9/11 Museum documentary stirs controversy on eve of opening
by Steve Kastenbaum
Thursday's opening of the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York was 13 years in the making.
Museum officials consulted hundreds of people -- survivors, relatives of the victims, rescue workers, community leaders and others -- as they determined what should be included in the exhibits occupying the halls beneath the footprints of the Twin Towers.
While that effort has been applauded by many for being a fitting, emotional telling of one of the darkest days in U.S. history, it is not without its controversies. Among them is a seven-minute film entitled "The Rise of Al Qaeda."
