In a recent poll, 50% of 1,020 Americans declared that they believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the United States invaded the country in 2003. Last year, it was only 36% that answered this question positively.
Pollsters deemed the increase both "substantial" and "surprising" in light of persistent press reports to the contrary in recent years.
It seems that George W. Bushs spin doctors are worth their money. The other possibility is that the average IQ of U.S. citizens is dropping rapidly.
