UNAC Survey Reveals Anti-War Movement’s Support, and Fear, of 9/11 Evidence

Editor’s note: These are the detailed statistical results of the survey that AE911Truth Congressional Outreach Team Leader Wayne Coste and other 9/11 Truth activists conducted at the United National Anti-War Conference (UNAC) in March. They provide insight into some of the issues that prevent many in the anti-war community from acknowledging the evidence that the WTC skyscrapers were intentionally demolished.
One of the mysteries of the 9/11 Truth movement is why the anti-war movement has been largely opposed to recognizing the facts surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. One would expect that exposing the 9/11 underpinnings of the current wars as fraudulent would result in the reversal of support for the wars once the public learns more about how they have been misled.
An example of the opposition to the 9/11 Truth movement is the inability to get resolutions passed in convention plenary sessions of organizations like the United National Anti-War Conference (UNAC). This is due to vocal opposition of peace and justice leaders and the use of procedural maneuvers. For example, Stan Heller from the Middle East Crisis Committee went to the microphone at the UNAC conference and said “9/11 was a waste of time — because we have wars to stop!” In a private communication, one of the key organizers stated,
“The majority of those in attendance simply do not buy 911 Truth and do not want it made part of their political program. […] We (i.e., the UNAC leadership) cannot make people vote yes […to include 9/11 Truth resolutions in …] the antiwar program that they see as false and harmful. You have not convinced people, and I hardly think that you can hold UNAC, of all groups, responsible for that.”
This particular leader believes that we “have not made our case.” However, many of us have had peace and justice / anti-war activists agree with our assessment once they have been given the facts. This is especially true in recent years as the unimpeachable technical analysis and credibility of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) have shifted the dialogue toward the evidence and away from the “whodunit” finger pointing.
To better reach out to these activists, several AE911Truth Action Groups encouraged participation in the UNAC convention. As one approach to better understanding the sentiment of the attendees, we developed a survey consisting of 13 questions. The goal of this activity was to better ascertain the knowledge and positions of those who attended the conference. This survey represents a unique outreach activity to quantitatively document the knowledge and understanding of many of the participants at the conference.
