Fahrencrap 9/11 will be shown free-of-charge in Seoul in an effort to get more Koreans to see the movie and oppose the deployment of Korean troops to Iraq. Mission accomplished, Michael Moore.

Given that they're planning 2 free showings this seems like it would have a pretty limited impact though, no?

I saw where a theatre owner somewhere in the US (?NC) was going to show the movie free of charge so people who were unwilling to have Maggot Moore get any of their money might be convinced to see the film. It might work for me - I feel I ought to see the thing but refuse to have him profit from my doing so.
By the way, I name it "Fraud-n-Hate 9-11".

I went and saw this so called "movie". One scene showed a raid conducted by US forces in Iraq on Christmas eve. As the soldiers were raiding the house it had subtitles of what the Iraqi woman was saying, "he is a student, and a good kid, why are you doing this". It didn't show why the raid was conducted or what was found. It showed the soldiers enter, then the brief thing with the woman, and then the soldiers leaving with a prisoner. I so tried not to throw up during this "movie". By the end of the "movie", 90% of the audiance (most of whom have served in Afghanistan and/or Iraq) were pretty pissed off. Mainly at the scene where it showed an american soldier who was killed in Iraq being laid to rest in Arlington, with Moore in the background laughing.
