"The Man Who Knew"


I wasn't going to post further about this, but given that ABC is about to smear the memory of FBI hero John O'Neill in the guise of praising him, you might want to know that the best thing, bar none, ever put together about 9/11 is this PBS Frontline documentary, "The Man Who Knew":


O'Neill was the guy way out in front on the bin Laden threat; ended up drummed out of the FBI, in weird circumstances; became chief of security at the World Trade Center...and was killed there on 9/11.

If you haven't seen it, and are looking for stuff you didn't know, but need to, about 9/11, this is the place. Not political; critical of a number of folks (including in the Clinton administration), and absolutely first rate, must-see historical television. Hell, it's even fine drama, despite being a straightforward documentary: the story itself is (obviously) plenty dramatic.

(who dares to hope PBS might rerun it, in the full 90-minute version; I didn't check to see if the "watch online" link still works, but it might)
