The results are saddening. Even Al Qaeda has admitted that OBL was killed then. These results just tell me that there are too many that would rather spin a topic as 'CONSPRACY" rathjer than accept the truth.

Forget Opinion Research or Nielsen


ATS can generate plenty of revenue to better service its members with the results for the 2012 Political Campaign and the affiliated parties
Post more surveys and approach the MSM
??

Just an idea

I'm sorry, do you speak this language? Did you translate the videos yourself? Do you have proof that the words ont hose videos are correct...or that that is actually Osama Bin Laden? Did you know of him before the pictures the USA government showed on the screen? I don't know many who can say yes, to any of those questions. Can you? Beyond a reasonable doubt?


How about MEDIA BIAS???

Here are a few KNOWN facts:


U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917: J.P. Morgan interests bought 25 of America's leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media. www.mindfully.org...

JP Morgan: Our next big media player? (April 13, 2010) JP Morgan controls 54 U.S. daily newspapers,and owns 31 television stations. www.newsandtech.com...

Media Conglomerates, Mergers, Concentration of Ownership: www.globalissues.org...


Who controls the media www.nowfoundation.org...

Interlocking Directorates
Media corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations, including banks, investment companies, oil companies, health care and pharmaceutical companies and technology companies. This list shows board interlocks for the following major media interests...


Derry Brownfield (may he R.I.P. he is sorely missed) Farm radio broadcaster removed for exposing Monsanto's ...

Another very obvious bit of propaganda was done shortly after the May 4 1970 Shootings at the Kent State riot. Right after that riot my Mom, several states away called in a panic wondering if I was alright. Seems there was nation wide coverage, WITH FILM FOOTAGE of a massive riot at my Big Ten University. The riot never took place. I was on campus from 7:00 am till 5:00 pm.

An interesting side note is I was the only one in my dorm that I know of who got a frantic call from a concerned Mom. The rest were instate students which seem to indicate there was a "News Blackout" for the state where the University was located!

You will note there is no mention of the RIOT THAT NEVER WAS in the University history, quite the opposite!


These years of the late 1960's and early 1970's also contained another situation that was not so pleasant - the unrest and riots on College campuses. This unrest on the Purdue campus was less severe than elsewhere. Even so the situation caused considerable tension at Alumni meetings throughout the State.

Purdue agriculture, its students and Alumni were a solid core or sanity throughout this period. Even so, Dean Kohls who attended many meetings throughout the state found it hard to explain campus happenings to outraged alumni. At one such meeting, those in attendance were demanding to know why administrators didn't "do something." This was the hometown of one of the widely publicized campus agitators. www.ag.purdue.edu...


Later we had a "sit-in" at the Admin. building It was about 25 students and lasted a few hours. Farm kids are a bit hard to spoon feed Communism to and the SDS was a really big flop on campus. I spent about an hour in discussion with "the widely publicized campus agitator" one evening just before he was to go on TV.

That and several other incidents where I was an eye witness has made me a skeptic of the Mass Media.




Now if the MSM could manufacture a riot out of whole cloth back in the spring of 1970 to justify the killing of students at Kent state, Why the heck can't you believe they just might be doing the same type of cover-up now??? It sure worked well back in 1970!

To the OP:

For the next survey, try breaking the time tables and the intended questions from one another. This can be misleading and someone may not believe in the time of May 1st but may believe that Osama died at that time.

Example: On the second question is states: OBL was killed by a US led assassination team on May 1st, but there are important and potentially damning aspects of the operations being kept from the pubic and other countries.

-The problem here is this:
1) What if I dont agree on the May 1st date/What if I do agree on the May 1st date
2) Important and potentially damning aspects of the operations are being kept from the public

Lets say, I believe he was not killed on May 1st, but I believe things are being held back from the public.

What do I choose? Strongly agree? agree? neutral? etc? Cause on one hand I agree about things being held back, but on the other I dont agree with the date so I should probably check neutral right?

Corrections for next time: PS: I LIKE the surveys

1) Break the questions into smaller topics such as:
-Do you think important and potentially damning aspects of the operations are being kept from the public?
-When do you think the operation took place? If you believe it did

2) Make the questions with specific answers and not agree, neutral, disagree.

