The Path To 9/11 ...

... is the path to lunacy, if one keeps up with the links at Memeorandum. They're already planning Phase II of their war on Disney and ABC after the showing of the miniseries, having failed to dislodge the network with their "vociferous and righteous public outcry". The bloggers now refer to the show as "terror porn" and decry the fact that the producers have distributed advabce copies to conservatives -- although they fail to note that the conservatives that got them are media personalities who often get advance copies for pre-release review. It's called "publicity", and usually broadcasters like it.

I don't know whether the film is terrible or terrific, and unfortunately I won't get a chance to find out. I'll be at a benefit dinner this evening honoring a fallen police officer (see below), and I'll be at Macalester College Monday night engaging in a much more rational debate over the Iraq war -- and hopefully local CQ readers will join me there. In the meantime, I'll just sit at ringside while the Left melts down over a TV movie and continues to obliquely threaten to shut down a broadcaster over a political disagreement. That totalitarian streak will probably provide the clearest example of political honesty over the next two days, and certainly will be the most entertaining aspect of the week.

» The Road to 9/11 Part 1 from Blog From the Underground
The Road to 9/11 isn’t a documentary its far more riveting and truthful than your average documentary. The film as I saw it was not strictly accurate considering that I doubt that many of the conversations took place but the substance is true. In... [Read More]
