Comair Crash: The Man from General Dynamics
At least one of five passengers on the doomed Comair flight out of Lexington on August 17 were politically-significant. Most of these were from high-security IT firms with ties to the NSA, CIA and Pentagon.
As mentioned in previous posts, the new NTSB chairman – GW Bush’s chief MILITARY advisor at the White House – was sworn it TWO WEEKS before the crash.
There will be no connections drawn or answers from the NTSB.
Jesse Clark Benton died in the crash. Benton worked for a company we all know. Below the obituary is the first set of Google News search results for Benton’s employer – General Dynamics Network Systems.

A standard newspaper profile of the deceased:
Jesse Clark Benton, 48
Clark Benton took on a leadership role in the congregation at Fort Logan Church of Christ, said Wayne Galloway, pastor of the church.
“You didn’t have to ask,” Galloway said. “He saw things that needed to be done.”
Clark Benton graduated from Lincoln County High School in 1976 and the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 1986.
He was a retired Marine and worked as a principal network engineer for GENERAL DYNAMICS Network Systems.
He died with his wife, Bobbie Sue, as they began a trip to Aruba.
