Clinton to Blame for 9/11?

The right-wing lunatics are pushing an ABC/Disney documentary about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The "hack-u-mentary", which is supposedly based on the 9/11 Commission Report, holds various factual inaccuracies. For example, the documentary suggests that Bill Clinton ignored the Osama Bin Laden threat, refusing to "whack" him even when CIA operatives had him in their crosshairs. This is truly a DISNEY fantasy flick, and it shameful that ABC will air it. It is scheduled to air on September 10 and 11.

So how do we know the wingnuts are behind this? First of all, ABC refuses to give either Clinton, Albright, or Berger a transcript of the docudrama. Secondly, an ABC insider has emailed known-wingnut Hugh Hewitt with the following:

The Disney execs met all through the weekend - unheard of in this business - debating what changes would be made and what concessions should be given. Here is what looks to be the conclusion:

- There will be a handful of tweaks made to a few scenes.
- They are minor, and nuance in most cases - a line lift here, a tweak to the edit there.
- There are 900 screeners out there. When this airs this weekend, there will be a number of people who will spend their free evenings looking for these changes and will be hard pressed to identify them. They are that minor.
- The average viewer would not be able to tell the difference between the two versions.
- The message of the Clinton Admin failures remains fully intact.

In case you're wondering, that last two bits refer to the "edited" docudrama.

The way this prop-u-mentary is looking, it should have aired on FAUX NEWS!

Thankfully, there is something YOU CAN DO!

Call, write, or visit your local ABC station and voice your opinion on this humbuggery. In Chicago, we're getting ready to protest at the ABC studios in downtown Chicago, located on State and Lake, 15 minutes prior to every newscast.

We have to make our voices heard! If we let the nation watch this garbage, imagine what the implications will be? Bush will begin to look less-guilty, and the wingnuts will attempt to pummel Clinton to the ground anytime one of us criticizes King George, the Decider!

Before I go, I must say: FUCK WINGNUTS AND FUCK BUSH!

The whole "9/11 was Clinton's fault" is probably the most absurd thing that i've ever heard from the right. It's totally insane. I mean, not only did Clinton have nothing to do with anything related to 9/11, but even if he did, Bush had a whole fucking year in office to prevent it, and he didn't.

The one thing the "Bush is God" crowd forgets to mention is that during the Clinton Administration, we began conducting airstrikes in Afghanistan, Northern Africa, and Iraq. During the first nine months of the Bushit administration, no actions were taken whatsoever against terrorism. ABC, Bush, and the entire "Bush is God" crowd can suck my left nut.

Exactly dude!

Great piece brother!

One thing I forgot to mention, and is very pertinent to this discussion, is the Lewinsky debacle. If Clinton is to blame for 9/11, then Republicans such as Henry Hyde (R-IL) and Newt Gingrich are even more to blame for the impeachment bullshit. Clinton officials advised him not to go all-out against known terrorists because Republicans would charge Clinton admin with trying to take focus away.

Nevertheless, I won't say that is a viable argument. But if Clinton is to blame, so are the GOP hacks in Congress.

Let's face it. Republicans HATE the federal government, and their incompetence only makes it more visible.

You keep your interest in politics, and you're going to get somewhere. I said it before and I'll say it again, you're ahead of your time!

Thanks, man!

people choose to believe what they 'want' to believe. and no matter how rationally and objective you put things, people aren't going to listen fairly because they dont like being wrong. god i wish the ego could be surgically removed. sadly, this administration is probably going to get away with this.

im so sick of politics.

Not going to even bother.

I will however be making a post here tomorrow morning regarding a project I have been undertaking for the past several months. In addition this weekend I will be completing the Ken Hawk master list (as I believe BND is dedicating his blog as a tribute this Sept 11th I will hold off posting this in respect) and posting an NFL preview blog on the BigSportsDay page.
Ken Hawk has been a busy man lately, suffering a slight meltdown after Blabbermouth handed a 5.5 to the new Iron Maiden album. Unfortunately having a blitherisng spasm and pulling a washing machine on top of oneself wont fix things.
Hope you all are well.

Lefty Metalhead said...

Great to hear from you Hawk. Can't wait for the annoucement.

Great points Mr. Ronson.

i cant believe this horseshit that disney is trying to pass. perhaps its their fault that 9-11 happened. people in other countries probaly became sick to their stomachs after hearing hakuna matata 1 million times.

plus, if this current administration wants to blame the previous one, then perhaps georgie should be pointing fingers at his daddy

remember, it was the fuckstains at Mouse-schwitz (Disney) that blocked the release of Fahrenheit 911 during the time they were seeking a huge tax break from Jeb for their DisneyWorld property.
