Posted on 09/01/2006 9:24:55 AM PDT by hipaatwo
I’m hearing all kinds of disturbing, though predictable, stories about a Clintonista offensive against “The Path to 9/11,” an ABC documentary written and produced by Cyrus Nowrasteh ("Into the West"), and directed by David Cunningham ("To End All Wars"). I haven’t seen it yet (although I hope to this weekend), but it is already drawing rave reviews from people who have (the piece is reviewed at FrontPage, here).
Apparently, the documentary recounts the bureaucratic bungling and lack of action against al Qaeda that was pervasive prior to the September 11 atrocities. It is by no means, I understand, pro-Bush. It is, instead, an effort to present history accurately. This evidently has many former Clinton officials and apologists in their default kill-the-messenger mode. Great pressure is being brought to bear on ABC and Disney to reopen the editorial process at this late stage (the documentary is supposed to air on September 10-11) so that the years 1993-2001 may remain forever airbrushed.
Will they succeed? This bears watching.
HELLO! Dang Clintons make me want to scream.
If it follows the 9/11 Commission Report, it should be interesting to see...but I somehow doubt it will.
Wow, this would undo their carefully crafted coverup via the 9/11 Commission ... of course they won't let it air as is.
Changes will be made. Can't have Clinton looking bad.
RUSH on this now- he's beside himself.....this is ABSOLUTELY unbelievable.
The beginning of Sept 11, 2001 attack:
Here's what Osama bin Laden said about Clinton's decision to "change direction" in Somalia (after following Murtha's advice), according to the Frontline documentary, "Hunting bin Laden":
"After leaving Afghanistan, the Muslim fighters headed for Somalia and prepared for a long battle, thinking that the Americans were like the Russians," bin Laden said. "The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the American soldier was a paper tiger and after a few blows ran in defeat. And America forgot all the hoopla and media propaganda ... about being the world leader and the leader of the New World Order, and after a few blows they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat."
As directly quoted from the actual Fatwa by Osama bin Laden in 1996:
From bin Laden's Fatwa:
"...But your most disgraceful case was in Somalia; where- after vigorous propaganda about the power of the USA and its post cold war leadership of the new world order- you moved tens of thousands of international force, including twenty eight thousands American solders into Somalia. However, when tens of your solders were killed in minor battles and one American Pilot was dragged in the streets of Mogadishu you left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you. Clinton appeared in front of the whole world threatening and promising revenge , but these threats were merely a preparation for withdrawal. You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew; the extent of your impotence and weaknesses became very clear. It was a pleasure for the "heart" of every Muslim and a remedy to the "chests" of believing nations to see you defeated in the three Islamic cities of Beirut , Aden and Mogadishu."
BIN LADEN'S FATWA, or Declaration of War, by Osama bin Laden was first published in Al Quds Al Arabi, a London-based newspaper, in August, 1996.
the truth always outs.
I'm listening to Rush. I googled clinton disney and this NRO article came up.
Bill Clinton is a perfect candidate for Scientology.
Make me want to BARF
This is an OUTRAGE. Just incredible.
Clinton trying to put in the fix.......
Don't let Sandy Berger near the script! (you'll end up with missing pages)
Click on your state, find your station and its phone number.
But the follow-up question that is never asked of the clintonistas is, "What were your plans for handling Bin Laden, that you had implemented, given your claimed worries about the dangerous terrorist?"
Unfortunately, the 911 Commission had Jamie Gore-lick on it and even THIS document was a full version of the perfidy of the Klintoons.
I just heard Rush talking about this. From his description of the series, it deals some pretty devastating blows to the First Felon and his Felonettes. Rush also said that Clinton was going to call Disney Prez Bob Iger and ask him to re-edit the series to 'sanitize' it of any truth about the Clintonistas.
We'll find out if Iger is a man of character and courage . . . . or just another Clinton boot licker.
My money's on the boot licker.
AFter reading the review you can see what Sandy Berger was doing stealing secret documents

I have been interested in seeing this miniseries - but assumed that it would be an anti-Bush film.
I'd like to ask fellow Freepers out there:
1. What have you heard about it?
2. Are you gonna watch it? Why? Why not?
And these Dems. call Bush a "fascist" as their boy Clinton is trying to suppress the truth and the free flow of information and facts?
What is it Clinton is so afraid of people seeing if he was just such the hyper-competent, on top of it all the time president he claims to be and the "best president in history" according to his more zombied supporters?
I hope they don't cave, but I'm betting they do.......they always do.........threats to the parties involved, their stocks, their kids futures, etc...........
I could feel my BP rising listening to Rush on this......he has seen the original.....as have many other people- so if ABC caves- it will NOT be a secret....
Cyrus Nowrasteh is a friend of Rush's. I heard Rush talking about this earlier in the week and thought then that this will NEVER see the light of day on ABC. It lays the blame for 911 squarely at the feet of Maddy Albright, Sammy Bergler and the Bent One. ABC will cave and pull it.
I'm in dark blue Philly. My local ABC is useless.
If they pull it now ... it will look even worse for the Clinton Gang
Man, if the Bush Admin were doing any such thing, the Dems would be up in arms with cries of "Cover Up!" and "Bush Lied!".
But let their boy Bill try and sanitize history and all we hear is the silence of the great lie by omission.
LOL... 'Hogzilla' = 'Hillzilla'
I'm wondering how this ever got made in the first place. Must have been filmed in top secret. No leaks, whatsoever........
It really pisses me off that two idiots, the Clintons plus their cronies, have so much power to intimidate. Hell, I have more respect for the Mafia than these two; at least the mob is more honest about what they are.
Thank you for the link.
ABC, is far from caving in. hey have spent big bucks and so has the advertisers, if they dont show it will be aired elswhere.
Who will hear about it but conservatives. Not like the Inkie or any other left paper will cover it.
I think she's more ham than hock.......
Face it, most folks don't follow politics the way we do. Millions of moderates will watch this show, folks who have NO idea of such things as who Jamie Goerlick was or how many times the Clintonistas could have nailed bin Laden but didn't. THEY will see the light, finally, and that is what has Sandy Berge stuffing documents in his pants and Maddie Albright sweating bullets.
O hope so. I'll believe it when I see it.
too bad noone watches network television anymore.
Don't bet on it. The affiliates are the net's soft underbelly. And since excrement flows down hill, they'll be on the receiving end of any bad publicity. The affiliates, and their advertisers, know this. Trust me :) Call anyway.
The Mafia is more moral...........
Let me make a prediction of what will happen, ABC Corp will cave and announce that they will let local affiliates decide for themselves whether they show the film giving them a nudge not to.
Count on the producers caving....the Clintonoids always win out.
In a sane world, one could call that hyperbole. But alas...