Ex: When do you believe OBL was killed?
a) Before May 1st, 2011 b) On May 1st, 2011 c) OBL is still alive at this time d) None of the above

-I would use this method to get a better idea of when people think events occurred.

Hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you incorporate some of my advice into the next survey. Thanks.

Don't worry they will have a new "villain" soon enough for you to fear your rights away.


Correct they are working real hard on one right now. I posted this about four months ago BEFORE the next "manufactured" situation: Napolitano sets stage for False Flag Terrorist Attack


The very public "killing" of OSB of course plays right along with the rest. The timing is perfect since state National guard units along the Mexican border will all be with drawn in June and July of this year.


In the thread I outline how "Homeland Security" removed hundreds of border patrol agents from the Mexican Border, derailed the border fence authorized by Congress in 2006 and then cancels the Border Fence Project in January of this year. Ms. Napolitano justified to lawmakers a 30 percent budget reduction for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. (March 17, 2010) Finally in June and July of this year the last of the four border states are losing their National Guard troops who guard the border. Worse while Minuteman civilian patrols are keeping an eye out for illegal border crossers, the U.S. Border Patrol is keeping an eye out for Minutemen -- and telling the CORRUPT Mexican government where they are!

Looking at the WHOLE picture is what makes the whole situation stink to high heaven. Just like the failure of the interceptor jets made 9/11 stink.

If you have any doubts that the US government would allow its own people to be killed, here are the historical facts showing that they have done so before and in exactly the same way. Days of Infamy

This post really bugs me. Iran stones people to death but we should believe what they say about anything?


AHHhhh, but Why would Iran pass up such a juicy tidbit which they could use to whip up the Radical element for renewed terrorist attacks on the USA???

Perhaps they read my thread Napolitano sets stage for False Flag Terrorist Attack and are side stepping the trap???

I did point a brand new Arabic ATS Member to the thread and asked him to warn his people....

You know, 5000+ responses is a very large sample. I have seen medium size elections called after 5000 votes were cast.


Yes it is a very large sample size but it is a BIAS sample population as several others have said. I suggest you read:


How to Lie with Statistics

Just for interest, we looked at some ways to deceive using statistics. The little book, "How to Lie With Statistics" was written about 1954. You can still get it today! It may be 50 years old, but the funny business that Darrell Huff described in the 50's is still going on today. The book is just as useful now as it was in 1954. Everyone ought to read it.... www.physics.smu.edu...


AMAZON

That said, what I found very interesting was the number of visitors and how overwhelming the skepticism is.

Now compare that to the heated arguments that often seem to indicate the exact opposite!


Seems ATS has gained notice and is now subject to "re-brainwashing"


Seems even NASA has noticed us!

Over the years, there have been several reports indicating that Osama Bin Laden is dead.


On 12/26/2001, Fox News reported that “Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication.”

On 1/18/2002, President Pervez Musharraf says, “I think now, frankly, he is dead for the reason he is a … kidney patient.”

On 7/18/2002, the FBI’s counter-terroism chief Dale Watson says, “I am not really sure of the answer… I personally think he is probably not with us anymore but I have no evidence to support that.”

On 10/7/2002, President Hamid Karzai says that Bin Laden is probably dead.

On 10/16/2002, Israeli intelligence sources report that Osama is dead.

On 10/23/2005, a Multan newspaper reports that Osama Bin Laden, “died four months ago in a village near Kandahar of severe illness.”

On 3/15/2006, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports about a claim by then Rep. Curt Weldon that Osama Bin Laden died in Iran.

On 9/23/2006, it is reported that “a French regional newspaper quoted a French secret service report on Saturday as saying that Saudi Arabia is convinced that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden died of typhoid in Pakistan last month.” President Chirac said this was “in no way whatsoever confirmed.”

Recently, former CIA official Robert Baer said that he thinks Osama is dead.

On 6/30/2008, Time released an article entitled, “Is Osama bin Laden Dying … Again?”

Right, just the paranoid sheep who will believe anyone who rebels...

