The three-hour event starts tonight at 7PM CST. I really don't knbow what to make of the controversial scenes - RedState.org has them here
. These scenes revolve around three contested allegations:
- That Sandy Berger scrubbed a chance for special forces ground troops to nab Bin Laden.
- That prior to the embassy bombing in Kenya, the US government had suspicions about a certain individual but did not act on them; that individual participated in the bombing.
- That Madeline Albright notified the Pakistani government in advance of the missile attack on al-Qaeda's Afghan training camp, and that this tipped off Bin Laden through one of his Pakistani government connections.
Berger and Albright denied that that's the way it was. I want to see evidence backing up their claims, and I want to hear from Path To 9/11's producers their side of the story - whether those scenes were creative license or on Clintonista-unfriendly documentation. Cough it up.
We do know these things for sure. Clinton did not take the al-Qaeda threat seriously. His administration did not make a serious attempt at nabbing Osama, and made several key blunders, the biggest of which was inaction. The 1998 embassy bonbings should have triggered the biggest clandestine manhunt in world history, but it didn't.
