A Third of Americans Believe the U.S. Government Allowed 9/11 to Happen

The headline above may sound pretty provocative, but it's a fact, according to a poll conducted last summer by Scripps News Service, that a third of Americans believe in some variation of the 9/11 Truth Movement, alternative theories that the U.S. government either allowed the attacks to take place, or carried them out.

Considering the government has allowed the NSA to conduct searches of domestic phone records and bank records and made countless intelligence blunders regarding weapons of mass destruction, it's hard for some people not to believe in a conspiracy.

I don't have any opinion on this issue, but others do and more might, if they watched some of the video posted below.
