International Poll: No Consensus On Who Was Behind 9/11

Here is an interesting poll with some very interesting outcomes.

For example only 46% of the worlds population believes on average the official 911 account. 15% thinks that it was the US government who perpetrated the attack, 7% believed Israel had something to do with it and a whopping 25% doesn’t know who did it. Those are minorities but they are significant minorities.

People in Muslim countries are more inclined to doubt the official version but a country like Mexico also shows an astounding 30% believing that the US government is itself responsible for the attacks with only 33% believing the official story.

A WorldPublicOpinion.org poll of 17 nations found that majorities in only nine of them believed that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

In no country did a majority agree on another possible perpetrator, but in most countries significant minorities cited the US government itself and, in a few countries, Israel. These responses were given spontaneously to an open-ended question that did not offer response options.

On average, 46 percent said that al Qaeda was behind the attacks while 15 percent say the US government, seven percent Israel, and seven percent some other perpetrator. One in four said they do not know.

“Given the extraordinary impact the 9/11 attacks have had on world affairs, it is remarkable that seven years later there was no international consensus about who was behind them,” comments Steven Kull, director of WorldPublicOpinion.org.
