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.

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?

I went to see this movie to be intelectually challenged by "other" side instead I came away feeling like I had been watching a SNL episode on the subjects Mr. Moore covered, but SNL would have been much better at it. The snippets of news coverage used in the film, which I am sure were meant to inform and shock Americans, would have been great if used on the 6 o'clock CBS, ABC or NBC news, instead they were shown to only a segment of the American public through this movie. The liberal media at those networks would have been more than happy to show them as they made Pres. Bush look quite bad, why did they not? I expected a much more intellectual and smarter movie out of Mr. Moore, instead it was just a badly made docudrama/movie. I also think it is a shame that it won the Best at the Cannes Film Festival, as a film festival is about the art of film making and should not be grounds for individual political statements. There were many movies in 2003 that deserved to win that title, and if Mr. Tarantino was not on the jury, I am sure F911 would not have had a chance.
