9/11 shocker! Half of Americans Suspect US Government’s Lying

dayton_poll_smallby Kevin Barrett


On the eve of the 12th anniversary of 9/11, nearly half of the American people suspect their government is lying about what happened that day.

A recent scientific survey by YouGov, sponsored by ReThink911.org, found that only 40% of Americans are fully satisfied with the official account of 9/11, while 48% either doubt the official story or do not believe it at all.

Shockingly, only 23% of Americans believe the government’s story about World Trade Center 7 – a 47-story highrise that imploded for no apparent reason on the afternoon of 9/11. (What is truly shocking is that almost one in four Americans actually believes the government’s claim that WTC-7 imploded in 6 1/2 seconds due to office fires.)

The poll data shows that there is still no consensus among the American people about what really happened on 9/11, despite the government and mainstream media’s all-out efforts to reinforce the crumbing official story and black out the whole issue of WTC-7.

The anniversary of 9/11 this Wednesday will feature major events in New York City and Washington, DC sponsored by groups asking Americans to re-think 9/11.

In Washington DC, the United In Courage coalition will lead the Million American March Against Fear, beginning at noon in the National Mall between 12th and 14th Streets. The Million American March Against Fear will commemorate all of the victims of 9/11, and demand an end to the 9/11-triggered “politics of fear” that has shredded the Constitution, launched illegal wars of aggression, and bankrupted the nation. Dr. Cornel West, regarded by many as America’s leading public intellectual, is the keynote speaker.

In New York, Richard Gage AIA of the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth will lead an all day tour culminating at 5:20 p.m. in a rally beneath the huge RE-THINK 9/11 billboard in Times Square. (The 5:20 p.m. rally time commemorates the implosion of WTC-7.)

Also in Washington DC, on the weekend after 9/11, is the DC 9/11 Conference whose motto is “advancing the truth.” Though sold out in advance, the conference will be broadcast live – just go to the USTREAM link at http://dc911conference.org/.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, the 9/11 Truth Film Festival is running all day on September 11th. The livestream will be carried on NoLiesRadio.org.

Then on September 22nd, the Midwest 9/11 Truth Conference in Urbana, Illinois will feature Wayne Madsen, Jim Fetzer, and yours truly.

Widespread public doubts about 9/11 are fueling public skepticism about the wisdom of attacking Syria.Twelve years after the events of September 11th, 2001, a strong majority of Americans thinks their leaders are lying about the desirability of attacking Syria, and many – including such respected figures as Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, and Lawrence Wilkerson – are calling the “chemical weapons incident” a likely false-flag. Today, ten years after the US attacked Iraq, an overwhelming majority recognizes that the Iraq war was based on lies.

The upshot: If 9/11 briefly succeeded as a trigger for mass hypnosis, putting Americans into a trance and conditioning them to accept their leaders’ lying rationales for war, that trance appears to have worn off.

    About 7 years ago I woke up and turned the TV off, better late than never. I started reading history books in reverse. Could care less what the “Victors” said, (albeit very interesting indeed) and started reading history from the villains/victims point of view. Flat-out dumbfounding, shocking and eye-opening. Without doing that, you can never really know anything about what really happened. Then I followed the money, Dean Henderson really opened my eyes. My point is, the Holocaust never happened and the Jews did 9/11. Once one sees that or is even willing to acknowledge that there is even a smidgeon of truth to those 2 facts, then the money trail and who benefits, shines thru like a blinding beacon of understanding.

    Planes brought down the Towers? Mini-nukes a fantastical notion? You are either woefully ignorant or a government shill. Checkout an article on this very site that I co-authored: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/05/01/mystery-solved-the-wtc-was-nuked-on-911/ . Then explain the evidence for nuclear fission in the USGS dust samples and fusion in the DOE water samples. Explain the 600 – 2,000 °F temps at Ground Zero for six months after 9/11. Explain how a puny kerosene fire can vaporize 1/3 of a 500,000 ton building. Explain why there were no desks, chairs, computers or toilets found in the rubble of the Towers.

    @Omni Puss: “The other 10% said they don’t believe the government’s account at all, which again could mean they think the government is wrong, not necessarily lying.”

    I suppose you’d call Phyllis Diller a bathing beauty, right?

    Maybe people are” waking up” in large numbers to false flag terrorism in general and specifically to false flag terrorism perpetrated by USA, with 9-11 being on USA in USA by USA as inside/outside job with Mossad and other governments.
    Problem is they got away with 9-11.

