Tom Kean, former co-chair of the 9/11 Commission, is under fire for his association with ABC’s Path to 9/11. Kean dug in and defended the docudrama, which ABC marketed as “based on the 9/11 Commission Report,” as “reasonably accurate.” Now, Kean has acknowledged that the movie has errors and ABC is reportedly considering edits.
Yesterday, the New York Daily News asked Kean if he’d contacted Bill Clinton:
Asked if he had apologized to Clinton for inaccuracies in the movie, Kean quipped, “No, he was out campaigning against my son yesterday, so I didn’t reach out to him at all!”
Kean’s son is a GOP Senate candidate in New Jersey.
As 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said yesterday, 9/11 is “is a story that’s of great importance to every single American.” It’s not a political game.
