At home, such talk remained on the fringes of political life even as the war got under way. But fueled in part by anger over the deceptions of the war, the lack of accountability or disclosure on the part of the Bush administration with respect to the 9/11 Commission, and civil liberties abuses in the aftermath of the attacks, the popularity of conspiracy theories was steadily growing in 2003 and 2004.Then, in the summer of 2004, Michael Moore 's Fahrenheit 9/11 was released, earning more than $100 million to become the top-grossing documentary of all time.
