10 Reasons Bush wants to ban Moore film

10 REASONS BUSH WANTS TO BAN MOORE FILM

May 20 2004

..like it could make him lose the next election

By Ryan Parry


A NEW film is sending shockwaves through the United States in general and the White House in particular - and it hasn't even been released yet.

Fahrenheit 9/11, which this week got the longest standing ovation in Cannes Film Festival history, tells what its director Michael Moore sees as the truth behind the war in Iraq and on terror.

It is said to be so powerful it could tip November's US presidential election against George W Bush. As Moore says: "We were able to get film crews embedded with American troops without them knowing it was Michael Moore. They are totally f***ed."

Disney has refused to distribute the film in the States, saying its content could upset the presidential elections. Moore says that's precisely why the public should see it.

These are the 10 killer questions the film poses.

1, AFTER the 9/11 attacks, why was the only plane to fly out of the US carrying 24 members of Osama bin Laden's family?

IN the wake of the attacks, the US became a no-fly zone. Moore asks: "Why did Bush allow a private Saudi jet to fly around the US in the days after September 11 to pick up members of the bin Laden family and fly them out of the country without a proper FBI investigation? Might it have been possible that at least one of the 24 bin Ladens would have known something?"

2, ARE the media covering up abuse of Iraqi prisoners and the disillusionment of American troops?

MOORE'S film shows soldiers hooding and mistreating Iraqi detainees, and even shows troops taking it in turns to sexually abuse a drunk elderly man.

He says: "This occurred outside the Abu Ghraib prison walls. The media is there every single day. Why haven't they seen this? I don't think we've heard American soldiers in the field talk as they do in this film about their disillusionment and their despair; about their questioning of what was going on."

3, IS Bush deliberately creating a culture of fear to get poor American youth to fight his war?

MOORE accuses the Bush administration of deliberately creating a climate of fear, particularly by the instigation of the Department of Homeland Security, to increase numbers signing up for the armed forces. He calls this "the immoral act of sending kids to war on the basis of a lie".

4, HOW deep does the connection between the Bush family and bin Laden family actually run?

MOORE exposes business links between the bin Ladens and the Bushes over the last 25 years. Bush Snr became a highly paid consultant for the Carlyle Group, one of the nation's largest defence contractors. One of the investors in Carlyle - to the tune of at least $2million (?1.2m) - was the bin Laden family.

The campaigner says: "The bin Laden family have extensive dealings with large companies in the US. They have donated $2m to Bush's alma mater, Harvard. They own property in Texas, Florida and Massachusetts. In short, they have their hands deep in our pants."

5, JUST how sinister was the White House's doctoring of Bush's military record?

MOORE suggests that, far from being simply an exercise in proving that Bush attended to his Texas Air National Guard duties, the White House version also sought to hide evidence that Bush and his associates had close ties with various Saudi oil companies. He also suggests that a former military pal of Bush's, James R Bath, once sold a plane to the bin Laden family.

6, DID Bush miss an opportunity to nail bin Laden during secret talks with the Taliban?

MOORE claims that while Bush was governor of Texas he built a relationship with the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan. They met in Texas to discuss a project to build a natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan through Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and into Pakistan.

Representatives of the Bush administration met the Taliban in the summer of 2001. Moore says they ignored the bin Laden issue and were pre-occupied with oil. He asks: "Was Bush discussing their offer to hand over bin Laden? Was he threatening them with force? Was he discussing a new pipeline?"

7, WHY does the Bush family have a "special relationship" with the Saudi royal family?

"MORE than 1.5 million barrels of oil needed in the US daily from the Saudis could vanish on a royal whim, so we begin to see how not only Bush, but all of us, are dependent on the House of Saud," says Moore. "This can't be good for national security."

Moore also refers to Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to the US, who is nicknamed Bandar Bush because of his close links with the president. Despite increasing evidence linking the September 11 atrocity to Saudi militants, Bush still met Prince Bandar for dinner two days later.

