I saw an article a while back that cited a poll in the US that suggested a significant number of the US public had linked Saddam with the 9/11 attacks. It appears the Administration did little to counter this misconception - perhaps even encouraged it.
Will the 9/11 Panel's findings impact on the November election?
Alternatively, will these revelations simply turn more people off politics and result in even fewer people turning out to vote?
I noted, following the low turn out for the European elections, a quote from a Polish source "we have had democracy for 15 years now - it is no longer a novelty, people are pretty much bored with it".
Things happen so quickly these days - it took us about 150 years to get to that stage.
