The Clinton Truth Squad is out in force, and it’s not just ABC they’re keeping an eye on. This morning’s New York Times included the following correction, which appeared in record time, no doubt due to the Truth Squad’s efforts:
The TV Watch column in Weekend yesterday, about the ABC mini-series “The Path to 9/11,” referred incorrectly to a conclusion of the commission that investigated the terror attacks. The commission said the accusation that President Clinton had ordered air strikes against Osama bin Laden in August 1998 to distract attention from the Monica Lewinsky scandal was one of several factors that “likely had a cumulative effect on future decisions about the use of force” against Mr. bin Laden. It did not conclude that the scandal distracted the Clinton administration from the terrorist threat.
As I wrote yesterday, I wouldn’t care about this–nor, I suppose, would the Democrats–but for the fact that the Democrats are running on a platform of returning to the terrorism policies of the Clinton administration, which, whether through distraction, miscalculation, or sheer indifference, were inept.
