If this Harris poll is any indication. While the poll shows most Americans have a pessimistic view of the war and believe that it has made our country less respected in the war and has motivated more Islamic terrorists to attack America, there are some other, pretty disturbing numbers:
64% of poll respondents said they believe Saddam has strong links to Al Qaeda and exactly half believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when we invaded.
These statements, of course, are painfully inaccurate and just goes to show the depth of the misinformation that was, and still is, given to the American people by the Bush administration and their right-wing allies in the media. Who knows how big the majority would be against the war if these numbers were made lower.
This is why it is important our side continues to build an infrastructure in the media and other places to fight against the conservative tide. And without tooting our own horn or overstate our importance, why we at TWM should continue to do our small part as well.
