September 10 News Update

Time/Discovery poll shows 38% believe Saddam Hussein was personally involved in 9/11 attacks. Must be viewers of Fox TV.

Another poll shows 36% believe US government itself involved in 9/11 attacks. Nutty? But then 38% still believe Bush doing OK job.

And Cheney asks, "Think where we would be if he (Hussein) were still there." OK, let's think. More than 2,500 American soldiers would be alive. More than 10,000 would not be wounded. Billions of dollars would not have been wasted. There would not be a civil war in Iraq. And a potentially new terrorist haven would not have been created.
