Bill Clinton weighs in -- and he's NOT happy

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The New York Post reports that Bill Clinton had his lawyer write a letter to the head of ABC blasting the falsehoods in their 9/11 movie:

A furious Bill Clinton is warning ABC that its mini-series "The Path to 9/11" grossly misrepresents his pursuit of Osama bin Laden - and he is demanding the network "pull the drama" if changes aren't made.

Clinton pointedly refuted several fictionalized scenes that he claims insinuate he was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about bin Laden and that a top adviser pulled the plug on CIA operatives who were just moments away from bagging the terror master, according to a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger obtained by The Post.
This scandal continues to engulf ABC and Disney -- it's a disaster for them. They are trivializing one of the worst events in American history for entertainment value.

Clinton knew Bin Laden was a major threat to America unlike his successor who ignored CIA warnings in August of 2001 that Al Qaeda was going to strike in the United States. It's hard to imagine that Bill Clinton would not have stayed on vacation after getting that kind of warning. But that's what Bush did.

UPDATE: Greg Sargent at TPM Cafe has the text of the letter from Clinton's lawyer, Bruce Lindsey.
