A third of Americans believe government blew up the WTC??

According to Scripps Survey Research Center, over a third of Americans believe our government either orchestrated the 9/11 attacks [!!] or knew about the plans but deliberately took no action to stop them "because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East."

Sixteen percent believe the towers came down because government agents secretly planted explosives in them--presumably months before 9/11. That means one in every six adults believe our government conspired to kill 3,000 Americans -- and potentially as many as 25,000, given the usual occupancy of the towers.

Why would the government (according to the moonbats, anyway) do such a ghastly thing? Here are the authors' actual words:
Thirty-six percent of respondents overall said it is "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon or took no action to stop them "because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East."

I know there are a lot of moonbats in this country, but it's hard to believe that 36% of Americans are this loony. Frankly, I want to see the actual wording of the questions the survey used before accepting the authors' conclusion.

I don't know the politics of the Scripps Survey Research Center but reading other survey summaries on newspolls.org suggests the authors are pretty far left. If that turns out to be true I suspect the survey may have been loaded to increase the number of respondents who ended up agreeing with the Left's premise.

But if it's a legitimate, unbiased survey...wow.
