Students Challenge Bush on Torture

….and the students elaborate:

Wow. How awesome is that? After reading this recent story from Newsweek that showed that…..

….Even today, more than four years into the war in Iraq, as many as four in 10 Americans (41 percent) still believe Saddam Hussein’s regime was directly involved in financing, planning or carrying out the terrorist attacks on 9/11, even though no evidence has surfaced to support a connection. A majority of Americans were similarly unable to pick Saudi Arabia in a multiple-choice question about the country where most of the 9/11 hijackers were born. Just 43 percent got it right—and a full 20 percent thought most came from Iraq.

(Unreal!)……i needed a pick me up. It’s great to see glimmers of hope, like this one from these thoughtful high schoolers, in the midst of such incredible disappointment, not only with the leadership of our current President and his administration, but with many fellow citizens who don’t seem to mind being led astray by false rationales for waging pre-emptive war.
