President Barack Obama has offered his condolences to the victims of the Buffalo plane crash.
He made the remarks during a scheduled address to members of The Business Council at the White House.
He paid his respects in particular to crash victim Beverly Eckert, a widow of the 9/11 terror attacks, whom he had met recently.
She was flying to Buffalo to mark what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday.
Comment on huffingtonpost:
Beverly Eckert deserves the highest citizen award for not taking the 9.11 hush money & searching for the truth of that day. (she passed on $1.8 million) Not, an easy bribe to turn down.
Can you imagine having you’re husband being murdered & watching a politican & a party use that event to launch 2 wars, virtually control a Nation & seek new oil resources.? I give the lady, all the credit in the world for searching for facts & accountability in that mess & doing it w/ real American decency.
Does ice cause an engine to sputter??
Witnesses heard the twin turboprop aircraft sputtering before it went down about 10:20 p.m., squarely through the roof of a house, its tail section visible through flames shooting at least 50 feet high, the AP reported. – pbs
