Confusion and Ignorance Lower But Still High.

Here are some interesting figures from a recent Harris Poll with regard to the number of Americans who believe in Saddam Hussein's link to Al Qaeda or 9/11. While there is some great improvement, one may wonder why there is still such a high level of confusion and ignorance in the American public.
Well, the lies and spin of conservative pro-war advocacy groups like Move America Forwards certainly entertain all sorts of confusion and ignorance as you can read in details in this free online article in the Wall Street Journal.
