Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
I’m a traditional person, and I’ve always thought of marriage as between a man and a woman, but I think this is something that the country is going to work out, and I suspect it will change in time because all of us who are fortunate enough to have really, really close friends — and some of my really, really close friends are gay — don’t want to see them discriminated against. ... whenever one senses that there is discrimination against some group of people, it behooves us as a country to look hard at what we’re doing. - Condoleezza Rice

Air Traffic Controllers Record Events Of 911 Terrorist Attacks
Started 2001-09-11 12Ended 2001-09-11 13
While it was still fresh in their minds at least six air traffic controllers gathered together to recount and record their thoughts on the terrorist attacks of September 11th. These people were the ones actually involved monitoring and reporting on two of the hijacked planes just hours before.
Kevin Delaney Interviewed By By FAA
Started 2003-11-30Ended 2003-11-30
In an interview with the FAA, Kevin Delaney talks about the taped recording with air traffic controllers recorded the day of September 11th. He stated he was given the job to transcribe all audio tapes related to the events of 911 and seven days afterwards. This task took him an others 90 days to complete, but they left out the air traffic controllers recount. Instead of transcribing the recount he stated that each of the controllers were asked to submit an official FAA statement to which the report says that Delaney’s statement contradicted other people’s claims that this was not true. He never says why he failed to include the tape even though he said he was not sure if anyone ever listened to the tape for fact finding.

He also tried to downplay why it took so long to report the hijacked planes to NORAD. The report summarizes him saying "an aircraft’s course does not necessarily translate in the mind of a controller to the possibility of a hijack ... but the thought of a hijack would eventually creep back into the controller’s thought process"

On another note Delaney stated that he believed that United flight 93 was shot down based on the eight mile span of the airplane’s debris.
Kevin Delaney Gets 20 Day Suspension For Destruction Of Evidence
Kevin Delaney was suspended for 20 days with out pay for the destruction of a tape of the six air traffic controllers that dealt with two of the hijacked airplanes on 911. In a statement the FAA said:

“The destruction of evidence in the Government’s possession, in this case an audiotape - particularly during times of national crisis - has the effect of fostering an appearance that information is being withheld from the public”

“We do not ascribe motivations to the managers in this case of attempting to cover-up, and we had no indication there was anything on the tape that would lead anyone to conclude that they had something to hide or that the controllers did not properly carry out their duties on September 11. The actions of these managers ... nonetheless, do little to dispel such appearances.”

They say this in spite of Delaney’s statement given to the FAA in 2003 where he says that no one listened to the tapes - so how could the FAA say that they found “no indication there was ... something to hide”?
