Former FBI employee 'saw angels guarding Flight 93 site after deadly crash on 9/11'

A former FBI employee sent to the Flight 93 crash site on September 11, 2001 has claimed she saw a legion of angels guarding the scene when she arrived.

Lillie Leonardi has made the bizarre claims in a book written after she retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder which began after the terror attacks.

In the book, she explained she arrived at the still-smouldering scene three hours after terrorists hijacked the passenger jet and it crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Could have been the spirits of those who instantly died at the site. I mean, I believe in angels too but a lot of souls were lost there.

I always wondered if there would be any spiritual and paranormal activity taking place at the site. I live near Pittsburgh and there is a side of me that would love to go camp there for the night and see for myself. Generally where there were tragic deaths and so on, there are reports of paranormal activity. With so many souls passing that day, I’m sure there is a lot of energy at that site.

I’d tie a demon presence to the hijackers. Not to more normal citizens who perished.

My only question is why would angels be guarding this site. Death is final and your ultimate destination is instantaneous upon death.

And what would these angels be wanting to try to prevent?

There are evil angels too.

And, a possessed hijacker who perished would leave a demon or demons with no place to go, so it or they would futilely hang around.

Maybe those angels would have been better off going to Washington where they were planning the silly crescent memorial.

I should clarify my "a lot of souls were lost there” statement. What I meant was a lot of lives were lost instantly. I don't mean “lost souls” such as “without Christ”.

That’s ok. Airline accidents use the same nomenclature as sea vessel accidents—referring to the number of souls on board.

I always thought it was odd, but it’s accurate.

All I know is from a couple of experiences it could very well have been spirits of those who had died. One of them was a dream of a phone call from a 29 year old healthy cousin telling me he had died. I awoke in the empty house quite startled because I never dream of death especially that of a family member. And when I did wake up the phone was ringing. It was my mom calling me to tell me that my cousin (the same one I dreamed about calling me only a moment before)had passed away. His death was unexpected and a shock to the whole family.

Once upon a time I lost an argument with an AK-47 in south east asia. While I was bleeding on the battlefield, I say and angle, that angle told me I would be OK ... lo and behold I made it.

If this person said she saw an angle, I believe her. Why the angles were there is not something within my purview.

“She’s trying to sell a book.”


Sadly, I agree.

I believe in God and I believe in angels. Most angels of the Bible didn’t have wings and look like angels figurines at the drugstore.

And if she didn’t have this to add to her story, who would want to buy the book? No one. The book would be ... I went to the scene and there was basically nothing.

She also claims to suffer form Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because she showed up at the scene a few hours after emergency personnel. It’s the families that suffer from the PTSD. They’re the ones that have really suffered.

Do I believe in angels? Absolutely. I am I buying her book? No way.

Two excellent books on angels were written by ......

Billy Graham and Dr. David Jeremiah. You should check them out.

And my sentence should have read ....

“Most angels of the Bible didn’t have wings “OR” look like angels figurines at the drugstore.”


I should have had “OR” instead of “AND.”

Sorry.

Christians believe in the bodily resurrection, which is why burial sites have always been important. Platonists identify the human soul or spirit with the immaterial aspect of a man, but both Jews and Christians have always emphasized the union of body and soul. A man is not whole without his body.

in a book written after she retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder

I hope FReepers are kind, because this poor woman is obviously unstable and delusional. Why a publisher would print the delusions of an obviously troubled woman so she can be publicly mocked, is the real question.

I had a premotion dream about 9/11 before it happened, so I can’t really say she didn’t ‘see’ what she claims. However. People have died en masse all over in horrible conditions and I do question anyone that’s trying to sell this stuff to the masses. Just experience it and learn.

“A man is not whole without his body.”

I look at it as “Man is not whole without his soul.” I feel that we are souls being given a bodily experience.

She was at a site that was still smoldering.. is it not possible she was seeing smoke?

Sorry, but when there`s a book involved, the BS factor kicks up a few.

Too bad they didn’t manage to guard it from American Quislings making the site a muslim triumphal shrine.

When my younger daughter was 4, she got into an upstairs bedroom and pushed out a window screen, causing her to fall out of the 2nd story window. Somehow, she landed on a breezeway roof and then fell perfectly onto my wife’s unusually large tomato plants (caged, not staked) and survived without a scratch. My daughter told me that two angels turned her so that she’d land on the plants, instead of the deck. I have no doubts.

That must have been very comforting and special for you. No doubt in my mind that there are people who are given messages of love and hope during their darkest hour by angels.

She claims to be a “spiritualist”. She says she saw angels, but the picture on the front of her book in no way resembles the description on angels in the Bible. Hummmm.

That’s a neo-platonist idea, If you are comfortable with that, so are many Christians. But it is not compatible with the idea of the bodily resurrection.

I didn’t directly dispute it, only pointed out that good and bad angels both exist.

One classic role of the good angels is to help people “who will inherit salvation” i.e. Christians or those who will later become Christian. That doesn’t mean good angels cannot do more, but this is one of their few biblically outlined roles. And it’s a warning that if an angel seems to be acting oddly, to exercise scripturally enlightened discernment about whether it might be a bad angel.
