Footnotes of 9/11

During the week leading up to the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, CNN will premiere four one-hour productions.

In investigations led by chief medical correspondent Dr.Sanjay Gupta, investigative correspondent Drew Griffin, and anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien, CNN is reporting new insights into the health consequences experienced by the first responders working at New York’s Ground Zero, examining the events of that day through the eyes of people who were on the front lines of one of America’s most tragic days, and profiling several unsung heroines who saved lives on that day.

On Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 11:00pm (replay on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 9:00pm), CNN will debut "Footnotes of 9/11”, featuring interviews with people who went to work on Sept. 11, 2001 – and unexpectedly became part of history. Each of the eight people profiled by Drew Griffin for this documentary is mentioned in The 9/11 Commission Report – their unique experiences are drawn from the 1,742 footnotes of that report and offer critical detail to the tragic events of that day – are literal and figurative footnotes to one of America’s darkest days.

    Regarding UA dispatcher "what should i have said" my son was a co pilot on a UAL fiight from China to SFO. He felt they were not gven enought info. just a cryptic "beware cockpit encursion" what the hell did that mean? He felt more info would have helped. they had 4 cockpit crew on board. They could have stationed the 2 off duty pilots in the cockpit with fire axes. They know very little until they got info from US regular radio as they got closer to the US. they were one of the very last planes to land. He said it was like listening to the famous radio broadcast of "war of the worlds" that scared millions in the US in the 1930;s. imaged how unreal it was if you could see the TV broadcasts that made it real to the rest of us. SFO was deserted went they finally cleared customs. His 6 yr daughter after hearing all the kids taking at school near Seattle was certain her dad was dead and had to be taken to the office so she could talk to her Dad on his cell phone. He got in his junker airport car and drove 15 hours home. UAL did communicate the fact that more than 1 of its plane had been hijacked to others still the air.
