The Washington Post has the transcript from the flight recorder in United flight 93 -- the plane which passengers and crew forced down after it was hijacked on 9/11.
The recording adds weight to the stories of heroism that took place on the flight. As the Post headline says -- "Flight 93 Myth Becomes Reality."
The recording was played as part of the Moussaoui trial in Virginia.
With the transcript released, and a major film about the flight opening later this month, the passengers and crew are back in the spotlight as leading the biggest victory of the day - likely saving the Capitol and hundreds of lives on the ground.
It's time again to call on Washington to award the passengers and crew of Flight 93 this nation's highest civilian honor -- the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The medal was awarded to former CIA honcho George Tenent (left) for his "slam dunk" in intel leading up to the Iraq War. We've since learned that intel was seriously flawed. And let's not forget, the CIA failed us on 9/11.
The passengers and crew of Flight 93 didn't. (WashPost)
