On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act," according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.

Let there be no doubt that the dumbest people in the world live in cities, the "intellectuals" in New York City who look down at flyover country are actually the most brainwashed, gullible people in the history of civilization.
Pray that you never reach the level of "sophistication" of Manhattanites or other city dwellers.
This kind of thinking got us Barack Hussein Obama, the video oat howobamagotelected.com fits in nicely with this and the Zogby poll that went with it.
We are at the mercy of greater and greater numbers of zombies who have no concept of reality. Generations of public schools, Marxist brainwashing institutions called "colleges" and the U.S. Pravda have brought us to this dangerous point in history.
Nice find. The DUmmies and DailyKooks keep up with the polls that say people think Saddam was behind 9-11, but somehow miss reporting this one.
I would imagine that half of New Yorkers would be shocked to learn that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are not real.
This poll tells me that the problem of mental illness is much more widespread than I could have imagined.
And they vote for Obama, Hillary, and Spitzer. No surprise there.
Republicans need to get Giuliani to run for Hillary’s vacant seat and break up that mess.
Someone needs to pose the “Oh, Jeez, not this sh$t again!” graphic.
We are at the mercy of “half-baked intellectuals” who control the education of our children, our colleges, our “news”, movies, music, pop culture, etc.
How do we de-program people and introduce them to reality without one network that disputes the non-stop left wing propaganda of the Media Matrix?
I’m pretty sure many in the intelligence community did have facets of the knowledge of impending attacks. They just weren’t allowed to talk to each other thanks to Gorelick. Had they been allowed to communicate what they knew, they might have been able to put it all together.
At any given moment there are probably hundreds of threats... knowing about a potential “threat” isn’t the problem - knowing which one is REAL is the trick.
See post 3.
Possibly you are right. However, I think all manner of bizarre theories abound because people can no longer trust the veracity of traditional sources of information i.e. goverment officials and media “creatures.” There is a dearth of leadership; hence the people elected an outsider in desperation. When he fails, which he is bound to do, chaos will reign until Caesar comes.
“Half of New Yorkers Believe That U.S. Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9/11 Attacks...”
Half of New York Voters are Democrats and also mentally retarded.
> This poll tells me that the problem of mental illness is much more widespread than I could have imagined.
I have Depression, Dyscalculia and ADHD and I don’t believe that US leaders had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.
And you’re right: mental illness is much more widespread than most people can imagine.
Some knew of the impending attacks, but they were DEMOCRATS.
They weren’t asked about vague attacks, they were asked about the attacks on 9/11 specifically and half of the city believed we “let” it happen, which implies that a lot of them think Bush and Cheney did it, a widely held opinion which you can see on left wing message boards and youtube, etc.
Just look at the shape New York is in and you can understand why such a stupid answer is given. And the Mayor’s leadership and the NY Times encourages such nonsense.
It is also interesting to note that exactly 49.3% of residents of New York City are blithering idiots. Coincidence?
Just like FDR had foreknowledge of the Pearl Harbor attack.
Ok, I can see that .....
Yep. It's all laid out here quite clearly...
Half? Pfffft! Try 85%.
“Blame Bush” mentality is alive and well. Not one of these New Yorkers understand what goes on in a transition. Prez took office in Jan 20, 2001. Barely 8 months later, 911 occurs. The first year is all about getting people nominated and confirmed by Congress. That’s why it’s called a transition year. 911 was an event that took years of planning—about 5 years which places when planning took place in 1996 under the clintoon regime. And we all know what was occurring. Everytime a clintoon bimbo alert occurred, clintoon ordered bombing of a country to deflect media’s attention. And now these dumbos are still with the same record. Collectively, people are stupid.
9/11 will forever be Bill Clinton’s legacy.
After the attempt to bring down the towers in 1993 Clinton did NOTHING, to make matters worse he turned down offers to kill Bin-Laden.
If someone came to your family reunion with a machine gun and tried to kill your whole family, but missed and only killed a couple, would you say, no harm, no foul? That is exactly what Bill Clinton did, they TRIED to TOPPLE the towers and kill tens of thousands. Since they didn’t use enough explosives they got a FREE PASS from Bill Clinton.
The time to start the International War On Terror was after the 1st attempt to knock down the towers, Bill Clinton failed miserably and gave us 9/11/01.
Then “Half of New Yorkers” are as stupid as they look.
Time mag. may have had info, being they chose to publish their 9/11/2001 issue with William Ayers standing on the American flag on the COVER!
Wouldn’t you love to see the internals of this poll? Can you imagine how high the number of Democrats believing in the 9/11 conspiracy would be??
Democrats call us dumb???
And they won't rest until Bush and Chaney are in prison. That's what this is about. The total destruction and marginalization of their opponents.
you’re probably closer to the truth than you realize!
You’re thinking of the New York Times cover.
As predicted the post election coverage of terrorist Bill Ayers who planned on killing 25 Million capitalists that couldn’t be re-educated in his “camps” was slobbering and friendly.
As predicted Bill Ayers got far kinder and deferential treatment from the US Pravda than any Republican.
We are in a very, very, dark time in our history.
If you poll in certain area codes you get the results you want.
This is Zogby’s way of making up for the poll showing the idiots who voted for Obama.
This was a poll of New Yorkers, where 9/11 happened, Zogby wasn’t trying to make New Yorkers look foolish, this poll is from 2004 during the Republican Convention.
Zogby has no interest in making democrats look stupid, he’s a democrat, the people in the poll made themselves look stupid.
Did you see the Zogby poll at howobamagotelected.com ? It made Obama look stupid too, he was contracted to do that poll and showed how brainwashed Democrats were by the media using specific questions.
There was so much outrage about the results that Zogby refused to do another poll for howobamagotelected.com Zogby is a democrat whore, he can’t help it if democrats are stupid, it’s hard to hide.
It made Obama look stupid
Should be: it made Democrats look stupid
Ya well 75% of Obama supporters were happy about the attacks.
They will be right about the next one...
When you mention the first WTC bombing, you get blank stares.
Meaningless prattle about people stupid enough to vote for Obama and to elect Hillary, Chuck Schumer, governor Hot Pants, the arrogant and insufferable mayor Bloomberg and the racist Charlie Rangel.
The only good thing about the possibility of a dirty bomb going off one day would be it’s effect on the democrat voter base.
“Some knew of the impending attacks, but they were DEMOCRATS.”
Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner!
That and and rising tides on the coasts and a CA earthquake and the democrats wouldn’t win a national election for 50 years. They would blame Bush though.
Half of New Yorkers are also of below average intelligence.
You and FFranco need to elaborate, you think democrats were behind 9/11???
What can you do in the face of such derangement? People obviously base their political decisions on illusions.
That’s the question, why have we let liberals dominate school curriculum, dominate our colleges, journalism, entertainment, etc.
We need our own network to bring people back to reality, not the left wing Media Matrix version of reality.
And, as we all know, NYC is just chock full of "intellectuals," or at least that's what they keep trying to tell us.
They know so much that just isn’t so. - Reagan
