Taking the "docu" out of ABC's 9/11 "docudrama"

TV viewers beware:

This coming Sunday and Monday, September 10 and 11, ABC will air a two-part, six-hour "docudrama" about 9/11. I put "docudrama" in quotes because the "docu" part suggests that it's a factual documentary. But experts in the field say that it's much more a politically biased work of fiction.

Those experts include Richard Clarke, former counter-terrorism adviser to Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.

In other words, the people who were actually there are telling us that this ABC flick is a pack of partisan lies.

And here is perhaps the most ironic aspect of this thing: Richard Clarke now serves as a counterterrism analyst for ABC. But apparently they didn't feel they should run this thing past him while it was still on the editing table. Gotta wonder why.
