There are chilling similarities – but fundamental differences too
On December 7, 2001, a Gallup Poll ran the following headline:
“Americans Say Sept. 11 Will Be More Historically Significant Than Pearl Harbor.”
That December 7th day when Gallop ran that headline marked the 60th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. But it was also just a few months after the September 11th attacks in New York and Washington – when many Americans were comparing the events in 1941 to those that had just occurred.
