Most doubt need for 9/11 probe

CONCORD – A new independent poll showed three in 10 New Hampshire residents would support another investigation into the cause of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Most residents (60 percent) did not think there were enough unanswered questions to justify another 9/11 probe while 29 percent favored a new investigation. The other 11 percent said they didn’t know which side they were on.

Dr. Bill Woodward, a University of New Hampshire psychology professor, said 60 percent of those younger than 35 favored another investigation.

“We suspected that distrust of the official story of 9/11, and support for a new investigation was widespread in the Granite State, but this poll provides the first solid evidence that a good portion of New Hampshire residents are not satisfied with the flawed governmental investigations of the past decade,” Woodward said.

The Seacoast 9/11 Questions Group sponsored the poll that the University of New Hampshire Survey Center did by telephone from June 21 through July 1.

The group paid for two 9/11 related questions to be asked in conjunction with the Granite State Poll that UNH periodically does throughout the year.

The margin of error for this survey was plus or minus 4.3 percent.

About a third (32 percent) of respondents said they knew a lot about the official investigation into the terrorist attacks while (58 percent) said they knew a little about it. The other 10 percent knew nothing at all or had no opinion.
