Blumenthal: the Path to "The Path to 9//11"

Max Blumenthal in the Huffington Post claims that the ABC mini-series, "The Path to 9/11" that has ignited a firestorm of outrage because of its disortions, inventions, and lies is the work product of a "well-honed propaganda operation consisting of a network of little-known right-wingers working from within Hollywood to counter its supposedly liberal bias." He fills in some of the background and connections of the film's director, David Cunningham, and screenwriter Cyrus Nowrasteh.

Mickeleh's Take: How come we hear this two days before the airing? Over the past week, the response of the progressive blogosphere, the Democratic Senate leadership, Olbermann, and many others has been remarkable and impressive. But how did this sneak up on us? Blumenthal notes that the project was first pitched as "untitled history project," but, he notes, that it was reported in the New York Post in July of last year.

Here's a movie whose theme is the missed opportunities to discover and stop the plot to attack on 9/11.

And the movie itself managed to sneak up on us. Where was our equivalent of the August 6 2001 Presidential Daily Briefing--the one titled, "Cunningham Determined to Strike in Hollywood"?
