I remember last year there was a mini-series about Hitler on TV, and everyone was worried that it was too sympathetic. Even today, sixty years later, people don't want a personable Hitler. So why in the hell do we have a mini-series on 9/11 through the terrorists' eyes? I don't want to know what was going on in their lives to make them do these things, I don't want to watch them prepare to board the planes, I don't want to see the crash of Flight 93 from anyone but Tood Beamer's point of view, and I certainly don't want to give the 9/11 hijackers any more publicity and glory for the heinous thing that they did. I think that's disgusting.

That Hitler mini-series took 60 years. Maybe in 2060, when it's history, they can make a mini-series about that garbage, but it's not history when some of the collaborators are still alive and kickin' and being released by Germans.

This sure isn't the 9/11 movie Lileks envisioned.

1 Just think: It takes a lot of people to make a two-hour drama and to buy the rights for the US (or anywhere else in the world). That's a lot of people who aren't getting nauseous over the thought of propagating the message that "the hijackers were all quite ordinary." Yup, jus' plain ol' folks, killin' thousands. Is this how desensitized people have become?

2 I'm sure it will be on Arabic TV very shortly. They can run it along with the Egyptian production of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

3 Tanker, It saddens me to say that the prospects for international sales of the film are probably very ... good (gag). Even people in the Great Satan want to see it.
