ABC is defending the multiple inaccuracies in Path to 9/11 by stressing parts are fictionalized and not entirely based on the 9/11 Commission Report. But that’s not the position of director David Cunningham.
According to Cunningham, critics are simply taking scenes out of context or relying on a competing set of experts. Here’s what Cunningham told The Crimson White, a University of Alabama newspaper:
“A lot of these critics haven’t seen the whole thing or, in some cases, any of it,” Cunningham said.
“We have these CNN pundits who haven’t seen it who are taking scenes out of context as examples [of factual inaccuracies in the film].”
Cunningham also pointed out that the critics, many of whom are Democrats, are just telling their side of the story.
“We have out [sic] CIA consultants and Clinton has his. It’s kind of a ‘he said, she said’ situation right now,” Cunningham said.
Cunningham added that “the talk of ABC possibly pulling the show ‘is just a rumor right now.'”
