Bill Maher Takes On ‘The Path to 9/11’

Maher, along with guests Rob Thomas, P.J. O’Rourke and Joan Walsh, ripped into ABC’s undocu-drama, which pins the blame for 9/11 on Bill Clinton. Maher reminds us: As president, Clinton had a meeting a week about bin Laden; George W. Bush, before 9/11, had zero. Watch it on the jump.

How Would ABC Fictionalize Other Historical Periods?

A satire of ABC’s “The Path to 9/11” has popped up on YouTube. It envisions how ABC would dramatize Vietnam, the San Francisco Earthquake and the Revolutionary War. Not gut-bustingly hilarious, but significant in terms of how quickly these kinds of things appear nowadays. (h/t: AMERICAblog)

The Fictional Sandy Berger ‘Path to 9/11’ Scene

Watch the part of ABC’s undocu-drama “The Path to 9/11” in which Sandy Berger goes weak-kneed when presented with an opportunity to order the killing of bin Laden. DISCLAIMER: This never happened in real life, and is one of the most blatant falsehoods contained in the miniseries.

Keitel: 9/11 Undocu-Drama Should Be Changed

Harvey Keitel, who stars in ABC?s upcoming 9/11-themed miniseries, appeared on CNN?s ?Showbiz Tonight? to relate his own concerns over the project?s manipulation of history.  When asked if a work derived from 9/11 held a special obligation to the truth, Keitel responded: ?Absolutely, you cannot cross the line from a conflation of events to a distortion of the event. No. Where we have distorted something we have made a mistake?and that should be corrected.?

Keith Olbermann has been on a roll lately, contesting the administration?s ?recent Nazi kick? with a series of essays.  This time the ?Countdown? host went after the man himself, saying: ?Mr. Bush, you are accomplishing in part what Osama Bin Laden and others seek?a fearful American populace, easily manipulated, and willing to throw away any measure of restraint, any loyalty to our own ideals and freedoms, for the comforting illusion of safety.?
