Opinion split over 9/11 report
Good, unbiased article, this is what we're after, let the facts speak for themselves.
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 media is not covering that 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.
