A majority of Americans no longer see a link between the war in Iraq and Washington’s broader anti-terrorism efforts despite President George W. Bush’s insistence the two are intertwined, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll released on Tuesday.
Fifty-one percent of those surveyed said the war in Iraq was separate from the U.S. government’s war on terrorism. The findings were a considerable shift from polls taken in 2002 and early 2003, when a majority considered the two to be linked […]
Uh-huh. Took us long enough to figure that out.

>Oh – NOW they see the light. Great timing. We're screwed.
>I have never been a conspiracy theorist, but the more I learn just how much the war on Iraq is not tied to terrorism the more I wonder just how much WE knew before the planes struck. What I find amazing (and I keep going back to this) is that we had pictures — pictures and video — of all the terrorists within 24 hours of those towers coming down.When you put the son of a former CIA director and an oil man in the white house you can expect damn near anything.
>It's no conspiracy theory Juan, it's what went down. We just still don't want to believe it. It was all a planned event.
>If you ever find yourself arguing about how those towers conveniently fell into their own footprints (something I was amazed by as I watched it live) and not over onto other buildings, the usual retort is, "planes hitting the buildings put the stress on them and knocked the fireproofing off the steel frames…" Then ask them why World Trade 7 fell. No plane hit it. No steel framed building has ever collapsed before or after Sept. 11.I have never gotten into conspiracies and the like but there are far too many problems with the official story to be believed. The twin towers each had 47 steel girders at their cored that supported the entirety of the gravity of those buildings and when the buildings came down, the cores were amazingly missing. Usually the government puts together the pieces of the puzzle and keeps every scrap of evidence related to an incident but every piece of steel from those buildings was immediately sold and shipped to China. Basically, removing the entirety of evidence from a crime scene.And Juan, it is far flung to believe that they would have photos/bios, etc. of those guys almost immediately.http://www.wtc7.net/
