Wife Of Flight 175 Victim
Won't Talk About
Govt 911 Involvment

By Greg Szymanski

Joseph and Samia Iskandar believe the government version of 9/11. Linda Gay stands behind the Bush administration hook, line and sinker.
Frank Calley accepted the government's version of his wife's death without blinking an eye even though an abundance of evidence shows the government version of 9/11 has proven to be blatant lie.
And now Julie Sweeney this week came forward, saying she has no reason to question the Bush version of the 9/11 story, saying she'll talk about her husband death but "nothing about the government."
What all these people have in common is that they all lost loved ones on 9/11 and all of them were on board one of the flour doomed flights, according to the official story.
Further, Sweeney now joins a growing list of family members who lost loved lone on the 9/11 planes who seem to satisfied with the government story.
Including the abovementioned people and at least 10 other family members contacted by the Arctic Beacon who refuse to talk, this comes in stark contrast to numerous family members of Ground Zero victims who are outspoken, demanding justice and claiming 9/11 is an inside job.
Why such a discrepancy? Why do many of the WTC family members cry out for justice when most all airline family members, save lone wolf Ellen Mariani, remain quiet as church mice?
Are they hiding something? Are the whereabouts of the airplane victims kept a state secret? Are some living while others killed in remote locations other then the WTC, The Pentagon and Shanksville?
Or do all of the flight families really believe the government, defying the odds when considering how many of the Ground Zero families disbelieve? Is it a coincidence or does the secret of the 9/11 mystery lie in the truthful testimony of the flight families?
Whatever it may be, after five years there is so much of the 9/11 mystery that doesn't make sense, leaving investigators with their mouths hanging open, looking for answers and searching for clues.
Besides Mariani who lost her husband, Neil, on Flight 175, according to the official story, the rest of the jetliner family community has never publicly questioned the government's official 9/11 story and has pretty much stayed quiet in the background, out of the public eye.
As stated, what makes this downright suspicious, is that it is in stark contrast to the majority of family members who lost loved ones at Ground Zero, a group that has hundreds of outspoken critics of the government's official story, a group unafraid to publicly blame the Bush administration for being the real culprits behind 9/11.
For example, there are literally hundreds of survivors and family members from Ground Zero who protest the government regularly, saying Bush and the neo-cons are hiding the truth about 9/11 to protect their own skin.
But in stark contrast only Mariani has gone public denouncing the government story, a fact that shouldn't be ignored when trying to unweave the complex web of deceit woven by the neo-con culprits behind 9/11. It also should be noted that Mariani's story still deserves scrutiny due to some unexplainable inconsistencies
Regarding the across the board silence or confirmation of the official 9/11 story from the airline family community why have they not bother to question NORAD's slow response, flight manifest irregularities and, basically, the total lack of a serious investigation regarding their missing relatives.
Ask yourself: If you lost a loved one, wouldn't you go to the end of the earth if there was the slightest question, the slightest doubt remaining about who was the real perpetrator? Of course, the answer is yes. But why then do all the flight families seem satisfied?
Let's first look at some of the glaring oddities about the airplane family members and why the government's story should have at least sparked some doubt among them:
According to Bureau of Traffic Safety (BTS) statistics both flights officially never took- off on 9/11, as well as showing no elapsed run-way time, wheels-off time and taxi-out time. However, Flights 11 and 77 on both 9/10 and 9/12 had all the recorded data properly logged.
Why the discrepancy? No one has ever given an official explanation for the BTS missing flight data, even though it is well known that airports are extremely meticulous about recording accurate BTS data for each and every flight in and out of its airport for liability purposes.
But, more importantly, if this is a clear indication Flight 11 and 77 were only 'phantom flights" and never existed, why then wouldn't some of the family members publicly voice their concerns?
With this glaring data even making it suspect whether the flights even existed, why then would Sweeney in a telephone conversation Sunday respond in this manner:
"Brian's story is one thing but anything about the government is another. I just want to put it behind me. It is what is and it's done," said Sweeney who added that she would submit to a longer interview Monday evening but would not talk about the government or its possible involvement in 9/11.
It might be added that Sweeney was contacted last year by the Arctic Beacon, saying she would submit to an interview but then failed to return phone calls for two weeks.
"My husband left a cell phone message and he talked to his mother before the plane hit, but she won't talk any more about what he said," said Sweeney about her husband, who was one of the two members of Flight 175 who logged dell phone calls on the doomed flight even though experts have confirmed cell phone transmission aboard the plane would have been impossible.
"Personally, I do not want to talk about things of that nature or anything about the government. I have family over tonight so call me tomorrow and we can talk about Brian's story."
In a story reported in New York by reporter Norman Miller on Sept 13, 2001, here is what her husband's message left on Julie's cell phone:
MARLBOROUGH - When teacher Julie Sweeney got home from school Tuesday she heard her husband Brian's voice for the last time on her answering machine.
"Hey Jules, it's Brian. I'm on a plane and it's hijacked and it doesn't look good. I just wanted to let you know that I love you, and I hope to see you again. If I don't, please have fun in life, and live your life the best you can. Know that I love you, and no matter what I'll see you again."
Brian Sweeney, formerly of Marlborough, died yesterday when the 767 jet he was flying in was hijacked by terrorists and was one of two planes that crashed into the World Trade Center buildings.
His wife, Julie Sweeney, was a physical education teacher and the cross country team head coach for two years at Marlborough High School until the pair moved to Barnstable earlier this year.
Although Sweeney was reported only as a business consultant in official flight manifests, he worked for Brandes Associates Inc., a small business providing high quality engineering and program support to customers in the Department of Defense.
Before working for Bandes, Sweeney was a lieutenant in the Navy and a Desert Storm veteran, protecting the no-fly zones. He was a radar intercepting officer aboard F-14 Tomcat fighter planes in the VF-211 "Bounty Hunters" squadron, serving on the USS Nimitz and USS Ranger aircraft carriers. Brian graduated at the head of his class at the Naval Officers Training School in Pensacola, Fla.
He was a staff instructor at the Navy's prestigious Fighter Weapons School in Miramar, Calif., from 1995 to 1996, and a staff member for the Tomcat Strike Fighter Weapons School in 1993. He was also squadron avionics/weapons division officer from 1991 to 1993 and squadron weapons training/tactics development officer from 1993 to 1995.
He then worked for a variety of private-sector aeronautical companies, including Lockheed Martin Corp., Spectratek Corp. and Horizons Technology. From March 2006, he was a systems consultant for the Department of Defense and aeronautics industry at Brandes Associates in Los Angeles.
Besides Sweeney, look at what Mrs. Gay said after losing her husband her husband, Peter, 54, a vice president of Raytheon Co. on 9/11.
Five years later, she still lives in Tewksbury, Mass., claiming as she did right after the tragic event, she is satisfied with her government's efforts at getting at the truth behind 9/11, satisfied with the money she received from the victim's compensation fund and satisfied with not pursuing her husband's death any further.
"I guess I am different than most people, but I just don't believe in suing the airlines or the government over something they couldn't control," said Gay this week in a rare conversation this week from her home in Tewksbury, as she reflected back about the death of her husband, a top executive with a defense technology company doing business with the Pentagon.
"Looking back, one thing strange was that the night before the flight and the early morning on 9/11, Peter seemed more reluctant than usual to leave for California on business like he did every Tuesday for the last year.
"He was the type that didn't like to be away from home, but on 9/11 he seemed more apprehensive about leaving than usual. The last thing we said was the normal goodbyes before he took the limousine and that was it. I never saw him again and had it confirmed he was on Flight 11 late in the afternoon at 2p.m. when American Airlines called."
After listening to Sweeney and Gay, why wouldn't they demand an investigation into the BTS records, the missing surveillance tapes, NORAD's pitiful response time, unsubstantiated autopsy reports, miraculous evidence and personal belongings recovered from the wreckage and glaring inconsistencies concerning the actual flight lists, not to mention the fact that seven of the 19 hijackers are reportedly alive, well and living abroad.
But specifically concerning the recovery of 'miraculous evidence' and discrepancies in the flight lists, one of the most interesting cases is that of Waleed Iskandar, purported to be a passenger on Flight 11.
As unbelievable as it sounds, Iskandar's parents were notified by the Ground Zero Recovery Team a year after 9/11 that they found the unscathed Wells Fargo ATM card of their son, who allegedly perished on the doomed flight.
After being notified of the miraculous find, Joseph and Samia Iskandar were sent their son's bank card within days, noting it was in "perfect condition," but never really publicly questioned the late timing of the incredible find or the suspicious nature of a flimsy ATM card surviving such a towering inferno.
What's even more suspicious is that their son, a 34-year-old Harvard graduate, was never even listed as a passenger on Flight 11, either on the original manifest or on the official list provided by American Airlines, even though every reference to him afterwards on internet memorials or in newspaper accounts lists him as a Flight 11 passenger.
One would think, Iskandar's family would have publicly questioned the numerous errors and discrepancies concerning Flight 11 and, of course, the official passenger list which never listed their son. But instead they have remained silent, his parents even failing to return over 25 messages left and emails sent over a two-week period concerning these very important issues.
