WikiLeaks Releases Half-Million Text Messages Sent During 9/11/2001

You will notice that not all the messages are about the attack as some are automated. You will also see that as the day goes on a higher percentage does relate to the attacks. The only thing I ask you is to respect the people who sent these messages by not contacting them if you do not already know them. These messages are apparently real as is likely the numbers as well. That is why I ask you not to contact them.

"From 3AM on Wednesday November 25, 2009, until 3AM the following day (US east coast time), WikiLeaks released half a million US national text pager intercepts. The intercepts cover a 24 hour period surrounding the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington.

The messages were broadcasted "live" to the global community — sychronized to the time of day they were sent. The first message was from 3AM September 11, 2001, five hours before the first attack, and the last, 24 hours later.
An index of messages released is available here.

All pager messages released can be downloaded here as a single compressed text file.
