Poll: What Happened on 9/11?

It is probably fair to say that most people have suspended judgement on the events of 9/11/2001 to at least some degree; however, it is probably also true that most people have made some judgements about what seems most likely scenario.

That judgement is what this poll hopes to measure.

Americans Review Bush Knowledge of 9/11

May 8, 2007

(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Most people in the United States are certain that their president was not aware the country would be attacked by a terrorist organization in 2001, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. 55 per cent of respondents think George W. Bush did not know about the 9/11 attacks in advance, while 22 per cent believe he did.

Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked and crashed four airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001, killing nearly 3,000 people. The 9/11 Commission and a joint congressional inquiry into the attacks described in their report—released on Jul. 22, 2004—how the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had received vague warnings of potential attacks throughout 2001. The document states that, as the year began, the CIA started getting "frequent but fragmentary" threat reports. Among other warnings, the intelligence community sent out a March 2001 terror threat advisory about a heightened threat of Sunni extremist attacks against U.S. facilities, personnel and other interests.
