on the cover of almost EVERY paper in NYC. Post, Daily News, Metro NYC, Am NY this morning.

Really? An asswipe actor on a junket for his a new action /heist movie makes a comment about taking out the "hijacker"s and THATS headline news? is it impossibly for any person in the mainstream to make any kind of statement or joke or reflection on 9/11? Of course Mark had to "apologize" for his even mentioning 9/11.

Imagine if he said something news worthy like Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski said

"I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11 story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American".

Is it possible?

"..is it impossibl(e) for any person in the mainstream to make any kind of statement or joke or reflection on 9/11?" Yes I think it is very possible and in fact have seen it on occasion (not recently however), but this kind of remark from Wahlberg is SO asinine (even more so in the context of the OCT) he should be apologizing. I understand your frustration however, it seems like any mention of 9/11 by a person that reaches a certain number of people is jumped all over like a piece of meat in a piranha school. Tony Bennett comes to mind a more recent event. Of course, I would wager that Tony Bennett would have been left alone had he just said something that falls into the official 9/11 meme.

peace all

I think that Wahlberg was

I think that Wahlberg was perhaps showing his doubts about the official story and how four planes were hijacked without incident, or at least allegedly three of the four planes were.
