September 11 -- what year? 30 percent of Americans don't know
Comment: If 30 per cent are virtually oblivious to the event itself, and 36 per cent believe government complicity enabled the attack, then that leaves only 34 per cent of Americans who actually believe the official version of events.
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Some 30 percent of
Americans cannot say in what year the September 11, 2001
terrorist attacks against New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon
in Washington took place, according to a poll published in the Washington
While the country is preparing to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the attacks that claimed nearly 3,000 lives and shocked the world, 95 percent of Americans questioned in the poll were able to remember the month and the day of the attacks, according to Wednesday's edition of the newspaper.
But when asked what year, 30 percent could not give a correct answer.
Of that group, six percent gave an earlier year, eight percent gave a later year, and 16 percent admitted they had no idea whatsoever.
This memory black hole is essentially the problem of the older crowd: 48 percent of those who did not know were between the ages of 55 and 64, and 47 percent were older than 65, according to the poll.
The Post telephone survey was carried out July 21-24 among 1,002 randomly selected adults. The margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.
