You know, I want to believe you. You’ve been an outspoken man, who’s given a voice to people who didn’t have one.
But you got more and more outrageous. You started manipulating things. You lied by omission. You stretched the truth. It got more and more outrageous.
So now when you say you have footage of people being abused in Iraq, I am angry. Angry because you are the boy who cried wolf. So now those who want to deny the torture will hold you up there as an example. It can’t be true, they’ll say, because Michael Moore is involved.
People will think they’re staged. I’m certainly doubtful of the validity of your footage.
And what will this do? Besides further harming the nearly destroyed Iraqi-American relationship, it will just put our troops at risk. And if you’re one of those cold hearted bastards that feel nothing for the soldiers fighting over there? Fine. Think of this. When there is more of a backlash against the soldiers, you don’t think they’ll lash out further? They’re an 800 pound gorilla. It will just escalate things further.
But hey, it’s just human lives — doesn’t matter when you have a show to put on at Cannes, does it?
