The History Channel's 9/11 5th Anniversary TV Special:
..'COUNTDOWN to GROUND ZERO'..
Premieres: Sunday, August 13 @ 8pm ET/PT
A gripping, dramatic look, with the most recently released materials, at the extraordinary events of September 11th, 2001...not just this infamous day in history, but also how this day came to be through the dramatic stories of people whose lives converge at a moment when history turns. We'll recount the story of Al Qaeda's agents as they plan and execute the most deadly strike on the US since Pearl Harbor. It's also the story of the men and women who were attacked in the World Trade Center, and of the heroic rescuers who risked everything to save those trapped inside the doomed Twin Towers. And finally, it's also a political action thriller. It portrays FBI agents and counterterrorism experts in the months leading up to the attack as they desperately try to convince key players in both the Clinton and Bush administrations of the dangers of Al Qaeda and the possibility of a deadly attack on US soil.

Is this not the special that interviews Jamie Girlick, Madame Albright, Richard Clarke, and other Clintonistas?
If so, don't expect fair and balanced.
It is a huge (or should I say hugh?) attack on Rice and Rummy and indirectly on Bush.
The show you described is different and will be on ABC. But I don't really care when it airs as I intend to avoid it.
bump for publicity
If they interview Gorelick they should have been doing it in a federal prison, because that's where she should be. Look at this sentence from the article:
***It portrays FBI agents and counterterrorism experts in the months leading up to the attack as they desperately try to convince key players in both the Clinton and Bush administrations of the dangers of Al Qaeda and the possibility of a deadly attack on US soil. ***
Obviously, they don't tell the viewers that if Gorelick hadn't prevented the FBI and the CIA from cooperating with each other, 9/11 might never have happened.
Mrs.SUSAN RESCORLA's joyful unveiling of her 9/11 Lifesaver RICK RESCORLA's 'Follow Me' statue at Ft. Benning GA last April 1st is featured in this 9/11 TV Special.
if it on the History Channel, expect them to blame the Neo Nazis and Militia movement,with Morris Dees telling everyone that the Neo Nazis and the KKK is the real threat..
I stopped wacthing this channel when the dumped Mail Call.
Pinging a few friends...
Mail Call is supposed to have one more season left starting this fall. After that its fate is unknown.
Thanks for the ping, Star.
Thanks for the heads up.
Well I do like America Eats...
The unforgettable moment for me is when the second plane hits. You can see it in the eyes of the firemen. They knew, and we knew too. They were there. Some of us could only watch. At least we can support and be on the side of the good guys. Well, never, never, never give up.
The show isn't over yet, but I think it's a pretty good job.
It has some of the better graphics for getting across what happened.
Thank you for your TV head's up, HGC.
