Flight 93 Actual Audio Tape Here - Hijacker Told Cleveland Center There Was a Bomb on Board
The War Room, WRRK Pittsburgh ^ | 04-29-02 | Jim Quinn at The War Room

Posted on 04/30/2002 12:15:45 AM PDT by jrewingjr

This morning, Jim Quinn, host of "The War Room" (WRRK 96.9 FM Pittsburgh & warroom.com) played an audio tape made at Cleveland Center (flight control) on the morning of 9-11. To protect his source, Quinn would not say who gave it to him, but it apparently is genuine.

The tape starts with Cleveland Center attempting to reach the crew of Flight 93, as they were in Cleveland's zone at the time. Heard is Cleveland speaking to other pilots who state they had overheard "yelling" and "screaming" over the airwaves. Other pilots visually help verify Flight 93's position because the hijackers have not responded to Cleveland.

Then, a hijacker, speaking very rapidly, tells Cleveland that there is a bomb on board. Pilots in the air confirm that they heard the statement about the bomb, and that Flight 93 had turned and headed back east. The hijacker comes back on the air and again repeats that there is a bomb on the plane.

This isn't a transcript, it's AUDIO! To listen: click the link to go to the archives page of WWW.warroom.com. Select which way you want to listen, whether streaming, or an mp3 download for Monday, 04-29-02. The Flight 93 audiotape is played at 2 1/2 minutes into the show, and again at about 71 minutes in.

Also worth a listen: Immediately following the Flight 93 audio is the song "She Kissed a Hero". It's about Todd Beamer's wife kissing her husband goodbye on the morning of 9-11, not knowing at the time that she was kissing a hero goodbye. It will tear you up.

It is chilling to listen to. I heard it on either ABC's 20/20 or Primetime Live a couple of months ago.

When I heard this I just wanted to strangle the Achmeds again.

Hearing ground control and other pilot's reactions to what was happening reminded me of the firemen setting up operations inside the WTC in 9-11 documentary made by the French brothers. You hear the tension in their voices, they know something BAD is happening, yet everyone is staying professional and doing their jobs.

Has the site just stopped working? I got about 2 minutes into the show and it stopped at the Absolute gun control comment with respect to Germany.

You're welcome! Most of us have heard the bare snippets of cockpit recording that the public was allowed to hear, but this is the first time we're hearing this particular audio from the ground and other pilots in the air. So far as I know now, only FR and The War Room are covering this.

Quinn's next warroom show comes on again at 530 am Eastern (Free Live Streaming). I actually heard about FR for the first time on his show. : )

The server may be straining just a bit now. I have a feeling the site is getting slammed pretty hard right now streaming-wise. Lots of people are probably just streaming since the tape is just a few minutes in.

The mp3 download is pretty quick; I just download the whole show then I can fast forward or rewind as I wish, playing it clearly with no skips on WinAmp. I usually listen to the archived show while I'm FReeping here. I rarely have any problem on his site; keep trying and good luck with it.

I had Fox on mute as I was listening to the Cleveland Tower and the beginning of "She Kissed a Hero". They were showing footage of one of the towers coming down at the time and then footage of the raghead islamoterrorist arafat.

My feeling on this is that we must never ever forget; we must never ever forgive until arabic is spoken only in hell--and not even then. I certainly hope that I'm not confronted in person by some whining raghead today complaining about how he/she/it is being mistreated because of 9/11.

Yup--that is the original tape all right.

Some of the jargon they were talking about:

"Level three five zero" just means United 93 was cruising at 35,000 feet.

When you hear Cleveland Center say, "If you read me - Ident." He is asking for them to hit a button on the Transponder, or IFF (Identification Friend or Foe). The Ident button makes you light up like a Christmas tree on radar. The IFF code you are assigned is your "squawk."

I hope they allow pilots to be armed. Airline pilots are the most heavily screened profession in history. Medically, mentally, and for aptitude. One half of all airline pilots are former military officers.

The fact that some in the Dept of Transportation oppose arming pilots is madness.

Do a search of Israeli Airlines "El Al" (who arm their pilots) and see how many hijackings they have had.

That's probably how the rumor started that a plane that landed here on the 11th might have had a bomb on it.

I just got a copy of the MP3 of the 9/11 Howard Stern show. In retrospect, its amazing how much false information was making the rounds that day.

I hope this is being mirrored somewhere and downloaded big time.
I do not have high speed access at home, but hope it's still there in a couple of hours.
This is great. I don't need a reminder, though. There are plenty of facts to forever hold the Muslims "dear".

That sad excuse for a civilized culture is destined for a deserved and permanent oblivion.

This information was available immediately after the terror attack. I don't see why the audio is available, it's a terrible insult to injury......in my opinion. And a terrible invasion of privacy of the dead.

And no, I did NOT listen.

Excerpt below from this article:

Model for air travel security may be El Al
September 26, 2001 Posted: 11:31 PM EDT (0331 GMT)

By contrast, El Al planes are heavily guarded 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even during cleaning and maintenance.

All El Al pilots are veterans of the Israeli air force and are trained in handling weapons and in hand-to-hand combat.

They do not, however, carry guns in the cockpit.

The cockpit has bulletproof doors activated by a keypad from inside the cockpit.

Entire article is here:

http://www.cnn.com/2001/WORLD/meast/09/26/rec.el.al.security/

I've read several pieces that say El Al pilots are armed, and I've read just as many saying they're not. Maybe they like to keep folks guessing?

Thanks for posting. Even if you don't listen to the tape it is important to remember that there are people who HAD to listen to this bastard telling them they had a bomb on board. The traffic control employees make a living keeping planes and our skies safe. My heart goes out to them knowing they were unable to prevent this tradgedy. This they have to live with for the rest of their lives.

Yes I am a man and I did tear up listening to that song because I hope the day never comes that I have to kiss my wife goodbye and never see her again. Sure we will all die someday but not like that and not so sudden.

God bless everyone involved in helping keep the skies safe!
