Michael Moore Backs Call to Re-Open Investigation of 9/11 Attacks

September 29, 2011

In his film "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore explored the complex ties between Bush administration officials and associates, the Saudi Royal family, and those believed to have carried out the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Today, Moore is backing former Florida governor and senator Bob Graham’s call for President Obama to reopen the investigation into 9/11 after new information emerged about the possible role of prominent Saudis. According to recent news reports, a wealthy young Saudi couple fled their home in a gated community in Sarasota, Florida, just a week or so before Sept. 11, 2001, leaving behind three cars and nearly all of their possessions. "There are many unanswered questions and they should be answered," Moore says. He also was targeted by his critics for this film. Moore talks about how the Bush administration worried the movie would hurt Bush’s re-election chances, and how he found out that he ranked second behind then-President Bush on the number of discovered plots to attack him.

Michael Moore and Bill Maher defend Tony Bennett’s 9/11 comments

by Andrew Jones
RawStory.com

Two people who aren’t afraid to agree with Tony Bennett’s controversial comments about 9/11 are Bill Maher and Michael Moore.

Harking back on their own experiences of getting condemned for provocative statements, both Maher and Moore defended the singer’s 9/11 comments on Real Time Friday evening.

In reaction to panel guest John Avlon saying “he was offended” by Bennett’s statements and labeling them “bulls–t,” Moore came in to vehemently defend the 85 year old crooner.

WATCH: Video from HBO, which aired on September 24, 2011.

“I’m not offended by what he said,” Moore said. “I think it was a brave thing to say, because what he was saying was much more complex. He wasn’t blaming and saying, ‘We’re responsible for our people getting killed.’”

Michael Moore Takes on Obama's Afghanistan Escalation on Larry King Live, December 2, 2009

"What are we doing in Afghanistan? This is absolutely insane ... 15 of the 19 hijackers, terrorists, killers, of 9/11 they were from Saudi Arabia. In fact there wasn't one Afghanistan citizen amongst them. We have been in this war for twice as long now as the U.S. was in World War II, twice as long as world war II. We defeated Hitler and Tojo and Mussolini in half the time it's taken us to find Osama bin Laden ..." Michael Moore

Big Talk from Michael Moore..

CANNES, France - Michael Moore said on Friday the new film would cover topics so "toxic" he probably should not make it. "It's something I shouldn't make, something that is dangerous," he said [speaking of his sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11].

"Our biggest enemy that we should have been afraid of during these last eight years was perhaps an internal one, and I don't mean ourselves," Moore said. "I mean people that were up to absolutely no good when it came to what was best for this country and best for the world."

"I think there should be a perp-walk coming out of the West Wing. The crimes that these people have committed go far beyond — and I'm not saying it on any kind of an emotional level or what my feelings are about Bush or whatever. I think there are very specific things that need to be looked at in terms of what they've done."

"What I'm going to say in this film is what probably 70 percent of them (audiences) don't want to hear," Moore said.

Let's give Mike some credit and support for this turn of events. Also I've heard that Michael's new movie is going to deal with the financial system in this country. Hopefully he delves into the Federal Reserve System a bit. He may come around.

We are going to have to deal with latecomers to our movement. They are necessary and should be welcomed. But I also believe we should remember those that were awake first and look to those for the truth in the future.

Plea for Help from 9/11 Rescue Workers to Rudolph Giuliani Goes Unanswered

[The following letter was e-mailed to Rudolph Giuliani on May 29th, 2007 by September 11th rescue workers left to fend for themselves after suffering illnesses caused by their work at Ground Zero in the days after the attacks. They never received a response.]

May 29, 2007

Dear Mr. Giuliani,

Ask Michael Moore to help, as he said he would!

Good Greetings fellow Truthers and site viewers

I noticed Michael Moore's latest email and I quote him saying,
"I see so many great documentaries and it's a shame that most of you don't get to see them. Later this year, I will announce a new project that will help other filmmakers get the distribution they deserve. "
Now we have already seen footage on YouTube of Michael Moore recently being approached by Truthers and Michael Moore saying that yes there are huge questions still demanding to be answered, that yes there was a coverup and that yes he supports a new investigation. As far as I can infer from what I know.

