What I remember the most, and what makes me cry to this day, are those people looking fruitlessly for their family. Have you seen him? Have you seen her?

Hundreds of people showing photographs to the cameras behind TV reporters.

And the doctors lining up on the street in front of the hospitals waiting for the patients that never came.

Confused about all of the different wars and 'conflicts' in the world? Can't seem to keep it straight? You're not alone! Maybe this link will help you sort it out in your own mind:

A UK research paper on the current situation in the Sudan. LGF is having some great discussion threads on Sudan, and elsewhere. I recommend a jaunt over there for some insightful remarks and comments.

lgf:: "The Syrian musicians who behaved in such a disturbing way aboard Annie Jacobsen�s now-famous Northwest Airlines flight that they were pulled aside and screened by FBI and immigration after landing, were traveling with expired visas�and not one of the investigators even thought to look at the dates"

National Review Online ( "To the Iraqis, an army that could take out a feared Saddam in three weeks surely should have had free cell phones and air-conditioners on demand in two."

Terror in the Skies, Again? - WomensWallStreet: "Terror in the Skies, Again?
By Annie Jacobsen "
A must read. (Hat tip: LGF)
LGF Quote:
Jacobsen recounts a white-knuckle flight from Detroit to Los Angeles, that she and her husband shared with a group of about 15 Middle Eastern men (they turned out to be Syrians) who were almost certainly (judging from her description) conducting a dry run for a repeat of September 11, with teams of hijackers prepared for passenger resistance.
Conventional wisdom in the post-9/11 crowd says that airline passengers will fight back and overcome any hijack attempt. But what if passengers are faced with a highly organized team of 15-20 hijackers, with unconventional and undetectable weapons, conditioned by a lifetime of indoctrination to commit mind-wrenchingly savage acts of violence? And what if our government is still too hobbled by political correctness to recognize threats in time to deal with them—before the hijackers board the plane?
We should not be too complacent about our ability to resist if we find ourselves in a hijack situation, oh lizardoids. As much as we admire the passengers of Flight 93, we must not underestimate the enemy’s ability to learn from their mistakes and exploit our weaknesses.
And we shouldn’t underestimate their desire to repeat September 11.

Cox & Forkum Editorial Cartoons: "Security Breach"

Awesome Political Cartoon. Go there. Come back.

From Kopel's Fifty Six Deceits...

Interestingly, Fahrenheit omits one of the leading evildoers in Moore's grand conspiracy theory. As he told an audience in Liverpool, England, “It’s all part of the same ball of wax, right? The oil companies, Israel, Halliburton.” The oil companies and Halliburton are prominent villains in Fahrenheit, but there is no mention at all of Israel. Indeed, a Bush quote about terrorism in Israel is chopped to remove the Israel reference.
That Moore ignores Israel in Fahrenheit makes sense, given Moore's stated intention of using the movie to defeat George Bush in November. Most American Jews are
Democrats; if they found out what Moore believes about Israel (such as calling for the U.S. to cut of all aid to Israel, and use the money to buy weapons to give to the Palestinians), they might be considerably more skeptical about Moore's claims regarding other alleged global conspirators.

Moore Lied!!!

So here we are discussing the pros and cons of Moore’s film showing us all what a buffoon Bush is, and the only way to win America back [from what?] is to vote for John “Flip-Flop” “Man of the People” “I served in Vietnam for Four Months” “We have Better Hair” Kerry. How about Moore’s film? Pretty convincing? I would like to present some links here of a few articles written delineating some of the nuances (read: lies) Moore sold to the receptive American audience. (Hat tip: LGF)

Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11 by David Kopel

Farragoheit 9/11 by Melanie Phillips

More Distortions From Michael Moore by Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball

A quote from LGF’s Charles Johnson:

I saw the film today, and yes, it’s amazingly mendacious. Since there are already so many others doing a great job of debunking “Two Cheeseburgers” Moore, I’d like to write about an aspect of the film that nearly pulled me in—and ended up making me furious at Moore.

Moore knew he would have to deal with the actual 9/11 attacks somehow; so after the long, boring intro explaining how Bush stole the 2000 election (please, moonbats, stop with this already), we see the footage of the 9/11 atrocities.

Well, actually no—we don’t. Moore cuts to a black screen, and plays only the sounds of the attacks, before an extended montage of drifting ashes and papers, artfully floating through the air while mournful music plays.

At first, I thought this was a clever and effective way to evoke the memories of the worst terrorist attack on US soil.

And then, the question occurred to me: why would someone who clearly understands the power of images choose not to show the most powerful images of our time?

Because Moore knew that if he showed those images, which have been mostly absent from media for almost 3 years, he ran the risk of awakening the anger and feelings of intense danger we all experienced that day.

And that was a risk he could not run—because it could very well spoil the tone of the rest of the film, and expose him for the smirking, unserious buffoon he is.

After the blank screen 9/11 section of the film, he cuts almost immediately to scenes from talk shows, with bumbling people trying to sell anti-terrorism gadgets, and interviews several anti-Bush talking heads about the “climate of fear” that the Bush administration imposed on the country.

Moore is a canny filmmaker. He realized that if he segued immediately to this snarky, derisive viewpoint after showing people jumping to their deaths from the top of the World Trade Center, some of the Moore Koolaid drinkers might feel twinges of conscience; they might remember what it felt like to see the largest buildings in New York City collapse, crushing and ripping apart the bodies of thousands of their fellow Americans. Some of them might even start to come out from under Moore’s cinematic spell, if such an ugly reality were allowed to intrude.

They might get mad. And some of them would be mad at him.

So Moore, cowardly to the bottom of his hateful little shriveled soul, cut to a black screen.
