Bush Administration Subpoenas Micheal Moore Over Cuba Trip For Sicko

Bush Administration Subpoenas Micheal Moore Over Cuba Trip For Sicko
Michael Moore said Thursday that he has been served by the Bush Administration with a subpoena regarding his trip to Cuba to shoot his new film, Sicko. He was notified while he was at the Burbank studios to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. "I haven't even told my own family yet," Moore said. "I was just informed when I was back there with Jay that the Bush administration has now issued a subpoena for me."

Moore's trip to Cuba, with Sept. 11, 2001 workers, was "because I heard the al-Qaida terrorists we have in the camps there, detained, are receiving free dental, medical, eye care, the whole deal, and our own (Sept. 11) rescue workers can't get that in New York City."

11 percent of the film's box office receipts on Aug. 11 will be donated to by the Weinstein Company to "help these workers and the other workers who need help."
