It is absolutely vital that people see this film.  Unlike Fahrenheit 9/11, director William Karel directs a straightforward, critical look into the Bush family and Administration minus the self serving narration and antics of Moore.

Karel instead, let's the film's interviewee's dictate the story. We're talking a real list of heavyweights, delivering damning evidence and insight into the world around Bush.

Some of those interviewed include:

Joseph Wilson, who discredited the infamous Nigerian uranium link and whose wife's (a CIA operative) name was leaked in retaliation.

David Kay CIA weapons inspector who resigned over the WMD fiasco

Former CIA director James Woosley and various CIA and NSA operatives

UN weapons inspector Hans Blix

Various academics & journalists including Norman Mailer

NeoCon Richard Perle

Frank Carlucci of the Carlyle Group

Colin Powell

I think people should see and read everything available, and decide for themselves what is true or relevent, including Stolen Honor, which for some reason Kerry and his legal team don't want folks to see (along with his full military record which he still hasn't made available) and have gone to great lengths, including costly lawsuits and threatening an anti-trust investigation against the station that was planning on airing it, to attempt to achieve that goal. Imagine that. He's for AND against freedom of the press.

Which makes you wonder why nobody has seen or covered this movie? I'm not certain but it's possible it's been banned in the states, can anyone confirm?

I certainly haven't seen this title before, so it's new to me.

My mind is already made up, and I've already voted Kerry, but it's great to have more and more resources available to the public.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

It's a must see documentary Noah, facts and insight from Bush insiders, the intelligence community, scholars, journalists and historians.

There was a good documentary on BBC2 last week, which will be followed up in another two parts I believe. It was called "The Power of Nightmares"

Thanks Marshalazu, the CBC broadcasts many excellent documentaries from around the world on it's series the Passionate Eye. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see this there soon.

Raph, this movie showed at our film festival and as it states in this particular article they were surprised there was no interest in the U.S. as it was truly an eye opener was it not?  Hard not to believe those interviewed in this one. http://www.iofilm.co.uk/festivals/vancouver/2004/world_according_to_bush.php

Sad to say, I hadn't even heard about that movie. It MUST be truthful good, in other words, and not pablum or poop.

Well Kacy the director is French which is reason enough for some to ignore the film
