The Truth About Ahmadinejad’s UN Speech And Call For 9/11 Investigation

2

One of the top stories on the internet right now is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s September 23rd speech at the UN.

The corporate media coverage of the speech only serves to exemplify why 3 out of 4 Americans simply do not trust the corporate media. Note the term corporate media because in my opinion most mass media outlets simply do not represent or report accurate news representative of mainstream Americans. To the contrary way too many reports are corporate press releases or government propaganda with little or no fact checking even when many Americans know the stories are lies.

3 out 4 Americans Don’t Trust The Corporate Media

Before I continue on let me back up the statements I have just made about Americans not trusting the corporate media by pointing out a recent Gallup Poll. Gallup reports that a only a shocking 1 in 4 Americans trust the corporate media. Even that number is highly skewed by because 1 in 2 Americans in the under 30 demograph still naively believe what the media spoon feeds them.

In U.S., Confidence in Newspapers, TV News Remains a Rarity

No more than 25% say they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in either

by Lymari Morales

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans continue to express near-record-low confidence in newspapers and television news — with no more than 25% of Americans saying they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in either. These views have hardly budged since falling more than 10 percentage points from 2003-2007.

The decline in trust since 2003 is also evident in a 2009 Gallup poll that asked about confidence and trust in the “mass media” more broadly. While perceptions of media bias present a viable hypothesis, Americans have not over the same period grown any more likely to say the news media are too conservative or too liberal.

While it is unclear how much respondents factored in the online and cable offshoots of “newspapers” and “television news” when assessing their confidence in these institutions, their responses do not provide much encouragement for the media more broadly. Confidence is hard to find, even among Democrats and liberals, who have historically been the most trusting of the news media. While 18- to 29-year-olds express more trust in newspapers than most older Americans, Gallup polling has found they read national newspapers the least. Younger Americans also expressed more confidence than older Americans in several other institutions tested, including Congress, the medical system, and the criminal justice system, suggesting younger Americans are more confident in institutions in general.

Coverage Of Amadinejad’s UN Speech Shows Why Americans Don’t Trust  Corporate Media

The corporate media’s reporting on Mahmoud’s September 23rd, 2010 speech at the UN exemplifies why trust in corporate media has disappeared in 75% of Americans. Here are some of the headlines the the corporate media has published about the speech which as I will point out later are full of lies and deception designed to beat the “Bomb Iran” war drum. These are the same kind of lies reported by the Government and the corporate media about the BP Gulf Oil Spill.

The New York Daily News reports:

 

Downright disgraceful: Iranian spews anti-Semitic swill as craven UN hears him out

The true shame that occurred yesterday at the United Nations was not that Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad spun lunatic and anti-Semitic theories about 9/11. The true shame was that the world at large did not rise up to protest his ravings.

The United Nations General Assembly has 192 members. Representatives of most of them listened with polite and reprehensible respect to this year’s version of Ahamdinejad’s annual freak show.

There is no question that the nuclear madman wanted to provoke. There was no other reason to bring up the cataclysmic events of nine years ago – and to do so in the guise of professorial musings on the plausibility of what he despicably said were prevalent thoughts on who was behind the attack and why.

The heart of his thinking was behind Door No. 2. He said:

“Second: that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime.

“The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view.”

This, of course, makes perfect sense in Ahmadinejad’s hateful world.

There Israel and the Jews are the root and cause of all evil.

So, obviously, an attack by Islamist radicals that turned the civilized order against his brand of hate-the-West, hate-the-Jew fundamentalism had to have sprung from a plot hatched by America and the Jews.

Obama Calls Ahmadinejad’s Sept. 11 Remarks ‘Hateful’

Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama called Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s remarks at the United Nations yesterday “offensive” and “hateful.”

In his first comments on the Iranian leader’s statement that the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks may have been orchestrated to bolster the U.S. economy and “save the Zionist regime,” Obama told BBC Persian that “for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable.”

