Michael Moore is playing martyr to full effect in advance of the premiere of his latest crockumentary effort. He reportedly faces a US Treasury Department “probe” for taking ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers to Cuba for a segment in his upcoming health-care documentary “Sicko.”
Posted on his website this morning:
‘SiCKO,’ Michael Moore’s new movie, will rip the band-aid off America’s health care industry. Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in just one week and opening across the U.S. on June 29th, ‘SiCKO’ will expose the corporations that place profit before care and the politicians who care only about money. Our health care system is broken and, all too often, deadly. The efforts of the Bush Administration to conduct a politically motivated investigation of Michael Moore and ‘SiCKO’ will not stop us from making sure the American people see this film.
The message goes on to accuse the president of “abusing the legal process to advance a political agenda.”
The only one guilty of “abusing the legal process to advance a political agenda” here is Moore.
The Smoking Gun has the Treasury Department letter to Moore detailing the trade embargo, travel regulations, and licensing requirements Moore failed to meet before traipsing into Cuba.
