Filmmaker Michael Moore revealed on Thursday's "The Tonight Show" with
Jay Leno that the Bush Administration had served him with a subpoena
regarding his recent trip to Cuba made as part of his new film, Sicko.
Moore told the audience that he was notified of the subpoena
"I haven't even told my own family yet," Moore remarked. "I was just
informed when I was back there with Jay that the Bush administration
has now issued a subpoena for me."
The Oscar-winning filmmaker filmed his trip to the US base at
Guantanamo Bay, where he pleaded with military officials to let three
9/11 rescue workers enjoy the benefits of healthcare extended to
"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," Moore
The workers later received care and heavily discounted prescriptions
at Cuban hospitals.
