Shocking! the better educated you are, the less likely you are to believe BushCo's bullshit lies!
Will wonders ever cease? Will Americans ever take their heads out of their asses? CNN's Bill Schneider told Wolf Blitzer this staggering poll number that simply defies all logic: BLITZER: Bill, as you know and as most of our viewers will remember, after 9/11, there was a period where top admin officials were holding out the possibility that perhaps Saddam Hussein, had much more to do with 9/11, although much more recently including the president in recent days has flatly said Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11, yet that is not reflected in this most recent CNN poll, is it? SCHNEIDER: No. 43% of Americans continue to believe Saddam is connected to 9/11. That belief is surprisingly resilient. The number has held pretty steady for the past 2 yrs, but it's not partisan. The number of Repubs that believe he was connected to 9/11 is 46%. The belief is powerfully related to education. (oh, THAT is NOT shocking, is it?) A majority of high school educated Americans believe Saddam was involved in 9/11. That number drops to 39% of those who attended college, 26% of college graduates, and only 19% of people who went to graduate school. The better educated and presumably better informed you are, the less likely you are to think that Saddam had something to do with 9/11." ... and the less likely you are to be a BushCo sheeple Kool-Aid guzzler. Scary-ass numbers like this make me praise my Bachelor's degree and the hrs I have put in towards my Master's degree. But scary-ass numbers like this make it all the more urgent as to why we need to sign this anti-mock-u-mentary petition, and tell moronic America, ABC & their sponsers the real facts about ABC's lie-filled mock-u-mentary "Path to 9/11" such as 1) Why won't ABC give advance copies to Prez Clinton, Madeline Albright, & Sandy Berger but has given them to Rush Limpballs, Hugh Hewitt and other wingnuts? 2) Why does 9/11 Commissioner Richard Ben Veniste, retired Gen Wes Clark, former Bush counterterrorism official Roger Cressey, former counterterrorism czar for Bush I, Clinton and Bush II, now counterterrorism adviser to ABC and author Richard Clarke, and Prez Clinton all present ample evidence that this ABC shlock is complete lawn fertilizer and is NOT based upon the 9/11 Commission's Report? 3) And better yet... why has ABC neglected to put these hardcore nuggets of truth into their joke of a documentary?: According to the 9/11 Commission, Att Gen Ashcroft repeatedly told the FBI during the high threat summer of 2001 that he "didn't want to hear of al-Qaeda" anymore. Newsweek reported "In the months before 9/11, the US Justice Dept curtailed a highly classified program called 'Catcher's Mitt' to monitor al-Qaeda suspects in the US." Additionally, AP reported "though Predator drones spotted Osama bin Laden as many as 3 times in late 2000, the Bush admin did not fly the unmanned planes over Afghanistan during its first 8 mos," thus terminating the reconnaissance missions started during the Clinton Admin, and who could ever forget Condi Rice telling us about that memo BushCo chose to ignore called "bin Laden determined to fly hijacked planes into buildings"? So, ABC... who TF fell asleep at the wheel?
