THe Path to 9-11

About: abc.com: the path to 9/11

This might be a very interesting docudrama purported to break apart some of the bias of the 9-11 commission. It is said that Clintons tried to have it re-written or not aired at all.

I guess a good contraversy doth not the ratings hurt ...

WASHINGTON - A furious Bill Clinton is warning ABC that its mini-series "The Path to 9/11" grossly misrepresents his pursuit of Osama bin Laden - and he is demanding the network "pull the drama" if changes aren't made.
... I'll probably watch it if i'm around even though i'm sick to death of 911.

I think if you look at this film as fiction you will not be dissapointed.  If you look at it as a documentary, you will be deluded.

Ms. Albright said, she has been told by people who have seen it that it

It is funny that the Clintonistas didn't object when Michael Moore created his monumental pack of crap Fahrenheit-911 - isn't it ?


Mark de LA says
So much for free speech!  Apparently the Democrats & Clintonistas can handle the heat. Now Harry Reed is threatening ABC's broadcast license.  With all the lies that the mainstream media spread with their megaphone on the Valerie Plame-Joe Wilson debacle they should now be ashamed of themselves & be outraged that one of their own is having it's free speech rights threated from a major political party.

If you watch CNN you will have seen Clinton's actual take on this which i feel makes a lot of sense:  If the film claims to dramatize the 9/11 Commission report, then it should not portray events which contradict what was in that report  (sorry for the loose paraphrase). And i don't see how writing a letter to urge someone not to tell a lie can be construed as impinging on their "free speech".   Had i have been in an appropriate position prior to Michael Moore's publishing his  hack job on Bush, i would have written a similar letter.
It is NOT a drammatization of the 9/11 report it is a drammatization of what led up to 9/11 ONE OF WHICH references was from the 9-11 commission. GET the DIFFERENCE!  It is drama which is NOT YET published on ABC.

Have you seen the 2 or 3 Flight 93 drammatizations ?  Now a lot of those scenes can't be validated because they are ALL DEAD!   The Clintonistas coverups are similar.  The head of the 9-11 Commission was a consultant & apparently approved.

Other hypocrisies show up when the Reagans series was made here.

This is my favorite cartoon on the subject - see Cox and Forkum.

   As a work of pure fiction I would probably give S's suggested thought a D- .
Well it would be a dramatization of actual events if i get the budget that i want.  There are plenty enough documented facts on which to base the drama.  But you can call it pure fiction if it makes you feel better.  I actually would like to see one of these docu-dramas that was not a hack job. 

Here is another potential scene ... Rumsfield saying to Brig. Gen. Mark Scheid in the war planning room that "he would fire the next person" who talked about the need for a post-war plan.  Maybe we could get funding to send you to the Pentagon to interview him before he retires.  Verify that he is a crediable source.  Now i realize that there is a long tradition of US presidents deceiving Congress and the American people to get them to go to war.  I just think they should be aware of this tradition so that they can think twice the next time a president starts beating the drums.  Like you say ... movies can drive a message home.  Hopefully they will not all be hack jobs, like Farenhaight 9-11.
It will take decades before all the shit comes out; mostly waiting for the old generals, Clintonistas & Bushies, now trying to cover their own asses, to die out.  Look how long it took for what's his name to admit to being deep-throat of Watergate fame (or Armitage to admit to leaking)!

What i'd like to see now is a dramatization of the findings of the Senate Intelligence Commitee's Report on pre Iraq War Intelligence. I watched a bit of this last night on C-SPAN and believe you me it would make a good plot.  You could have a scene of Muhammad Atta not meeting Iraqi consul in Prague.  You could have scenes of Bush asking the CIA to connect Sadam with Al Qaeda.  Get me a commission and i'll write the screen play myself.  Lot's of good reasearch.  Of course ther's nothing new here, all of this has already surfaced ... err except the parts of the report that were classified ... hopefully we will get leaks on those.  We could show scenes of Bush & Chaney reading and talking about CIA briefing documents declaring  no linkage - then cut to their actual public assertions to the contrary.  Keep it as close to real life as possible ... script only those parts which can be surmised to have happened ... no hack job necessary here.  Then show Congress passing the go to war bill.  Maybe a scene after the war of people looking for them and saying "What ... where are they ".  Then maybe end with scenes of outraged Iraqui.  Really i'll write the screne play ... just send my advance check to Renton.  I already got my source material at hand here and here.

   As a work of pure fiction I would probably give S's suggested thought a D- .

   The 9-11 commission was somewhat horseshit & probably not the final word (although there are a lot in the Clinton administration who hope it is.   Jamie Gorelick, who was the architect of the wall between the FBI & the CIA to keep them from talking to each other, was a member of the commission - what were they thinking ? Talk about the fox guarding the hen house , ha!  On another note Sandy Berger (He had Condi Rice's first position of national security advisor in the Clinton Administration) was convicted of taking classified documents related to the 9-11 inquiry from the national archives) - nobody knows what he put back or what might be missing now. Since then there has been a whole cache of documents captured from Iraq which are still being translated & interpreted; some suggesting all kinds of differing results from the commission's sanitary investigation.

   I'm more waiting for the docudrama about the attempt to suppress the docudrama on The Path to 9-11 .

   Clintonistas are trying to smear the movie & it's content faster than cum stained Monica's Lewinsky's blue dress.  I hope ABC does very little politically correct editing of the drama & that the Clintonians sue then maybe finally we can shake out more of the real details about what led up to this tragic moment in our history.

This joke from Cox & Forkum entitled Confronting Terrorism V   should not be left out of this item's context! (It will probably move out when the next one comes.



Mark de LA says
More comments on the attempt to squash the docudrama by the Clintonistas. Some details worth looking into.


Mark de LA says
Here are more comments after the airing. Not a bad movie. Somewhat disconnected.  If you didn't already know the players & facts, your probably got lost. Plenty of blame to go around for the bureaucracy - hopefully some of it corrected by now. The timeline of terrorism that had already happened by 9-11 is chilling.  Seeing all that in one long movie should have awakened a few people.
