Sandy Berger is Going to be Rich

AmericaBlog says the scene with Sandy Berger is way more defamatory than any story about it has described and that it is so integral to the first half of the film, it can't be cut.
We are 1 hour 54 minutes into the film, it is the culmination of the entire first two hours of the film. CIA agents on the ground with Commander Massoud have found bin Laden. They have him pin-pointed in a house. They are looking at the house with binoculars. They are on the phone with the CIA, that has patched in Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger. Berger, like a bumbling ass, sits there, looking every which way, refusing to give them clearance to grab bin Laden who is in their literal grasp. The woman at the CIA has to lecture Berger about how intelligence works, like he's some kind of moron. Berger literally looks like a deer caught in the headlights. He's clueless, an idiot, a moron, unfit to serve in any public office - hell, I wouldn't hire the guy to mow my lawn. After a very long pause, the agents are begging Berger to take some responsibility, stop being such a wuss, stop trying to cover his chicken-shit ass, you see Berger reach forward and the phone line goes dead. Clearly Berger has ended the call. Osama gets away. And Sandy Berger is personally responsible for killing 3,000 Americans and bringing down the World Trade Center twin towers.
...
The entire culmination of the first half of the show is one big fat lie. This isn't just a small scene with a small error. It's THE scene and it NEVER HAPPENED AT ALL.

And proving that Disney/ABC lied when they claimed it's unfair to criticize the film because "it's still being worked on," the original Path to 9/11 that everyone has been criticizing already aired in New Zealand, unchanged in every detail. That means, if they truly are "still working on it," that it was previously finished and that it's incredibly difficult, if not impossible to change, just as John in DC says.

AmericaBlog has also laid out an eleven point plan to punish Disney/ABC for abusing its broadcasting responsibilities in a blatant attempt to influence an election in favor of Republicans and defaming Berger, Albright and Clinton.
