    (Gold9472: This made the front page... AGAIN!!!)

    NORRISTOWN - More than 40 percent of Americans believe that the 9/11 Commission Report that investigated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks is a cover-up, according to a recent poll. And nearly half surveyed said the attacks should be reinvestigated.

    In May, a Zogby International poll of adults found that 42 percent of adults polled believe the U.S. government and the 9/11 Commission "concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence" that contradicts the official explanation of the attacks.

    However, 48 percent polled believe there is no reason the 9/11 Commission would want to cover up information surrounding the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 at the World Trade Center towers, Pentagon and in Somerset County, Pa.

    The Zogby poll was sponsored by a leading activist group, 911 Truth.org, which is highly skeptical of the official report published in July 2004. About one in ten respondents were "not sure" about the report's veracity.

    Zogby chose a random sample of 1,200 adults nationwide for the Sept. 11 poll. The survey asked about 81 questions.

    While 45 percent surveyed want a new probe into the devastating attacks, 47 percent were satisfied the Sept. 11 terrorism was thoroughly investigated.

    Those in the 911 Truth Movement believe the poll findings bear out their suspicions that government officials conspired to cover up what really happened on Sept. 11.

    "With half the country believing as we do, (the poll) is some form of vindication," said Jonathan Gold, a former member of 911 Truth's steering committee.

    Gold, who lives in Plymouth Meeting, complained that major media has ignored the truth movement.

    "The media is not covering the fact that 45 percent of voting Americans believe we should have another investigation," he said. "It deserves attention."

    Though family members of victims of the attacks submitted about 400 questions to the 9/11 Commission, Gold said, only about a dozen were answered by the inquiry.

    Poll respondents were equally divided - 44 percent - over whether the Bush administration exploited the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext for invading Iraq or used the terrorism to legitimately justify war.

    According to Zogby International, the polling company does not interpret survey results or advocate a particular point of view on behalf of its clients.

    GDHST just brought up a good point to me in PM...

    "Congratulations on making the paper again.... on a Sunday on an American holiday weekend that remembers those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.... wonder how your article will sit with veterans???"

    I hope they're able to view it with an open mind. I support our troops as much as anyone if not more. I have openly defended them on several occassions, and believe they should be brought home immediately. They are fighting, and dying for a lie, and that is unacceptable.

    I just sent a letter to Dr. Griffin...

    Subject: It Made The Front Page Again Dr. Griffin!!!

    http://www.timesherald.com/site/news...id=33380&rfi=6

    The title of this paper is, "The Times Herald - Montgomery County's Newspaper".

    Last week, I did some checking. The population in Montgomery County PA is upwards of 750,000 people. This paper also reaches parts of Philadelphia, and up to Harrisburg, PA. As you can see, they also post their stories online, and it shows up in Google News Searches.

    It definitely gets around... give yourself a huge pat on the back.

    Jon


    His response... which made my day...

    Jon,

    Congratulations to YOU—-I had nothing to do with this development. And as I see it, the major pay-off thus far for our earlier time with Keith was his willingness to write this story. This will probably give much more visibility to the Zogby poll than it would otherwise have gotten.
