Democrats Attempt Censor of 9/11 Film

They are all for Freedom of Speech, except when it paints liberals in a bad light. This is from the Washington Post:

Top officials of the Clinton administration have launched a preemptive strike against an ABC-TV "docudrama," slated to air Sunday and Monday, that they say includes made-up scenes depicting them as undermining attempts to kill Osama bin Laden.
Former secretary of state Madeleine K. Albright called one scene involving her "false and defamatory." Former national security adviser Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger said the film "flagrantly misrepresents my personal actions." And former White House aide Bruce R. Lindsey, who now heads the William J. Clinton Foundation, said: "It is unconscionable to mislead the American public about one of the most horrendous tragedies our country has ever known."

He should have said that about the 9/11 Commission Report. James Taranto of Opinion Journal adds: wishes the Clinton people had been as aggressive in defending the nation from bin Laden as they now are in defending their own reputations.
