9/11 and the Globalization of Stupidity.

The world has now reached a new dimension in stupidity, according to this International poll:

A new poll of 17 nations finds that majorities in only nine of them believe in that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Now if you're a teacher, like myself, you may think this is a sign of poor education but not even:
Even in European countries, the majorities that say al Qaeda was behind 9/11 are not overwhelming. Fifty-seven percent of Britons, 56 percent of Italians, 63 percent of French and 64 percent of Germans cite al Qaeda." However, significant portions of Britons (26%), French (23%), and Italians (21%) say they do not know who was behind 9/11. Remarkably, 23 percent of Germans cite the US government, as do 15 percent of Italians.

It is almost remarkable that the French should not show worse results : after all, one of the leading proponents of 9/11 conspiracy theory is a French man called Thierry Meyssan and he has been given some coverage. (his book was translated in no less than The book was translated into 28 languages!).

Let's rejoice: political stupidity has now also reached global proportions (well, it probably always was, we just didn't know it!)
