US still awaits 9/11 answers


US still awaits 9/11 answers

Fri, 07 Sep 2007 01:32:47

A new poll finds a majority of Americans still await an inquiry into the president's and vice president's actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks.

Over 30% also believe Presdient Bush and/or Vice President Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives. 67% also fault the 9/11 Commission for not investigating the technical aspects of the collapse of the World Trade Center.

The poll was conducted by Zogby International via telephone of adults across the US from August 23 to August 27, 2007.

Zogby International has been tracking public opinion since 1984 in North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.


I didn't know about the new

Zogby poll. So we are going to hear from some Iranian press about what is going on inside US? Think about it!

Well ...

The news about what's going on in the US that we get from the Iranian press often turns out to be more accurate than the stories we get from the American press.

Think about THAT!


but all too true

A clever way of avoiding a mention of WTC 7

"67% also fault the 9/11 Commission for not investigating the technical aspects of the collapse of the World Trade Center"

This is likely to make the reader think "Well, the commission was not a technical body, so why should they have investigated the technical details of the Twin Towers' collapse"?

Hate to say it

but I don't believe this poll at all, it is decent if you are in the or anti-war crowd. Just mirrors what we see from every other poll.
However I refuse to accept that people believing that 9/11 is an inside job have GONE DOWN the past 2 years.
That is just plain BS.

Where was this poll taken? (as in where were these paltry 1006 calls made to)

I know about 70-80 people right now that I have contact with, be they friends, family, wife's co-workers, etc. out of that number I can safely say that about 70% of them believe 9/11 was an inside job.
When I see online polls asking this question it is almost always in the high 80% range.
When I started mentioning that I thought the Bush administration was responsible for 9/11 back in early 02' I was shouted down and banned from every site I visited, same in 03', it got a bit better in 04'
but now I can go on just about any site and state these views and get full agreement from at least 50% of respondents.

So I am supposed to believe that those that think it is MIHOP are under 5%? No phucking way in hell.

Partial agreement

I agree with your point about MIHOP figures being so low that they're hard to believe. But I also found the 30% figure for impeachment to be surprisingly (and, in my opinion, disappointingly) low, so I don't think the poll would actually bring much cheer to proponents of impeachment as you imply.

Another point

Note that the wording of the question about building 7 actually conveys information to poll participants--that they might otherwise not be aware of--regarding a deficiency in the 9/11 Commission report, and the result for that question is favorable to a 9/11 truth position.

Now imagine a whole series of questions, each one of which alerts the poll participant to a different omission/distortion in the comission report. In that case, then I bet the results for the question on whether or not the events had already been 'thorougly investigated' would have been quite a bit more negative than the results shown here.

Another example of "truth-positive" wording

Perhaps the following question produced so good results largely because the respondents read about a NYT/CBS poll according to which "only 16 percent believe they have been told the whole truth..." and felt they didn't want to belong to a small and uncritical minority:

In October 2006, a New York Times/CBS poll found that only 16% of Americans believe they have been told the whole truth about this administration's foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks. Based upon your knowledge of 9/11 events, do you agree or disagree that the Congress should investigate the executive branch's conduct prior to, during and following the September 11 attacks?"

I'd say that was a fairly clever formulation.

What about 15 or so activists calling numbers randomly in the USA and making a simple "control" poll with shorter (and not too leading) questions? If one person calls, say, 30 people, almost half of the number interviewed by Zogby would be covered.

I think just 2 simple and right to the point

questions is all the need be ask.

1. Did the Bush administration plan & execute the attack of 9/11? Yes or No

2. Did the Bush administration "allow" the attack to happen to further political agenda? Yes or No

as a 9/11 truth poll that is all I could care about, its short & sweet and right to the point and would take all of 15 seconds.
There is also no way to misconstrue the meaning.

Personally I think the only way to get a reasonable idea of what "America" thinks is to call at least 10 people in every county of every state in the country there are 3,141 counties so a little over 31,000 people with a small sampling from all over the country and you would get a decent idea of reality.

Calling 1006 from who the hell knows where (probably all in Nebraska & Utah) is worthless and totally bias towards those few areas.

If they only called 18-30 year old black men and women in NYC then the poll would have been about 70% positive for inside job.

Too monolithic a formulation

"1. Did the Bush administration plan & execute the attack of 9/11? Yes or No

2. Did the Bush administration "allow" the attack to happen to further political agenda? Yes or No"

I'd reformulate that as something like "Did some elements within..." I don't think planning for 9/11 started during the Bush administration, but much earlier. A bit longer than half a year is not enough for planning and executing something on the scale of 9/11.

How To Make Myths Go Away Faster

Results of academic studies in psychology might assist us in spreading the truth about 9/11. Unfortunately such studies are often reported only in mainstream publications and we need to un-spin the reports before we can use them.

I've just finished a long article about this for my blog, and some of the results I've run into have been surprising -- in a constructive way.

If you're looking for suggestions about how to help the truth to spread even faster than it's already spreading, you might want to read this:
