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 (http://www.historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=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 (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5iq08ssHceYp2dEWPSvin-MibCXIA). 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 (http://www.margieadam.com/action/beckert.htm).
“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

^^damn.....

Why doesnt the aricle give more info on the plane crash incident?

Seems like shoddy 2-bit journalism to me, like most conspiracy theroist reporting. I would respect them more if they knew how to write a proper article without putting their own spin on it.

Information about the plane crash itself can be found everywhere. The article just happened to focus on this chick. I agree with you about this being some conspiracy theory reporting though. If they wanted this chick dead they could've done it without bringing down a plane.