8, WAS Bush spending too much time on holiday to concentrate on terrorism?

BUSH was on holiday for 42 per cent of the eight months before September 11, letting his guard down, according to Moore. At a 9/11 commission hearing, CIA director George Tenet admitted he had known since August 2001 that Zacarias Moussaoui, the only man charged in connection with 9/11, had been taking lessons on how to fly a 747. Tenet claimed he didn't tell Bush because the president, "was on vacation".

9, DID Bush panic when he was told about the attack on the twin towers?

ON the morning of September 11, President Bush was posing for cameras at a children's literacy event in Florida.

Moore has previously unseen footage showing the rabbit-in-car-headlights expression on the president's face when he is told about the second plane hitting the twin towers.

A stopwatch appears in the corner of the screen, as the minutes tick by and the president keeps reading My Pet Goat, not knowing what to do without his advisers to tell him.

Moore says: "Was Bush thinking he should have taken reports the CIA had given him the month before more seriously? That he had been told al-Qaeda was planning attacks in the US and planes would possibly be used. Or was he scared witless?"

10, DID Bush manipulate the major US media companies to fix his 2000 election win?

BUSH'S cousin John Ellis, a Fox News executive, was instrumental in "calling it" for Bush/Cheney on election night and cowed the other networks into joining in. This confusion helped set the scene for the debacle that ended in his election despite Al Gore winning the popular majority.

At the start of Fahrenheit 9/11, the major players are seen smirking and preening themselves. "Here they are," Moore narrates, "the whole corrupt gang who fixed the 2000 election."




I gotta see this movie!

Our dealings with the Saudis are corrupting our government, but we can't finish them because of our addiction to foreign oil.

I want to see this film, now, but I don't know if it'll have a significant impact on those who consider Moore "that fat liar".

No, those people have made up their minds. They'll see the movie and not believe that the Bush's have such strong Saudi connections.

I don't know. I'm not into downloading movies. I wouldn't think that movie would be available online yet. It hasn't even made it to the theaters.

This isn't true. I personally know of one other non-military plane that was flying that day (with permission) which had nothing to do with bin Laden's family

First I want to say that I just last weekend I finally saw "Bowling for Columbine."  I have no problem admitting that it seems that many "conservatives" improperly interpreted that movie as pro gun control.  In fact, I think he raised an extremely important question.  Had he focused on that main topic and remained truthful, I would have actually been impressed. However, he didn't disappoint my perception of him.  And unlike those who claim Bush lied, it's very easy to prove that he did.  The cartoon about the history of America for example said that we went over and kidnapped the African slaves.

But let's examine this article with it's  reasons .

1, AFTER the 9/11 attacks, why was the only plane to fly out of the US carrying 24 members of Osama bin Laden's family?

They were interviewed by the FBI, but this was still a bad idea.

2, ARE the media covering up abuse of Iraqi prisoners and the disillusionment of American troops?

Obviously not true.  It's been widely reported that this is  possibly systemic and widespread.  However, though abuse appears to have taken place, what most of those in disagreement with me claim is abuse, isn't.

3, IS Bush deliberately creating a culture of fear to get poor American youth to fight his war? 

Hmm, in his last film it was the media that was creating this culture of fear. 

Poor American youth?  Poor to Michael Moore?  Pat Tillman certainly wasn't poor.  I don't believe that a large majority of those enlisting come from what would be considered poor families.  Though I don't have proof, does he?

And how does the Dept. of Homeland Security deliberately create this culture?

4, HOW deep does the connection between the Bush family and bin Laden family actually run?

First, hasn't Osama renounced his family and they him?  They have a close relationship with the Saudi family whom I believe Osama hates nearly as much as us. 

Secondly, the bin Laden family is obviously very wealthy.  Is it uncommon for wealthy families to know each other and have business dealings together?  Is it illegal?

