Actually, the deliberate lies in Fahrenheit 9/11
begin before this writer concludes they do. The first lie is in the movie's name, on the posters outside the theater. The title is, of course, a partial steal in words and concepts from Ray Bradbury's classic,

I think Vin is in violation of the federal "Excessive Consonants In Surnames" law.
Films that portray any sitting politician as a posturing, cynical buffoon are well worth making -- and watching. George Bush should not be immune just because he's ginned up a badly planned and counterproductive war.
1) Apparently, ANY sitting politician is automatically a buffoon? Or, even if not, ought to be shown as a buffoon? What kind of stupid statement is that?
2) The war was badly planned? We gained control of Afghanistan is a matter of weeks. The Left had said it couldn't be done. Then we gained control of Iraq in a matter of weeks. The Left said it would be a bloodbath. We lost a few hundred soldiers. Badly Planned? What war are we talking about?
3) Counterproductive? Afghanistan is no longer a threat. Iraq is no longer a threat. And, oh yeah, just as a bonus, Libya is no longer a threat. No terrorist attack in the US since we started fighting back, either. Counterproductive? What kind of stupid statement is that?

(Hitlary: " We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.")
This is indeed the kind of mindless faith that bred the Third Reich.
What an crashingly ignorant thing to say.

I just wish Michael Moore had more competition from real journalists -- the kind with fresh research, more cohesive critiques, and the professional scruples to get their facts straight.

(Julius Rosenberg's soviet code name was "Liberal")
The best moment in the film -- other than "My Pet Goat" -- comes when Britney Spears is allowed to serve as spokeswoman for that unfortunately huge slice of the modern American populace who rationalize, "George Bush is my president and I think we should just trust him to do the right thing." This is indeed the kind of mindless faith that bred the Third Reich.
I'm no fan of Britney Spears, but the author's comment is over the top. She's no less qualified than any of the lefties are in the entertainment world are to speak about politics. But Michael Moore (and the writer of this column) aren't mocking their ignorant comments. I wonder why.
"The only way the events of Sept. 11 could have been partially prevented was if law-abiding Americans had been allowed to carry their own firearms onto those planes."
Amen, Vin, Amen, so very true
The deaths of 3,000 citizens on Sept 11, 2001 is the sole responsibility of all of the politicans, judges, and citizens who elected and/or supported these politicians and judges in the past and now, who enacted the unconstitutional laws prohibiting the private property owners of the airlines from inviting their customers to be armed on their aircraft to assist in preventing hijackings.
If you were ever looking for the real world example, exemplifying the truism of the following quote "They that can give up essential liberty (Amendment II) to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety." Benjamin Franklin - 1759," the Sept 11, 2001 aircraft hijackings used as missiles to destroy property and kill citizens is it.
