Why Clintonistas don't like 9/11 movie
ocregister ^ | September 16, 2006 | LARRY ELDER

Posted on 09/16/2006 1:10:59 PM PDT by ncountylee

"I don't want any lies in there parading as the truth, that's all." With that, on the fifth anniversary of 9/11, former President Bill Clinton (the man impeached by the House of Representatives for lying under oath), struck again.

Before the airing of ABC's docudrama "The Path to 9/11," former members of the Clinton administration and several Democratic senators complained about the docudrama's "fabrications" and "lies" in letters to Robert Iger, CEO of Disney, ABC's parent company.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright urged ABC to cancel its scheduled airing on September 10 and 11. She called a scene in which she alerted the Pakistanis to an impending strike against bin Laden "false and defamatory." Implicitly threatening to yank ABC's broadcast license, several Democratic senators wrote, "Presenting such deeply flawed and factually inaccurate misinformation to the American public and to children would be a gross miscarriage of your corporate and civic responsibility to the law. . . . " Where's the ACLU when you need them?

Okay, the Clintonistas criticize conversations or actions that never took place. And, true, an earlier version of the docudrama – not aired – stressed that the research came from the 9/11 Commission. In fact, the docudrama also used a couple of books about 9/11, as well as interviews.

Let's review.

The first attack on the World Trade Center occurred in 1993, Clinton's first year in office. For the next eight years, his administration squandered several opportunities to kill bin Laden. Besides, the docudrama comes down hard on the Bush administration for dawdling during its eight months before 9/11.

The Clintonistas liked "Path to 9/11" about as much as Cinderella's sisters liked her gown and slippers.

Because it's factually represent their mindset.

Really ironic that the SAME week the Path to 9-11 is show the 4 RINO stoodges, cheered on by all 45 Democrats Socialists stoodges in the US Senate, are busy trying to recreat the absurdly PC system that failed so disasterously in the run up to 09-11-01

The World Trade Center bombing was the February 26, 1993, terrorist attack in the garage of the New York City World Trade Center. A car bomb was detonated by Arab Islamist terrorists in the underground parking garage below Tower One. It killed six, injured over 1,000 people.

Two days later...

Few Americans realize that on February 28, 1993 when BATF agents in National Guard helicopters zoomed in on the Branch Davidians' church and home, Mount Carmel Center, they did so with guns blazing, like Americans raiding a Vietnamese village in that far off war

Revisionist History
"Path to 9/11" Prompts the Question: Who's Guilty? Disney/ABC or the Clinton Administration Crowd ?

By John E. Carey
September 10, 2006

Let’s just review for a moment the affair of one Samuel “Sandy” Berger and the National Archives.

On Thursday, July 22, 2004, Washington Post staff writers John F. Harris and Susan Schmidt, wrote “Last Oct. 2, former Clinton national security adviser Samuel R. ‘Sandy’ Berger stayed huddled over papers at the National Archives until 8 p.m. What he did not know as he labored through that long Thursday was that the same Archives employees who were solicitously retrieving documents for him were also watching their important visitor with a suspicious eye.”

The employees of the National Archives suspected that Sandy Berger was stealing classified government archives about terrorists from his tenure as President Clinton’s National Security Advisor.

They were right.

John F. Harris and Susan Schmidt wrote, “The documents that Berger has acknowledged taking -- some of which remain missing -- are different drafts of a January 2000 ‘after-action review’ of how the government responded to terrorism plots at the turn of the millennium. The document was written by White House anti-terrorism coordinator Richard A. Clarke, at Berger's direction when he was in government.”

Harris and Schmidt also reported that, “Sources have told The Washington Post, and other news organizations, that Berger was witnessed stuffing papers into his clothing.”

Transporting classified government documents without proper authorization is a serious offense. Stealing historical records from the national Archives is equally heinous.

But the real crime that Sandy Berger, and other Clinton Administration personnel, may be guilty of is this: “revisionist history.”

After September 11, 2001, everyone in Washington DC asked the same questions: How could this happen and why weren’t we forewarned?

In fact, “we” were forewarned. There were many events that should have set off alarm bells during President Clinton’s Administration.

A few of the events among these warning signs include: the first World trade center bombing (February 1993), the discovery of the Lincoln and Holland tunnel plots (Spring 1993), the car bombing of the U.S. military headquarters of the United States in Saudi Arabia (November 1995), the truck bombing of the U.S. military housing facility Khobar Towers (June 1996), the truck bombings at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania (August 1998), and the bombing of USS Cole (October 2000).

Less than one year later, the World Trade Center and the pentagon were hit on September 11, 2001.

This brings us to the loud and vocal protestations from Clinton Administration loyalists to the Disney/ABC production which starts to air tonight, “Path to 9/11.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, Clinton Foundation head Bruce Lindsey and Clinton adviser Douglas Band all wrote in the past week to Robert Iger, CEO of ABC's parent The Walt Disney Co., to express concern over “The Path to 9/11.”

