VIA| Award-wining filmmake has claimed that Bill and Hillary Clinton used their influence at Disney and ABC to ban a 2006 film “The Path To 9/11” which examines the truth behind the events that led up to the attacks on September 2001.
The four-hour film by the Iranian American writer-director, Nowrasteh, examines former President Bill Clinton’s failure to capture and kill Osama bin Laden.
Breitbart.com reports the following:
ABC reportedly spent $40 million to produce the miniseries, but shelved it indefinitely under alleged pressure from the Clintons.
“The amazing thing was the Clintons were able to put pressure on Disney/ABC basically to bury their own movie that they spent $40 million on, The Path to 9/11, which did air once, by the way, over two nights, and was number one in the ratings with 20 million viewers,” Nowrasteh told KSFO The Morning Show’s Brian Sussman.
The filmmaker said that in many ways, the Clintons are “more effective” at censorship “than the ayatollahs in Iran,” who banned his 2008 film, The Stoning of Soraya M., for its critical examination of the Iranian government.
While Nowrasteh was able to smuggle DVD copies of Soraya M. into Iran, the filmmaker said “the Clintons made sure that no one can see The Path to 9/11.”
