Just What the World Needs...
Another David Ray Griffin conspiracy theory book.
Griffin has written eight books on the subject with another on the way: "Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory."
The appointee, a former Harvard professor named Cass Sunstein who now heads the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, co-wrote an academic paper saying government should undermine conspiracy theory groups by infiltrating their chat rooms, social networks and group meetings.
Griffin believes "cognitive infiltration" is the wrong term. "It's more like fascism," he says.
Now personally, I think Sunstein's idea is a silly waste of time, but I am not sure how you get "fascism" out of it. I have studied European history pretty thoroughly and I don't recall a significant portion of Hitler or Mussolini's policies being to send people to dissident meetings and suggesting "you know, you may be wrong". Griffin must be really hard up for material though, if he is going to devote an entire book to a 30 page academic paper in which 9/11 is not actually the main subject.
