About six in 10 Iraqis say they approve of attacks on US-led forces and slightly more than that want their government to ask US troops to leave within a year, according to a poll in that country. The views expressed by the Iraqi public in the early September poll of 1,150 were at odds with the views of the Bush administration and Iraqi officials. The poll done for University of Maryland's Program on International Policy Attitudes also found that almost four in five Iraqis say the US military force in Iraq provokes more violence than it prevents, and that there is an overwhelmingly negative opinion of terror kingpin Osama bin Laden.
