AA 587 Why?

Reader comment on item: Why Did American Airlines 587 Crash?
in response to reader comment: Shoe bomber and AA587

Submitted by Bob the pilot (United States), Feb 26, 2007 at 14:15

I have just read the comments concerning AA 587. What would be accomplished by sabotaging AA587? Who was on board that would be a target for assassination? Who would gain from the act?

Does anyone have any plausible answers to these questions?