“It was offensive, it was hateful,” Obama said, according to a transcript of the interview released by the White House.

“To have a president who makes outrageous, offensive statements like this does not serve the interests of the Iranian people, does not strengthen Iran’s stature in the world community,” Obama said.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon weighed in with his own criticism of Ahmadinejad’s remarks.

“I strongly condemn the comments made yesterday by a leader of a delegation that called into question the cause of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil,” Ban said today at UN headquarters in New York.

You get the point, corporate media running anti-Iranian propaganda to beat the war drum so the U.S. Government can continue its perpetual war and continue to oppress the people from other nations and even the civil rights of Americans all in the name of the “War on Terror”. The same war that has innocent American activists being spied on by the FBI and placed on terror watch lists.

Traditionally, I consider NPR a good source of news, excluding them from the category of corporate media. After all when I claimed that the Government was lying about the amount of oil leaking from BP’s well and it could be proved by using the video feed corporate media ignored the story. When a reader of my blog submitted the story to NPR and they followed up on  having several scientists valid my claims.

Although it gets a bad wrap because of the anti-Muslim sentiment in America I also consider Al-Jazeera, the Arabic world’s version of NPR, to be rather good source of news. So I was surprised when I visited Al-Jazeera English to find they were running pretty much the same propaganda piece that U.S corporate media was running.

UN walkout over Ahmadinejad speech

US diplomats lead walkout as the Iranian president tells UN General Assembly some think the US was behind 9/11 attacks.

Ahmadinejad said there was a theory that “some segments within the US government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order also to save the Zionist regime.

“The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view,” he said.

PJ Crowley, the US assistant secretary of state, told Al Jazeera the statement was “totally outrageous”.

“[Those killed in the attacks] were people of all faiths, all nationalities. They were killed by 19 people, a plot perpetrated by al-Qaeda,” he said.

“We know who did it and they have admitted who did it. This idea that nine years later there is still some debate about who did it and why is outrageous.”

Lawrence Cannon, Canada’s foreign minister, called Ahmadinejad’s comments “unacceptable” and “a blatant violation of international standards and of the very spirit of the UN”.

’9/11 denier’

Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera’s senior political analyst, said: “[Ahmadinejad’s] attack on the traditional version of the 9/11 story was similar to his attack on the traditional version of the holocaust.

“So you can now say President Ahmadinejad is both a 9/11 denier and a Holocaust denier.

“And that simply does not set a positive tone for any negotiations with the Americans, but also underlines that Iran is not interested in talks anytime soon.”

Almost schizophrenically the Arabic version of Al-Jazeera actually ran a truthful version without the anti-Iranian war mongering with a somewhat misleading headline, perhaps lost in translation from Arabic to English.

Ahmadinejad: U.S. involvement attacks in September

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad angered the U.S. delegation and several European delegations, and it withdraw from the meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations during his speech on Thursday evening, after referring to the possible involvement of departments in the U.S. government in the attacks of 11 September 2001.

In his speech to the 65 session of the General Assembly, Ahmadinejad raised several points of view for the attacks, said that the hypothesis that al Qaeda was behind the attacks, widely adopted by officials in the U.S. government, which put less supportive.

He added that the point of view, the most widely accepted says that “There are some circles within the administration, organized the attack to stop the deterioration of the U.S. economy, and to control the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime.”

He said that this theory believe in “the majority of U.S. citizens and most of the nations and politicians around the world,” calling on the United Nations to establish “an independent group to investigate the facts,” to discuss the facts of the attacks that killed nearly 3000 people.

The Iranian president pointed to a third view sees the owners of terrorist groups that carried out the operation, but the U.S. government supported and exploited the situation to their advantage, arguing that this approach is less support than its predecessors.

And left two American officials who were attending a protest letter to Ahmadinejad’s remarks were followed by delegations on the spot and Western countries.

