ABC-Sponsored teaching materials falsely suggest Iraq had WMD, link War in Iraq to 9/11

The ABC propaganda in the two night mini-series The Path to 9/11, written by radical conservatives, had spread to school materials. However, following spreading protests this material looks like it is being yanked. The similar high school discussion guide looks even worse in terms of it being propaganda, no word if that has been pulled.

ABC has reassured conservatives after the firestorm it is igniting that the docudrama will not be changed in any substantial way - ‘The Message of the Clinton Admin Failures Remains Fully Intact.' ABC had not screened or discussed the series with Clinton, or his officials, despite the script placing primary blame for 9/11 on them. Nor were any liberal groups involved in the screenings. It has had numerous contacts and screenings for conservatives.
The film does paint a rather unflattering portrait of the incoming Bush administration -- showing how they demoted White House counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke, and failed to act against al-Qaida even after their responsibility for the November 2000 attack on the USS Cole became clear.

"The difference is, the stuff they show the Bush administration doing actually happened," said Jay Carson, a spokesman for former President Clinton.
ABC tells FOX News the story is based solely on the 9/11 Commission report, two lies - 1.)it is more based on two books, and 2.) scenes in the docudrama contradict the 9/11 report.

9/11 Commision member blasts Fake Docudrama for inaccuracies. GOP Senate candidate was script consultant and approved inaccuracies.

ABC's docudrama, 'The Path to 9/11,' is a mix of fact, fantasy and deliberate distortion adding up to blatant pro-Bush propaganda.

Conservative Washington Post Media critic Howard Kurtz reports on two major errors and a false overall storyline which former Clinton officials are attacking. He also reveals this production cost $40 million.

NYT has the story.
