Today's Cartoon: Democrats Urge ABC to Withdraw Miniseries "Path to 9/11"

The Democrats are upset because it appears that the new ABC miniseries "Path to 9/11" implies that the Clinton Administration was too concerned about the Monica Lewinsky Scandal to pay any attention to the growing threat of terrorism, which eventually took the form of the September 11th attacks.

Personally, I don't really see what the Democrats have to whine about here. After all, wasn't it the Republicans who were making the bigger deal out of the Lewinsky affair because they wanted to get President Clinton impeached?

I think Bill Clinton would have much rather moved on to more important issues (like "terrorism"), if for no other reason than to avoid the humiliation of literally getting caught with his pants down. But unfortunately for him (and as it later turns out, the rest of the United States) the Republican held House of Representatives decided that the issue qualified as an "impeachable offenseā€¯ and quickly decided to act on it. Eventually the case against President Clinton made it all the way to the Senate, where as a result he was not convicted of any charges nor faced any penalties. The whole affair turned out to be nothing more than a huge waste of time and resources, which in hindsight should have gone towards tracking terrorist activities overseas.

Now I'm not going to say that if President Clinton wasn't impeached the 9/11 attacks wouldn't have happen, but perhaps if he had have "gotten off" sooner then maybe the world wouldn't have ended up in the sticky mess that it finds itself in today ;)
