Mary Jo White Plot The miniseries presents a dramatization of the sequence of events leading to the September 11, 2001 attacks by Al Qaeda on the United States, starting from the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and up to the minutes after the collapse of the World Trade Center in 2001, based on the 9/11 Commission reports. The point of view of the movie is from two primary protagonists: John P. O'Neill, and a composite Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent, "Kirk". O'Neill was the real-life Special Agent in charge of Al Qaeda investigations at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He died in the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11 shortly after retiring from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and taking the position of Director of Security for the World Trade Center. The composite CIA agent "Kirk" is shown dealing with various American allies, especially Northern Alliance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud, in Afghanistan. In addition, "Patricia", a CIA headquarters analyst, represents the views of the rank and file at CIA headquarters. The miniseries features dramatizations of various incidents summarized in the 9/11 Commission Report, and represented in high level discussions held within both the Clinton and Bush administrations. The final hour of the movie dramatizes the events of 9/11, including a re-creation of the second plane entering the World Trade Center, Tom Burnett's calls to his wife, and John Miller's reporting near the scene of the attacks. The film concludes with information about the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, as well as the performance evaluation the Commission gave the government when it reconvened in 2005.

Production history According to ABC, the movie is based on the 9/11 Commission Report, books The Cell by John Miller and The Relentless Pursuit by Samuel Katz[disambiguation needed],[3] as well as personal interviews, news accounts, and other sources.[5] The first indication that ABC was running a miniseries appeared in a brief article in the New York Post.[6] In it, the producers identified shooting locations and revealed that Harvey Keitel would play John O'Neill. At the time, ABC had a working name of Untitled Commission Report and the producers used the working title Untitled History Project, with the project beginning filming in July 2005 and scheduled to end post production by January 2006. Preview screenings were made in May for foreign broadcasters.[7] The film was first publicly announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in July. According to Advertising Age, the miniseries was a personal project of ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson, who began to look for a producer shortly after reading the 9/11 Commission Report. The White House asked the major networks for airtime to present a Presidential Address to the nation. The interruption delayed the broadcast of the second half of Path to 9/11 by approximately 20 minutes in the Eastern and Central Time Zones. Otherwise, the movie aired without any interruption. Filming was conducted in Morocco, New York City, Toronto, Hamilton, Ontario[8] and Washington, D. C. The production was one of the few allowed to film at the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia.[9] Controversy and criticisms ABC advertised the involvement of the 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean as both a consultant and as a co-executive producer.[10][clarification needed] Commission member Richard Ben-Veniste said that the miniseries misrepresented facts presented in the 9/11 Commission report.[11] To date, ABC's $40 million miniseries, which drew a combined audience of 25 million, has not been released on DVD. Writer and producer Cyrus Nowrasteh has said that a stalled release is not due to lack of interest but rather strong political pressure. He told the Los Angeles Times that "[P]owerful forces are out to protect Bill Clinton's presidential legacy and shield Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) from any potential collateral damage in her bid for the White House". Furthermore, Nowrasteh goes on to explain that he was told by a top executive at ABC Studios that "if Hillary weren't running for president, this wouldn't be a problem." According to the LA Times, an ABC spokeswoman reached September 4, 2007 would say only that the company "has no release date at this time," and she declined to comment further.[12] In an interview with KFI's John Ziegler, Nowrasteh candidly discusses the issue.[13] Controversy: support for The Path to 9/11 9/11 Commission Kean's comment Additionally, a book by Thomas Kean, a member of the 9/11 Commission who worked as an adviser to the film, is also included as published material.[14] Kean supports the film saying, "People in both parties didn't particularly like the commission report, and I think people in both parties aren't going to love this one".[14] Kean also remarked on ABC's Good Morning America: "It's something the American people should see because you understand how these people wanted to do us harm, developed this plot, and how the machinations of the American government under two administrations not only failed to stop them, but even failed to slow them down."[15] According to the New York Times of the 13th September, Kean said that he had vetted much of the screenplay for accuracy and that he was confident it reflected the spirit of what happened. "I’m very happy with it," he said. ABC maintains film is non-partisan ABC continued to maintain that their movie was non-partisan and responded to critics by explaining that, "No one has seen the final version of the film, because the editing process is not yet complete, so criticisms of film specifics are premature and irresponsible."[16] Film storyline corroboration In a November 2004 Weekly Standard article, Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIA's bin Laden unit, tends to lend support to the overall theme in The Path to 9/11 that Berger, Tenet and Clarke were more concerned about collateral damage than killing or capturing bin Laden[17]: “ Scheuer thinks Clarke is a risk-averse poseur who didn't do enough to fight bin Laden prior to September 11, 2001. At his breakfast with reporters, Scheuer said that on 10 separate occasions his unit, codename "Alec," provided key policymakers with information that could've led to the killing or capture of Osama bin Laden. "In each of those 10 instances, the senior policymaker in charge, whether it was Sandy Berger, Richard Clarke, or George Tenet," resisted taking action, afraid it would result in collateral damage or a backlash on the Arab street. According to Scheuer, Clarke’s story has changed in the time since. ” Responses from the right Some conservative commentators have responded to the controversy by suggesting that what they call "the deep anger of the Clinton political machine" or the "narcissistic whining of the Clinton coterie" amounts to "self-serving complaints," to "an irrelevant diversion," to a "repellent" "hissy fit," and to quibbling about details in what talk radio host Hugh Hewitt described as "a very accurate docudrama" whose main message, according to Brent Bozell, is that "America's intelligence apparatus was woefully unprepared for 9-11, and remains dangerously inadequate today."[18] Bozell further stated that both "Clinton and Bush officials come under fire, and if it seems more anti-Clinton, that's only because they were in office a lot longer than Team Bush before 9-11. Indeed, the film drives home the point that from our enemies' perspective, it's irrelevant who is in the White House. They simply want to kill Americans and destroy America. The film doesn't play favorites, and the Bush administration takes its lumps as well." [19] Hewitt added that the "program is not primarily about the Clinton stewardship—or lack thereof—of the national security. It is not even secondarily about that. Rather the mini-series is the first attempt — very successful — to convey to American television viewers what we are up against: The fanaticism, the maniacal evil, the energy and the genius for mayhem of the enemy."[18] ABC airs movie with minor changes On September 10, 2006, Part 1 aired over ABC in the United States as scheduled and without commercial interruption. According to the journal Editor and Publisher Magazine, less than one minute was "cropped out" in comparison to the review copy in its possession. All of the controversial scenes were included in some manner, with only brief shots trimmed and occasional word substitutions made[citation needed]. In addition, a written and spoken disclaimer was aired at the beginning and end of the movie (and just past the midpoint of the first evening's broadcast) reminding viewers that the movie was a fictionalization.[20] The film "is not a documentary," ABC/Disney said. On September 11, 2006, Part 2 aired as scheduled, without commercials, though it was interrupted halfway in by a speech from President Bush in the Eastern and Central time zones. Part 2 then continued in its entirety. While the first night had lower ratings, the second night received the highest ratings of the night.[21] Awards 2007 Emmy Award: Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Miniseries or a Movie 2007 Emmy Award nominations: Outstanding Casting for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special; Outstanding Cinematography for a Miniseries or Movie; Outstanding Main Title Design; Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (Original Dramatic Score); Outstanding Sound Editing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special; Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special; 2007 American Cinema Editors Eddie Award: Best Edited Miniseries or Motion Picture for Commercial Television Ratings United States During the first night of the original broadcast in the United States, The Path to 9/11 was beat by NFL football and tied a rerun of the film 9/11 shown on CBS. However, The Path to 9/11 was the top rated show on its second night, finishing with a 8.3 rating/12 share. Overall, it had a combined audience of 25 million.[22] Ratings Shown/Network Rating Share NFL (NBC) 15.1 23 Path to 9/11 (ABC) 8.2 12 9/11 (CBS) 8.2 12 Documentary revisits controversy In August, 2008, talk show host and documentary filmmaker John Ziegler and producer David Bossie of Citizens United premiered a documentary co-produced, written and directed by Ziegler entitled Blocking The Path to 9/11,[23][24][25] which revisits the political controversy behind the ABC miniseries The Path to 9/11.[26] Through interviews with the Path to 9/11 filmmakers and others, news clips regarding the controversy, and footage from the miniseries itself, the documentary asserts not only that accusations of the filmmakers' covert political agenda were unfounded, but that they were generated by Clinton-era politicians concerned that the miniseries tarnished their political legacy, and were reported uncritically by bloggers and a biased news media. The documentary also claims that Disney/ABC ultimately shelved plans to release a DVD of the miniseries as a result of pressure from the political left, specifically the Clintons themselves. As noted in the documentary, Disney/ABC denies this and claims the decision not to release a DVD was purely a business decision.[citation needed] See also 9/11 Commission Report I Missed Flight 93 Inside 9/11 Special Bulletin The Day After The Reagans References ^ Who was blocking 'The Path to 9/11'? - Jeffrey Ressner - POLITICO.com ^ "The Path to 9/11" at imdb.com ^ a b ABC.com ^ War Room: Political News, Politics News - Salon ^ Credits to Path to 9/11 ^ Kaplan, Don and David K.
