Remember 9/11

CNN hat zu 9/11 eine Memorial Page eingrichtet:

On September 11, 2001, four U.S. planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people in a matter of hours. Behind the staggering number of deaths are the individuals, each of whom left behind family, friends and co-workers who feel the national tragedy on a personal level. CNN.com established this site as a record of those who died. The site was archived in August 2004.

Zum Jahrestag zeigt sich dies Jahr auch erneut, dass man, gerade außerhalb der USA, sich erneut bei Verschwörungstheorien bedient um seinen Antiamerikanismus auch in Bezug auf 9/11 zum Ausdruck zu bringen…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, there is no consensus outside the United States that Islamist militants from al Qaeda were responsible, according to an international poll published Wednesday.

The survey of 16,063 people in 17 nations found majorities in only nine countries believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks on New York and Washington that killed about 3,000 people in 2001.

On average, 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible, 15 percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some other perpetrator. One in four people said they did not know who was behind the attacks.
