9/11 audio recordings provide vivid picture of that fateful day

(CNN) - Extensive audio recordings from September 11, 2001, capture a raw, vivid, moment-by-moment account of the terrorist attacks, directly from those who were in the middle of the crisis.

In excerpts posted online - some of which were declassified only within the past year - listeners can hear everything from the wrenching words of a flight attendant on a hijacked airliner and the haunting voices of two of the terrorists in the cockpits, to the cross talk of air controllers and military officials as they come to realize the extent of the attacks.

    Governor Perry is right now asking the Federal Government for funds due to the fires in the state of Texas. He is the same person saying government to big. The state of Texas should be self sufficient. What can he do as president better than he doing as governor. The only thing I see him doing is spewing HATRED.

    I want to know which of the candidates have actually READ the "ObamaCares" plan which of the policies they would eliminate. And does Michelle Bachman believe that God was sending a message to Erik Cantor and Chris Christie by flooding their regions so they'd have to beg for Federal assistant? And does that same theory fly for the hellish situation raging in Texas since Perry got rid of firefighters?

    And can the collection of clowns on stage come up with an example of when slashing expenditure did NOT lead to a deepening economic downturn! Other the Perry's "D" in college economics and being on academic probation, what qualifies him–or ANY of the others–to speak knowledgably about economic, climate and education issues?

    It was very unfortunate that on Sunday morning's program, when you interviewed two leading American Muslims, including a Congressman, you failed to ask why there were spontaneous outbreaks of celebration in Patterson, NJ; the Palestinian territories, and other Muslim population centers. You might have also asked them why, in their estimation, most Arabs still do not believe that the terrorists were, in fact, Arabs.

    For presidential candidates that want to repeal the Health Care Bill, please ask if they plan to reverse the pre-existing clause that has helped so many or the coverage for children until age 26, and other benefits of this plan. Thanks.