5, JUST how sinister was the White House's doctoring of Bush's military record?

MOORE suggests that, far from being simply an exercise in proving that Bush attended to his Texas Air National Guard duties, the White House version also sought to hide evidence that Bush and his associates had close ties with various Saudi oil companies.

Since when do military records contain a person's resume?  It was released to prove that Bush had fulfilled his required obligations. 

Why is it so suspicious that a person whose family was already in the oil business had dealings with oil companies? 

He also suggests that a former military pal of Bush's, James R Bath, once sold a plane to the bin Laden family.

OH DEAR GOD!!! Do you mean to tell me that an airplane broker sold a plane?  THE OUTRAGE!!!  :mad2:

6, DID Bush miss an opportunity to nail bin Laden during secret talks with the Taliban?   

What representitives?  Though discussing plans for a pipeline is certainly permissable no?  He really doesn't know what they were talking about, but accuses wrongdoing anyway to further his portrayal of Bush.

7, WHY does the Bush family have a "special relationship" with the Saudi royal family?

Because they can.  And as he said, we are dependent on them like it or not.  If the Saudi's are indeed trying to "stab us in the back", why would we alienate them especially since they are so crucial.  The "keep you enemies closer" doctrine.

8, WAS Bush spending too much time on holiday to concentrate on terrorism?

Though there really isn't much of anything that he can do in Washington that he can't in Texas and I certainly don't believe it hindered his ability concentrate on terrorism, he should have probably spent more time in Washington.

9, DID Bush panic when he was told about the attack on the twin towers?

A stopwatch appears in the corner of the screen, as the minutes tick by and the president keeps reading My Pet Goat, not knowing what to do without his advisers to tell him.

What a load of shit!  Didn't he have a kid in his lap?  He should have thrown the kid down along with the book screamed "I gotta go" as he sprinted for the exit. 

In a crisis situation a leader should stay calm and collected.  People were already in a huge panic and having the president freak out wouldn't have helped. 

10, DID Bush manipulate the major US media companies to fix his 2000 election win? 

Yeah, the media is the final say on the outcome of elections. 

This election argument is so demonstratably wrong that I pity those who still believe it.

Perhaps you could show us a linik showing that Bush has actually said he wants to ban the flick?

Or is that mere speculation by the author, who I might add..... seems to have drank a little too much before writing the article?



Really Learyfan. Are you so desperate to bash Bush? Granted, the guy is a schmuck, but the hyperbole in that article stinks worse than the floor in a NYC adult shop.

while I wholeheartedly agree with much of your critique, no, I don't
believe there was a kid on his lap nor do I think that matters. The
president of the united states did not act, he entered the school
knowing the first plane had hit and continued to sit there after the
second one struck. That's the most grievous failure of US leadership
that I can possibly think of....all because what? some kids might get
upset?

9/11 made a mockery of United States civil air defense.

I didn't realize it was standard practise for presidents to rush to the scene of plane crashes.

True.... to a point. Had any of those planes been shot down the screams from the leftist media would still be echoing.

Of course it's speculation as it didn't happen. I thought that went without saying. I'd take it as a bet though, if it were possible.

Of course, perhaps had one of the scumbags on the first plane gotten on the radio and shouted Allah Akbar right after the highjacking, things would have been a bit more clear.

well the time it took them to scramble jets is the big failure, not the fact that the planes weren't shot down.

actually, wasn't there a theory that the last plane was shot down? I clearly remember news reporters claiming that wreckage was being found many miles from the "crash site" That was right after the event, only in the days afterward did the story change to "brave americans overtook the terrorists" The wreckage that was being found all over the state was never mentioned again in the media. I clearly remember this, and i know reporters can be wrong, but there were multiple stations reporting the same thing.

anyone else remember that?

True enough. I agreed with afoaf on that one.

