Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Last week, the results of a nation-wide Zogby Poll with questions about 9/11 were reported in a press release from, which sponsored the poll ( It reported that only 48 percent of the public were confident that the truth about 9/11 had not been covered up. This is quite remarkable, given the fact that 99.9 percent of the coverage in the mainstream press has presupposed the truth of the official story.

There was no certainty, however, that this poll would be reported by the mainstream press, because it had not reported on a Zogby Poll in 2004 that showed that 49 percent of the residents of NYC believed that the government had had foreknowledge of the attacks but had consciously failed to take action to prevent them.

It is of some significance, therefore, that a story has now appeared, on the front page at that, in the Times Herald (the newspaper of Pennsylvania’s Montgomery County). It is pasted below.

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.
