Orson: The skinny on the 911 Commission is that 24 (out of 26) Bin Laden relatives and Arab friends were vetted before being allowed to leave the US. And, contrary to Moore, outspoken critic and counter-terrorism expert Richard Clarke took full responsibility for the decision to let these people leave the US after 9/11 (several weeks ago). In other words, Moore lies in blaming Bush! Tom: the issue isn't whether bin Laden's relatives were vetted or not, but rather the fact that they were allowed to travel by air when the rest of the country was grounded! Orson: Moore paints Bush, alternately (and yes: incredibly) as an evil doing conspirator and a mindless duped dunce. So answer me this, all you Moore-worshipping posters and readers: if this thesis is true, how can leftist New Laborite British PM Tony Blair follow Bush into war? If YOU (like Moore) can see through Bush's dimwitted lies - how come Tony Blair embraces and promotes them? Tom: Blair doesn't have much choice, does he? Britain is wedded to the US whether they like it or not, and judging from what I've heard, many in Britain do not like it in the least. Just as Thatcher remarked of Reagan "Poor man, there's not much between the ears.", what Blair thinks of Bush is anyone's guess, but I have a feeling it's much worse than Thatcher's comment. Aren't there any conservative documentary makers who can counter Moore? Where's the creative urge, the need to tell the truth? C'mon times a wasting.