What Ahmadinejad Really Said To The UN

The main problem with all of the corporate media pieces is Ahmadinejad didn’t say that the U.S was behind the 9/11 attacks. He stated that the U.S. has used the attacks to justify the war on terror without a proper investigation. Personally, I find it ironic that we invaded two countries causing the deaths of thousands without a proper investigation being performed before the fact.  All Ahmadinejad did was  state that there are three alternate theories about the the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks and pointed out that since most people don’t believe the officials US version of the story a proper investigation should be done. With hundreds of thousands dead already a more dying every day I don’t feel that such a statement deserves the condemnation it has received.

To be fair he did say that most Americans and most people and officials around the world subscribe to 9/11 being an inside job perpetrated by members of the U.S Government. However, he didn’t make that statement as matter of fact or even state this was his opinion. Based on the FACT that a majority of people in the world don’t believe that Al-Queda and the U.S. using the attacks as a pretense to murder hundreds of thousands in the “War on Terror” and to oppress millions, including American citizens, Ahmadinejad calls for an independent investigation into 9/11.

Instead of following the corporate media’s example of propagandist deception by telling you what he said watch for yourself.

Ahmadinejad UN Speech 9/23/2010

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Speech at the United Nations, Sept. 23, 2010 Transcript about 9/11

The League of Nations and, then, the United Nations were established with the promise to bring about peace, security and the realization of human rights, which in fact meant a global management.

One can analyze the current governance of the world by examining three events:

First, the event of the II September 2001 which has affected the whole world for almost a decade. All of a sudden, the news of the attack on the twin towers was broadcast using numerous footages of the incident. Almost all governments and known figures strongly condemned this incident.

But then a propaganda machine came into full force; it was implied that the whole world was exposed to a huge danger, namely terrorism, and that the only way to save the world would be to deploy forces into Afghanistan. Eventually Afghanistan, and shortly thereafter Iraq were occupied.

Please take note:

It was said that some three thousands people were killed on the II September for which we are all very saddened. Yet, up until now, in Afghanistan and Iraq hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, millions wounded and displaced and the conflict is still going on and expanding.

In identifying those responsible for the attack, there were three viewpoints.

  1. That a very powerful and complex terrorist group, able to successfully cross all layers of the American intelligence and security, carried out the attack. This is the main viewpoint advocated by American statesmen.
  2. That some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order also to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view.
  3. It was carried out by a terrorist group but the American government supported and took advantage of the situation. Apparently, this viewpoint has fewer proponents.

The main evidence linking the incident was a few passports found in the huge volume of rubble and a video of an individual whose place of domicile was unknown but it was announced that he had been involved in oil deals with some American officials. It was also covered up and said that due to the explosion and fire no trace of the suicide attackers was found.

There remain, however, a few questions t0 be answered:

  1. Would it not have been sensible that first a thorough investigation should have been conducted by independent groups to conclusively identify the elements involved in the attack and then map out a rational plan to take measures against them?
  2. Assuming the viewpoint of the American government, is it rational to launch a classic war through widespread deployment of troops that led to the death of hundreds of thousands of people to counter a terrorist group?
  3. Was it not possible to act the way Iran countered the Riggi terrorist group who killed and wounded 400 innocent people in Iran. In the Iranian operation no innocent person was hurt.

It is proposed that the United Nations set up an independent fact-finding group for the event of the II September so that in the future expressing views about it is not forbidden. I wish to announce here that next year the Islamic Republic of Iran will host a conference to study terrorism and the means to confront it. I invite officials, scholars, thinkers, researchers and research institutes of all countries to attend this conference.

The transcripts and video of the speech is above now let’s contrast that with CNN reporting on the speech.

Clearly, Ahmadinejad did not claim that the Feds were behind the 9/11 attacks but is calling for an real investigation into the events surrounding 9/11 as he made clear today.

Ahmadinejad defends 9/11 remarks

Iran president challenges UN to set up fact-finding mission to investigate whether attacks on the US were a conspiracy.

Iran’s president has defended remarks he made on 9/11 attacks during his speech at the UN General Assembly.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that the background to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in the US in 2001 was “suspicious”.

