9/11 was an inside job: 1 in 7 in US, UK




About one out of seven US and British citizens believe that the US government was behind the 9/11 attacks, according to a poll recently conducted in the United States and Britain.


The survey interviewed 1,000 people on August 28, asking them, "It is generally accepted that these attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda. However some people have suggested there was a wider conspiracy that included the American government. Do you, yourself, believe that there was a wider conspiracy, or not?"

The Daily Mail reported on Friday that 14 percent of British citizens and 15 percent of US citizens believe the George W. Bush administration actually staged the attacks, with the view most common among young people aged between 16 and 24, 24 percent of whom said they believed 9/11 was an inside job.

Gordon Duff, the senior editor of Veterans Today, discussed the 9/11 issue during an interview with Press TV's US Desk on Tuesday.

It is very distressing for US veterans to know that their own government was responsible for the disaster, and on September 11, 2011 "they are going to come out, parade around, and lie to us again," Duff said.
