Path to Propaganda

I honestly didn't think much about ABC's upcoming Black Tuesday "docudrama" because I very rarely watch the idiot box. For anyone who pays attention though, there's been a storm of controversy concerning depiction of events, so much so that the network is considering yanking the broadcast, or at least tinkering with certain scenes. The reasons for the advance condemnation are legion - ABC gave advance copies only to wingnuts for review, and now it's come out that the project was begun and was executed expressly to rewrite history:

"In fact, "The Path to 9/11" is produced and promoted by a well-honed propaganda operation consisting of a network of little-known right-wingers working from within Hollywood to counter its supposedly liberal bias. This is the network within the ABC network. Its godfather is far right activist David Horowitz, who has worked for more than a decade to establish a right-wing presence in Hollywood and to discredit mainstream film and TV production. On this project, he is working with a secretive evangelical religious right group founded by The Path to 9/11's director David Cunningham that proclaims its goal to "transform Hollywood" in line with its messianic vision."

That the five year remembrance (I can't get myself to consider it an anniversary) was going to be exploited somehow was a given. I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise to me that water carriers for the fascists would lie about events leading up to that day given that they've lied about everything else since then. Supposedly Clinton is excoriated for failure to capture Osama when he had the chance, giving Al Qaeda free rein to pull off 9/11.

To debate that is taking the manipulators' bait hook, line and sinker. 9/11 was premeditated shock theater and murder planned at the highest levels of our government. OBL and Muslims in general are patsies being blamed for what Bush and Clinton helped facilitate. It serves our overlords' purposes greatly to bicker with each other over the fine points of a grand deception. Just when the movement towards learning the truth of what happened back then is gaining critical momentum they're going to try to find ways to sidetrack it into dead ends.

Let the boob tubers feed their misconceptions. I think I'll pass.
