Stone Denies Bush Malice

Director Oliver Stone has dismissed suggestions his new movie W is an attempt to undermine U.S. president GEORGE BUSH's administration.
The movie - starring Josh Brolin as the current leader - is due for release just weeks before the November (08) presidential elections.
But Stone deems his film is a service to voters, rather than a disservice to the Bush administration.
He says,"It was not our intention to bring malice or judgment on George W. Bush and his administration.
"He and his administration clearly speak for themselves. This man has left us with three wars - in Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on
terror - and the legacy of the pre-emptive strike."
He adds, "These are legacies that will haunt his successor for years. It's good for people, before the election, to think about
who they elected eight years ago and about where we are as a country right now."
Dana Perino, a Bush spokesperson, has refused to acknowledge the film, insisting the office has "much more important things to do than comment on this ridiculous movie".
