Iraq : MOD poll ' 65 percent feel attacks on troops justified'

LONDON (Reuters) - Sixty-five percent of Iraqis believe attacks on U.S. and British troops are justified, according to a secret poll said to have been commissioned by British defence leaders and cited by The Sunday Telegraph.

Less than 1 percent of those polled believed that the forces were responsible for any improvement in security, according to poll figures.

Eighty-two percent of those polled said they were "strongly opposed" to the presence of the troops.

The paper said the poll, conducted in August by an Iraqi university research team, was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence.

there is no secrets anymore... especially if it may be damaging to Bush. There are too many Beuro-boobs in the governement that are irritated in his cut-backs, re-orginizations, and croneyism.

They were placed there before by the previous administration, and now find anything the can to "leak" out if it hurts Bush.

I'm sure some of the same things are happening in the UK

I am not sure about the MOD but MI5 and MI6 have been vocal in their lack of respect for blairs actions

when your own intelligence agency is gunning for you then your in the shit deep

Look at how many 'top secret' british documents have been leaked to the press
