    If you would have bothered to read what I posted, then your post wouldn't have looked so foolish. From Mike Moore:

    Sounds convincing, eh?! There's only one problem -- 'Sicko' had just been playing in Cuban theaters. Then the entire nation of Cuba was shown the film on national television on April 25, 2008! The Cubans embraced the film so much so it became one of those rare American movies that received a theatrical distribution in Cuba. I personally ensured that a 35mm print got to the Film Institute in Havana. Screenings of 'Sicko' were set up in towns all across the country.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Those that have knowledge of the reality of the health care system in Cuba recognized Michael Moore's documentary Sicko, as a propaganda tool for the Castros dictatorship. Moore employed the most effective Stalinist methods of agitprop, depicting Castros’ health care system as the finest in the world.

    The regime health-care system falls very short of its classless claims as shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pqv5...layer_embedded

    This leak confirms that Michael Moore is a consummate propagandist.

    That does appear to be the case, yes. Never mind that they had no motivation to lie in the cable, but Moore, on the other hand . . .

    I find it humorous that Moore is the one who bailed the leaker out of jail.
    He's probably going," Damn these leaks. I thought they'd only be about George Bush!"

    Actually, he seems pretty happy.

    Was that before he knew that there were leaks about his movie, that he says are frauds?

    Sorry, I didn't watch the entire interview. However he was doing plenty of praising of Wikileaks for uncovering concocted lies by the government etc. So it seems he's saying we deserve to know the truth from Wikileaks, unless it's about his movie, and then we can't trust them.

    Oh shoot, I don't know. Maybe I've got it all wrong. I haven't been keeping up with Moore or Wikileaks except for what i catch on DP.

    If Moore and his supporters claim that this report isn’t accurate, where does that leave us face to face Wikileaks? If the Wikileaks documents support your cause they are the definitive truth but if they don’t support the cause it’s more evidence of government dishonesty. Michael Moore, it is worth pointing out, pledged money to Assange’s bail efforts. What a shock.
