Fox News reported that Barbara (who is a Freeper) was on the plane that hit the Pentagon. It was apparently one of the flights from Boston. I believe that I saw her on one of the TV shows yesterday or Sunday - and was in Boston at the time.

I just heard the sad news. After all these years admiring this woman, I feel as though I knew her well. My prayers are with her husband Ted.

It begins to bring home the loss to me. Why do the good ones die and the rubbish continue to live?

For a short period Ms Olsen used to visit this site using the screen name BKO.

Yet more tragic news on a day of tragic news...Ms. Olsen will be missed. I fear we're going to hear of even more such tragedies before this whole mess is cleared up.

My prayers go out to Ms. Olsen's family...did she and Ted Olsen have kids?

Sad day all around...MUD

Any word on Ted?

The second thing that popped into my head:
The Clinton's are truly Faustian.

WHAT A HORRIBLE DAY!!!

How very sad.

I really liked Barbara and was looking forward to reading her new Clinton book - "The Final Days" What a prophetic title!

I wonder if the evil Hillary is finding a sick, perverse pleasure out of this horrible news. Why couldn't it have been the "Hell To Pay" Hildabeast, who was on that plane, instead of the brilliant, articulate, pleasing, conservative Barbara Olsen.

MUD, think of the act of war this entailed: they attacked the WTC, which is the financial nerve center (bond houses, brokerages etc.) of our nation; the Pentagon - the military nerve center of our nation; the State Department - the diplomatic nerve center of our nation; and God knows where that other plane that crashed in Pennsylvania was headed (the Sears Tower?) before its plans were foiled by a heroic passenger or the U.S. military.

This REALLY is war, and I'm not a rabble rouser, but Arabs need to die. Many will be innoncent, but that's war. We need to strike hard, and nuclear strikes on Tehran and Baghdad, and hell-fire surgical strikes on Palestine and terrorist bases worldwide are not actions I would have one regret over. NOT ONE. What more could they do?:

The Marine base in Lebanon .... Pan Am 103 ... The Khobar towers ... The African embassies .... The U.S.S. Cole ... The first Trade Center bombing. What in the world did we EVER do to these people??? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Regards, friend. I'm ready for war. Sign me up if that's required, it's go time!! That's not an emotional reaction, that's a resolute feeling.

I feel bad for thinking it, but it's inescapable.

If you wrote about it as a fiction story, people would call it farcical.

What a horrible irony: She was one of my favorite commentators on Fox News and other networks. You could always count on Barbara to tell it like it is -- not sugarcoat things like all the other mamby-pamby pundits. She will be missed.

1 - "Arabs need to die" - specific terrorists, or will any Arabs quench your thirst?

2 - Iranians are Persian, last I checked.

I heard this and posted elsewhere - it makes me very sad.

I saw her take calls over the weekend on C-Span, some were truly hateful. I HOPE some of these people learn from their vile comments.

God rest her soul, and comfort her family.

What did we do? We had eight years of the Clinton apologist, down with the military,lip-biting "I feel your pain" admin. These countries never liked us. Now they are totally contemptuous of us.

Will miss Barbara Olson-- a no-nonsense truth teller. If God permitted, I have a list of druthers--Hillary,Feingold,Boxer,Streisand,Katrina Van Heuvel,Patricia Ireland, to name only a few.

Hillary lives because events like this are Satan's purview, and he protects his own.

"Arab" is wrong ... how about any "Islamic" people within states that sponsor these terrorists? If you don't know who THEY are by now, you're a liar or an idiot. It's Afghanastan, it's Iran, it's Iraq, it's Pakistan, it's West Bank Palistine, it's Yemen. There's a start for you. There's no great mystery here, it's about cowards hiding in the masses and being funded and logistically enabled by rogue states. It always has been, but we are too concerned with "collateral damage" to ever excise the cancer.

You can wait around for the next outrage MitchellC ... it'll probably be some kind of chemical or germ warfare. Then we can rack up 50 or 100 thousand deaths. Probably not enough for you Mitchell. My approach is blood lustful simple ... if we think 15 deadly dangerous-to-the-civilized-world terrorists individuals - let's say the architects of this outrage - are hiding within a city of 25,000 ... yeah, let's bomb the 25,000. To Allah. No problem for me. The 10,000 or more corpses buried under what used to be the WTC are FAR more blessed and innocent than those West Bank idiots dancing in the streets this afternoon. That's blood lust? Maybe it is. Life's a bitch that way, MitchellC.

MitchellC, I'm sure all Freepers are going to be happy that you are going to alert Bin Laden, the Hamas, the Hezbollah, the Taliban and the rest of the animals that YOU and YOUR family are happy to put yourselves in line for the next act of senseless butchery. Because you're so measured and concerned. The next attack could happen any day. Maybe tomorrow in YOUR town. I'm not willing to put my family, friends and nation in line ANY MORE.

As you are, I am equally sick and outraged.

Barbara Olsen will continue to be a shining light for Freedom and Truth.

This day of infamy will never extinguish our shared goals of liberty.

I salute her!

May she rest in peace and her family find solace and strength.
