ABC Gets One Right
Faced with political pressure from partisans with a self-interest in silencing the facts and open debate, ABC did the right thing (!) and let the show go on. I watched the first half last night and enjoyed it. It's not an award winner, but it was a competent--and sometimes riveting--re-telling of the story of terror in the 1990s.
The fact that President Clinton tried to get it pulled is an endorsement of the program's fundamental truth: Politics triumphed America's security until 9/11.
Good job, ABC, in facing the critics and doing the right thing.
You can't blame me for being surprised.
