Scenes from 9/11 "Docudrama"
The totally non-partisan and factual ABC/Disney "docudrama," The Path to 9/11 will air September 10 and 11. On ABC, I guess. Probably at 8/7 central.
President Bill Clinton has Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the attack on the U.S.S. Cole, in his sights and is about to pull the trigger. But Chief of Staff Leon Panetta reminds Clinton of the political realities any decisive action has during a hotly contested election season, so Clinton calls off the attack and gives bin Laden a Home Depot gift certificate.
That decision has disastrous consequences, in episode two of The Path to 9/11.
Update: More non-partisan factual facts presented in the "docudrama."
