Clinton Red-Faced over 9/11 Cine

Former President Bill Clinton is calling for ABC to pull the "Path to 9/11" miniseries unless it deletes or alters certain scenes that don't portray him in a more flattering light. (Path to 9/11 is set to begin this Sunday, September 10, and to end Monday, the fifth year anniversary of the American tragedy of 9/11.) He is most angry that the film indicates that his Secretary of State Madeline Albright warned Pakistani intelligence (some say close to the Taliban) about the strike on Osama bin Laden, that his National Security Adviser Sandy Berger called off a strike that had Osama well targeted, and that he was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky scandal to keep the country safe. Still fighting for a legacy!
