Half of America still completely moronic

According to a Yahoo! news article, half of America still believes that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), according to a new poll. Experts explained that most ignorant Americans forge these opinions after being so dramaticaly effected by "a drumbeat of voices from talk radio to die-hard bloggers to the Oval Office, a surprise headline here or there, a rallying around a partisan flag, and a growing need for people, in their own minds, to justify the War in Iraq."

Yahoo! tells us the actual facts are far from the opinion. "After a 16-month, $900-million-plus investigation, the U.S. weapons hunters known as the Iraq Survey Group declared that Iraq had dismantled its chemical, biological and nuclear arms programs in 1991 under U.N. oversight. That finding in 2004 reaffirmed the work of U.N. inspectors who in 2002-03 found no trace of banned arsenals in Iraq."

A ranking member of the RNC, William Blake, noted that "it's not that we are lying to the public, as much as we are telling them something that has a 99 percent chance of being wrong. Until it's actually proved wrong, hell, it's up in the air." He added, "It's like what we're doing with the evolution thing."
