The ramblings of a disturbed mind
Isn’t it interesting to see how some people cannot help but allow their distaste for certain people to color their view of some situations. I can understand why you might find it difficult to like some people.
I can understand why you might not want to be involved in things that other people are involved in. But I just have a hard time grasping how you can let your personal bias prevent you from making a logical assessment of political/historical situations.
More to the point, I find it funny to hear people claim to be knowledgeable and educated about specific events when through the course of discussion it becomes clear that they are just not. If you are that ignorant, why would you continue to broadcast it.

One more thing, I don’t care a whit about his daughters. I didn’t worry about Billy Carter, or Roger Clinton or Chelsea. They are meaningless and have no bearing on intellectual discussion about policy.

F911 was produced by a corpulent conman who has spliced clips together and has fabricated reality to fit his own truth.
There are numerous problems with the movie. The approval for the Saudis to leave the US was given by Richard Clarke, but Moore never shows that.
He suggests that Bush created a problem by continuing to read books to the children for 7 minutes. It doesn’t take into account any of the other aspects. The Secret Service is responsible for the safety of POTUS and did not want him to move.
He was not inaccessible and he certainly did not have all of the information then that we have now. Tell me what he could have done.
Had he authorized shooting down a passenger plane he would be excoriated for murder. Better to have taken a deep breath and a short amount of time to make a decision with a clear head.
The lack of discovery of WMDs in Iraq doesn’t explain what happened to them. Clinton acknowledges that they were there in ’98 and then the inspectors were thrown out. It is irresponsible and wrong not to find out what happened to them.
I can continue to list the problems with Moore’s distortion of the truth, it is really easy.
And as I mentioned before those other publications you listed have their own bias and are frequently wrong just as the mainstream media. It is incumbent upon us to go looking for that information.
If you give Moore Carte-Blanche and accept all of what he says you are being foolish. His work is being supported by Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations, that should make your skin crawl.

re: Bush comment
the truth and hours of footage prevent me from a feeling of “safety” with the C student, Mr. Bush. I challenge you to read alternative INVESTIGATIVE reporting supplied by groups who are not companmies that the Bush family partly owns. I challenge you to see F/911. You’ve been hoodwinked and bamboozeld by this administration, Time Warner corp., Clear Channell, etc…
it’s not easy for me to think that- from the begining I have been aware of the theft in florida…and the chain of command, in the past meant that eventually the president admits he is responsible…like a parent…speaking of parent notice how little we hear about his alcoholic daughters…if it was Chelsea….go see F/911, then log onto Moores site if you like to be active and help soldiers.

The so called mainstream media is not as difficult to read if you have taken the time to educate yourself on the issues, understand how to logically deconstruct a story and have minor critical reasoning skills.
The sites you posted all have their own bias, the trick is learning how to identify it and make up your own mind.

why? Because investigative journalism is rare…because most of the “news” media info is supplied by PR companies…4 conglomorates with conflict of interest and zero ethics own and run the show- for exceptions see
thank goodness for the internet
