 Altho the Bush administration continues to exploit September 11........., a new Zogby poll reveals that less than half of the American 
public trusts the official 9/11 story or believes the attacks were
adequately investigated.

The poll is the first scientific survey of Americans' belief in a
9/11 cover up or the need to investigate possible US government
complicity, and was commissioned to inform deliberations at the June 2~4 "9/11:  Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future" conference in Chicago.

Poll results indicate 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up 
(with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International
Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US
government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure).

According to Janice Matthews, executive director of 911truth.org, "To
those of us who have followed the mounting evidence for US government involvement in 9/11, these results are both heartening and frankly quite amazing, given the mainstream media's ongoing refusal to cover the most critical questions of that day. Our August 2004 Zogby poll of New Yorkers showed nearly half believe certain U.S. officials
'consciously' allowed the attacks to happen and 66% want a fresh 
investigation, but these were people closest to the tragedy and most 
familiar with facts refuting the official account. This revelation  that so many millions nationwide now also recognize a 9/11 cover up and the need for a new inquiry should be a wake up call for all 2006 political candidates hoping to turn this country around. We think it
also indicates Americans are awakening to the larger pattern of
deceit  that led us into Constitutional twilight and endless war, and that our independent media may have finally come of age."

Poll co-author W. David Kubiak concurs, saying "Despite years of 
relentless media promotion, whitewash and 9/11 Commission propaganda,  the official 9/11 story still can't even muster 50% popular support.  Since this myth has been the administration's primary source of political and war-making power, this level of distrust has revolutionary implications for everyone working for peace, justice and civil liberties. If we ever hope to reclaim this country, end aggression and restore international respect, we all must finally scrutinize that day when things started to go so terribly wrong. The media and movement leaders ignore this call at their peril, because tens of millions are clearly telling us here they are ready for 9/11 truth."

SCOPE: The poll covered five related areas:

1) Iraq - do Americans think the Bush administration exploited 9/11 to attack Iraq? (44% do, 44% don't);

2) Cover up - did the government and its 9/11 Commission conceal or refuse to investigate evidence that contradicts their
official story? (only 48% said no);

3) The collapse of WTC 7, which was not even mentioned by the 9/11 Commission and has seldom been reported in the media -were respondents aware of this collapse and, if 
so, did they think it should be investigated (only 52% knew about it, but over 70% of this group believe it should have been investigated);

4) new investigation of official complicity - do respondents think we need one? (only 48% said no); and

5) mass media - how do people rate its performance, including its coverage of alternative 9/11 theories, unanswered questions and inquiry issues? (43% rate it positively, 55%
negatively).

(Poll sponsors see knowledge of the collapse of World Trade Center
Building 7 as a bellwether issue, because if people do not know this
elementary fact, they have probably not been exposed to any independent 9/11 research at all. Since only 52% of respondents had  ever heard of this collapse and 45% support a reinvestigation, it may
be reasonably inferred that a public fully informed of all the unreported 9/11 facts might support a new investigation by a margin of
80% or more.)

SPONSOR: 911truth.org is a coalition of researchers, journalists and
victim family members working to expose and answer the hundreds of
still unresolved questions concerning 9/11, especially the nearly 400 
questions that the Family Steering Committee filed with the 9/11
Commission
. Initially welcomed by the commissioners as their "road
map", these queries cut to the heart of 9/11 crimes and accountability, specifically raising the central issues of motive, means and cui bono (who profited?). The Commission ultimately ignored 80% of these issues, however, opting only to explore system failures, miscommunications and incompetence. The victim families' most incisive
questions remain unaddressed to this day.

GOOD WORK, ACTIVISTS!   KEEP IT UP!   WE'VE GOT 'EM ON THE RUN!!!!!

THIS IS AMAZING -- WHEN YOU CONSIDER HOW LITTLE THE MEDIA HAVE COVERED THIS GIGANTIC GRASS-ROOTS MOVEMENT!  NEVER THINK THAT YOU ARE ALL ALONE!  THE MEDIA CAN'T SQUASH US BY MERELY IGNORING US!!!