Actually I try to tell those who are rebelling like the Agitator in college, that we have a system set up for instituting change. Use that not violence.



Many people on this site think they know exactly what's going on in the world just because they question the "official" story. You deny the official story, but then you accept some crazy story with zero evidence instead. You deny ignorance on one level and openly accept it on another.

DUDE, I believe the EVIDENCE! I have been at ground zero actually taking part in the action so to speak on several ocassions and then read the "news story"

NOT ONCE have the actual facts been presented in the news story.



When's the last time you've questioned your own assumptions? Sought evidence to prove your SELF wrong. Considered the validity of those who don't agree with you? And the ultimate question; Are you laying your emotions aside when seeking the truth? because if you hate Obama, you're going to seek anything and everything that validates that emotion and vice versa. Be a scientist and not a rebel. Be objective and not emotionally invested.


DUDE, seeking evidence to solve problems is what I did for thirty years! I was so successful my company used to send me to other plants to solve the knotty problems the PhDs could not. (I have a BS and a cert in Quality) Going into a problem with bias just does not work and I am hard wired not to do that. That is why I am a scientist with a good Statistical background who loves to play with numbers.

No I do not "hate Obama" actually many of us were very hopeful he would correct the road that Bush had us headed down. No such luck. It has become obvious he is as much "owned" by the corporation cartels as Bush was.

Want a few facts??

Barack Obama reshuffled his staff. Go look up Gene Sperling, new head of the National Economic Council, William Daley as the new Chief of Staff, and General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt as the head of the newly created Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Look up their connections to the North American Free Trade Agreement, the World Trade Organization, the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act and China’s entry into the WTO.

Now tell me how three men who helped export millions of American jobs are the "right pick" to HELP the very economic disaster they were instrumental in creating FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT???

I do not have to "hate him" all I have to do is look at who he has as his staff and the bills he signed into law. I have read, researched and dissected more laws and treaties in the last six years than I ever did in the previous 55.

THAT research is what made me start to question my government, not some idiotic predisposition to rebel. I leave the "rebelling" to the young brainwashed idiots.

Hmmm, I find it interesting that you took my post personal, even though it was aimed at an audience which you're probably not a member of. Not only did you take it personal, you percieved that I was refering to a specific event. IE:


DUDE, I believe the EVIDENCE! I have been at ground zero actually taking part in the action so to speak on several ocassions and then read the "news story"


This quote is out of context with my comments. I was speaking generally, not specifically. You stated that a majority of the population at ATS isn't brainwashed sleepwalkers and I just don't agree. They may have a different perspective but they buy conspiricy stories without any evidence hook, line, and sinker. And then they tout it around as the truth with their fingers in their ears yelling "LA LA LA LA LA LA LA...".

Obviously, if you've done your research and have collected evidence, my post was not aimed at you! You are more than likely someone who I respect! So chill out man and good for you.

Although, you could just be some wacko on a conspiracy website...

Which Al Qaeda is that? do you mean the INTERNET source. I must admit it is one of the few times an internet source story is taken up as the ultimate truth by the MSM. Funny that, no one at MSM queried the truth or otherwise of the internet source. So who WAS Al Qaeda, (the CIA) and who is Al Qaeda today, (still the CIA?) MSM is 'studious' about querying internet sources, even the Wiki cables were debated as real, yet here we have a crappy internet page saying OBL has died, and everybody at MSM believes it unequivocally!

Okay on a conspiracy website of course the polls show those types of responses. If i was on a gay website and they had a poll on gay marriage I'm guessing most would agree to it as well.

*Bows humbly toward Skeptic OverLord and those worthy of respect*

A few words and one song please.

A poll is a poll is a poll...yet a poll devised by someone steeped in the history of conspiracy has a value that I cannot easily define yet believe it to ultimately be of more value then any "normal" poll...

Please keep up the good work, remain open to change yet do not change simply because a few zealots armed with atomic bombs of ad hom, cry and whine the loudest.

Deny the squeaky wheel!


and a song:



So don't you mind... people grinnin'... in your face
No! don't you mind... people grinnin'... in your face

The TRUTH shall set us free!!!

*OverMan get's the "happy feet"!!!*
