The OTHER 9/11 film

If you are underwhelmed by the 9/11 take provided by Disney Co. via ABC and warmly received by the right wing pundits that dominate the airwaves, check out the film "9/11: The Press For Truth," available on DVD. Alternet has posted 3 clips from the fim. No, it is not the usual conspiracy film a la "Loose Change," which many (including me) feel veers quickly into science fiction. Based on Paul Thompson's book "The Terror Timeline: Year by Year, Day by Day, Minute by Minute: A Comprehensive Chronicle of the Road to 9/11--and America's Response" and featuring much commentary from the "Jersey Girls," an activist group of 9/11 widows, the film simply challenges the claims of the Bush Administration that 1) they were taken by surprise, and 2) they have nothing to hide.