    There is no chance for a good “new investigation” that seems to be the mantra call of the dominant “9-11 truth movement” these days.

    There is no chance for the perpetrators to be identified and brought to justice.

    There is no chance for any kind of honest investigation of anything by the U S government — period!

    I note that the Dr. Steven Jones / Richard Gage / nanothermite gang, the gang that ran out the clock on justice and corralled the entire “truth movement” early on, has taken total control of 9-11 truth events this 12th anniversary of 9-11. They have all the new polls and all the new “awakening” totally in their current disinformation / misinformation strategy.

    Focus on Building 7
    Call for a new investigation
    Twin Towers were destroyed by “controlled demolition” exactly as Building 7 was

    yadda yadda

    So plain the truth movement is still not about truth!

    Keep on truckin Doc. And remember, today is the anniversary of Rummy’s announcement to the world that 2.3 trillion dollars went missing from the Pentagon. Ah well, it’s only money.

    Great to see a current poll on 9/11. Great to see that the American people are awakening. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Dr. Barrett!

  7. joeflaherty  September 10, 2013 at 8:29 am

    Perhaps the planned attack on Syria is just a means to divert attention away from the 9/11 hoax that has been gaining momentum lately. In fact, the fabricated evidence as a casus belli to invade Syria might be drawing more people over to the truth.
    The 50th Anniversary of JFK’s murder is also on the horizon. The establishment will have to work hard and heavy to distract the public from here on out.

    How many people know that a 4th building was nuked that day? I refer to Building 6 as the mini-nuke poster child. Tritium found in water samples in the basement at 55 times background 11 days after 9/11 and after it rained twice and a million liters of firehouse water was sprayed on the building. 170 meter high plume of smoke seen rising from it BEFORE the Towers came down and a massive crater left in the middle of the building. Cement was so hot that it flowed like lava around anything in its path. http://donaldfox.wordpress.com/2012/12/22/jim-fetzer-radio-appearance-122212-traces-of-tritium-at-the-wtc/

    From the very beginning the town towers was a planned, and known event. Too neat, too tidy. The basement article explains it all, and it was very convincing to anyone who had any doubts.
    Watching the planes hit their homing devices, flown by remote control, disappearing into the either tower was a little much to digest.
    I am sure the multi-millions of American bought the entire story from the very first, and to this day still think it was Osama who did it all from a cave in AfghaniPakistan.
    Bush was president, and nothing has ever come out of a Bush anything and been good. Think people!!! Poke your head out every now and then and pay some attention.
    All these specials on TV about the 911 event are nothing but propaganda whether on Fox news or another manipulated news source.

      Chandler ~ Here’s the bottom line: Jet fuel cannot melt structural steel.
      Never has, never will.
      The official 9/11 story which has been used to destroy the US, create Homeland Security, Iraq
      War, War on Terror, NSA etc…is based on a lie.
      See Video:

    • wolf  September 12, 2013 at 7:14 am

      True. Fires from burning jet fuel (kerosene) and office furnishings etc do NOT burn hot enough to melt structural steel or even weaken it to the point of collapse. And the towers were designed to withstand the impact of a fully loaded Boeing 707. But it is the free fall symmetrical collapse of WTC7 that is the smoking gun.

    • disobey4sure  September 27, 2013 at 9:50 am

      Allen Roland– No jet fuel can not melt structural steel and Aluminum Airplanes can not penetrate structural steel, either!!

  10. blakehamilton  September 9, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    But no mention of Israel or Mossad?

    • robert  September 10, 2013 at 2:26 am

      One step at a time.

      Israel being the perpetrator might be a bit too much to swallow right now. Lets establish the crime and then go for the culprits. I mean REALLY go for them.

    • disobey4sure  September 27, 2013 at 9:54 am

      blakehamilton– Read Dimitri’s book– He’ll tell you all about those two different animals—
      also, the US Government and the CIA animals.

    Thanks Kevin, for this actual summary.

    It seems, the towers, this time the towers of Babel, seem to crumble down at accellerated speed. These statistical numbers show nothing more than – now also for the american people – what was already the majority perception of the people outside of the US.

    Congratulations for all the hard working truthers (many greeting to Mr. Sunstein, his propaganda effort at least didn’t have the result he anticipated) and the steadily growing number of lay people, who care and think for themselves.

    As I’ve always stated, don’t ever underestimate the people!

    • Detlef Reimers  September 9, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      Start to trust your own people. Here is an actual example of a courages american, talking in public in front of John Mc. Cain:


      I say bravo to this man. You told the truth as bad as it is, but it’s necessary.
