Michael Moore not happy about bin Laden "execution"
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Michael Moore thinks Osama bin Laden's death at the hands of U.S. Navy Seals is a conspiracy, and will likely expand on his thesis when he is interviewed by CNN's Piers Morgan later on Thursday.
In more than 40 Tweets over the past several days, the documentary filmmaker made his case in 140 characters or less. A few are excerpted below:
"What's so wrong w/ just saying the truth? "We executed him." Fine. I'm guessing most would applaud u. So I like trials! Call me an American!" he wrote.
"I'm not opposed 2 dumping him in the sea, I agree no monument 4 a mass murderer, I just don't need the added BS of "according 2 Mulism (sic) law." he wrote. "Yes, and to repeat, whenever I've gone 2 the funeral of a Muslim friend in Detroit, we all hop in a chopper & drop the body in Lake Erie."
Added Moore, "OBL was said 2 have $30 mil net worth. But we didn't start profiling rich people. No, we gave them their own fast trak line at the airport!
"OBL was about as true a Muslim as Timothy McVeigh was a Catholic. But no headline ever read "Catholic Blows Up Fed Bldg in Oklahoma City."
"How come no headline ever read "Multi-Millionaire Murders 3,000"? It would have been correct. No, best to focus on OBL being a "Muslim,'" he added.
"As long as he wasn't conducting terror, OBL alive served a purpose. Someone should just fess up: The war industry needs fear to make $$," said Moore.
