LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- ABC is under fire to re-cut its miniseries based on the behind the scenes government running's pre-Sept. 11, after heated responses from Clinton supporters.

Officials of the former Clinton administration have said that a number of scenes in "The Path to 9/11" are fabricated, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Republican Thomas H. Kean, chairman of the Sept. 11 commission and a co-executive producer of the film, said that he has asked for some of the changes addressed by former aides to U.S. President Bill Clinton and that ABC is considering his request.

"These are people of integrity," Kean told the Post of the filmmakers. "I know there are some scenes where words are put in characters' mouths. But the whole thing is true to the spirit of 9/11."

The six-hour special, which is to Sunday and Monday, depicts former Clinton officials Madeleine K. Albright, Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger and Richard Clarke as undermining efforts to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, the Post said.

The complaints come despite ABC's contention that no one has yet seen the finished version of the film.
