Selling A War

Buried in a Telegraph (UK) article about Michael Moore and the Saudi Royal Family:

Prince Turki said that the Saudis were also keen to help stabilise the situation in Iraq. ‘Much of the equipment we have seized during raids on al-Qa’eda cells has come from Iraq,’ he said.

‘There is no doubt that as a result of the Iraq war it is easier for al-Qa’eda to sell their point of view to potential recruits. Al-Qa’eda has become stronger and more active since the Iraq conflict.’

What a way to spend our resources.

So Prince Turki al-Faisal says, “It would have been far better if Michael Moore had been able to read the 9/11 report before he made his film.”

And on Moore’s website, some things he read in the 9-11 report, and their page numbers:

* 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country after September 13. Confirmed, Commission Report at p. 556, n. 25 [Note that Fahrenheit 9/11 understates the number of Saudis who left.]

* Individuals were interviewed by the FBI before being allowed to leave (although the report confirms that most individuals on these flights were not interviewed.) Confirmed, Commission Report at p. 557, n. 28.

* White House former counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke approved these flights. Confirmed, Commission Report at p. 329.

I don’t know; I guess there’re two sides to this one.

Yeah, there’s the Crown Prince Abdullah version, or every word that comes out of Dumbya’s mouth, and there’s Michael Moore. I’m leaning with the fat white guy.

The Dark Avenger

Moore’s film has been banned in Kuwait.

Gee, I wonder why?


If Richard Clarke was told by Bush to get the BinLaden’s out, what difference does that make?
Bush still told him to do it?
