Poll fun  
There's a collection of disturbing poll results here. Personally, the most disturbing one was from a Knight Ridder poll from this January:
"As far as you know, how many of the September 11th terrorist hijackers were Iraqi citizens: most of them, some of them, just one, or none?"
Most of them21
Some of them23
Just one6
Don't know33
In other words, 50% Americans "know" that one or more of the hijackers were Iraqi citizens.

What I found interesting was in the first series of polls, where support for war with Iraq was shrinking, and fewer people were undecided.

I don't think any of them we're Iraqi.

There was one Egyptian, a few Saudis, a Yemenese and a Lebonese (I think), and the rest were Afghani.

I'm not looking anything up at the moment. How close am I?

Pretty close, except for the Afghanis
AA Flight 77: All five Saudi Arabian
AA Flight 11: 4 Saudi Arabian, 1 Egyptian
UA Flight 175: 3 Saudi Arabian, 2 from United Arab Republic
UA Flight 93: 3 Saudi Arabian, 1 Lebanese


So, out of 19, we have:
15 from Suadi Arabia
2 from the United Arab Republic
1 from Lebanon
1 from Egypt
