miniseries about the events leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks is "terribly wrong" and television network ABC should correct it or not air it, a group of former Clinton administration officials and Senate Democrats said in letters to the head of the network's parent company. But in a statement released Thursday afternoon in apparent response to the growing uproar, ABC said, "No one has seen the final version of the film, because the editing process is not yet complete, so criticisms of film specifics are premature and irresponsible." Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, Clinton Foundation head Bruce Lindsey and Clinton adviser Douglas Band wrote in the past week to Robert Iger, CEO of ABC's parent The Walt Disney Co., to express concern over "The Path to 9/11." They were joined Thursday by Democratic Senators Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Debbie Stabenow, Charles Schumer and Byron Dorgan, who sent a joint letter to Iger asking the broadcast be canceled. The two-part miniseries, scheduled to air on the network Sunday and Monday, is drawn from interviews and documents including the report of the Sept. 11 commission.
