Last week, the ABC
show The Path to 9/11
was a big deal. Before it aired, former Clinton officials criticized
it. After watching the film, I can see why they are upset. This movie made Clinton and anyone associated him with look bad, really bad. In comparison, Bush and his people come off as indifferent. Besides that, I found the movie tedious and boring to the extreme. If this film was a docu-drama, why use fiction? There are plenty of TRUE sources out there. Some of Clinton's people have written their books, boatloads of documents are still there, and then there's this gem
. With people such as former US ambassador to Yemen Barbara Bodine
(who is depicted in the movie) coming out and saying
this flick's crap, how couldn't ABC done their research for this flick to the max? I guess that if you are making a biased docu-drama, true research doesn't matter.
Mark Twain once called the Book of Mormon "chloroform in print". The Path to 9/11
could be easily described as chloroform on film.
For that, it's fitting.
