Americans remain skeptical about the official explanations for the 9-11 terrorist attacks, with most believing new independent investigations are needed, according to a Zogby poll.

The results show 42 percent of those surveyed believe there has been a cover up of the facts by the government – with 10 percent unsure and 45 percent saying “Congress or an international tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any U.S. government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success.”

An earlier Zogby poll sponsored by the same group,, found in 2004 showed nearly half of New Yorkers believed certain U.S. officials “consciously” allowed the attacks to happen.

“To those of us who have followed the mounting evidence for U.S. government involvement in 9-11, these results are both heartening and frankly quite amazing, given the mainstream media’s ongoing refusal to cover the most critical questions of that day,” said Janice Matthews, executive director of the group. “We think it also indicates Americans are awakening to the larger pattern of deceit that led us into constitutional twilight and endless war, and that our independent media may have finally come of age.”
