Jim et. al.

I heard about the ABC docudrama on terrorism, and the factual errors it
contains.  As long as people know it is fictionalized, that's one thing, but
many may assume it is based on solid vetted historical research.

It is amazing how many US citizens still believe that the 9/11 attacks were
related to Saddam and his supposed connections to Al Qaeda... And disturbing
to witness how easily public opinion can be manipulated, indeed is still
being manipulated, by half truths and falsehoods from the government.

The "Weapons of Mass Distraction" function very well!
