Directed by Michael Moore, whose aura of controversy only grew after his Oscar acceptance speech at the 2003 Academy Awards, Fahrenheit 9/11, like Moore's Bowling For Columbine and Roger & Me, promises to expose the corporate wrongdoings and big-money scandals perpetrated by America's financial elite. This movie, however, looks beyond the inner echelons of General Motors and Lockheed Martin in hopes of outing the evildoers in the White House, particularly in regards to the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush. In addition to criticizing the administration's handling of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, Moore digs deep into the surprising relationship with the Bin Laden family held by both Bush administrations, and questions whether or not potential Saudi involvement with the attacks has been ignored. As Fahrenheit 9/11's Cannes Film Festival debut approached, marking only the second time in 48 years that a documentary has been included among the festival's main competition, Miramax's parent company Disney announced it would not be distributing the film due to its partisan nature, and, according to Moore, out of trepidation that the Florida-based Goliath's multi-million-dollar tax breaks might be negatively affected by Florida Governor Jeb Bush, whose review within Fahrenheit 9/11 is less than favorable. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie GuideThere is so many lies and half truths most have already been explored on blogs and TV and radio. So not sure I need to add anything.

Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
I do like the "something called Fox News" announced Bush as the winner. Maybe as it turned out they were right and everyone else was wrong no matter how many times the votes were recounted. Maybe we should give them credit for going against the established "consensus". It was not like it would have actually had any effect on the actual counts to give the win toward any candidate and maybe they all should have held their mouth when the end results were less than a thousand votes difference for most of the recount process... How does someone like Bush get away with NOTHING you moronic fat pig (Micheal Moore).
Amazing that no Senators supported all the wing-nut Representatives in the House. I believe there was 5 black Senators at the time and some of the representatives mentioned about disenfranchisement of black voters. I guess those Senators or the many Democratic Senators at the time also did not buy this.
In hindsight, I love when people have a great conspiracy theory and even when nothing is stopping the agreements since all the characters have been in place. The pipeline through Afghanistan is another great conspiracy. While people easily forget the details or even what was suppose to happen, it allowed people to form a biased opinion that is not based on reality. More Paranoid Logic...
Well it does not look like the evil American Corporations are pushing the plan forward. Turkmenistan, partners to revive Afghan gas project
I like the subtly use of contradicting the speaker with captions.
Congressman Porter Goss (R-FL) Chair, House Intelligence Committee, Not really true,Yes, Michael Moore you should be considered a terrorist. Since you push WMD, that is LIES, INNUENDOS, DISTORTIONS and everything FALSE.
But here's his private office line...
Sorry, what a fucking lier. Now he talks about how many State Troopers along the Oregon Coast. What a moron, complain to the state and they have been having a hell of a lot of problems with their state Troopers for a while. And who the hell cuts the budgets in OREGON. Yes that is right, OREGON decides the trooper level and where located at.
He sure is obsessed with Bush and et al being groomed for the cameras. I am sure that the fascist Michael Moore will have this clip in his next movie: John Edwards Feeling Pretty
Well 2 hours was not enough for our fascist pig Michael Moore, so he did provide a lot of extra propaganda for all the wing nuts out their. But the Arab stand up comedians were funny. I can always laugh at a good joke...
Yes for lies and just poor techniques of the art form film, I give this a one (1) rating...
