While Mark Wahlberg continues to back his head out of his ass after saying he could’ve stopped the 9/11 terrorists because the other passengers were clearly pussies with his latest excuse: “I am not an actor. I am a real guy from the streets and I’ve been in a lot of situations, so I was probably speaking out of line,” commenter exAkamai pointed out a fact yesterday that shows Mark Wahlberg wasn’t “probably” speaking out of line, he absolutely fucking was. Apparently one of the passengers on Flight 11 – The flight Marky Mark skipped to go to Toronto. – was a former IDF Special Forces captain, Daniel M. Lewin, so let’s see how things panned out for him. Via Wikipedia:
Lewin was fatally stabbed aboard American Airlines Flight 11 as it was hijacked during the September 11 attacks. A 2002 FAA memo suggests he may have been killed by Satam al-Suqami after he attempted to foil the hijacking. According to the FAA, Lewin was seated in business class in seat 9B, close to hijackers Mohamed Atta and al Suqami (who was possibly seated behind him). It was first reported that he had been shot by al Suqami, although this assertion was later changed to a stabbing. According to the 9/11 Commission, Lewin may have been stabbed in the throat whilst trying to foil the hijacking, not knowing that al Suqami was sitting just behind him. Lewin was identified as the first victim of the September 11 attacks.
In Marky Mark’s defense, this dude was seated in business class (Ewwwww!) and I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Israeli Defense Force, but they’re basically all serial masturbaters. So really it’s a miracle he didn’t die just boarding the plane unlike Mark Wahlberg whose experience from the streets and starring in a movie titled Invincible has empowered him with impenetrable skin. I’ll pick my examples more carefully next time.
