As the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 nears, Mike Huckabee this week began promoting his companys latest animated educational video for children: "9/11 and the War on Terror." The release of the kids cartoon has sparked significant criticism, accusing Huckabee of profiting off the 2001 terror attacks.
During an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Networks "700 Club" Tuesday, the former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate noted the company he co-founded, Learn Our History, is releasing a new video "just in time" for the 10th anniversary of the attacks. "The first one is $9.95 and $11.95 after that," Huckabee explained of the ordering process via his company website.

The company has been criticized by the left in the past for offering educational videos that include a conservative spin. But this particular video sparked furor from many over the way it appears to be capitalizing on the national tragedy.
"I think thats blood money and itll come back to haunt them someday," retired New York City fire chief Jim Riches, who lost his son on 9/11, said Tuesday during an MSNBC segment on the new video.

Huckabee appeared on Thursday nights broadcast Fox News "The OReilly Factor" to defend the video. In his appearance, he dismissed his critics as ideologically motivated, and said that assailing him for making money from the videos release is "like saying Steven Spielberg is cashing in on World War II or the Holocaust because he made Saving Private Ryan and Schindlers list. Thats absurd."
