(And note that "obligated" doesn't mean "required.") It wasn't even a drama, it was a "docudrama" (which most people will confuse with "documentary"), which it claimed was based on the 9/11 commission report, when in fact what it portrayed *contradicted* the 9/11 commission report in many instances. ABC had the nerve to follow its "disclaimer" (which actually gave the impression of *validating* the film's inaccuracies) with a quote from the 9/11 commission report in which the commission stated it had not sought to assign blame for 9/11, as if that applied to the film as well. (To be fair, in the second half, it did present some of Bush's failures, but the very strong overall impression was that Clinton was primarily responsible.)
