"Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire" is a riveting documentary that should not be missed. It sheds much needed light on shocking use of the tragedies of September 11th 2001 by Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and others in the George W. Bush administration as a tool to implement their terrifying neo-conservative agenda. Unlike the excellent but obviously biased "Fahrenheit 9/11," this film avoids cheap shots at the subjects and focuses on the facts. The information unearthed in this documentary is so damning that spit-laden combs and eerie off camera presidential preening would be a waste of valuable seconds. This film is unfortunately short at 60 minutes in length but with commentary from such titans of intellectual as thought Norman Mailer and Noam Chomsky the film uses each of these minutes to gripping avail.
