Polls: More Than 4 in 10 Americans Still Think Saddam Involved in 9/11 Attacks
Five years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, better than 4 in 10 Americans still believe that former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein was personally involved in those attacks, according to two recent polls.
An Opinion Research Corporation on behalf of CNN released today on numerous issues surrounding the Iraq war, asked whether Hussein was personally involved in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Fifty-two percent said he was not, but 43% said they believe he was.
This comes despite wide media debunking of this notion for years. At a news conference this past August 21, President Bush was asked if Iraq had anything to do with 9/11 and he said it had "nothing" to do with the attacks. Yet polls show that a majority of Republicans continue to state that Hussein was involved.
A Zogby poll released earlier this week found similar results, with 46% claiming that Iraq was connected to 9/11, again with 2 out of 3 (65%) of Republicans feeling this way.
The poll of 1,004 American adults for CNN was conducted Aug. 30 to Sept. 2. Zogby polled 1,014 from Sept. 1 to Sept. 5.
