Moore speaks out on prisoner abuse

Michael Moore is back in Cannes, this time with anti-Bush film Fahrenheit 9/11, and he’s even angrier than when previously here with 2002’s Bowling for Columbine.

This latest film shows shocking footage of abuse similar to the photos that recently came to light. American soldiers put bags over the heads of Iraqis and ridicule them while posing for photos alongside them.

Moore claims that the American media have covered up such images. He’s incredulous at how easy it was for his team to get footage of Iraqis being mistreated.

“With our limited resources you have to ask why the American media, there every day, many networks with millions of dollars invested in this, haven’t shown that,” he says.
