Farenheit 9/11 Revisited

According to this article, Michael Moore’s Farenheit 9/11 leaves much to be desired. The whole Carlyle group thing didn’t bother me too much, but the plane trips thing did, and it is interesting to see that the claims that these flights were illigetimate were fabricated and that the person who approved the flights was none other than Richard Clarke, now an outspoken critic of Bush.

It doesn’t change, of course, the Patriot Act or the Iraq War vs. The Afghanistani War, but it does make you wonder about the rest of the claims in the movie. If Moore had simply left all verifiably false stuff out, then the entire film would gain credibility. But instead, he leaves it in and calls all the content into question. Of course, without the claims addressed in teh above article, it would have been a pretty short film about mostly Iraq, and we’ve all had enough of that.
