FAA Managers Destroyed 9/11 Tapes

NY Times has it too

Six air traffic controllers provided accounts of their communications with hijacked planes on Sept. 11, 2001, on a tape recording that was later destroyed by Federal Aviation Administration managers, according to a government investigative report issued today.

According to the report, a second manager at the New York center promised a union official representing the controllers that he would "get rid of" the tape after controllers used it to provide written statements to federal officials about the events of the day.

Instead, the second manager said he destroyed the tape between December 2001 and January 2002 by crushing the tape with his hand, cutting it into small pieces and depositing the pieces into trash cans around the building, the report said.

The tape's existence was never made known to federal officials investigating the attack, nor to FAA officials in Washington. Staff members of the 9/11 panel found out about the tape during interviews with some controllers who participated in the recording.

1. Cal, Randi Rhodes is talking about this now
"Get rid of the tape"?

WHY?

Does anyone else find this as outrageous as I do? Why the HELL are we destroying evidence before any investigation?

Well, then again, we all know why, don't we?

2. M'kay, but...
Why would a union official want the tape destroyed? What sense does that make?

6. Black Ops...
Planted, undercover operatives...

It's how they do it.

Sleeper cells? The Black Ops boys are everywhere...and they don't take orders from bin Laden...

What's that? Did I hear something stirring in the command bunker undeneath Dick Cheney's renovated residency?
