I'm not sure these guys qualify to ask the questions

So Newsweek magazine has the results of a phone survey that people took over this last week. They have published the results here with (and this is the important part) the "correct" answers in bold.

See, right there, CORRECT ANSWER IS IN BOLD. So what are the "correct" answers to some of the questions?

It may be tough to tell from my screen shots but the "correct answer" to the question:

From what you know about the situation, do you think the United States is losing the fight against al-Qaeda or radical Islamic terrorism?

Is "NO"

and the "correct" answer to the question:

Do you think Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq was directly involved in planning, financing, or carrying out the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001?


and finally:

The correct answer is "DID IT EVER END"

Yeah, cause who would know the answer to that?
