Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment

67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating the anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7

Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 - As America nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush's and Vice President Cheney's actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.

The–sponsored poll also found that over two-thirds of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.

WTC 7 housed the mayor's emergency bunker and offices of the SEC, IRS, CIA and Secret Service and was not hit by any planes but still completely collapsed into its own footprint nearly eight hours after the Twin Tower attacks. FEMA did not explain this collapse, the 911 Commission ignored it, and the promised official study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now 2 years overdue.

This is a good thing by itself, for the knowledge that there are large numbers of skeptical people. I sometimes lapse into thinking this is a nation of zombies and very much appreciate finding out I'm wrong. The poll findings make for good starting points in pushing for a better investigation.
It was a shocking event and like all shocking events -- bereavement, loss, whatever... it'll take time for people to admit and process it. Some diehards will refuse such admission no matter what.

I've a sense there's a tipping point, and the realization will be a least I hope it will be and that all those complicit will be swamped by by the righteous anger generated.

My fear is that the awakening is foreseen and is buried beneath more ghastly crimes.

These people are capable of anything.

"the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off"

Brother Marek said that.

Why, oh why, didn't I take the blue pill?
Thanks for covering my back, Bruce. I was busy commenting in the main section of my post because, as usual, I have too much to say. You'd really get on with Hugh...believe me. A true hooligan of the best sort. And he's getting us to blog as we did all those years ago.

Over at AtlanticFreePress, Hirschhorn writes: "Pull one string and the whole 9/11 story unravels as your imagination triggers unending questions. Can Americans support a reinvestigation and rethinking of the 9/11 event? Or would they rather avoid even more pain and preserve the official account that places all blame on Al-Qaeda?"

Paul Krugman didn't entitle his last book 'The Great Unraveling' for nothing. The all-too-apparent truth of 911 can upend these bastards -- on both sides of their artificial divide -- and is well worth gunning for.
Oh, you poor conspiracy theorists, you. There was no conspiracy; just two families trying to make money, and what better way than to have their sons 'pretend' to start a war, when in fact it's just really a business deal amongst old friends. An especially profitable business deal since there are no costs on the balance sheet (all is profit); they get others (the US tax payer/government and idiot fundalmentalists) to commit their lives and resources - the families don't have to spend a dime, nor sacrifice any of their friends and family.

If you want to understand what has happened, all you have to do is follow the money. Of course, since neither family wants the deal, and the resulting profits, out in public, they've had to be creative in extracting the profits - say, send $15 billion in cash, in $100k currency blocks, on USAF planes to the middle of a war zone and lose it.

So, no conspiracy here, just a return to the kind of family values that the Medicis', the Plantagenets and Tuders exemplified. Face it, 'it's good to be the king'.

Now, be good subjects and go out and buy something.
the Bush crime family plus the Bin Laden crime family, what an unbeatable partnership. What synergies. What an enterprise-level solution. Not final solutoin. Ongoing, the long war. Time to dispense with sentimental hogwash about peace and prosperity. That messes with the production line, messes with the monopoly. But war, ah, we can own that market. And the best part? If there's every serious compeition, you just kill them. Ask Martin and Bobby. Ask Wellstone.
