On the 10 year anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, this evening Piers Morgan will welcome Michael Moore for a live, face to face interview.
Taking to his Twitter account, which boasts nearly 1.5 million followers, earlier today the filmmaker offered some reflection:
10 yrs ago tonight. To think, our own president did this. He was an American, but he told a lie so he could send other Americans off to die.

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" for the entire hour, Moore will share the trademark brand of candor and insight that has made him a household name, in the process landing his films on lists amongst some of the most influential, controversial, and polarizing of the last quarter of a century.
Outspoken on politics, the environment, and the economy, the 58-year-old native of Michigan is also particularly passionate about assault weapons and firearm legislation, a theme that led to his 2002, Academy Award winning movie "Bowling for Columbine."
Based around the events that led to the massacre at Columbine High School, Moore has since become a national voice on gun control, last discussing the matter with Morgan in July, following the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo.
So frustrated and enraged by the incident and those before it, Moore promised that he wasn't "going to come on another one of these damn TV shows either, after the next one of these shootings." It was a pledge he kept, even through the December tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
However, in advance of what he's calling a "Mass Movement Against Gun Violence," tonight Moore will again address an issue about which he says "now is the moment to make this happen."
Tune in this evening at 9 as the man behind such films as "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Roger & Me" further addresses topics he deems critical to the future of the country.
