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.
I don't know whether anyone on here is aware of a new answer message. I am not too sure what to make of this. A strong part of me says it's disinfo.
(I can't figure out how to place the clip in the message)
We were told that CeeCee Lyles was a flight attendant
on United Flight 93. The following news report states
that in early 2004 her husband, Lorne Lyles, received
more than $1-million from United, the Victim's
Compensation Fund and several charities.
However, CeeCee Lyles is not listed in the September
11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001.
And CeeCee Lyles is not listed in the Social Security
Death Index as well.
And here are seven versions of the CeeCee Lyles phone
call. (One from Jeb Bush)
In Fort Myers, Fla., Lorne Lyles didn't hear the phone
ringing. He'd worked the night shift and had lain down
to sleep at 7:30. At 9:47 a.m., the answering machine
picked up a call from his wife, CeeCee, stranded in
the back of the airplane. When the tape was played back
hours later, CeeCee Lyles could be heard praying for
her family, for herself, for the souls of the men who
had hijacked her plane. "I hope I'll see your face
again," she said.
I need some help with some research here. I'm trying to locate the video footage of the ABC News Prime Time March 5 2001 episode. This is the episode that a company named Sensory, Inc demonstrated it's Fluent software's ability to replicate somone's voice. I was hoping it would show some doubters that they had the capabilty of faking those Flight 93 phone calls.
Apparently they replicated Diane Sawyer's voice quite impressivley, but I haven't yet seen this for myself so I can't confirm.
Here is their press release.
