Debunking '59 Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11'

The Terrible Twenty: Dave Kopel's Deceits Concerning Fahrenheit 9/11

"Another stupid "deceit" that Kopel lists is that Moore was lying by including the 9/11 footage of Bush sitting frozen for eight minutes, looking like someone who's farted and followed through, after he was told that America was being attacked. Kopel classes it as a deceit because the principal of the school where he was at has said that she thought Bush was trying not to panic the schoolkids. Hang on, that's a difference of opinion, not a deceit! If you want to go by opinions, how about the opinion of General Sir Michael Rose, former UN commander in Bosnia, who said after watching the footage, "Here is no Roosevelt, Churchill or Thatcher, but a deeply inadequate man whose mind is frozen with indecision and fear. It is a look I know well - if he had been a subordinate commander in battle I would have immediately relieved him of his command.""

The country is under attack and the Commander in Chief couldn't figure out how to excuse himself from a room of 7 year olds without sending them into a panic?

While Americans were dying, perhaps our country's leader could have delegated the task of localized, pre-teen riot control to the principal and teachers who were there.

haha.
That's true.
There's definitely more important things he could have been doing instead of reading My Pet Goat.

I think General Rose really hits the nail on the head.