A day earlier US and several Western diplomats walked out of the UN summit as Ahmadinejad said many believed “some segments within the US government orchestrated the attack”.

Speaking to journalists in New York on Friday, he challenged the UN to set up a fact-finding mission to investigate the attacks in which almost 3,000 people died.

“I did not pass judgement, but don’t you feel that the time has come to have a fact finding committee,” Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad Speech Was Exact Opposite of Media Portayal

Watching the entire speech and you will see that the Ahmadinejad is at the exact opposite of what the media depection.

  • Human rights and democracy created hopes for healing the deep wounds of the past. He states the West has turned away from ways of the moral past turning those hopes into memories and calls for a return to the moralistic ideals of the past which have been evaded by capitalistic greed.
  • He calls for fairness in UN Voting pointing out that those with veto powers rule the entire UN while silencing and oppressing all other countries in the world.
  • He calls for peace and religious tolerance among all faiths including Christians and Muslims, pointing out that both books contain the Holy words of the prophets Noah, Moses, Abraham, and many others.
  • He asserts that International Nuclear Proliferation Laws guarantee every nice the right to use nuclear energy and that law states that that all nations be provided with support and advice to develop nuclear energy.
  • He calls nuclear weapons horrible and calls on all nations to agree to nuclear disarmament pointing out that while the U.S is supposed to be disarming under international treaties the U.S. has only continued to expand its nuclear capabilities and the capabilities of its allies.
  • Calls for the senseless slaughter of innocent Muslims around the world by the U.S and Israel.
  • Points out that continual disregard for international law by the U.S, which the U.S uses to labels others as terrorists while committing even more atrocious acts like abduction, torture, and  illegal detention of thousands of political dissidents and the assassination and mass murder of hundreds of thousands of Muslims  Iraq,  Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank bank the U.S and Israel.
  • Fighting against terrorism, illicit drugs, poverty and the social gaps increased.
  • Instead of disarmament he says the proliferation and stockpiling of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons have been expanded by the west and calls for the end of such practices so the world can turn away from the practice of  globalist colonialism.
  • The oppressed people of Palestine have lived under the rule of an occupying regime for 60 years, been deprived of freedom, security and the right to self determination, while the occupiers are given recognition. On a daily basis, the houses are being destroyed over the heads of innocent women and children. People are deprived of water, food and medicine in their own homeland.
  • The end of the mass murder of innocent civilian Muslims and publicly announced assassinations being conducted by the U.S and Isreal.
  • Solutions are doomed to fail because the right of the Palestinian people is not taken into account. While the palestinians are oppressed, tortured, murdered and assassinated, those who tried to defend themselves against the U.S and Isreal are labeled terrorists.
  • The Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT) allows all member States to use nuclear energy without limits and the International Atomic Energy Agency is mandated to provide member States with technical and legal support. The nuclear bomb is the worst inhumane weapon and which must totally be eliminated. The NPT prohibits its development and stockpiling and calls for nuclear disarmament. onetheless, some of the permanent members of the Security Council and nuclear bomb holders have equated nuclear energy with the nuclear bomb, and have distanced this energy from the reach of most of nations by establishing monopolies and pressuring the IAEA. While at the same time, they have continued to maintain, expand and upgrade their own nuclear arsenals.

Corporate Media Perverts The Truth About Ahmadinejad’s Calls For Peace and Justice

Note I said based on the FACT that a majority of people in the world don’t believe that Al-Queda was behind the 9/11 attacks.  Once again let me back up that statement by first pointing out another propaganda piece that aims to discredit Ahmadinejad through deception. The piece on the NYTimes provides a graph of worldwide polling and then deceptively tells you what the poll results states. The article resorts to almost predictable Government style pysch-ops aimed at discrediting Ahmadinejad by labeling him as an extremist pushing wing-nut conspiracy theories that only few on the extreme fringe believe in.

