Storyline

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 rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Narrator: Was it all just a dream?
Al Gore: God bless you, Florida! Thank you!
Narrator: 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?

An extreme liberals agenda
13 June 2004 | by (Harrisburg) – See all my reviews

If anyone allows this LIBERAL PROPAGANDA change their opinions on current issues then they will only be giving in to what this movie is supposed to be about.

What it really is is extremely biased, meaning that it leaves out anything positive about President Bush and focuses on only the negative plus it creates a negative spin on all of his public comments.

It is my opinion that the creator of this film would rather us do absolutely nothing after a terrorist attack. You have to wonder if Bill Clinton would have taken care of this unfinished business during his Presidency after the Embassy bombings and Saddams 98' policy on inspectors; would he still have made this movie?

I'd just like to add that its a sad day in America when someone decides to make a profit on anothers tragedy and also helps the enemy.

Before anyone lets this film influence them, they should remember the Spain train bombings and how quickly Spain made a decision to leave Iraq. If we show that we will retreat after a cowardly terrorist attack, then we will show the enemy that his strategy is working and that first attack will be followed by many MOORE!

One last comment: he might focus on prison conditions in enemy detainee camps, but he should also compare the pictures with those from the enemy when they show us how they treat American prisoners!
