Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

More Evidence That Bush Admin and US News Media Are Misinforming the Public

Back in September of 2003 polls taken in the US showed that nearly 70% of the public thought that Saddam Hussein was behind the September 11 Attacks. Since then the 9/11 Commission and the CIA and countless other sources have reported that there is no evidence that Saddam was involved in the September 11 Attacks. We have heard from numerous experts who have said the same thing. Even members of the Bush Administration including President Bush and Vice President Cheney have admitted this. Although they repeatedly imply that Saddam was involved right after they admit the truth. A new USA Today/CNN/Gallup Poll shows that 42% of the American People still think that Saddam was involved in the September 11 Attacks, and 32% believe that Saddam personally planned them. A poll taken in June showed that 56% of all Republicans said they thought Saddam was involved with the 9/11 attacks. In the latest poll that number actually climbs, to 62%.

The independent commission that investigated 9/11 concluded in June that there was "no credible evidence that Iraq and al-Qaeda cooperated on attacks against the United States." The panel also said "contacts" between al-Qaeda and Iraq "do not appear to have resulted in a collaborative relationship."

On Tuesday Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s stated that he hasn't seen "any strong, hard evidence" to link Saddam Hussein and the al-Qaeda terrorists who staged the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

The fact that 42% of the US Public and 62% of Republicans still believe what has been proven false demonstrates not only the power the Bush Administration has in misleading the American People, but even more disappointing the complete ineptitude or unwillingness on the part of the Corporate-Owned US News Media Outlets to inform the public on this and many other important issues that are key to choosing our next president.
