Many adults in the United States think Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction before the start of the coalition effort, according to a poll by Harris Interactive. 50 per cent of respondents believe Saddam Husseins regime had such weapons when the U.S. invaded, up 14 points since February 2005.

And note this after years of Dem lies, and focusing on the bad news, while not telling people about the good news.
Belief in WMD in Iraq has increased with the new evidence being released.
CBSMSNBCABCNBCCNN and the DNC deeply saddened by the results of the poll.
What Americans BELIEVE is not of consequence, but maybe only to politicians. What is important is FACT, and he did have them, used them, killed thousands of people with them and wanted to make AND SELL MORE of them. And hopefully soon he will be dead.
The leftists will cry about how Fox News is misinforming people. The reality is Iraq did have WMD's, but their nuclear program was inept and not nearly as far along as out intelligence thought. Unfortunately, that overestimation is effecting how we are handling Iran, who is much further along.
And Paul Krugman and his ilk are whining "Who would have imagined that history would prove so easy to rewrite in a democratic nation with a free press?" In reality, now that the MSM no longer has it's monopoly on information history has a shot at NOT being re-written to conform to their wishes.
I do believe Iraq had WMDs. Some of them were used in Desert Storm, remember? I also think the Iraqi people are better off with Hussein out of the picture. However, I fear that democracy has little chance in Iraq, because it is just a matter of time before another brutal despot takes Hussein's place. The sects have been warring for centuries, and it will not stop until they've all killed eachother off. Satan abhors a vacuum, and to him, peace is a vacuum.
How many Americans still believe Elvis is still alive?
Who cares what the nosepickers in the back of the line think?
Common sense prevailing over propaganda?
'cause they did?
Hey Leftie, TROOF Hurts, don't it?
