Don’t mess with President Clinton.
As Josh told us about yesterday, ABC is planning to run a completely false documentary about the events of 9-11. Americans should be incensed by this fictional depiction of the tragedy and should sign this petition to tell ABC that they should not run this show.
But it seems that no one is more upset about this film than President Bill Clinton. Clinton is the target of many allegations in this film and he’s fighting mad.
From the NYPost:
WASHINGTON – A furious Bill Clinton is warning ABC that its mini-series “The Path to 9/11″ grossly misrepresents his pursuit of Osama bin Laden – and he is demanding the network “pull the drama” if changes aren’t made.
Clinton pointedly refuted several fictionalized scenes that he claims insinuate he was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about bin Laden and that a top adviser pulled the plug on CIA operatives who were just moments away from bagging the terror master, according to a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger obtained by The Post.
The former president also disputed the portrayal of then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as having tipped off Pakistani officials that a strike was coming, giving bin Laden a chance to flee.
“The content of this drama is factually and incontrovertibly inaccurate and ABC has the duty to fully correct all errors or pull the drama entirely,” the four-page letter said.
