Cusack sat down with Raw Story's Larisa Alexandrovna to discuss the film, his political views and his take on the state of mainstream media, which he feels has failed in its role as the public watchdog.
"I think in a way you can almost respect the criminals more than the enablers in some sick way -- I mean, I think what the Bush administration has done is criminal, should be treated as a crime, but the idea that people who call themselves journalists let these lies go on unchecked and endorsed them time and time again is [unpardonable]," Cusack said.
Asked what Cusack would say to Vice President Dick Cheney if he had the opportunity, Cusack wisecracks, "You have the right to remain silent."
Cusack is far more serious on the topic of torture and violations of the Geneva Conventions by Bush administration officials.
"You know, Nuremberg [the post World War II Nuremberg trials of the leaders and enablers of Nazi Germany] said that an illegal invasion of a sovereign country in a war of aggression is a supreme war crime."
Cusack wonders why no one in the press has made this a bigger issue and why Democrats in Congress have not made it a priority.
