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 911Truth.org, which sponsored the poll (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/5/prweb388743.htm). 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.
Opinion split over 9/11 report
By: KEITH PHUCAS, Times Herald Staff
NORRISTOWN – 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.
