Disheartening figure of the day

Via the Daou Report

"Almost 90% [of U.S. troops in Iraq] think war is retaliation for Saddam’s role in 9/11" - Zogby International

How can 85% (the actual number, Zogby rounded up) of the troops not know that Saddam had no role in 9/11? They are putting their lives on the line for something that, as Peter Daou put it, "simply isn't true."

Something is very wrong here.

It was 1 in 1000 that named all 5 freedoms correctly (.1%, not .001%).
A mistake like that puts you in the same class as the other 999.

Wrong thread, though.
