Control Room: Norah--we just got statement from ABC that we have been waiting for. I'll read it right now--"The Path to 9/11″ is not a documentary of the events leading up to 9/11. It is a dramatization, drawn from a variety of sources including the 9/11 Commission Report, other published materials, and personal interviews. As such--for dramatic and narrative purposes, the movie contains fictionalized scenes---composite and representative characters and dialogue--and time compression.

No one has seen the final version of the film--because the editing process is not yet complete, so criticisms of film specifics are premature and irresponsible. The attacks of 9/11 were a pivotal moment in our history--and it is fitting that the debate about the events related to the attacks continue. However, we hope viewers will watch the entire broadcast of the finished film before forming an opinion about it"--So bottom line they've just released a statement about it. They're not going to change this movie at all...

It's difficult to know what's in the film since they only sent it to right wingers. I wonder why they refuse to let us see it? An ABC contact I had has since stopped answering the phone and refers all calls to a new number voice mail...
