DC Intern Diaries

I'm a female 24 year old DC permanent intern. You name it and I've probably interned it. I'm also a graduate student in DC.

Americans will believe anything Bush tells them....how sad

"More than half of Americans, 54 percent, continue to believe Iraq (news - web sites) had weapons of mass destruction or a program to develop them before the United States invaded last year, according to a poll released Friday. Evidence of such weapons has not been found. Half believe Iraq was either closely linked with al-Qaida before the war (35 percent) or was directly involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on this country (15 percent)."

Does anyone learn to question soundbites anymore?? So the president makes something up or alludes to things that aren't true (like linking Saddam and al-Qaida) and a large percentage of our country just suck it up without any thought. Like zombies. These numbers are disturbing. Although the first question is phrased so you only have to think they had a program to develop them, which probably can never be fully proved or disproved (especially depending on how you define "program," the Bush admin probably defines it as a "thought" which would mean they're right, since Saddam probably at least thought about WMD).
