The Words "Took Them Long Enough"...

...don't cover the half of it. For some bizarre national security reason, these tapes were delayed in release.

Download actual audio of firefighters from the World Trade Center at the site linked above.

So sad.

I knew a guy in high school who was a firefighter in the WTC, and died there. His twin brother is a good friend from the mailing list I mentioned elsewhere on the blog. I can only imagine how he feels, some of the anger and frustration and loss he must be going through, to hear these tapes and see the transcripts, as well as the oral histories of the men who survived.
