64. Edward P. Felt: BEA Systems and risk management?
Edited on Sun Jun-25-06 10:34 AM by Ferry Fey
Edward P. Felt (who early reports said had made the last phone call from Flight 93 while locked in the lavatory) came up last night when I was looking into bios of Flight 93 passengers for the Beamer thread.

It has been mentioned that Felt was a computer engineer, but most profiles don't note that he was a cryptologist with BEA Systems. This info comes from production notes for the "United 93" movie. Many of these are unsourced, but they are rich in detail and occasional family bitchiness is noted, such as a sneer about an ex-husband.

I looked into BEA Systems and "risk management." I just can't penetrate the corporate technospeak on their website, maybe Dr. Debug would have better chances of seeing whether this is at all relevant.

Ken Basnicki, a Canadian, died in WTC 1 while attending a financial services conference at Windows on the World for BEA Systems, for which he was a financial markets director. It was his first trip to NY. He phoned his mother from the 106th floor.

I'm not drawing any conclusions about either of these people, but since BEA Systems does risk management, I figured the raw information belonged here.

{Edited to add link for "United 93" movie production notes with family bios.]
