RE: Fear itself biggest threat from crash

I read with interest your "Our View" column regarding the airline
crash in New York. You said, "all signs point to an apparent malfunction
that might have occurred in any place at any time."
Considering all known factors surrounding the event, I find your statement to
be rather sophomoric. Measure the following "coincidences":
1) The airplane that went down was an American
Airlines jet -- an airline used against America on 9/11 and one that bears
the name of our nation -- a juicy target for those who hate our country.
2) The airplane went down on Veteran's Day, a slap in the face of all Vets
-- including those who are painting Afghanistan's desert floor with Taliban
3) The airplane went down during the UN General Assembly meetings, in the
same city where the meetings were taking place, as meetings were underway,
in the same city where the largest attacks of 9/11 took place.
4) The engine separated from the plane, as did at least one major section
of the airfoil structures (tail fin, recovered from the waters off of New
York). Reports from multiple pilots -- including one who witnessed the crash
and the engine's separation from the plane before the crash -- say they have
NEVER known of mere engine failure to make engines AND tail fins fly off of
5) The federal government said the crash was "an accident" -- "some
sort of engine failure" -- long before they had the voice recorder or
the flight data recorder (black box) in their possession -- curious and suspicious
to a very high degree as it's highly unscientific and unprofessional. Yet
Reuters reports that there was no apparent mechanical failure.
You'd be reporting the "Government
and Media Cover-up to Allay Public Anxiety" -- if you weren't so busy being
