SEPTEMBER 07, 2006
Of the many powerful friends Bill Clinton has in Hollywood, none is willing to help the former president in his drive to censor an upcoming miniseries about the September 11 terrorist attacks that portrays Clinton as the negligent Commander-in-Chief who let it happen.
Clinton has demanded that the television network pull the drama – which will air commercial free on Sunday and Monday – and his army of well-connected lawyers has sent network executives a threatening, four-page letter listing his demands: Pull the drama if changes aren’t made.
The five-hour miniseries dramatizes ten years worth of events leading up to the horrific attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, clearly leaving the impression that the people in charge – Clinton and his administration – of keeping Americans safe failed systematically and shamefully. The series is based on the 9/11 Commission report which in fact accuses the government of failing to protect the nation against another attack.
A scandal-plagued perpetual liar who could always count on his friends in the mainstream media and Hollywood for support, Clinton is evidently feeling betrayed by his powerful pals. He disputes every scene that portrays him or members of his administration, especially former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, negatively as “false and defamatory.”
The fact is that there is plenty of evidence that Clinton acted negligently regarding terrorist threats during his eight tumultuous years in the White House. Last year Judicial Watch released declassified State Department documents
detailing Clinton’s rejection of an offer by Sudanese government officials to turn Osama bin Laden over to the United States.
Authored by the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research, the documents warn Clinton administration officials about bin Laden’s influence and activities following his expulsion from Sudan and list information about his travels, prolonged stay in Afghanistan, financial networks and anti-Western threats.
Apparently Clinton was too busy dealing with his domestic issues to capitalize on the incredible opportunity to capture the world’s biggest terrorist.