The deceptive piece uses another propaganda tactic that shows you one thing but explains that your are really seeing something else instead of allowing you to come to your own objective interpretation of the facts.

9/11 Conspiracy Theory Not as Popular as Ahmadinejad Says

As my colleagues Neil MacFarquhar and Liz Robbins report, at the United Nations on Thursday, Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, claimed that “the majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree” that “some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated” the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

According to Mr. Ahmadinejad, the attacks were staged “to reverse the declining American economy” and to justify a military presence in the Middle East “to save the Zionist regime” of Israel.

The most comprehensive international poll on the subject was carried out in 2008 by WorldPublicOpinion.org, a collaborative project of research centers in various countries managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, which asked more residents of 17 countries the question, “Who do you think was behind the 9/11 attacks?” Their answers were grouped into four categories: Al Qaeda; the U.S. government; Israel; other.

When the poll findings were published, Reuters reported, “the survey of 16,063 people in 17 nations found majorities in only nine countries believe Al Qaeda was behind the attacks.” But there were also no countries in which a majority blamed the American government. The researchers found the most support for the idea that the U.S. government was responsible for the attacks in Turkey and Mexico — but just 36 percent of Turks and 30 percent of Mexicans endorsed the theory.

While I did not quote the anti-Iranian propaganda from the article the contradiction between the head line and the snippets clearly show my point.  The piece clearly states that only 9 out of 17 countries polled believe Al Qaeda was behind the attacks. Moreover, anyone with ability to think critically can see thatworldwide only 46% of people believe Al Qaeda is responsible.

That means that a majority of people, 54% to be exact, believe that the U.S, Isreal, another organization were behind the attacks or simply don’t buy the U.S. Government Explanation behind the attacks.

Instead of pointing this out, the NYTimes piece attempts to deceive your into believing that he is a lunatic pushing a conspiracy theory only believed by very few fringe wingnuts. The article then provides a link to opinion polls conducted in U.S about the 9/11 attacks from which it  cherry picks the very few polls that support the thesis of the article. In particular that showed that 15% of Americans believe that the 9/11 attacks were caused by a controlled demolition.

Links to several published polls on the question can be found in a Wikipedia entryon the subject. To take one recent example, in March, a poll by Angus Reid Public Opinion found relatively little support for a central contention of many conspiracy theorists, noting that, “Only 15 percent of respondents think claims that the collapse of the World Trade Center was the result of a controlled demolition are credible.”

Last year, Public Policy Polling found that just 14 percent of Americans agreed with the statement, “President Bush intentionally allowed the 9/11 attacks to take place because he wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East.”

In the context of the Times article one almost automatically interprets the 15 percent statistic to mean that “only 15% of Americans believe that U.S. government was complicit in the 9/11 attacks”. This is intentional deception relies on the premise that people place their trust in corporate media and are willing to take the word of stories reported as fact without checking the sources quoted.

However, clicking on the list of 9/11 opinion polls linked to in the article reveals an entirely different set of data. In fact the opinion polls almost entirely  contradict the representation that the article implies the polls show.

