Harvey Keitel speaks on 9/11 film

Harvey Keitel, who plays the FBI's cocky Al Qaeda expert John O'Neill in The Path to 9/11, isn't happy about being duped.

And:

Couldn'ta said it better Harvey. You are now forgiven for the screaming scene in Bad Lieutenant.

Of course, Keitel also says that we "shouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater" -- meaning: watch the film, please...
