    9/11 TV Film Sparks Clinton Administration Outrage

    news link

    ABC's upcoming miniseries "The Path to 9/11" is generating a firestorm among members of the Clinton administration, who claim the two-part, made-for-TV film is filled with factual errors and lies.

    Three members of the administration — former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, former National Security Adviser Samuel R. Berger and Clinton aide Bruce Lindsey, who now heads the Clinton Foundation — have sent letters to Walt Disney Company, parent of ABC, demanding that it re-edit or pull the five-hour film, scheduled for air Sunday and Monday nights without commercial interruption.

    The movie is a documentary.

    Documentaries should be as accurate as possible, especially on such a political and inflammatory subject. It doesn't matter whether it applies, Clinton, Reagan, or Bush.

    Remember when they did the movie on the Reagans and Nancy was so incensed, as alot of other people. Well, they pulled it.

    Supposedly the movie is bad and had alot of innacuracies. They were even going to market it to the schools, through Scholastic.

    I don't care what it says if it's accurate, but we all know you can "edit" a film, show pictures a certain way, and it changes your entire view. They're calling this a GOPumentary. He he.

    To be fair, they have to show the mistake of alot of people - FBI, CIA especially. They're really filming a pretty touchy subject, at an UNUSUALLY political time (right before elections?)

    Think about it.

    Sudan offered Bin Laden's head on a silver platter three times to Clinton and he said no - Clinton was more interested in receiving the Noble Peace Prize after his administration. He didn't get it.

    Well, I was trying to inject a little objectivity here, but I see that no one's interested in that.

    So my boots are made for walkin', and that's just what they'll do. So long, gang! Have fun - actually this subject probably belongs in the PP forum, and actually there is a thread on it there.

    This was talked about on Good Morning America. It is not a documentary. The makers of the show admitted it was a dramatization of the real events. I think this is wrong. They dramatized or changed events to make it more appealing to the viewers! I don't like that one bit.

    Here you go -

    Bill Clinton ignored repeated opportunities to capture Osama bin Laden and his terrorist allies and is responsible for the spread of terrorism, one of the ex-president’s own top aides charges.


    Mansoor Ijaz, who negotiated with Sudan on behalf of Clinton from 1996 to 1998, paints a portrait of a White House plagued by incompetence, focused on appearances rather than action, and heedless of profound threats to national security. Ijaz also claims Clinton passed on an opportunity to have Osama bin Laden arrested.

    Thanks for the link, Lady GL, but that article does not prove anything.

    Media Matters
    As Media Matters for America has noted, the false claim originated in an August 11, 2002, article on right-wing news website NewsMax.com that distorted a statement Clinton made on February 15, 2002. While addressing the Long Island Association's annual luncheon, Clinton said he "pleaded with the Saudis" to accept Sudan's offer to hand bin Laden over to Saudi Arabia. Sudan never offered bin Laden to the United States, and Clinton did not admit to the Sudan offer in that speech or anywhere else.
