Fact or Inference?

This CNN poll asks readers "Is Osama Bin Ladin still in Afghanistan?" I asked myself "How would they know?" Perhaps they should have asked "Do you HOPE Osama Bin Ladin is still in Afghanistan?" At least then, people might see it as a measure of opinion (and perhaps groundless) versus some kind of estimate of knowledge or intelligence.
