Plot Summary
Left-leaning documentary filmmakers Jeremy Earp and Sut Jhally present their case that the neo-conservative members of President George W. Bush's administration, including Vice-President Dick Cheney, saw in the 9/11 terrorist attacks an opportunity to force their ideological beliefs on a frightened nation. Interviews with leftist thinkers like Noam Chomsky, Michael Franti and Daniel Ellsberg buttress the central thesis that the Bush administration used the crisis for their own political ends.
