ABC Reaction to the Democrat Reaction to ABC’s 9/11 Mini-series

American political cultural is far too saturated with tit-for-tats, but I cannot help taking delight in the reaction of Clinton administration folks to ABC’s 9/11 mini-series.  The New York Times quotes former Secretary of State Madeline Albright as saying that those who have seen it told her that the movie “depicts scenes that never happened, events that never took place, decisions that were never made and conversations that never occurred.”  Hilariously, ABC responds that the movie is a “dramatization, not a documentary,” hilarious because of course this is what Michael Moore said in response to the critics of the supremely false and defamatory Fahrenheit 9/11.  I urge Democrats to recall how delighted they were that Moore’s movie came out in an election year, and to remember in particular the snide smiles pasted all over the faces of Terry McAuliffe & Co as they emerged from the gala screening of Moore’s movie .  And I urge all those who intend to watch the ABC mini-series to go back to the classic Christopher Hitchens review of Fahrenheit 9/11.
