Activist Group Posts 573,000 '9/11 Pager Messages'

HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS: This was intended to be a virtual re-enactment of 9/11. A few minutes after the first hijacked airplane slammed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, text pager services in New York and Washington DC lit up with thousands of messages from people trying to contact loved ones. While internet servers and cell phone networks crashed across New York City, text pagers continued to function.

An archive containing the contents of more than half a million pager messages sent on 11 September 2001 was published by the internet site Wikileaks. It provided an uncensored and sometimes deeply moving first-hand account of the attacks on New York and the Pentagon.

HERE'S THE BAD NEWS: The half million 9/11 messages are no longer to be found at: and they cannot be found anywhere online.

AND HERE'S THE LATEST NEWS: Concerned about the release of 500,000 intercepted pager messages from Sept. 11, 2001, Rep. Peter King said he plans to have his Washington staff begin a preliminary investigation. "It does raise security issues, and we will look into it in Washington," King (R-Seaford), the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Homeland Security, said Friday.

According to the Wayback Machine, This is what Wikileaks looked like before it was pulled. The quote below was copied from that page:

"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then, to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in broad daylight!"
Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898)
