Skip to comments.Bill Clinton Personally Attempts to Get ABC's Path to 9/11 Mini-Series Recut
Posted on 09/01/2006 8:24:53 PM PDT by STARWISE
I told you people yesterday and the day before of a movie, a mini-series running on ABC on September 10th and 11th, called The Path to 9/11 and I told you that I have the DVDs. I also told you because I am in touch -- I am poor when I'm in New York -- I do not have a DVD player.
I don't. My apartment's got an old media room in it, it's got a laser disk player in it, but it doesn't have a DVD. Well, actually it has a DVD player in it, but the TV doesn't work. The projector does, and it's the only room in the house where there's a DVD player, and I can't watch DVDs on computers because I can't hear well through computer speakers. So I watched it. It's four hours.
I have the DVDs right here. I'm holding them in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. I watched on the plane flight home last night. I watched part of the first one. I had to go to the airplane to watch it. I'll tell you, this is called being in touch with the average American.
I couldn't watch a DVD at home. At any rate, let me just give you the upshot of this, because I've mentioned to you even without having seen it I know what it's about. The Path to 9/11 essentially chronicles everything we know that happened in the nineties that prevented the capture of Osama bin Laden.
It indicts the Clinton administration, Madeleine Albright, Sandy Berger.
It is just devastating to the Clinton administration. It talks about how we had chances to capture bin Laden in specific detail, which I will get to in just a moment.
That's not the point. I mentioned to you yesterday or the day before, the days are running together, that a friend of mine did this. His first name is Cyrus, and Cyrus has got some other film credits.
He took it to Washington in the middle of last week and screened it for people and it caused nearly bloody uproar where they showed it.
Richard Ben-Veniste went up in Cyrus's face and told him it was disgusting. This film was disgusting.
It caused all kinds of havoc and that led to the creation of efforts to try to get this program banned, put pressure on ABC to get it canceled and not run and so forth.
It also had a lot of people in the room that loved it. There were many people, Michael Barone saw it, a lot of people were in the screening there and loved it.
Here is what is happening today. Bill Clinton himself is going to call Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, and demand or ask that this mini-series, The Path to 9/11, be reedited and recut so as not to depict Bill Clinton and his administration as they are currently portrayed in this mini-series.
Bill Clinton himself is going to call Bob Iger -- and this is not breaking news; I got the e-mail on this last night, and there have been some local hosts out in California who have been talking about this, but there is a huge movement afoot from inside the Clinton administration to put pressure on ABC to get this thing recut, reedited, if not more.
Very powerful players obviously, much higher than just Richard Ben-Veniste and so forth.
You know, folks, the whole 9/11 Commission, if you go back and look at these things that we know now, the Clinton administration's ability to camouflage history, to rewrite it, is just amazing.
Look at who they got on the 9/11 Commission. They got Jamie Gorelick, who authored the wall, and this mini-series explains the wall and gives illustrations of fact of how it hurt our ability to capture Osama bin Laden.
I'll get to that in just a second. They had had Gorelick on there; they had Ben-Veniste (who was a partisan hack lawyer from the Watergate days), and Tim Roemer, who is a Democrat from Indiana, and that was to ensure that the Clinton administration was protected, and so that the top structural explanation for intelligence failure was white-washed.
I don't understand why the Bush administration, the Department of Justice, gave Burglar the sweetheart deal of the century, then suppressed all the evidence involved in his action. Like I asked at the time, can you imagine if Condoleezza Rice had pled guilty to a misdemeanor mishandling of classified information, the media sitting silent about it?
Rest at link
I hope you're wrong but you're probably not.
You could have a point about ABC getting queasy about pressure or not, but I'm not giving credit to BillyBubba for doing anything but preserving his legacy and covering his butt, per usual.. it's ALWAYS about HIM. He is a certifiable malignant narcissist.
Of course he is....but we shouldn't go overboard, I mean, ABC hasn't done anything but agree to air a fair film. We shouldn't give them ANY EXCUSE not to run it.
Wow, sorry to hear you don't like Rush, because after all this is Rush's quote:
I don't understand why the Bush administration, the Department of Justice, gave Burglar the sweetheart deal of the century, then suppressed all the evidence involved in his action.
CSPAN3 has been showing the 9/11 Cimmission hearing lately. Tonight they had John Ashcroft and that Roemer guy was really belligeriant.
Apparently she has an agenda against Rush and his opinions. Who knew?
OK. I'm first. I'll donate $100 to the Diana Irey for Congress campaign.
This is about him but they also believe it will sink HilaryCare if their incompetence is exposed. The truth is that he handcuffed our defenses with his hatred of the military and Justice Dept. Any exposure of this is dangerous to HilaryCare and the DNC.
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
A petition alone, won't do it, S. That's just fluff, and smacks of left-wing, wacko, mentally-ill, liberal-demokkkRAT partisanship, IMO.
DOJ has been very busy putting hundreds of terrorists and corporate criminals in jail.
We can only pray.
I have a much better idea and ABC can do it without caving in to any one.
If clinton wants to change / censor the movie I say let him. In fact I say lets encourage him. He and his minions should be able to censor any scene they want to. The more the merrier!!
But, ABC doesnt create any new images. They didactic the current creation just like you do any paper product. Instead of a black line display the following:
This scene was censored at the request of the democratic party through their leader william jefferson clinton.
And that verbage remains displayed for the exact same amount of time that the democrats wanted censored!
That way clinton can cut out whatever he wants to, ABC can bow down to the democratic party, and the American People can see that they have been clearly lied to. Everyone gets a piece of the pie and goes away happy!
RIGHT!! And Iran will surrender tomorrow because a formation of flying sows with a bad case of diarrhea is going to overfly their capitol!
Did you think Tom couldn't fight his own battle? You had to jump in to turn up the flame. You guys are a joke!
Your personal vendetta against Rush is between you and Rush. Carry on.
That is nothing but pure carp!
