Michael Moore's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Is American foreign policy dominated by the idea of military supremacy? Has the military become too important in American life? Jarecki's shrewd and intelligent polemic would seem to give an affirmative answer to each of these questions.

"Nanking" tells the story of the rape of Nanking, one of the most tragic events in history. In 1937, the invading Japanese army murdered over 200,000 and raped tens of thousands of Chinese.... See full summary »
Following up on 'Bowling for Columbine', film-maker Michael Moore provides deep and though-provoking insights on the American security system, the level of paranoia, fear, uncertainty, false values and patriotism, which all combined together to set a stage for George W. Bush to launch a war on Iraq instead of focusing on getting the real culprit(s) behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This documentary also focuses on how some Saudis were safely and secretly flown out of America while planes were ostensibly grounded after the attacks. Archived film footage, candid interviews with politicians, and an overall waste of public funds for a war that was initiated on false pretension to wit: a weapon of mass distraction - to take the focus away from the real enemy and get Americans glued to their TV sets to watch innocent Iraqis and Afghans getting killed. And a war that would eventually alienate the U.S.A. and it's citizens from almost every country on Earth. Written by

Was it all just a dream?
God bless you, Florida! Thank you!
Did the last four years not really happen? Look, there's Ben Affleck. He's often in my dreams. And the Taxi Driver guy. He was there too. And little Stevie Wonder, he seemed so happy... like, like a miracle had taken place. Was it a dream? Or was it real?

This movie lacks credibility because the director lacks credibility. Previous works by Michael Moore has been full of deliberate distortions and inaccuracies. Documentation of errors and misrepresentations in his previous films is well documented on the internet.
The film was OK and interesting. However I would probably like the film better if it were produced by someone who is more honest and fair than Michael Moore. It's easier to make an interesting or entertaining "documentary" when you discard truths, distort facts, use fake setups, and manipulate editing. Moore has a history of doing unethical things to create his films.
Because it's difficult to know what is fact, fantasy, and false setups you need to be careful when viewing films by Michael Moore. You cannot accept his films as being accurate because he has an agenda and makes his documentaries to conform to his agenda even if some manipulation or false misrepresentations are needed to accomplish this.
I agree with much of what his views are in the film. However, I do not respect the messenger or the tactics he uses to convey his message. If this film where made by a director who had more integrity and honesty then I would have more respect this film. Because this is a film by Michael Moore I am left wondering what is accurate and what are intential misrepresentations that Moore has put into a film.
I find it difficult to put much faith or credence in a film by a director who himself manipulates the facts and uses editing tricks, false statement, and ambushed interviews as part of documentary technques. I would like to see a documentary made about Michael Moore and see how well he would hold up under scrutiny if someone were to take a close look at him.
If someone wanted to, they could probably easily create a documentary about Moore that would make him look worse then how he makes other people look in his films.
Moore contradicts himself. He criticizes the integrity of others, but he himself uses dishonest tactics and false allegations to create his films. By doing so he discredits himself, his views, and his work.
