The Path to 911 is a docu-drama which focuses on the events leading up to the September 11th, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon. Using numerous sources, including The 911 report and personal interviews,[1] writer and producer Cyrus Nowrasteh and director David Cunningham created an extremely detailed account of the Al-Qaeda's founding and the Clinton Administration's failure to act on evidence of an imminent attack.

Because of the controversy surrounding the events recreated in the film, and an upcoming election, ABC removed and edited some film which depicted the Clinton Administration failures, including a scene where Clinton's national security adviser Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger declines to give the order to kill Bin Laden.[2] Most of the criticism came from liberal filmmakers, such as Oliver Stone, and Clinton associates.[3]

The film was not released on DVD after it aired on television because of Hillary Clinton's involvement in the upcoming presidential election. An ABC associate stated "if Hillary wasn't running for president, this wouldn't be problem," when referring to the film's failure to be released.[4]

The five hour film was aired on September 11 and 12, 2006 and received praise for its presentation, acting, and correct interpretation of events.[5][6] [7]
