With the Bush administration holding consultations on the future of the US-appointed Iraqi Governing Council, recent analyses of the poll data, which were gathered three months ago, highlight the roots within Baghdad's populace of many of the concerns the US-led coalition now faces. Only 5 percent of those polled said they believed the United States invaded Iraq "to assist the Iraqi people," and only 1 percent believed it was to establish democracy there. -- WASHINGTON POST _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
