34% of Americans Believe US Elites Exploited 9/11 for Gain

Brown University’s Cost of War Project released a November 14 estimate that half a million have died and that the spent and obligated cost of post-9/11 US wars through fiscal year 2019 is $5.9 trillion. This financial cost is comparable to the 2020 forecast GDP of Japan. The average US taxpayer has been tapped for $23,286 for the wars since 2001, according to Brown’s 2017 update.

How do most Americans feel about this immense diversion of wealth and carnage? When asked, "Brown University says the ‘global war on terror’ caused 480,000 deaths, uprooted 21 million & cost more than $6 trillion. Did US elites improperly exploit 9/11 for gain?" a surprisingly high percentage – roughly a third – of Americans replied that "Yes, elites did exploit 9/11 for gain."

Question #1: Brown University says the "global war on terror" caused 480,000 deaths, uprooted 21 million and cost more than $6 trillion. Did US elites improperly exploit 9/11 for gain?

Roughly a third of Americans believe ‘Global War on Terror’ turmoil is manufactured and now want to criminally prosecute government officials who – oftentimes on the basis of enormous, now indisputable lies – plunged America into perpetual war. When asked, "Brown University says the ‘global war on terror’ caused 480,000 deaths, uprooted 21 million & cost more than $6 trillion. Should the US leaders that backed it be prosecuted?" 34.3% responded "yes, they should be criminally prosecuted" in yet another statistically relevant poll of American adults.

Question #2: Brown University says the "global war on terror" caused 480,000 deaths, uprooted 21 million and cost more than $6 trillion. Should the US leaders that backed it be prosecuted?
