World doesn’t agree on who was responsible for 9/11 attacks
by Larry Geller
This is another site that is useful to follow the buzz around the world: WorldPublicOpinion.org. Amazingly, their top story today is similar to the previous post. Well, not so amazing, after all it is the seventh anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
From the article:
A new WorldPublicOpinion.org poll of 17 nations finds that majorities in only nine of them believe that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.
In no country does a majority agree on another possible perpetrator, but in most countries significant minorities cite the US government itself and, in a few countries, Israel. These responses were given spontaneously to an open-ended question that did not offer response options.
On average, 46 percent say that al Qaeda was behind the attacks while 15 percent say the US government, seven percent Israel, and seven percent some other perpetrator. One in four say they do not know.
The article includes the questionnaire methodology.

I'm a little bit disappointed, only the respondents of Turkey and Mexico seem to have partly gotten it.