Yup, but it was never proven to be true. And there were quite a few crackpot theories bout that day. One need only look at the first post in this thread to see that.

I you underestimate that. There are loads of people who know squat about politics who will go to see this. Many did for Bowling for Columbine, and they still don't pay attention to the news, articles, they're opinions are rather basic and uninformed.

Films do a good job in further capturing the youth too...

As for those already politically active/consious? No, people already have their stance, this will just strengthen it regardless of what side they're on.

Interesting. In your entire little snippet of a post, I don't see anything relating to Bush even mentioning banning the films. Did that actually happen or do you feel that lying and making things up helps your cause more than the truth?

5, JUST how sinister was the White House's doctoring of Bush's military record?

MOORE suggests that, far from being simply an exercise in proving that Bush attended to his Texas Air National Guard duties, the White House version also sought to hide evidence that Bush and his associates had close ties with various Saudi oil companies. He also suggests that a former military pal of Bush's, James R Bath, once sold a plane to the bin Laden family.




I'm not sure that the military records contain information about ties with oil companies, and I'm sure that they don't contain information about who's friend sold who planes. Just my .02$.

7, WHY does the Bush family have a "special relationship" with the Saudi royal family?
"MORE than 1.5 million barrels of oil needed in the US daily from the Saudis could vanish on a royal whim, so we begin to see how not only Bush, but all of us, are dependent on the House of Saud," says Moore. "This can't be good for national security."




So then, we all have this "special relationship", right?
Quote:


8, WAS Bush spending too much time on holiday to concentrate on terrorism?
BUSH was on holiday for 42 per cent of the eight months before September 11, letting his guard down, according to Moore. At a 9/11 commission hearing, CIA director George Tenet admitted he had known since August 2001 that Zacarias Moussaoui, the only man charged in connection with 9/11, had been taking lessons on how to fly a 747. Tenet claimed he didn't tell Bush because the president, "was on vacation".




What about Clintons reaction to the previous attacks?

10, DID Bush manipulate the major US media companies to fix his 2000 election win?
BUSH'S cousin John Ellis, a Fox News executive, was instrumental in "calling it" for Bush/Cheney on election night and cowed the other networks into joining in. This confusion helped set the scene for the debacle that ended in his election despite Al Gore winning the popular majority.




Moore also claims that John Ellis built a time machine, went back in time, and re-wrote the laws of elections with some fanciful new invention called an "electoral college" or some such Bush Doublespeak.

I wish that Geedub would pull a Clinton and have problem people end up commiting suicide in a park with no gunpowder residue on their hands and such.

HagbardCeline - Way to be contrary. Do you support Bush? Hmmm...

I'd be willing to bet that most of the facts that you presented are from major media sources. Not to discredit them or anything, but these are the very sources which this movie seeks to disprove. The sources which blind the general public from reality.

"First, hasn't Osama renounced his family and they him? They have a close relationship with the Saudi family whom I believe Osama hates nearly as much as us.

Secondly, the bin Laden family is obviously very wealthy. Is it uncommon for wealthy families to know each other and have business dealings together? Is it illegal?"

What are your sources for this info? Perhaps it isn't illegal, but is it not a bit suspicious?

Hehe, Moore was awarded the Cannes 2004 Golden Palm, the highest award of the festival.

He found a distributor in most countries, even in Albania. Just curious if he gets to find one in the States...?!

First of all... "Captain Obseity"(sic)? Very mature. That's exactly how you should start all counterpoints if you want people to take your seriously. Nice first move.

The point here is: Moore is anathema to the Bush administration, and since Bush is the Commander in Chief of the US Military, would therefore be frowned upon to have full access to what is going on behind what the "news" media reports. By getting access to military bases and Iraqi prisons without tipping his hat, he and his crew were likely able to get more of an insider's look at what was actually going on. Why would he do this? To "fuck" the troops? Likely not. Maybe to tell another side of the store that wasn't likely to see light of day without being exposed by alternative media sources? I'm going with that.