September 11 attacks opinion polls

National opinion polls

Zogby Polls

  • August 2004  found that 49 percent of New York City residents and 41 percent of New York state citizens believe individuals within the US government “knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act”.[4]
  • May 2006 –
    • “Some people believe that the US government and its 9/11 Commission concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks, saying there has been a cover-up. Others say that the 9/11 Commission was a bi-partisan group of honest and well-respected people and that there is no reason they would want to cover-up anything. Who are you more likely to agree with?”Responses:
      48% No Cover-up / 42% Cover-up / 10% Not sure
    • World Trade Center Building 7 is the 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by any planes during the September 11th attacks, but still totally collapsed later the same day. This collapse was not investigated by the 9/11 Commission. Are you aware of this skyscraper’s collapse, and if so do you believe that the Commission should have also investigated it? Or do you believe that the Commission was right to only investigate the collapse of the buildings which were directly hit by airplanes?” Responses:
      43% Not Aware / 38% Aware – should have investigated it / 14% Aware – right not to investigate it / 5% Not Sure
    • “Some people say that so many unanswered questions about 9/11 remain that Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success. Other people say the 9/11 attacks were thoroughly investigated and that any speculation about US government involvement is nonsense. Who are you more likely to agree with?” Responses: 47% Attacks were thoroughly investigated / 45% Reinvestigate the attacks / 8% Not Sure
  • August 2007
    • 51% of Americans want Congress to probe Bush/Cheney regarding the 9/11 attacks and over 30% of those polled seek immediate impeachment. While only 32% seek immediate Bush and/or Cheney impeachment based on their personal knowledge, many citizens appear eager for clear exposure of the facts.
    • In addition, the poll also found that two-thirds (67%) of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. Only 4.8 percent of the respondents agreed that members of the United States government “actively planned or assisted some aspects of the attack.”

New York Times / CBS News polls

When it comes to what they knew prior to September 11th, 2001, about possible terrorist attacks against the United States, do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth, are mostly telling the truth but hiding something, or are they mostly lying?”

  • May 2002 – 21% said “telling the truth”, 65% said they are “mostly telling the truth but hiding something”, 8% said they are “mostly lying”, 6% not sure

“Federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Centerand the Pentagon or took no action to stop them”.

  • 59% “not likely”
  • 20% “somewhat likely”
  • 16% “very likely”[12]

  • 6% “very likely”[14]
  • 2007 How about that some people in the federal government had specific warnings of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, but chose to ignore those warnings. Is this very likely, somewhat likely or unlikely?
    • 32% “Very Likely”
    • 30% “Somewhat Likely”
    • 30% “Unlikely”
    • 8% “Don’t Know/Other”

While the polls indicate that a majority of Americans don’t believe the U.S Government was directly carried out the attacks they do show an overwhelming majority believe that the US was complicit in the attacks feel a new investigation should be done.  In fact reading the sources that provided polls, as opposed to the summaries provided on the page, reveal even more data that does not support the NYTimes thesis.

Before I go on however, I would like to point out a few things about the polls.

  1. People polled tend to lie and misrepresent their true beliefs and opinions when they are likely to feel that answering truthfully will open themselves to a negative bias. For example, the Bradley Effectexplains why white candidates will tell opinion polls they plan to vote for a black candidate but at the poll they actually vote for a white candidate due to a phenomenon called social desirability bias. Such a phenomenon would be even more prevalent in regard to polls that make negative or accusatory statements against the Government. Given that we live in an age in which the Government can track us more many who believe the Government could have been involved with the 9/11 attacks would be even more inhibited not to answer truthfully in polls.
  2. The polls with questions about the Government “mostly”, “somewhat” or “partially” telling the truth are paradoxically contradictory.  Simply stated they are either telling the truth or they are not. If they are telling most of the truth or are mostly lying then the bottom line is they are lying.
  3. The very specific nature of the questions asked prevent the poll from showing the overall sentimental of how Americans really feel about 9/11. More vague questions with yes or no answers, such as “Do you believe the the Government involved in the 9/11 attacks or knew about the attacks and allowed them to happened”  would give a better gauge on how people felt.

Keeping those points in mind, the poll numbers still show an astounding majority who don’t buy into Government’s story.  When you consider that there has been little to know corporate media coverage of alternate theories about the attacks and we have an annual 1984 style hate weak with non-stop Government propaganda pieces brainwashing the masses into believing the official version of the story I am actually shocked that the majority simply don’t believe the government.

Morever, the public’s resistance to the brainwashing is further exemplified by the backlash and assault of discreditation launched against Ahmadinejad by the corporate media for even suggesting that alternate explanations exist for the 9/11 attacks.  To have such a majority of people not believe the Government’s story knowing how the media attacks those who dissent is surprising to say the least.

