According to this CNN.com poll, over 30% of the people in the US are idiots who will believe what ever they’re told. I didn’t believe it myself, but these numbers don’t lie. Click this image to see for yourself:
What makes this even more interesting are the other stories involved. On the one hand we have the report from the 9/11 commission. Here’s a quote from their report:
The panel said it found “no credible evidence that Iraq and al Qaeda cooperated on attacks against the United States.”
Then we have the words of the Bush administration:
President Bush repeated his administration’s claim that Iraq was in league with al Qaeda under Saddam Hussein’s rule…
At this point, I would have a lot more respect for the President if he would just own up to it. Sometimes you just have to say “Sorry, I messed up.” But I don’t think Bush is that kind of person. I think he’ll stand by his original statement no matter what.