So should we not all then QUOTE Michael in his email here to all his supporters, and ask him to first support our boys behind "Loose Change Final Cut". For him to do this, if he really cares for the family victim groups as he showed in "Fahrenheit 9/11" and also the First Responders, as he shows in "Sicko".

mmflint@aol.com

I am sure if we flood him with such emails... he will no doubt support Loose Change Final Cut, whether overtly or covertly, however big or small.

Thats all from me,
Warm Regards with Peace

I'm a patriot, protests Moore

David Nason, New York correspondent

21jun07

HE is America's best-known left-wing agitator and for years his love of country has been under question, with the Bush administration and its supporters leading the charge.

But now documentary filmmaker Michael Moore says he has joined the mainstream and will no longer tolerate people branding him anti-American.

"Don't ever question my patriotism," a clean-shaven, besuited Moore bellowed at a questioner at New York's plush Regency Hotel on Park Avenue yesterday where he was promoting Sicko, a new documentary that tears the scab off the profit-driven US health system.

"I am a patriotic American. The most patriotic thing you can do is question your government, especially when they're screwing up like they are by not providing healthcare to our 9/11 rescue workers."

There was even a new, star-spangled element to Moore's trademark condemnation of President George W. Bush and the war in Iraq.

Moore Film's 9/11 Workers Denied Insurance, Sought Care in Cuba

Three ground zero workers who accompanied filmmaker Michael Moore on a trip to Cuba for medical treatment featured in his new movie "Sicko'' charged they were targeted by the U.S. government because of their participation.

"It's ridiculous after what we did for the city and the country on that day, that they won't allow us to go 90 miles offshore to get treated,'' Reggie Cervantes, a 46-year-old EMT who worked with only a thin dust mask after the World Trade Center collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, said.

The Brooklyn-based worker, among the first responders performing triage on the street below the burning towers, now suffers from severe pulmonary diseases, as well as kidney and liver problems.

NEW YORK -- Three ground zero workers who accompanied filmmaker Michael Moore on a trip to Cuba for medical treatment featured in his new movie "Sicko" charged Friday they were targeted by the U.S. government because of their participation.

"It's ridiculous after what we did for the city and the country on that day, that they won't allow us to go 90 miles offshore to get treated," said Reggie Cervantes, a 46-year-old EMT who worked with only a thin dust mask after the World Trade Center collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.

9/11 'Truth' Grips Michael Moore

I've knocked a lot of people for their affinity for 9/11 conspiracy theories. Big names are no exception.

Here is a video of documentarian Michael Moore implying that 9/11 might have been an inside job, and that the World Trade Center might have been brought down by a controlled demolition.

"Well, I've had a number of firefighters tell me over the years, and since Fahrenheit 9/11, that they heard these explosions, that they believe there is much more to the story then we've been told. I don't think the official investigations have told us the complete truth. They haven't even told us half the truth," says Moore on the video (Hat Tip: Reason).

The videographers also try to get New York Press columnist Amy Goodman, who witness the collapse of WTC7, to join their cabal. She doesn't bite.

Moore says he plans to look into the 9/11 conspiracies in his own special way eventually, so you can debunk Moore's next documentary early by checking out Popular Mechanics. How about another video:

It can't be said enough.

Article on Michael Moore from Post Chronicle

Looks like this is starting to pick up some press...

edit: The Title of this piece (as well as the body) attributes false statements to Moore. Although he questioned aspects of the attacks and called for a new investigation he did not claim that it was an "inside job".

Michael Moore: '9/11 Was An Inside Job,' Speaks At 'Sicko' Premiere
By Jack Ryan
Jun 20, 2007

http://www.postchronicle.com/news/original/article_21287595.shtml

Michael Moore has revealed that he thinks that 9/11 was an inside job. At Michael Moore's 'Sicko' film premiere, he let his opinion be known about what he thought of 9/11, and he thinks the tragedy was an inside job.

During Michael Moore's film premiere, two young men approached him for an interview and asked him to comment on the 9/11 tragedy.

When Moore was asked what he thought about 9/11, he claimed that there's much more to story and to the investigation than we know about. He says the government "hasn't even told half of the truth", and he intends to find out the whole truth.
