abc911.jpgIn response to growing public outrage about its upcoming $30 million “docudrama” called “The Path to 9/11,” ABC TV has shut down the show’s official blog (replacing it with a website about the show.)
ABC is billing the movie as an objective account based on the 9/11 Commission Report, but the miniseries – which blames the attacks on the Clinton administration — is riddled with misinformation.
Richard Clarke, the former counterterrorism czar, has already exposed a key scene as pure fiction: “this scene—which makes the incendiary claim that the Clinton administration passed on a surefire chance to kill or catch bin Laden—never happened. It was completely made up by [writer and producer Cyrus] Nowrasteh.”
The right wing is working hard to whitewash the Bush administration’s total failure on terrorism, says The Path to 9/11 glosses over the terrible negligence of President Bush and Condoleezza Rice, who ignored an intelligence briefing entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States.” The Bush administration ignored warnings from outgoing Clinton security officials to focus on the threat of a domestic terrorist attack.
UPDATE: Today, Wednesday, the blog is back.
