The recordings of military commanders on September 11 were the basis for the 9/11 commission report and the film, United 93. But not all those tapes were released to the public. A Vanity Fair writer (and producer on “United 93”) reveals what we missed and how it changes the story. Plus Joe Lieberman and Ned Lamont vie for the African American vote in Connecticut’s Senate primary, a one-woman depicts a teacher’s life in New York City public schools, and your reflections on the heat wave.
