More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks
or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio
The national survey of 1,010 adults also found that anger against the federal government is at record
levels, with 54 percent saying they "personally are more angry" at the government than they used to be.

resentment and alienation toward the national government appears to be fueling a growing acceptance of conspiracy theories
about the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Suspicions that the 9/11 attacks were "an inside
job" — the common phrase used by conspiracy theorists on the Internet — quickly have become nearly as popular
as decades-old conspiracy theories that the federal government was responsible for President John F. Kennedy's assassination
and that it has covered up proof of space aliens.
Seventy percent of people who give credence to these theories also
say they've become angrier with the federal government than they used to be.
Thirty-six percent of respondents overall
said it is "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade

taken from July 6 to 24, 2006 concluded that “more than a third [36 percent] of the American public suspects that federal
officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them, so that the United States could go to war

not burning passenger jets, were the real reason the massive twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed.”
A poll done by the Zogby polling organization two
months earlier, between May 12 and 16, 2006, and using questions worded somewhat differently, suggested even more strongly
that the issue could become a “big one” if aggressively publicized. This poll concluded that 42 percent of
Americans believed there had indeed been a cover-up of the true events of 9/11, and an additional 10 percent of Americans
were “unsure.” The co-author of the poll, W. David Kubiak, stated that, “despite years of relentless
media promotion, whitewash, and 9/11 Commission propaganda, the official 9/11 story still can’t even muster 50 percent
