There is skepticism and then there is paranoid delusion. With the urging of the anti-war left (aka the reality based community), Americans have gone from the former to the latter.
Two-thirds of Americans believe the government is spying on citizens:
Sixty-six percent of those questioned said that the FBI and other agencies are “intruding on some Americans’ privacy rights” in terrorism investigations, up from 58 percent in September 2003. Thirty percent think the government is not intruding on privacy.
Support for intrusive tactics has dropped even more significantly during that time. A bare majority, 51 percent, feel the tactics are justified, down from 63 percent three years ago.
Add to that the one-third of Americans (and I’m confident they’re all part of the 2/3 above) who believe the US government was complicit in the 9/11 attacks:
More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll.
This is no way to run a railroad, much less a war.
