"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Why are people surprised about His Holiness Mel's comments on Michael Moore and Fahrenheit 9/11?

Just in case you missed this, he made the comments at the People's Choice Awards, where his Jesus epic The Passion of the Christ and Moore's documentary cleaned up.
"I feel a strange kinship with Michael," Mr. Gibson said. "They're trying to pit us against each other in the press, but it's a hologram. They really have got nothing to do with one another. It's just some kind of device, some left-right. He makes some salient points. There was some very expert, elliptical editing going on. However, what the hell are we doing in Iraq? No one can explain to me in a reasonable manner that I can accept why we're there, why we went there, and why we're still there."
(Naturally, the AP wire story being used by Fox News omits the latter portion of the quote)

Don't people remember this?
"I am having doubts, of late. It mainly has to do with the weapons [of mass destruction] claims."
That comment was made in an interview with Sean Hannity, way back in March 2004. The interesting thing is that Moore's movie dealt very little with pre-war claims about WMD, and yet Gibson has other reasons for liking it. Interesting. At least this is confusing the Freepers.
