"The Path to 9/11"

From Ripley about the "docudrama" ABC plans to air.

It's also HIGHLY suspicious that there are only six minutes of commercials. Six hours of prime airtime with six minutes of commercials? Where is the money coming from? We all know that it's highly unlikely that parent company Disney is coughing up / writing off the expense - stockholders won't stand for that. And given the film's executive producer Cyrus Nowrasteh's hyper pro-Republican (and anti-fact) world-view (he claims that the 9/11 Report shows that there was no response at all to the October, 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen where 17 American sailors were killed) it's nearly impossible not to look at this as a national platform for political gain rather than investigating and seeking out reality.

To say that Touchstone should be embarassed for making this and ABC for airing it is an understatement that can not truly be quantified.
