The ways post-9/11 America has failed

My wife and I met in part because of the censorship of the best movie ever made about 9/11 (ABC’s 2006 docudrama “The Path to 9/11”) which — until the Clintons and the liberal media, as part of a disgraceful and politically motivated witch hunt, basically convinced Disney to kill it — was intended to be used in schools as a learning device.

I went on to direct a first-class documentary for Citizens United on the controversy (Citizens United head Dave Bossie told me it was probably the best film his organization ever produced) called “Blocking the Path.” Unfortunately, because Hillary Clinton didn’t win the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, Citizens United decided it wasn’t in its interest to give the movie much of a push. As a result, the film has largely been ignored (with some notable exceptions).

It’s not a coincidence that American children have little understanding of what happened on September 11th, 2001. In the 10 years since 9/11, we’ve failed to become a more serious nation. And we’ve failed to educate future generations about the day everyone claims changed America forever.