What do they have to hide?

Add to that, highly partisan Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York reportedly composed a tough letter to Robert A. Iger, CEO of Walt Disney, ABC's parent company. The letter cites two scenes from the program casting doubt on the Clinton administration's legacy in fighting terrorism.

Slaughter added as co-signers of the letter three senior Democrats who would join her as committee chairmen if Democrats won control of the House. They are Rep. John Dingell of Michigan, senior member of the House; Rep. Jane Harman of California, a top party spokesman on national security; and Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, a left-wing leader.

What do they have to hide? Or is this just a self-serving case of piling on for personal gain?

And what respect do they have for freedom of speech?

When Oliver Stone made his movie “J.F.K.” depicting the president’s assassination as the product of a government conspiracy, do you recall this level of protest?

So we take caution and pause when we hear these vociferous protestations from the Clinton Camp.

We don’t much like revisionist history. And we wonder what the members of the Clinton Administration want to shroud from public view.

"I don't want any lies in there parading as the truth, that's all."


What does clinton know about 'Truth'?

If they'd shown 'Path to 9/11' every night for the next 6 month's with a new episode every night, they still wouldn't have exposed all the truth behind the lies clinton and his administration told.

Hey anyone see Sean Delonas` cartoon today in the NY Post? Freggin` awesome! They don`t have it on the Post website yet, but he drew this cartoon of Clinton sleeping through every single terror attack in the `90`s, he actually lists each one and has a picture of Clinton snoring...Then it comes to 2006 and this 911 movie and he has Clinton waking up yelling "I fought terror!!"

This right here is the number one reason why democrats can NEVER again be allowed back into power. A threat such as this is truely frightening. Strangely, very little has been made of this threat by our totalitarian MSM. I wonder why...

The Clinton administration and its stooges can only rely on the media to give them a favorable place in history. Certainly, future historians who will have the records in front of them, will not. If the truth is just beginning to seep out now, imagine the flood of truth that our children and grandchildren will see! A traitor's cover lasts just so long.

If you haven't heard of Michael Ramirez, he's a stand-up guy.
He was editorial cartoonist at Memphis' "Commercial Appeal" newspaper,
then was basically the token conservative at The Los Angeles Times
until being pushed out with all the re-shuffling going on.

Two notable things:
1. When Trent Lott was being battered about having appeared before
some Southern-heritage group that Democrats said was racist (name of
group escapes me), Ramirez essentially said "hey, I've done a presentation
with that group and met a lot of them, but they aren't racists!"
(Ramirez is an American of Phillipino extraction)

2.
He did an incredible cartoon on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
It showed an MP at a checkpoint with the dialog-bubble of
"Don't ask? Don't tell?"
over his head, looking at a jeep with a soldier driving and a sheep in the
passenger seat...

I saw it on a website (before I knew how to "appropriate" .jpgs)...
it was gone in a day thanks to big fit thrown by the GLBT advocacy groups.

I saw some of the clips before the edit. They took out the action scenes where they were in position to get UBL. By taking these out, it makes Clinton look worse.

We can still make the connection as to why Sandy Berger stuffed the 9/11 Commission documents in his pants.

But most of us watching understand that the enemies are the terrorists.

America Media, Inc. is reporting this week that HILLARY pressured DIANE SAWYER real hard into putting pressure on ABC Executives to CANCEL their incoming 'Path to 9/11' TV Special of CLARITY altogether. Of course, this is not being reported in the mainstream news media at all.

The carrot HILLARY was dangling over SAWYER's head was a stern reminder of how DIANE had been granted sole immediate interview access
to BILL CLINTON after his heart operation =

Manipulation of the Media BIG TIME.


During the Vietnam War, Communist Dictator of North Vietnam that both HILLARY & BILL CLINTON actively supported ..HO CHI MINH...

...repeatedly told the world thru his Hanoi Radio Media Arm that there wasn't a single one of his Soldiers fighting inside a then Free South Vietnam.



However,

...during the 1st Battle of the Vietnam War in November 1965 between American & HO's Communist North Vietnamese Soliders...

...a picture was taken of just such Communist North Vietnamese Solidiers we had captured during that Battle.

Well inside a then Free South
Vietnam..!!!


HILLARY = HO CHI MINH

I have been doing a little research and discovered from many sources that the Senator from NY herself told her puppet in chief hubby not to go after Bin Laden because the political risk was too great to him. Perhaps this is a secret they didn't want told as well.

I don't understand why Sandy isn't in prison, forced to testify about what he stole and why, etc. This is a total miscarriage of justice. I also don't understand why the Clinton's who so freaking obviously broke the law over and over and over, are also not only walking the streets, but she is poised to become the first female (?) President of the US.
