This is just sketchy infor that I heard quickly mentioned on CNN:
Apparently, a family member received a call from a passenger on flt #93, and the passenger said that they had heard about the wtc attacks that had just occurred, and that they (the passengers) were planning to attack the hijackers (evidently, to prevent them carrying out their plans.)
Obviously, that's mostly speculation but to me it fits, because that would explain the plane crashing nowhere near any real target. Seems consistant with a struggle in the cockpit. Obviously it's terrible that they all died but what I'm saying is that if this is what happened then these passengers, by disrupting the hijackers and ultimately crashing the plane, surely saved hundreds or thousands of people on the ground, depending on what the plane's intended target was. That sounds really heroic to me, so in a way, almost "good news".
i'm sorry if this was in bad taste or something but it seemed newsworthy to me.. anyone have anything to add?