What is clear is that even with the lack of media coverage reflecting the opinion of the majority of Americans most still feel that events were not investigated properly, even while being unaware of critical details surrounding the attacks that is only discussed on underground websites.

That is to say most Americans feel that the Government lied and agree with Ahmadinejad’s call for a proper investigation into the attacks.

Opinion Polls Show Americans Agree With Ahmadinejad’s Call For New 9/11 Investigations

Now let me present my own version of the poll results in the opposite bias as presented by the NYTimes.

Half of New Yorkers Believe US Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9-11 Attacks and “Consciously Failed” To Act; 66% Call For New Probe of Unanswered Questions by Congress or New York’s Attorney General, New Zogby International Poll Reveals

On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders “knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act,” according to the poll conducted by Zogby International.

The charge found very high support among adults under 30 (62.8%), African-Americans (62.5%), Hispanics (60.1%), Asians (59.4%), and “Born Again” Evangelical Christians (47.9%).

The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.

The poll is the first of its kind conducted in America that surveys attitudes regarding US government complicity in the 9/11 tragedy. Despite the acute legal and political implications of this accusation, nearly 30% of registered Republicans and over 38% of those who described themselves as “very conservative” supported the claim.

The charge found very high support among adults under 30 (62.8%), African-Americans (62.5%), Hispanics (60.1%), Asians (59.4%), and “Born Again” Evangelical Christians (47.9%).

Less than two in five (36%) believe that the 9/11 Commission had “answered all the important questions about what actually happened on September 11th,” and two in three (66%) New Yorkers (and 56.2% overall) called for another full investigation of the “still unanswered questions”. The call for a deeper probe was especially strong from Hispanics (75.6%), African-Americans (75.3%) citizens with income from $15-25K (74.3%), women (62%) and Evangelicals (59.9%).

W. David Kubiak, executive director of 911truth.org, the group that commissioned the poll, expressed genuine surprise that New Yorkers’ belief in the administration’s complicity is as high or higher than that seen overseas. “We’re familiar with high levels of 9/11 skepticism abroad where there has been open debate of the evidence for US government complicity. On May 26th the Toronto Star reported a national poll showing that 63% of Canadians are also convinced US leaders had ‘prior knowledge’ of the attacks yet declined to act. There was no US coverage of this startling poll or the facts supporting the Canadians’ conclusions, and there has been virtually no debate on the victim families’ scores of still unanswered questions. I think these numbers show that most New Yorkers are now fed up with the silence, and that politicians trying to exploit 9/11 do so at their peril. The 9/11 case is not closed and New York’s questions are not going away.”

Now that paints an entirely different story than the NYTimes article. But here is the real kicker, that isn’t even my own version but are snippets from the actual Zogby Poll.

So here is my own version for real this time.

Despite a recent NYTimes piece claiming that 9/11 conspiracy theories are not as popular as Ahmadinejad says the truth couldn’t be any further removed from the facts as evidenced by multiple polls surrounding controversy over the the 9/11 attacks.

For example a series of Zogby polls shows that over half of New Yorkers believe the Feds knew the attacks on 9/11 where going to occur and 2/3 thirds call for a new investigation into the attacks.

In national Zogby polls only 48% of Americans believe that the Feds didn’t cover up the investigation, only 47% of Americans believe the attacks were properly investigated, and only 14% of people believe the Feds acted correctly in their failure investigate the collapse of building 7 near the Twin Towers which collapsed several hours later even though it was not hit by any plans on 9/11. The Zogby polls also found that 51% with over 30% calling for their impeachment over the attacks in poll was conducted in 2007.

A series of polls conducted by the New York Times and CBS showed that only 24% of Americans believed the Government was telling the truth about the 9/11 attacks in 2004 and that number dropped to only 14% believing the Government was not lying about the attacks in 2006.

A Scripps howard poll in 2007 also revealed that 30% of Americans believed that the Feds knew nothing about the 9/11 attacks before they occurred, and 62% said they believed that the the Feds ignored the warnings and did nothing to prevent the attacks.

