Today, I have been watching the coverage of the 9/11 attack on the 15th anniversary of the event. I have been switching channels to see as much of the coverage of the event as I can. So far, I have heard nothing of the story of Barbara Olsen, who was on Flight 77 that day.
I previously blogged about Barbara Olsen at
Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Barbara Olsen:
Barbara Kay Olson (née Bracher; December 27, 1955 – September 11, 2001) was an American lawyer and conservative television commentator who worked for CNN, Fox News Channel, and several other outlets. She was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 77 en route to a taping of Bill Maher‘s television show Politically Incorrect when it was flown into the Pentagon in the September 11 attacks. Her original plan had been to fly to California on September 10, but delayed until the next morning so that she could wake up with her husband on his birthday, September 11.
Could Barbara have missed her flight and something else happened to her on that day? Her husband did not seem to be grief stricken, and after her death, he never talked about her on TV.
