A new ABC docudrama "The Path to 9/11" depicts the repeated failures of the Clinton administration when it came to terrorism, from the passed opportunity to capture Bin Laden to the lack of response to the attack on the USS Cole. However, our friends the Krazy Kos Kidz know better:
Of course! If he disagrees with any of the KKKz premises, he must have a pro-Republican point of view. He makes it clear -- can't you see it?
The producer of the show, Cyrus Nowrasteh, makes it clear he has a pro-Republican point of view in this interview:
FP: When you refer to the failed effort to stop Bin Laden in the 1990s, this was obviously the time of Bill Clinton. How much do you think his administration made us vulnerable to 9/11?
Nowrasteh: The 9/11 report details the Clinton's administration's response -- or lack of response -- to Al Qaeda and how this emboldened Bin Laden to keep attacking American interests. The worst example is the response to the October, 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen where 17 American sailors were killed. There simply was no response. Nothing."
We know this is simply b*******. Yet ABC is airing this propaganda and will undoubtedly promote the hell out of it in the next two weeks.
Isn't it great working against the stacked deck of the corporate media? Ahhhhhh .... Democracy!
No worries, though. Al Gore will succor us from our trials and tribulations:
Our elected president, Al Gore, just said todayThats the ticket, KKKz! When the rules of the game don't suit you, just throw 'em out and declare your own winner!
Indeed. The threat of the will of the people being overturned through judicial activism looms large. We had a narrow miss in the category of peaceful transition of power in Florida six years ago. The Democrats tried again in Ohio; how long will it be before they get the right set of judges in the right state to allow them to fix an election?
EDINBURGH, Scotland - Former Vice President Al Gore said Sunday ever-tighter political and economic control of the media is a major threat to democracy. Democracy is under attack," Gore told an audience at the Edinburgh International Television Festival. "Democracy as a system for self-governance is facing more serious challenges now than it has faced for a long time.
