An email from David Horowitz below about the refusal to release on DVD a remarkable TV presentation
"The Path to 9/11": $40 Million to Produce ... Five hours over two nights drawing a primetime audience of 25 million viewers - Seven Emmy nominations. So why won't Disney put this historic spectacular on sale as we mark the sixth anniversary of September 11, 2001? Two words: The Clintons.
There were over 20 different DVDs slated for nationwide release yesterday, on September 11 - yet one of the absolute best, The Path to 9/11, the unvarnished, critically praised docudrama dealing with the years leading up to that horrific day wasn't among them. Why? Well one high level Disney executive secretly told 9/11's award winning writer and producer, Cyrus Nowrasteh, Path has been locked away because it would embarrass Hillary Clinton as she campaigns for president.
The simple truth is that the Clintons and their cronies have put unprecedented pressure on Disney to keep this remarkable miniseries from ever being aired again! It's an extortive power play, to be sure. It's also censorship at its worst. ...
Of course, there is far more to this than just the Clintons and their Hollywood friends pressuring Disney not to release The Path on DVD. As a result of the detailed screenplay Cyrus wrote and his work to produce this exacting account, an account that underscores how the Clinton Administration repeatedly turned a blind eye to the repeated threats of Islamic radicals... Cyrus has received death threats. When these people want to silence their critics they mean business.
With The Path to 9/11, Cyrus put together a fearless, straight-forward docudrama that tens of millions of Americans watched, that critics praised, and that drew seven nominations for television's highest award, the Emmy.
Now, six years since the barbarism of 9/11, the callous threats against Cyrus' life coupled with the shameless pandering of Disney studios to appease the Clintons seem woeful tributes to those who died and to those who courageously seek keep ours the land of the free and home of the brave.
