Bin Laden desperately tries to reclaim 9/11

As the five year anniversary of 9/11 approaches, new polling data suggests 36 percent of Americans believe federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or deliberately took no action to stop them. Another 43 percent hold Saddam Hussein personally responsible for the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

I'm going to go out on limb and say the 36 percent who believe America aided in 9/11 and the 43 percent who place the blame on Saddam are fairly disparate population groups -- meaning somewhere between 60 and 70 percent of Americans think either the US government or Saddam had a hand in 9/11.

These surveys may have exposed us Americans as a gullible lot, but they have also clearly rankled once-alleged 9-11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden.

And what a surprise, we suddenly have a new
tape that shows Bin Laden meeting with some of the 9/11 hijackers and Al Qaeda discussing 9/11 before it happened.

After setting the bar pretty high as a terrorist mastermind, Bin Laden is in a deep slump. With other viable "Islamofacist"
options emerging to capture the imagination of the Muslim world, there couldn't be worse time for the great Satan -- the source of so much of Al Qaeda's legitimacy -- to go wobbly on the idea that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda had the stuff to pull off 9/11 solo -- or even it all.

So I would like to think these poll numbers are actually part of a concerted, bipartisan psych ops campaign the American people are waging against Osama and his Al Qaeda network.

Of course, thinking that would be as ridiculous as . . .
