31% of under-30 Germans believe US could have caused 9/11

CNN.com - German disbelief over 9/11 - Jul. 24, 2003

Interesting article in the NY Times on poll in Die Welt.

Asked whether they believed the U.S. government could have ordered the September 11 attacks, 31 percent of those surveyed under the age of 30 answered "yes,'' while 19 percent overall gave the same answer.

I would really, really like to believe that the government is capable of doing this. Even I'm not that bitter and callous, and I practice bitterness and callousness every day. But if the same thing had happened to another country, and with the same actions afterwards, wouldn't we say the same thing about the other government?
