What's this all about?
ABC/Disney plans to memorialize the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with a fictional docudrama called "The Path to 9/11". Written by an avowed right-wing activist, this work of fiction directly contradicts the accepted record of the 9/11 Commission Report. President Clinton and former administration officials were denied an advance copy; Rush Limbaugh and obscure right-wing bloggers saw it last week. ABC plans to distribute this docudrama to 100,000 educators across the country. We've set up this site to encourage ABC to change its strategy. READ MORE.

DNC Sending Out an Email, Politicians Sending Letters

The Democratic National Committee is sending out this email asking people to keep the movie off the air. It links to this site.

Meanwhile, Representatives John Conyers, Jr., John Dingell, Jane Harman, and Louise Slaughter are demanding that ABC correct the factual inaccuracies in the movie.

It's not strictly partisan, as Bush's top counterterrorism official has sharply criticized the movie.

Thanks for putting together such a comprehensive site. I actually found it from the blog entry and link on the DNCs website.

"An ABC insider sent this missive to right-wing blogger Hugh Hewitt about potential edits to the film:

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."
