(August 3, 2006) — According to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll, over a third of the American public suspect the United States government of either direct involvement in or prior knowledge of the September 11 attacks, and believe that they were staged or covered up in order to provoke a Middle East war.

The posting of a Scripps Howard story at an online news site further notes that “anger against the federal government is at record levels,” with 54 percent of those polled saying they “personally are more angry” at the government than they used to be.

Meanwhile, overall, 36 percent of the respondents said it is “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, or took no action to stop them “because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East.”

This news was not all that surprising to Lee Hamilton, former vice chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (a.k.a. “9/11 Commission”), who is quoted as saying, “One out of three sounds high, but that may very well be right. A lot of people I’ve encountered believe the US government was involved.

Many say the government planned the whole thing. Of course, we don’t think the evidence leads that way at all,” he concluded.*

New revelations from articles in both The Washington Post and Vanity Fair are sure to fuel alternative theories about US government involvement in the attacks on both the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. At the very least, the concerns of the commission raise, once again, the ongoing issue of the Bush Administration’s failure to be honest with the American people.]: http://www.capitolhillblue.com/content/2006/08/pentagon_decept.html

Zakheim resigned when he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. And three years earlier on 9-10-01, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld announced that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. Although that story was buried under the rubble of 9-11, sums totaling $3.3 trillion dollars disappeared on Zakheim’s watch. Although it is not obvious, Zakheim’s connection with 9-11 will become clear.]:
