Harvey Keitel speaks out on Path to 9/11 “It turned out not all facts
were correct”

Video and transcript via C&L/ Showbiz Tonight Exclusive

http://www.crooksandliars.com /

(there are some great clips on this page including Fred Phelps upset with Colbert & Stewart)






“(rough transcript-not full)

Keitel: Yea, I had questions about events–material I was given in the Path to 9/11 that I did raise questions about. Yes, I had some conflicts there.
Q: How was that met?

Keitel: With discussion..ummm with argument. When I received the script it said ABC history project –I took it to be exactly what they presented to me. History–and that facts were correct. It turned out not all the facts were correct and ABC set about trying to heal that problem..In some instances it was too late because we had begun.

Q: Do you feel that anything should be changed in this film?
Keitel: Yes I do. This is a tough issue.–(sure)
You can compile certain things as long as the truth remains the truth. You can’t put things together, compress them and then distort the reality.

Q:…in the case of September 11th though, do you feel that it is an absolute responsibility that it be factually accurate even if it is a dramatization?

Keitel: Absolutely, you cannot cross the line from a conflation of events to a distortion of the event. No. Where we have distorted something we have made a mistake-and that should be corrected. It can be corrected. It can be corrected by the people getting involved in the story that they are going to see.”
(h/t Justin)

1. They're preparing the guillotine at ABC as we speak
Whoever stonewalled on making changes is going to be working at a carwash pretty soon.

11. "Factoid"

The word "factoid" actually means a false detail presented as a fact.

4. Fantastic Witness to the TRUTH!
This $40 million dollar foray into the borders of the nether regions is going to create a backlash of unforeseen consequences (reeling back to the perpetrates). Who think might makes right.

Not the actors, who apparently, like the rest of us, have once more been duped by a RW agenda to smear President Clinton's Presidency and his legacy.

If they dare to show this mini-series..There will be hell to pay!

7. I think we'll really go ballistic after it airs
and hopefully if it airs, but as a screenwriter posted on KOS, top officials know the content of this material. There are very high up officials working in collusion probably with Rove on the content. They knew the risk and maybe they underestimated our response but rest assured we'll take them down.

Boycott Disney
Boycott ABC shows
Boycott ABC sponsors
We will not forget

WE WILL HIT THEM HARD ON THE BOTTOM LINE, They made a willful decision to air this as a gambit to hold congress, it'll cost them alot more than $40million

we'll make sure of that

8. And if I'm not mistaken...
Bill's license to practice law has been reinstated.

Generally, in a suit such as this, (willfull deliberate character assassination, malicious mischief, slander & liable and any thing else Bill comes up with) carry a huge price tag. The punitive damages could out number the original award by millions. The first step is to evaluate the worth of the companies involved in the suit, set a number, and go for it.

This could potentially be the happiest day of Bill Clinton's life. He's never had the opportunity to go against them on a level playing field. Ya-hoo!

5. Disney products are off my gift list this Christmas!
And there is not much Disney can do about it. I'm shocked that Disney would even consider broadcasting such a poor quality product. What does that say about the rest of their products?

9. Add Keitel to the list too.
He took their thirty pieces of silver and did their horrible smear job, even with his "misgivings." I for one will never spend a dime to see anything with him in it. And I'd like to let him know that too.

12. Keitel is a Democrat and can read.
I am not of the inclination to forgive this as an oversight on his part. He knew this was being marketed as a "history project."
