I think Dubya was pretty damned ignorant about a lot of things. Especially since he had been warned in daily presidential briefings over 30 times about Bin Laden and his attack plans. A lot of strange things were happening then. I found it rather strange that the very day of the attack, an exercise about terrorist flying planes into buildings was being conducted in the same area, same time, same buildings and same senario as what actually happened. I found it strange that supersonic jet fighters could not make it to the pentagon from Andrews Airforce Base withing 45 minutes. I found it strange that building 7 fell and it hadnt even been hit by a plane. I found it strange that BBC Canada announced 21 minutes ahead of time that building 7 had fallen and building 7 was still standing in the background of the broadcast pictures, I found it strang that Dubya's daddy was having breakfast with a member of the Bin Laden family on the morning of 911, I found it strange that with ALL US planes grounded, that the Bin Laden family jet was flying all over, collecting up family and flying them out of the country. Yes, Dubya was pretty damned ignorant.
<quoted text>
Not strange at all that Bush Sr. was having breakfast with a Laden, as they are the big movers and shakers in the world. Not that I am sure this claim is even factual about Bush.\
If someone is going to insinuate our leaders were involved with 9/11, I expect some serious evidence, not just "strange" coincidences and unexpected things.
I do not think Bush was a good president, but I find it hard to fathom he would actually wish for a 9/11 on America. So again, unless I see some real evidence besides this circumstantial stuff, I am not swayed.

Poll: 70% believe Saddam, 9-11 link
WASHINGTON (AP)— Nearly seven in 10 Americans believe it is likely that ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the Sept. 11 attacks, says a poll out almost two years after the terrorists' strike against this country.
Sixty-nine percent in a Washington Post poll published Saturday said they believe it is likely the Iraqi leader was personally involved in the attacks carried out by al-Qaeda. A majority of Democrats, Republicans and independents believe it's likely Saddam was involved

A new Newsweek poll out this weekend exposed "gaps" in America's knowledge of history and current events.

Perhaps most alarmingly, 41% of Americans answered 'Yes' to the question "Do you think Saddam Hussein&#65533;s regime in Iraq was directly involved in planning, financing, or carrying out the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001?"

Despite the various commissions that concluded that Iraq was not providing support to Al Qaeda and did not have a WMD program, a “large and undiminishing minority of Americans continues to believe these were both the case.” Among those surveyed:

- 38% believe that the US has found clear evidence in Iraq that Saddam Hussein was working closely with Al Qaeda.
- 31% believe that Iraq gave substantial support to Al Qaeda but was not involved with the September attacks while an additional 15% believe that Iraq was directly involved in carrying out the September 11 attacks.
- 26% believe that Iraq had WMDs just before the Iraq War.
- 16% believe that WMDs were found in Iraq.

Additionally, among those polled, the beliefs that Iraq was connected with the 9/11 attack and that Iraq had WMDs immediately prior to the Iraq War were highly correlated with support for the Iraq War.

Nearly half of those who now say the Iraq war was the right thing to do connect 9/11 with Saddam. Consequently, 40 percent of Republicans believe Saddam was involved in 9/11, while just 27 percent of Democrats do.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/-- More than four years after the
attacks of September 11, 2001, many U.S. adults still believe some of the
justifications for the invasion of Iraq, which have now been discredited,
according to a new Harris Poll. For example:

-- Forty-one percent (41%) of U.S. adults believe that Saddam Hussein had
"strong links to Al Qaeda."
-- Twenty-two percent (22%) of adults believe that Saddam Hussein "helped
plan and support the hijackers who attacked the United States on
September 11."
-- Twenty-six percent (26%) of adults believe that Iraq "had weapons of
mass destruction when the U.S. invaded."
-- Twenty-four percent (24%) of all adults believe that "several of the
hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11 were Iraqis."

(2003 Washington Post poll) Did you believe that Saddam Hussein was personally responsible for 9/11?


-Nearly 70% responded "yes". It is common knowledge that Al Qaeda claimed responsibility, AND Saddam Hussein was at war with Al Qaeda, they were bitter enemies. The American people were led to believe that Saddam Hussein was personally behind the attacks.

-Almost 80% of troops also responded "yes."

Now why do you think 47% of people polled thought this? You can run from this point all day long. We know republicans always run like chickens from our points.
Was this the poll where 808 randomly selected liberals from NYC were questioned? What kind of responses did you expect?
No one is running, rather sitting here waiting on that link you can't find to support your ridiculous claims. Keep looking straw man.

TSF, just this very night I have learned that Topix does monitor posting. I probably should not have started my post with "I'm just discussing this with TSF, so I don't want Homeland Security at my door later tonight". Then I went all into the differences of uranium, how it works, what bombs can be made and even gave you a just for fun brainyac (?) math problem. Guess what, it never posted. Might want to drop this discussion and hope I don't have unexpected company tonight. You was off just a smidge and we both were kind of on the same page, but in the words of Bob Seger we'd better "Turn the Page."

A list of several polls on the question of Saddam and 9/11.

Now how did Pro American fail to find all these polls? Clearly he is not proficient in the WWW.

Now just why do so many Americans think (wrongly) that Saddam was connected to the attacks of 9/11?
IMO it is due to Bush talking about 9/11 and Saddam in the same breath on a very regular basis.
This is how propaganda works ladies and gentlemen.

Your original post claimed 75% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats. Now your posting a link claiming 40%/20%!
Just admit that you made that shit up and we'll call it quits.....straw man.

I have showed several polls that support my claims.

Now can you answer the questions of why so many thought Saddam was responsible for 9/11?
