Because Sunstein explicitly states that "9/11 conspiracy theories" are his main focus, virtually all interpreters have agreed that Sunstein's call for what is essentially another Cointelpro Operation is directed specifically against the 9/11 truth movement. (Cointelpro, or "Counter Intelligence Program", was the FBI's name for its high-priority operations to infiltrate, provoke, undermine and disable civil rights, socialist, antiwar, black power and Native American movements during the late 1950s and the 1960s.) The fantastic picture Sunstein paints of the 9/11 truth movement as "harmful," "dangerous," and likely to resort to "terrorism" suggests that he is serving a function similar to Philip Zelikow's during the Bush/Cheney years; in his own way, Sunstein too is a "myth-maker."
In his new book COGNITIVE INFILTRATION David Ray Griffin has provided the first truly adequate response to Sunstein's deeply-flawed and legally-questionable arguments.Read more ›

This essay was first published online in January 2008, by which time Griffin's earlier books had presented overwhelming evidence that the events of 9/11 were an inside job and that the public have been told a gigantic lie, aided and abetted by corporate media.
Indeed, so watertight is the case against the official account that only a deeply ingrained belief in the moral uprightness of the United States -- fostered over decades of selective and tendentious reporting by corporate media -- can account for the fact that about half the population still appears to believe the official account.
So dependent is Sunstein and Vermeule's essay on this brainwashing that, as Griffin shows, they do not even attempt to answer any of the evidence adduced by the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Indeed, so threadbare is Sunstein's `case' that, as Griffin suggests, one could almost suspect that the essay has a sub-text, intended for the more perceptive readers, the intention of which is to prepare the public for eventual acceptance that 9/11 was, indeed, the result of conspiracy by U.S. officials.
Pathetic though Sunstein's 'arguments' are, the thrust of his essay is extremely sinister. In his failure to even attempt to rebut a single shred of the evidence against the official story, he proposes instead that government agents should infiltrate the 9/11 truth movement with a view to disrupting their campaign.Read more ›
