WTC Tower collapses while man on phone to 911 operator
You Tube ^

Posted on 07/27/2006 8:39:00 AM PDT by STFrancis

All,

This is the most amazing video I have seen and I am now po'ed to no end. Brings home why we are in the middle east right now.

It's a phone call of Kevin Cosgrove to a 9/11 operator while in Tower 2 of the World Trade Center. The call is set to video and is chilling.

A chilling reminder of why it is so important for Us to support Israel in their time of war.

And a reminder that civiization is at war with islam.

That is why I said "those muslims", not just all muslims. Which still leaves pretty much all of them, it seems.

Thanks for posting this.

At the risk of being received like Ann Coulter, that KC guy was quite an unlikable and unpleasant personality.

Dunno... Keep in mind it's New York and the language and tone of voice is a little 'rougher' up there. Read the info page on him that someone posted here. From all accounts a heck of a good guy!

I'm not sure about you, but I'm guessing my personality probably wouldn't be very pleasant under those circumstances either.

I actually agree with you. But at the same time, the tape captured the essence of what was going on in that building thousands of times over.

Why we are fighting! This is no law enforcement problem, let's bomb them back to the stone-age. Well, they are living in the stone-age.....

I highly recommend that everyone watch the 911 documentary.

My Father in law is from Germany. While in a bunker in WW2, his mother was praying so loudly for the Americans to come, his dad was afraid someone was going to turn them in.
There are always a few.

I can say that I personally could take out that lady with no teeth they kept showing dancing in the streets that day with my bare hands.

Yep, a teacher who showed this video to his/her students would likely be fired immediately. .....and then prosecuted for committing a "hate crime" against Muslims.

How about "Deadly"

But that's what they're told to be in their Moon Demon-inspired instructional handbook.

A "peaceful" muslim is simply one who's run out of ammunition...

I think different people respond to these things in a lot of different ways. I have no idea of how I would react. I would hope, I would be gracious to the 911 operator who was under a lot of stress as well. I'm glad I've never had to find out.

"that KC guy was quite an unlikable and unpleasant personality."

Likely due to the panic of the situation. No telling how we'd behave/react in the same/similar situation.

This clip captures the horror of 9/11 like few others I've seen. I hope this clip was released with the family's permission.

Come to think of it,I think that the City of New York's policy is to release these tapes in which identities can be determined about WTC victims only with the consent of the family.

I'm sure you would have sounded like Mary Poppins after being trapped on the 105th floor of a burning building for what seemed like an eternity, waiting for help that never arrived.

I sort of felt that way too, until I listened to the whole thing. The guy didn't realize the totality of what had happened. He asked "What happened?" at one point. He seemed pissed off that help was so slow in arriving, as if he didn't realize that THOUSANDS were trapped.

I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt.

Kevin and I worked together for several years at T.A. Greene & Co. which later was acquired by Aon Corp. It was Kevin who introduced me to bratwurst at Hallo Berlin, a pushcart on the corner of 54th and 5th. We always got a kick out of eating "brats" on the corner and being entertained by the owner, Rolf. This one's for you, Kevin.

I had the privilege of knowing Kevin for only a year. I worked at Gulf Insurance at 388 Greenwich. Kevin would come up to Gulf when there was an audit. He was always so pleasant and we hit it off right away. Guess it was because we both loved German food. There was a good German restaurant he was going to get to in Glendale, Queens at some point.

Kevin, I know you are in heaven and are at peace. We all miss you and it was a special gift being your friend even for a brief time.

I recently finished reading "102 minutes" and read about Kevin Cosgrove. Kevin was my supervisor at Thomas Greene which was my first job out of college in NYC. He was a really nice guy and alot of fun. I only lasted 6 months at Thomas Greene but I still remember Kevin and the laughs we shared. My heart goes out to his family and my prayers are with them.

In Tewksbury, MA, we are erecting a monument to honor the 9-11 victims.
John and I have donated money in the name of Kevin M. Cosgrove. We are very proud to have done this. May his memory be cherished by all his loved ones.

Kevin Cosgrove was my uncle. Its been 4 years since i've actually able to talk about the World Trade center. I was in 5th grade when it happened, and yet the emotional feelings just won't let go. He was the kind of dad, uncle, family member that was always up for the fun part of the party. My dad has told me stories of how close he was with Kevin. My dad is the one of the seven children in the family, and my uncle Kevin was older then him. Whenever my dad had problems, he always went to Kevin. He told me how they went to parties and had fun as teenagers. Kevin always took him to the "cool" parties, seeing as how he was older then my dad. I miss my uncle very much, and when i go over the bridge that over looks the city, it is very heartbreaking. My dad just always looks over towards the city, not saying a word and just keeps driving and the look he has in his eyes when he looks away is the most sadest look i've ever seen on my dad. We go over the bridges a lot now and he is always getting that look. Sometimes i feel like he is just going to break down crying. Kevin always loved the ocean. After 9-11 it was very hard for any of my family members to go to the beach, knowing that a part of him was there, a part of him was always there and will always be there. He took my cousins, my sister and I to the ocean a lot. He took us boogie-boarding, went in the water with us, and bought us ice cream. He was the uncle i would want to point out to and be glad to say that he is my uncle. We miss you soo much unlce Kevin. The ocean may be big...but it is too small for this big family. As long as we all are together we can stand strong and look out at the ocean and remember that you are there, we are with you as we set foot into the sand that you now console. The sand, the water, and the memories will always be there, and always in our hearts...Forever! Love you

There's nothing wrong with trying to understand the average human being, but I get the sense (not just in this post) you favor trying to understand anyone, regardless of how sick and demented they are. There's just no point in trying to understand someone who would lop off my head or your head, without thinking twice, and for no other reason other than we're "infidels".

That's an unfair attitude to have,IMO.First,you don't know how much these guys knew of *exactly* what was going on.My guess is that he didn't know that WWIII may have begun about an hour before he made the call.If he thought it was just your "typical explosion",then maybe....

Also,anger may well be a common reaction in a desperate situation.

I've been in a fire.For a few minutes,I truly thought I was gonna die.My life *really did* pass before my eyes.So I'm reluctant to bash this guy while in one of the most frightening situations one can imagine.
