Terrorism? Nah, It's Just Politics

Next to a picture of Howie Dean on Democratic Underground is a plea to Dems to protest ABC's documentary The Path to 9/11:
Does a major national broadcast network want to stain itself by presenting an irresponsible, slanderous, fraudulent, "docu-drama" to the American public?

Not if you and I have the last word -- but either way, we're about to find out.

The ABC television network -- a cog in the Walt Disney empire -- unleashed a promotional blitz in the last week for a new "docudrama" called "The Path to 9/11". ABC has thrown its corporate might behind the two-night production, and bills it as a public service: a TV event, to quote the ABC tagline, "based on the 9/11 Commission Report".

That's false. "The Path to 9/11" is actually a bald-faced attempt to slander Democrats and revise history right before Americans vote in a major election.
Excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but the documentary is airing on Sept. 10 and 11, which just might have more with the timing of the mini-series than the fact that there's an election in November.

And while we're on the obvious, is there just a smidgin' of a chance that Dems might just be open to a bit of criticism for their handling of the terror threat? Nah ....
