It is not the norm for polls to be held on ATS. At one time the ability to create a poll was an integrated function, but I understand that as a result
of chronic overuse, the function was removed. In fact, I think at one stage the number of polls outweighed the normal posts.
However, I feel
that the events on that fateful day of September 11th, 2001 constitute the greatest conspiracy of our time, or at the very least, the greatest
of conspiracy theories in our time. ATS is very clearly - and sometimes heatedly - divided on the issue. Combine this division with my
insatiable curiosity and you have the impetus for...this poll.
Dr. David Ray Griffin outlined the four main interpretations
or modes of thinking in
regards to the events of 9-11. I would like to use [three of] those as the criteria for this poll.
Here are the interpretations:
A. Accept the Official Story:
For those who accept the official interpretation, 9/11 was a surprise attack on the US government and its people
by Islamic terrorists.
B. Bush Admin. had Prior Knowledge:
For a second group, the term “9-11” connotes an event with a more sinister dimension. These people
believe that the Bush administration knew the attacks were coming and intentionally let them happen.
C. Inside Job:
According to a third view of 9/11, the attacks were not merely foreknown by the Bush administration; they were orchestrated by
So please reply with which version of the events you believe to be true. I will update the poll graphic and statistics periodically. While you should
feel free to add a comment with your vote, I also humbly request that we keep this thread free from debates on the issue itself and thereby attempt to
avoid an atmosphere where members feel intimidated for their vote.
