The ABC mini series The Path To 9/11, scheduled to air Sunday and Monday, is a dramatization based in part on the 9/11 Commission Report. But the movie is already drawing angry criticism from former members of the Clinton administration whom it portrays.

The disgruntled officials say that some of the scenes depicting the lead-up to the attacks are fabricated and inaccurate. The show's writer and producer have responded that their goal is not to make a documentary, and that they are finalizing the movie.
