Conspiracy Madness Grips Central Europe


By a common-sense patriot
...this letter is taking the Internet like wildfire – forward liberally!...

Nineteen percent of Germans believe it is possible that elements of the United States government may have intentionally allowed or even ordered the Sept. 11 attacks to go ahead. Thirty percent of those under 30 hold this view. And 68 percent of all Germans say they think the U.S. government is still covering up important facts about 9/11.

These are the results of a just-released poll of 1,000 people in Germany, commissioned by the respected Hamburg weekly, DIE ZEIT (for an English report see Reuters, http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L23109558.htm for German see Der Spiegel, http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/0,1518,258299,00.html).

Dreadful! The "outrageous conspiracy theories" that George W. Bush warned against in his Nov. 2001 speech to the United Nations have taken hold among millions of people in a key Western country and U.S. ally.

Patriotic Americans need to take immediate action to counteract this poisonous development - to defend the reputation of our nation and our government. We have to show these sadly deluded Germans (and presumably millions of French and other Europeans and Asians, too) how a well-informed public should behave.

What do people think in a truly democratic country? What opinions might prevail in a country blessed with open, ethical and professional mass media? Yes, I mean a country like the United States! We must show the world that Americans reject these absurd conjectures!

That is why I urge you all to drop the dishes and join in this emergency campaign to get the U.S. media to conduct the same poll, with the same questions, in the United States.

It's time for you to call, write and lobby your local and national newspapers, wire services and television stations, and urge them to ask AMERICANS --

The 64-Dollar, Nine-Eleven Question --

"Do you believe it is possible that people in the U.S. government might have knowingly and intentionally allowed - or ordered - the Sept. 11 attacks to go ahead?"

For ammunition against the rising tide of European cynicism, we need some hard data on how many U.S. citizens believe this claptrap. What better time than now, with the two-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks coming up? Media companies, be the first to show your national pride:

Ask the 64-Dollar, Nine-Eleven Question today!

Sincerely,

a common-sense patriot
