uggs gloves Former FBI employee ‘saw angels guarding Flight 93 site after deadly crash on 9
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.
Story: Leonardi holds up a copy of her book, in which she describes the moment she saw angels in the mist
‘There were hundreds of them standing in columns. There
was a field of angels emerging from the realms of the mist. They were
Archangels with their wings arched up toward the sky.’
She said: ‘And I didn’t say anything to the guys
because you can imagine if I would have said, “I just saw angels on the
crash site,” they’d have called the office and they’d have said, “She
lost her mind and tell her to go home”.’
But she added that she saw more than just
the shapes inside the mist. She, and two men with her,
spotted a Bible from the plane that had been barely singed.
‘All of a sudden this huge wind came
out of nowhere and flipped that Bible open and I remember it flipped
open to Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd” she told CBS Pittsburgh.
Claims: Leonardi said she wrote the book ten years on to let those affected by the crash know that ‘God was there’
Leonardi, now 56, kept the angel vision to herself for two years but as her PTSD began to take control, she told close friends what she had seen.
Kenneth McCabe, her former supervisor, said he had no reason to doubt her story.
‘I believe her,’ he told The Associated Press. ‘I know she believes 100 per cent that’s what she saw. I know she’s a sane person so I’m not going to discount what she says she saw.’
He agreed that the crash site was different than any other scene he had witnessed.
‘[Family members] didn’t have any closure,’ he said. ‘They didn’t have any bodies to look at. They didn’t have anything to look at.
