Sounds Like a Job for Sandy Berger

President Clinton and officials from his administration are upset about "The Path to 9/11," a docu-drama that apparently suggests the Clinton administration choked when presented with the opportunity to capture or kill Osama bin Laden.

Folks who were silent about Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911" spin job are riled up about the way "The Path to 9/11" allegedly makes the Clinton administration look weak or deceptive in dealing with terrorism.

Maybe it's time for another stealth mission by Sandy Berger, Clinton's national security advisor. He could use on the film the same scissors he used to cut up top-secret, classified documents he stole from the National Archives. Berger pilfered the papers before testifying to the 9/11 Commission. He copped a guilty plea that resulted in a $50,000 fine but no prison time, so he's available.

I'm skeptical of straight documentaries, never mind docu-dramas. But the more the Clinton crowd hollers about "The Path to 9/11," the more credibility it gains with me.