I don't think thats why Disney said that they didnt' release the film. Is their a source for this, or is it as imaginary as the attempt by Bush to "ban" this film?



Disney (and more specifically, Mirimax, a Disney studio) have not given an official reason for pulling the film. But let's take a few things on faith. I know that will be tough for those who can't actually think on their own and need a freaking link to prove and theories or allegations, but let's give it a shot.

1) Moore's films make money. They cost remarkably little to make/produce, and have made money in the past. Bowling for Columbine made a killing at the box office (relative to the cost of the film to produce), and there is good reason to believe that Farenheit 9/11 will be even more successful. So if a profitable movie is pulled from distribution, is it too much of a stretch to believe that the distribution company has alterior motives for pulling it?

2) I won't really go into the mass media monopolies in detail, but let's just point out that Disney's parent company, AOL/Time Warner has it's hands in numerous media ventures. If anyone believes that they have not benefitted by having the current administration in control of the FCC then you really need to read more.

3) Disney is afraid - and this should be painfully obvious - of losing their unbelievable tax breaks, specifically those in Florida. And in case you've forgotten, Jeb Bush is still the governor of Florida. Walt Disney world does not own the land on which it's parks sit; it leases the land from the state of Florida for.. are you ready? 10 cents per square foot. I pay about that in taxes alone for my house every year, let alone what my land actually cost. They have the ultimate sweetheart deal. If you had an apartment or a house that you paid $40 a month for, and never had to pay taxes on the land to boot, would you be in a hurry to help produce a movie that proved that the family of your landlord was a lying, profiteering scumbag? I wouldn't either.

All you have to do here is put 2 and 2 together to realize that something maybe ain't right. Do we have a link to exactly what that is? Noo... but at this point, do we really have to?

Incorrect. They were not interviewed by the FBI and several FBI agents have gone on the record stating that they specifically requested that certain members of the Bin Laden family not be allowed to leave the country and they be detained for questioning. These agents were quite specifically denied by the White House and given no rationale for this.

Oh - and bonus points for "Captain Obesity" reference #2

3, IS Bush deliberately creating a culture of fear to get poor American youth to fight his war?




I'd say that Al Queada is doing a bit more for the "culture of fear" thing than Bush is.




So, as you see it, a culture where to dissent is "unpatriotic", where to disagree with and call out your president for unacceptable behaviour is "giving in to the aims of the terrorists", and where you're "either with us or against us" - this is not a culture of fear? In my own country, I can be afraid to put a bumper sticker on my car for fear of retalliation (Yes - I've already had my car hit and vandalized for my political views, to the tune of $3700), or knowing that I can't wear my "Kerry '04" tee shirt or my "Anybody But Bush" tee shirt in certain areas of my town without the distinct possibility of coming to blows over it - and you're saying that there is not a culture of fear in our country? Well, as you mentioned that you read a lot, try this one on for size:

"Culture of Fear" by Barry Glassner

4, HOW deep does the connection between the Bush family and bin Laden family actually run?




Irrelevant. The binLaden family has disowned Osama, and due to their religious beliefs, one patriarch of a family could have hundreds of children.




Again, entirely incorrect. Well, except the irrelevance of having hundreds of children - that part is actually irrelevant.

While some of the family have severed most of their ties with Osama, the connections to the family, family and Saudi sponsored terrorism, Saudi ties to Al Quaida, and the Bush family ties to the house of Saud run so much more deeply than you can imagine.

I can't get into the detail necessary to educate you on this subject, but here's another book for you:

"House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World's Two Most Powerful Dynasties" by Craig Unger

And the connections run rampant - here's a recent tidbit not to have made the "Liberally Biased" US news:

On Friday, May 14th, a bank in Washington DC - Riggs Bank - was fined $25 million by the US Treasury because it was found that there was sufficient evidence to say that this bank laundered money (undisclosed amount, but a $25 million fine suggests that it was more than a few thousand dollars, yah?) that found it's way into middle-eastern terrorist organizations, and that some of that money filtered through the Saudi royal family before doing so. Why is this story interesting? Anyone want to guess the name of the CEO of Riggs Bank? His name is Johnathan Walker Bush. The uncle of your esteemed president.

