9/11: Zogby Poll say 42% of Americans believe in Cover Up

A new poll released by Zogby International about 9-11 states that 42% of Americans believe there is a coverup by the United States government and the 9-11 commission about what happend on 9-11. Another 10% were unsure while about half of Americans (48%) believe that the US government and 9-11 commission was accurate.

The poll continues by looking at the collapse of building 7 of the World Trade Centre complex. 43% of Americans said they were unaware about the collapse of building 7. 38% of Americans say they knew about it and thought it should be investigated in comparison to 14% who knew, but did not think it needed investigating because, it was not hit by an airplane.

The poll also looks at the percentage of people who think that 9-11 should or should not be reinvestigated. 47% said the attacks were thouroughly investigated, 45% thought they should be reinvestigated and, 8% did not know. The question of how well the media portrayed 9-11 after the attacks. 55% of Americans rated the media coverage negatively, while 43% rated it positively. This poll shows the issue of 9-11 is still in people's minds and there is still a significant about of dissention about what happend.

Sounds about right. How anyone could trust the Bush administration to truthfully fill the American (as well as the world) people in on what really went down that day must be drinking the same Kool-Aid the Repugs are!

Well I wouldn't say that it's just the fault of the republicans its also the democrats. There have been Reps who have spoken out against what happend notably Ron Paul (R-Tx) and Cynthia Mckinney (D-Mass).

I agree fully, Jade! The Democrats are at fault, as well. It's unfortanate that there is no party to fully represent the many Americans who disagree with both the Democrats & the Republicans.

Yeah when Cindy Sheehan was up here she talked about you had a single party system in the United States "The War Party." She was interesting to talk to. Plus she gave really good hugs.

What I suggest is being non-partisan and supporting individuals based on their own genuineness.
