Feds Release New 9/11 Tapes

Newly released recordings add yet another haunting perspective of 9/11 from up in the air. According to The New York Times, the recordings spell out the contradictions originally made by government officials about orders to shoot down the hijacked planes and later discovered by a commission in a 2004 report. Conversations between FAA command centers and military officials show how authorities desperately scrambled for information and overall confusion over what was happening that September morning. For example, one recording reveals that Maj. Kevin Nasypany discovered that some fighter pilots were sent to pursue Flight 11 east of Washington, after it had crashed into the north tower nearly an hour earlier. The audio, along with other previously released recordings, will be played in an "immersion room" in the new 9/11 memorial museum in New York City.
