In 2006, MSNBC asked this question:


Do you believe any of the conspiracy theories suggesting the U.S. government was somehow involved in 9/11? * 96444 responses

Yes. The government has left many questions unanswered about that day. 67%

No. These theories are absurd and disrespectful -- especially to those who lost their lives on 9/11. 27%

I'm not sure. 5.4%

www.msnbc.msn.com...

What do you think the figures would be today?

And if 67% thought 9/11 was an inside job in 2006, why do you think nothing has been done in the three years since that poll was taken?

The answer and the question do not correlate. Saying there are many unanswered questions is not the same as saying there was collusion.

I wonder why the wording is done in such a way?

The question was simple and straightforward -- "Do you believe any of the conspiracy theories suggesting the U.S. government was somehow involved in 9/11?" 67% said yes for a variety of reasons -- not just because the government left many unanswered questions.

Just like 27% said no, but not all of them believe these theories are absurd and disrespectful.

What's really absurd and disrespectful is the official story.

I understand the question, but they didn't give a simple yes or no choice.

The answer of yes says you believe there are unanswered questions. That does not mean you specifically think the government was involved.

I'd like to see a simple yes or no, without the qualifier.

You're not giving people enough credit. No one is going to accuse the government of complicity in 9/11 just because of unanswered questions. But I agree the question would have been better without a qualifier. MSNBC does that with all their polls.

Yes it allows a cop out on msnbc's part. A good way to skirt the issue.

I'd say most of us believe there needs to be more answers. Whether through conspiracy, complacency, or just pure ineptitude some how the government must answer.

Why would something get done? Maybe you havent noticed, but there is nobody representing the people anymore.

Oh, I've noticed all right. With one exception -- Ron Paul.

Anyway, you're right -- dumb question. Kinda like asking why nothing was done after constituents flooded legislators with calls that ran 99% against the Bankster Bailout.

89 percent of Americans believe Oswald did not act alone.

And I believe that a slow motion coup de etat was commenced that day in November, 1963.

Saying there are many unanswered questions is to say the investigation is incomplete.

You know what I think would be interesting. If we go around in our neighborhoods and ask about 100 or so people if they believe that there are many inconsistencies with the 9/11 investigation and that the Commission Report omitted and left many questions unanswered. I think this way we can figure out the real percentage of people who question the events of that day. What do you all think?