"It's only my opinion but if that was my son, I'd be raising holy hell about the crazy government investigation and the information withheld about Flight 11," said one 9/11 family member who lost a loved one, but wanted to remain anonymous.
Besides the strange silence from the Iskandar's, the miraculous recovery of Flight 77 passenger, Suzanne Calley's, California ID card, driver's license and wedding ring, all found in perfect condition at the Pentagon, has also been accepted without questions asked by her surviving husband, Frank. Despite numerous questions regarding Flight 77 and the Pentagon crash, Calley's husband believes the government has done its level best when it came to the handling of his wife's case, his wife's military autopsy and subsequent government investigation into the Pentagon crash.
And it's hard to believe Calley and the other Flight 77 family members haven't been screaming from the rafters, demanding justice after looking at the facts of the secret investigation and the glaring inconsistencies concerning the military autopsy performed under the cloak of darkness.
But, again, Calley and the others seem to be in 100 percent agreement with the Pentagon since none of them have so much as whispered criticism against a government investigation lacking obvious credibility.
To make the point clear, here is exactly what Calley had to say about the Pentagon investigation and a run-down of the discrepancies in the Pentagon autopsy of the alleged Flight 77 victims as reported last week in the Arctic Beacon:
As told to another family member who lost a loved one in 9/11, Calley said:
"They told me they found her remains, but I decided not to look. The Pentagon officials also said the remains of at least 19 others on board the plane were also identified by a military medical group.
"Immediately after the crash, I was assigned a personal liaison who handled my case. He was cooperative and helpful and I decided I didn't want to see Suzanne's remains."
What's strange about the autopsy investigation is that none of the family members, including Calley, have demanded an independent investigation, relying solely on government medical reporting as advised by the Pentagon liaisons, a personal military attaché conveniently provided for each individual family.
And, even stranger, questions like this should have been asked and independent investigations demanded by family members, all collectively as a group remaining strangely silent when it is the natural reaction of someone who loses a loved one, to travel to the ends of the earth to get at the truth.
Although the government medical team played up the fact it undertook the most comprehensive autopsy in medical history, utilizing DNA and dental records, none of the family members of those who allegedly died on 9/11, like Calley, can now ever be 100 percent sure of the results since the government controlled the autopsy, an independent investigation never being allowed and in the case of Calley, the remains of his wife's body has subsequently been cremated.
"Even though it's four years after 9/11, I still understand that family members can still be grieving. But wouldn't they want positive independent DNA testing done to prove their loved ones actually died in the crash," said on family member who lost a loved one 9/11 but wanted to remain anonymous.
"I never received any remains or evidence of the person I lost on 9/11, but if there were any remains, I surely would have had them independently tested instead of relying on the word of the government.
And that's exactly what transpired in the strange and unexplainable autopsy investigation of the Flight 77 passengers, conducted essentially in the cover of darkness by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP).
And after reading the report, it is filled with so many inconsistencies and generalities that it makes one wonder why Calley and the other family members - not a single one of them - ever insisted on independent DNA proof, matching the remains held by the government with that of their loved ones.
In fact, the AFIP in its report dated November 16, 2001, incredibly said it positively identified nearly all the bodies, including the Flight 77 passengers, a medical feat which several medical experts considered miraculous if not, impossible, considering the short amount of time and the amount of devastation at the crime scene.
Trying to uncover the truth, Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D., who made a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in order to get to the bottom of what he calls a staged and phony government autopsy report in order to cover up for "monsters who planned this crime."
Dr. Olmsted said about the AFIP autopsy:
"A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request to get the autopsy list. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. It is my opinion that the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable.
"When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, that airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons."
Dr. Olmsted then calls attention to the blatant discrepancy of the names on the airline passenger manifest and the names provided by the official Pentagon autopsy report, showing also that three names were on the autopsy that never even were listed as passengers on the airplane, an obvious indication of foul play never explained by the Pentagon.
Further Dr.Olmsted found through his FOIA request that although the medical examiners positively all of the passengers, they did not identify any of the Arab hijackers onboard, who were also not listed on the original flight manifest.
"The AFIP suggest these numbers; 189 killed, 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were passengers on the plane. The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. They did not explain how they were able to tell "victims" bodies from "hijacker" bodies," said Dr. Olmsted. "In fact, from the beginning no explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference, and that makes it so.
"No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three additional people not listed by American Airline sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras (on the autopsy list but not listed as passengers.) I did give American the opportunity to "revise" their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague.
"The AFIP claims that the only "passenger" body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified. The satanic masterminds behind this caper may be feeling pretty smug about the perfect crime, but they have left a raft of clues tying these unfortunates together."
