Polls on Osama bin Laden Death & 9-11

The American people’s trust in government has been declining since the 1970s, first precipitated by President Nixon’s Watergate scandal. Since then, through Democratic and Republican administrations, our distrust and sense of alienation from government have only increased.
It is a sign of that distrust that a recent Zogby poll found that more than 1 in 5 likely voters in the United States do not believe that Osama bin Laden is dead. [Read my post on this HERE.]
I’ve been meaning to do this poll of our readers for some time now. Here it is:


UPDATE: A reader asks that we also do a poll on OBL and 9-11:

I picked #2, because given everything I have read about and know about OBL over the years, it is the only one that makes any sense.

I believe I know Obama well enough to conclude that it most likely would be #2. Obama is all about getting the campaign edge so remains in compaign mode throughout his putative presidency. This also makes for a good smoke screen, especially when refusing to allow viewing of pictures. Same story as birth certicate/eligibility issue. He wants the right looked at as wacky conspiracy theorists, so plays games like a punk kid. He’s an idiot with idiot minions who kiss his ugly feet and buttox.

Well, either way, Osama’s dead… time of it is suspiciously political (first the birth certificate all of a sudden, then bin’s skinned… hmm).

Given the results of the poll so far, just for curiosity sake… Can you run a poll that asks:
Do you believe Osama bin Laden was the “master mind” behind the attacks on September 11th, 2001?
O – Yes, I believe beyond a reasonable doubt that Osama is the person who devised, coordinated and managed the attacks.
O – No, I do not have enough information to lead me to that conclusion.

My understanding is KSM was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.
By the way- I’m one of the 10 as of this post. If ObL died a long time ago, that would presumably have been during the Bush administration. I can’t believe that no one would come forward to dispute what would be an obvious political play on the part of the Obama Administration; after all, it’s not like they’ve been exceptionally kind to 43.

No, the decline in trust in our govt. actually started with the Kennedy assassination in Dallas. Then, the RFK & MLK & Gov. Wallace assassinations (and attempts).
Great artricle!! Thanks.

This just in… Apparently, among among Osama’s Al Qaeda-related stuff, they’ve found a “huge” (in the words of a U.S. official) stash of porn.
