    Did Wendy Burlingame know anything? Or is this just a weird coincidence?

    either way to me this shows how controlled mainstream media is on the day this occurred CNN and fox where a blaze with story's of James Kim wandering from his car and freezing to death and re-telling the Jon bonnet Ramsey story
    but not one word of this....this was obviously a decision from the top to not report on this..it is news worthy on the fact alone that a second tragedy had happened to a 911 pilots family and that it was less than a month after the 5th anniversary of 911 ..the story was intentionally shelved what ever the reason, to hide the truth ? to not fuel conspiracy theory's ?
    the same for building 7 the pictures of the twin towers falling was shown again and again and again but the collapse of building 7 was aired two times









    Tragedy struck a 9/11 family for a second time when the daughter of one of the hijacked pilots was killed in a suspicious blaze in New Jersey yesterday.

    Wendy Burlingame, 32, and her two dogs died when flames ripped through her 10th-floor apartment in Guttenberg, Hudson County.

    Burlingame was the daughter of American Airlines pilot Charles (Chick) Burlingame, whose plane crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

    "It's just an extreme tragedy," said Tim Sumner, who knew Wendy Burlingame from the 9/11 Families survivor group. "It's an amazing blow to that family."

    Wendy Burlingame's aunt, Debra Burlingame, a member of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation board, was too heartbroken to speak last night.

    The fire broke out about 12:30 a.m. in the Galaxy Towers apartment Burlingame shared with her fiancé, Kevin Roderick.

    Neighbors said Burlingame moved into the apartment overlooking the Hudson River about a month ago. Roderick escaped the fire.

    Firefighters battled the stubborn blaze for about three hours before bringing it under control. Firefighters found Burlingame's body in a hallway between the kitchen and a bedroom, investigators said.

    "It is suspicious at this point because the cause and origin have not been established," Hudson County Prosecutor Edward De Fazio said.

    De Fazio said the fire damaged neighboring apartments. A neighbor reported hearing a commotion coming from Burlingame's apartment just before the fire alarms in the building sounded.

    That was underreported? I thought it was reported half to death, it's just that no one saw it as a problem because the students were male and the teachers were good-looking. (I disagree with that position, btw)

    The NAFTA Superhighway could have used a lot more coverage, but maybe that was included with the North American Union story.
