The Shredding of 9/11 Evidence
First, check out this rather incredible story.
F.A.A. Official Scrapped Tape of 9/11 Controllers' Statements
NY Times May 6 (excerpt)
WASHINGTON, May 6 — At least six air traffic controllers who dealt with two of the hijacked airliners on Sept. 11, 2001, made a tape recording that day describing the events, but the tape was destroyed by a supervisor without anyone making a transcript or even listening to it, the Transportation Department said today...
The taping began before noon on Sept. 11 at the New York Air Route Traffic Control Center, in Ronkonkoma, on Long Island, but it was later destroyed by an F.A.A. quality-assurance manager, who crushed the cassette in his hand, cut the tape into little pieces and dropped them in different trash cans around the building, according to a report made public today by the inspector general of the Transportation Department.
The inspector general had been asked by Senator John McCain, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, to look into how well the Federal Aviation Administration had cooperated with the 9/11 Commission.
The quality-assurance manager told investigators that he had destroyed the tape because he thought making it was contrary to F.A.A. policy, which calls for written statements, and because he felt that the controllers "were not in the correct frame of mind to have properly consented to the taping" because of the stress of the day.
End of excerpt.
Okay. We are talking about “at least six” air traffic controllers and two of the hijacked airliners. Presumably, all the taping activity occurred in one location on Long Island.
Did all six controllers make one continuous tape?
In which case, a number of tapes were destroyed.
And their remains were scattered in different trash cans.
The above story does not mention tapes that may have been made, in real time, as the hijackings of the two planes proceeded. I don’t know standard procedure in these situations, but it seems to me that air-controller headquarters do, in fact, record their conversations with pilots in the air---especially when those pilots are aboard hijacked planes.
Did the controllers actually talk to the pilots?
Or to hijackers?
It appears there may be two completely different sets of tapes: those made during the hijackings and those made afterwards by the controllers.
We are led to believe these controllers did not make written reports. I find that amazing.
This has all the earmarks of an extensive cover-up.
And the FAA manager says he destroyed the tape(s) because he felt the controllers were under too much stress to give informed consent to the after-taping. Gee, that sounds like something a lawyer would claim for his client, in a situation where the client has been charged with a crime.
And it is claimed that no one ever listened to these tapes. I guess the manager destroyed them as quickly as possible.
What about the people who assisted in the making of these tapes? Or did the controllers, all of them, simply set up a tape machine on their own in a room and start talking? If so, that sounds like they had something very important to say and wanted to get it on the record.
Who, in law enforcement, is talking to those controllers now? Why are we not hearing from the controllers? I guess they have gag orders.
One would have to be a complete idiot not to suspect a grand cover-up.
And yet…no major media outlet is yet screaming bloody murder.
Is it possible that the taping was supervised by someone from law enforcement? If so, the manager who destroyed the tapes should be in very hot water now. So far, it appears he is not. Maybe he received “higher orders” to get rid of the tapes, because they contained info that could blow the roof off 9/11.
The most stunning event since Pearl Harbor, and the manager shreds crucial evidence. An FAA quality-control manager. Quality-control. Under what standard chain of command was this guy operating? I thought quality control was merely about inspecting the competence of others.
Apparently, since 9/11, these controllers have been interviewed by law enforcement, and they have given official statements. What are the odds that these statements do NOT contain all the info laid down on those tapes?
There is no word that the manager has been charged with a crime.
THE CONTROLLERS WERE UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO GIVE PROPER CONSENT TO THE TAPING. Who the hell is kidding who?
THE COP AT THE CRIME SCENE WAS UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO GIVE A CREDIBLE STATEMENT.
THE SOLDIER AT THE TORTURE PRISON WAS UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO REPORT ACCURATELY ON WHAT WENT ON.
THE FBI AGENT WAS UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO REMEMBER WHAT HE SAW AT THE MURRAH BUILDING.
“See, the actor who plays one of the main roles on the daytime soap was too stressed out to give a good performance, so we took the tape of his scenes and we crushed it and we scattered the pieces in garbage cans all over the studio.”
“The Zapruder film of the JFK assassination? We took out some frames because we thought Mr. Zapruder’s CAMERA was so stressed out that day that it recorded things that didn’t actually happen.”
