scanning the radio frequencies in search of Osama bin Laden around the
Tora Bora region, two top US marine officers accidentally contacted Bray
teenager, David Byrne, over a mobile phone link, causing chaos in the
classified military installation and the calling of an air-strike over
the Baggot street area.
following is a partial transcript of the conversation between Lt Dwayne
Harrison, Colonel Whitmore and Byrne during the twelve minute exchange:
Harrison: Who is this?
Byrne: Hello? I can't hear yeh that well...hang on a second yeah,
Harrison: Identify yourself.
