The AP is reporting that we're on the verge a historic release of tapes of the 911 calls made from the World Trade Centers in NY on 9/11. The victim's sides of the conversations will only be released, however, if the next of kin personally okay it. The families are also being given the opportunity to receive CD recordings of the unedited calls.

via the AP by way of Yahoo! News.

The city has sent out letters to 24 families of people killed in the Sept. 11 attacks advising them that partial transcripts and recordings of 911 calls made by the victims soon will be released to the public because of a court order.
The letters, sent by express mail on Friday, advised only family members whose dead relatives could be identified from the calls recorded by police and fire department operators.

The imminent release of the records was ordered by a judge in a case brought by The New York Times and nine family members of victims under the state's Freedom of Information law seeking fire department records.


The city said the transcripts and recordings likely would be released Thursday or Friday. It didn't say how many there are.


The article says that this isn't all without a bit of controversy. Apparently many family members weren't aware that their loved ones made 911 calls, and this letter came as quite a shock without any warning. The city apparently meant to send some email first, but there seems to have been some sort of mix-up.

Anyway, I suspect the 9/11 conspiracy theorists will attempt to make hay out of this too. I predict they'll say that the tapes have been held all this time because they aren't real, and the government had to make them up, and get rid of the "real" tapes from people who heard and saw the "bombs" that Bush and Rummy had planted in the buildings, and actually called 911 that day. Crazy as that sounds, it's in line with, and actually more realistic than most of the conspiracy theories these people come up with. Don't expect anything but disgracing these people's names and spinning of this information by the Alex Jones/Charlie Sheen conspiracy theory crowd.
