ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The government completed its case against Zacarias Moussaoui yesterday with its most chilling piece of evidence, a tape from the cockpit of United Airlines Flight 93 that recorded the terrorists overwhelming the pilots on Sept. 11, 2001, slashing their throats and praising Allah before crashing the jet into a Pennsylvania field.

The 32-minute recording begins at 9:31 a.m. with terrorists forcing the two pilots at knifepoint to give up control of the aircraft. Apparently dragged outside the cockpit, the pilots can be heard begging for their lives. "I don't want to die!" one shouts.
