36% Believe in Federal 9-11 Conspiracy?!

According to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll, about one-third of Americans suspect federal officials were in on 9/11 beforehand. Here’s more.

When I read about this in the local paper today, I was disturbed. This adds to my chagrin:

The poll found that a majority of young adults give at least some credence to a 9/11 conspiracy . . .

Even if the numbers are high, if about 1/3 of the nation are nutcase idiots, that does not bode well for our future as a democratic republic.

UPDATE: I mentioned this item to a sensible, intelligent teenager at my church. He surprised me by saying he, too, was suspicious that federal officials were in on 9/11. God help us.
