Well this just makes me angry all over again.
Madness.
Just Madness.
Was flight 11 the first plane to hit the towers?
or was it the second one?
I could lokk back through all my files to find out;
but looking through it all would just tick me off even more.

I hope US airlines will work on placing undercover counter-terror people on large flights and most international flights, just like Israel's airline does.

Another question, this flight 11, in the recordings, is what plane? The first to WTC, second? which was this one?

Sept. 11 Flight Attendant Calm in Call


By HOPE YEN
The Associated Press
Tuesday, January 27, 2004; 8:57 PM


WASHINGTON - Shortly before Flight 11 slammed into the World Trade Center, the American Airlines operations center received a calm phone call from one of its flight attendants.

"The cockpit is not answering their phone," said Betty Ong. "There's somebody stabbed in business class and, we can't breathe in business. Um, I think there is some Mace or something. We can't breathe. I don't know, but I think we're getting hijacked."

Ong, 45, known as "Bee," was on the American Airlines Boeing 767 flying from Boston to Los Angeles on Sept. 11, 2001, before suspected 9-11 ringleader Mohammed Atta and four others took over the plane and crashed it into the North Tower of the Trade Center.

The Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States heard portions of her 23-minute conversation with the American Airlines operations center on the second of its two-day hearing Tuesday.

Nydia Gonzalez, who was on duty at the operations center that morning, told the panel how she received Ong's call at about 8:20 a.m.

"Several media accounts of what occurred on Flight 11 claimed that Betty was 'hysterical with fear,' 'shrieking' and 'gasping for air,' she said. "Those accounts were wrong."

"In a very calm, professional and poised demeanor, Betty Ong relayed to us detailed information of the events unfolding on Flight 11," Gonzalez added. "I honestly believe after my conversation with Betty that the 81 passengers and new crew members on Flight 11 had no idea of the fate they were to encounter that day."

In the tape played before the commission, Ong tells the operations center her flight and seat number and describes the scene on board.

"We can't even get into the cockpit. We don't know who's there," Ong says, before the call ends in a dial tone.

The followers of Ragheadism need to be defeated, and all Democrats must be defeated. They are the enablers that caused this to happen. Clinton and the rest of his liberal ilk (Kerry, Dean, Edwards, Clark, etc)...would have us grovel at the feet of these thugs.

I love the way you all are saying Never Forget. I had one of the DC Chapter pins that said Never Forget 9/11, wore it every day, and the lefties would crane over to see what it said, thinking it was some antiwar slogan, and then draw back appalled. The chutzpah! To say Never Forget!

It's totally un-f'ing-real that people have already forgotten the sheer hideousness of that morning. I never will. That second call reminded me of when I called 911 that morning.

"Does anyone out there hate those islamist barbarians as I do?"

I'd say most definately. I had seen the family members of the flight attendant sitting in the audience when this tape was played and it was very obvious how painful it was for them to listen. I can't even imagine.....

“What the West does not understand about Islam,” Shoebat said on Tovia Singer’s radio broadcast, “is that Jihad has stages. If Muslims have the upper hand then Jihad is waged by force. If Muslim’s don’t have the upper hand then Jihad is waged through financial and political means. Since Muslims do not have the upper hand in America or Europe, they talk about peace while supporting Hamas and Hezballah. The whole idea of Islam being a peaceful religion emanates from that silent stage of Jihad."

Great post.
I know it pales against the human toll, but...
Having been deprived FOREVER of the ability to see/visit the WTC towers,
I get really uplifted whenever they appear in some old footage, e.g.,
in the background of Die Hard III or in Rick Burns documentary on
The Brooklyn Bridge.

I'm so happy that political-correctness and concerns about offending some folks
hasn't yet erased the image from the public forum.

It's sort of like "our flag AND our towers are still there".

OMG. I'd totally forgotten about that link. I'm a sobbing mess right now -- happens every time I see that one.

In a weird confluence of events, on the night of 9/10/01, one of my best friends from college and her then-fiance nearly had a car crash (in the parking lot of a convenience store in Maine) with 2 of the hijackers who nearly killed me the next morning.

Wow... calm, brave and always thinking. And bless the lady, Nadia?, who called the police. What a wonderful soul.

Listening to the reservation guy... in hindsight, I'm sure he regrets his impatience with Betty.

These calls showcase how woefully inadequate we have prepared for something like this. We had become sheep, trusting to others to protect us. No more.

Never again.

Betty was very cool and professional. She is just the type of person one wants around in an emergency.

God rest her beautiful soul.

Well she died for allah, like many of us still could if they get WMD's. But heck, at least we don't discriminate against islam or try to fight it for real.

That would be plain wrong to defend ourselves.

Yeah. She emailed me the next day because she obviously couldn't reach me on the phone. So I called her from my dad's house and that's when she told me all about it -- and how she and her fiance had a major in-depth interview with the FBI. She knows which hijackers she saw, and they were on the plane that hit the north tower, the one whose glass came down on me.

As for these tapes, I don't know if releasing them publicly was a good idea.

Go to my profile page and click on Links. The scroll down to the bottom of the extensive list there. I have most files related to 9/11 preceded by WTC to keep them all together though I had bookmarked quite a few files before I thought of that idea. The original thread on FR when the towers were first hit is in there somewhere but I think it is a random one not at the bottom.

And the ones I have are just a portion of the total files of that horrible day and its aftermath.

Many people on FR have even more.
