that when a proven liar like Michael Moore-on simply comes up with more lies to cover his lies, people actually believe him. What a bunch of sheeple....
Check his SOURCES...his WORD means NOTHING!!!

There is one outright lie that is not a lie of ommission or simple error in MM's movie that is proven to be otherwise by multiple sourcing and 9/11 commission testimony that is a glaring example making your assertion that no one can call MM a liar wrong.
"Bin Laden family flies when airspace is closed, getting special treatment from Bush relationship"
In the June 28, 2004 issue of Newsweek Magazine, Newsweek writer Michael Isikoff makes completely false and misleading statements about facts and issues contained in Fahrenheit 9/11. Isikoff has also gone on television shows repeating the charges.
Here are some of the falsehoods he is telling, and the truth:
Saudi Flights: Isikoff writes that "The movie claims that in the days after 9/11, when airspace was shut down, the White House approved special charter flights so that prominent Saudis - including members of the bin Laden family - could leave the country. Author Craig Unger appears, claiming that bin Laden family members were never interviewed by the FBI. Not true, according to a recent report from the 9/11 panel."
Isikoff's account of the movie is flatly untrue.
What the movie says is this: "It turns out that the White House approved planes to pick up the bin Ladens and numerous other Saudis. At least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and the bin Ladens out of the U.S. after September 13th. In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country."
NARRATOR: It turns out that the White House approved planes to pick up the bin Ladens and numerous other Saudis. At least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial plans carried the Saudis and the bin Ladens out of the U.S. after September 13th. In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country.

If there is any truth in tha whole movie, then Bush should be impeached. You cant sit there and tell me the whole movie is false. If it was the Bush people would be sueing the # out of MM.

my own problem with MM started with BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE. I think lying by omission, is the same as an outright lie. I also have a problem with a Socialist whining about the United States while his child goes to Private School, and he is not exactly living like a pauper.
I don't want to start a war here, but I am not paying $8.50 for a ticket ($5.50 student prices) to see a movie that will be that biased.
