Michael Moore, The Yale Taliban and the Afghan Pipeline

Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi, the former Taliban ambassador-at-large who is now studying at Yale, also played a cameo role in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9-11″ cleverly constructed propaganda attack against President Bush. John Fund of the Wall Street Journal has noticed this coincidence in recollecting the interview he had with Mr. Hashemi during the ambassador’s visit to the United States in 2001.

Michael Moore asserts that George Bush allowed Mr. Rahmatullah to enter the United States in 2001 because Unocal wanted to build an oil pipeline through Afghanistan and that the pipeline deal was set to benefit Enron, a company Mr. Moore alleged was a large contributor to then-Gov. Bush’s presidential run, with Halliburton receiving a contract to build the pipeline. Mr. Moore’s argument is a stretch.

Halliburton was never part of the CentGas consortium. (READ MORE)
