Thread: New Zogby Poll: Over 70 Million American Adults Support New 9/11 Investigation

    I should also add that I'm not much interested in seeing those responsible for the 9/11 attacks "held accountable," if it means the system they used to make it happen stays in place.

    I'd much rather that the political system which made the 9/11 attacks possible and probable didn't exist.

    It's not personalities I'm mainly against, it's the structure of the system I'm against. You can put in all the new faces you want and nothing will fundamentally change for the better if it means that the structure of rulership is still in place. The question isn't who should rule, but whether anyone should rule.

    Americans Ponder Truth in 9/11 Commission

    http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/inde...m/itemID/11974

    May 23, 2006

    (Angus Reid Global Scan) – Adults in the United States are divided over the findings of a group assembled specifically to investigate the country’s deadliest terrorist attack, according to a poll by Zogby International. 47.8 per cent of respondents trust in the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission, while 42.3 per cent suggest a cover-up.

    Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked and crashed four airplanes in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001, killing nearly 3,000 people. In July 2004, the federal commission that investigated the events of 9/11 concluded that "none of the measures adopted by the U.S. government from 1998 to 2001 disturbed or even delayed the progress of the al-Qaeda plot" and pointed out government failures of "imagination, policy, capabilities, and management."

    Last September, U.S. president George W. Bush paid tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks, declaring, "One way our nation can honour their sacrifice is to win the war on terror. On September the 11th, 2001, we saw the future that terrorists intend for us. And I made a decision: America will not wait to be attacked again. We will take the fight to the enemy, and we’ll defend our freedom."

    In June 2004, the 9/11 Commission stated that there had been "no collaborative relationship" between the deposed Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda in the planning and carrying out of the attacks. 44.4 per cent of respondents believe the Bush administration acted correctly in attacking Iraq because Hussein supported terrorism, while 44.3 per cent think the federal government exploited the 9/11 attacks to justify the invasion of Iraq.

    Polling Data
    Some people believe that the U.S. government and its 9/11 Commission concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks, saying there has been a cover-up. Others say that the 9/11 Commission was a bipartisan group of honest and well-respected people and that there is no reason they would want to cover-up anything. Who are you more likely to agree with?

    U.S. and Commission not covering up: 47.8%
    U.S. and Commission covering up: 42.3%
    Neither / Not sure: 9.9%

    Some people have said that the Bush administration exploited the September 11th attacks to justify the invasion of Iraq. Others say that Bush acted correctly by going into Iraq because Saddam Hussein supported terrorism. Who are you more likely to agree with?

    Bush exploited 9/11: 44.3%
    Bush acted correctly: 44.4%
    Neither / Not sure: 11.3%

    Methodology: Telephone interviews with 1,200 American adults, conducted from May 12 to May 16, 2006. Margin of error is 2.9 per cent.

    Less than half of Americans satisfied with 9/11 investigations

    http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/Le...fied_0523.html

    Published: Tuesday May 23, 2006

    According to a new Zogby poll, less than half of Americans are convinced that that the events of September 11 have been thoroughly investigated, RAW STORY has learned.

    In the telephone survey of 1200 individuals, just 47% agreed that "the 9/11 attacks were thoroughly investigated and that any speculation about US government involvement is nonsense." Almost as many, 45%, indicated they were more likely to agree "that so many unanswered questions about 9/11 remain that Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success."

    The poll is the first survey that has attempted to gauge the level of Americans' doubts about 9/11 and was carried out for the "9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future" conference to be held in Chicago in June.

    Not surprisingly, Republicans as a group were the most supportive of existing investigations, with 70% expressing their satisfaction -- about the same percentage that has expressed approval of Bush's performance in recent polls. Sixty-four percent of those earning over $75,000 were also skeptical of doubts about 9/11. The groups most likely to want the attacks re-investigated were Hispanics at 67% and African-Americans at 64%.

    Other groups also skewed one way or another, but with the majority position generally not above 58%. Overall, the breakdown on the question closely followed the usual political divisions in the country: Republicans vs. Democrats and independents, whites vs. minorities, the wealthier and better-educated vs. the poorer and less educated, people over fifty vs. those under fifty, men vs. women.

    This rough balance in opinions is itself a striking finding. It suggests that doubts about the officials accounts of 9/11, far from representing an extreme fringe position, have become a standard component of anti-establishment attitudes.

    When asked specificially if they thought there had been a government coverup of evidence that contradicts the official story, the results were again not far from an even split, with 48% rejecting the idea of a deliberate coverup and 42% supporting it. Belief in a coverup was the majority position among Democrats, 18-29 year olds, and a few other groups.

    In an attempt to focus more specifically on the attitudes of those who were best informed about the events of 9/11, the poll asked its responders if they were aware of WTC Building 7, whose collapse on September 11 for no obvious reason was not investigated by the 9/11 Commission. Only 52% answered that they were aware of the collapse of Building 7, but out of that subgroup, 73% believed it should have been investigated.

    On a related topic, those polled were asked if they felt the Bush Administration had exploited the September 11th attacks to justify the invasion of Iraq or if Bush had been right to go into Iraq because Saddam Hussein supported terrorism. Here the country was divided exactly, 44% to 44%, with the answers following party lines more closely than those to the 9/11 questions. Among Republicans, 72% felt the invasion was appropriate, while among Democrats 69% felt it was not.

    A final question asked about the media's performance regarding 9/11, including coverage of victims' families, unanswered questions, theories that challenged the official account, and how the attacks were investigated. A majority of 55% rated the media as only fair or poor, while only 33% rated it as good.

    Surprisingly, the groups most likely to rate the media positively tended to be those that were also most skeptical about official accounts of 9/11, including African-Americans, progressives, and those with lower incomes. The media were rated poorly by roughly 60% of Republicans, conservatives, and the more affluent and better educated. Libertarians and extreme conservatives, at 74% and 67% respectively, were the most negative of all.

    Yea, I thought so to. I also wrote this email to msnbc:


    Hello!

    I was wondering where the story could be found that nearly half of all Americans believe there was a 9/11 coverup? A recently released Zogby poll provides more info, and the story can also be found on a much smaller news outlet here:

    http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/Le...fied_0523.html

    Cheers, and looking forward to reading complete coverage!


    Not that I expect much, but if people keep writing in, then maybe.

    Hey man... you did your part.

    People who "lurk" on this site... I have a question for you... is this poll "newsworthy"?

    If your answer is yes, then why isn't the media covering it?

    From dz...

    "Just got word that the Zogby poll results will not be posted on zogby's site as 911truth could not afford the cost for them to post it on their site, so the official results posted on 911truth.org are the final results from zogby, and wont be published on their site.

    takes money to do those things, and apparently the extra price for that was too exhorbatant for them to afford - sorry for the confusion."
