This isn’t the first time this has been noted, but it’s still pretty disturbing:
The idea that the Bush administration participated in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks is not limited to fringe Web sites and conspiracy theorists, according to a poll commissioned by a Web site that promotes alternative explanations for the events of September 11.
The poll, conducted by Zogby International for 911Truth.org and released last week, found that 31 percent of Americans do not accept the official explanation for September 11 — that “19 Arab fundamentalists executed a surprise attack which caught U.S. intelligence and military forces off guard.”
Among that 31 percent, around 26 percent agreed that the American government “knew the attacks were coming but consciously let them proceed for various political, military, and economic motives.” Almost 5 percent believed that U.S. officials “actively planned or assisted some aspects of the attack.”
Among self-identified Democrats, 42.6 percent chose an explanation other than the official one, as did 19.2 percent of Republicans and 30.5 percent of Independents.
Honestly it makes me proud to be a Republican. I guess those of us in the pejoratively named “faith based community” are dealing with reality a little better than those in the “reality-based community.”
Here’s the deal American voters…Next fall do you want to turn US foreign policy over to the Democrats knowing that after six years nearly half of them still can’t figure out who was responsible for 9/11?
I didn’t think so.
