Path to 9/11 graphicABC now is blasting critics of Path to 9/11, saying the movie isn’t complete. From a statement yesterday:

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.

That’s not what ABC told the National Review’s Stephen Spruiell on September 1:

I followed up on Andy’s Corner post this morning by calling ABC, and was told by a spokeswoman that the “Path to 9/11″ miniseries is “locked and ready to air,” and that she hadn’t heard anything about a pressure campaign to reopen the editing process.

It’s clear that the editing process reopened when people started complaining. What’s irresponsible is for ABC to lie about it.

Write ABC and tell them to tell the truth about 9/11.
