Widow of Flight 93 Hero:

Wahlberg's 9/11 Comments

Were VERY Disrespectful

Mark Wahlberg
's claim that he would've been able to single-handedly over-power the 9/11 terrorists and prevent a plane from crashing is completely "disrespectful" ... so says the widow of one of the REAL heroic victims who RUSHED THE COCKPIT on that fateful day.

TMZ spoke with Deena Burnett-Bailey -- whose husband Thomas Burnett phoned her from that fateful flight saying, "I know we're going to die. There's three of us who are going to do something about it."

Burnett-Bailey tells us, "Does Mark Wahlberg have a pilot's license? Then I think hindsight is 20/20 and it's insignificant to say what you would have done if you weren't there. "

She adds, "The plan for Flight 93 was foiled by heroes. For him to speculate that his presence on board could have stopped everything is silly and disrespectful.  Sounds like someone is grandstanding."

We called Wahlberg for comment -- so far, no word back.

MW is a huge jerk for saying that. Anyone who says they could of done better is wrong. They have no idea what was going on up there. Ignore his comments, he has always thought he was a tough guy, buy his voice makes him sound more like a whimp. I don't care for Markie Mark.... or whoever he is these days.

i wouldn't dignify this woman's rant with a response anyway... it's called freedom of speech, if you like it, don't listen to it! but she *wants* media attention... that's it, end of story, trying to cash in on her husband's memory rather than cherish it. and speaking to a GOSSIP news site about it? bad form lady... baaaad form

Flight 93 was not a movie script Mark. It was real life with real life heroes who gave their lives fighting the terrorists.

If I was a soldier during WWII, I would have kick Hilter's azz. If I was the President, I would have fixed the country. If I knew the lotto number, I would have win the lotto, if I was Mark Wahberg, I would have kept my big mouth shut. If..............
