    I just watched a show on the History Channel that claimed that 36% of Americans believe the US govt played a roll in the destruction of the twin towers on 9/11.

    1/3 of our citizens are certifiable. Yet they also vote.....

    WERE SCREWED

    It did.

    Just who the fuck do you think funded Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan?

    (however.. that 36% probably has a different idea about the "involvement")

    It IS sometimes hard to believe how oblivious and incompetent Boooosh's administration was, and they did lie about Iraq, and the pub propaganda machine IS a disgrace. All I can really believe possible is they weren't worried enough, perhaps were looking for an excuse to go after Saddam (like the Cole), but didn't expect something as big as 9/11. Cheney IS a swine....but imho NO.

    Yeah, their idea was about bombs and intentional demolition. It's nuts. And then to think these people vote and participate in everyday society is scary.

    Yep. Instead of using this as a cautionary tale about funding fruitcakes, even if we have the same aims..they prove themselves to be fruitcakes. And put a damper on any real discussion about how things really went wrong with 9/11.

    Yes, our Government supplied weapons to drug cartels in Mexico to undermine our 2nd Amendment rights and supported Al Qaida in Libya. Wells Fargo did launder 300+ billion in drug money. That much is true.

    But the idea that our gov't trained and supported Al Qaida here on 9/11 is a "conspiracy theory" and "craaaaaaaazy talk!" :uhoh3:

    Furthermore, while most people believe the Kennedy Assassination was a conspiracy, you can be rest assured that it was the only conspiracy in our entire country's history!

    Many are the same people who believe Obama is a Kenyan Muslim Communist, or ACORN stole the the election. Fewer LW loonies around. The USA is a hotbed of ignorant conspiracy types.

    I'm well aware we funded and armed them. That isn't the point of this thread or the poll, but I'm sure you knew that and just desired a party line fight. I'm not biting.

    I don't know about stupidity but the current level of hard hearted hatefulness just might do us in.

    Ever wonder why we been getting hit with one catastrophe after another. Just look at the general spiritual condition.

    If you have the capacity for abstract thought you have to understand that the American intelligence agencies often make mistakes in judgment but it doesn't mean the Clinton administration conspired with the Bush administration to blow up the Twin Towers. Stalin was once an ally of the US. FDR even called him "uncle joe". The CIA supported Castro's revolution and then JFK tried to assassinate him. The US gave aid to Afghanistan rebels to keep Russia from taking over the country. NATO changed the government in Egypt and Libya and God knows how that will work out.
