Democrats Try to Block Broadcast of "The Path to 9/11"
One of the Democrats' favorite talking points is that the Bush Administration and the GOP Majority in Congress has turned the war on terrorism into a war on civil liberties. According to the Democrats, the Patriot Act and the actions of the administration have eroded the Bill of Rights.
The true nature of the Democratic Party's commitment to free expression is revealed here, an official Democratic Party web site. This site collects signatures on a petition to Walt Disney Corporation President Robert Iger, demanding that ABC not broadcast "The Path to 9/11", because it "is a conservative attempt to rewrite the history of September 11 to blame Democrats, just in time for the election."
Apparently, two months will not be enough time, in the eyes of the Democratic Party, to repair the damage it will suffer from this program. Mind you, by all reports, the program is critical of both the Clinton Administration and the George W. Bush Administration, but it is a deep affront to the Democrats for anything other than attacks on Republicans to appear on network TV. "What is the world coming to?" they ask.
To counter the Democratic petition, Little Green Footballs recommends that people contact ABC directly with messages of support, at ABC.com--Contact ABC.
