Why Fahrenheit 9/11 Is A Conservative Film

Robert Jensen offers a lengthy and intelligent critique of Moore's latest film from a left perspective in "What Michael Moore Misses About the Empire".

. . . it is a serious mistake to believe that these wars can be explained by focusing so exclusively on the Bush administration and ignoring clear trends in U.S. foreign and military policy. In short, these wars are not a sharp departure from the past but instead should be seen as an intensification of longstanding policies, affected by the confluence of this particular administration's ideology and the opportunities created by the events of 9/11.
