That's weird. First time I went in it showed the article, now it's asking for a userid password. Here is the article from Google's cache :

Actor Mel Gibson has become the latest in a line of celebrities to question the war in Iraq.

The usually-conservative movie star-director said he had been having "doubts" about President George W Bush.

"It's all to do with these weapons (of mass destruction) that we can't seem to find, and why did we go over there?" he asked.

Usually a Bush supporter, Gibson said a lot of what the president had done during his term in office had been "good".

But he said in the WABC radio interview that he had been "having my doubts of late".

Gibson is riding a new wave of fame at the moment with the massive success of his film, The Passion of the Christ.

Despite some controversy and claims of anti-Semitism the story of Christ's crucifixion has taken $US250 million at the box office.

The film opens in the UK on March 26.

Other Hollywood stars have spoken out against the war including Dustin Hoffman, Sean Penn, Martin Scorsese, Danny Glover and Martin Sheen.

Meanwhile, Gibson said in the interview that he planned another religious film.

He wants to tell the story of a Jewish rebellion nearly 200 years before the birth of Christ, which led to the festival of Chanukah.

By making that film Gibson might answer his critics who have branded The Passion as anti-Semitic.
