Abstract
This special topic poll, conducted November 27, 2001, was undertaken to measure respondents' opinions regarding the United States military action in Afghanistan, possible military action elsewhere, and the investigation of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Respondents provided an approval rating of George W. Bush as president and indicated their levels of support for United States military action in Afghanistan, against other countries that supported terrorism, and against Iraq to force Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein from power. Those polled also expressed their opinions on the status of United States military action in Afghanistan and whether the capture or killing of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden was worth a large number of United States military casualties. Views were elicited on the role the United States should take in establishing a new government in Afghanistan, providing food and economic aid and sending peacekeeping forces to Afghanistan, and taking military action against terrorist groups that tried to re-establish themselves in Afghanistan. Respondents also indicated their level of confidence in the ability of the United States government to prevent further terrorist attacks against Americans in the United States and whether the government was doing all it reasonably could to prevent such attacks. Respondents were queried as to whether the United States was doing enough to protect the rights of average Americans, Arab-Americans and American Muslims, non-citizens from Arab and Muslim countries who were United States residents, and those who had been investigated for suspected involvement in terrorism, as well as whether they supported the federal government's plans to interview 5,000 Middle Eastern men. Respondents indicated whether they believed that non-United States citizens charged with terrorism should be put on trial in the United States criminal court system or in a special military tribunal. In addition, respondents gave their opinions on the legality of wiretapping conversations between people being held on terrorism charges and their lawyers, and on the United States government holding 600 people in the investigation of the September 11 attacks. Background information on respondents included political affiliation, education, ethnic background, age, and gender.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03364.v1
