Re: M. Moore’s technicolor op-ed showing in your neighborhood theater. The Scandinavian Spectator Blog: Stambord runs “The Lies of Fahrenheit,” by Michael Moynihan in Stockholm, who picks this out of the movie of the week. It’s Condoleeza Rice making this claim:

“Oh, indeed there is a tie between Iraq and what happened on 9/11.”

“Pretty damning stuff, isn’t it?” asks Moynihan. “But that was the truncated, Michael Moore version. Now for the full, unexpurgated quote:

“Oh, indeed there is a tie between Iraq and what happened on 9/11. It’s not that Saddam Hussein was somehow himself and his regime involved in 9/11, but, if you think about what caused 9/11, it is the rise of ideologies of hatred that lead people to drive airplanes into buildings in New York.”

In other words, Moore doctored the quote to make Rice claim what the administration never denies it claimed. Naughty, but people eat it up. And P.T. Barnum would be pleased as punch.
