September 11th

There's a whole lot of kerfuffle goin' on about "The Path to 9/11." Here's my addition:

Mr. Iger,

The American Broadcasting Company and the Disney Corporation have a distinguished history of providing memorable and effective news and entertainment to America and the world. The goodwill associated with these accomplishments is invaluable.

"The Path to 9/11" threatens that goodwill. The use of any tragic event for partisan purposes is inappropriate. The anniversary of the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon must not be, in any way, be used to further a political agenda of any type -- liberal or conservative.

Please consider the cost to the corporate goodwill and the public trust that the broadcast of "The Path to 9/11" will cause ABC/Disney.

I know people hurt in the Pentagon incident, and I will never forget the black smoke and the streams of people walking home past our apartment in DC.

Revisionist history and infortainment as agitprop have no place in a modern democratic republic. This is exactly what "The Path to 9/11" (and "Fahrenheit 9/11") are.