No matter what way you look at it, the corporate media’s representation that only a very small minority of those on the extreme fringe refuse to believe the Government’s story about the 9/11 attacks is wrong. In fact over 700 architects and engineers are making news headlines right for their submission of scientific evidence disputing the Government’s claims about the 9/11 attacks.

Over 700 Architects and Engineers Make Renewed Calls For 9/11 Investigation

A coalition 700 architects and engineers can’t be called fringe lunatics. These are professional scientists with their careers and livelihoods on the line.  Such a public outcry by those with so much to risk may be why  the corporate media is finally, on September 24, 2010, paying attention to renewed calls to perform a real investigation into the U.S Governments’ role in the 9/11 attacks.

The story is even being carried by a U.S Veteran’s organization.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth hit the American mainstream

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered;

the point is to discover them”

Galileo Galilei(1564 – 1642)

Nobody in his right mind, nobody with the least critical thinking could possibly buy into the 9/11 official story of the reason why the world trade center towers collapsed – at free fall speed- like a house of cards into their basements in just few seconds- WTC building 7 collapsed in exactly 6.5 seconds. Something only very precise demolition can accomplish, something which takes days if not weeks to prepare.

Whoever planned the 9/11 operation and whoever managed to fool the masses of  terrorized people and tricked them into believing that al Qa`ida and its members of Afghanistan cave dwellers pulled this thing off did not consider that scientists and trained specialists would be the ones to finally expose the conspiracy and unravel 9/11 mystery.

In a previous post by the title “Danish scientist breaks the 9/11 culture of silence” We explained why professor Neil Harrits– a Danish professor of chemistry believed the two airplanes- impacts did not cause the towers to collapse.  And according to a newly published scientific article, researchers found Nano-Thermite explosive in the rubble of WTC collapsed buildings that couldn’t have come from the planes. They believe large amounts of explosives were placed in the buildings in advance.

Neil Harrits and eight other researchers conclude in this article that it was Nano-Thermite that caused these buildings to collapse.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Richard Gage, AIA, Founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) with former Senator Gravel, held a press conference Presenting Findings on September 9, 2010 at National Press Club, Washington, D.C.

They presented the group’s findings and called for a new investigation into the destruction of the 3 World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.

Their findings are based on the following scientific observations and Hard Evidence of Explosive Demolition of the WTC towers.

As seen in this revealing photo, the Twin Towers’ destruction exhibited all of the characteristics of destruction by explosives:

  1. Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at nearly free-fall acceleration
  2. Improbable symmetry of debris distribution
  3. Extremely rapid onset of destruction
  4. Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes
  5. Multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally
  6. Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking
  7. Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
  8. 1200-foot-dia. debris field: no “pancaked” floors found
  9. Isolated explosive ejections 20 – 40 stories below demolition front
  10. Total building destruction: dismemberment of steel frame
  11. Several tons of molten metal found under all 3 high-rises
  12. Evidence of thermite incendiaries found by FEMA in steel samples
  13. Evidence of explosives found in dust samples
  14. No precedent for steel-framed high-rise collapse due to fire

And exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire, i.e.

  1. Slow onset with large visible deformations
  2. Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, intact, from the point of plane impact, to the side most damaged by the fires)
  3. Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
  4. High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never “collapsed”

WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:

1. Rapid onset of “collapse”

2. Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a second before the building’s destruction

3.Symmetrical “structural failure” — through the path of greatest resistance — at free-fall acceleration

4. Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint

5. Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic dust clouds

6. Expert corroboration from the top European Controlled Demolition professional

7. Fore-knowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY

In the the aftermath of WTC7′s destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendary devices was discovered:

8. FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular meltingon structural steel samples

9. Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly-qualified witnesses

10. Chemical signature of thermite (high tech incendiary) found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples

WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire, i.e.

1. Slow onset with large visible deformations

2. Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)

3. Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel

4. High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never “collapsed”.
