"Blame Clinton" - Now A Made For TV Movie

The Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys of the world must be rejoicing. ABC has made their, "blame Clinton" propaganda into a mini-series which will air on Sunday and Monday night. As pointed out, there are a lot of inaccuracies in portraying the Clinton administration and their handling of terrorism. Yes, the Clinton administration stopped a terrorist plot against LAX and the Y2K plot. Yes, they tried and convicted the terrorist attacks in Oklahoma City and the first World Trade Center bombing and yes, they did tell the Bush administration that they will need to focus most of their attention on terrorism. What did that bring us? The loss of both WTC towers and a perpetual war in Afghanistan and Iraq. I can see where that's Clinton's fault. Damn you Bill Clinton!

ABC is calling the mini-series fiction, which is accurate but to the average viewer, it will not come across as a fictional account. ABC has failed to provide President Clinton and his former staff an advance copy of the series but somehow the right wingers of the world were able to preview it and tout it as the truth. Fiction? In the eyes of whom?

The same right wingers that had their panties in a bunch about, "Fahrenheit 9/11" are now smirking and wondering why we have a problem with the movie. Just like the swiftboat movie that Sinclair broadcasted prior to the 2004 election, this mini-series is nothing but a tool to try to dissuade voters. Why else would it conveniently be airing now, just months before the November election?
