Subject: RE: Fahrenheit 9/11 responses
One a recent 60 Minutes, Michael Moore made a pretty telling remark. They showed a clip from Bowling for Columbine, in which Moore asked Charlton Heston (head of the NRA) why it is that even though people in other countries own lots of guns, there are more murders per person and per gun in United States. Heston responded that that's because there is more "ethnic diversity" in the United States. The interviewer told Moore that many people say of him that he tries to embarrass people on camera. Moore responded that he didn't tell Heston to say what he said. "I put people on camera with their consent and they embarrass themselves!"
On that clip of Bush in the classroom on 9/11/2001, when he was told about the attack on the World Trade Center, no one (Moore wasn't there when that clip was filmed) directed Bush to look scared, bewildered, shifty-eyed, and completely at a loss as to what to do. He did that all by himself.
