ABC’s Undocu-Drama Airs With Few Changes

In spite of (or perhaps because of) all the heat and negative publicity, ABC/Disney ran the first half of its fictionalized “The Path to 9/11” miniseries last night.

So That’s Why the Death Toll Figure Was Low…

It appeared for a while that the death toll had dropped drastically in Iraq in August, but then word leaked out that the initial numbers were two-thirds too low. We didn’t know why.
