New 9/11 Audio Tapes Detail Horror of the Attacks in Real Time

(By Madeleine Morgenstern, The Blaze) - Previously unreleased audio files detailing the unfolding horror of the Sept. 11 attacks have been made available to the public.

This is the first time the complete communications recordings between military and civilian air traffic controllers as they were dealing with the hijackings have been released.

“We have a problem here. We have hijacked aircraft headed towards New York and we need you guys to, we need someone to scramble some F-16s or something up here to help us out,” a worker at a Boston control center says at 8:37 a.m., according to the recordings. No planes had struck any targets yet.

The official on the other end of the line asks if it is all a test.

“No, this is not an exercise, this is not a test,” the worker says.
