Clinton is ticked.

Clinton Demands ABC Fix 9/11 Movie or Pull It

"An angry Bill Clinton is demanding that ABC "correct all errors” in its upcoming miniseries "The Path to 9/11” — or pull it from the air.

In a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger, Clinton refuted several of the miniseries’ assertions, including that he was too preoccupied with the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about Osama bin Laden.

"The content of this drama is factually and incontrovertibly inaccurate and ABC has the duty to fully correct all errors or pull the drama entirely,” reads the letter, written by Bruce Lindsey, head of the Clinton Foundation, and Douglas Bond, a top lawyer in Clinton’s office."

I just saw Clinton in a speech bashing Bush for the first time on sending more troops into Iraq than Afghanistan. He hasn't done this before I think because Bush was so generous in not criticizing Clinton and his administration and for appointing him to head the tsunami relief with former Pres Bush, a high profile and feel good appointment. But now that this 9-11 mini series puts Clinton in a bad light I feel sure we will see more of this from Clinton. This film isn't Bush's doing, of course, but throwing mud on Pres Bush is the only thing Clinton can do at this point and he knows he will get the backing of the leftists.

I can't imagine that ABC would give in to this. I don't remember Bush ever asking that Fahrenheit 9-11 be pulled and that CLEARLY had distortions throughout. I would hope that the lefties would howl as much about censorship to Clinton as they would have if Bush had called for that movie to be changed or pulled.

But I'm not holding my breath.
