Hey, where's the DVD version of "The Path to 9/11"? It's not out.
Remember that controversial ABC movie which had scenes in it that depicted Clinton national security adviser Sandy Berger refusing to give a go order when U.S. soldiers had bin Laden in their gunsights? Remember how the Democrats came unglued that such scenes would appear before the American public?
Madeleine Albright condemned it. Berger himself denied any such incident took place. And other high-level Democrats browbeat ABC into editing the objectionable scenes out.
Well guess what? The L.A. Times reported today that one of the film's producer-writers is certain that: "Powerful forces are out to protect Bill Clinton's presidential legacy and shield Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton from any potential collateral damage in her bid for the White House," by burying the DVD of "The Path to 9/11."
The Times quotes one of the film's producers saying that he was told by an ABC honcho: "If Hillary weren't running for president, this wouldn't be a problem." The DVD would be out.
Believe it or not, even Oliver Stone is lamenting the fact that censorship for political purposes seems to be afoot in Hollywood. Ollie, dude, where ya been? Hollywood is blue, left and far left.
It was bad enough the scenes were even shot that showed the Clintons dithered while bin Laden was within their grasp. The left was furious over the charge.
Bill Clinton told Chris Wallace, at least I tried to kill bin Laden. But don't forget that the head of the bin Laden group at the CIA, Michael Scheuer, says no he didn't.
For both Bill and Hillary, the uncomfortable question is: Is there still a cover-up in play over moments in the Clinton administration when if someone with some guts had been in charge bin Laden would have been dead years before 9/11?
Hollywood and some powerful friends don't want you watching that film again. It might make some people think, hmmm, I wonder if we had gotten bin Laden before Bush took office, how would that have changed history?
Hmm, something to mull over.
That's My Word.
