SUMMER 2004 ISSUE
Fahrenheit 9-11 is a timely film. Michael Moore breaks the sound barrier on controversial political issues – and so some folks now swear the film must be full of lies. Surprise, surprise. G&G checked it out, and all of the movie's assertions are indeed the real, unembellished truth.
In fact, as it turns out, Moore soft-pedals the movie's most explosive scene: Bush's behavior on 9-11 itself. Moore lets Bush off the hook. What was really happening in that classroom? Bush sits there, pretending to listen to second graders read about a girl's pet goat.
The camera zooms in on his face. He looks confused, powerless, and terrified – and it has nothing to do with the goat. He knows one plane has hit the World Trade Center and another has been hijacked. When he's notified that the second plane has also crashed into the WTC, Bush just nods. He resumes reading. At this point, Moore lets Bush off the hook.
G&G doesn't. In this issue, we ask questions hotter than Fahrenheit 9-11...
