    So I just watched the DVD documentary Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the War in Iraq. Prior to watching it I was opposed to the Bush Admin but in favor of the pre-emptive war in Iraq which I deemed necessary to prevent another 9/11 in the U.S. The only reason I mention that is because, having watched this thing, I am completely and utterly at a loss... The document boasts the most impressive series of interviewed experts, ranging from White House upper-echilons to UN Weapon Inspectors to (most importantly) CIA directives and analysts. The documentary reveals INNUMERABLE proven lies, embellishments, and falsifications that the administration made in their justification for war (which, had they been telling the truth, would have completely justify our invasion and occupation). I literally don't know where to start. But please, if you have true bipartisan patriotism in your hearts, please watch this comprehensive, diffinitive, unbelievably eye-opening indictment of the lies told by the Bush admin. and, most importantly, irrefutible evidence that they knew they were lying about countless justification claims.

    Anyway I bought this sucker on Amazon, its very cheap, and it will change your entire perspective on the partisan hatred that exists in our singular, extraordinary country today.

    Actually, despite making many salient points, I didn't think Farenheit was all that great. Especially the part about happy Iraqis dancing and playing and going to weddings and smiling under the Saddam regime and then BOOM the imperialistic cruise missles come crashing down. That was pretty ludicrous.

    That being said, Michael Moore is a partisan ranter akin to Ann Coulter, Al Franken, Bill O'Rielly, et al.

    So if you're looking for U.N. weapons inspectors, CIA administrators and analysts, White House officials, and others who themselves prepped CIA intel for Bush's administration specifically and systematically ripping to shreds, for example (and their are dozens), Colin Powell's visual-aid presentation to the U.N., piece by piece, difinitely, systematically, and unequivocally pointing out lies, fabrications and scare tactics, then you can watch this documentary, which is actually documentary and not partisan ranting like most of Farenheit is.

    If people watch this and continue to stick ehind this neoconservative-run administration, then the blind partisanship that does not allow people to see the subversive, unpatriotic shortcomings of this administration is even stronger than I thought.

    Sure. Prior to seeing this, you supported the war and were open minded. And i'm jean claude van damme.

    Moore is a proven liar. I challenge you to find a lie of either coulter or Oreilly. Moore is not worthy to lick crap off Coulter's shoes.

    The lies of Bill O'Rielly and Ann Coulter:

    1. Bill O'Rielly was an "avowed" Independent when he joined Fox News. I say avowed because he was actually a registered republican. This is proven by a cursory glance at his voter registration card. He lied about it, and he lied about something that can be checked out incredibly easy.

    2. When Dale Earnhardt died (feb. 18th, 2002) Ann Coulter wrote in her book that every newspaper carried it except for the New York Times which waited 2 days and then buried it, because the Times is too elitist and liberal to care about a NASCAR driver. In REALITY, the Times carried it on the FRONT PAGE, the DAY AFTER he died. To check this out read "Slander" and go to the Times front page archive for feb 19th, 2002.

    3. Ann Coulter's old Connecticut drivers license says she was born in 1961. Her D.C. license says 1963. She lied about the D.C. age, and then told everyone THAT was her correct age. Which, incidentally, would have meant she commited voter fraud by voting at age 16 in 1979.

    4. On page 8 of Slander, her book, she says Jesse Jackson's 1994 X-mas day speech was never reported on by the NY Times, again citing its liberal nature as cause. The only problem was, they DID, 5 days BEFORE the speech, which was pre-recorded for their convenience. Again, if you don't believe me this is insanely easy for you to see for yourself.

    5. Slander, page 134 says that during Iran-Contra, Reagan's approval rating fell only 5 points from 80-75 percent, citing a Christian Science monitor article from January 7th, 1987. THAT SAME ARTICLE in REALITY says that his approval rating fell 63 to 47 percent. So I'd consider MAKING SHIT UP lying. Again, very easy to fact-check this shit.

    6. Bill O'Rielly likes to tout how he "came from nothing" (his words), and grew up in the blue-collar town Levittown, Long Island. Problem is, he actually was born and raised in the affluent suburb, Westbury, and went to private school, took vacations in florida, etc. etc. So to cover up this lie O'Rielly said (in his own words) that he came from the "Westbury section of Levittown". Problem is, THERE'S NO SUCH THING. They are completely different towns far far apart. Again, go to Mapquest if you want to see just how true this is.

    Ok I'll post more of their lies later, but my lunch break is over now.

    I've seen all of these and concrete refutations of your claims. The only one I can remember right now is that Bill O'Reilly produced a deed to his parents' old house in Levittown. If they didn't live there, why'd they own a house there?
