Daniel Lewin

The Strange Story of Daniel Lewin, the First Victim of the 9/11 Attacks

The North Tower of the World Trade Center

Daniel Lewin is believed to have been the first person killed in the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. The 31-year-old from Brookline, Massachusetts, was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane to be hijacked that day. He was reportedly murdered by Satam al Suqami, one of the alleged hijackers, while the terrorists were taking over his plane.

Even before September 11, though, Lewin had secured his place in history. He was unusually intelligent and talented, and had excelled as a soldier, a student, and a businessman. Examination of his story, however, reveals many anomalies, contradictions, and odd coincidences that deserve scrutiny.

Sonia Morales Puopolo

While reading the article "Man tied to 9/11 hijackers gets 15 years" it caught my attention for two reasons. One being that I do not believe that there were any hijackers on 9/11. The other reason is that when a so called "victim" is paraded through the media circus like Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham or Barbara Olson they never show up in the Social Security Death Index or the September 11th Compensation Fund of 2001. Sonia Morales Puopolo from American Airlines flight 11 is another example of this occurrence. She is not listed in the Social Security Death Index nor is she listed in the September 11th Compensation Fund of 2001. However, a 9/11 script error states that her son, Dominic Puopolo Jr., received about $200,000 from the national 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Another 9/11 script error from Associated Press dated 2/22/06 and repeated 1/9/07 states that Sonia Morales Puopolo was an American Airlines flight attendant. But CNN lists her as a passenger not a flight attendant. Her biography from her web site clearly defines her as a woman who would not be a flight attendant. What is more amazing is that when you do a who is search of soniapuopolo.com you will discover that the web site was created on September 16, 2001! The administrative contact for this domain is Aby Alexander at eXstream Solutions. eXstream Solutions is in the video collaboration business. When I checked out the strategic partners and clients for eXstream Solutions Akamai Technologies caught my attention. Daniel Lewin was also listed as being on American Airlines flight 11 and was co-founder of Akamai Technologies. And Daniel Lewin is not listed in the Social Security Death Index nor is he listed in the September 11th Compensation Fund of 2001.
