American Freedom of Speech Isn't as Secure as You Think
26 October 2008 | by (Pasadena, California) – See all my reviews

This documentary lays out the hard facts, and it should disturb all Americans who believe in freedom of speech. The "Path to 9/11" docudrama was suppressed by political censorship. This is on the record. Prominent Senators wrote to ABC and threatened the "review" their broadcast license. Mainstream Democrats jumped on whatever platforms they could and demanded the series not be run. It ended up being cut until the Clintons were satisfied. ABC forfeited the sponsors, and then ran it a single time, and never again, and a DVD was never released. Isn't this all just a little bit weird? Can you imagine George Bush demanding that a movie company change its portrayal of him? Do you think anyone in Hollywood would listen to him if he tried it? This is naked American political censorship, and we've let it happen with nary a word of protest.

To be clear, "Path to 9/11" was NOT intended as a hit piece against the Clintons. It was also, contrary to claims made by Democrats, very well documented and vetted. It pointed out problems in both the Clinton and Bush administrations. They production team was not particularly "conservative", and in fact they were of the opinion that the political fallout would be a big embarrassment to George Bush (since Clinton was out of office and out of focus, whereas Bush was on the job and could be damaged). And ABC is not a producer of conservative propaganda.

The vital warning of "Path to 9/11" was that political considerations caused America to turn a blind eye to a real military threat. So there's a terrible irony in political considerations causing America to suppress the warning that political considerations made us vulnerable to 9/11 in the first place.
