COMMENTARY FROM PETER C [FELLOW NYC KUCITIZEN] ON THE DISNEY DOCUDRAMA REGARDING 9/11
“The ABC television network -- a cog in the Walt Disney empire -- unleashed a promotional blitz in the last week for a new "docudrama" called "The Path to 9/11". ABC has thrown its corporate might behind the two-night production, and bills it as a public service: a TV event, to quote the ABC tagline, ‘based on the 9/11 Commission Report’.

That's false. "The Path to 9/11" is actually a bald-faced attempt to slander and revise history right before Americans vote in a major election. The miniseries, which was put together by right-wing conservative writers, relies on the old GOP playbook of using terrorism to scare Americans. "The Path to 9/11" mocks the truth and dishonors the memory of 9/11 victims to serve a cheap, callous political agenda. It irresponsibly misrepresents the facts and completely distorts the truth. Join me in telling Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger to keep this propaganda off the air.”

BUMPER STICKER QUOTE OF THE DAY ... CORPORATE MEDIA = MASS MIND CONTROL

NEW JONATHAN TASINI TV ADS - Campaign for NY State Senate
[Duchess Note - Slick Hil continues to ignore Tasini and not be part of a debate. (Just like she's ignored NY constituent’s pleas regarding no war or occupation in the Middle East.) Registered Democrat voters in NY State are continually railroaded by Clinton. A debate between candidates is essential, so that voters can hear issues that are important to their lives. Check out the link below and listen to what a true progressive Democrat has to say. Then vote for Tasini on Sept 12th and stop Slick Hil. We need a change for the better and it won't come from her. Peace, truth & justice!]

Press Release From Senator Boxer – August 31, 2006
http://boxer.senate.gov/news/releases/record.cfm?id=262320

Boxer to Offer Sense of the Senate Resolution Calling for Rumsfeld to be Replaced - Calls on Bush to stop scaring the American people and start protecting them.

Los Angeles, CA – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today announced that when the Senate returns to session and resumes consideration of the Defense Appropriations Bill, she will offer an amendment calling on the President to immediately appoint a new Secretary of Defense. Boxer said, “This latest Rumsfeld rampage cannot stand. By comparing critics of this Administration’s policies in Iraq with those who wanted to appease fascism and Nazism in the run up to World War II, he is slandering the majority of the American people, who oppose the war in Iraq.” Boxer’s sense of the Senate resolution also points out that Secretary Rumsfeld failed to adequately plan for post-war operations in Iraq, leading to widespread violence, the rise of sectarian militias, and the rapid growth of the insurgency.

A number of retired generals who served our country with honor and distinction have called for Secretary Rumsfeld’s resignation over his mishandling of the Iraq war, including General Anthony Zinni, General Wesley Clark, Lieutenant General Greg Newbo ld, Major General John Batiste, Major General Charles Swannack Jr., Major General John Riggs, and Major General Paul Eaton, as well as numerous United States Senators.

Boxer also commented today on President Bush’s speech in Utah this afternoon, saying “This latest speech by the President was just a long repetition of old messages and rhetoric to scare the American people. The war in Iraq and the war on terror are not one and the same—it’s time to stop scaring the American people and start protecting them.”