So... irrelevant? Hardly.

Bush got his undergraduate degree at Yale and his MBA from Harvard.

And the problem with your second "theory" is that the Japanese "royal family" didn't have a pile of business ventures with the family of FDR. Of course, if you can find evidence that they did, I'm sure it'd make a terribly interesting book.

"Captain Obesity" x3. I'm pretty sure you win something for that.

About the Clinton thing; Moore has always been critical of Clinton. He liked him better than he likes the Bush cabal, but was hardly an apologist. And as neither of us have actually seen this movie, I don't think either of us know that he isn't indeed bringing up Clinton on this.

That said, I believe that he's bringing up a question: "DID he...", not "he did..."

It has come out this past week that the Bush administration had at least one opportunity to assassinate al-Sadr and three shots at killing Zirqawi (sp? - the man claiming responsibility for the beheading of Nick Berg) since taking office, and deliberately chose not to do so. So how do we justify this?

What about this Clintons' reaction??? If you actually read half as much as you claim to, then you might have read Richard Clarke's book "Against all Enemies", in which Clarke, Clinton AND W's senior advisor on terrorism outlines the many many steps that the Clinton administration took following the terrorist attacks against US interests under the Clinton administration, which, though not perfect, were successful in thwarting such attacks as the bombing of Logan International Airport in Boston (which never occurred) and the Millenium Bomb Attack at LAX (which also never occurred). Clarke then goes on to outline the many many steps that the Bush administration refused to take along the same lines, putting counter-terrorism on the back burner. Clarke went so far to say that Bush did so no because he didn't care about terrorism, but because Clinton cared about it so much and Bush was quite simply allergic to anything Clinton.

As you seem to be.

And your question here was...?

Quote:

Quote:


9, DID Bush panic when he was told about the attack on the twin towers?

Not really. There's a group of people out there who believe that Bush et. al. Let It Happen On Purpose (LIHOP). The LIHOP theory has it's merits, but even I can't let myself be so cynical as to believe that they truly Let It Happen. But it makes for interesting reading.

Anyway, there are some very detailed time-lines associated with the LIHOP theory, combined with video footage that show Bush's reaction after being told of the second plane hitting the WTC (oh - and he was outside the school when he was told that the first plane hit, whereupon he remarked "Boy, that's one bad pilot." He chose to go into the school anyway.) It's interesting to note that he continued reading to the children for 19 minutes after the second plane hit.

Not that you were actually interested in discussing this one.. but I thought I'd share anyway.

So now you don't believe that there were any shenannigans during the election of 2000? You are either hard headed, or purposefully ignorant. And I'm not sure it's not both.

Well, since I've already given you at least 3 books to read, I don't imagine you'll go pick up Greg Palast's "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy"... but here - at least read a short interview with him regarding the 2000 election:

You said it GernBlanston... its almost as if we have some of George's administration among our ranks...

So does anyone know about this film's release? Maybe if Moore can't find a distributor then he'll just release it over the net... wouldn't have nearly the same impact, of course...

?Fahrenheit 9/11? made waves in the weeks leading up to Cannes after the Walt Disney Co. refused to let subsidiary Miramax release the film in the United States because of its political content. Miramax bosses Harvey and Bob Weinstein are negotiating to buy back the film and find another distributor, with hopes of landing it in theaters by Fourth of July weekend.




From:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5039229/

So, according to the AP, Disney HAS said that the film will not be released due to it's political content.

I just find comdies which distort the truth and include some pieces of utter rubbish and then get toted as a documentary as funny.

