9/11 Conspiracy-How Stupid Can You Be?

A new poll out states that a significant number of Americans believe that the Federal government engaged in a conspiracy to take down the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

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.

Then again, what can you expect from a people that glorify basketball players, actors, reality TV shows, rap music, gangsters and the like?

Shallow and gullible. Perfect fodder for political manipulation. What a good job by parents and the public education system.
