MOORE MOVIE BIGGER ON PROMOTION
THAN CUTTING EDGE CONTENT
By David Icke
I've just watched the Michael Moore documentary, Fahrenheit
9/11, on its first day of public screening in the United States.
First of all it is great to see that information kept from the people, basic as it is in this documentary, is being made available to counter some of the massive bias in the mainstream media. To Americans who know nothing about the political and media manipulation it will be a revelation, but for those who have done a modicum of research will find little here to increase their awareness.
The documentary misses an enormous opportunity to reveal the true scale of the Conspiracy
behind 9/11 and current events. It reveals that Bush is a lazy, incompetent fool; that the bombing of Iraq caused horrific civilian casualties; that US troops are being killed and maimed to defend an invasion justified by a Big Lie; that the parents of those civilians and troops suffer unspeakable emotional trauma from losing their loved ones; that Bush was scammed into power at the last election; that the Bush family has serious connections to the Bin Laden family and the Saudi royals; and that the corporate cartels make fortunes both from supplying the weapons to destroy cities and infrastructure and then by 're-building' the devastated countries and seizing control of their resources, like oil.
All this information needed to be included, of course, but it is widely available either by scanning a vast stream of Internet sites or often even through some parts of the mainstream media. In the case of Bush being a lazy, incompetent fool, you only need your eyes and a few brain cells.
I have seen BBC documentaries about the government/media slanting of the invasion of Iraq and the way the U.S. authorities are targeting the poor and jobless to join the military that tell the same story that Moore does.
Yes, it is good that Americans are getting a chance to see such material, but to justify the colossal hype this documentary has received it surely should have gone much further and produced background that would never be found in any mainstream media source. After all, it cannot be claimed that such information is not available to Michael Moore.
Most disappointing was the way he accepts and perpetutates the official 9/11 story that it was orchestrated by Osama bin Laden via 19 Arab terrorists, mostly Saudis, who learned to fly jumbo jets at one engine, two-seater, flying schools. This is blatantly ludicrous and the information to expose such nonsense can, once again, be found at a long list of 9/11 websites and books.
In fact, I sent a copy of Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center Disaster to Michael Moore some 18 months or so ago when he was speaking in London. Some of the most basic information in the book and on the Internet is included in the film, but the most important background to 9/11 is not even mentioned.
As with Bowling for Columbine, Moore picks an easy and obvious target while often massively missing the point. Getting rid of Bush is not going to change anything except the rhetoric and the presentation. The agenda will continue whichever of them should win. Where was the fact that both Bush and Kerry are initiates of the same elite and Skull and Bones Society, for example, which both refuse to talk about?
Any suggestion that Iraq was about more than just oil and money or that there is a Conspiracy
behind world events is not even mentioned, except for one contributor who tells us that there is no Conspiracy
to control the world. It is all just about money, he said.
Where was the story of the Project for the New American Century and its document that sets out the very agenda for global conquest involving Iraq, Iran, North Korea and China, etc., which the Bush administration has been slavishly following since it came to power under the control of the very people behind the PNAC? Where was the fact that the document said a year before 9/11 that its agenda would be slow to unfold 'absent some catastrophic and catalysing event like a new Pearl Harbor' and that after the 'new Pearl Harbor' of 9/11 those horrific attacks have been used to rapidly advance the PNAC agenda?
These were among many such glaring omissions.
I am delighted the movie is out there, disappointing as I found the depth of research, but the danger is that people will think they now know the information that has been kept from them and therefore fail to realise that Moore has about 2% of the real background to global events and control. Or that they will focus themselves on targeting and removing Bush when he is just a puppet and Kerry would be another.
Outside the theatre where I watched the documentary there were activists seeking to use it to attract support for anti-Bush campaigns and to register to vote when the system is so rigged that voting is a quaint irrelevance.
Michael Moore could have used his high public profile and film-making resources to show people the far more fundamental background to global control, the emerging global fascist state, and the real road to freedom.
Instead, unless people realise this is only part - and a small part - of the story behind global events this movie will lead them into another cul-de-sac.
Fahrenheit 9/11 could have been a fantastic contribution to human understanding of the forces that manipulate the global population. Instead, I thought it was far too timid, limited and one-dimensional.
It is worth seeing if you know nothing of the world beyond the official story, but what an opportunity lost.