"Bowling for Columbine" was not a documentary in the classical sense and should not have won an oscar. It was a good movie just not a documentary.

Sorry I haven't responded to all of your posts. Let me try to field some of these questions.

This isn't true. I personally know of one other non-military plane that was flying that day (with permission) which had nothing to do with bin Laden's family

Perhaps you could show us a linik showing that Bush has actually said he wants to ban the flick?

Or is that mere speculation by the author, who I might add..... seems to have drank a little too much before writing the article?




No one is saying that Bush is publicly trying to stop this movie, but if you were Bush would you want the movie to come out? It's common sense to assume that Bush wants to stop the movie.

Clarke Testimony Discredits Moore's 'Fahrenheit 911'

It's a good thing for Bush-bashing conspiracy filmmaker Michael Moore that the folks who run the Cannes Film Festival weren't paying much attention to the 9/11 Commission hearings earlier this year.

Otherwise they might have figured out that the central premise of Moore's film "Fahrenheit 911" - that President Bush let Osama bin Laden's relatives escape the U.S. and fly off to Saudi Arabia after the 9/11 attacks - has already been debunked.

What's more, the debunker in question, former White House terrorism czar Richard Clarke, has impeccable Bush-bashing credentials, authoring an entire book claiming that the Bush White House didn't do enough to prevent the 9/11 attacks.

But there's one allegation Clarke doesn't include in his anti-Bush bill of particulars - Moore's charge that he let the bin Ladens get away. Why not?

Because Clarke himself has already admitted to making that decision himself.

"I was making - or coordinating a lot of decisions on 9/11 in the days immediately after," he told the 9/11 Commission in late March, saying that the proposal to authorize the bin Laden fly-out was brought directly to him.

Clarke's testimony turned vague about what happened after that, but his comments to Vanity Fair magazine last August made it crystal clear who approved the bin Ladens' escape.

"My role was to say it can't happen until the FBI approves it," he told writer Craig Unger. "And so the FBI was asked - we had a live connection to the FBI - and we asked the FBI to make sure that they were satisfied that everybody getting on that plane was someone that it was O.K. to leave."

Then Clarke confessed: "And [the FBI] came back and said, yes it was fine with them. So we said fine, let it happen."

Maybe it's not too late for the judges at Cannes to rescind Mr. Moore's "Golden Palm" award for trying to palm off his movie fantasy as a documentary.


Moore sucks.

What? So you?re saying that the Bin Laden?s were allowed to leave the country?? How is that debunking that theory?

I don?t get it. I must be stupid.

Your post:
IN the wake of the attacks, the US became a no-fly zone. Moore asks: "Why did Bush allow a private Saudi jet to fly around the US in the days after September 11 to pick up members of the bin Laden family and fly them out of the country without a proper FBI investigation? Might it have been possible that at least one of the 24 bin Ladens would have known something?"

My post:
But there's one allegation Clarke doesn't include in his anti-Bush bill of particulars - Moore's charge that he let the bin Ladens get away. Why not?

Bush didn't do it. Clarke did.

Stupid? Nah. Just too anxious to find fault. So anxious that you don't take the time to see if what you claim is actually what was.

I am curious.

No-one has been able to show Bush lied. Yet you claim he's a liar.

Many have shown Moore lied, yet you trumpet him as if he was some type of hero.

Why the double standard?

And please.... no "Bush is the president" crap. A liar is a liar no matter who he is.

Ok, so someone in the Bush administration allowed the Bin Laden's the fly home. Some blame needs to fall on Bush for that. Even if he didn't make that decision, Bush needs to be blamed for allowing so many others to make important decisions for him.

I still haven't seen definitive proof that Moore has lied. People post links showing that he lied and then someone else posts links showing why it wasn't a lie. It's hard to know who to believe. I like Michael Moore because of his good intentions and rebellious spirit, but if he has lied then he needs to be called on it.
