The German weekly newspaper Die Zeit publishes a survey by the respected organization Forsa which finds that 19 percent of Germans believe the US government, or elements within it, were behind the 9/11 attacks. 31 percent of those under 30 are found to believe this. (Reuters 7/23/2003; Gavin 9/9/2003; Connolly 11/20/2003) Several popular books are on the market in Germany, questioning who was behind 9/11. (Johnson 9/29/2003; Bernstein 10/1/2003) In response, the newsmagazine Der Spiegel runs a major cover story rebutting some of the theories proposed in these books. (Der Spiegel (Hamburg) 9/8/2003) A senior German government official dismisses the poll result, saying:“There’s a group of people in every country who will believe any nonsense.” (Bernstein 10/1/2003) In June 2005, a popular German crime show on German state television (ARD) will air an episode involving the premise that the Bush administration ordered the 9/11 attacks.
