Ten years after the start of the Iraq War — long after the Bush administration’s own admission that there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq — a new Gallup poll indicates 42% of Americans still believe the Iraq War was “not a mistake.” Interestingly, that number is actually up from 2008, when only 36% believed invading Iraq was the right decision.
Ha! Incredible. This is kind of like those crazy statistics you hear about how 29% of Americans can’t identify the Vice-President or 26% don’t know we declared independence from Great Britain. Well, except for the hundreds of thousands of deaths, that is.
