The Bush camp, with a little help from the "Soo-preme" Court, stole the 2000 presidential elections, at least according to Moore. The documentarian backs up this accusation with some pretty persuasive data in a bizarre game of connect the dots meets six degrees of separation, starting at the political desk of the Fox News Channel, run by Bush's first cousin, John Ellis, who made the decision to report Bush had won Florida a call that did not come from the news media polling group Voter News Service. After pointing out that Bush was on vacation 42 percent of the time during his first eight months in office, Moore introduces some never-before-seen footage of the President visiting a Florida classroom on the morning of September 11, 2001, where after being informed the nation was under attack, he continued to read My Pet Goat for seven minutes. The film openly accuses Bush of ignoring terrorism warnings prior to the events of 9/11 and using the American public's fear of more terrorist attacks to secure support for the war in Iraq. But what possible motive could Bush have for pinning the tail on Saddam Hussein and a country that at that point had never attacked or threatened to attack the United States? The film suggests it was to protect Saudi Arabia and the bin Laden family, who Moore claims once invested millions in Dubya's flailing Texan companies in the late 1980s in order gain access to his father, then U.S. president. Without missing a beat, Moore briefly touches on the war on terror in Afghanistan and Bush's promise to the nation to "smoke" Osama bin Laden out of his hole, but it is his Iraq portion of the film that is perhaps the meatiest, with its insightful interviews with U.S. soldiers and footage of suffering civilians usually relegated to the Al-Jazeera network.
