Instead of watching the fiction known as Path to 9/11 last night, I opted for something a little more realistic last night – the FOX Sunday night line up. Even though I didn’t watch it, C&L contributor Mike did and he has supplied us with the big scene that tries to put all the blame for Osama on Sandy Berger.

As Mike writes:

I think ABC forgot the "docu" part of the "docu-drama." The only documentary footage is of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. If part two follows suit, we should expect to see a "dramatization" of President Bush grabbing Tenet by the shoulders and shaking him while screaming, "I WILL NOT REST UNTIL WE GET BIN LADEN!"

I did end up watching the opening credits to see what kind of disclaimers ABC put out, and it was very vague. ABC basically went ahead as scheduled and proceeded with their political smear.

One interesting point I did notice was the lack of any sponsor mention at the beginning. This was not the first time a network ran a show uninterrupted, but when they have done this in the past they made damn sure you knew who was footing the bill. Path to 9/11 – nothing. So who is footing the bill for this $40 million production and why don’t they want to be mentioned?
