From the BBC News website:

The trailer for Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 9/11 has made its debut on the movie's official website.

The trailer will also be shown in cinemas across the US from Friday.

The documentary is being released in the US on 25 June by Miramax heads Bob and Harvey Weinstein, through a deal with two outside companies.

Miramax's parent firm Disney refused to distribute the film, which criticises President Bush's response to the 11 September attacks on the US.

Alleged links

The documentary recently won the prestigious Palme d'Or award at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Michael Moore's film made history, winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes

It is only the second documentary in Cannes' history to be awarded the festival's top prize.

The film explores the Iraq war and alleges links between the Bush family and Osama Bin Laden.

In the trailer, images of President Bush, joking with his supporters, are cut together with pictures from the Iraq war.

It shows clips about the overnight printing of the US Patriot Act, with senators admitting no-one read it, and President Bush had planes authorised to pick up Osama Bin Laden's family.

Global attention

Moore, who won an Oscar for his anti-gun documentary Bowling for Columbine, has said he hopes Americans see Fahrenheit 9/11 before they vote in this year's presidential election.

Moore, who makes no secret of his anti-Bush stance, thanked the Cannes jury for bringing his film to global attention.

"You will ensure that the American people will see this movie...You have put a huge light on this."

"I want to make sure if I do nothing else for the rest of this year that those who died in Iraq have not died in vain."

Notice the way the BBC are labeling moores film the "anti bush film" when it is anti NWO order anti corruption
by doing these if Bush does not get elected, which will be decided before the election, then everything will be alright. The terrible monster (now disgraced) mr Bush (skull an Bones) will go off to run a bank or nato or just count his loot and the nice mr kerry (skull an Bones) will take over the mobs operations. and the sheeple will go on with there soap opera lives ...

You are absolutely right. But I hasten to point out that as honourable a bloke Michael Moore is, he isn't quite with it as far as the NWO is concerned. And sadly, most people either have far more important things to worry about, like TeeVee and dandruff, have been duped by the bipolar left/right (divide and rule) continuum or are perpetuating the myth that this is all in the imagination of a few nutters because they can't admit to themselves that they have been duped.

Unfortunately, a lot of the police, armed forces and other 'powers that be' who will be patrolling the streets not long from now fall into these categories. I'd love to think that there are a few Jedburghs out there but loyalty in the unifrmed ranks is exclusively to the shilling.


All you paranoid conspiracy theorists!!
